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.

Very innocent, fun, and at times moving anime.
It portrays life in the Alps in a beautiful way.
Watching the BD, the art style was very clean and colorful.
They often give you landscape scenes worthy of being a painting to be hung to a wall.

I love all of the characters and grew very attached to them (with the exception of a certain governess).

Heidi, the main character, is a cheerful girl full of life and she constantly goes to adventure with her young goatherd friend Peter, a kind kid who is very knowledgeable about the mountains.
Heidi's caretaker, her grandfather, is a bit of a hermit is read more

There are many works which are said the masterpiece of Japanese anime. However, if asked, ' what is the masterpiece?' by those who have just started to watch anime, I will recommend them this 1973 work, "Alps no shoujo Heidi (or, just 'Heidi')."

It is based on a fiction 'Heidi' by Johanna Spyri, but the staffs of "Alps no shoujo Heidi" made some changes. They focused more on the way Heidi lived in Alps and in Germany, and on the relationships between characters, that is, the staff depicted the daily-lives of characters.
This TV series was directed by Isao Takahata, famous for "Panda Kopanda," "Hotaru read more
