Candy the orphan has lived a tragic yet touching life, moving from family to family and falling in love with several boys. She has just returned to her first home at the orphanage, and discovers that a new girl, Alice, is living a solitary and melancholy life without many friends or companions. To help boost Alice’s spirits, Candy sits down with the children and tells about her life, from the orphanage to boarding school, from her first love Anthony to recently-departed Terry and beyond. Afterwards, Candy will set forth on her newest adventure: to become a nurse and help others!
This was, and is, and probably always will be one of my favorite anime series /ever/. I absolutely adored Candy Candy non OVA. And Candy Candy [parts of what i saw] the movie. It's heart-warming, old animation, wonderful colourful characters, shows the "Truth behind characters masks." and so on. For those picky about animation "upto date" is not on this one's list, Nostalgic, and old, and wonderful.
