The mansion isn't the best Zelda Dungeon but I's certainly one of the most convincing in term of architecture. It FEELS like it really used to be this big mansion Oo

Hikaru no Go is a great anime about growing up, playing go (obviously) and making friends with people. And there is an english dub (that I've never seen so I don't know how good it is... ) !

Pitch : The main character becomes the best friend and student of the ghost of a go player who is kept around by his desire to play the perfect game of go. Although Hikaru has some rivals at the game he eventually befriends most of them (or befriends them before being rivals). There is a strong gay subtext too between Hikaru and his main rival (well... strong for an anime from 2001, so maybe not that strong ^^). The main theme of the show is that one can't achieve greatness on their own and needs others to push/pull them forward.
Side effects may include : wanting to learn how to play go

The only caveat regarding violence is the very beginning, because the backstory of Sai (the ghost) pretty explicitly includes suicide. The story doesn't dwell on it and there is nothing graphic, but I figured I'd mention it.

EDIT : Welp ! I'm watching it again :')

Iirc you can make the goron curl up instantly with that shield attack you learned from the skeleton hero (probably not useful by now).

By the way the identity of that dead hero is never stated in the game but I'm pretty sure that him being yvax sebz gur bbg puvyq gvzr yvar, jub jrag gb grezvan is more or less canon, or at least so ubiquitous fanon that it doesn't matter either way :)

Most big cities today all around the world have several points that can be considered historical growth nuclei, because as it grows the city absorbed neighboring villages and communities (which were also growing). To take the example of Paris (where I live), the city of Paris per se originated from the Île de la cité, where Notre Dame de Paris now sits, as well as a bunch of national institutions, but other parts of what Paris is today used to be villages, abbeys, etc...

This history has mostly been erased by big 19th century urban projects, but some traces remain in the names of places and weird angles in streets that don't really make sense at first glance.

In other places like Brussels, they didn't completely fused the municipalities together and the actual city is very small while administratively grouped with a bunch of other cities around it : Ixelles, Etterbeek, etc...

EDIT : added a bit of detail in my first paragraph

It's funny I hate these exact things with all my being -- and it's the main reason TP is my east favorite Zelda game :/

But I loved the graphics in WW that so many hated at the time, so I guess there is something for everyone in this series !

Skyward sword on wii needs the wiimote extension that makes the motion control a bit better than vanilla wii games ( I don't remember how common that was...).

I do remember being annoyed at times but overall the game did what I wanted. Still, l wouldn't want to play it if I had any wrist issue, there are too many timed motion controls in that game Oo
