The ending theme song "Ai ha Hana, Kimi ha Sono Tane" is a translated version of "The Rose," written and composed by Amanda McBroom and performed by Bette Midler for the 1979 movie of the same title.
Wasn't released in the USA publicly until 13 after it was originally released in Japan. While a domestic home video release wasn't made until 11 years later.
Wasn't dub in English until 25 years after it was released in Japan.
The film was previously owned by the Walt Disney Company as part of its deal with Studio Ghibli to distribute a majority of their films for domestic U.S. home video release. The Disney executives later decided that they could not release the film on DVD or any format. Their stated reason was because the film contained references to menstruation and they can't alter or avoid the mentioning of the subject. As listed in a clause in Ghibli's distribution contract it prohibited Disney from altering the scene or removing the references. This issue was finally dropped when GKids obtain distribution rights to the film.
