This dub takes many liberties from the original Japanese version. Besides using the name changes that were used in AltJapan’s English adaptation of the original manga, other changes and edits have been made to make the show more relatable to an American audience, such as Japanese text being replaced with English text on certain objects like signs and graded papers, items such as yen notes being replaced by US dollar bills, and the setting being changed from Tokyo to a small town in the southern US state of North Carolina.
