* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' to the rest of the ''franchise''. While ''Gundam'' was the start of the "Real Robot" genre, there were a number of SuperRobot elements still attached to the anime, among those being the Gundam Hammer, the TransformingMecha G-Fighter and the various MonsterOfTheWeek Mobile Suits like the Gouf and the Gyan. The movie trilogy dumped many of the Super Robot elements in favor of the more realistic ideas such as the Core Booster.

** The series is notable for being one of the precious few entries in the franchise where the protagonist doesn't receive a MidSeasonUpgrade. This was later {{Retcon}}ned in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket''. Christina is revealed to be the test pilot for an upgraded Gundam that is scheduled to be given to Amuro, but it ends up being damaged beyond repair by the end of the series.

* In the first volume of ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD'' (and the movie adaptation based on it) D is killed in battle with [[TheDragon Rei-Ginsei]] when Rei uses time-bewitching incense (which can convince the senses that day is night or vice-versa when lit) to throw off D's vampire senses. Fortunately for him he's revived by his parasitic right hand. In pretty much every volume of the series after this D is basically an InvincibleHero who no other antagonist can do more than slow down, with the only opponent who might be able to seriously threaten him being [[{{Dracula}} his father]]. (This is downplayed in the 2nd movie, ''Bloodlust,'' where D's vulnerability to sunlight is played up somewhat to make him less invincible.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'': The first few chapters have a lot more emphasis on relatively tame physical comedy and slapstick than the {{Ecchi}}-driven content of the original manga's later chapters and ''Darkness'' became known for. The {{Fanservice}} is still there, but it's not nearly as pervasive or explicit; CensorSteam is way more common, and some of the early chapters don't even contain ''any'' nudity at all.

* An early chapter of ''FruitsBasket'' has Hanajima show up to Tohru's sleepover wearing a light-coloured dress. This was before the manga established she only wears black after [[spoiler:nearly killing a classmate with her psychic powers]].

** Ranma in any least the first chapter/episode while a bit short-tempered was considerably more polite than the JerkWithAHeartOfGold fans know him as. His teasing of Akane seemed to come more from his lack of social skills, and any dickishness. Kasumi was a lot more mischievous than the virtual saint of the series - not to mention her flash of anger [[WhatTheHellHero calling Genma out on training Ranma in a dangerous area]]. Nabiki while focused on money, didn't quite have a MoneyFetish and was more interested in boys.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Levi's early appearances actually illustrate her having decently sized breasts before she was established to be a {{Pettanko}}.

** It had absolutely ''no'' [[FightingSpirit Stands]] until the third part, despite Stands being the best known feature of the series. Instead, the first two parts focused on the Ripple, a.k.a. Hamon, a martial art used to hunt vampires. Stands were introduced in Part 3 for a change of pace --Araki says that he wanted to represent PsychicPowers with more interesting visuals-- and [[CrazyAwesome things started getting really weird from there]].

** Since Part 1, several characters have been [[MusicalThemeNaming named after Western musicians, bands, songs, and albums]]. In the case of Stands, this didn't apply for them until the start of Part 4. Cream from Part 3 was the first Stand to follow that theme, but the other Stands from the same Part weren't. 22 of them are named after the [[TarotMotifs Major Arcana Tarot cards]], 9 were named after the Ennead... and then, there's [[OddNameOut Tenore Sax]], the only Stand named after a musical instrument. The first few Stands with Tarot names also had a [[ColourfulThemeNaming color theme]], such as Hermit Purple, Hierophant Green, and Yellow Temperance, until Araki dropped that idea not too long after.


Added DiffLines:

** Parts 1 and 2 are short in length compared to future parts. Part 1 went on for 44 chapters in the manga, while Part 2 had 69 chapters. Parts 3-6 went on for little more than ''150'' chapters each, and Part 7 had 95. Anime-wise, Part 1 had only 9 episodes and Part 2 had 17. They were both combined into one season of 26 episodes. Compare that to Part 3's anime adaptation, which was made up of 2 seasons, each consisting of 24 episodes. That's an impressive total of ''48''. Considering the length of Part 3 and its manga to anime transition, fans already have an idea that Parts 4-6 will gain a similar treatment.

Added DiffLines:

* In the first chapter of the ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' manga, banknotes are seen and the characters outright say that money has become useless. Later on, no more forms of currency are seen and the anime adaptation never even mentions money.
