Manga & Anime Differences
- In the anime, after Go realizes Elie is a girl, when he "cuts the scene" he brings in makeup people to "fix" Elie's face with make up, and they end up making her look like a clown. In the manga, this does not happen.
- In the dubbed version when Rosa and Elie were fighting (While Haru, Plue and the men were dancing) a few seconds were cut out of the episode where Rosa knee buts Elie in the stomach, however you can still see the impact and Elie crouching down holding her stomach in!
- At this point, the anime is up to Manga Volume 4.
