Canon Conflicts

Post by Ekuryua »

I've noticed a few canon conflicts between the animated series and the novel, and would like to document them. Also, if anybody else has noticed such conflicts, please post them below. Here's what I've noticed so far:

The Klanyu in the series are shown firing blue beams of energy as opposed to laser radiation like they did in the novel.
The Abh 'military officer' at Safugnoff is female instead of male.
Lafiel's eyes are grey instead of blue.
The conversation between Spunej Ramaj and the ambassadors concerns religion and God in the series, but in the novel it's about morals and fear of evolution. (Perhaps this is a translation issue?)

There are also things in the novel that were left out of the show (like Dusanyu's conversation with the Spunej), but this is attributable to the adaptation of the story to fit another form of media (i.e. television). These aren't necessarily contradictions, just omissions.

I have also noticed that in the novel that Lafiel told Jinto about her birth secert the day they met on their way to the Gosroth. Also in the novel and not in the anime as well, Lafiel told Jinto that she figured out that Plakia was her gene donor and that she freqently came to their home. The other things were that Lafiel mentions she has an aunt in the novel, at the end of the novel her brother is part of the group (Lafiel's father and Grandmother)that greets Lafiel and Jinto when they arrive at the capitol and Lafiel getting chewed out by the Former Emperors' Congress about the Febdash incident.

Also, Sobaach switched genders on us. Apparently he even has a beard in the novels.

Whoa, an Abh with a beard? Now that's worth seeing.

In the first COTS novel, some of the Gosroth crew had facial hair. One of them had a mustache. Also in the second COTS novel,Trife is on the pudgy side. Also in the second COTS novel, let's not forget about the first UM guards that Lafiel and Jinto encounter think that Lafiel was a doll.

Yeah, that doll scene was a bit surreal. Lafiel must be a pretty good actor...

That doll scene was one of my favorites. I had a good laugh when I read it. Wished it was in the anime.

And here I thought I was alone in thinking that that scene was a brilliant bit of daffy on Morioka's part. I had tears in my eyes the first time I read that.

It's almost as if Jinto got stereotyped as a desperate otaku... all he was missing were the creepy glasses.

Also, remeber the scene when Jinto called Lafiel an idot? That was also not put in the anime. That was humorus as well.
