With love and gratitude (Part 4)

So Candy wrote to Albert in a letter that “I am — very grateful to my parents who have abandoned me at the Pony’s Home. Thanks to that, I could meet you!” As mentioned in Part 1, in the old Candy Candy novel, Candy had ended her last letter to Albert “with love”, but in Candy Candy …

Her final letter was written in her mind to Anthony (in Heaven?). Right after that, Candy was abruptly …

With love and gratitude (Part 1)

In my previous post, “True Love and Obstacles”, I mentioned that in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Candy wrote to Albert that she asked him to keep her precious diary (filled with her own words about her deep feelings for Terry back in London) for her and even told him that she was happy by saying, “yes, …

True Love and Obstacles

While writing my long story “Love Never Fails”, I came across the following article, which really touched my heart.

Candy’s first letter to Prince on the Hill

The way Albert revealed himself as Prince on the Hill was very different in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS). Personally, I like the one in the manga version much more. If I have time in the near future, I will explain my preference by comparing them. This time, I will only focus on the one …

Candy’s memory of Prince on the Hill

Recently, I have some interesting discussions with one of my readers pertaining to my earlier post http://mspuddleshaven.com/2013/07/18/age-difference-between-candy-and-albert/ Her insights have inspired me to write this. We agreed that Albert had changed both his look and body build during his adolescence. For example, here is a link that contains photos from various life stages of Prince William …

He mentioned that being seventeen, he still had had no freedom. Not only that, many things had been done in his name without his knowledge, etc. So …

The same anguish

When I first read the manga, I thought fox hunting must be a social event organized by the Ardlay’s family which happened regularly (say yearly) because even the young characters (Archie, Stear, and Anthony) appeared quite familiar about what to expect. After all, fox hunting was a sport that originated in the United Kingdom in the …

Marvelous feeling of security

In Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Candy recalled the time when Albert had been amnesiac. She had been fired by the hospital because they had been living together. She didn’t regret that at all, and she said (from spoilers), “Albert … I didn’t even know his full name at that time. Albert was just Albert. …

Sharing half of a sandwich

In the manga, the scene where Albert bought only one sandwich and offered to share half of it with Candy is one of the most touching scenes to me. This scene is also in the anime adaptation and Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS). I have mentioned in my previous post that when Albert recovered his memory …
