Adaptational Differences

The manga version contains some notable differences:

  • The scene with Keiichi discovering that Mion and Shion are separate people happens during festival preparations instead of at a store.
  • The scene with the group searching for Rika is changed. Instead of searching around the school, they go to her and Satoko's house. Thus, the resulting ladder scene with Mion strongly echoes the original Watanagashi arc.
