    I also watched this as a child, and I also have the book! It was my favourite in early childhood, along with Candy Candy!



    Candy Candy is also made after a novel and it's about the adventures of an American girl who travels to England. I rewatched the whole series a couple of years ago, in 2010, I think, from youtube, original Japanese with English subtitles.

    Well, I appreciate good things from other cultures as well, for example from the Japanese one. These old anime had something nice about them... I also watched Sailor Moon and more recently Inuyasha, but stopped at some point. Better things to do now.

    However, there still are Japanese animations worth watching. For example, I recently watched the animated film The Wind Rises, about the second world war, and it was really nice, I liked it!



    I have some deep respect for the Japanese culture, which of course doesn't make me forget I'm of Daco-Germanic descent myself.

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Willo the Wisp. I really loved it when I was a kid.

    (It doesn't matter how old the song is, I won't stop liking it).

    Dawie die Kabouter - Episode 1 (Afrikaans) (1/2)


    Almost prophetic intro to this series complete with H-Bomb.

    My Mom is fond of telling the story of her and myself that sat crying together when Dawie died at the end of the series, I think I was 4 years old.

    As for anime/manga, no matter what the content, the drawing style is an absolute abomination and more so because it's become a lifeless cookie-cutter style that's spread like a virus across continents.

    I see young talented artists embrace this style fully or partially, maiming their potential. I see artists drawing a perfect classical body and then add a face/head in manga style, seemingly for no other reason than that style's popularity.

    God, I hope this trend dies soon. *grumble, grumble*

    I know little about art in general but I've been collecting US comics (Marvel, DC etc..) for the past half a century and there are some artists who have very distinctive styles.

    It became noticeable, sometime during the 1990's, that Manga was beginning to have a significant influence on new artists but I (wrongly) thought it was just a fad.

    I'm not a great fan, personally. It may work for some characters but it completely destroys others, such as a short 'Thor' series I recall reading which made the Asgardian gods look quite ridiculous!

    I haven't physically collected comics, but I have been reading them online and I agree. There are some artists who are simply phenomenal, but the story/pacing/writing often does them a disservice.

    I recently tuned into Batman and the Justice League (manga). Batman/Bruce and Gordon are a good match, but Joker and Superman are just off. There's also Gotham Knight (anime) in which most of the shorts were subpar in drawing and animation (I'll have to concede to Skärmträl's above observations), excepting Field Test and Deadshot. Batman Ninja is by far the best anime representation of Batman I think.
