Today’s Fanart Friday is a tribute to one of the most rewarding sidequests in all of Zelda. It seemed only fitting with today being the release date for Majora’s Mask 3D and tomorrow being Valentines Day.

Kafei is a young man who is desperately in love with Anju,with the two being engaged, but due to the actions of the Skull Kid, he has been reverted to the form of a child. It is Link’s task to reunite the two during the course of his journey, which results in one of the most intricate and emotional sidequests in the entire series. This piece by sythiar of Deviantart captures the mood of these characters’ stories perfectly in his piece “Kafei and Anju“. In a world bent on destruction and everything seemingly going wrong, the love between these two characters is a beacon of hope, which is why “Kafei and Anju” is today’s choice for Fanart Friday.

    Best side quest in Zelda, ever!!:)

    I think it is because we spend so much time with them, and that they feel like real characters with honest griefs and sorrows! Completing this side quest felt great, not because of the item you get for completing it.. but because you truly felt the problems at hand needed to be resolved! There was a personal engagement in their story, over time.. Not just; Here are some info, find this thing, deliver it- kind of thing(which at times there is to much of in Zelda)

    So yes, love this side quest, and Im looking forward to completing it once again, this time on the MM-3DS Im so fortunate to own!:)

    Amazing picture, well done!!:)
