Fire Emblem Cipher: Series 11

Recommended Posts

Yeah I was surprised to see them show up this soon, I'd have thought they'd begin a day later as usual. I wonder if maybe it'll be the start of a new trend, I wouldn't mind that.

Not specifically related to Series 11, but I'm just now noticing that Akira Fujikawa recently started posting albums of their FE Cipher illustrations on Pixiv, many of which were never shared before. Here are links to the relevant albums and which character cards are featured in each of them:

 

Series 10

Leif R, Forrest HN

 

Series 9

Alm N, Gray N (both previously released on Twitter)

 

Series 8

Tharja R, Tharja N (same as Alm and Gray)

 

Series 1~7

S1: Marth N, Ogma ST

S2: Forrest R, Forrest N

S3: Priam HN, Greil ST

S6: Claude HN, Forrest HN

S7: Hisame HN, Hisame N

 

They also contributed the art for the new Xander and Ryoma in Series 11, but have not posted them anywhere yet at this time.

 

This illustrator seems to sometimes also be credited as Shoko Fujikawa, but I don't believe this correct and is meant to be spelled in English as Akira Fujikawa according to FE Heroes (for Celica).

 

May any of this information be interesting or useful!

Thanks! I got a bunch of those added to my albums. Someday I'll go back and do albums for S1~S5, but it is not this day.

Random thought: I hope someone will be able to translate or at least transcribe the special talk CD to be sold at Comiket later this month. I'd love to know what the characters will converse about. I'm also pretty interested in seeing what other new artwork can be found in the special artbook, the Lucina one is great sample in my opinion.

I'm too poor to get anything from Comiket this time around, but TheTanooki's almost certainly getting everything, so you could probably get in touch with him in terms of getting the audio files for a possible transcription/translation and maybe artbook photos/scans.

 

Also, my S11 pull photos for anyone interested.

Nice Elise/Sakura playmat too! I never knew you owned that as well.

 

I didn't think Clive's card could look any more radiant, but it does!

I actually got the playmat rather recently thanks to a friend! flower; He had been reselling some of his Cipher stuff to fund other things and he was willing to sell it to me at cost. He treated it very well and I'm super happy to have it since I had wanted to get one ages ago but scalping prices were way too expensive for me.

Intelligent Systems updated their Comiket 93 page with a visual of all the stuff that's going to be at their booth.

Nothing new but it's nice to see everything on display. I quite like how they chose to design the calendar, each month looks like a card.

Dengeki Nintendo confirms that their February issue will include a new Eirika promo! No idea if Nintendo Dream will offer anything or not, but if they do I would imagine it'd probably be Ephraim.

And now, Eirika looks terrified.  Can no artist get Eirika to have a decent war face?

To be fair, you'd be pretty terrified too if you put on a bracelet and suddenly materialized a horse.

Well, he hasn't gotten a matching magazine promo yet, so for all we know he might be terrified in that one.

 

Honestly, though, Ephraim seems like the kind of guy who would at least be able to fake a stoic demeanor in such circumstances.

Nintendo Dream just released the cover of their February issue but it doesn't mention anything about FE Cipher on it, so I'm starting to think it may not have any promos.

Enjoy a nice pair of Tikis from Fuzichoco's Twitter they're sampling, with the full image you can find in the special Comiket book!

 

About Comiket, I think it looks like they'll be starting up another Twitter account for those interested in keeping track of product availability at their booth as they have in past years, which you can find with the handle @FEcipher_C93. It's not set up yet but I'm suspecting it will be within the next few days.

 

Random thought: I wonder if the person who used to cosplay Felicia and Flora will be there again? I don't recall seeing them anywhere since around the time the Faith & Engagement piano arrange CD released earlier this year.

I like how there are already 9 people (myself included) following the Cipher comiket twitter even though it has absolutely nothing yet.

 

I'm not even sure why I'm bothering to follow it since I'm too poor to buy anything this year and I'm just going to be salty. :P

Some other updates:

Intelligent Systems provided a page about the upcoming regional qualifiers, and have revealed that these two promos of Tiki and Nowi will be handed out to participants as a set in advance of Cipher Sai 2018, where they will also be given out. We had seen the art for these two before, but now we know when they'll start distributing these, which will be from January 21 to February 25 at the qualifiers.

 

In the latest column update, the topic for the group is all about Comiket, and they include a variety of images relating to the merchandise to be sold there. They also include a sample video of the drama CD (I think Xander is supposed to be the mystery guest listed in the track list?), where in the video description you can also see that @FEcipher_C93 is indeed the Twitter account you can follow for official updates specifically about it.

While Comiket is going on, Intelligent Systems is also hosting a year-end banquet, and like other events they hold like this, they put on display various artworks for the most recent and upcoming sets, which include new artwork of interest!

Lissa by Tetsu Kurosawa (there are shots of this without the signature, but I liked this photo best)

Sigurd by Mayo (rough seen before, but now finally completed)

 

I also saw the promo art for Tiki and Nowi on display but I don't remember if the full art was ever seen before or not.

Lissa and Sigurd are the only new ones, yeah, but they're looking great! I know the focus right now is on Comiket, but I hope we'll start getting some more information on S12 soon.
