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. 😉 …

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 …

Prince on the Hill

Even though Yumiko Igarashi has made some minor mistakes when drawing Prince on the Hill in the manga (as mentioned in Love Triangle (Part 8)), I must say she did an excellent job overall. It was very convincing to us manga readers that the mysterious but nice guy was very handsome. Not only little Candy …

A memorable embrace

Have any of you watched the movie, The Time Traveler’s Wife? I enjoyed watching it, and it actually brought tears to my eyes at some points. Anyway, (SPOILER ALERT) near the end of the movie, the main heroine was told that her husband had returned, and he was waiting for her. She immediately ran across the …

Wildflowers on the way to Lakewood

According to Candy’s last letter to Albert In the epilogue of Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Albert took Candy to Lakewood for a day trip (considering that he had to pick her up from Pony’s Home and then drive her back). This is what Candy wrote in her letter to Albert after the trip (from spoilers): It was a …
