This manga version has some notable differences:

  • Instead of Chie, the club goes to Satoko's house when they learn Teppei returned. Satoko is shown to have bruises.
  • Keiichi succeeds in giving Satoko a headpat before she bats him away. In the anime, Satoko does it before he touches her.
  • Keiichi's recollection of Tatarigoroshi memories includes Satoko calling him a murderer.
  • When Rika meets Takano, she remembers being killed by her in Minagoroshi.
  • Kasai makes an appearance.
  • A scene is added of Rika talking to Satoko on the phone and telling her to be strong, mirroring Minagoroshi.
  • The Nekodamashi scene with Ooishi's rampage at the festival is depicted here, and differently at that. Rika gets shot during her performance, and Keiichi is present. He attempts to stop Ooishi before getting hit in the head by his bat.
