This bath scene is an adaptation of the 4th chapter of the Fairy Tail manga series. The changes made from the manga version aside from the altered design of Lucy's bathroom are:
- Lucy is first moment of screen time in the anime is her waking up and getting out of bed before the bath scene, while in the manga the bath is her first moment of screen time in the chapter (not counting the chapter cover).
- In the anime, Lucy wears a towel in the bath, curls her legs alot closer to her and the camera angle is different.
- The anime also reveals that the Towels that Lucy wears and drys her hair with are white.
- In the anime when Lucy is drying off in the Changing Room, she is directly in front of the mirror rather than at an angle.
- When Lucy comes out into her living room she casual just opens the curtain covering the changing room rather than happily leaping out like in the manga.
- In the series this bath scene is part of the "Daybreak arc".
- This is Lucy Heartfilia's shortest bath scene in the anime adaption.
- While this is the first appearance in the anime of Lucy's Ofuro, the Changing Room was already shown in the series 1st ending credits. This is also the only episode with that ending theme to have a bathing scene.
