* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Disney's sale of Miramax was in the way of any possible re-release in the US for several years, although Creator/AllianceAtlantis in Canada was still able to print its release. Miramax's rights lapsed at some point and Disney re-issued the film (officially re-printing the original DVD release from Buena Vista Home Entertainment re-badged in Disney's Ghibli package design and with almost every mention of Miramax removed) in 2012, with a Blu-ray release in 2014.

* LastOfItsKind: This was Studio Ghibli's last cel-animated feature (the last feature to use cels in the world was ''WesternAnimation/DougsFirstMovie''), switching over to digital ink and paint shortly after once it became clear that painted cels were no longer cost-effective.

* BoxOfficeBomb: Budget, 2.1 billion Japanese Yen/$23.5 million. Box office, $2,298,191 (Eight weeks in the United States), $11 million (worldwide), 14,518,798,588.39 Japanese Yen/$148,000,000 (Japan), 14,487,325,138 Japanese Yen/$159,375,308. It was a great success in Japan and is a critically acclaimed film, but Miramax/Disney chose to screen it only in arthouse theaters such as the Landmark Theatres chain (which may have actually helped its reputation).



** Gillian Anderson was famous for playing the TropeNamer and TropeCodifier of AgentScully. So who does she voice in the English dub? A wolf spirit.

* LastOfItsKind: This is Studio Ghibli's final film to be drawn & colored on plastic cels, and is often thought to be the last cel-animated film in the world chronologically. After ''Mononoke'', Studio Ghibli switched to digital animation because cel animation had become too financially impractical.

* CrossDressingVoices: Moro is voiced by a man, in this case Akihito Miwa, in the Japanese version. This comes from Japanese mythology which says that wolves are always male-voiced (and cats always female-voiced), regardless of sex.
