TriviaEdit

  • The Shiso Tree appears on the "Origin" card illustration.

Intertextuality and ReferencesEdit

  • Its in-game title may have been inspired by the culinary and ornamental plant called shiso; the herb's name is a word loaned from the Chinese zǐsū (紫苏/紫蘇) whose second character (蘇) means "to be resurrected, revived, rehabilitated", much like the concept of a video game's starting point.
