  • Changed at which moment Hadlar decides to attack Valge Island
  • Matoriv to a circus where the Fake Heroes are with his Zoom spell instead of Nayle village, not meeting Leira
  • Flazzard complains about the lack of action
  • Shows Popp thrown in the lake
  • Matoriv explains to Popp that he can't go to Valge Island
  • Added the lead up to the spell battle between Matoriv and Popp, asking him to Zoom to the circus from before
  • Removed the scene of Matoriv's criticising Baduck's bombs
  • Added a scene on the beach with Dai swearing to avenge Leona

  • The three soldiers who fought for food and were defeated by Flazzard are replaced

Trivia

  • Masopho and Matoriv don't seem to recognise each other in the filler seen. The manga would later reveal a strong bond between them.
