The ruby-eyed Pinky version of the famous Tsukihime character is the latest media Pinky to come with a book in the box. She appeared in December 2004 after a web campaign by Ohzora Publishing Co.
According to the Wiki history, the visual novel game Tsukihime from 2000 was followed by an animated series and a manga. The plot of the Shingetsutan Tsukihime (Lunar Legend Tsukihime) anime from 2003 includes the vampire moon princess Arcueid Brunestud, or simply“Arc.”
Very knowledgeable but naive. Sometimes selfish, sometimes obedient. Mysterious but needy, Arc is an is an unpolished gem, to quote some fans of the anime. Those words could just as well be used about the Pinky Arc who certainly stands out among the cute Moés.
Perhaps not the most popular Pinky character, Arc needs your loving care more than most. And you need her! Arc is still the only Pinky that comes with bare feet and a pyjama jacket to that. A must buy for any serious Pinky fan.

It is possible that the Pinky Tsukihime did not become quite the success that it’s creators had hoped. Reportedly, she is still easy to find on the shelves many places (HLJ). One likely result of this is that the planned follow-up called Project R (for Repaint) has been shelved, at least for now. Although the repaint shown is rather drab in grays mostly, it has it’s followers. The blister no longer have the bare feet, but a school uniform with a yellow sweater. Long gone is also the Heartful Net web site.
