Trivia: Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team
- Author Existence Failure: Director Takeyuki Kanda died during production, delaying the series by nearly three years, making it the Gundam OVA with the longest release schedule at the time (now second-longest behind Gundam Unicorn).
- Fan Nickname: The aforementioned Soap Opera Disease combined with his Ambiguously Gay design has earned him the moniker "Space AIDS" in a few places.
- Hey, It's That Voice!:
- Playing Against Type: Compared to most of the Ace Pilots on Nobuyuki Hiyama's roster at that time, while still Hotblooded, Shiro is practically just a guy-next-door than a Super Soldier.
