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.

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

Heidi came out in 1974 created by an all-star staff: Directed by Takahata Isao (Tales of Princess Kaguya), Layout by Miyazaki (Spirited Away), Storyboard by Tomino (MSG), Music Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, and Background Art Mukuo Takamura (Gauch the Cellist). Basically, this was high on my list, if only to give a glimpse at.

Based on the 1880 book "Heidi," the story is "for children and those who love children." It focuses on a little girl named Heidi growing up with her Grossvater Ohi in the Alm Mountains for three years before her selfish Tante Dete takes her to live with a rich family in Frankfurt, Germany. read more
