Tsukihime ~Half Moon Edition~ Omakes (TYPE-MOON)

NSFW/spoiler warning: This is a review of an 18+ eroge. It contains screenshots of NSFW H scenes (put into spoilers). It also contains game/content spoilers.

Included in the Tsukihime ~Half Moon Edition~ CD were a bunch of extra omake material that was later also included in Tsukihime PLUS+DISC (except Clowick Canaan-vail). Each of these are reviewed here separately.

Clowick Canaan-vail

MyAnimeList entry

Clowich Canaan-Vail” is a short manga drawn by Takeuchi, originally included in the doujinshi Angel Voice” published by Takeuchi and Nasu at Comitia 48 Strife212 has a quick review of Angel Voice here). Based on what I saw (can’t read Japanese, orz), it is about a robot post-woman who helps deliver an important letter to a couple.

In the version included here, the manga is shown as a “digital takenohon”, i.e. the manga’s panels are shown (with some sliding animation) while the dialog is digitally overlayed (instead of being inside the speech bubbles). Essentially, it was like a short visual novel.

Run “rplay.exe” under AppLocale (I can’t tell the difference between rplay.exe and rplayh.exe). The main menu looks like a menu, but I can’t figure out how to navigate it. Pressing ‘Z’ will start the comic, with repeated presses skipping pages. Pressing ‘V’ will show you some debug draw call numbers. Pressing Enter exits the program.

Tsukihime (Preview Edition)

TYPE-MOON official page
Tsuki-kan entry

Tsukihime (Preview Edition) was distributed during Comiket 56 (summer of 1999) in the form of free 3.5″ floppy disks. Only 300 copies were made, making it one of the rarest Tsukihime collectors items and the earliest of TYPE-MOON’s PC games.

The game contains a mix of text info, partial plot and CG. There’s 6 menu options. They all run in NScripter visual novel style (but without supporting ‘Z’).

The first choice seems to give text-only background info about TYPE-MOON.
The second is more blocks of text, possibly the game’s synopsis.
The third is character introductions, with uncoloured sketches – check out how much all the character designs have changed, from Preview (below) to Remake (especially Ciel!)
The fourth is the game’s first H-scene, with Arcueid Brunestud as the first female heroine. I was kinda surprised they didn’t rape the maids first, given Takeuchi’s love for maids.
The fifth features Kohaku and Hisui in ugly green and blue maid outfits (thank goodness they changed it!) talking about the development of the game, with some fun drawings of Arcueid, Akiha, and what I assume is Ciel.
The sixth menu item quits the game.

Run “omake\99年冬コミ体験版\tsukihime\月姫.exe” under AppLocale.
The game will start in full-screen mode. Use the second menu button’s second option to switch to windowed mode. Use mouse to click the menu items and use the Enter key to advance the dialogs.

Tsukihime (Preview Edition) web version
Website: http://tsukihime.virtualave.net/ (dead)

This is a series of info web pages for Tsukihime, in coordination with Tsukihime (Preview Edition). The web page includes general game info, a game synopsis, and then character info (including original character designs, face expression sketches, one example scene with CG, and one H-scene with CG. The characters shown were:
– Arueid: アルクエイド = ブリュンスタッド (Arkaid = Brynsted)
– Akiha: 遠野 秋葉
– Ciel: シエル (Ciel)
– Hisui and Kohaku: 翡翠と琥珀

Fun facts:
Apparently the original Tsukihime home page was http://tsukihime.virtualave.net/ – this website apparently only lived through three iterations before becoming a redirect. Incidentally, Bamboo Broom’s website also went through a number of changes while Tsukihime was being developed before all offloading it to typemoon.com. Also of note is the inconsistent misromanization of “月姫” to “Tukihime” instead of “Tsukihime”. My favourite TYPE-MOON doujinshi circle, Crazy Clover Club, also seems to have this same issue (see the cover for “Tukihime Complex Complete”).

Tsukihime (Trial Edition)

TYPE-MOON official page
Tsuki-kan entry
VNDB entry

Tsukihime (Trial Edition) was sold during Comiket 57 (winter of 1999) in the form of 3.5″ floppy disks. Only 50 copies were made, making it one of the rarest Tsukihime collectors items and the first “playable” version of Tsukihime.

The “game” is pretty much a straightforward 3 minute long trailer introducing the characters and some CG with text (all using the NScripter engine). The game auto-starts and auto-closes on finish.

Arcueid, Ciel, Akiha, Hisui, and Kohaku are introduced in that order, with some CG in between (including one with Aoko and shota Shiki, and one 18+ one in spoilers below). Nero also gets a CG, but no introduction. The preview ends with a promise of the Half Moon Edition releasing in Summer 2000 (which it did, at Comiket 58) and the Full Moon Edition releasing Winter 2000 (which it did, at Comiket 59).

Run “omake\デモ版\月姫デモ.exe” under AppLocale.
The game will start in full-screen mode. Use the second menu button’s second option to switch to windowed mode.

Valkyria NEAV SAGA

Links:
Tsuki-kan entry
MyAnimeList entry
The Fifth Heaven of Hlodj fan page

This is the embedded images web version of the first “Valkyria NEAV SAGA Episode00” manga. The manga was first released during Comitia 48, then rereleased as a compilation with “Valkyria NEAV SAGA II (released during Comitia 50) during Comiket 57. It is the first half of the third part of the Valkyria series of mangas released by Takeuchi early on before he and Nasu formed the TYPE-MOON circle.

The web pages are just a series of embedded scans of each 11 pages, with an additional afterword by Takeuchi where he talks about how short it is, talks about adding a next part in the next Comitia (ends up being 2 later), and thanks those who bought the paper copy of the issue.

Not knowing much about the Valkyria storyline (and again, not knowing Japanese), I couldn’t really figure out much of what was going on other than seeing people kill each other, in early-Takeuchi art style.
