For those who've read it, is it good and how's the story + action?

I actually felt it to be inferior to the Tsukihime manga. Character art is strange, and the fighting scenes isn't all that great. Story wise, it roughly follows the "Night of the Blood Lair" route, with extra stuff thrown in, like Sion meeting Akiha.

Yeah... the art style is so-so. It is quite inferior to the Tsukihime manga. Don't get me wrong, it is a bit entertaining.

Yeah, a bit... Less action than Tsukihime.. The art is different (I like Tsuki art better) and the story ain't too kewl :?

I've got the manga in my house, but unfortunately I can't read Japanese =(.

Woe is ye, I feel your pain.

But it's not THAT bad. I mean, if you don't look at it as a piece of the nasuverse francise, it's actually fairly good.
In terms of character design and such :wink:

Seriously though. You guys seen the F/Sn manga?
I'd describe the horror, only I'm not too sure about this boards rules on swearing.

I may be wrong, but I seem to recall the manga mentioning that Shiki killed Satsuki in an alley (and then Tatari/Satsuki appears), however that never happens in any of the tsukihime routes, as Satsuki is always killed in the park...

Could this be seen as insight onto the fabled Satsuki route, or just a dumb mistake?

Satsuki's place (and manner) of death change quite significantly.
pretty sure it depends on
a) how you act to her (how hard you look for her, and your answer to her question)
and b) whose arc you're in.

It's a lot worse(and short). To the point of boring. I suppose it's to emphasise that it was accidental, and to make sure Shiki didn't agonise over it for most of the twin's arcs.

Try picking one of the twins, not searching for her as much as you can (without dying, she goes to find you if you don't see the "bloody hands" scene), and then saying "I hate you" when she confesses.

I also seem to recall that one time, she killed me when I picked the "Dunno, lol" choice.
On the subject of weird endings, just how ~DO~ you get geka geka animal land ?

but maybe in the remake they will do a better Teach me Ciel-sensei...
I mean...Tsuki deserves it and the fans too.
If they only want me to buy because of the Saccin's route they can go and "saccin"* themselves in hell!!
Anyway...if I think about this...I should make a new topic...


*: censorship.

I'll buy the remake BECAUSE of Sacchin's route AND for the sake of COMPLETING the story...and not for a better Teach me Ciel-sensei EXCEPT if going for all dead-ends and taking all of Ciel-sensei's "lessons" unlocks some more extra stories or extra features.

Looking at the difference between "old tsukhime" (am I the first to call it that?) and fate, I'd be very not-surprised if they did.
And I do hope that "vampire exterminating howitzer" makes an appearance. Quite badly.

Also, looking forward to cell shaded backrounds. And a remix of "under the moon".

Perhaps yet another "emiya" remix to keep the running joke?

Yeah, I mean... who knew that the Tohno family keeps a cannon in their mansion?! Ok, Ciel has a pile bunker but...a cannon as an anti-vampire weapon? It's not like they'll just stand still. Maybe the Dead would just zombie-walk in a straight line and BOOM! MULTI-KILL!!!

Nah, it's anime.
So naturally, if they shoot it dead straight into the air, the wind will carry it onto the vampire's heads. After all, it works for archer in unlimited codes.
Or maybe it's like caladolg, and has such a massive explosion it doesn't have to "hit" in the strict sense of the word.

Or perhaps Akiha's hair keeps them in place while it's wheeled into place by the twins? :wink: (that is quite an epic image)

PS: Derailing is more fun than I thought.

I can imagine it now...

Hisui: Akiha-sama, we're ready to fire.
Kohaku: Coordinates set, are you ready Hisui-chan? se~no~
Akiha: FIRE!

BOOM!
