FE 25th Anniversary Comiket Staff Book – Page 38 Translation

ComietB01-02

Today’s translation comes from the Fire Emblem 25th Anniversary Comiket Staff Book. It was a small book that featured notes and artworks from the game developers. I do not own this book, so all credit for the raw scans goes to an imgur gallery kindly uploaded by kingddd.

I am not translating these in any order, and simply by interest/request. I may get through the whole book eventually, but we will see!

Feel free to donate if you are feeling kind. Any amount, no matter how small, really helps me out : ) (The donate button/link can be found in the top right corner of the page!)

I took a look at Page 38!
