Conclusion: Claire Stanfield invented his own urban legend.]]

** Issac and Miria tend to do this. Unfortunately because they are standout examples of TheDitz and CloudCuckooLander tropes, they are often bizzare in their inaccuracy and leads to frequent [[CrowningMomentOfFunny CMOF]].

** Some serious fridge brilliance ensues when you get to episode 9 and realize [[spoiler:that Claire's been lurking in the opening all along]].
** The reporters from the Daily Days newspaper, especially Rachel, are also missing from the opening. This is probably mostly just because the series has [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters too many major characters to fit them all into the opening sequence]].

* BeyondTheImpossible: Claire Stanfield thinks he's God, and considering the stuff he does he may not be too far off the mark.

* WickedStepfather: Tick's stepfather sold him to the mafia to pay off loans. The only reason he didn't sell the younger son was because he figured he could make more off of him.

Added DiffLines:

* ParryingBullets: Chane Laforet deflects bullets with [[KnifeNut knives]]. [[RuleOfCool Bullets fired from a pump-action rifle]]. In the novels, Chane's apparent Bullet Deflection was a fluke (pointed out in a monologue by Rachel who was observing the fight from behind Chane. (Ladd's perspective was obscured slightly by the smoke blowing back from the engine which a wind gust has pushed between them and he simply assumed she could deflect bullets and threw his gun away after the first first shot. The anime plays it up by adding extra shots, removing the fluke-nature, and removing Rachel from the scene (in the novel it's from Nice and Rachel's perspective), instead showing what one would guess is actually Ladd's recollection of the event (with his own embellishment).

* Goose in the novels makes a mention than Chane actually preferred practical combat clothes, she is wearing a military uniform in the original Lemures introduction that wasn’t shown in the Anime, and she wearing that black dress was an exception. Later though Chane made that black dress her default attire and no other character made mention she wore anything else but dresses.
* Rachel in her Fatigues style was specific for her ride in the Flying Pussyfoot, normally she dresses like any elegant lady of the Thirties, in the anime she is in her fatigues even out of the train and oddly no one comments on it as women in anything but dresses was very strange at that time if it wasn’t some sort of uniform for their jobs.

* LimitedWardrobe: The anime does have the characters wearing more than one style; however they omitted cases where the cast changed their style even more.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: While the anime is strictly based on the first three Light Novels, it also introduces characters and situations that would only be told with more detail in future volumes, as in it shows events that happened during ''The Rolling Bootleg'' and ''The Grand Punk Railroad'' timeline but weren’t unveiled in the 3 first volumes; Eve Genoard’s scenes, the full story of what happened in the Advena Avis and Graham’s kidnapping plan for example.
This list shows the last 10 events of 206. Show all.
