Legion Irminshines

From Assault Lily Wiki

Legion Irminshines (LGイルミンシャイネス) is the top legion of Irma Girls' High School for the Arts.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The legion name, Irminshines, is pronounced "irmin-shyness." It's based on the world tree Irminsul (the emblem of Irma) and crown shyness, the design motif used in the bracelets for the Crownshine Oath[2].
    • This appears to be a complex play on words that involves the multiple meanings of the Japanese character , the meaning of the Old Saxon prefix "irmin", and the similar pronunciations of the English words "shines" and "shyness."
