Manga to anime changes[edit]

  • In the manga version, Reika announces to her father and the guests about her intention to get married to one of the suitors at the party. This scene is removed in the anime.
  • Reika wears a white coat over her dress when she is about to leave the house with her father after the party had ended in the anime.
  • Some of Reika's expressions and mannerisms were changed to be less malevolent, leaning more toward being childish, compared to the manga.
  • In the anime, after Yone put a blanket on Ran who is sleeping on a sofa, she looks at Ran's face and is reminded of her granddaughter Yaeko.
