Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 6)

Before I continue talking about Rockstown, I’d like to share some links with you first. Many thanks to Evelyn, who sent me these links to articles about Yumiko Igarashi. She was the illustrator of Candy Candy manga version. I must say she’s very talented, and I truly admire her design of the characters in Candy Candy. Aren’t …

Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 5)

When writing Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Mizuki mainly used the epistolary format for the second half of Volume 2 and the epilogue (filled with many letters to and from Candy). Therefore, to better understand the story, we need to rely on our knowledge of the manga version unless it’s clearly written otherwise in CCFS. Together …

Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 4)

I was going to discuss another parallel between Daddy-Long-Legs and Candy Candy, but Reeka’s comment reminded me of something I had longed to bring up. It fits well into this series too, so here I go. 🙂 The following page is taken from the last volume of the Japanese manga version, which happened when Candy was seemingly …

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

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 …

Peculiar Relationship Epilogue

In Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), we know that Candy was still very much in love with her husband in her mid-thirties. When he came home to her in the evening, she jumped from her chair, running into his outstretched arms. Even though Mizuki didn’t write anything about Candy being a mother, I strongly believe …

Peculiar Relationship Chapter 10

I’ve been very quiet lately because I was writing two chapters in a row. Thank you all for your patience! For those who aren’t familiar with Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS) spoilers, please bear with me. I don’t want to repeat what Mizuki had already written in the epilogue, so this chapter begins near its …

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 …

Without their encouragement and brilliant comments, I wouldn’t have come this far. Please accept my deep gratitude!  ❤ ❤ ❤ I know I’ve taken a long …
