One of my favourite Japanese anime ever! :)
6 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My mum decided one day to show me and my sister Candy Candy for a girly movie night and we were like 'a 30 year old anime that you liked when you were little? muum we're teenagers! we've got better things to watch' But after watching a few episodes we were obsessed with Candy (even singing the title song at random times)!! :) The storyline is absolutely the sweetest and saddest ever and it is soo soo funny and romantic! It made me feel so many emotions... It was nice for my mum to see it again cos it reminded her of her childhood and its is now part of me and my sister which is great(or cheesy...dunno :P)!! i will always love Candy, and Terry and all her friends!! My mum also says that i remind her of Candy yay!:) Ooohh yeah, and i recommend Perrine Monogatari which i watched when i was 10 and Tom Sawyer no Bōken which is basically The adventure of Tom sawyer...:)
