Tsukihime redesigns from TM Ace Vol 8

So, what do you think?

I think the most radical change everyone is concerned about is Arc’s. Here’s my opinion on the matter:

I, for one, like it. It’s certainly hard to just accept such a colossal change all of sudden specially when is something that’s been going on for a decade. Needless to say remove a characters iconic visual traits is plain worrisome. But it’s not really bad in my opinion. The boots are actually quite nice and not horrible as the fanart made me fear. The big breasts and sweater are there so that’s something really iconic still there, the mini skirt is feels weird, but neither is ugly. It’s gonna take some time to get use to it.

I’ll forever prefer the old design though.

Oh, and here’s some Mana
