What Arc is best Arc?
Melty Blood version, either the manga or the game itself.
>that model is probably sucking some dude's dick right now for meth
>doesn't know that she inspired a character that millions of asian men have ejaculated to
The one that doesn't look so Saberfied.
Obviously the new Arc that Type Moon is working on. The redesign improves her in every possible way
Why does it need to be set in modern times in the first place?
Doesn't that screw continuity a bit? Tsukihime is supposed to take place in the month prior to FSN (Tsuki in January, Fate in February), and I'm pretty sure the latter franchise still happens in 2004.
You know, I now realize what bugs me most about the new arc costume...
The short skirt and long sleeves/turtle neck.
I've seen it pulled off, but here, it feels like Arc forgot the rest of her skirt when she went out that morning or something.
Now, in Takeuchi's defense, the dude probably just wants to showcase how much his artstyle has "evolved" or at least changed since the original release of Tsukihimei or even show off his development since Fate. That's natural for an artist.
Unfortunately, this will come at the expense of designs people have come to know and love.
I can practically hear Takeuchi's thought process when changing the designs:
>Arc's a princess, and her old hair looked too 90's anime, she needs something smoother, something that looks like she brushes her hair in the morning. And the skirt. Short skirts and sweaters are pretty trendy, and while Arc doesn't understand modern fashion, she keeps up with modern trends to blend in.
>Shiki's hair needs to be a bit wilder, but not spiky! It needs to be almost curling, like flames! Something that captures his agility and dynamic movement! Also, let's spruce up those glasses and switch blade of his. The glasses were originally for a female magus, right? They shouldn't look like Harry Potter-book-specs!
And so on.
It's not that I don't understand Takeuchi... but, I agree with folks here that the changes do feel a little unneeded.
Tohsaka? Kaledo Ruby? Last I checked I don't remember many Homurahara students having tails.
Just like how there's no way Phantasmoon can be Arc.
Arc is a slut for Tohno dick, Phantasmoon is a pure protector of the earth.
How will the redesign affect her princess form ?
Like in the bottom right picture.
Arc is like 4th ranked in the TM poll in which the most people participated and she had more favorite votes than even Rin. Only reason Saber is more popular is because she has been in countless anime series, and spinoff along with her source game having an higher budget.
Are you implying Tsukihime was a breakout work? Because it wasn't. It was only popular with ronery neckbeards while Fate is a wide-popular franchise. The only hope Tsukihime has now of being relevance is trying to tie in with FGO >>137526840 which is a hit according to Sony.
Fate was popular because it caught fire easier after we were 5 more years into the information era. Tsukihime was popular as fuck, just not internationally because you weebs weren't throwing money into imported VNs and Naruto headbands in the early 2000s.
Gay. Arc's route is cool with the manga ending adding that he's goes on an adventure to save her. Ciel even cucks herself and helps him rescue her love rival.
Tsukihime doesn't have a wide appeal of Fate. It's literally the neckbeard's version of Twilight. Only vastly less popular.
Not even speaking of western world, I mean in Japan. Do you see a Tsukihime ferrari or Visa card?
