Synopsis

Based on the famous classic novel Les Miserables.

Being a single mother is hard in early 19th Century France. When young Cosette was traveling with her mother trying to find a job and a place to live, they were always shunned away because very few employers hire single mothers. When she is promised with the prosperity of working in the big city, Cosette is separated from her mother in the hopes a caretaker will watch over her while her mother earns some money. Unfortunately this was a trick and the caretaker is a corrupt man who makes Cosette his indentured servant. Then the kind mayor of the town that Cosette makes her new home in sees how winds of change are so detrimental for children and families, and decides to do something about it.

I recently read Les Misérables in class and completely fell in love with it. I googled "Les Misérables anime", not expecting to find much, and was very pleased to discover such a lengthy and faithful adaptation. There were a few changes here and there, but most I didn't mind, and some I liked. For example, a large portion of this series is from Cosette's point of view, which I actually found nice because in the novel, the reader hardly knows her and she is written very passively. In the anime she shows strength and personality that we never saw in the book.

Story - 8
What can I say? Shoujo Cosette is an adaptation of my favorite book of all time, Les Miserables, and it's overall surprisingly faithful to the original text. Especially when you consider that SC is geared toward children, and the original is...well, definitely not.

That said, SC gets an 8 and not a perfect 10 from me because in their effort to keep the anime kid-friendly, Nippon Animation committed some pretty grievous crimes against the original canon. I'll keep it vague here, but I'll settle for saying that some characters who ought to have died survive for the dumbest reasons. Overall, though, their attention to read more

Recommendations

Not that the genre or target audience is similar.
Actually, although Les Miserables was made for kid's theater, I think it's indeed too heavy for the kids to understand the stress & strains.

Anyway, if you are looking for melodramas which can drive your mood down low, to an extent which make you having difficulty to continue, Les Miserables first season & Kiminozo are good choices.

Kimi ga nozomu Eien - romance & trauma victim & "Bizarre Love Triangle"
Shoujo Cosette - the most unlucky girl (?), poverty & unfair society in the past
Both are based on works of fiction produced a few centuries ago.
Both are Drama and Shoujo
Both have Romance
They are (or at least the original source material for Romeo + Juliet) are set in Europe.
Both have had various adaptations of films, books, plays. etc
One has Fantasy as an extra genre, although the original play, does not.
