    She is still fed Sakura's prana, just not to the same extent when Shinji has the Book of the False Attendant. Hence why she sucks ass even more than normal and Shinji has her eat people.

    Again, it is not vital to her as a life-form. Also you're quoting the wiki again. Rider is not a "bloodsucker" even if she sucks blood because it is not vital to her as a lifeform.

    Technically she's not. Akiha would have been fine without it if she hadn't been trying to support Shiki's life as well as her own.

    Also bloodsuckers don't have to be dependent on blood to be vampires. TA's do it for fun.

    Half-demons are bloodsuckers, and therefor vampires.

    so yes, Akiha is a vampire.
    IIRC wasn't it that 'kyuuketsuki' refers to vampires proper (DAs/TAs) while 'kyuuketsushu' (Blood-Sucking Kind/Species) refers to blood-drinkers in general, e.g. Zouken's worms, Akiha, etc

    Fairly certain that they only use Kyuuketsuki

    If by 'fun' you mean 'because of an intrinsic psychological addiction.'

    Proving that she doesn't actually need it. It only becomes necessary because she chose to maintain the circumstances that forced her to do it. She could have removed her dependency at any time.

    ORT's no. 5 on the 27 DAA list. I wonder if it has its own pipette for bloodsucking, like the Tripods?

    I don't know if this is the right thread but My tsukihime save data is all weird. I moved my ciel data out including the two txt files that sav file and the Nscrflog file. and moved in my arcuied route files. none of the data showed up in the resume game. So I moved the Ciel data back in. and now that save data isn't showing up only the new game save file I made (after pressing start new game before moving the ciel files out). Any one know how to make this work? thanx.

    - - - Updated - - -

    After moving the files out putting only the ciel save data in then starting the game it recreated the othere files but the data still didn't work after taking the new files and data out and putting the ones I just took out back in the game data that was working now isn't what is with this archaic game save system.

    - - - Updated - - -

    After pressing start a new game the ciel data shows up out of no where when I go to save.. .What is going on!!!???

    How does Kojiro figure out who Saber is in UBW?
    "…I understand, Assassin. I shall settle this match someday."
    "That is a good response. I will be waiting, king of knights."

    In the VN, I mean.

    Yes she is. According to Nasu, arc is the best example of a western vampire and akiha is the best example of an eastern vampire.

    While I'm not seriously versed in asian folkore and only know a moducum so I'm only assuming that this is what you're thinking of. Here you go.

    The VN itself pointed out in one of the Teach Us that Satsuki seemed more of a vampire than Arcueid.

    She saved Shiki's life when they were young, and has


    absolute faith in him even if she'd never admit it.


    She lived in the dorms at the Asagami Academy for


    Girls after Shiki left for the Arima household, but she


    started commuting from home when he returned to the


    Tohno mansion.


    As the Tohno family head she possesses noble blood,


    and her power as a demon hybrid is among the best of


    the best. If Arcueid is a Western vampire, then Akiha


    would be an example of an Eastern vampire.



    The embodiment of "plundering", all who enter her


    field of vision will have their heat (life force) stolen from


    them, no questions asked.



    technically it doesnt say best example, so I was wrong there, but it doesnt say anything about concepts either, thats just what they are. So yeah, they are vampires.
