How's my Zeldanalysis?

Hey folks, some of you know me, most of you don't, but I'm SD. Let's just get down to brass tacks here: I wrote a post for my pop culture blog, Hopped on Pop, and it's about the Zelda series. It's got two sections: the first is why I think that awesome 25th anniversary AG+ piece encapsulates one of the reasons I think Zelda is one of the greatest Nintendo franchises of all time, and the second is about the often controversial question of a Zelda anime series. I take the second part to discuss why I don't think it's happened yet and what sort of alternatives are out there.

The reason I come to you all is this: I'd like to get some feedback from some real fellow Zelda fans. How'd I do? I've been a fan for many years, but I've hardly spent any time interacting with the larger online community, save what time I've spent here over the last couple years. So I want to know from some seasoned community members whether I got the right idea with my analyses. Don't hold back as sugar-coating never helped a single writer, but don't be a bully; I will not respond to bullies.

Anyway, tell me whatcha think!

The Enduring Legacy of Zelda Hopped on Pop

Hey Super Dude,

I see that you just made this thread today, so try to give it some time for someone to reply instead of bumping it.

Well an anime series did happen in like the 80's or early 90's. But from what I've heard is that it sucked.

I can see from your time zone that it is the same day, but for me it's an evening and the next morning.

Yep, that'd be the "certain misstep" I referred to a couple of times. Although it was created by an American developer, so it's not strictly speaking anime.

Still less than 24 hours though.

Just a general rule to consider.

I have the complete series on dvd. It's not really terrible. On its own as a cartoon, it's better than some of the crap cartoons on tv now. It's a terrible representation of Zelda games, but it's slightly entertaining.
