* AdaptationDistillation: The OVA adds a few more characters to the roster, while [[DemotedToExtra downplaying]] Tadashi and his uncle and making Kaori the main character. Given that the original manga only had four main characters and was relatively short and straightforward, it's natural to assume that more characters would be added to give the OVA more meat to the story.
** Kaori herself has parts of her personality removed, specifically her obsessive clinging to Tadashi and her overly sensitive nose, while maintaining the same devotion to Tadashi. Her more negative attributes are shifted to two new characters, Erika and Aki.
** Tadashi retains his levelheaded personality even if his role is downplayed in Kaori's favor. [[spoiler: Their roles are generally switched, as Tadashi is the one who becomes infected by the gas while Kaori is trying to find him. The two don't even spend any screen time in the same room up until Kaori finally finds him at his uncle's house.]]
*** [[spoiler:Right before he is attacked by a shark]], Tadashi warns Kaori over the phone not to come to Tokyo, as the walking fish plague has spread there. Not that staying in Okinawa would have been any better...

** And now, Tadashi's reaction to a shark in his and Kaori's condo became this with Tadashi telling her to jump out the window.

*** Not just this, but the fact that it floated away from Okinawa and somehow found its way ''right to'' our protagonists all the way in Tokyo.
