Tsukihime Vol. 3 (manga)

So long posts take me forever to do, right now I’m working on a bit of a review/first impression type thing for a manga I recently got called Ooka: The Inner Chambers.  Unfortunately I hate writing at length so it’s going to take a while but in the mean time I would like to do little snipets of other manga I’m reading right now (oh near past anyway) starting with the manga for Tsukihime.

So anyway, I recently got a hold of volumes 1-6 of Lunar Legend Tsukihime illustrated by Sasakishonen and original story by TYPE-MOON and I’m enjoying this version more so then the anime, which was decent but not outsading.  While reading trough volume 3 there is a list of names containing the family names of Asagami, Fujou, and Ryougi.  For those who don’t know TYPE-MOON founders Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi’s original project was a little novel titled Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners  which became the archetype for Tsukihime.  The novel (and later movies from studio ufotable) follows a young women named Shiki Ryougi, who shares her first name and the “Mystic Eyes of Death Perception”, and her friend since high school Mikiya Kokuto, who’s character design is the basis of Shiki Tohno of Tsukihime.  They encounter two others with unnatural power, Fujino Asagami with the abilty to bend things and later gains clairvoyance (i.e. she can bend things with out seeing it), and Kirie Fujou, a bedridden girl who controls a specter like version of her self and implants the suggestion of suicide in other girls.  Seeing these little trough backs to Kara no Kyoukai in Tsukihime made my day.

Well that’s pretty much all that I have to say at the time (wow, I need to work on short part of posting).
