Have this in the meantime.


The history of Maid Culture in Japan

So this pair of books regarding Maids come out this year. The first volume comes out on October 26 and the second on November 2, both feature a cover illustration by Takeuchi Takashi.


I couldn’t care less about this if it wasn’t because KohaHisu are in the cover for the second volume, and because it is always nice to see new Tsukihime art.

You can get bromides if you buy them from this site.


Even a rat can bite a cat

Titles is 鼠が猫に噛みついた, comes from the idiom 窮鼠猫を噛む. Let’s see what the dictinonary says:

窮鼠猫を噛む きゅうそねこをかむ (exp,id) a cornered rat will bite a cat; despair turns cowards courageous
窮鼠 きゅうそ (n) cornered rat or mouse

Going literal with the title would make it sound too awkward, so I picked another one that flows a tad better, even if not 100% accurate. With this, all the Tsukihime chapters not featured in Carnival Phantasm are done.

Other chapters that I translated are Blade and Don’t think, Imasine.
