Synopsis

Shiki Toono sustained a life threatening injury as a child, and due to that incident he was sent away from the Toono household and was given to a relative to be raised. Years later, when Shiki is in high school, the head of the Toono household—his father—dies, and he is ordered to move back in by his sister Akiha, who is the new head of the household. However, Shiki holds a huge secret. Ever since that injury, he has been seeing lines on objects, and only with a special pair of glasses is he able to stop seeing them. Also he is unable to remember anything well from the time before his accident. The day he moves back to the Toono household is the day he stumbles upon a woman named Arcueid Brunstud and decapitates her with one stab of his knife in a temporary fit of insanity. When she suddenly showed up beside him later alive and well, and ask him to be her bodyguard, Shiki's journey to unravel the mysteries of his past begins.

The first thing id like to say is if you are put off from reading this manga because of the anime of the same name don't be, the difference between the anime and the manga's attempt to recreate the visual novel are worlds apart. Now on to the actual review.

For anyone who does not know the story for Tsukihime there is one phrase that i use that i believe describes it effectively. That is that Tsukihime has "the biggest characters you can imagine in the smallest story possible". The reason i use this phrase is because the story simply involves a young high school read more

Tsukihime was originally a visual novel for the PC released by Type-Moon in 2000. It was later adapted into an anime series that was not well-received by fans (to the point that fans deny the existence of the anime) and a manga series that is still being published. I played the Tsukihime game not too long ago, and I loved it. It had one of the greatest and most touching storylines I've ever seen in a video game, but it also had many disturbing scenes as well. I was able to buy the first five volumes of the manga (volume 6 is rare and expensive read more

One of simply the best mangas , i have ever read period!

I haven't seen the Anime ( which i have heard isn't too great ) but the mnaga is a true masterpiece.

There is not one department , that it doesn't deserve top marks.
The art is amazing , the characters and story sublime , a gripping and intellect plot that's just polish its all round brilliance.

I actually don't like horror stories read more

Although i appreciate the lengthy detailed reviews of others, i'll keep mine a bit shorter and without actual examples in the hopes of drawing in any passerby's to an amazing manga while avoiding any and all spoilers. Let me just say this manga really is amazing, the characters are excellently developed and the story actually comes together in not so easily predictable ways. If i may say so, it appeals to me with one of the most touching stories i'v ever experienced as well as some very disturbing moments, all compiling a fantastic story that is well paced and perfectly balanced. The art isn't perfect, read more
