Trivia: Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth

  • God Created Canon Foreigner: Sort of. Hanabi appears in Chapter 34, but she had never appeared post-timeskip in the original series prior, creating a problem of sorts. This was solved by Kishimoto himself creating a post-timeskip design for her, Lampshade Hanging included.
  • No Export for You: Barely avoided. Despite being a spinoff of a manga that for a time was the #1 manga in the USA, it took nearly 2 years after the anime's original run for a dub of the original series to be announced and aired stateside.
  • The Other Darrin: The dub is non-union (in contrast to the main series dub), so several characters had a voice actor change.
  • Recursive Adaptation: Mild example. A special chapter for Saikyo Jump was based off of Episode 5A from the anime. Which means that it was a manga chapter based on an episode of an anime adapted from a manga...
