Differences between the anime and the manga

  • Judy and Kyle are absent in the manga.
  • During May's dream sequence, it is implied that May is naked while in the water while there is obviously no question in the film that she is wearing clothes.
  • After his submarine is destroyed, The Phantom threatens to take May hostage and wields a pillar as a weapon, instead of failing to hold the pillar up and being crushed.
