Story

Ah… just how beautiful the moon is tonight…

Gravely injured at a young age, Shiki Tohno was practically banished to a distant relative’s home, where he lived a peaceful life until one day, news arrives of his father Makihisa’s death.

Shiki returns home to find his sister Akiha, who has inherited their father’s position, living with two maids.

There, he begins a new chapter as the eldest son of the illustrious Tohno family, finding that a life of luxury doesn’t sit right with him.

As the days pass, familiar sights of the past awaken fragmented memories. Then, one day, he passes by a monster in the shape of a human…

Thus begins the celebrated story of Tsukihime, first created in 1999 as an indie visual novel. See the masterpiece reframed and retold after twenty long years!

Ciel’s Route

After a chance encounter on the morning train with Ciel, a popular upperclassman at school, Shiki finds himself quickly becoming close to Ciel.

His school days are warm and lively thanks to colorful characters such as his best friend Arihiko and the new teacher Noel… However, the idyllic times were not to last.

A sudden string of killings rocks the city. Shiki finds himself in a pit of despair due to a tragedy of his own making.

Amidst it all, someone’s heartfelt words offer him a lifeline in the darkness.

They come from none other than Ciel.

Arc’s Route

High schooler Shiki Tohno has been living with distant relatives since a major accident seven years ago.

He is recalled to his distinguished family home upon news of his father’s death, and begins a new life in an enormous mansion.

Despite the creature comforts, he can’t help but feel an air of disquiet in the house.

One day, while in a haze, Shiki crosses paths with an enigmatic woman who introduces herself as Arcueid, and becomes involved in a battle against inhuman vampires beyond human comprehension.
