shingetsutan-tsukihime copyI have been reading this manga the last few days during my study breaks to de-stress from the usual exam madness . Tsukihime is about the story and life of a teenage boy named Shiki Tohno who since a life-threatening accident in his youth is cursed with the ability to see “lines” on everything around him. Lines along which objects can easily be cut.

Having lived with foster parents for seven years, Shiki is recalled to the household of his family. He had lost all contact with his family over this entire period, making it difficult for him to get used to the new situation. As he gradually learns more about his past, the situation becomes more and more unfamiliar and dangerous.  Soon after discovering this power, he is given a special pair of glasses by a mysterious woman. While wearing these glasses, Shiki cannot see the lines, and can thus live life as normal.

Later, Shiki discovers that he can also see “points” on objects and people; these act as more immediate and powerful versions of the “lines.” Eventually, it is revealed that Shiki is not merely killing a person or destroying an object when he cuts its lines or pokes out its points, but is instead removing the meaning of his victim’s existence.He later goes on to the meet the babe Vampire princess  Arcueid Brunestud. You can find the HQ scans on the usual IRC Channels. As this manga is licensed in the United States by DrMaster I cant post links.

  1. beautiful picture you have there of this manga anime. When it was available on Youtube I had watched the whole serie and it was quite enjoyable. That also brings to the reason I am posting here. A BIG GIGANTIC round of applause and thanks to you guys for doing such wonderful jobs of subbing animes. As light novels, mangas and manhwas are taking the West I have people like you to thank for making those available.
    U can even say that it saved my life 🙂 …sort of.
