Description: The story follows Tohno Shiki, a teenage boy who, after a near-fatal accident in his childhood, gained the mysterious power to perceive lines covering everything around him. When he cuts along these lines, whatever it was immediately falls apart with a clean cut; in other words, killing it. He would have quickly gone insane from living in a world that could fall apart so easily, had it not been for a wandering self-proclaimed magician who gave him a pair of glasses that blocked his unnatural perception when worn.

Soon afterwards, he was disinherited from his family and sent to live with some relatives. For eight years he lived a normal life, hiding his special eyes, until one day he receives a letter inviting him to come back home. Shiki suddenly becomes caught up in strange and life-threatening series of events, ones that are somehow linked to his childhood accident and a forgotten past...

I'm about to reread this because I found it again on GoBoiano. Then I might read the VN because I hear it's great.

Definitely going to re-read this though

Tsukihime DOES have an anime: I hear it's god awful.

The joke is Tsukihime's anime is so bad people deny it exists

Why is the manga always better than the anime.

Tsukihime - Anime doesn't exist, play the game.

Fate/Stay Night - Deen: "Let's portray Shirou as even more blockheaded and one-dimensional than in the actual fate route! Character development? What's that? Oh, and who's up for bondage Sakura?" Play the game (or the new anime, praise blessed Ufotable in their all-encompassing grace and mercy, we are not worthy).

 

But in both cases, they both got manga that stuck to the "introductory" route while managing to feel like complete stories without sacrifices and ended up really solid. Why couldn't the animes be anywhere near this good?

 

Edit: Wait, nvm, I was wrong, after getting into it more FSN manga is to be avoided. I just assumed the best...

Nope, the part where you see Shiki on the grassy field at night and meets Aoko after all those years (8 to be exact) is the real world, where he devotes himself to find a cure for Arcueid's Vampiric Impulse, be it random Conceptual Weapons/items and/or random fruits that spawn in random Phantasmal Species forests.

 

This if we accept "as canon" the "Prelude" and "talk." side-stories which Nasu hasn't incorporated yet to the Tsukihime franchise.

 

But yeah, the grassy field is the real thing. The scenes where he actually goes to the Millenium Castle and releases Arc (does she even need to be released...?) are the non-canon part.

...Just reread it again. Still one of my all-time favorites.

Nah, man, it's just... beautiful.

i really really loved this..

i really liked this

I love Arcueid so much

Hmm, that epilogue reminds me of End of Evangelion...

i just cried my eyes out. man the ending was beautiful.

Spoiler

No. You saw that portion where he wrapped the bandages around his eyes? That's his new version of the glasses. His old glasses have become ineffective and he needs that. I believe this was a connect to the short story called "Talk", the one where he has bandages instead of glasses and is referred to as Satsujinki.

Soooooooo much better ending than in anime :D
I am satisfied now, after years when i watched anime, now i can fully tell, that this is masterpiece :)

That was goddamned beautiful.

I'm getting the game now. There is no other choice.

I'm going to err on the side of a "happy ending" even if the VN and other sources ended differently. The manga is obviously being vague in order for the reader to make their own judgement. 

 

Usually, in manga, black pages mean that what is happening is either in a different time or part of a dream. When Acrueida "wakes" it shifts to white, indicating that it is the real world. Of course, the author could be cleverly baiting and switching by reversing the format.

 

However, it's clear that the empty field where he meets the magician lady again is not the real world, regardless if he really ever sees Acrueida again. It's a different place where he doesn't need his glasses and is probably outside of time.

 

Of course, It could all be a metaphor for how outside of the normal universe, they are together forever as joined souls. Either way, Shiki has come to terms with happiness. So, it's as "happy" as anything can be in this prototypical Nasu-verse storyline.

Spoiler

i get chills every time i see that "what it means to see death" speech at the end.... completely understand the guys conclusion that he's a fricken monster :|

What a sad ending, would want to see a happy one, hope sequel give me one. But I dont understand the epilogue ?! Was the part where Shiki saves Arcueid just a "what if" scenerio or something that wil happen in the future ... ?

 

to my understanding, the epilogue contains two "stories" shiki meeting that woman, and freeing arcueid, meeting the woman happens beforehand, and during this, Ciel discovers arcueids castle, jump cut to shiki freeing arcueid. 

 

and as far as i know, this is how it was meant to end, if it had a "happy" end.

Beautiful!
This was all I could untter after having finished this manga. Trying to look for some mangas with comedy and romance go together but hooked up to this manga. Thank god it was one of my best try ever. This manga is simply too good to be true. I lovw how adorable Arcueid is and how strong-minded and manly Shiki showed us.

Just played this for the third time yesterday and finished to reread this manga for the second time and it's still as good as the first time. ♫

:'D

Uh... Shiki just goes around killing Dead Apostles, ALONE... Arcueid is still in the castle...
It's fine. In the hypothetical Tsukihime 2, Shiki as a guard (with eyes bound by cloth) and Arcueid go to various places together.
I AM OVERFLOWING WITH SADNESS !
@ Hagani, I'm sorry but where is this a happy ending? [/spoiler] The epilogue does go into what happens next but it's not happy in the slightest. Arcueida always liked the "what if" situations and the events that play with them together are that same part. Shiki never liked them and so it follows him meeting with his sensei* again. They don't get together again. All of the moments with them together again are in Arcueida's head while she is sleeping.
