This is a part of Nippon Animation's World Masterpiece Theatre, and I believe it to a masterpiece indeed. The story chronicles the life of an orphan girl named Jerusha 'Judy' Abbot through her teen-aged years up to her young adulthood.
The many characters in this series truly have depth and are far from being one-dimensional - It is amazing that the writers can introduce such characters and without giving them hours upon hours of screen time are able to define their persona. The feelings and opinions of Judy that is conveyed through her actions, interactions read more

This is an anime based off of a book, Daddy Long Legs, by Jean Webster. I'm a really big fan of the book, and when I found out that someone made an anime of the book, of course I had to see it!
All-in-all, it's a pretty decent anime... if you're a big fan of the book. Judy is a little obnoxious at the beginning of the series and the actual story doesn't get really good until right about episode... 25 or so, I guess.
But, if you can sit through all of Judy's obnoxious, embarrassing situations, then it's completely worth it. Especially for the ending! read more

This series can be summed up as endearing and absolutely charming.

While the plot differs some from the classic book ("Daddy Long Legs" by Jean Webster) on which it was based, "My Daddy Long Legs" is still a tender coming-of-age tale centered around the plucky orphan Judy Abbott, who is sent to a prestigious all-girls high school by a mysterious benefactor she dubs 'Daddy Long Legs'.

The story is set in early 20th century America--and I have to say I was impressed by how accurately this anime depicted the fashions, architecture, technology and experiences of this setting and time period. If you like historical fiction, this read more
