FE Heroes: “Do my best!” [JPN vs ENG]

She’s been saying this since FE7, actually!

Today’s post is a quick look at a line that has become a bit of a meme for the FEH community (especially on Nino from FE7/Blazing Blade).

Beyond Nino, many other characters say it. It’s actually based on an extremely common Japanese word, and this post is just to show you all the little variations in Japanese that all became (mostly) “do my best” in English.

So let’s take a fun look at this.

FE Heroes: Bridal Tharja’s innuendo with the “Three-Choice Question” [JPN vs ENG]

My fellow Fire Emblem translator and colleague Rey (known as @shadwofchaos725) made an interesting observation on a quote said by Bridal Tharja upon summoning in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Namely, the quote had changed between languages likely due to its innuendo. Let’s take a quick look!

Fire Emblem if/Fates: 4Koma KINGS Page 49 Translation

The latest of my daily scan/clean/translation of  Fire Emblem if (Fates): 4Koma Kings (ファイアーエムブレムif 4コマKINGS).

This is an individual post for Page 49. The compilation post that features all pages thus far is here!

I do not post the raw scans here, but you may email if you want them to compare translations! I do at least one page per day.

All scanning, editing, translating, and uploading is done on my free time and is rather time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. Any amount (no matter how small) is much appreciated and helps me keep going on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy the end results of my work!

Fire Emblem Fates: Luna to Selena (Names Comparison)

Today is a very brief post on a Fire Emblem Fates localization development. The game has been sent out for review copies I assume, and many streams and the like are popping up online. According to serenesforest, Luna has been named Selena.

I talked about how Syalla had been changed to Rhajat, and Matoi to Caeldori… so now let’s take a look at this one. A lot of this post may reflect the same things from the last post, mostly for people who had not read the other post. Excuse the redundancies that may come about as a result.

Note: Spoilers for some things from the game may follow. Though, nothing about the main plot beyond very indirect references will be spoiled, but just in case, please proceed with caution. There is one paragraph I made in black text with spoiler warnings to help people avoid it at the end of the post.

Fire Emblem Fates: Matoi to Caeldori (And a few other things)

Today is a very brief post on a recent Fire Emblem Fates localization development. The game has been sent out for review copies I assume, and many streams and the like are popping up online. According to serenesforest, Matoi has been named “Caeldori.”

I talked about how Syalla had been changed to Rhajat, so now let’s take a look at this one. A lot of this post may reflect the same things from the last post, mostly for people who had not read the other post. Excuse the redundancies that may come about as a result.

Once all the names are revealed, I hope to look at some of the odder ones. (Marx to Xander…?)

Note: Spoilers for some things from the game may follow. Though, nothing about the main plot beyond one very indirect reference will be spoiled, but just in case, please proceed with caution.

Fire Emblem Fates: Syalla to Rhajat (And other localization questions)

Today is a brief post on a recent Fire Emblem Fates localization development. I already talked all about the Soleil controversy yesterday, but in a related statement, Nintendo revealed a character name, too. So today I wanted to address the character now named “Rhajat.”

In fact I hope to get to other character localization things in the future (Marx to Xander…?) but will focus on this one for now, as it brings up some questions that apply to a few other characters who we do not know the localized names of yet.

Note: Spoilers for some things from the game may follow. Though, nothing about the main plot beyond one very indirect reference will be spoiled, but just in case, please proceed with caution.
