Manga and Anime DifferencesEdit

  • Mosquito during the final battle at Baba Yaga's castle is killed by Noah (Greed) in the manga, but in the anime he survives the battle (and is mourning Arachne's demise).
    • Noah is never introduced in the anime.
  • Giriko later on joins Noah's gang (along with Justin Law) and is killed while trying to kill Maka in the Salvage Arc in Chapter 77, but like Mosquito he too survives the anime storyline.
  • In this episode, the Little Ogre assumes a larger form, his closeness to madness as well as his slow process of wearing down Soul's defenses allowing him to increase in size both in those episodes and in Chapter 84. In this episode and in Episode 50, the Ogre appears larger and actually confines Soul so he may take over his body. But the chapter, the Ogre's larger size is actually a robotic copy of itself that it conjures out of Soul's madness, and by the end of this chapter, the Ogre seems less interested in possessing Soul's body than getting Soul to define himself more confidently and to embrace madness. As well, in the anime, the Ogre's larger size also owed to Soul's physical nearness to Asura and his madness, whereas in this chapter it is Crona's more adept use to release the potential of the Black Blood, and Soul's physical nearness to the Black Blood Globes, that strengthens the Ogre's abilities.
