Once upon a time, a woman named Louisa May Alcott published the book Little Women, and it wound up being a surprise hit, so much so that it spawned two sequels. It's popularity around the world couldn't be ignored. It was so popular in Japan that FIVE anime were made for it within three decades, two of those anime being part of the World Masterpiece Theater staple. The first series was made in 1987, and this version, based on the book Little Men, in 1993, the year I was born. On another related note, whenever a show or anime gets a sequel, usually it's just read more

This is a World Masterpiece Theatre anime if I believe. None of those are good.

The main commonality between all WMT anime is that the plot progresses at a snails pace and the space inbetween doesn't build the characters with well composed comedy slice of life or build the world with the same. They may be 40 episodes long because they linger on individual details long after the point's come across. This is apparent with this series too.

I can't really comment much on the story since I've only seen one episode, but the story doesn't gain anything by being adapted to animation in the WMT way.
