Behind the Scenes[]

  • "シーレ" is a Japanese transliteration for "Schiele," not "Shire" as in most translations[1]. "Schiele" in German is pronounced "she-lah."
  • The Anime pronounces the name as "she-en."
  • "Schiele" may allude to Austrian Expressionist painter, Egon Schiele (1890–1918).
  • Clare and Raki leave the town of "Egon" and travel to "Schiele" or "Shire."
