In this classic story, Anne is an orphan who comes to live with Marilla and Matthew. She has an overactive imagination and a talent for getting into mischief, but she is delighted with her new home at Green Gables.
Condensing such a complex and deep story into manga form works very well here, and the plot closely follows the original story. Even the dialogue is almost always exactly the same as the book.
I loved the artwork so much! Beautiful panels in every chapter that draw you into the story. The artwork brings a lot of emotion into the story, and firmly connects the reader to the characters. Seeing the expressions on character’s faces as they experience joy, grief, fear, sadness, or relief, made me feel those things too as I was reading!
Every character is exactly like I always imagined while reading the original book. Anne is full of joy and playfulness. Her imagination shines through her eyes when she is caught up in a beautiful dream world of her own. Marilla is the perfect balance of stern and practical strictness, but with a soft heart of gold. I was enchanted with Diana and Gilbert and the whole gang!
What a delight to revisit this beloved classic in manga form!
