I absolutely understand where you're coming from, especially about the overdramatization. Dr. Chilton's death in particular felt a little too convenient. Having watched Pollyanna after Sara and right after My Annette I thought it seemed like it tried to go for something similarly tearjerking, even though the source material itself wasn't quite suited for that, but in the end I thought it was quite heartwarming and some moments were genuinely touching.
Some other things that annoyed me was how often they showed the flashback of Pollyanna with her father, and how obvious Jimmy being Ruth's son was long before it was "officially" revealed.
Pollyanna herself gets bonus points from me for being voiced by Mitsuko Horie. Infact most of WMT has great casting for the main female characters.

I really think you would enjoy the first Little Women series. It is probably the one that is most similar to Anne in terms of themes and, arguably, quality. They both have the same character designer too, Yoshifumi Kondo, who you probably know directed Whisper of the Heart! One of its greatest strengths, I think, is how well realized the characters are, both in design and personality.

Pollyanna was my least favourite before I watched Katri. I bumped it up one point because, while I don't think Katri is as good as it, I didn't think it deserved a 5 either, and after some reflecting I realized that I actually liked Pollyanna quite a lot. I actually enjoyed watching Katri well enough to finish it in less than a week, which I think is a testament to the general quality of the WMT series, that even my least favourite was that engaging. However, that high standard makes Katri stick out all the more when put up against masterpieces like Anne. Interestingly, I've heard that Katri is pretty popular among Japanese fans and is considered underrated or overlooked. I do hope you end up enjoying it more than I did.

I do enjoy it. However, at first I was a little disappointed that it essentially retcons a lot of the first series, which ends with Jo travelling to New York to become a better writer, while you are told explicitly that she and Theodore will end up married.
In this, all of that is thrown out of the window; she has apparently given up writing, married Fritz and started a school, all with no explanation. The story has very little to do with the first one, and might as well have been its own self contained story, so the changes felt meaningless. Even so, I've gotten over my initial grievances and am enjoying it thoroughly.

Likewise, I'm interested to hear your take on Katri. I'm sad to say I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would, especially since out of all WMT series it is the one set closest to my country culturally. Not that it's bad, per se, but it felt aimless. Little seemed to actually happen and the character designs were weird.

No problem! It really is a perfect union of magical girl shenanigans (CCS) and grounded realistic development (Ghibli/WMT).

You seem like a person who would really like Ojamajo Doremi

Eu não deveria me meter nessas histórias porque são muito imprevisível e estável. Eu pegar um filme e fazer a legenda sozinha porque deu vontade e upar em algum lugar é fácil, participar de algo mais longo e que outros dependem... mesmo assim não consigo evitar de querer ajudar.
Infelizmente o máximo que posso fazer é talvez ajudar a revisar alguma legenda e talvez nem isso.
Desculpa, se pudesse eu pagava por legendas de todas as séries do WMT e outros animes que tenho interesse, se pudesse já teria feito isso.
Estou por aqui mas é melhor não contar comigo, eu posso acabar sumindo sem aviso um dia desses.
PaninaManina Jun 27, 6:44 PM
Tô vivo.
E nesse meio tempo nem assisti direito Katri, imagina mexer em legendas.
Nesse ritmo... não que legendas do WMT fiquem prontas rápido...
Não fui com a cara da Hanna desde o momento que ela apareceu, bom que ela já saiu da história.

Heh, someone would have to dig pretty far to think WMT is somehow for the top 1%. Yeah, you never know who will take interest. I try to mention WMT when I can as well. That's actually how I found it in the first place; through word of mouth. Someone posted a link to Romeo no Aoi Sora's page in a thread and I found the premise captivating. I ended up starting with that and Shoujo Cosette. Needless to say that the impact was unforgettable.

I've been eyeing up Akage no Anne, Ai Shoujo Pollyanne, and Porphy no Nagai Tabi for a while now. I try to spread it out a bit and watch one every half a year or so. It lets me savor it a bit more and makes me constantly appreciate the passion put behind WMT.

Hey. I saw your post in the Slice of Life thread (it got locked). Your description of WMT really resonated with me. Particularly the part about empathy and how commanding it is within WMT. I haven't seen many of them, but my favorite is Les Misérables: Shoujo Cosette. At the time, it tapped into a sense of good will and compassion that I had never felt up to that point. The importance of bringing good tidings to others despite, or maybe even because of, the human condition and all of its challenges.

As pessoas estão falando e assistindo Sakura agora por causa da nova série não é?
Não deve ser coincidência.

Sakura não está aqui na minha lista?
Deve ser um caso onde não considero assistido do modo correto, porque eu assisti sim, só que foi na TV.
Deve ser bom assistir em alta qualidade com som original, só que agora prefiro assistir coisas que nunca assisti.
Problema é tempo, e descobrir e ficar com vontade de assistir outras coisas que tomam tempo, como novela coreana... vixe. Assisti uma e tentar parar com ela porque preciso cuidar de assistir muita lista de filmes que só cresce. Mas essa semana mesmo por causa do mangá Slow Motion fiquei com vontade de assistir Sukeban Denka, novelinha japa da década de 1980.
Sabe como é, essa vida de gostar de entretenimento.

Olá, Vini! Como vai? ^^

Depois que assisti o trailer de "Anne" no canal da Netflix, sabe aquela sensação de "ficar com água na boca"? Foi essa a sensação que tive.

Fiquei impressionado com a atriz que foi escolhida para interpretar a Marilla Cuthbert. Lembrou-me muito a Coleen Dewhurst (que interpretou essa mesma personagem na série de 1985).

Mudando um pouco de assunto, o que achou de "Perrine Monogatari"?

Abraço!
