The OVA has the distinction of being the very first anime to be fansubbed, way back in 1989 by the people that later formed AnimEigo. They later outright licensed the OVA in 1992, and released it to VHS, Laserdisc, and (eventually) DVD, with an English dub produced in 1996. TokyoPop first licensed and released the TV series to VHS and DVD beginning in 2001, and it was rescued and reissued by [[Section23Films Maiden Japan]] in 2012. The manga received an incomplete release in the US by Studio [=IronCat=], who disbanded before releasing the whole series.

But [[DespairEventHorizon poor Aiko]] [[SurvivorsGuilt gets so broken]] [[ItsAllMyFault by the ordeal]] that she makes a DealWithTheDevil with a vampire-like Shinma, kickstarting the plot of said OAV...]]
