Anime himitsu no hanazono (NHK) Rated NR

Mary loses her parents to a disease in India. Orphaned, she then moves to England to live with her uncle and discovers a secret garden with a history. Based on the book, The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Starring Kazuyo Aoki, Yoichi Miyagawa, and Tomoko Munakata.

This TV series aired in Japan on NHK. The anime series is based on the book The Secret Garden. This series wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t the worst. I do wonder how they were able to split the book into 39 episodes. Each episode is 30 minutes in length, and for the most part, it does follow the book closely. To me, it was a little hard to follow just because it’s anime and you’re reading subtitles. Although each episode is small, it does bring a different take to the book. It’s worth a watch.
