Today is just a brief post that isn’t really a translation/comparison/trivia post, so please feel free to ignore it. It’s a rare actual-blog/picture sharing post.
It’s a special friend’s birthday today! She reminds me of the Mia sort and often associates with her. At the same time, to celebrate my most recent Radiant Dawn clearing (and Mia being in first place as a result), today is a random post about Mia.
This post is part of a series on reader requested (and personal curiosity) comparisons between Fire Emblem games’ Japanese and English scripts.
Today’s post concerns a reader request and personal curiosity regarding Barte and Karla’s A support ending in Blazing Blade (seen above). Thanks to some vague wording, it caused a bit of confusion as to the character Bartre’s fate.

So it’s vague as to who is saying the last speech bubble. Takumi up until then had pink bubbles. Thus, I assumed Leo to be safe, and so the translation becomes more akin to “That is how I feel/guess/etc.” But if it was Takumi, then the translation could be “I can sympathize,” which would be a fun joke that throws back to Hinata (Takumi’s own subordinate) being sacrificed as Fury fodder. I felt it’d be a better punchline, but I have to tread carefully as to not take too many creative liberties.
After asking for audience opinion I decided to go with “I can sympathize” after all.
