Differences from the Manga
Both versions are practically identical to the point that a lot of the anime shots are modeled directly on the manga panels. However:
- This story originally ran in December-January, so there’s no watermelon, the characters are in their winter uniforms, and the story begins with Ataru and Ten fighting already with no reason given.
- The onslaughts of water in the classrooms aren’t nearly so extreme.
- After the second onslaught of water over the whole school, as Onsen-Mark and Hanawa wonder what happened, Ten's Mother waters Onsen-Mark to turn out his cigarette.
