About this deal

Shōkōjo Sēra: a 1978 Japanese anime adaptation featured in episodes 105-115 (eleven 10-minute segments in total) of Manga Sekai Mukashi Banashi (1976-1979), an anthology series based on fairy tales and literature classics produced by Dax International and Madhouse.

Rich Bitch: Lavinia Herbert, who was the richest girl in school before Sara turned up, and sees the younger girl as a threat to her social standing. He gives her back her half of the "bad investment," which in the end turned out to be worth many times more than he and her father had anticipated, and takes her as his ward. In Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic tale A Little Princess, we meet Sara Crewe, a precocious and imaginative seven-year-old, who lives a privileged life in India with her devoted father, Captain Crewe.

Rags to Riches: Inverted: The book and adaptations are frequently promoted as a "riches to rags" story. She was born in Cheetham, England, and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee.

Burnett's captivating storytelling and memorable characters have made her a beloved author for readers of all ages. In the book of Genesis, Sarah — wife of Abraham — gives birth to Isaac, and is promised that she will be a princess of many nations. Darkest Hour: When Sara's attic party is caught and Sara is subjugated to another day without food, and Sara glumly tries to sleep to dream of something nice. She also makes up stories about the families in the neighbouring houses, whose lives she glimpses through the windows as she passes. I think I confused the plot of this with A Little Princess somewhat, as there are several attempts from the girls to escape and I kept half-expecting Sara to do the same, or for her father to not really be dead.

He's introduced as the head of a loving family that Sara envies, and when his profession is revealed, it's in a conversation where he offers to travel to Moscow to follow a vague lead on Sara's whereabouts. Princesses Prefer Pink: A significant scene in which Sara meets Becky is marked by Sara's carefully described rose-pink dancing costume, complete with rosy pink cheeks and a wreath of pink roses in her hair. Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924) was born in England and moved to the United States as a teenager.

Spirited Young Lady: Sara is a bit more assertive in this adaptation, more prone to talking back while still being dignified. Without her beloved father and miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. This edition has no pictures except the cover one, which is a good one (the scene of the sixpence coin).Even Evil Has Loved Ones: After her sister Amelia leaves after her "The Reason You Suck" Speech, Miss Minchin is briefly seen holding back tears. Well, it is by a Victorian novelist: the old gent from India who moves in next door turns out to be looking for a particular young lady who is due to inherit a great deal of money. The story of how she becomes in the truest sense, a real princess will carry every reader, through laughter and tears, to a remarkable ending brought about with the help of a pet monkey, a fairy-godfather Indian lascar, and a mysterious old gentleman. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it. Miss Minchin's younger sister Miss Amelia is replaced with "Mr Bertie", Miss Minchin's brother, a former music hall performer, who sings and dances with Temple.
