Young Maya’s passion is drama and the theatre -- so much so that sometimes her grip on reality wavers. Most consider her to be a lost cause, destined to live with her head in the clouds… but things change when the legendary actress Tsukikage sees potential in Maya; and when she offers to train her, Maya eagerly accepts. Yet the road to fame is paved with hardship; with strong rivals to test her and close friends to spur her on, will Maya be able to reach her ultimate goal?

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.'

If you are looking for an older shoujo show that happen to be about a girl who is happy go lucky no matter what she faces look no further than these 2 titles. Her life is difficult in each show but she'll try her hardest to get better at what she aims to be in life. Candy Candy takes on being a nurse as a career where Glass Mask is all about becoming a great actress. These 2 are super similar even though the goals of each girl are very different. Try either out if you enjoyed the other. (I personally think Candy Candy is way better)
