Anime and Manga Differences
- In the anime, there is a subtle motif where two small birds fly together. These two birds represent Bossun and Sasuke. They are seen again when Akane picks up Sasuke and Bossun's photo at the end.
- The anime has an added ending where Bossun and Sasuke are seen in front of the school. Their friends suspect that they have done something together.
- In the manga, Akane is not seen in the tape when Sasuke watches the home videos. Only Haru and Ryosuke are seen.
- The anime added Ryosuke and Bossun together in a snapshot when Akane compares the two brothers to their parents. The manga doesn't do that comparison shot.
