Anyone remember this?


"Lady Georgie" is a kind of anime that grows on you. The more I think about it, the more I like it.

Unfortuntely, few remember it.

Yeah, Anette and "Loschen" were from the anime called "Die Kinder von Berghof". I never checked what was the original title of that show. It was all OK, but a little bit overly dramatic soap opera.

I heard of Sophie and Virginie, but I don't recall what it was about anymore. Any info on that?

Lady Georgie has a special place in my heart. Her German voice was Sabine Bohlmann, and it was magic! It was the best synchronisation she ever made! The first episode...man, I'm not sure anymore what it was about. I think it was when Abel and Arthur's father saved Georgie as a baby, but I'm not sure. The best part of the story was when they became teenagers and discovered the problems of adolescence. I could really relate to that.

Yes, Mrs. Butmen ( mom ) never really liked Georgie because she was not her real daughter. And when she saw that Abel and Arthur fell in love with her and started fighting each other, she started hating her although Georgie was totally oblivious to what's going on. Sometimes it was almost painful watching how mrs. Butmen was agressive towards Georgie, a symbol of an innocent girl.

The sequence where Arthur sawed Georgie from drowning in the river and keeped her warm with his body in the bed was surprisingly not censored on German TV. Georgie was shown naked ( well, at least from the top of her body ) in that scene ( I can't imagine that being aired on US TV at noon ). Pretty mature stuff, and I found it to be sad, romantic and touching.

The part where Georgie dressed as a boy to go to England was a little bit overstretched and unconvincing, but worked in the end. Her second meeting with duke Lowel was also very powerful and emotional. The writters and directors of this romance where really nailing it perfectly! If you go to the site wunschliste.de ( under animation ) you can find that Georgie is the third animated series sorted by votes to be aired again on TV as soon as possible ( but nobody is listening to us people! ).


Apparently a DVD of Georgie is planed to be released in Germany. I hope it works. Maybe I will even buy it then.

And yes, I also saw "Eine frohliche Familie". It was pretty good, but not nearly as powerful as Lady Georgie.

Yes, i remember it well!!! i was a little girl when i used to watch it, and it was my favourite anime. It's simply amazing because it's like a cartoon-soap opera. I also remember well the so-called censured scenes (available on youtube).
