Favorite Tsukihime Route

Unread post by metal_cocoabo » October 20th, 2008, 3:18 am

The topic's pretty self-explanatory. I assume for you guys as well, there is that one route that you can't help but play again even if you had already beaten it and even if you know what's going to happen. Alternatively, there's that one memorable scene in that route. Of course, if you like the route's heroine, it can also qualify as a favorite route. So, post away.

I'll start: Personally, I like Hisui's route best. Unlike the other routes, Hisui's route isn't as action-packed but I like the way that Nasu made 10+ days of lying around in a bed interesting. It also contains some of the more touching moments in Tsukihime. Just don't get me started on that Kohaku-hijack...

It was a bit hard, between Hisui and Kohaku, but, in the end, Hisui's True End was... well, an image in another thread can explain it way better. So, that made me decide Hisui :)

I went with Kohaku just because I believe she's the female character with the most depth and planning behind her, made her route and her involvement in Hisui's route astonishing to me.

Makes me wonder why their story seems the deepest among the others....

The most unique out of the bunch. There are parts of all of the stories that I liked, but Hisui and Kohaku's stories just seem to flow.

It's been a long time since I've played, but I'm thinking either Ciel or Hisui. Ciel is obviously the coolest character in the game, but Hisui is so darn moe... >__>

Akiha...

What can I say, I'm a sucker for crappy endings. Not to mention I have a major weakness for oujo-sama characters, especially if they have long black hair and DFC >.>

Hmm... tough choice. This might call for another play-through before I pick.

I don't have a favorite really.

Arc's route is the reason I started to play the game and important for me, so I guess I always have strong feelings for that one.
Akiha's route was just great and who can resist imouto? Plus the endings were really nice. Also yumizuka <3
Kohaku's route was definitely the most wicked one, so most enjoyable :D

Tough call... I'm going to have to go with Kohaku, her character design is brilliant. I've never come across a character more interesting, in any literary format. I'm also a sucker for happy endings, and Kahaku's ending was (in my opinion) the happiest out of any of the endings (Ciel's good ending comes pretty close).

The other option was Hisui's route, another brilliant character and fairly decent story. However, I found the days of Shiki being bed-ridden were just at little too repetitive for my tastes. Had this not been the case, Hisui's route may have topped Kohaku's.

This was an extremely hard choice to make. All the routes present in the game are extremely fun to read and present really unique characters. Definitely worth the small fortune I spent in acquiring it.

Hisui. I like her development, and she switched with Kohaku as my favorite after Hisui's route. And Kohaku's route only partially redeemed her in my mind.

For me tough choice between Arc route and Akiha route.

I'll go with Arcuied route.

I'm assuming A cat is fine too... refers to len slightly ;)

Minus a hilarious doujin read...

Anywho, i think Len from KT is absolutely the best route of them all. I really liked her character the most

However in just Tsukihime, i would say hisui since her character appealed to me the most. Kohaku came in a very close second, followed by Akiha, Arc, and Ciel

I believe I will not vote in the poll because I don't have a favorite amongst the routes. Each one is different and is after something else. They are all AMAZING so, to me, having a vote on them is meaningless.

This is a big toss up. Ciel's is my favorite, Hisui's is damnedably original, Akiha's is so different from the rest, and Kohaku's is the one to tie them all together. In the end, I'll go with Ciel, as she is awesomesauce.
