Shiki Toono sustained a life threatening injury as a child, and due to that incident he was sent away from the Toono household and was given to a relative to be raised. Years later, when Shiki is in high school, the head of the Toono household—his father—dies, and he is ordered to move back in by his sister Akiha, who is the new head of the household. However, Shiki holds a huge secret. Ever since that injury, he has been seeing lines on objects, and only with a special pair of glasses is he able to stop seeing them. Also he is unable to remember anything well from the time before his accident. The day he moves back to the Toono household is the day he stumbles upon a woman named Arcueid Brunstud and decapitates her with one stab of his knife in a temporary fit of insanity. When she suddenly showed up beside him later alive and well, and ask him to be her bodyguard, Shiki's journey to unravel the mysteries of his past begins. (Source: ANN)

Isn’t it sad that Carnival Phantasm is the ONLY Tsukihime anime?


Not as bad as people say it is. Decent sense of tone and fascinating setup, but a lot of unexplored territory. An average adaptation.


12 episodes aren’t enough to tell this story properly… which shows. Its quite enjoyable despite this


I don’t know why there’s a blank page in my library.


In a vacuum the music is quite good. Said music fits the tone fantastically well. But they adapted a bad route and couldn’t explore much.


(Joke about this not existing)


As someone who’s never played the original, I actually liked this more than I thought I would.
