The latest of my daily scan/clean/translation of Fire Emblem if (Fates): 4Koma Kings (ファイアーエムブレムif 4コマKINGS).
This is an individual post for Page 100. The compilation post that features all pages thus far is here!
I do not post the raw scans here, but you may email if you want them to compare translations! I do at least one page per day.
All scanning, editing, translating, and uploading is done on my free time and is rather time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. Any amount (no matter how small) is much appreciated and helps me keep going on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy the end results of my work!

- The joke in Japanese revolved around two idioms. Both idioms relate to weather, and also contain the word “fox” (kitsune) within them.
- The first is 狐日和 (kitsune biyuri) which literally translates to “fox weather,” and is used to refer to fickle weather that is unpredictable (like a fox).
- The second (both the title and punchline) is 狐の嫁入り (kitsune no yomeiri) which literally translates to a “a fox’s wedding.” It is used to refer to sun showers. Kaden is about to remark that its called such, but then springs to hug Selkie not wanting her to go get wed!
- To convey this joke best I could (as English lacks a fox/weather equivalent) without also having to explain or change the entire joke, I simply opted to show the reader that the Kitsune refer to the weather with these phrases, (with Kaden saying “we call this” or “we refer to it as”). Even if the reader speaks no Japanese, they would hopefully accept that this is what these strange Kitsune do! Conversely, that helps emphasize Keaton’s point in the end, too.
