Manga & Anime Differences

  • The presentation of the Special Training is put in chronological order instead of a flashback
  • Adds comment from Dai that Avan is harsh despite his nice look
  • Adds a training sparing sequence against a coconut tree and squats while holding a big rock for Popp and Dai
  • The blackboard course is about the Avan Style Sword Technique instead of Ice-spells
  • When Avan says that spells are about "concentration" (in English in the original text) Dai does not understand him and then he switches to Japanese. The manga has the Japanese "集中力" with the English pronunciation indicated above.
  • Avan now knocks Dai out when showing off the Avan Strash using a piece of wood
  • Brass does not accompany Dai in the cave training
  • Dai wears a shirt both time he is sleeping while he was topless the first night in the manga
  • Avan now states he will turn into a dragon completely and now loses control with his eyes losing pupils. Popp now states that he survived a training against a dragon Avan before.
