Background and Trivia

  • Toho registered the film with the US copyright office on December 20th, 2001 under registration number PA0001089835. Interestingly, the movie was registered with only its Romaji title of "Konketsuji Rika: Hamagure Komoriuta".
  • Based on the Rica manga by Taro Bonten, first started in 1969.
  • When Media Blasters first announced the DVD release of the first Rica movie, it referenced the sequels as Rica: Lonely Wanderer (1972) and Rica: Juvenile's Lullaby. However, when the movies were released on DVD the first part of the title was changed to "Rica 2" and "Rica 3" respectively. It's assumed, although not confirmed, that the titles without the numbers are Toho's preferred English titles for the movies.
