Differences from the Game

  • Iuchar and Iucharba are recruited at the same time in the manga adaptation. In the game, they cannot be simultaneously recruited, it has to be either one or the other.
  • The substitute characters do not appear.
  • Sylvia's daughter, Lene, does not appear in this manga either. This produces two plot holes in regards to their relationships with her prospect love interest Ares and Coirpre's foster father Hannibal, which are fixed in a roundabout way: Ares is hinted to have feelings for Julia instead, and Hannibal joined Seliph's army after Travant died instead of rescuing Coirpre at first in the game. Apparently, this was more of an issue with time and story constraints rather than the author disliking them.
  • Nanna is portrayed as being clingy to Leif, expressing jealousy towards his close friendship with Seliph.
  • While in-game, the romantic couples are chosen by the player, Nea Fuyuki established some pairings as a part of the storyline. Some of them are Seliph/Lana, Ares/Julia, Lester/Patty, and Leif/Nanna. Febail is also depicted as having one-sided feelings for Lana and Larcei is portrayed as being in love with Shannan.
  • Altena's affection for Arion is portrayed as being strictly familial without any of the romantic implications present in the game. It is also established that Altena was beaten by Travant as a child, and this resulted in her becoming emotionally dependent on Arion, who was the only person to ever show kindness to her.
