SAN JOSE, CA – June, 2008 – DrMaster Publications announces the impending release of Lunar Legend Tsukihime volume 6. With much anticipation, the sixth installment of the popular horror action series by Sasakishonen and TYPE-MOON will be released in February 2009. Lunar Legend Tsukihime is based on the video game by TYPE-MOON’s well-known video game Tsukihime, which has also spawned an anime series.
In volume six, the violent bloody action continues when Shiki loses control of his senses and reveals his true “monster” nature within him as he goes on a mad killing spree. Subsequently, Shiki begins to recall fragments of his childhood memories, which reveal some important secrets of the Tohno family. Just when Shiki collapses from his killing spree, Roa appears with the intention of killing him, while Akiha tries desperately to defend him. Ciel later joins the fight against Roa, and more secrets of Ciel’s painful past are revealed. Don’t miss out on all the blood, gore and supernatural action in the sixth volume of Lunar Legend Tsukihime!
Type-Moon is a doujin game publisher that has released several games with fanatic followers. Their works include: Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night, and Kara no Kyokai [Borderline of Emptiness]. Tsukihime is actually a novel type game with over 5000 pages of text, which makes it difficult for people who don’t understand Japanese to enjoy it. However unlike other doujin games that resort to please the carnal pleasure of the players, Tsukihime has a solid story, unique characters, great graphics and music that was as good or even better than games created by the big game companies, which eventually led to the anime adaptation of the game.
Sasakishonen has worked on quite a number of comic anthologies including Mabu Love, Air, Kanon, Comic Party, Leaf, and Tsukihime. Lunar Legend Tsukihime will be his first full-length comic book.
Lunar Legend Tsukihime vol. 6 will be available February 2009, and will be priced at $9.95. Lunar Legend Tsukihime volumes 1-5 are available now.
