I recently bought the manga, I don't mind the chronological order being mixed up, but switching characters is very glaringly obvious. Especially episode 6.
|Some unknown judgment girl has been switched with Komari during the searching scene. They are also searching at a bridge instead of a tree. I can understand a tree, but why a bridge?|
|But the reverse for the bomb explosion scene. The male accomplice remains unchanged.|
|This actually takes place later, after the bag-searching hunt. Instead of a fat guy who spotted trouble from far, it's our Mikoto who had walked past the trouble-makers a while earlier in misery. Also notice the lack of shade from the sun.|
|Although there isn't any character change, the impact illustrated in the manga is lost in the anime version, though for the latter, she shows her anger at Mikoto instead. Also, Kuroko is not visible when she starts to eat until Uiharu notices her presence.|
Oh in the manga, Uiharu also has a cold.
|I don't know if it's because of the gore or just want to give the suspense that he's still alive (I think), the anime only showed his right arm, where the judgment armband is visible.|
Did I say that the timeline is all over the place in the anime? Mikoto is not supposed to have met Kiyama Harumi (木山春生) until later on, sometime after the first episode of Index
where we see Touma being chased by thugs.
