TriviaEdit

  • The school's name is a homophone of the Japanese word for prisoner, shūjin (囚人). However, the school's name is written with completely different characters, making it merely an oral pun. This was confirmed as a deliberate choice by Katsura Hashino in 2015.[1]
  • The school seems to be designed like a prison. For example, it is surrounded by a fence, the gate in front of the school seems to be the only way in and out, and the minimalist clock in front of the could symbolize how the students are forced to "serve time" like a prisoner does.
  • The school's uniforms are also vaguely reminiscent of being a prisoner; the suspenders could be interpreted as being prison bars. The plaid designs on the pants and skirts also could represent restriction.
  • In keeping with a running theme among the Persona series' school logos, the logo resembles the logo of a car manufacturer: in this case, the emblem resembles the logo for Citroën.
