The addition of “shin” in the title has many meanings, which is clever wordplay on the writer’s part. In Japanese it can mean things like “new,” “true,” and “god.” In English it refers to the part of the body that connects the ankle bone to the knee bone, just like in the hit song Dem Bones (“shin,” in English, is pronounced “leg,” the s is silent).
