About This DVD
Candy Candy is a Japanese novel, manga, and anime series. The main character, Candice "Candy" White is a blonde American girl with freckles, large emerald green eyes and long, curly hair, worn in eponymous pigtails with bows. Candy Candy first appeared in a prose novel by famed Japanese writer Kyoko Mizuki in April of 1975. When Mizuki joined forces with manga artist Yumiko Igarashi, the Japanese magazine Nakayoshi became interested in Candy Candy. For four years, Candy and her friends and enemies appeared in a manga series published by the magazine.
Candy Candy is primarily a love story. Candy's first love was a character named Anthony Brown, but the series is remembered by the majority of fans as a result of her heartbreaking separation from her true love and soulmate, Terrence "Terry" Grandchester (side note: Lord Grandchester - there is current a member of the British House of Lords, with the title). A recurrent story arc in the series is the "Prince of the Hill", a mysterious boy Candy met as a child and never saw again. His identity is revealed in the last pages of the manga and in the last chapters of the anime.
The author left the story open ended, but some fans think that there was some closure in the story, particularly with the Prince of the Hill story arc. Most, however, have waited for a proper closure to the story. However, even in the three novels by Kyoko Mizuki (the pen name of Keiko Nagita), there is no true closure to the story, other than Candy remains at her beloved Pony's Home, helping to care for the children. The manga and anime focused on the first two books.
