The former three columns go chronologically down the manga, and the latter three go chronologically down the anime. This makes it easier to read, as there are many non-congruent chapters and episodes. Episodes or chapters that do not have a high level of similarity are accomponied by "N/A" in the following section.

The Offline Meeting (Group Suicide)
Another large difference was the mechanics once they arrived at the island. Most notably, the anime had depicted that Misaki and Yamazaki had successfully made it to the island to rescue Satou from killing himself. The chosen method of suicide was by jumping off of the precipice of the island, to which the group called up to stop them. Meanwhile, in the manga, Misaki and Yamazaki did not make it in time, because Yamazaki diverted their course to Comiket. Yamazaki was under the impression that Satou would never go through with suicide. Instead, the group had chosen asphyxiation by burning a fire in a closed tent, as their preferred method of suicide. Once everyone had decided against killing themselves except Satou, Satou forced them out as he was persistent to go through with his suicide. The group rescued him after he had passed out, and brought him back home.
The largest difference between the manga and the anime is on the basis of Misaki Nakahara's childhood. In both, Misaki tells Tatsuhiro Satou that her father was an abusive alcoholic, her mother comitted suicide as a result, and the woman who she did missionary work with was her Aunt. In the anime, these facts remain true, and they effect many of her subconscious actions, motives, and even provide foundation for many of the events. For example, there are vague recollections of her mother's suicide in front of her eyes on Ishihama Promontory. This drove the location of her attempt in Episode 24 to commit suicide.
However, in the manga, she admits to Satou that she fabricated the entire story to make him feel bad, as a form of revenge. Little is known about her father, however, the woman she does missionary work with she refers to as "Mom", which suggests that she is alive and well.
In both the manga and the Light Novel, there is much more emphasis placed on the fact that Misaki uses Satou to justify her own sense of self-worth. In fact, she will go to the point of manipulating him in many cases, and uses her advantage over his desperate nature to turn Satou into a slave, whether for his own good or for her desires. In the anime, she is seen is much more attached and gentle with Satou. In fact, this shallow nature of her personality made it so that her backstory and personal life became irrelevant in the anime, while the manga and LN put much more emphasis on her life, as well as Yamazaki's.
- The three main events of Chapter 3 are: flashbacks and meeting up with Hitomi, the contract having been signed, and Yamazaki's bringing of Satou to a maid café. All except the last one are in Episode 5 of the anime. The last scene happens in Episode 4 of the anime.
