The Recca no Honoo manga was adapted into an anime by Studio Pierrot back in 1997. First aired last July 17, 1997 on Fuji Television, it ended last July 10, 1998 with a total of 42 episodes. Several differences could be noted between the anime and the manga. For one, the art and coloring of some characters differ. Fuuko has brown hair and green eyes in the manga while she sports purple hair and blue eyes in the anime. Also, Tokiya has light blue hair in the manga while he has greyish brown hair in the anime. Aside from the art differences, there are also some aspects of the fights that changed. One fight that changed drastically was the fight between Joker and Koganei in the Ura Butou Satsujin finals. Though it ended the same, in the anime, we didn't get to see what Joker's madougu power is and what he could do. And last but not the least, the anime only tackles the manga up to the Ura Butou Satsujin arc which is just really half of the story.
