Synopsis:

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.

Reyna

Emily and Pollyanna are both young girls who move in with their mother's side of the family aunt after their father suddenly dies. Both of their aunts at first only take the girl in because of 'duty' and are strict and old-fashioned. That's how both of the girls start their new orphan lives as they go through hardships, make friends and grow up.

Though Emily and Pollyanna are very different in personality, the set up of these two series is nearly exactly the same so it's a given you'll enjoy the other if you liked one of the two.

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 these series are based on books written by L.M. Montgomery. Because of this the two's setting and feeling are very much alike which ensures you'll love the other if you loved one of these series already.

Both of these anime are about a little girl who [sic] previously had a happy-go-lucky life until the sudden death of the only parent that they had which turns their life upside down as they are taken to live with devil-may-care adults, thus transforming them from being free and generous to shy and withdrawn.

They're both pretty sad anime, but these children continue to live and learn as their remarkable nature quickly befriends others around them and learn to adapt to the changes around them.

Candy Candy

Candy Candy

One snowy night, two babies were abandoned at an American orphanage: one of whom was dubbed Candice White due to her complexion and the name of a doll found with the child. As a young girl, 'Candy' lives a carefree life with her fellow friend Annie, until one day Annie is adopted by a rich family and forced to forget about her time at the orphanage. Candy soon follows suit and is adopted into a cruel situation, where love, reunions and other challenges await her. From country to country, Candy will experience the tragedy of heartbreak and the joys of friendship – but above all else, she will dream of the day that she met her beloved 'Prince of the Hill.'

While Emily of New Moon and Candy Candy both deal with an orphan (once since birth, the other since the tragic passing of her father), it's the tone and feel of the two that are the key to this recommendation. Not identical by any means, but if you liked one I think the other will be right up your alley.

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.
