  • The Rising Sun storyline has the longest manga run from all Captain Tsubasa arcs to date.
  • During the interview with ORICON NewS in September 2021, Yoichi Takahashi said that Rising Sun might be the final manga story arc, since there is a possibility that he will not be able to continue drawing, given his age. This is not an official announcement, however.
    • Also in said interview, it is suggested that the story will still continue on via the game Captain Tsubasa: Tatakae Dream Team, with Next Dream being the story arc that takes place after Rising Sun. Again, this is not an official announcement.
