* FlowerMotifs: The original Japanese title "Carmelia Girl" comes from a Japanese kamishibai play, where a young flower seller ends up singing in a revue show to pay her father's debt. The kamishibai play has a much happier ending; [[spoiler: not only does the girl's father come back, but she made enough money to pay off the debt]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Justified, since the original was meant to look grotesque, with special mention to the midget (who is played by Shunsuke Kazama) and the mummy man, who, while still covered in bandages and burns, is still pretty sexy.

* BenevolentBoss: Mr. Arashi is this on a good day. He did let Midori have a day off when she was sick, and does pay the freaks well when they actually make money.



* DarkerAndEdgier: The original kamishibai play is nowhere near this dark and depressing. For example, this Midori is sexually abused on stage, while in the original story, she sings kitschy sentimental songs. On top of that, the ending is much happier.



* RetroUniverse: The live action film. One example, despite being set in the Taisho period, the freaks main mode of transportation is a modern van, among other things.

* LighterAndSofter: The 2016 movie; justified as it is meant for a more mainstream audience than the source material. Midori isn't abused constantly (or fetishised on stage) and seems to be just their chore girl and is mostly left alone, the puppy stomping isn't shown on camera, and [[ spoiler: Midori gets to be an actress like she wanted.]]
