Differences with the anime Edit

There are some significant differences between the anime and manga:

  • During the battle at Festival Gate, Keita reveals his reason to join JP's before he was killed by Botis.
  • Yamato's past was never shown, though chapter 16 cover shows him when he was a child playing chess with Alcor.
  • The scene where Io supposed to have conversation with Otome and including the scene where Joe and Daichi attempted to peek girl's physical exam was replaced with Hibiki, Daichi, Joe, Jungo, and Ronaldo talking during physical exam.
  • The summoning of Shiva and Kama and Alioth's defeat was skipped and only narrated by Yamato and Fumi.
  • Other than the time when Daichi saved him from bullies, Hibiki's past was never shown. This flashback is also shown after Daichi summoned Black Frost.
  • During the battle against Io who was possessed by Lugh, Hibiki never goes to follow Io and instead directly confronted her when she arrived at the Diet Building.
  • In the climax, Lucifer didn't hug Satan when he defeated it.
  • In the epilogue, Hinako and Keita met again.
  • In the epilogue, instead of inviting through mail, Makoto invites Fumi directly to hang out together during weekend.
  • In the epilogue, Hibiki didn't insist when he asked to enter the Diet Building and immediately gave up to enter after seeing limousine without Yamato inside, but then comes face to face with Yamato outside the building and both reconciles.
