Every child deserves to have a fun and carefree childhood. Unfortunately, life is not always fair, as is the case with Mary Lennox. At a very young age, Mary loses her parents to a disease, leaving her traumatized and orphaned. From India, she is brought to England with her uncle who has taken on the role of her new guardian.
Although she is sad to have lost her parents, Mary is happy and grateful to have someone to take care of her. She gets to eat everyday and live in a big mansion, things that she understands should not be taken for granted. However, her uncle is a very quiet person, hardly ever speaking to anyone. This solitude causes Mary to oftentimes get bored to tears, forcing her to relive horrible memories of her past.
As she enjoys a stroll outside one day, she discovers a secret garden near her home. Along with her new friends, Dicon and Martha, as well as her disabled cousin, Collin, Mary embarks on a journey that is sure to brighten her dull life to the uttermost extreme!
This anime is my 1st childhood favorite tv series. I don't know if it's just because I'm still young at that time or the story is really great but as what I remembered I always feel magical everytime I remember the garden in the story. Just lately I found myself having the urge to watch the old anime tv series during my childhood years so my first series that wanted to watch is this.
As I watched the first 5 episodes in the anime I concluded that the story is great not because I'm still young at that time but because the story and the animation
is great as it is. Too bad I only found 5 episodes with dubbed in my country language and I found the complete list but there's no English subtitles. Maybe if I can't wait for the English subtitles to be done by someone who can translate then I will watch the anime without subtitles. I'll just guess what they are saying and by just watching it will do in satisfying my yearning for this series.
The story is great with moral lesson.
The art may not be that great compared to anime today but it's still quite good to watch. Also Mary Lennox facial expressions is so adorable whether she is angry, mad, sulky or happy.
I love the way they voiced the anime. It adds to the feels on the characters. The song is well suit to the anime.
The characters fulfills their role where we can get lessons if we just attentively see and understand them.
This anime is great.
I just hope that someone pick this up and put English subtitles so that someone like me can also understand what they are saying so that all of us can be happy.
