Dialogue Change

The most drastic change is in the scene where the big butt bandits stare at Plue. In the subs, the big butt bandits think Plue is cute whereas in the dub, the leader thinks how he got in a life of crime with his comrades. Interestingly, they still stare at Plue with those eyes in the dub version.

Also in the dub, the bandits were trying to find the vault whereas in the sub, they were trying to find the conductor's room.

In the sub, Plue "pees" on the bomb while in the dub, Haru says Plue spill apple juice on it.


In the sub, Griffon remembers a lot of things in his flashback which includes meeting of new people, battles, and Elie's breasts. Compared to the dub, Griffon remembers Elie at the beach and comments on how beautiful she is. The deleted scenes are meeting of new people, battles, and Elie's breasts. See images below.

Peeking at Elie
Peeking at Elie
