This is a series I’ve been meaning to get to for years. When the news of the remake came out I knew that it would be something I wanted to check out. A series that so many fans adore, yet seems to have vanished into the annals of time. A part of the Nasuverse that has spawned a billion dollar franchise, yet has next to no name recognition. Now that it has come out though, does it stand up to expectations? Or should it have been kept where it was. Well after the cut, let’s take a dive into the first route of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon and find out.
I’ve talked about this series before, and I’ll probably do it again. There are probably only a handful of anime that you watch in your life that become regular re-watches, that are in your view, absolutely rock solid in what they are. We all have them, or will get them in time. The show we are discussing today is one of mine. After the cut let’s take a re-dive into Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade WorksRead More »
Also it’s boy Shiki, not “boy” Shiki, it also isn’t the other Shiki either. It’s just Shiki? Got it?
Surprising many people, myself included, the big reveal for Fate special presentation was the confirmation that Tsukihime, one of the original VNs of the Nasu-verse is getting a full on high definition remake in 2021! Fans are of course very thrilled, and I can’t blame them. While I have not read Tsukihime, it is considered a widely beloved visual novel, and laid the ground work (as well as carrying over concepts from The Garden of Sinners) for what eventually becomes Fate/Stay Night, and well, the rest is history.
There is no word yet of a possible English release, though I do hold out hope. Fans are also excited for the prospect of an anime series to follow, considering the trailer was animated by Studio Ufotable. No one knows what will happen, but you can be sure that if we get this overseas, I’ll waste no time trying to pick it up. Tsukihime is always something I really wanted to look into, and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later!
I’ve had my fun over the last few weeks doing comedic reviews on this series using nothing but video clips. Now that I’ve had that fun however, I think it is time I do a proper post giving you my thoughts on this series. Join me after the cut as I take a dive into the 8 film series: The Garden of Sinners.
The Garden of Sinners is a visual novel that was the first work done by the creator of Fate Stay Night, and can be seen as a prototype not only for that story, but for the other works he has created. Like with Fate, the entire visual novel was adapted into a series of 8 films by studio Ufotable. Being a massive fan of Fate Stay Night and of the company itself, I’ve been meaning to check this out. I now give you my thoughts on the first three films of The Garden of Sinners, using only video clips from Jontron, which I believe best way to sum up these movies, the characters and plot. My additional thoughts will be at the end this post.
