Synopsis

Nell is a young girl living with her grandfather, Mr Trent, the owner of a shop in London. As he couldn't payback a loan he made, he has to flee with Nell. They decide to search for Nell's mother, who is living somewhere in Great Britain...

Background

Sasurai no Shoujo Nell is based on The Old Curiosity Shop, a novel by Charles Dickens. Many of the plot points were altered and the overall tone of the series is notably more positive. It was the last show of the Kirin Meikyoku Roman Gekijou programming block dedicated to stories taking place in foreign countries, and the only one to feature 26 episodes instead of 13.

I'm surprised that nobody has made a review on this underrated gem, here! I guess i'll just make one for this show by myself.

Sasurai no Shoujo Nell (Wandering Girl Nell in english) is a anime show made as far back as 1979. The show is part of the progmming block called "Kirin Meikyoku Roman Gekijou". Sadly, not much is known about the programming block other than, assumingly, to be a rival to Nippon Animation's World Masterpiece Theatre.

There's only four shows made for the programming block. And unlike the other three where they are somewhat original, this one is based off the series of novel known ...
