More than words (Part 2)

Thanks to Agnès for reminding me of this manga scene in Volume 6, p. 57: Terry was doing well in Broadway (a rising star in the show business), and assuming Candy was still in London, he was worried because of the great war. He regretted leaving her behind. With nostalgia, he remembered their happy moments back at St. …

More than words (Part 1)

If someone tells you the following: When children cry, they often seek their parents for comfort. Now, you see a lady crying, and she seeks a man for comfort. As he pulls her into his loving arms, will you assume the man is her father? Common sense tells you this is not necessarily true. 😉 …

The person I love…

I’ve been preoccupied lately, so thanks for your patience! I’m actually in the middle of writing one long post, but in the meantime, this is to clarify things because my recent posts have caused some confusions.

They found love…

Thank you all for your enthusiastic feedback regarding my recent posts. 🙂 While writing my reply to Evelyn, the song “Thinking out loud” by Ed Sheeran appeared in my mind. Both Evelyn and Reeka liked this song and encouraged me to post it for others to enjoy: When your legs don’t work like they used to before And I …

Optimistic protagonist

Many thanks to dear Antlay for her valuable input. 😀 She sent me this screenshot of a comment regarding Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) from a Candy Candy fan. It was written in Spanish, and my dear friend QuevivaCandy has kindly translated this for me. I’ve attempted to paraphrase the translation a bit using my interpretation: …

A love declaration

As promised in Expressions of love, I’ll compare how Candy expressed her feelings towards three important men in her life, in the manga and/or Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS). Candy’s first crush was Prince on the Hill, and because Anthony had a shocking resemblance to her mysterious prince, Candy fell in love at first sight with Anthony. In …

Expressions of love

There are various ways to express love in Japanese. The direct translation of “I love you” is aishite-imasu (愛しています) or aishite-ru (愛してる), but according to How to Say ‘I love you’ in Japanese, Japanese people hardly use this strong expression unlike the westerners, mainly because of cultural differences. In fact, don’t be surprised if some say they have never …

Her happiness

When Terry decided to leave England, he left a note for Candy as shown in the manga here. He addressed her as someone considerate or thoughtful (心ある), telling her he quit school and headed to America for his dream. Before he ended, he wished her happiness. Literally, he said, “Wherever I am, I pray for your …

Kono, Sono and Ano

I’ve been quite preoccupied lately that I can’t afford to update as frequently as I wish or respond to your comments promptly. Thank you all for your understanding! I’ll do my best to keep my blog interesting. 😀 As mentioned before, my friend has kindly bought me Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) as her present. The novel is divided …
