The cartoon that will bring tears to your eyes
4 December 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a great soap-opera like anime, I used to watch it with my two older sisters when I was 8 years old, it was such a romantic and beautiful anime.

In the Dominican Republic "Candy Candy" was one of the most watched anime in the whole country, and many people cried a lot, so did I in some episodes

The episode that makes everybody cry so much is "No te mueras Anthony" (Don't die Anthony) me and my sister cried on the episode where Anthony dies, Anthony was Candy's first boyfriend.

Candy is an innocent and beautiful 16 year old orphan girl and she was often bullied by Anthony's cousins Elisa and Neil and even they both send her to Mexico.

This anime made me cry a lot in many episodes including the one where Anthony dies, this anime will bring tears to your eyes.

I love this show, I hope I can see it again some day.
