- Some English criticism has stated that the original Japanese publication year was 1984, but that is actually the date of the first Japanese paperback edition
- Also known in English as "The Bomb"
- The English title might be considered funny in Japan, as the letter H by itself is slang for sex
- The original Japanese title is in fact written in roman letters
