Those "little stories", were they not small parts of alternative routes?The manga ? Not all of it. The anime just made up a bunch of things.
The thing is.......i was to believe that Melty Blood was more like an alternate universe sequel to TsukihimeTsukihime runs on alternate timelines anyway, they're all canon and not "what if"s. The very first time, Arcueid's Good End was what the project started with, then her True End came along quickly and was assumed as the "most canon" route, yet the other routes are still just as canon.
(Kinda like a "What if this happened at the end of tsukihime" type thing)
and the actual sequel to Tsukihime was called "Kagetsu Tohya" (sorry if i misspelled)
Tsukihime => Kagetsu Tohya
Melty Blood => Melty Blood Re Act => Melty Blood Act Cadenza
Kagetsu follows up a particular route of Tsukihime, although it's not explicitely stated which.
Melty Blood follows another route - which is Satsuki's Normal End, and that's official. And yes, there has been no Satsuki route published, but Type-Moon does have it (they could never add it in time for Tsukihime itself, and the Plus Disc extra only explain bits of it) and they mentionned they hoped they could release it in some form someday. Some say/pray it could be the "truest" route, the "most" canon one, although we'd have to wait for Tsukihime 2 to know if Talk, the Dark Six prologue, and the Prelude that was in the Character Material, are made "real".
ReAct replaces MB, AC follows ReAct.
About the topic, I'm expecting a lot from the seven Kara no Kyoukai movies. One month left for the first.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
