Scanlations aside, has the Tsukihime manga been officially translated into English or is it only in Japanese? If so, I'll order a few volumes online.

Yeah, Dr. Master just published volume 5 a few weeks ago. Amazon.com has all of them in stock right now.

Apart for the fact that Dr.Master's quality isn't anything to talk about. I get mine (vol 1- 5) straight from Kadokawa, and its quality is so much better.

Yup, nobody cares about Ciel. After all, its only Ciel-senpai.

i actually bought all 5 volumes at once down at minotaur the other day (some pop culture store here) and i must say, the manga's a really good read, it explores on each character's powers a lot more and many scenes are a lot more interesting

definetly prefer the manga, bad thing is i got ones by Dr.Master and yea.. theyre not really that good, but the manga's so great that you dont really pay too much attention to the bad fonts and stuff

Is there another version of the manga not done by Dr. Master?

There is no - and will not be a - different legal version of Tsukihime manga in English. Unless Dr. Master sells its license rights to someone.

Shiki looks really cool in the cover page. I can't wait to get my hands on that one.

I've been staring at this thread for a while, and NOW I finally remember what the Tsukihime manga was. I read the 4 volumes out, and it's pretty good. The publisher I bought from kept the Japanese and had the English translations next to it. I found this to be very nice, and it was sorta a way to pick up a little Japanese as well. They dropped this approach in volume 2 and after, and only had the English translations. I didn't like it as much after that, but it was still good.

The publishers released a collection of the 4 volumes in a package, but I was pretty sure I saw a 5th volume of the series as well, which got me quite lost. There was also no words of a 5th volume either. Ahh, I'm confused -____-.

i have volume 1 to 4 in English (bought em at a place called Marche clandestin in Montreal)
and soon i'll get volume 5. what i hate here is that it's rather slow for manga to come out. between the release of the original and it's English translation, it takes around 3 to 8 months...anyway. about that 6th volume...am i hallucinating things or is Shiki holding...a sword?

Lack of taste, i tell you ..
that being said, the manga is just way better than the thing that doesnt exist

hey guys... did you noticed Yumizuka has disappeared from the manga?
In chapter 49 and 50 she isn't in the Classroom.
maybe the Manga's author wants to show her in her Vampire modus.
ahhhh that would be awesome.
Yumizuka sccin the only Vampire in Tsukihime that acts like one...

Did anyone else thought that Arcueid is a bit bigger in the manga? Or more that she looks bigger.

I've read up to volume 4... i want more.

I think I'm on 4th or 5th vol
and the only thing I remember is that it's past the rape scene

Say. Why does no one like Ciel? It's not the greatest of characters, I know, but i find her likable in a way. I don't position each character in a bar and number them, so I can't say that she is in the bottom of a list, but I don't like her as much as Kohaku, Hisui or Arcueid, but she's comparable to Akiha for their quirkiness.

Found vol 5 in my local bookstore, and the bastards hid it in one of their trolleys out of sight! It was a miracle that I spotted it.

Besides from the typos and all, I quite enjoyed vol.5. I can agree that it does follow the story pretty well, but I can't even remember the order things happened in the VN properly. Wait...
Rape Arcrueid? The one which gets you a BAD END?

I guess we'll be seeing an ending sooner than we thought :lol:

え? There's signs of volume 6 already?

Well, technically speaking,
it's not a rape scene, but he does grab her breasts in a forceful manner, I think he licks her vagina, and almost does rape her, but, as in the game, he stops, feels like shit and goes on to kill some bad dudes for the lulz (although the killing part I guess it's manga only).
By the way, in the game,
if you follow the rape scene AS a rape scene, do you automatically get a bad ending even if you got all the points for Arcueid? because, as I remember, it doesn't really matter what choice you take, the dialog after it is the same.
