Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 3)

Thank you for the feedback to the previous posts in this series so far, and some of you asked me to talk about the age gap between Albert and Candy. Before Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), for decades the fans had believed Albert was around Anthony’s age when he appeared as a Scottish teenager to little Candy …

Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 2)

I truly appreciate the ongoing support from the administrator of the Facebook page, William Albert Andrew (el príncipe de la colina). She has continuously provided various resources and her insights to inspire me to keep my blog alive. For example, almost right after I published my previous post, Candy and Prince on the Hill, she …

Candy and Prince on the Hill

It’s a known fact that Mizuki, the author of Candy Candy, was inspired by Daddy-Long-Legs, an epistolary novel published in 1912 by Jean Webster. If you haven’t yet read this book, you might want to skip this post. However, if you don’t mind reading spoilers, then please read on. 😉 Daddy-Long-Legs mainly consists of letters …

The day her life changed (Part 7)

As I have mentioned more than once, there is no concrete evidence in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) that Candy was blindly (or indefinitely) waiting for Terry to leave Susanna and come back to her. I’ve explained in many posts that Candy had happily moved on in her life, accepting without grudges or jealousy that Terry and Susanna were already a …

The day her life changed (Part 6)

I read the following somewhere, that “if a man is able to tell you the story of how the two of you met and fell in love, you are the old lady in The Notebook.” (Have you seen the movie The Notebook? If not, you should. 😛 ) Anyway, if you read Candy Candy Final Story …

The day her life changed (Part 5)

Remember I have mentioned that the order of the last two letters in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) epilogue might have been swapped? As explained in The day her life changed (Part 4), Candy possibly sent a mental letter to Anthony some time before writing a very long letter to Albert. The way Candy began the mental letter gives me the impression …

Susanna and Candy (Part 2)

I was going to talk about Susanna in Part 5 of The day her life changed, but it turns out I have a lot more in mind that it deserves a standalone post. 🙂 When Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) was first published, some readers were shocked that Susanna died. Some even rejoiced at the …

The day her life changed (Part 4)

As explained in More than words (Part 1), Candy’s mental letter to Anthony in the epilogue of Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) might occur before she wrote a long reply to Albert after her day trip to Lakewood with him. Please read the aforementioned post for details, but this time, I’d like to focus on Candy’s letter to Anthony …

Birthday present!

Those who have read my long story Love Never Fails (El Amor Nunca Falla) might have known that in Chapter 4, Albert and Candy were outside when it was raining heavily. As a result, they were soaking wet, through and through. After they got home together, Candy had her shower first, so Albert removed his wet shirt, waiting for …

The day her life changed (Part 3)

This picture, Illustrated by Yumiko Igarashi, was captured from Volume II of the old Candy Candy novel, the novelization of the manga version, published on 24/11/1978. This is the first page to introduce Chapter II of the old CC novel. The poem was written by the author of Candy Candy, Keiko Nagita (名木田 恵子), her official name being Kyoko Mizuki. (Thanks again to …
