Differences from the GameEdit
- Johan and Johalva 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 child, Leen, does not appear in this manga either. This produces two plot holes in regards to their relationships with her prospect love interest Ares and Corpul'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 Corpul at first in the game. Apparently, this was more of an issue with time and story constraints rather than the author disliking them.
- There are some issues in regards to Nanna's characterization, as she seems to be very clingy to her love interest, Leif.
