FE Heroes: Sakura’s Kitty Paddle? [JPN vs ENG]

Today is a quick post from a reader question regarding Sakura’s “Kitty Paddle” and what it is in Japanese.

So I took a  look:

Kitty Paddle
猫の暗器
Cat’s Anki*

You will notice I didn’t translate “anki” as there is no real descriptor for it. Most literally, it means “hidden weapon” (or dark weapon, or illusive, etc).

Today’s post is a short one and a reader request:

“…I dunno something about this line just seemed localization-only to me lol <attached picture> What was it in Japanese?”

The picture is above, and is from the Lake Kingdom brochure. There was another line this reader was curious about too, which I will address in this same post as its short:

“…and there’s this other line that says like “there’s even a deep end” that also felt localization-only. <attached picture> Can you look into it too if you have time? Thx!”

That second one gives me a chuckle. I felt it may be interesting to look into, so let’s see!
