(4 out of 5 stars)
"The 3rd and final DVD brings things to a close...albeit a bittersweet one. Many of the mysteries are unraveled as Shiki's memory returns. Also, more background is revealed on some of the characters.
This series did a good job on it's own as an anime. However, it pales in comparison to the Doujin game it was based on. The anime series itself leaves a lot of loose ends. The redeeming factor is that many of these loose ends can be researched on Tsukihime/Type Moon fan sites.
The character design was excellent and the music was outstanding. It set a perfect atmosphere. The story told in Shingetsutan Tsukihime actually follows one of the many paths that the Tsukihime game has. This story more or less follows Arcueid's "True Ending". It only scratches the surface of the many things that happen when compared to the game. There are loose ends that I am sure many fans will be wondering about.
I highly recommend seeing this anime if you are a fan of mysteries with a deep story and a touch of romance. This is NOT an action movie. I also recommend tempering this anime with information gathered from Tsukihime fan sites (Beast Lair forum comes to mind). It will give even more background information on the supporting characters. My appreciation for Tsukihime increased as I learned more about Arcueid, Shiki, Akiha, Kohaku, Hisui, Ciel, Satsuki and the rest of the Tsukihime characters.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the series was too short. It really should have been the usual 26 episodes. More character development could have occurred (and of course more Arcueid footage...heh) as well as expand the story on some of the more mysterious supporting characters like Hisui and Kohaku.
I have become a Type Moon fan because of this anime."
