Sidenote: Manta's family and butler appears in this volume. In the anime, they do not appear.

  • Manta's mother - Keiko Oyamada (37)
  • Manta's father - Mansumi Oyamada (55)
  • Manta's younger sister - Mannoko Oyamada (5)
  • Manta's butler - Tamurazaki


Yoh's evolved oversoul is Amidamaru talking to him. The description is one samurai armor on Yoh's right arm with Amidamaru's head holding the sword (overlapping Yoh's arm)

Manga and Anime Differences

  • In the anime, Manta's family and butler does not appear. Instead Silva appears and tells Manta what happen.
  • Unlike the manga, Ponchi and Conchi are weak and childish as Ryu smacks them silly. Still Ponchi and Conchi cut Ryu's pompadour and hit his "bells."
  • In the anime, Ponchi and Conchi's predictions come true due to (anime exclusive?) Elie and Millie who are short and tall.
