For those who at least in the last ten years had never looked at Italy 1 in the morning, here's the plot: Anne Shirley is a girl lively and full of fantasy that she had, even if he is only eleven years old, a difficult life, having lost first his parents, two teachers, and then two times with the families who had taken care of her, and ending, finally, in the orphanage, but life seems to give her a new hope when Marilla and Matthew, two elderly brothers who live together in the farm of Green Gables, decide to adopt a boy to help Matthew on the farm. For a misunderstanding, the orphanage, by mrs. Spencer, send Anna. The character of Anna enchants now, Matthew, and ends up conquering the severe and inflexible Marilla, convinces her to keep her in the house and to give her an education.

Igarashi decided to translate the novel, the original three-volume was, and managed to bring on paper all of the highlights of the original work, but obviously not being able to linger much on any of them. The pace in fact it is quite fast and makes the reading very enjoyable, even if at the cost of a low psychological investigation of the characters and, especially, the protagonist, who still manages to convey all of its joy and its strangeness, making it very friendly from the beginning to the reader.

We are therefore very far away from adaptations, most recently, the series of Netflix, Call me Anna, which shows the dark side of the character of the protagonist, the result of negative experiences and abuse that he suffered.

Instead, it is more close to the very famous TV series Anne of Red Hair, the animated series part of the project World Masterpiece Theater (Sekai Meisaku Gekijo) of the Nippon Animation, Isao Takahata wrote the screenplay and directed. It is also to keep in mind that the work is only one of the many reinterpretations of fairy tales and novels for children made by Igarashi in the course of the years, like snow white, Cinderella, sleeping beauty, Thumbelina, The little match girl, The little mermaid, but also, Heidi, The little Lord, Alice in Wonderland, The blue bird and, of course, Anna dai capelli rossi. Evident, therefore, that the intent is to entice you to read the original novel more that give a complete view of the work.

In any case, the characters are well-characterized, even if the charadesign may perhaps turn up a few times, the nose who is now addicted to the anime series.

This is where the manga comes off completely from the anime, the rest is from the point of view chart: you have to remember that Yumiko Igarashi belongs to the Flowers of the year 24 (“The group of flowers of the year 24” in japanese), which brings together the authors born around the year 1949 – the year 24 of the Showa era –, among which we can also Waki Yamato (A trendy girl/Mademoiselle Anne – Star Comics) and Riyoko Ikeda (Lady Oscar – Goen). The stretch is the classic style, the shojo of that generation, with male characters ephebic (Gilbert Blythe is the copy with the shorter hair of Lowell J. Gray, Lady Georgie), and simple lines, characteristic of the Igarashi attention to the details in the tables. The designs do not scream to the miracle, but they are still good, especially if compared with the works of the sensei of the following years...

From the point of view of the edition, we have a classcio volume was in the Manga without the extras and with a format column of the usual size.
