These come from a strategy guide written by Enix (the same that would become Square Enix). They wrote guides for all three GBA FE games. They are guides written in a fun fashion that certainly keep the reader entertained throughout while also being informative. They have amusing little drawings at the start of each section which is what CyanYoh posted in their thread.
Fans on the thread wished to see the artworks from the Binding Blade and Sacred Stones as well. So I decided to scan those ones as I happened to own the books and make a full compilation post for the fandom’s reference.
These are all also in an imgur gallery for your convenience as WordPress isn’t the most intuitive place to read these. Please enjoy whichever is easier for you to read!
Please note that all scans of the FE7 book are from CyanYoh and have been uploaded with their permission! (Which saves me a ton of trouble of scanning those images myself, so thank you!)
Lastly, I provided translations as captions below the picture where they are needed. I did not typeset as I usually do due to time constraints. Likewise, I did not translate the chapter names. The picture often has to do with the chapter itself, so there may be some lost context. I hope I can revisit and translate all titles for you all too in the future… but hope you all can enjoy the silliness without the context for now, regardless.

You can tell I took some liberties with some of the SFX in places, but the original JP remains in tact for readers to enjoy hopefully without cringing.
I may take a look at some of the other silliness the books have to offer, but for now, that’s all from me!
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! I’ve made a few other posts on it already (just search “comiket” in the top right search bar).
Nearly a year ago, a reader left a request to do pages 14 and 15 of the book, which feature a conversation from the Awakening cast (specifically, Severa, Lucina, Nah, and Kjelle). I thought it may be translated already, but upon searching I didn’t come across anyone who did…
It took awhile to translate since it’s essentially a bonus conversation as if it was in the game or the drama CD. I don’t think it’s been translated yet, so here it is. Sorry it took so long!
I spent the last two days translating an interview about the newly released Fire Emblem Echoes. It was featured in the June 2017 issue of Dengeki Nintendo (released April 21st, 2017).
A big thanks to VincentASM on serenesforest.net for sending me the scans. Please link back if you use any part of the interview as I put a lot of time into it. The original scans of the interview are available only by request, as well as the Japanese transcript I (re)typed up.
Some important questions are addressed, such as where the title came from, why Gaiden, and other fun tidbits of other Fire Emblem games. Enjoy!
This post features two unused portraits of Elena and Ashera found within the book on the character relationship page. See notes for more info!
You can find every translation I’ve done on this book so far on the compilation post here!
As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of time, and I am unemployed…so if you like what I did, then…
Please consider donating! It helps fund future projects!
UPDATE: (Jan 19th): Interestingly the Fire Emblem Heroes website uses that same Elena portrait in super high quality:
I do not recall seeing these two portraits used anywhere in the game or in the cut content. Apologies if they were already known.
The “112” simply refers to the page Ashera’s profile is found on. Elena lacks a number as she lacks a profile in this book.
They are actually from pg 40-41, made an error on the image above! They were found on the character relationship chart within the book, on page 41 and 42.
They lack full body portraits, and are not featured in the full portrait gallery within the book.
The above has been magnified 200% from the original scan for better visibility, but may be a slight loss in quality. Anyone interested in touching it up from the original can ask for them in the comments or email!
Ever since the update we got a high quality image above!
UPDATE (June 26th) : Bulk download is now available! Find link below.
UPDATE (June 23rd): The project is now complete. You will notice individual pages still post the next few days, but all pages are available below. The bulk download will be up soon! (Probably on Sunday, June 26th). Thanks to everyone who supported me, and a big thank you for everyone who donated! I aim to look into the upcoming Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn design books next!
My copy of Fire Emblem if (Fates): 4Koma Kings (ファイアーエムブレムif 4コマKINGS)finally came in! So my third Yonkoma book translation project begins! Spread the word to anyone interested.
All scanning, editing, translating, and uploading is done on my free time and is rather time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work, and I am unemployed… so please considerdonatingif 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!
Here are today’s pages! (Page 06-07) They feature Kamui.
Like last time with Fire Emblem Awakening: 4Koma Kings, I scanned, cleaned, translated, and uploaded them myself (with a few cleaning exceptions, credited on their respective pages). Each page has its own post, but this is the compilation post for all pages in one neat place.
This book contains full body artworks of every playable character in FE14 (if/Fates) as well as two four panel comics that feature each character on every page.
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!
I will not offer the raw scans on this site, but feel free to ask for them in email if interested!
I’ve been hooked on making Mario Maker levels recently! I noticed in the booklet that came with it, there were some small (and hard to read) bits of Japanese writing here and there. I don’t think many really care, but for those out there who may randomly be curious, here’s some bits of it. I’ll have more tomorrow, when not making levels…
If anyone can read and write a transcript of the Japanese here, I’ll gladly translate it. Some bits were missing:
