Where's the love for Arihiko?

Unread postby Hyperbeast » September 25th, 2007, 6:45 pm

This needs to be asked, because I've come to think of Arihiko as my favourite character in Tsukihime's world.
In Tsukihime he was an enjoyable minor character, but it's in Kagetsu Tohya that he shines. The conversations with Shiki throughout the day, and in particular the conversation over bowels of ramen at night.
And of course, let's not forget the Nanako-chan SOS! sidestory, which shows us parts of Arihiko's childhood and his relationship with Shiki. While it does show him to be a rather odd character, he has a sort of hidden warmness to him. He's almost tsundere.

That and he's never included in the favourite character polls. A grave injustice.

Hmm... I think ur right... Arihiko's kinda one of the cool characters of the Tsukihime series... Hell, I like him more than Kohaku xD I mean the things u find out about him in KT are interesting, but I think he never gets included in the favorite character polls, 'cause he's kinda.... Normal... Or is just shown that way... Anyway, I think normal characters of the Tsukihime world usually get the short end of the straw if u know what I mean...

It's cuz he doesn't have boobies.

Seriously, if he was a chick, fans would be all over him.

Well, you got a point. Every char that doesn't have a special feature or power doesn't appear on the popularity polls.

And he doesn't die. Practically every character dies at least once,(and comes back:P) but he's almost never even in danger!

Except when Shiki drop-kicks him
Tsukihime drinking game. 1. Every time a word or a phrase is repeated 3 or more times, take a drink (eg. This chair).
2. Every time Shiki claims not to understand something already explained, take a drink
3. Every time Shiki doesn't realize someone is hitting on him, take a drink.
4. Every time someone who should be dead, isn't, take a drink.
5. Every time Shiki does something ridiculous with points\lines.

Damn, I never thought about it. Shiki is so dangerous.
