Manga & Anime Differences

This episode covers Chapter 37: Little Princesses in High Spirit of volume 5 while the extra story, Biscuit Dance, covers a bonus at the end of volume 5.

  • In the manga, Hime and Momoka are the only girls to have revert back to toddlers. Compared to the manga, the anime has two more girls, Daisy and Momori.
  • The beginning of the manga starts off differently. Hime and Momoka speak about Momoka's success and they do a toast. This is where they revert to children. Compared to the anime, Hime talks about how they have not seen Momoka for a while since Momoka is busy. Momoka pops by the window and asks them to help her.
  • Sasuke did appear in the manga when he is confuse by Hime and Momoka. Whereas in the anime, he walks Daisy and Momori with Bossun who walks with Momoka and Hime.
  • Only in the anime, Bossun pulls Hime to safety before the car hits Hime.
  • In the manga, Switch did not appear when Bossun calms down Hime and Momoka. In the anime, Switch appears with Otakura after Bossun stops the trunk driver. Switch calms down Momoka while Bossun calms down Hime.
  • The ending of the anime is different from the manga. In the manga, Hime and Momoka age up to 27 after drinking the antidote. They head off outside to explore the world. Compared to the anime, the four girls age up to 27 and head off outside to explore the world. In addition, Bossun is seen watching TV of idols singing and dancing, and Rumi and Akane are relieved that Bossun likes girls his age.
  • In summary, Momori, Daisy, Akane, and Rumi did not appear in the manga, so their anime roles in this episode does not occur in the manga as well.
  • Other Chapters: In the chapter, Kaimei Rock Festival, Bossun's phone rings with little Momoka's voice that puzzles Ayano. Compared to the anime, the anime places Kaimei Rock Festival before this story, so the scene does not occur.
