Differences from the manga

Though the plot is true to the manga, many of the scenes of this episode are anime original.

  • The manga version starts with Kitsune picking up dandelions then learning the story from the old lady. He imagines Shinobu as a bride right after and it jumps to the costume contest.
  • As Kitsune walks away after seeing Shinobu with Ryūnosuke, the Tomobiki High School Principal shows up as a judge wearing a wedding dress. Then it ends with Kitsune asking the old lady how to claim back a lost lover.
