Miyako Arima
Tsukihime (2000)

Miyako Arima (有間 都古, Arima Miyako?) is a cousin of Shiki Tohno, as well as his other step sister. She received a slight mention in both Tsukihime and Kagetsu Tohya, then made her first real appearance in the Melty Blood fighting game series.



The Arimas are relatives to the Tohno family, but have very weak demon blood compared to them. When Shiki was adopted into the Arima family, Miyako became close to him, despite being several years younger than Shiki.[2][3]


Keeping with her "China Girl" theme, Miyako seems to wear a traditional Chinese outfit. Her clothing in Melty Blood also resemble traditional Chinese dress.

However, one of her victory poses in Melty Blood shows that she wears a T-shirt and shorts inside.

Her T-shirt prints says 大トロ (Ootoro?, quality tuna; fat under-belly of tuna).[1][4]


Although she tries to look strong, Miyako is actually quite shy, especially around Shiki. One of the routes in Melty Blood story mode shows that Miyako has a hard time saying anything to Shiki. Because of her frowning reticence, Shiki mistakenly assumes that Miyako is always angry at him for some reason.

She respects her mentor Master Panda.[1]


Melty Blood[]

Miyako's ending

    Miyako Arima [Person's name]
    The Charging China Girl.
    A young girl that uses pretend baji quan, and (secretly) idolizes Shiki as her big brother. Currently a sixth-grader in elementary school.
    Shiki came to live in her house at around the same time she started to become aware of her surroundings, and it seems that for her it was something close to love at first sight. Ever since then, she has been spinning around in circles trying to figure out how to get closer to him.
    Because she's the kind of person that gets incredibly flustered when she's with the person she likes, she was always at a loss for words around Shiki, and expressed her frustrations by tackling him. Before he knew it, head-butts to his solar plexus had become just another part of Shiki's daily life. Though, after Shiki returned to the Tohno mansion it seems she was able to start talking a bit more.
    In Melty Blood, she appears as a hidden character. Burning with a passion to bring back her big brother, she confronted the entire Tohno household on her own. It was one of Melty Blood's comedy routes, the showdown to determine the strongest little sister…!!
    Though normally she doesn't have any actual battle ability, due to the Night of Wallachia's influence her pretend baji quan ended up turning into the real thing. It was the debut of Miyako's Amazing Baji Quan.
    Her combination of a Chinese jacket with jean shorts made for a cute and wholesome outfit, but there were also rumors swirling around about "no pants" and "missing tights". Maybe there's even a rare win pose where she takes off her jacket?

    Miyako Arima [Person's name]
    The Charging China Girl.
    A young girl that (secretly) idolizes Shiki as her big brother. Currently a sixth-grader in elementary school.
    After his traffic accident, Tohno Shiki was adopted into the Arima household, and it seems that for Miyako it was love at first sight. However, she had no idea how to deal with suddenly having an older brother out of nowhere, and ended up repeating the same cycle of awkward communication over and over. In the years leading up to his return to the Tohno mansion, she didn't manage to have a proper conversation with him even once.
    "This house has a dojo, but nobody ever uses it. What a waste!" Thinking that, Miyako started practicing (self-taught) kempo every day. Though it's merely pretend baji quan at the level of a child's play, in Melty Blood it became the real thing for a single night due to the Tatari's influence. Of course, this delighted her to no end.
    Also, she is recognized by Neco Arc as a much-awaited future rival.

    有間の家には使われていない道場があり、このままでは勿体ない、と日々拳法の鍛錬をしている。子供の遊びの域を出ないなんちゃって八極拳だが、MELTY BLOODではタタリの影響で一夜だけ本物の八極挙使いになってしまった。無論、本人は大喜び。
