Storyline

November 1998: A young man swears he committed a heinous crime, he looks in the news, but nobody talks about what happened, even when the police find the alleged victims ... alive and unharmed. He says that he has done it and wants the aid of Shiki. Behind this seemingly senseless event, there is a large apartment building in which is woven a very convoluted plot in which Touko's past is involved. Will Shiki and Mikiya discover the truth? Can all of them escape from the spiral? Written by Nolberto Roa

Trivia

Jôji Nakata is often considered the archetypal voice of the Type-Moon villain by Type-Moon fans and properly so. He has played the role of NRVNQSR Chaos in all renditions of Tsukihime, with the exception of the anime; he was Kirei Kotomine in Fate/stay night (2006), and the only member of the original Kara no Kyoukai drama CD cast to reprise his role as Souren Araya for the movie. Kinoko Nasu even quotes people from Ufotable as saying: "Jôji is best for Araya. Araya is best for Jôji." See more »

Goofs

After Tomoe tells Shiki that she was being persecuted and admits to her the love he feels, the kitchen sink appears to be full to the brim with empty ice cream jars, then the sink appears empty and then reappears filled again between shots. See more »
