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as they are taken to live with devil-may-care adults, thus transforming them from being free and generous to shy and withdrawn.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.

Reyna Reyna says...

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.

Both are slice-of-life stories with protagonists that you cannot stand at first but will grow on you as they grow up.
