So ok, I think that’s all the manga that’s out there, or the ones I could find. You’ll have to go help me find out if there are others, and also start praying that some kind soul will actually translate all of these. That will be cool. Anyways, I’ll attempt to cover the completed Fire Emblem weekly (let’s shoot for next Wednesday), while I’ll tackle those not so finished monthly (on Saturday). Sounds cool? Cool. Now go join me by finding some place to go read them!
