Trivia

In Japanese, the name Shiki is used in both males and females. Although the word is pronounced the same, it is written differently in the Japanese language. For adaptation into English and other languages, distinction is made arguing SHIKI (in capital letters) for the male personality and Shiki to the female personality. See more »

Quotes

Shiki Ryogi: Kokutou, you... In the night of February 3, you...
Mikiya Kokutou: [Interrupting her] Don't talk about it, nothing happened.
Shiki Ryogi: [Angrily] What do you mean nothing happened, Kokutou? Tell me, Why did not you tell nothing to the police?
Mikiya Kokutou: Because I didn't see it. Coincidentally you were there, that was all I saw. So I decided to believe in you.
[Evasive]
Mikiya Kokutou: Is painful indeed, so I'm giving my best. I think I can hear your reasons when I'm more sure of myself. Let's don't talk about it right now.
