If anime existed in Breath of The Wild, what would be the champions and Link's favorite?
*cracks knuckles* Time to show off my power level.
Link: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The show’s themes of never backing down and always pushing forward no matte how bad the odds may seem resonate with him deeply. He especially relates to how both Simon and Kamina suppress their worries and anxieties in order to become a symbol of hope and courage for others. He holds Simon especially as a personal role model and aspires to be as inspiring and confident as him.
Zelda: Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Politics and large scale warfare in space? Our Princess is all over that like butter on toast. Living in a world comprised of black and white morality, to have a work like this where both sides of the conflict occupy a grey area of sorts is incredibly refreshing. While she favors the Galactic Empire over The Free Planet Alliance (believing a centralized monarchy to be a much more efficient form of government and less prone to corruption,) she can’t help but feel deeply invested in characters from each side of the conflict.
Mipha: Spice and Wolf. Non-human woman in love with a man who she will outlive by centuries? Does that sound familiar to anyone? In all seriousness, she watches it for the chemistry between the two leads as they ravel across the countryside. The schemes are genuinely exciting and they actually do have something to offer in terms of economic knowledge. Now she’s just upset that there hasn’t been a third season yet.
Sidon: Also a fan of TTGL but more for the rousing speeches and awesome fights than any kind of personal relation to the characters. He’s also a really big fan of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (part 4 is his favorite), can frequently by caught striking absurd poses and has adopted Jotaro’s “Yare yare daze” catchphrase for his own personal use when he feels like acting cool.
Daruk: The original Dragon Ball. Please don’t bring up Dragon Ball Z or Super around this man unless you are ready for a long winded rant about how the franchise has drifted away from the martial arts focus in favor of beam spam and power levels. The original holds a charm for him that none of the sequel series have ever managed to capture. His favorite parts are the various World Tournament Arcs but the character he feels the most connection with is Android 8.
Yunobo: Doesn’t have a singular favorite but prefers the softer and quieter shows like Haibane Renmei, Hyouka and Clannad. Of course he has to take long breaks inbetween viewings of Clannad. Anybody who’s seen that anime can tell you why. Even the music from that show can be enough to make a fan choke up. Recently a friend introduced him to Girls Und Panzer which swiftly entered his top five.
Revali: Will never admit to watching anything more entry level than Cowboy Bebop but has a definite love of My Hero Academia and it’s themes of accomplishing things based on your own merits and ability without the aid of others. As some one who seeks to succeed on his own strength without relying on those around him, this anime inspires him to push himself further.
Teba: Monster. A doctor wrongly accused fleeing across Europe in pursuit of the true killer whose life he saved many years ago. A deep look into the psychology of criminals and the factors that lead to them becoming that way. Teba finds all of this and the characters involved to be fascinating. He especially enjoys the development each character goes through on this journey as the mysteries surrounding Johan Liebert unfold and evolve.
Urbosa: Doesn’t really watch a lot of anime but has made a point on staying caught up with the Berserk manga. When she was young she would compare the voe she met against Guts as the standard for what a voe should be. It wasn’t until she was a bit older that she realized she may be setting her standards a bit unrealistically high. Then Link comes along and she instantly regrets being at least ten years too old for him.
Riju: Full Metal Panic. The perfect blend of action, comedy and romance. It’s like the show was tailor made for a young Gerudo warrior who doesn’t leave the town often and wishes for a strong, resilient voe to sweep her off her feet. Now if only she could get the oblivious, military minded voe in her own life to notice her…
