Old drawing from last Christmas

Hello there, how’s everyone doing? Some people asked me why I only drew Candy by herself this Christmas. The truth is, I don’t have much spare time. However, I do plan to draw Candy and Albert early next year, hopefully before the Valentine’s Day. I will see… I can’t promise anything yet. 😉 Those who …

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 …

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. 😉 …

They found love…

Thank you all for your enthusiastic feedback regarding my recent posts. 🙂 While writing my reply to Evelyn, the song “Thinking out loud” by Ed Sheeran appeared in my mind. Both Evelyn and Reeka liked this song and encouraged me to post it for others to enjoy: When your legs don’t work like they used to before And I …

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 …

Conflicting Emotions (Part 1)

A while ago, a friend gave me the link to a special post of a Japanese blog, in which it shows some famous artworks of the manga artist, Yumiko Igarashi, in her art museum (いがらしゆみこ美術館). For those who haven’t heard of her, she was the illustrator of the manga version of Candy Candy. I was told that …

A hug so tight

Ever heard of the following quote? “One day someone is going to hug you so tight that all your broken pieces will stick back together.” — Unknown I think that’s what happened to Candy as described in her letter to Albert in the epilogue of Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS). I have already explained in my …

“Dear Enemy” by Jean Webster

Warning: this post contains spoilers to “Dear Enemy”, the sequel to “Daddy-Long-Legs” by the same author. I finally finished reading the book. Initially, I didn’t like it as much as I like its prequel, but after reading about one-third, I must say I started enjoying the voice of Sallie McBride, the best friend of Judy Abbott from “Daddy-Long-Legs”. …

Second farewell

Just recently, I came across a long article that blamed Albert for depriving Candy of seeing Terry when the actor had been feeling regretful and numbing himself with drinks. I believe many Candy Candy fans who had only watched the anime version probably have similar opinions, which is a pity. I really don’t understand why the anime adaptation has replaced the Rockstown episode in the …
