The series also features some changes in character design. "Shooting Star" was added as a subtitle in for the US release to differentiate it from the original manga series. The original Japanese manga, all the chapters were called 'Shoots' without titles. The English version adds movie titles to each chapter instead of song titles like in the anime.
