Overview Image Gallery



Shion was a village on the continent of Anima. It is first seen in the episode '"Remembrance". It was destroyed in a raid by the Branwen Tribe.

Description

It was neighbored by another village, though they have not been in regular contact since the fall of Beacon Tower and the collapse of the Cross Continental Transmit System.

The town included at least one hiking trail and was a camping destination spot, particularly for Jaune Arc's family.

History

Team RNJR planned to stop over in Shion village on their way to Haven Academy, hoping to make use of an Airship the village had operational.

Upon arriving there in '"Remembrance" however, RNJR found the village to be destroyed along with the airship. They encountered a mortally wounded Huntsman. He lived long enough to inform them that the village was overrun by a tribe of bandits; the resulting panic caused Grimm to arrive, killing the entire village. After the Huntsman died, Lie Ren and Nora Valkyrie noticed one of the footprints left behind by the Grimm and realized that it belonged to the Nuckelavee that destroyed Kuroyuri in the past.

It is revealed in "Family" that the attack on Shion was led by Raven Branwen.

Trivia

The symbol of Shion village

  • "Shion" is the Romanized spelling of the Japanese word for the Aster tataricus flower. In Japanese floriography, the meaning behind this flower is "I won't forget you" or "Remembrance".
  • In "Kuroyuri", a flag of Shion village was found at a cave by Lie Ren. On the flag was the Aster tataricus flower, the symbol of the village.
  • The timetable at the Mistral train station showed trains going to Shion at roughly hourly intervals despite the destruction of the village.
    • There was also no hint of a train station in Shion when team RNJR passed through on their way to Mistral, and no mention of it even though they went there in search of transportation (in the form of the airship they found destroyed).
