FE11: Shadow Dragon Localization: “I’d just always assumed Manaketes looked somethin’ like parakeets.” [JPN vs ENG]

This post is part of a series on reader requested (and personal curiosity) comparisons between Fire Emblem games’ Japanese and English scripts.

Today, I look into an old reader request involving some dialogue from Chapter 5 in Shadow Dragon! (Sorry it took so long!):

I’d just always assumed Manaketes looked somethin’ like parakeets. Sheesh…

I bolded the relevant part. This can’t work in Japanese, can it? Isn’t the Japanese for Manakete “Mamkute” even? Any wordplay at all in it?

Short answer: No wordplay is involved, it is a case of localization just punching up a line. It only exists in the localization.

Let’s take a closer look!

FE: 0 (Cipher) Tiki Card Translated

I have decided to typeset card translations onto Fire Emblem: 0 (Cipher) from the hard working Aubergine’s compendium. I alter the translations slightly here and there to better fit onto the physical card space, and occasionally correct any minor mistakes. They should get all credit for the majority of the translation though. If you want the higher quality PNG, please email me! Below is the space-saving JPEG.

Please support the authors by buying a physical copy yourself! It makes for a fine addition to any Fire Emblem or manga collection, and does not cost much either!

UPDATE: [5/12/2015] It is now complete! The project started on 1/26/2015 and has finally been completed. See download link above!

ORIGINAL POST [1/26/2015]:

I recently got a copy of “Fire Emblem Awakening: Yonkoma Kings” (ファイアーエムブレム 覚醒 4コマKI)

I will be scanning, cleaning, and translating them. Each page has its own post, but this is the compilation post of my total progress thus far (and will be stickied at the top until completed).

Of course there may be some breaks to post other things, but I hope to be consistent. I will not offer the raw scans on this site, but feel free to ask for them in email if interested!
