- Banned in China: The animated film adaptation, Midori, is banned in its native Japan, and the master reels were confiscated.
- Completely Different Title: In Japan, the manga is known as Shojo Tsubaki, roughly translated as "The Camellia Girl". When the manga was translated for US markets, it was changed to Mr Arashi's Amazing Freak Show.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: It's not hard to find online and a quick Google search will take you to the film, but it's impossible to find the 6 minutes of footage that was destroyed by the Japanese government in 1999 due to the film having imagery illegal at the time
- The first (and only) print of the English translation manga is a collectors item, selling between $50-$200. It's easy to read it online, however
