Miss Marilla Cuthbert and Mr. Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged siblings who live together at Green Gables, a farm in Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, decide to adopt an orphan boy from the asylum as a helper on their farm. Through a series of mishaps, what ends up under their roof is a precocious girl of eleven named Anne Shirley. Anne is bright and quick, eager to please but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and with her long braids of red hair. Being a child of imagination, however, Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the environment of Prince Edward Island.
If you've ever the read the original "Anne of Green Gables" book series or seen the CBC mini series/TV movies (1985-1987), then you will probably love to know that there is a manga series too! Akage no Anne is part 1 of the series. This manga is like a overview of the first few books leading up to Anne's official relationship with Gilbert. Though parts of the books are omitted, the charm of Anne is still present and the dialogue matches with the books/films. Some characters were not as I pictured, but on the whole main features are kept. The art style reflects that of classic vintage mangas- I found it cute. I think if you love the original story this will be a nice read.
