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 »

Goofs

Mikiya stands guard outside the house of Shiki several nights. He appears to bear drizzle, snow, wind, as if he had been watching her during all year long, but in history, he only makes surveillance for a month. See more »
