  • Resolution


    Manga to anime changes

    • In the anime, Kaito finishes his private magic show by giving Inspector Nakamori a "lucky rabbit" doll, which the Inspector brings along on-duty. This is not present in the manga.
    • In the manga, the blimp that Kid's dummy rides away on has "ABAYO" (roughly: catch you later) scrawled on the side. In the anime, it is blank.
    • The scene where Princess Anne uses Kid's light-tubes to create a silhouette of her cat is unique to the anime.
    • The anime deepens the interaction between Kid and the princess, emphasizing how the former and the latter have become co-performers in the "show" to outwit Delon.
    • The anime shows Kid testing the Beaucoup de Soleil à Paris against the moonlight. This is not present in the manga, since the original story was written long before the introduction of Pandora.
    • In the manga, Kid secretly slips the Beaucoup de Soleil à Paris into Inspector Nakamori's hand when returning it. In the anime, he slips it into the lucky rabbit doll (which had fallen out of the Inspector's pocket during the scuffle).
    • In the anime, Kaito performs one last face-saving magic trick during the epilogue. This is not present in the manga.
