Majora's Mask:

This is the third Zelda novel drawn by the two women who call themselves Akira Himegawa. It's The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. I'm not sure as to how closely this follows the actual N64 game. I never had any desire to play Majora's Mask, so I don't know the exact story, but the novel is very well drawn and quite enjoyable to look at. I probably won't be posting it here though. The reason is because the really cool webmistress at Zelda no Densetsu has already posted and translated the whole manga into English.

Majora's Mask Review by Willow:

Majora's Mask is Akira Himekawa's second manga, which takes place shortly after Ocarina of Time.

After defeating Ganondorf and saving the land of Hyrule, Navi, Link's fairy partner and friend, had disappeared. Feeling he must see her again, Link embarks on a new quest to find Navi.

With his faithfull horse, Epona, Link begins his search for Navi in the Lost Woods. All is well, until something causes Epona to rear up on her hind legs, throwing Link to the ground and knocking him out of counciousness. Once Link woke up, he found himself face-to-face with a skull kid, the lost children of the woods, who was rummaging through Link's belongings. Surprised by Link's conciousness, the skull kid hops onto Epona and makes a run for it with Link's precious Ocarina of Time.

In a desperate attempt to get his horse and instrument back, Link follows the creature by racing on foot. In doing this, Link unknowingly falls into another dimension and finds in himself in the city of Clock Town, located in the land of Termina.

This town seems as normal as any other, except for the fact that an ominous moon was lingering in the sky in the middle of the day. Rumors said that the skull kid is the cause of the problem and the moon will fall in three days, destroying everything in its path. Will Link be capable of stopping the skull kid's evil plans, retrieve his priceless ocarina, and save the lives of the people of Clock Town, without losing his own?
