Remember that a few days ago there was an announcement about how Doraemon was finally coming to US television. Well let's say we're not getting the series in it's purest form.

Oricon Style website reported on changes that the Doraemon television anime is undergoing before its American television premiere this July. The Disney XD channel will run 26 episodes of the quintessential Japanese anime about a robot cat. The anime has been adapted for America's culture and customs, as well its strict guidelines on violence, depictions of discrimination, and depictions of sexual content.

The adaptation will move the setting from Japan to a fictional place in America. The robot cat Doraemon will still be Doraemon, while Doraemon's owner Nobita is now "Noby," the bully Gian is now "Big G" (Gian's original name is a wordplay on the English word "giant"), and the spoiled kid Suneo is now Sneech to invoke the word "sneer."Also no more "Dokodemo Door" for you, so get used to the "Anywhere Door"
