This story is about a girl, Candy, who is a orphan. She is a nice and optimistic girl and she has a warm heart. When she was a child, she lived in an orphanage called Pony's Home. She had a good friend called Annie. And she met the "Prince of the Hill" who is a important person in her life, on the hill behind the orphanage.

She was adopted by the Leagan's family. What's awaiting her are the bad-hearted Neil and his sister, Eliza. One day, in the rose garden, she met a boy, who is identical to the "Prince of the Hill" who she had met in her childhood. The boy is called Anthony. Thereafter, a fantastic story that she has never expected begins.

Caught this anime and manga series when I was a kid, the impression it left... Long lasting after all these years. And I still laugh and cry with it regardless how many times I'd watched it.

As this is quite a long series, you can see characters develop; who eventually mature to become better persons (thou not all became better ;P). I think the series emphasized strongly on themes such as love, friendship, positivity, generosity and perseverance etc; which importance transcend age and time.

This is truly an all time classic (I hope my children will watch and learn from it someday).

I was in high-school when the anime was shown in my country. I really enjoyed it, watched every episode although my mom told me, "cartoons are for kids and not for teenagers". But I just couldn't stop watching it. Later I found the manga and read it to the end only in a week.

It was amazing, I loved every chapter, I even love now the story which is sometimes sad, sometimes happy and exciting. My all time favourite character from Candy Candy are Candy and Terry. Not just because they make an awesome couple, but they both are really unique characters.

Candy Candy it wasn't the first shojo, but it's really hard to me to imagine a series more influential that this. This manga is a classic, with a story and characters in the style of the best works of the bronte sisters. This manga has his lows and flaws, bu it always keeps quality telling a story that's still enjoyable, refreshing and malkes you feel, despite all the shojo manga that has been published after this. But, how?
like i've said before, the story remains me a lot to the bronte sisters' works, specially jane eyre: orphan girl, rich family, a tortured and problematic love read more
