First off, in all honesty, I'll have to admit that my review of this series is heavily biased, since this was among the very first animations I fell in love with as a little girl.
The story starts off when young Lynn and her mother travel from Japan to meet Lynn's father, Viscount George Marble, who lives in England. On their way to the Marble mansion, Lynn and her mother get into a tragic car accident in which Lynn's mother loses her life. When Lynn wakes up in the hospital, the truth about her mother's death is kept as a secret from her since her father can't bear to bring her such grief.
Soon after Lynn moves to her father's care to the Marble mansion where she encounters a miscellaneous cast of servants, most of whom are charmed by Lynn's adorableness. Lynn also finds out that she isn't the only child of Viscount Marble - she meets her elder step sister, Sara, whose mother has also passed away. At first Sara seems cold and distant towards her new younger sister, because she fears that Lynn's open and cheerful personality will win over the attention of their father as well as the handsome young man who lives nearby.
The motherless little girl tries to accommodate to the high society life and get the approval of the nobility. Her greatest wish is to become what her mother hoped her to be - a true Lady.
It's been 15 years since I first saw Lady Lady and certain scenes still make me curl up into a ball and cry like a baby. The show will doubtlessly appeal most to little girls such as myself long ago. Lady Lady is a magical and charming story about the importance of a family and what a person with a good heart can accomplish. Lynn is an exceptionally brave girl who pushes forward despite all the grave hurdles in her life and is, above all, very inspiring. Definitely not a story for the cynics.
