Sounds like a line straight from my ecchi loli shows.
Also, WMT thread.
Princess Sarah was the only WMT show I watched but I'm also fairly certain it was the best. Master race reporting.
Man, it's true that the reboot was a failure, wasn't it? What with people not liking Shoujo Cosette and Konnichiwa Anne.
What a shame. I'd like to see more of these rather than the endless LN adaptations we have.
Don't tarnish pure father/daughter relationship.
Don't remind me of the Usagi Drop's nightmare.
>mfw I remember the Lavinia's bitch was my fav character back then, because I could relate to her. I was an horrible child.
Speaking of Lavinia, there's a fanfiction sequel book where she becomes a young feminist who dreams of going to Oxford.
Wonder how this would fare in today's age.
Probably not so well since kids would more likely watch their happy-go-lucky 30-minute toy advertisement anime than sad things like this.
I missed that show
Ah, the good ol' days where the Japs weren't so insular with their anime like nowadays. The days where they're the ones being Westaboos.
I really hated it as a child. I really liked Mahou Shoujo Creamy a lote better.
However I started liking it as a teen.
You can't blame children for prefering happy stuff over drama. It takes a little bit of maturity (not much though) to apreciate sufferings.
That's what happens when your economy went down the shitter.
Yurop is sort of experimenting it nowadays. Nationalism and xenophobia are on the rise.
Well, I remember liking Nobody's Girl when I watched it back then. Though it was damn painful seeing Remi suffer like that.
Fuck Gaspar. I rarely raged over an antagonist being an asshole but fuck that guy.
Poor Remi never deserved any of this shit thrown at her.
And speaking of Nobody's Girl, kinda sad that it's often considered to be a bad WMT stories because it got cancelled and it was literally the last one before WMT went into a hiatus for 10 years. Being a genderbent of Nobody's Boy didn't help either (haven't watched that one. Don't think they aired it back then)
I've been meaning to watch Nobody's Boy Remi, I'll start downloading it now.
Not watching Daddy Long Legs
Reminds me of some dude not wanting to touch the show with a ten-foot pole because "Look at that moe character art for Cosette! They must be pandering to the pedophile otakus! I bet they're going to keep her as a little girl as long as possible! Fuck the new WMT!"
I have seen all WMT classics.
The series got stale and creativeless in the mid 90s. I guess they didn't get the same budget as in the 70s and 80s anymore.
Anne of Green Gables is maybe my favourite WMT anime.
Also blame that European channels don't invest in such anime anymore. Because everything Japan related got the ugly anime reputation.
>ugly anime reputation
Yeah. Anime has grown into its own thing since those days. A thing that's too weird for most people.
WMT is pretty much the most "western" anime out there. No wacky modern anime tropes. Just classic storytelling.
Yeah, I agree.
I mean, look at Galilei Donna for the most recent example. You thought it's just going to be about Europe? Well, too bad! We have to shoehorn in Japan for some reason!
Or Ashita no Nadja for an older, 2004 example. Let's bring some random kid samurai to Europe because little kids would be confused if they're all European.
Add Gosick while we're at it.
What the fuck
I want a remake of Little Lord Fauntleroy so I can get my shotalust from modernized Cedie.
Are you somehow implying toy advertisement cartoons didn't exist back then too?
>Daddy Long Legs
The best parts were Julia telling everyone right fucking off. I never expected her to develop so much.
That was my latest and seventh WMT completed if I remember correctly. Enjoyed it overall but it's from the jacking drama up to eleven era and from a sampling of four from those the only one I really liked was Peter Pan.
I love the Little Women novel I wish the first season of anime got subbed
There's the movie by Toei but it's quite different from the source material
Of course it did.
>I love the Little Women novel I wish the first season of anime got subbed
Oh, are you fucking kidding me?
Welp, guess I'll go watch Cosette instead. Hope it's good, since it's one of the new WMTs and all.
Licca has subbed Jo's Boys(the second season) but not the first season for some reason
But... but... I want the one with all the romance...
Jo's Boys is the one with Jo taking care of a bunch of children, right?
Well, it's kind of funny how many WMT anime aren't subbed.
Stuff wasn't really popular in the UK (or USA, lel) although generations of children in continental Europe and South America knows the anime.
Yeah and it's actually a sequel to a sequel of Little Women
It was hilarious how even 200 years ago, there were already shippers. Imagine 19th century girls bickering about their OTPs in their frilly dresses while drinking tea.
Licca is doing God's work but the DNR in their video is so awful.
And who won? The NTR fags.
I was shocked when I heard about Amy x Laurie.
Jo is the best girl
What a lewd lady.
and dat character developement.
Beth is fucking dead and nothing trumps that.
The sequel destroyed my 13-year-old self.
I fucking raged when she cut her ponytail.
One of the best tsundere out there.
Please, it still hurts.
Remi's sufferings are nothing compared to Nello and Patrache.
>the jacking drama up to eleven era
But somehow, WMT is one of those series where I really can feel for the protagonists. I feel hurt when they get hurt, I feel sad when they get sad, I feel happy when they get happy, etc...
While on other anime, I just want some suffering to come for the MC. Because suffering is delicious for character development reasons, of course.
For me, it has to do with the genuine innocence of the show, which you don't get with most seasonal stuff which aim at a very narrow demographic.
My favorite ones were the one with the Finn farmgirl, Heidi (when she was in the Alps) and Niels Olgersson (guess farm shit and flying with the gooses were cool as fuck for my young self).
Little woman too, but I was robbed from my OTP...
I hated hated hated Remi and the Treasure Island. Ugly artstyle even for that period.
It helps that most shows are based on real (youth) liteature on not on cheap LNs.
It's probably because a child suffering because of something that wasn't her fault yet still keeping the optimistic attitude is much more charming than some retarded high school drama. Also there's so much more that can happen in 50+ episodes than only one cour.
Remi is gorgeous to me and makes Nippon Animation series from the same period look quite muddy (was it Rascal that aired the same year?)
I have a feeling that Rascal and Tom Sawyer would be priority for Silver Zero Subs if and when they're done with everything else.
Not sure why they thought a gender bender version would be a great idea.
Shit killed the entire franchise.
Adults looked like terrifying monster in it.
What gender bender version ?
They went and offered themselves for a comparison to an Osamu Dezaki direction, that alone is a terrible move.
I knew some LN about some dude who went all edgy and shit because he got betrayed once. Then the LN was pretty much about the revenge porn of him getting back at those people.
It's just shameful how petty it was, really.
To be fair, it was pretty much dying at that point. The previous show also got cancelled midway through. That just sealed the deal.
I still love Nobody's Girl though.
Anyone got an image of the Nello's sketch? Wasn't that supposed to have been the winner?
God, so many WMT series to watch, so little time.
Sounds like a piss-poor Montecristo rip off.
It's an MMORPG.
Mamoru Oshii worked on that.
Don't worry, it's not like they're going to make more.
Pollyanna was one of my first loli. I fell in love with her at first sight.
Another thinly veiled flip thread?
When did /a/ get so classy and full of taste?
father x daughter best incest
It's an oldfag thread.
Those anime were broadcasted in Yurop too.
Why do you think /a/ likes lolis?
Oh wow, Episode 1 and we already start despairing.
And I love the next episode preview part where they comment on how horrible the times where Les Miserables was set on. A nice history lesson for kids, I suppose.
>implying kids care about history
Has anyone watched The Bush Baby? I like Hiromi Kato's character designs.
Cosette is so adorable in the Anime.
These were popular in Europe too
But I've been watching the subbed ones lately
And to think all of this could've been avoided if her mother just brought her along. I'm sure that mayor guy would be more than happy to take the two under his protection.
I fucking love Anne of Green Gables and Heidi
>watch Heidi's first episode
Fuck fuck I didn't want to fap today god damnit!
Come on man.
Lavinia best bully
Where do I start with them? One thing that's putting me off is that a lot seem to be translated from spanish or other european languages. The Anne of Green Gables BD release that's being worked on, for example.
Back then, such things aren't sexual at all, anon.
It is, they just pretended it wasn't because kids wouldn't consider sexual or anyone not into lolis for that matter.
Wow, I thought the black-haired one was Homura for a second.
And the blonde one kinda looks like Regina.
I saw someone watching Remi, but does anyone know the sequel Nobody's Girl? it's also WMR and i redownloaded it recently to watch, turns out it's just as good as I remember it, and fucking sad as hell
this thread makes me happy power utorrou
But Heidi has no sex appeal at all, anon. Just look at that character design.
Short haired lolis are sexy.
Remi but with a loli instead? OH GOD PICKED THE FUCK UP.
Take your time to read the thread.
The good old classics.
I wish there would be a group which would rip the BD releases.
>the moment you realize there are even doujinshi for Heidi or Anne on exhentai.
Truly the scum of earth.
My waifu is Pollyanna.
>not fapping to both
Here's what you deserve.
I'm watching Romeo no Aoi Sora at the moment. Shit is depressing as fuck. There's all these optimistic overtones but it's hard to make a good thing out of basically being sold off to be a chimney sweeper. Every time I see the dude's pet I feel sad as hell. It's like no amount of Disneyfication can ease the SUFFERING.
She really couldn't have though. No place would take on a single mother with a child. A lot of places wouldn't have allowed children.
Its going to get worse but these characters manage to stick through it. Its close to my favorite beside Sara.
Not unusual. Anne of Green Gables has scenes where Anne strips down to her bloomers in order to change clothes.
Wasn't there a scene where she's naked in the bathtub too?
There's shota dick in Katri but those were always a free game.
Wait really? I didn't remember that scene?
Who the fuck didn't like Anne? Cosette was shit though
Well, there are shows with full nude scenes.
Story of the Alps: My Annette I think...
