It follows several of the traits and tropes that made the WMT popular, starting with being based on already famous non-Japanese media, but it never was a part of it.

** For example: 1987's ''Little Women'' changed the March family's live-in maid, Hannah, from Irish to African-American descent and introduced a runaway slave character named Jim, possibly to educate Japanese viewers about the plight of African-Americans in the 19th century. Also, the series opens with Amy's schoolteacher leaving to volunteer for the Union Army and the Battle of Gettysburg ravaging the countryside around the family's hometown.
