Differences from the original

Although the director stated that this new animated version would be more faithful to the manga, numerous differences can be seen. One of then is that the pace of the story is faster, removing small details from some episodes in order to compact it. Another difference is due to the broadcast time of the show, any sexual content scenes were removed, altered or toned down, the same happening with scenes that would contain red blood (humans and Crocodine). Since all womans (with exception of Soara and Nabara) from the series have some scene with adult content and a lot of battles containg blood are present in the serie, it could be said that many will continue to be altered.
