Release information

This card was subject to much controversy due to the fact it featured an omote manji, which is a mirror-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.
