Fans of the Type-Moon universe (Fate/Stay Night, Kara no Kyokai, Tsukihime) will be saddened to hear that the third installment of Battle Moon Wars has been delayed.

[Rumor/Speculation] – Kara no Kyokai anime?!

December 8, 2006

I visit The Beast’s Lair boards quite often, and a thread made by Evospace caught my attention as I was skimming through the forum. The latest Newtype issue (a popular anime magazine in Japan) contained a picture of Ryogi Shiki, the main heroine of the popular Type-Moon novel, Kara no Kyokai.

I wouldn’t mind adopting all of them.

So, if you’re an advid Type-Moon fan like myself, you’ve probably heard that the super awesome people over at Mirror Moon and Revolve Translations have recently released their Tsukihime english patch. And let me tell you, it is glorious. For those of us that aren’t Japanese literate, this is pretty much a godsent gift. Prior to the patch, I relied mostly on the written summaries made by Evospace over at Moonlit World / Beast’s Lair, so while (more…)
