did not like it
bookshelves: reviewed
Read in January, 2003

I watched the cartoon in 1999 on TV. Then I read the comic book in about 2003 -- curious whether the written version was much better or the opposite.

I can say that Candy Candy is NOT a children book. It is a love story between Candy and Antony. They even got married, didn't they? Please correct me if I am wrong.

I can't say no more. I DID like the moving pictures in the cartoon movie, I can't deny. However, it is hard to say that I DO still like it because of a certain reason that is very unreasonable. I don't like Candy Candy anymore just because it was made into a sinetron...

Hope it enlightens :-)

Dini Hi, Keani. No, they didn't get married. But the books tell the story of Candy until she grows up and there's a lot of adult themes, so yeah, I think it's not for children. Kalo sinetronnya sih jangan ditanya, itu mah kacau ;P

Rike Jokanan oh, God... I am not a good television spectator then. frankly i also didn't finish those 9 books of Candy Candy :p

yeah, maybe I will have to re-read it to give a space to my mind to be less judgemental.

Thanks for the comment, anyway, Dini :-)

Dini Anytime... btw Keani, sodaraan ama mas Keanu ya? Hehehe.

Rike Jokanan Keanu Reeves? itu mantan saya he he he...

Nozomi My mother read this in her preteens when she was as it started in 1975. So did all her friends. I think the standards of what children watch/read are different compared to now. I go through all her old manga and find some with older themes.

The manga was definately better than the cartoon. I wasn't able to watch much, but not only is the drawing/animation inferior to the manga, it's sugar-coated and changed. My mother agrees.

And no, Candy does not marry Anthony. Sadly.
