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.

Like many stories in the World Masterpiece Theater set of anime, Emily of New Moon and Heidi focus on a young orphan who must adjust to a new life. Heidi is admittedly much more positive (potentially due to her much younger age), but both her and Emily are resilient and positive, and make new friends easily. Each takes place in a sweeping countryside with gorgeous scenery, as well. If you liked one, check out the other.

Tragic, historical tales your thing? If so, you'll enjoy both Perrine and Emily of New Moon. EoNM is more overtly tragic at the get-go but both have a remarkably similar feel. The fact that they both are a part of the World Masterpiece Theater helps, as well.

If tales of orphaned children in their newfound adventures interest you, you'd enjoy both Emily and Daddy Long Legs. Each main heroine has a feel-good attitude that inspires everyone around her.

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.
