Differences from the Manga

The plot is the same and all the scenes in the manga are in the anime, with a lot of the chase and planning scenes being new (particularly anything involving Megane), although in the manga:

  • Ten, Cherry and Sakura do not appear.
  • There are only 5 joints the students mostly go to, as the Beef Bowl one is an anime-exclusive.
  • Ataru flirts with the lady at the last joint causing Lum to make him eat something spicy, which makes him come out.
  • It’s the school’s oldest teacher who gets trampled at the end rather than the principal.
