Step one: Use Nosferatu.

Step two: Win.

You forgot adding Galeforce to that list.

I will give the best advice in this topic.

Leave.

The game does a good enough job explaining itself. Don't worry about optimizing and just have a fun time using whatever units you want.

You only get one first time through a game.
Democracy is a theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it, good and hard.

I'd strongly recommend playing on Casual unless you know in advance exactly what you're getting into. If you play on Classic, you'll either be constantly resetting whenever someone dies, or locking yourself out of content (including entire levels and recruitable characters) whenever someone dies.

lmfao no

awakening is b**** easy even to newcomers
Mistranslation, plot hole, or bad writing?
When characters get to S-Rank support, they get married (and each character can only get married once). Some people don't realize this and find it to be a surprise.

Definitely play Classic mode, permanent death and having to play in a careful manner so that no characters die is a staple of the series. Even Hard/Classic wouldn't be too bad for a first timer, though it probably will be challenging.

Sometimes you will have non-boss enemies with unique portraits and names that will talk before the battle starts, you can talk to them in battle with someone in your army to recruit them.

Awakening isn't too punishing in terms of missable things as far as Fire Emblem goes.

Have the tactician land the final blow. That's all I'm gonna say as pretty much everything else has been said. Actually one more thing make sure a Unit's best skill is in the last slot at all times. Especially when starting a paralogue.
You ever wondered, you know really wondered?

This is the best advice I think I've seen on this site. Not just on this topic, but like, ever.
