After becoming an orphan, Heidi is forced to live with her grandfather Öhi, who lives in the Alps. She learns he's a very bitter man who only accepted by force to take her in. But Heidi's kindness may be able to open his heart. Together with the shepherd Peter and invalid Klara, she has lots of adventures.
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.
Although, I don't think either of them are old enough to think of boys/girls romantically yet. Then again, if my math checks out, at the end of the series Heidi is at least ten and Peter at least sixteen. (They were five and eleven at the beginning.)
One more thing. Heidi is the original moe character. Some otaku might say that moe began in the late nineties or early two thousands. To which I say, "No, moe began in the seventies maybe earlier."
Heidi of the Alps was one of the landmark anime tv series in the early 1970s that stood the test of time with its story, animation, art design & their lovely characters.
unite three of the most influenced minds in anime history: Takahata, Tomino & Miyazaki, & inside studio Nippon one of the most major studios in that time this masterpiece classic will not only one of the most beautiful anime series of that era but one of the turning point in anime history in the years to come.
& what have missed becoming a classic ?the adaptation was close to the original materials the storyboard
is great the animation looks cool the backgrounds were fantastic & the characters design was beautiful & not forget the directing which was superior to other shows in that time.
Back then, I didn't even know anime existed.
But I know one thing for sure - I loved this series.
Its atmosphere was so lovely... so where the characters and the story was not always just funny, but serious at the right moments.
Heidi, the protagonist girl, a pure and nice girl from the city is moving due to her mothers work (or so I remember). She's moving into the alps to her 'uncle' Öhi. First, they're pretty split up, but they begin to grow friends who can't be seperated. Her new friend Peter is in
charge of watching over a horde of goats. They always climb to the top of the alps and are having a stunning view from up there.
But things are not staying that way...
It's been a long time since I last watched it, so I'm probably going to check this out once again so I can write a more detailed review for this.
Right now, with all the things I can remember, I give this a 8/10.
