Anime and Manga Differences

  • In the manga, when Haruitsuki was telling Yahiko to leave, Hanae remembers Sakae's visit when he was young. In the anime, this does not happen.
  • The flashback scene showing Yahiko saying he actually hates cultural festivals is also anime-only.
  • The part in the manga where Ashiya offers Yahiko cream puffs and begs him to transform into Sakae was skipped.
  • The anime only adapted the first four pages of Chapter 51.
  • The anime only adapted pages 6-15 of Chapter 52.
