When this issue was originally published, few changes were made to the original artwork. May Oak was depicted with large breasts, and Misty's top revealed some cleavage. When the collected volume was later released, however, May's breasts were redrawn to be much smaller and Misty's top was recolored to a black one which does not reveal any cleavage.
