Synopsis

Anne is an orphan full of imagination. When she arrives at her new home she learns that sometimes you have to be a sensible person too; at the same time her unique character changes, or at least attracts, the people around her. The story covers Anne's growth from about eleven to seventeen years old as she makes friends, goes to school and studies. At a difficult point in her life, Anne will have to make a hard choice and perhaps find a new dream.

The year is 1876 and the Second Industrial Revolution is at its dawn. The world was only a few years away from witnessing the wonders of electricity. Countless technological innovations in the industry, in an ever-growing scheme, are slowly shaping a whole new spectrum of efficient and flexible methods of production. In order to satiate a ravenous hunger for power and resources, Europe's Imperialistic giants once again turn their eyes towards the vast lands of Africa and Asia.

Meanwhile, in Prince Edward Island, Canada; life follows its course as if unaware of the changes around the globe. Rural lifestyles without much commotion characterize the read more

Akage no Anne doesn’t seem to be a particularly grand story if one was to simply read the blurb - there are no dramatic plot twists, no tyrants to defeat, no epic quest spanning galaxies - it is just a very simple tale of a young orphaned girl coming to terms with herself and others.

Akage no Anne takes place in the late nineteenth century, in the fictional town of Avonlea on Prince Edwards Island, Canada. Here siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, both reaching into their 50's and 60's, are looking to adopt a boy of around 10 to help them with the farm work. read more

After finishing Akage no Anne I was awestruck. I was lost for words. Now, a good amount of hours later, I am unable to sleep. I've been thinking about Akage no Anne all day, all week even (as I've been watching it every day) and I've decided that I simply must review it before I can go to bed.

First, a bit about the director, Isao Takahata. He is the only director of animation (that I'm aware of) that exploits the distinct contrast between realism and fantasy. His work generally follows a realistic style, but with sudden outbursts of the fantastic (or "magical"). This style fits read more

The "World Masterpiece Theater" version of "Anne of Green Gables" turns the book into a comprehensive fifty-episode series, absolutely the best adaptation ever made. Anne Shirley is a red-headed orphan girl who talks too much, has a big imagination, and gets herself into all sorts of trouble. When a mistake places her in the care of elderly siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert at Green Gables in the the town of Avonlea, she inspires a lot of headaches, but also becomes a vital piece of their family.

Directed by Isao Takahata in his pre-Ghibli days, and staffed by plenty of other familiar names read more

Recommendations

Both anime are inspired by novels (respectively Anne of Green Gables & Little Women) and both fall under the slice of life and drama genres. In both the main character is a rather tomboyish and imaginative girl. They also have the same character design and storyboard-maker.
both about two girls who suffered from being Orphan , and lived with other people.
and try so hard to make their dream comes true.
Both of them are adopted into another family and Anne and Emily's behavior are similar. Story has too many resemblances such as aunt Elizebeth's and Merilla's concern toward Emily and Anne, respectively. Even Matthew and Emily's uncle's behavior are similar.
Both are realistic stories made in 70´s and tell about orphan girl child who gets adopted. They have much difficulties in life and everything with adoption doesn't go as they dreamed. Anne and Candy both are tomboyish and have unique personality. Slice of life stories.
Both have realistic and realy sad story. Same drawing style. Classics from the 70´s. And they were both made by the same Director (Isao Takahata).
The next installment to the World Masterpiece Theatre Series. Konnichiwa Anne, or Before Green Gables, is the prequel to the 1979 classic by Isao Takahata. If you liked Anne, then you'd probably like to find out about her past.
