Dumping this shit because it's cute as fuck.
Once again, the Japs take liberty with Sara's characterization.
It's okay though. It's not like we don't do the same
Apparently, this got translated to French. Guess they really are a country of weebs
The father looks too young, like he's in his twenties.
And that's it. Gotta pay for the full book.
Bonus. Light novel edition.
This is apparently illustrated by a LN illustrator. And not just any LN illustrator. Her most popular works are the new and trendy "reincarnated into another world" LNs. Shit's pretty popular too, judging by the threads on 2ch and the fanarts on Pixiv.
What a waste of talent.
Minchin looks like a joke, Lavinia looks like the bully character from Emily of New Moon, and Ermengarde looks more pathetic than ever.
The expression of Sara's face is good though.
I'm not sure if that headcap thing (bonnet?) is still popular in the 1880s. I know by the time Anne of Green Gables is written, it's already something only grandmas wear.
Might as well use this to post more cute literary animu girls.
This one's Little House on The Prairie. The father looks too jolly here.
Same illustrator as the above by the way
Wonder if they kept that part where Laura plays with a balloon made out a pig's intestine.
This one's Pollyanna. She looks older than her WMT counterpart.
The more I think about it, the Pollyanna here is basically a blonde, prettier Anne
Miss Polly is less pretty here compared to the anime. That Ghibli character designer did a great job on showing how pretty she is, from her little girl self, her young adult self where she still lets her beautiful hair down, to when Pollyanna gives her a makeover.
From a bright young girl to a grumpy old woman, just because her dear oneesan died.
And she didn't get her happy ending in the end.
This Little Women manga isn't so cute.
What are you doing there, Laurie?
I wish they had adapted the rest of the Anne books. I want to see the character design for Anne's kids.
This one is when she's at college. The other girls are her friends there.
I can't get used to this Gilbert's character design. The WMT one is just so perfect.
Here, Diana doesn't look chubby, unlike the anime where you can clearly see that Anne is thinner.
I think they based her off that live-action adaptation.
I like how they draw the flowers here. I have no idea how they look when I read the book.
I never imagined Dickon to be chubby
As for Colin, eeh, I don't have a particular idea on how he should look.
I love how Kemono no Souja is there. Totally a kid's book guys. Totally.
Apparently, the Secret Garden is so long they have to divide it into a trilogy.
That's Colin's mother and father, I assume. Man, the father looks too scary there.
And now we have a map of good ol' Murica, for some reason.
This is the point where Colin becomes the main character.
Wow, that character design is too modern.
That fucking picture of Beth in the corner. Black and white pictures usually mean the one in the picture is already dead but considering the age, for all we know it's just a normal picture.
That ponytail look is totally popularized by the anime.
Reminds me to buy it eventually.
I saw the anime for that when I was younger.
(I still can't believe they would show that to kids in France, that was fucking depressing and rage inducing as far as I remember, and that's not even the worst one)
>that's not even the worst one
Oh, you mean Remi?
Really though, Sara the anime is quite popular in France. The Youtube video for the French OP has over a million views.
Only we Murricans know Sara more from that questionable movie adaptation or straight from the book if you're a literature nerd.
Huh, they're still selling the non-animu illustrated book.
I mean this Alice.
I want this Alice to suck my dick.
I also recall Tom Sawyer was kinda like that, but maybe it's because I mixed both shows.
There was apparently far worse, like a show called Clementine were a girl ends up losing the control of her legs because of a demon who caused her to have an accident. And the demon is apparently a huge pedophile if you consider what he says to her.
No clue if that one was a purely french show or a collaboration with Japan as there were quite a few shows like those.
Understandable, anime and manga is not popular among all japanese peoples, so the old version is still up.
>There was apparently far worse, like a show called Clementine were a girl ends up losing the control of her legs because of a demon who caused her to have an accident. And the demon is apparently a huge pedophile if you consider what he says to her.
Not sure if I want to Google it or not.
>I also recall Tom Sawyer was kinda like that, but maybe it's because I mixed both shows.
Yeah, you got that wrong. Tom Sawyer is happy exciting boys adventure.
You probably thought of the sequel, Huckleberry Finn. There's that fucking asshole of a dad haggling Huck for his treasure money. God, I still hate that guy to this day.
>Understandable, anime and manga is not popular among all japanese peoples, so the old version is still up.
Kids will probably prefer the animu version though since they're cuter.
>went to Pixiv
>find some guy making fanarts of obscure books and fairy tales
Pic related is Day Boy and Night Girl by George McDonald. Used to be a pretty popular fairy tale writer back in the day, to the point that Tolkien got inspiration from his work, but now no one remembers him.
Guy also wrote some other fairy tales with moe potential like the Light Princess or The Princess and The Goblin
And the guy also made some Greek mythology fanarts too.
Well too bad for you, I just searched it.
>Clémentine (pronounced [klemɑ̃tin]) was a 1985 French animated television series (in co-production with Japan).
>The series consisted of 39 episodes which featured the fantastic adventures of a 10-year-old girl (Clémentine Dumat) who uses a wheelchair.
The show fell into oblivion among the english countries, especially in the U.S were it was not broadcast but made into two movies.
You will never get rewarded for your heroism by being kissed in the mouth by a 7-year old loli princess
So, how many kids get confused that this doesn't have the same storyline as Frozen?
I love how they design the goblins' monsters grotesquely like in the book but they still look cute
Well it's the story of a girl who copes with her disability by rejecting the real world and living in a fantastical land where at least one death happens in each episode.
Also in one episode she apparently marries Tutankhamun before committing suicide.
>Also in one episode she apparently marries Tutankhamun before committing suicide.
That's only because she needs to travel to the land of the dead. Not out of depression or something.
