An anime that touches your heart and life
20 December 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This is an anime serial depended on the novel Daddy-long-Legs by Jean Webster. The story in the anime differs from the original novel in some ways, however it keeps many details respectively.

This is the story of an orphan girl, Judy Abbott. She lives is a dark and gloomy John Grier orphanage. But she never loses her sunny soul. She is very good at writing, some day, a trustee reads her ironic article and agrees to send her to a high school (in the novel he sends Judy to a college instead). But he has two conditions, his identity will keep a secret and he is known John Smith by Judy, and he wants Judy to write him a letter about her life and her progress every month. The anime covers Judy's 3 years in Lincoln Memorial High School. She doesn't tell anyone that she is an orphan. So she always thinks herself a liar and feels heartbroken because she cannot confront this truth. She falls in love with her roommate Julia's strange uncle Jervis Pendleton. She struggles to get a scholarship for university, she fights to survive and live on her own. And she always manages a smile.

This is a very powerful anime that touches your heart and your life. It is full of emotion and joy. While following Judy's story, you laugh and cry with her. And when finally she wins her battle to herself and open up herself to others, you simply respect her.

This is also a very funny anime that also includes sweet love stories. But its motto is freedom, justice and love. I am so glad to have Judy with me through my life. I recommend you to cheer up with Judy and fight for your goals just like her.
