Locations[edit | edit source]

Tohno Residence[edit | edit source]

The home of Shiki Tohno and Akiha Tohno. Shiki's bedroom is a luxurious grand room, although you can't see the background graphic in the game there's a fireplace and a desk in the room as well, among other things.[2]

Tohno Mansion Basement Kingdom (遠野家地下王国?) is one of the Tohno family's secrets. With features like an underground room for disposing of those who have awakened to their Tohno blood, a dungeon that can confine people for a lifetime, and a research lab run by a mere servant, it really is a suspicious place. But most conspicuous of all is the enormous cavern beneath the mansion, the Tohno Mansion Basement Kingdom! It's unclear who made it, and for what purpose, but it appears to be a miniature world that functions as a pseudo-absolute monarchy. Though it looks like a nuclear bomb shelter designed by a crazy rich person, judging from the equipment within its actually the base of a secret society scheming world domination.[3]

Kohaku made and planted her own Mekong Delta in the Tohno mansion's back yard. The botanical gardens is known as Psycho Garden.[4]


Kuonji Residence[edit | edit source]

In the Mahou Tsukai no Yoru world, the Kuonji mansion shares the same location as the Tohno mansion.[5]

Kunoji residence (久遠寺邸?) is a mansion located at the top of the hill of white Inuzuka, Misaki Town. It can only be seen from a place high above from a certain level. Upon Alice Kuonji father's death, Alice inherited the mansion and it became a keepsake of her parents. The mansion is an old European-style building which was taken from the United Kingdom in certain circumstances. It is rumoured with "two witches are living" and "Haunted House". It is a large house with three floors, there is an annex built for a library of magic that even Alice could not grasp all of the contents. Aoko and Alice claims it to be their Magic Den (魔窟?).

Alice claims the forest behind the backyard is her special place and thus the condition of the forest is also deeply involved when presented with a ritual magic.

Initially she lived with Aoko Aozaki and later with Shizuki Soujuurou.

Imperial Metropolis[edit | edit source]

Imperial Metropolis (大帝都, Dai Teito?) is the grilled beef restaurant that appeared in Tsukihime and Mahou Tsukai no Yoru.[5] Technically it is located next to the town. There is a special menu, an all-you-can-eat to challenge the limits of human beings. As a paradise of meat that competes not on quality but price, it's a popular hangout for students who want to get a lot of bang for their buck. They have an all-you-can-eat special available that tests the limits of human endurance, and the rankings are updated monthly. However, it seems that the monsters occupying the first and second place spots are unlikely to be displaced any time in the foreseeable future.[6]

Reines Girl Academy Kara no Kyoukai.png

Reien Girl's Academy (礼園女学院, Reien Jogakuin?) is a private prestigious girls school, located in the suburbs of Misaki. Its value is much higher than Misaki high school, the school is sponsored by Fujino Asagami's father.[8] It is a strict school that is sealed off from the outside and it is rare to see the students in public. While the school is in session, the girls need to stay at the dorms and can't go out unless they receive a special permission. Similarly people from the outside are not allowed in. However Alice is a special case, she is allowed to commute from home and Fujino is allowed to enter the city twice a month due to periodic medical appointments. It supposedly wants to educate girls with manners, but students who transfers from a regular school do not like it at all. It has a size of a university, and the garden of thick trees almost feels like a forest. Their school uniform looks like a cassock. It's said to have been a sister-school of a renowned school in England, but recently other girls' academies had emerged using Reien as the template.[8] Since this school is cut off from the outside world, you can say it's a natural bounded field. A magus might do an experiment in here and society wouldn't know.

In the events of Kara no Kyoukai sixth chapter, the principal "Mother Riesbyfe Stridberg" requested Touko to investigate the suicide of one of the student death.

This is the darkest alleys of Misaki Town. It is this place where the dangers of this city are hiding to kill their victims when they step in these places, with the most walk by this place are Shiki Nanaya and Nrvnqsr Chaos, the latter which ends sometimes hiding these dark alleys after being materialized by TATARI.

Satsuki Yumizuka and Sion were forced to live in back alleys. They formed Back alley alliance where Satsuki and Sion are the only official members, though sometimes White Len stops by as well. In Tsukihime, back alleys were a terrifying place full of corpses, where girls that should have been dead chased you down and cornered you, and classmates hid their blood-drenched arms. However, it seems that ever since the BAA was founded, safety in the alleys has improved remarkably.[11]

At the end of Melty Blood Actress Again, in storylines where Riesbyfe survives after the destruction of Dust of Osiris, she ends up becoming an official member of the Back Alley Alliance and is it is always appended with Sion and Satsuki.

    Shiki's room [Place name]
    It goes without saying, this is the protagonist Shiki's room.
    Since Shiki is Akiha's older brother, you'd expect this to be a mighty fine room, but… do my eyes deceive me? It's even more barren than Kohaku's! What's going on!? If somebody unfamiliar with Shiki's personality (and the way he doesn't really keep a lot of stuff) saw it, they'd be convinced it was a case of the sister-in-law (Akiha) bullying the bride (Shiki). Of course, since Shiki himself seems perfectly pleased with it, there's no problem. Also, though you can't tell from the background graphic in the game, there's a fireplace and a desk in the room as well, among other things.

    Its existence was confirmed during the events of Melty Blood, but later no matter how much Shiki scoured the mansion the path to the underground kingdom was nowhere to be found. How… eerie…

    The stage is very unique, and a lot of work went into drawing the background as well.

    Nasu: That's correct. We don't want players to feel the setting is unpolished no matter how far back it's set. The goal is to have the player should feel "I want to live in this city," to paint a memorable and beautiful street scene. Actually the setting is Tsukihime's Misaki Town, Tsukihime fans should be able to recognize locations such as the grilled beef restaurant Dai Teito. The Kuonji household has the same location as Tohno household from Tsukihime.

    It is about an hour away from the Tohno mansion by car. Normally students are forced to live on campus, but Akiha has received special permission to commute to school from her own home. She actually did live in the school dorms when Shiki was living with the Arima, but it seems she forced the matter after he moved back into the Tohno mansion. Unfortunately, the oafish big brother didn't notice his noble little sister's efforts at all.
