Manga & Anime Differences

  • Leona is not asked to heal Crocodine's eye
  • Baran does not see Matoriv and Avan in a traveling when thinking about Dai's source of power
  • Baran orders Dai to become Dino
  • Crocodine explains what Baran is doing to Dai while he is casting it instead of after the fact
  • Maam and Hyunckel sense Dai's danger from the Insignia of Avan
  • Brass sense danger from breaking a vase
  • In the manga, Baran wipes Dai's memory, and retreats warning the party that he'll be back. In the anime, Baran cuts Dai and him from the party, Dai resists the memory wipe with the help of his friends and they overcome Baran, then he retreated saying he would come back some day.
  • Killvearn and Hadlar have a different dialogue when seeing Baran's retreat

Trivia

  • The First 15 pages of chapter 88 is adapted into this episode, which is the first half. The second half of the episode is anime original, including some lines from chapter 89 and Hadlar with Killvearn, butwas overviewed by the original writer.[1]
  • The scene with an object breaking at Brass's home when Dai is in danger seems to have been adapted back into chapter 196 of the manga, but with a dish instead of a vase
  • Baran's technique of cutting Dai and he from the world might be the inspiration for the Duel of True Dragons in chapter 250 of the manga

Errors

  • The ending's harmony cel has Dai's armlets coloured black with pink lining --the way his metal protector was-- instead of his knight armour ones.
