Miyako Arima
Tsukihime (2021)


Miyako Arima (有間 都古, Arima Miyako?) is a cousin of Shiki Tohno, as well as his other adoptive sister. She debuts in Melty Blood: Type Lumina.

Profile[]

Background[]

The eldest daughter of the Arima branch family, which took Shiki in as a child. Currently in the fifth grade, she sees herself as Shiki's other sister.[1]  

Appearance[]

Personality[]

Her feelings are easy to see as she always wears her heart on her sleeve. She unabashedly adores her kind, quiet older "brother", but whenever he is near, she becomes so nervous she can barely speak. This continued for many years until Shiki was suddenly called back in the Tohno family, and Miyako did not take the news well.[1]

Though she and Akiha are more of distant cousins in terms of familial relations with each other, Type Lumina has Neco-Arc refer to Akiha as "Miyako's stepsister" in her Boss Rush story, implying that Miyako sees Akiha as her "older sister" by virtue of Akiha being Shiki's actual younger sister. Of course, thanks to that, this also means that she sees Akiha as her biggest competitor when it comes to getting her "big brother's" affection.

Role[]

Melty Blood[]

Neco-Arc creates a what-if scenario for Miyako to go through where she is the main heroine of Tsukihime: the "Miyako Route".

Abilities[]

Miyako learned Bajiquan by observing others in her family's dojo, though it now sits unused. Although she was nowhere near the skill of a true martial artist, her abilities quickly flourish in the ensuing battle. Her destructive powers make it hard to believe she is only 11 years old.[1]

Development[]

Kinoko Nasu considered adding Miyako into the first day of the Tsukihime remake, but chose to show some restraint.[3]
