* ViewersAreMorons: Handy instant exposition by Kaisuke for those viewers who weren't really paying attention; while sitting outside the interrogation room with the gang: --> '''Kaisuke:''' So, the army's working with the police... To hunt down anti-government groups, or so it seems. ''(beat)'' Yeah, that's it. ''(nobody responds)''

No bolding for work titles. See format rules on How To Create A Works Page, 4th paragraph "No bolding is used for work titles" and FAQ: "What emphasis do I use for the title?: Whatever you do, it does not belong in boldface-font."

Being over 2000 pages in six hefty volumes, the story the original manga tells is much longer than the film. It is more violent and focuses more on politics. Critical plot developments in the film are often {{Late Arrival Spoiler}}s in the manga. The series is notable for being the very first comic book series to utilize entirely computer coloring, when it was first released in the US by {{Marvel}}'s Epic Comics in the late 80s/early 90s. Later English editions from Dark Horse and Kodansha Comics USA restore the original black-and-white artwork, but the pages remain flipped from left-to-right.
