I was impressed with Ciel's, except the whole "suppression" thing
But it's been at least 1 or 2 years I've played through it all, waiting for the remake instead of doing it again

Came out of my lurkdom and registered just so I can vote for Akiha's route! :D

Although some of the other routes are more complete and heartwarming (Kohaku's route comes to mind), Akiha's route was more compelling. I just don't buy the "everyone's happy" approach to some of their backgrounds. I mean Hisui's and Ciel's maybe...but Arc? Kohaku!?!?

Yes...if it is not obvious from the spoiler, my opinion, route-wise :
Ciel<Hisui<<Arc<Kohaku<Akiha

I'd have to go with Akiha's route...followed by Hisui, Kohaku, Ciel, and Arcueid, in that order.

I have to disagree with Arcueid's "duty" to hunt down dead apostles. She's not even killing them, she's just after Roa. And Roa is dead. As to why stay with a punny human, why not?

Besides, she seems to be the type to have a harem of puny humans - not just one :D

I haven't played the game in forever, so it's hard for me to make a decision. What does stand out in my mind though was Kohaku's route, if only for the fact that it contained Shiki's greatest demonstration of skill.

I need to go reread it but I am thinking about waiting for the remake. Will MM translate the remake?

I hope you're the patient type. Should MM translate Tsuki2, prepare to wait for a little while. Like 2-3 years :\

Tsukihime 2 is set to be the first TYPE-MOON title to feature live action cutscenes and online multiplayer capabilities. Additional features include the new 'Outside of the Moon' routes -- confirmed heroines include Taiga Fujimura, an English teacher in Shirou's Shiki's school, Mecha Hisui, a cyborg version of Hisui after she saved Shiki from a disastrous cooking accident, and a cat.

It's been a while since I last played the game, but I voted for Arcueid since is the one I remember liking most (although maybe being the first route played, and having seen the inexistant anime before may have had some effect on it). My order was Arcueid>Ciel=Akiha>Hisui=Kohaku. Arcueid's it seemed to me the most realized (although Ciel's and Akiha's are not much behind hers); while Hisui's I found somewhat dull and Kohaku's not as good done (mainly the relationship Shiki-Kohaku, which I found forced). (On my last replay of Far Side I liked more Kohaku's, but my opinion of the relationship stands)

Personally, I liked Kohaku's route. It struck me as the most powerful, although Arcueid's were good as well.

While I like all the routes equally for the most part (except Akiha, who I could never like for some reason) I voted Arcueid simply because it was one of the first VN's I read, started off with a bang (or a cut >_>) and never stopped being awesome. My favorite char from tsukihime is like another person said, Ciel is damn awesome but Hisui is so moe.

As you might imagine, Akiha's route is my favourite closely followed by Hisui's. I'd put Ciel as my last one though as I just couldn't link with her character.

Wow... what the hell? 7 percent for Ciel???? Come on! She has a GREAT route! Why do so many people not like Ciel???? I think she is an amazing character with plenty of depth and conflict.

Ciel does have a good route. Personally, I just prefer Akiha and Hisui's over hers. It has a lot to do with their persona and character design. Ciel's somehow just didn't click for me as much.

So little love for Hisui? I actually thought there wouldn't be much of a difference between Arc and Hisui.... Haah... seems I was wrong...

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Well, Arc's route is more action-packed than Hisui's. Though Hisui's route has more moe-moments. Ending-wise, I felt that Hisui's had more impact than Arcuied's --

I love Hisui too. I wish I could vote all of them.
