Beautiful, a serie that everyone most see, with an amazing story that will capture your full attention.
Certainly is a classic anime with a few years old, but I must say that's not so important as you may think, I'm pretty sure that there are lots of new series who want to have an audience of as many generation (children and adults) as this has.
Absolutely recommended for people of every age.

Alps no Shoujo Heidi is more then a story. It's a journey. You will both laugh and cry while watching this series. You will cry both tears of sadness and tears of joy. You will fall in love with Heidi (but in a weird way - she is a little girl), and you will fall in love with the Swiss Alps. This anime may be old, and it may be targeted towards children. However, that doesn't change the fact that it is a perfect series, and one of the most beautiful series ever told. Also, I ship Heidi and Peter. They'd make a cute couple. read more
