If you are looking for a moody anime with vampires, look no further!
27 June 2006 | by Wabbajack-2See all my reviews

This is a delightful show about Shiki Tohno who's a high school student with a gift to see "lines". When the lines are severed, anything that had the lines will be destroyed. He comes to terms with meeting a real vampire that he supposedly meant and killed. Now Shiki Tohno is forced to team up and help kill other vampires.

The series has a wonderful soundtrack that really fits the mood.(Composed by: Toshiyuki Omori)

The English cast features Michelle Ruff as: Arcueid Brunestud

There are 12 Episodes for the entire series:

1. Inverse Impulse

2. Black Beast

3. Demon Eyes of Direct Death

4. Cradling Garden

5. Bow of the Sky

6. White Dream

7. Blue Ruins

8. Origami

9. Death

10. Crimson Red Moon

11. Night of Disaster

Shingetsutan Tsukihime is great show to watch and recommend to anime fans out there, especially for Arcueid Brunestud!
