I know all those stuff already, but I wasn't interested in the OVA before. Well, now's the chance to see a bit of that. I'm still not too interested due to the fact that it ended abruptly after two episodes though.
I look forward to the later parts covering the non-Kaga games.

It's been a hard day today at my side. Seeing this coming out made it all worth it.
I'd say that both IntSys and NOA don't really care about westernizing the series had more to do with it than mere timing issues. The latter refuse to sell anything they don't think will sell, and the former seem to be content that their games are released in just some regions (see the original Panepon, Fire Emblem 1~5, pre-GBA Famicom Wars, Battle Clash and Metal Combat, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, Card Hero 1~2 and so on).
I loved the aspect of actually being a character in the story, even as just a tactician. Having the characters occasionally turn and talk directly to me really pulled me into the story and connected me to the characters more. I was really disappointed to learn that none of the other Fire Emblem games did this. I think this sort of "second-person" narrative should be used more in video games.
The second DS game had something like this, but instead of being a tactician you were an Altean knight working for Marth. You could customize your appearance and class while interacting with all the characters.

At this pace, by the time this series is done Fire Emblem 15 will probably be out.
Unexpected ending! Once again, excellent video. I don't know if this series is actually suitable for non-FE players though, since a lot of information understandableonly by players did show up. (And to the existing fans, the "surprising" parts are hardly surprising, and thus I'd say this definitely isn't made solely with existing fans in mind.)

Whoa. I thought the narrator lost interest since the last time. In the meantime, two main series games, a crossover, five waves of trading cards, two concerts and a whole bunch of other merchandise popped out. (Okay, most of those happened in 2015 and 2016, but still.)
"Part of the reasons this game is easy is because you can grind for experience." Huh. I found it easy without grinding — in Normal, anyway. Hard does require some thinking, but it still doesn't need grinding.
In terms of story, the language versions don't differ that much. An instance of alcohol reference removed and changed to something entirely different (Garcia and Dozla), and I think that's it.
I think any feelings Lyon has towards the twins are just his one-sided thoughts. Seems to me that it's an effect of having no other friends.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
