If you’re a fan of Fire Emblem, then you’ve no doubt come to learn about Manaketes. They’re the dragons of the series, and they’re practically as well known as the blue-haired lords that were there at the birth of the franchise; Tiki and Bantu made their appearances as recruitable characters in the first game. Furthermore, you’ve likely come across some varieties of art of various Manaketes across the franchise, from the various iterations of Tiki across the main games and spinoffs, to standards in the main games such a Nowi or Fae. Now, what if I told you that there was a fan base out there that appreciates Manaketes so much, that they created a fan-zine to show their love?
Look no further than towards this, the Manakete Millennium! Manakete Millennium is a SFW zine dedicated to the Manaketes and dragonstone-wielders across every Fire Emblem game, from Shadow Dragon to Fire Emblem: Heroes! They aim to showcase and celebrate dragons in both their humanoid and draconic forms, in both canon and crossover settings.
The zine features over 40 creators: 25+ artworks, 10+ fanfictions and various merchandise (including digital goods and physical goods), and all proceeds will be donated to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (https://www.ifaw.org/). I can’t turn my nose up to a fandom that supports charity!
