Looking at that gif frame-by-frame in Photoshop is sort of looks like it may even just be compression artifacts.

It's got three long bits with little arrow-like bits at the end, going clockwise. They look just like the three clock hands.
I still don't really see it.

So I googed for something that could change gif speed, and I found this site.

If anything, it looks less like a clock to me that way. It looks more like some weird shadowy blob doing, er, something in her eye.
I don't know what to make of this.

Yeah, basically:

There are so many interesting theories out there about the new game! There is one about your first big decision being to choose between East or West, and another one that suggests the Avatar is the one trying to sink (or something along the line) the Dancer girl (which would make sense, actually).

It isn't really clear, but it reads "Generic head, no hair".

I'm really curious to learn more about the game. I also hope that they keep the "If" title. It's so pretty.

Yeah, basically:
Well, I was ninja'd by like, 3 minutes. Sometimes I take 20 minutes to make even the simplest of post.

I'm not sure if it's compression artifacts, though, because it does seem like it's meant to be rotating. But I'm definitely not an expert in this stuff. I know what compression artifacts are, but I don't know how they act in animated videos or whatever.

I kind of hope not, actually.
I mean, we already saw this sort of scenerio once with the Validar/Robin/Chrom thing.
It was cute one time, but it would be kind of lame to make the avatar possessed by some evil demon a second time.

The whole thing about the MyUnit in "if" being a Lord instead of Tactician makes things really interesting because it would mean that the typical "Lord" role would have to be portrayed by someone else beside a Lord class. It does make sense for Kamui since it means something like "Divine Command" in Japanese and we know all well how the main character has ties to a Divine Entity. Maybe the blue haired dancer is going to be the main regular character like Chrom in Awakening but that is stretch for now since we don't now that much about the game.

Besides, the first cutscene like thing in the trailer does look like it's in some sort of castle. Maybe this might be Kamui's castle or one of the Dark Knights castle? What does this mean and is if this is how Kamui and the Blue Hair Dancer meet? That would be interesting plus this could be another "The Two Falchions" type of thing with it being early in the game but not in the first early parts of the game.

On the other hand, the game comes out this Summer/Fall in Japan and could be a late fall/winter title if Nintendo does decide to bring more info to E3 in June. I too hope it keeps the "if" in the title since it is quite fitting like how "Awakening" fitted Awakening.

Golden Sun 4?
I have to admit, I am much more excited for Fire Emblem if than I am for Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei. I feel the series is more adapted to handhelds than to home consoles. I like the idea of having a diverse army ready at your fingertips.

I have read if some places that some people think that this could be a prequel to Awakening, and these are Chrom's parents and their army, but if that is the case, we all know what inevitably will happen to them...

Yeah, seen that way, it does seem redundant. But what if Kamui does have the ability to be... this thing that sinks the dancer on purpose ? What if it isn't "evil possession" ? That could turn out to be quite interesting.

I don't know how to feel about this, to be quite honest. I like having magic at hands rather than swords, but I guess it would be interesting to be a Lord this time around.

I heard about the prequel theory too. It would be pretty cool, as long as you can decide who are the parents. I want the pairings back. >:[

I would say by looking at the Japanese names for these characters , it's safe to say which faction the unit will be involved in , Kazahana and Hinoka are both quite Japanese names , whilst Max and Felecia are originally from the West.It's confirmed that Max is a playable unit and I have a theory,since the Western are considered the antagonists,maybe Max will realise that his father,the King watching the dancer is leading the western force and wants something more , when he realises , Max will join the Eastern Faction and fight his father's forces.Kamui however,maybe he is prince of the eastern faction and even though Max is fighting with them,Kamui is suspicious , similar to Frederick being suspicious of Robin at the beginning of Awakening

It's been confirmed that it doesn't connect to any other game with characters and plot,so I don't think it'll happen if it means Chrom and Emmeryn will get a cameo.

I'm personally hoping it's a later Magvel split after the Grado disaster.Long shot,but the Great Knights looking like Magvel Great Knights is a hint.

So it isn't connected to Marth's, Ike's, Roy's or Eirika and Ephraim's timeline ? That's odd. I was honestly hoping it would continue in someone's timeline, specifically Marth's.
Curious to see what it's going to look like, though.

It could be.It could just be fair removed.Plus,Fire Emblem games have their own timeline,so it could be in Ike's timeline and not the others.And I've had enough with Marth's timeline for a while.FE1,FE2,FE3,FE11,FE12 and FE13 were too much.I'm also a Magvel and Elibe nerd.

Ike's timeline is probably within Awakening's. Priam is Ike's descendent if nothing else, but supports with Panne & Olivia also mention things like the lion tribe and the naesella story

e: & obviously that would link it with Marth's


are 4 & 5 part of that timeline too? I didn't know there was anything linking that beyond some dlc dialog in awakening
