Love grew into romance

There’s a book called “My Heart Can’t Tell You No” by M.K. Heffner, in which it talks about a boy who used to love a girl like a little sister. When she grew into a teen beauty, their love grew into romance. I haven’t read the book myself, but I suppose the word “love” refers to the broader sense of love, …

I’ve always wanted to color some of my favorite scenes in the manga version of Candy Candy, and Page 147 of Volume 8 is my number one favorite. When I first read this page, it struck me that perhaps Albert wanted to kiss Candy! (Albert should be wearing a black shirt, but for some reason in …

Both of us think that the lyrics matched the relationship of Albert and Candy in Candy Candy very well: The official music video is The lyrics are: Do you hear me, I’m talking to you Across the water across the deep blue ocean …

Love Triangle (Part 3)

As mentioned in my previous post, Part 2 in this series, that in Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Candy told Terry (writing a letter to him but not planning to send it) that she had got over him. Read that post to see what I have said about that letter. For example, the following manga …

Waterfall Scene

In Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), what happened near the waterfall (Volume 1, pages 141-149 with the subheading “Waterfall Scene”) is different from that in the manga or anime. In the anime, Candy left Albert not long after she came to, but in the manga, she stayed with him in the mountain lodge for the night, …

Matching Pajamas

While I was working on my latest drawing, I browsed the internet for some ideas of men’s and women’s pajamas, and I happened to find this interesting page about matching pajamas, showing couples or families wearing identical pajamas. They looked so cute that they reminded me of a scene in the manga, where Albert and Candy were wearing matching pajamas. (Note that …

Candy Candy Ending Song

Here I attach the link to the Ending Song of the anime series of Candy Candy “I love tomorrow” (I would have used “I like tomorrow” instead, but never mind 😛 ). The lyrics were written by the author of Candy Candy, Kyoko Mizuki (her other pen name 名木田 恵子): Back then, Mizuki used “Anohito” to …

Albert the Prince Charming

I’m finally done modifying my old drawing of Albert the Prince Charming. It’s an original story I wrote more than a year ago (oh boy, how time flies!!) borrowing the characters from Candy Candy. For your interest, you can find the story in http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8792556/1/My-Prince-Charming If you prefer Spanish, my friends have kindly translated the above …

Would you marry someone…?

I read this tweet on Twitter few days back (not exact wording but very close): “Would you marry someone whom you have hardly spent any time with?” The first thing that came to my head was the frail relationship between Terry and Candy in Candy Candy. Granted, both of them had dreamt of their future …
