Synopsis

Two baby girls were born in the same hospital: one of them is the daughter of an aristocratic family while the other belongs to a deprived household which lives in the slums of the city. However, the nurse-in-charge, Michiko, secretly switches the two babies due to a personal grudge, resulting in a change of fates of the girls from then on. Many years later, the lives of the two girls continue to be intertwined with each other, with the rich Miki ill-treating the poor Nozomi, yet both of them hold similar dreams to become a singer.

Comparing with the recent anime trends, which is flooded with anime witb average, unhappy or frustrated protagonists that gets teleported to worlds where their discontents are magically solved and life suddenly is exciting, anime/manga from the 70's often feature protagonists that come from below (often poverty) and that have to face and overcome critical adversities by themselves.
