"Shire" from Anime Scene 2, "The Black Card"

Town near Mount Shire. Town and mountain may be in Lautrec. Both town and mountain are named in Anime only (Anime Scene 2).


Clare attempts to drop off Raki at an inn (town and inn scenes only in Anime), before her rendezvous with her best friend, Elena, who sent Clare a Black Card.[1]

Behind the Scenes[]

  • "シーレ" is a Japanese transliteration for "Schiele," not "Shire" as in most translations.[2] Pronounced in Japanese as "she-et." "Schiele" in German is pronounced as "she-la."
  • "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."
