Dutch or English short form of "Theodore" or "Theobald."

テオの町 translates as "town of Teo." [8]

FUNimation anime pronounces name as both THee-o and Tee-o[9] VIZ Media uses "Teo."[10]

May allude to Theo van Gogh, brother of the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh.


A village in an unknown region. The village that Orsay names as "Teo" in manga Scene 5 is never shown in the manga. The anime renames the village that Teresa appears in as "Teo." See Teo II.



Teresa kills Yoma at unnamed town. Afterward, she meets Orsay on the town outskirts. He gives her a new assignment at Teo.[11]

Manga vs. animeEdit


But instead of showing up at Teo, Teresa appears at the marketplace of a neighboring village. There, she kills six Yoma and then a seventh, inadvertently rescuing a young girl, who she will later name Clare.

Teresa says that the Yoma were hiding here while feeding on humans in neighboring towns. But that the Yoma Suppression was commissioned by another town (Teo). [12]


The anime is similar to the manga, except Teresa makes no mention of another village making a request for Yoma Suppression. When a villager offers payment, Teresa says that a Man in Black will come collect it. The village depicted is "Teo."[13]
