Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it. All of WMT's series are great in their own way, but they all share an equal visual and musical splendour.
>Is it at least historically accurate?
Very, accuracy was a goal of theirs. The rural population being introduced to new technologies such as the light bulb is a common occurrence. There's a bit of then-topical politics and some displays of landmarks that are seen as pivotal today. The adult cast's histories are recalled and it paints an accurate picture of where Eastern Canadians came from before settling.
In the case of Anne, the team took a lengthy trip to PEI and scouted out locations, read the history of the area, and basically built their iteration of the story in a real-world location. The houses that appear in the anime are real century homes that are still standing today. The entire story of Anne Of Green Gables is demonstrated in the show, but instead of spreading a relatively short book series over 50~ episodes, the team heard of historical accounts from residents and also talked to children to get a sense of what life was like there. This way they were able to tell the book as it happened, but in between events taken from the novel things that real people from that time period did were turned in to episodes that build character and set the scene for what life was like back then. There's rarely a hint of budget pinching and the whole thing has a classical anime aesthetic. The characters besides the main cast are all interesting with their own personalities and it's neat to see them growing up over time. It might very well be the original CGDCT series. They did all the same for Heidi too, which is another essential Wizard read/watch.
It's very wizard-friendly. Mathew is depicting as a true Archmage and is looked up to by all. It deals a lot with succubi's weird succubus emotional problems but the characters are likeable so it's not a pain to hear about their day. There's no promiscuity or virgin-shaming and everyone is White and racist against Italians. Modern adaptions of the book such as that nasty live action Netflix thing try to bend the story in to one of "succubi's suffrage", whoredom, and mean people being mean, but the anime (and the book for that matter) is the opposite.
That sounds so awesome, I'm gonna have to check it out.
If Trapp ( :) ) Family Story tells anything, it sure is.
Which version should I watch?
There's the version on YouTube and there's the kissanime colored subs.
Which one is better or more accurate?
That's good to know, I'm a few episodes in and I already love it.
Matthew Cuthbert running after the carriage in episode 3 made me tear up a little bit.
Is the prequel series where is Anne is a little kid any good?
The English dub is so cheesy
I watched the Netflix adaptation,the 1st season is quite good, Anne is likeable and I identify with the bullying and the maladaptive daydreaming but it's all downhill starting from mid S2, Anne starts being very likeable on S1 and turns into a radical feminist on mid S2, and S3 she's basically a completely different person, even publishing a manifesto and some weird "feminity ritual" that makes zero sense, and she somehow seduces Gilbert at the end after basically treating him like trash for 2 entire seasons.
And they added gays, blacks and american natives for absolutely no reason.
Been watching the anime these days, it's great.
I'm reading the manga adaptation of Green Gables, it's so cute.
Don't ever see dubbed anime you dingus, I thought this was common sense.
Been watching it after finishing the original this week, yeah the prequel it's pretty good too, the tone is very different though, it's probably the closest thing to a yotsubato anime we'll get (if yotsuba was surrounded by horrible people that treats her like a servant though).
Something I didn't like are the continuity errors, while the studio that made this prequel is the exact same that made the 1979 anime there are quite a lot of continuity errors, episode 3 of the prequel contradicts a lot of things older anne tells Marilla on the original, that's s bit disappointing to be honest.
What kind of contradictions?>tfw we never got a sequel series, or even OVAs of the other books
1979 Anne tells Marilla that she never saw the "little yellow house" of her parents even though she imagined lots of times, little Anne from the prequel somehow finds that yellow little house on the 3rd episode basically killing continuity.
There are other bits here and there, on the other hand the prequel is based on a "authorized prequel" released on 2008 so it was never fully canon to begin with, and that's a shame because except for the few errors the prequel is pretty fucking good and I recommend it to everyone who enjoyed the original anime.
This show succeeded in making me want to know what happens in the other books. For an adaptation, it did a wonderful job!
>>35546>They turned Anne into another whiny feminist brat>She publishes her own Communist manifesto>femininity ritual wtf>gays, blacks and Natives in late 1800s Canada like its modern day Canada, especially in a story that had none of those things in any way before
The book is amazing too. Watched the first episode of the anime and It is 100% accurate.
Might give the audio book a listen.
I always assumed it would be like the extremely boring books my mom would rave about reading as a kid so I ignored it.
The netflix show was made by succubi, they even bragged about how all the staff were succubi, so it's no surprise why it turned out as feminist propaganda with a touch of niggers and gays.
I watched the first five episodes, and I hate how they changed so much from the book.
