your going to think im exaggerating but..im not.
The anime COMPLETELY TOOK OUT about at LEAST 85% of the manga. But they didnt stop there, the little they kept the same they COMPLETELY CHANGED. So really its like a whole different damn show. They take out whole MAIN characters, took out entire IMPORTANT stories (see below this paragraph), and change the few things they keep and how all the stuff happens. I mean shit, even the ending is done differently (but atleast it kind of got the same point across..in a more stupid shitty way that wasnt like the manga at all =/
move over to see spoilers, weee.... under this sentence anyway.

They COMPLETELY took out literally almost everything about Ooshige. In the manga she is a VERY MAIN CHARACTER, actually....HALF OF EACH VOLUME is devoted to her in the manga (not like in a row, but about 50% of each volume is about her =/ ) but in the show she is barely in existance. They NEVER EXPLAIN how Meroko died, and they completely changed how Takuto did. They both killed themselves on purpose, unlike in the show where takuto accidentally dies. Also, the way Eichi (i dont remember his name, but the guy Mitsuki is looking for) died....in the manga he died flying to America and never even made it there...in the show he died in a car accident years after he moved there...wtf. Also much much MUCH more. Specially Ooshige related stuff, i say this because, like i said, half the manga really IS about Ooshige...so the show, just by taking her stuff out, took out about 50% of the manga plus a little more. And then they took out a lot of stuff i didnt list as well, especially stuff near the end (they changed that a LOT)
