Searched and didn't find a thread on this, so...

For those of you not in the know, there's also a Tsukihime manga. It seems more based off the nonexistant anime than the game, but it also has elements from the game's non-Arc routes along with new and very different things.

So on that note, for those of you reading it, what do you think? I finished volume four last night and am eagerly anticipating the rest. I also think they managed to make Ciel kinda cute, and for me who has Ciel at the very bottom of the TYPE-MOON girl ladder, that's quite a feat.

I like it so far, I've only read two volumes. I ordered all four, but apparently the third and fourth got out of stock about the same time as I ordered them, so I guess I'll get them some time soon. Since it've been about a month now..

I can't agree with you Hyperbeast, Ciel will always be down. I don't like her in the manga either, she's not cute in the manga :(
But I do like Shiki with the Nanaya personality a lot.

Anyone have any ideas when the fifth volume will be released?(I suppose it's not)

Well I did still say she was at the bottom of my list...

And no idea about when volume five will be released. Supposedly there's a lot more of Nanaya Shiki in volume five.

Some scenes kinda bugged me though. For example, both regarding the "dream" Shiki gets for helping Arc...
While I'm glad they went with Shiki having the sex dream rather than the nonexistant anime's version, it bugs me that he didn't tell Arc it was her. That was kind of one of the more dramatic parts of the game, with Shiki trying to come to terms with Arc being a vampire and Arc that Shiki would see her in that way. There's also the construction area fight, which didn't make too much sense in the way they edited it. I mean, it has Shiki seeing Arc's eyes, saying "The only one that can molest Arcueid is me!" (or something along those lines) and then proceeding to kill all the dead, but then the lack of molesting would probably be a time of confusion for people who haven't played the game. ...Maybe that scene will happen later? But being that Roa's already appeared (in the SHIKI version, which I also find odd) probably not.


About half the manga's scenes featuring Sacchin also left me thinking: "Isn't it sad, Sacchin?"

I like ho the manga is very different from the anime. It mixes game, anime and new things, which makes it fun to read.

also, nanaya personality rules ^^ I missed the rape scene too :( I hope it comes later. I hope it gets a bit more over the edge then this, but its nice to read already ^^ Ciel and Akiha fighting is certainly interesting :3 Weird thing was the fence and Ciel repairing it from the begin of the game xD Got me like, wtf they included it, somewhere else in the story line even :P I'm curious about the rest tho ^^ Wonder what kind of new things they think up :3

The fighting with nero in the manga is much more interesting than the anime.

But less interesting than the VN, some parts of the fight made less sense, and some small details that made it interesting are, are gone. But above all, the dialog is pretty different in the explaining of things, not improving on the VN :( But it was indeed way more interesting than the anime.

Shiki told Arc it was her in the dream later on. And yes, the scenes will happen later. The art quality the way better than the anime in my opinion, by the way.

Anyway, Tsukihime anime is really really really really really dissapointing, much to the fact that they HAD to include a bath scene. This is like the trademark low point "let's gather more audience" + "get more rating" (which is of course, called a booster shot or something along those lines) of baaaaad animes.

Also, it doesn't, or at least tries to, make sense at all.

Yeah it sucks.
I don't think Tsuki would make a good anime even though they would remake it ( the anime).
It lacks action and it has too much dialoge.
