FE6 and FE7 (Elibe Games) “Choose Your Legends” Poll Results Analysis

Nintendo conducted a poll for Fire Emblem Heroes urging fans to pick a favorite character of theirs that they would love to see featured. Each fan could vote once a day for 13 days for almost any character from any of the main Fire Emblem series of games.

This is part of a miniseries I am doing on analyzing the vast amount of poll data available to us and what it means for the fandom and their favorites regarding characters.

Thanks to the tireless work of Elieson over on serenesforest.net, we can take a look at the break downs by game!

Today we will focus on FE6 (Binding Blade) and FE7 (Blazing Blade). The latter is the first Fire Emblem game that came to the west, and indeed it shows! Combined they form the Elibe games.

There are some general things to keep in mind before we get started, however.

Fire Emblem: Famitsu FE Series Reader Poll Translated (June 2015)

fire-emblem-lords

Last year (2015), Famitsu conducted a poll from June 11th through the 15th. In celebration of the 25th Anniversary for Fire Emblem, they polled readers on various questions about the series as a whole.

I translated the first two pages earlier on this post here. They are specifically about characters. These last two pages deal with favorite game, class, weapon, etc. A lot of fun insight from fans back in June 2015.

The raw scans are available upon request. I hope to apply these translations onto the page eventually (which is when I will provide them too)!

Note that this was conducted before Famitsu’s Fire Emblem Fates poll, which can be viewed here.

I purchased the Famitsu volume that included this poll with money received from your kind donations. : ) This is all done on my free time, and takes awhile. It can be a lot of work, but I do hope you enjoy! I am unemployed… so please consider donating by clicking on the “donate” button found on the right side of the page!

Fire Emblem: Famitsu Overall Favorite Character Poll Translated (June 2015)

fire-emblem-lords

Last year (2015), Famitsu conducted a poll from June 11th through the 15th. In celebration of the 25th Anniversary for Fire Emblem, they polled readers on various questions about the series as a whole.

UPDATE: Part 2 (page 3 and 4) are up! They deal with fans’ favorite games, class, etc. See it here!

There are four pages of results, two of which I translate today. The other two will be up later! Note for these translations I only translated the results and player opinions, as the rest was general information about the characters/games which fans would already know. All raw pages will be put up after I finish the last two pages! But some lower res scans of the first two pages can be found here and here.

This was conducted before their Fire Emblem Fates poll, which can be viewed here. I do not think Fates characters were included in this poll, as the game was near release.

I purchased the Famitsu volume that included this poll with money received from your kind donations. : ) This is all done on my free time, and takes awhile.

Today is Kantopia’s 2nd Year Anniversary

It’s just a portfoli-blog, but it seems to have gained some sort of following thanks to the comic translations and stuff…

So it’s nice to get comments now and then. Two years now, 749 posts (including this one), and a lot of translation work/portfolio material.

Here’s hoping it leads somewhere career-wise. But, even if it doesn’t, I’m glad to have helped bring things to those that enjoy reading them!

Have a pseudo-site-mascot Lilina I drew to celebrate! Here’s to another year!

Looks sort of like meeting her in MyRoom…should make a sprite for that!

If you see the above appear on this DeviantArt account, don’t freak out. My friend and I collaborate and post our pictures to the same gallery. xD

Thank you!

Super Smash Bros. Melee: Roy’s Character Intro Webpage Translation

This image is from and created by the amazing Nirbion for SourceGaming

Today, I present an article from SourceGaming that is a translation of  Roy’s Smash Bros. Dojo introduction back during the Super Smash Bros. Melee days.

Please read it here in full!

However, I did edit it onto the webpage in a style that imitates the original page as close as I could possibly make. All translation credits go to Soma and PushDustIn of SourceGaming this time around.

 The images below give a preview for the final product. Full resolution coming soon!

Fire Emblem: Binding Blade (FE6) Original Elibe Map + Comparison

FE6cover

From the Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development Secrets 25th Anniversary art book comes some more development documents. Today, we look at the continent of Elibe during the development stages of Fire Emblem: Binding Blade (FE6).

It was translated in collaboration with VincentASM of serenesforest.net. His in-depth analysis on the matter will be coming soon!

You can find these scans and much more from this book on the compilation post here. This one is found on Page 331.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating in some cases, etc) took a lot of time, and I am unemployed… so if you like what I did, then…

Please donate! It helps fund future projects!

Enjoy!

Roy’s Original Design Illustrations Translations – FE 25th Anniversary Book

Fire-Emblem-25th-AnniversaryToday I take a look at Roy’s designs that lead up to the one we know and love today from the Fire Emblem 25th Anniversary Artbook. I translated the main notes next to the drawings, but could not make out many of the scribbles next to the pictures (due to how small it was and how messy the handwriting is). so decided not to translate those parts.

These scans and much more from this book can be found on the compilation post here.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating in some cases, etc) took a lot of time, and I am unemployed…so if you like what I did, then…
