Release information

This card was subject to controversy due to the fact that it featured an omote manji, which is a mirrored-image version of the swastika used by the Nazis, on the card. The manji, which has a connection with Buddhism, hearkens back to centuries before the Nazi regime began. The artwork was changed to remove the manji for the English and international releases, and was also corrected in later print runs of the Japanese release itself.
