Plot

Changes

Changes From the Manga

Dub Changes

  • In the Thai dub, the scenes where the girls were in their swimsuits were heavily censored and the swimsuits were blurred with mosaic. This has happened in other Thai dubs of anime, such as in the Thai dub of Dragon Ball Z, where male torsos were often blurred.[1]

First Appearances

Trivia

  • The expression used by Kijin Shinokawa when possessed by Nephlite is "Geijutsu wa bakudan da" or "Art is a bomb"; this is a variation on the catchphrase "Geijutsu wa bakuhatsu da!" (Art is an Explosion!), made famous by Japanese artist Taro Okamoto.
