Reviews for Candy Candy Anime Movie 03 Dec 2006 17:28:36
Video: Rating of 5.0 out of 0 Audio: Rating of 5.0 out of 0 Subtitles: Rating of 4.0 out of 0 Overall: Rating of 4.7 out of 0
  The movie plays in a letterbox format (with black bars at the top and bottom). It's from 1992, but the quality of the print shows very little dust or other obvious flaws. Furthermore, the movie appears to be a DVD-quality picture. Within the bonus features, the Japanese sing-a-long of the original theme song is in full screen and shows clips from the original series, but even those pictures are in very impressive shape with very little dust or flaws.

  My DVD player confirms that the audio is 2.1 Dolby Digital. I didn't notice any problems with the sound.

  The opening and closing music lacks any subtitles which detracts from watching them. During the actual feature itself, some occasional grammar errors exist, but only one or two words were incorrectly spelled. In most cases, it's fairly easy to understand what the translators meant to say.

The names for Candy, Andrew, and Annie were correct; I can't confirm whether the other names were kept correctly, since I have few memories of the actual show (having watched a number of episodes on Japanese TV without understanding the language). The sing-a-long has only Japanese lyrics.

  The movie is 26 minutes long, with 7 minutes of bonus features. The DVD has 11 chapter breaks: one of some text in Japanese before the show, seven chapters for the movie, one for the text-less opening, one for the text-less closing, and one for the sing-a-long. The main menu and the subtitles menu are in English, while the chapter menu is in Japanese. Both sides of the DVD cover page have pictures, although my copy came in a black, non-transparent case.

As far as the actual movie goes, the colors have a lot more variety than the series clips found within the sing-a-long. The ending doesn't offer much closure, but that's to be expected from a mini-movie that was based upon a long-running TV series. Regardless of that situation, it's still a satisfying watch.
