First mention

Scene 79


Unofficial name. Unnamed by the characters in the manga. Name derived from 大陸[11] tairiku (mainland, continent).

The mainland is unknown due to the island inhabitants' belief that their island is the entire world.[12]

Miria and Cynthia refer to both the Island and the mainland as a "continent,"[13][14] which translates from 大陸[15] (tairiku). 大陸 can also be translated as "mainland." All other terms that the Ghosts use, such as "world" or "land," are also generic.

"Mainland" often used on forums and fan-sites.


Miria says "In this world, there is another land even greater than ours.[16] Geography of the mainland is unknown. Only battlefields[17][18] and a laboratory[19] are depicted.
