Trivia[]

  • Neoteny in humans is the slowness or delay of body development, resulting in features such as a large head, a flat face, and relatively short arms. In essence, it is the retention of juvenile features well into adulthood. Thus, the title can be understood as scattered fragments of stories showing Shin's mental development from a boy into an adult, contrasting his still young physical body.
  • Misericorde (derived from the Latin misericordia, "act of mercy") was a long, narrow knife, used to deliver the mercy stroke to a seriously wounded knight. [3]
