Anne of Green Gables (Red-haired Anne)

Anne of Green Gables (Red-haired Anne)
(赤毛のアン, Akage no An, 1979)

I wasn't able to obtain copies of this series :(
Anyone here able to help? I want DVD copies only.

Based on the classic novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery.Anne is an orphan full of imagination. When she arrives at her new home she’ll understand that, sometimes, you’ve to be a sensible person too, but her unique character will change, or at least attract the people around her. The story covers Anne’s growth from about eleven to seventeen years old, while she makes friends, goes to school and studies to fulfil her dream. At a difficult point in her life, Anne will have to take a hard choice, but at the end she’ll be able to find a new dream.
Born of the pen of the Canadian writer L.M. Montgomery, the little red-haired orphan comes to life in this anime, based on the first book in the long Anne series. Nobody has ever wanted her in her long and lonely 11-year-old life... until this dream comes true and she is going to have a wonderful home in Green Gables on Prince Edward Island with Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert. But all turns too good to be true - it was just a mistake; the Cuthberts have "ordered a boy" from the orphanage and have no need for a girl. And yet, soon Marilla and Matthew discover that they cannot live without this lively imaginative chatterbox. Green Gables becomes her home; Diana - the best "bosom friend" any girl ever dreamed of; Gilbert - the hated but never-despairing boy in love... Friends, dreams and school, scrapes and funny accidents, laughter and tears, tragedies and achievements - fill Anne's life as she goes on her road of growing up.

sure, these types of classic themed animes would easily translate to the USA, it always puzzled me why more of these masterpiece classics were never released much outside of Japan... they are so universal

I loved the movies when i was younger and the early books... didn't like the last few books with her kids though, they kinda irritated me, lol

Ever seen avonlea? same setting and author, great series!

Yes they should, because lots of people know them!

Yes, it was rather irritating and somewhat tiring (sometimes) to read after Anne got married.

Never seen Avonlea, But I've heard about it. I can't access it here though. I'd try to sometime, if it's possible.

Hi, Welcome!

Welcome. I'm a techie, a fangirl, and an aspiring government employee, lol.

I have a tendency to attempt a little of everything, whether or not I have time for it. I'm a jack of all trades who is an expert at none... but that's okay - I like to learn ^_^

I do not take credit for the creation/distribution of what i'm sharing here. I'm only collecting them in order to share with others who are also interested. Plus it is also a good way to keep track of what I love.

However, the stuff scanned by me I ask that there be no redistribution outside of my journal.

I welcome new LJ friends, but please allow me some time to get to know you before I friend you back.
