Tsukihime's real ending...

Unread post by aallx » May 18th, 2008, 2:58 am

*May contain spoilers*

Just curious, Kagetsu Tohya is the direct sequel to Tsukihime is it? I haven't really played Kagetsu Tohya yet besides the very first day, but curiously enough, Arcueid is there right on the first day. As I've said, I haven't played the game far enough yet, so I really shouldn't make a concrete conclusion, but based on the fact that Arcueid is there, with having a seemingly close relationship to Shiki, then wouldn't Tsukihime's real ending be either Arcueid's or Ciel's "good" ending leaning more to Arcueid's? Because all the other endings either has Arcueid leaving, while the far side route doesn't show her at all (maybe her back).

Well, is Arcueid's good ending really Tsukihime's real ending?

Nope. Tsukihime was a sequel of sorts, but it's not Tsukihime 2. It's one big fundisk and sidestory compliation.

Basically, no. I think it's generally accepted that Arc's true ending was the 'true ending', but we won't know for certain until there is an actual Tsukihime 2. Hope that helps.

I see... so basically, what you are saying is that Kagetsu Tohya is canon while the same time it is not? So I should assume that is a parallel universe kind of thingy? Or maybe it's all just a dream sequence or something?

I have read so many topics like this...
Er...it probably follows arcueid good ending..though if my memory doesnt fails me, they refer to kohaku as nanaya there..
(does kohaku even appear in KT? XD)
"...One must wait continuously, one must pursue endlessly.
They must realize that it was impossible to succeed yet
at the same time be capable of enduring patiently.
Is that... the story of a dream that shouldn't be waited upon?..."

It is a sequel of sorts, but it's more like a sidestory. As far as I know there is no canonical sequel to Tsuihime. Here come spoilers:

Taking that into account, and a lot of other reasons that I don't even mention, you can't take this as a serious sequel. I take it more like a "what if", the same situation is applied to melty. Personally, I currently can't consider any of the endings as complete canon. I did it and failed when I was pointed that I was wrong.

Well, in short, yeah.

If any of you would have played the game, you would realize that it does not have ANY hint of what route really follows. And that everything that happens there is a dreamworld created by Len, even the prologue. The only thing for sure is that nobody is dead,except sacchin. Len creates the dreams mixing other people consciousnesses and dreams, how the characters acts and what happens is pretty much the real thing. Sacchin is dead so she does not have a consciousness, thus is not in the dreamworld. isn't it sad?

Then you can dismiss most of the far side endings as a prequel to Kagetsu Tohya. I cannot speak for Kohaku's ending since I haven't finished that part yet, but...
► Show Spoiler
So it all comes down to the endings where everyone is alive and still has a sane mind, and that would be the near side route, correct?

Not neccessarily, I would just finish Tsukihime/KT first before coming onto the board and reading the threads. There are a lot of spoilers here.

You'll find out the answer anyway when you play it, why ask in advance.

I don't neccessarily want to spoil myself or anything, and most of the replies aren't really revelations of sorts (except those in spoiler tags, but I don't read those).

I'm not really prying into Kagetsu Tohya itself. I'm simply curious as to what may possibly be the "real" ending of Tsukihime. Now if we consider Kagetsu Tohya as a true, canonical sequel to Tsukihime, then simply by deduction, we can narrow down the possible candidates as Tsukihime's "real" ending.

Right, but it's not the true canonical sequel.

I hope there they announce one soon, but at the earliest we won't hear of it till 2009.

As I stated before, if we consider KT to be canonical, which is not, the only endings that could be considered canonical are Arcueid's or Ciel's Good Ending, since in those are the only ones where Len shows up (the dream familiar that makes Shiki have a wet dream) and Arc and Ciel stay.

2) The Tsukihime remake is slated for 2010-12 and with translations you wont be reading anything until 2011 so yeah nobody start praying not to add on the time for MM to consider even doing the project and if TM is using the same engine which may affect translation status, btw this is official information for those who can't read the TM website announcements....

Didn't know about the official release date, thanks for the info. Let's just hope that they won't be pushin' the date back...

Yeah... I wasn't too optimistic to begin with so it doesn't come as much of a shock but... well it ain't no good news either, man... We can just hope they put into the package some really nice shit, like 2 or 3 intros and, if raptor jesus wants it to be, animated endings!

Well, they gotta turn on the money-makin' machine, boy. They are part of the game industry and their main goal is getting the cash after all.

I actually am interested in what those "stupid magicians" and Aoko have to say 'bout their story so, as long as they are awesome enough, I'm 'kay with it. Does anyone have their official realase date?

P.S: Is it against the rules to talk about anime fansubs?

I rather have a tsukhime 2 myself but that doesnt mean that a game about "those magicians" wont be good. Just like how many tsukihime fans may have an attachment to it and wants to see a sequel, TM might have an attachment to Mahotsukai no Yoru, since Nasu did write it before he wrote Tsukihime, and may genuinely just want to express its story. Besides, I rather have a good sequel that comes later rather than a bad one that comes now, good ideas take time sometimes. Also, it may not be good idea, financially or not, to release a sequel to a mass that does not know the events of the original game; hopefully the remake will help on that end.

As for the "true end" of tsukihime; some people speculate that the events of the "Talk" side story, which most likely follows Arc's true end, may hold some elements and potential for the true sequel to tsukihime. But this side story may simply be another possible event that follows the original game, such as the side story in KT that happens after Akiha's true end. I personally think Arc's true end have the most material and potential for a good sequel though.
