History

Originally founded by artist Takashi Takeuchi and writer Kinoko Nasu as a doujin group, Type-Moon has become famous for its plot-heavy dark fantasy adult visual novels, most popularly Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night-- both of which have been adapted into popular mainstream TV anime. Their first well-known published work was a novel series called Kara no Kyoukai, which was originally serialized on their personal site called Bamboo Broom back in October of 1998, alongside some of their other works such as DDD and Notes (aka Angel Notes). With the release of their first doujinsoft game entitled Tsukihime at the Winter Comiket of 2000, the group quickly rose to fame, and in 2001 they released a sequel to Tsukihime entitled Kagetsu Tohya.

In 2002, Type Moon teamed together with another doujin group called French Bread to make Melty Blood, a fighting game that is set some time after the events in Tsukihime.

In 2003, Type Moon would release it's last product as a doujin group, entitled Tsuki Bako, which was a compilation of Tsukihime, Kagetsu Tohya, and a bonus disc called Tsukihime Plus Disc. That April, Nasu and Takeuchi officially disbanded the doujin group known as Type-Moon, and after establishing Notes Co., Ltd. (aka Notes, Y.K.), they remade Type-Moon as a brand name under the Notes, Y.K. corporate entity. Also in the same year, Tsukihime recieved an anime adaptation by J.C. Staff and Geneon.

On January 30th, 2004, the corporate Type-Moon published their first commercial product, the adult visual novel Fate/Stay Night, which quickly gained immense popularity. In May of the same year, an improved version of their earlier Melty Blood title was released entitled Melty Blood Re-ACT, and the Tsukihime manga began serialization in Dengeki Daioh. In late 2005, a fan disc of Fate/Stay Night was released called Fate/Hollow Ataraxia.
In January 2006, Fate/Stay Night recieved an anime adaptation by Studio Deen, and in August, Melty Blood recieved an arcade and PS2 port called Melty Blood Act Cadenza.

Since then Type-Moon has continued to assist and work on new projects, such as the Fate/Stay Night inspired fighting game Fate/Unlimited Codes by Capcom. Other new titles in the works include the visual novels Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, Girl's Work, a remake of the original Tsukihime game, and an anime called CANAAN which is based off a game called 428 (which Type Moon assisted in it's production of as well). Most of these titles are set to come out sometime in 2009. Also of prominence are the Kara no Kyoukai anime film adaptations that are being produced by ufotable, with 6 of the 7 films having been shown in theaters as of December 2008.

Trivia: The name "Type Moon" comes from one of the group's early works, Angel Notes, referring to the Brunestud of the Crimson Moon who was the "Type" of the moon (In Angel Notes, the term "Type" was used to describe the ultimate being of a planet), and thus the name Type Moon.
