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...

Don't judge this manga

Based on the description. In fact if you haven't yet, don't read the description at all. It basically explains a plotline that's delivered slowly and artfully over like 6 whole volumes in 4 huge paragraphs.

And it gives you the wrong opinion about this manga. Or...if not the wrong opinion, at least the wrong idea of what the manga is like. The manga is about Shiki. Shiki is badass. He is so badass he's almost GAR at times.

End of story.

No need for huge explanations in the manga description.

If you played the visual novel,(I didn't watch the anime however) I highly recommend you read this manga.

~ The storyline is true to the Visual Novel in almost every way.

~ The action scenes are fluid, and very well depicted.

~ The romance gets some what heart wrenching near the end. (In a good way ;D)

And finally
Two words. Great Ending.

Awesome series, recommended to anyone who's wondering which one to pick.
I keep this one on the wish list for a while 'cause the series seem to be dropped, but I did not expect it to be this good.
By the way, i have yet to watch the anime so no comment about that.

I hope to one day have this series complete downloaded with translations from Japanese scans...cause the DrMaster scans are god awful (hell if they weren't I would just buy the books). The artwork is great as are the characters. Shiki is way way cooler in this than he is in the anime...he's just kinda a sissy in the anime.

I am an avid reader who loves words in all forms and this is an honest to god favorite of mine. Its passionate, and the mystery is a well thought out plot. It moves at good pace and has just enough action to not keep you bored, even during the investigation faze! The romance is subtle at first, and then it never becomes overwhelming and suffocating because its not being pushed with force onto you. The ending could have been more revealing and specific, but it was perfect because it was slightly bittersweet and nostalgic, which goes absolutely well with the whole story. You would be a fool to not give this story at least 4 chapters, yes 4, before declaring defeat!

The main guy's ability is really intriguing, and I've never seen something like that before. His struggles with his power are sad to see, but it leads to his chance encounter with a fleeting romance that is rare in the shounen genre... There were moments of suspense as well that kept me on the balls of my feet, and the twists were interesting without being too confusing.

However, this manga did not have an overall impact on me. The ending was AMAZING, beautiful, and tragic, but the other parts of the manga did not stand out quite as much.

Overall though, I would recommend this to anyone--this is something worth checking out, even if you don't finish it.

I hear this is based on the Arc route of the game. A good adaptation that showcases the interesting characters well. This is how every adaptation should be. It should be able to stand on its own.

This manga is wonderful. It's very closely follows the Arcueid arc of the original Visual Novel and it gets better graphic the more you read through the chapters (seems that author trained himself on this work ^_^ ).
Apart from technical standpoint. Shingetsutan Tsukihime is a very tense action-filled melodramatic manga about not really love, but more of devotion and really close relationships between two people who care about each other. Here is, of course, all things you can see in seinen: deaths, big losses and big wins, sex, heroism, viciousness and most important of them all, you see some serious perseverance in reaching one's goals. Which is really valuable to read for everyone, IMO.

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.
