Candy Candy (TV)
Go back to Candy Candy main page
Candy Candy was inspired by the Canadian novel called "Anne of Green Gables" written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Kyoko Misuki, Candy Candy's writer, read this novel when she was only 10 years-old. Anne Of Green Gables was very popular in the 80's thanks for a tv show that was transmited in many countries. The story is about an orphan girl named Anne Shirley, and both stories have some coincidences in common.
In the early 1990s, the Candy Candy franchise was in turmoil, as co-creators Kyoko Mizuki and Yumiko Igarashi, along with Toei Co. Ltd., battled over the legal ownership of the title. Igarashi was producing Candy Candy material without the consent of Mizuki or Toei. In 1998, Mizuki brought her case to a Tokyo district court to prove that she has equal rights of ownership of the Candy Candy title. As a result, the anime has not been broadcast in any country since that year. Mizuki was eventually awarded Y29,500,000 as compensation for the emotional stress she endured.
