At twelve years old, Candice White (otherwise known as Candy) is the oldest remaining child at the Poni Orphanage. With her spirits held high, Candy dreams of the day a wonderful family will take her home; and on one fateful day, it seems her dream has come true… or has it?

Akage no Anne

Akage no Anne

For farmers on Prince Edward Island at the end of the 19th century, the world should be simple; with enough manpower, you can till the soil and trade the results for the goods you need to live. If you don't have the strength to farm, get more helpers. But what if the world is more complex? Anne, a mischievous orphan girl, dreams of a world where she can make a difference. An aging pair of siblings realizes that they cannot get by on their own. When their worlds collide, they discover that life in utopia is anything but ordinary, as long as you have enough imagination...

Both Akage no Anne and Candy Candy are calm stories about the life of a poor county girl who is finding her place in life. I think Candy and Anne are both sweet and kind girls with a big heart capable of doing good thing for others and to love. Neither of them understands why there are people who are bad and both believe that everyone has his good side. The drawing style is very alike and the times the stories take place in are also alike.

Emily of New Moon

Emily of New Moon

When Emily Starr's father died, she was left in the care of her deceased mother's family, the Murrays. However, the rich and prestigious Murrays never approved of Emily's simple father, and she was thus not welcomed into loving arms. With her trusty cat and nary a possession, Emily left for her new home - New Moon - where many a joy and sorrow awaited her. Now, along with tough Ilse, artistic Teddy and loyal Perry, Emily will laugh, cry, and try to win the hearts of her new family.

A story about a not very happy girl in not very fair world. Who would you think about first? I think Candy Candy and Emily of new moon has lots of things in common - both girls are orphants, both leave for a new homes, both strugle from unfair events and both find their happiness in some way.

Both anime have a twelve-year-old orphan girl who has various problems and must be strong.

The basic differences are that in Full Moon, Mitsuki has mostly physical problems in modern age Japan but Candy has more emotional problems (like hate from others).

Usually their problems are solved with the help of shinigami (Full Moon) and adopted brothers (Candy Candy Series).

Both anime will make you cry almost in every episode.

Lady Georgie

One day, after tragedy strikes, the family is torn in irreparable ways and Georgie finds herself abandoned to her fate once more.

Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves
  • TV Special (1 ep x 72 min)
  • 1993

Ocean Waves is a coming of age tale centered around Taku, an ordinary high school student, his best friend Matsuno, and Rukiko, a reserved outcast who has caught Matsuno's eye. While bounds of friendship are tested, unlikely relationships grow and flourish in this made for television movie.

The complex love triangles in "Ocean Waves" and "Candy Candy" are very similar. The simplest phrase to comment both anime would be "she loves him, but she is loved by another one" or vice versa. In the end, of course, the lovers will find their match but before that there will be many complex and unexpected situations. Both anime are rather calm and light, and would be preferable for those who love romance anime.
