Hello! Been awhile!
Yesterday, twitter user
CyanYoh posted a compilation of silly pictures that are from . Trekking on the World of Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade
These come from a strategy guide written by Enix (the same that would become Square Enix). They wrote guides for all three GBA FE games. They are guides written in a fun fashion that certainly keep the reader entertained throughout while also being informative. They have amusing little drawings at the start of each section which is what CyanYoh posted in their thread.
Fans on the thread wished to see the artworks from the
Binding Blade and Sacred Stones as well. So I decided to scan those ones as I happened to own the books and make a full compilation post for the fandom’s reference.
These are all also in an
imgur gallery for your convenience as WordPress isn’t the most intuitive place to read these. Please enjoy whichever is easier for you to read!
Please note that all scans of the FE7 book are from CyanYoh and have been uploaded with their permission! (Which saves me a ton of trouble of scanning those images myself, so thank you!)
Lastly, I provided translations as captions below the picture where they are needed. I did not typeset as I usually do due to time constraints. Likewise, I did not translate the chapter names. The picture often has to do with the chapter itself, so there may be some lost context. I hope I can revisit and translate all titles for you all too in the future… but hope you all can enjoy the silliness without the context for now, regardless.
