Overwhelmed with emotions (Part 3)

Lately, as you probably have guessed, I’m tied up with real-life obligations. I can’t afford to update as often as I like, nor do I reply to your comments in a short time (but I’ll try my best to do so within a day or two). Anyway, I miss you guys, and here I am, writing a new post. 😀 …

Overwhelmed with emotions (Part 2)

In Candy Candy manga, the readers can tell that the three Ardlay boys, Anthony, Archie and Alistair (Stear), had all fallen for the orphan girl, Candy, even though none of them had ever kissed her on the lips. Only Anthony had given Candy a peck on the cheek, and neither Stear nor Archie had ever got to that …

To truly love someone…

Remember in Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 5) I talked about Candy receiving a parcel from Albert (page 95 of manga volume 9)? On page 96, Candy opened the package and found a brief note inside from Albert: キャンディ 一足先に春のプレゼント どこにいても君のことを想っている…… アルバート Candy A present for Spring in advance Thinking about you wherever I …

Old Candy Candy Novel

Remember this manga scene that I colored long time ago? 🙂 I decided to add it to an album on my Facebook page, and I really enjoyed reading all your comments. Thank you, ladies! Glad you like this particular scene as much as I do. ❤ Yet, I didn’t know there’s something special about this …

First dance

Most of you know that my dear friend, QuevivaCandy, is translating my short story Peculiar Relationship to Relación Peculiar for me. For this story, I’ve drawn Candy alone and then Albert by himself, so I figured it was time to draw them together. I had several scenes in my mind, but I was reluctant to draw another scene in the …

A matter of timing

I’ve been very busy lately, and I don’t have much time to write Part 8, and yet this post is meant to be a supplement to Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 7), in which I showed you Candy’s near outburst after discovering Albert’s true identity in Lakewood. Judging from Candy’s retrospection, I believe she was at a …

Candy and Prince on the Hill (Part 7)

Thanks again to my friend, the admin of the Facebook page, William Albert Andrew (el príncipe de la colina), for providing another idea. One of its photo albums showed this picture from the Artbook produced by Kyoko Mizuki & Yumiko Igarashi and published by Kodansha/Nakayoshi in 1978. I believe the poem was written by Mizuki, titled “Dear Prince”, and it was …

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 …
