Manga to anime changes

  • This episode combines two unrelated stories from the manga: "Adults Don't Understand" (Vol. 2, Ch. 4) and "Ghost Game" (Vol. 2, Ch. 6). This results in the following differences:
    • In the manga, the culprit behind the school "haunting" was the science teacher Dr. Asou, who was trying to create a cure for his hair loss. In the anime, it is Akako, who conducts magic experiments with the science classroom's chemicals.
    • In the manga, Dr. Asou disguises himself with an ogre mask and carries around a knife when intimidating students. In the anime, Akako merely walks around in her hooded robes and performs magic.
  • The manga version of this story ends with Inspector Nakamori still under the influence of Akako's cursed necklace. The anime establishes that Aoko broke the necklace shortly after the Inspector returned home.
