      • Kageyama was the protagonist instead of Hinata.
      • Hinata was described as being clumsy when it came to sports, being more of an Accidental Athlete in the original pilot.
      • Kageyama was number 10 in the chapter but 6 on the cover art and Hinata was number 12; later changing to Kageyama being number 9, Hinata 10, Yamaguchi 12, and Ennoshita 6.
      • Daichi, Kageyama, Hinata, and Tanaka were the only members of Karasuno that appeared; Suga, Asahi, Noya, Ennoshita, Narita, Kinoshita, Tsukishima, and Yamaguchi not appearing at all.
      • Karasuno was initially named "Hiashi."
      • Tanaka's personality was much harsher, being a Jerk Ass and rude to Kageyama and Hinata, but moreso to Hinata, and was mellowed out into a strong Big Brother Mentor with a strong Big Brother Instinct towards Hinata in the canon story.
