Dear Candyfans and friends,

It's Terry Grandchester's birthday! Our favorite noble, rebel white knight, and King of the CT forum turns 113 years old today and he just looks better every year.

While I have no major updates prepared for this special day, I would like to report that Kyoko Mizuki has "semi-officially" announced that she is currently working on revising her Candy Candy Novel which may be published this year. About 1400 pages of her original manuscript had been revised and edited with the first publication and Mizuki hopes to incorporate and edit in her original ideas of Candy Candy into this new, revised edition. She also plans to include a short epilogue with Candy in her late 30's or 40's. The novel will be published in Japan, in Japanese text, so if you would like to have this novel translated in your own language, I encourage you to solicit your own country's publisher to negotiate translation and publication rights with Kyoko Mizuki.

You're all welcome to come and celebrate Terry's birthday with his fans at the
Candy & Terry Forum!

Dear Candyfans and friends,

It's that time of year again where we remember the first meeting between Candy and Terry aboard the cruise ship Mauretania!    It was this chance encounter on New Year's Eve, 1912, that sparked their interest and love for each other throughout the series!

Have a very VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR dear friends!  May 2010 bring you and your family all the happiness, peace, love, and good health!

You're welcome to join us at the Candy & Terry Forum for some New Year Fun and Festivities!

Dear Candyfans and friends,

To celebrate Kyoko Mizuki's birthday, I've included a biography of her life and works in my site! Mizuki is well-known in Japan for writing juvenille love stories and mangas, but has yet to reach international recognition for her cumulative work. As Candy fans, we know her best as the author of the Candy Candy manga and novel. Let's hope her novels and other stories will be translated and published one day in our own respective languages for fans to enjoy!

New CC Media! Added a biographical page of Kyoko Mizuki and her works.

New CC Links! Updated the links page by removing dead links and added new CC sites and forums to visit! Sadly many old CC websites have gone offline and have been discontinued.

 "Terruce, anata ga suki desu, hoka no dare yorimo"
(Translation: Terry, I love you more than anyone else)--
Quote from the Candy Candy Novel, Volume 2 by Kyoko Mizuki

Candy & Terry's Romantic Paradise!

September 17, 2009

Dear Candyfans and friends,

Let's support the continuation of Candy Candy by signing this petition from Itomaru online!

I've also decided to RE-OPEN the CandyTerry Forum on a temporary basis, for all fans who are interested in continuing CC discussions.  Please join us there!

 

June 3. 2009

Dear Candyfans and friends,

This month marks the 10th year anniversary of my site "Candy & Terry's Paradise" and my involvement online with Candy Candy and the fandom surrounding this beloved anime/manga. Like Candy's story, the experience has been a bittersweet journey filled with its ups and downs, but at the same time, it's been a labor of love for me as a devoted Candy fan. This milestone has caused me to reflect hard on the future of this forum and my site.

Earlier this year when I was faced with the decision to keep the forum or not, I had decided to keep it going temporarily at the wish of many members, while evaluating the board's activity for the next 6 months. Unfortunately during these last months and even before last year, I've noticed a steady decline in active discussions in most of the forums and a general lack of Candy spirit. I think it's safe to say that we've said almost all we've had to say about Candy Candy and her story, especially when the most popular thread is the OFF TOPIC section. In any case, I sense that the interest in keeping this forum is fading, along with my movitation to continue as administrator and webmistress. Financially, I don't know how long I would be able to continue as well.

And so it's with deep regret that I've decided to officially close the Candy & Terry Forum this Saturday, June 6. New fans will not be allowed to register and members will no longer be able to post in the forums. It will remain an ARCHIVE so everyone will still be able to read the threads if they wish. If you are posting your fanfictions and following other members' fanfictions in the French section, you are invited to join Gentillefille's Candy & Georgie forum or CC Fanfic forum (links to be provided later) and post there. As for my Candy & Terry's Paradise website, it will still remain online, but updates will be rare and few, if any.

Finally, before I head into CC Retreat, I'd like to thank all of you, cherished members and friends, my dear Moderators, and guests of the forum for visiting my site and supporting me and forum throughout all these years. I couldn't have done this without your participation and priceless contribution. You've enriched my site and the forum with your fanarts, fanfictions, fan creations, and lively discussions. I'll always be eternally grateful for this and the warm friendships you've given me. Mahalo Nui Loa with all my heart.

All my CandyAlohas and Best Wishes,
MsCandyTerry (webmistress)

New CC Links! Visit these great new sites dedicated to Candy! Her fandom just keeps growing and expanding, even into the blogworld! Sneak a peek into the webmistress's online blog as I secretly write about my work with Terry Grandchester at TGG Enterprise! It's an ongoing blog-fic for mature readers (strong adult language and situations). I recommend starting at the first post "And so it begins" to follow the storyline. Revealing surprises and shocking tabloids inside! 

Thank you for visiting Candy & Terry's Romantic Paradise!

 
Long Live Candy and Terry!

Dear Candyfans and friends,

This past May, I had announced that I would no longer be updating my website and was ready for retirement from Candyworld. Well, as fate would have it, there's still much Candy work to do, especially when your boss is the slavedriver King  
Terry Grandchester!  Apparently his Highness still needs a publicity agent he can hassle!

And so with renewed motivation and heartwarming support from the loyal members of the
Candy&Terry Forum, I've decided to continue my work on this site starting with a huge Christmas update!  

New Fanfictions! A wealth of fanfictions await you for your leisure holiday reading! This impressive collection of stories is proof that Candy continues to inspire the writer in all of us! Introducing their fanfictions for the first time are: Arexu-chan, Ayen, Carra, Cahaaz, Death2Eliza, Eleanna, Kim Hae Sung, Ko Kyoung Hee, Mariadelmar, and Seo Jung Young! Returning with exciting new chapters and new fanfictions are veteran CC authors Candylyna, Céline, Eleonor, Hélène, Lady Gato, Leia, Liberty, Mallory Quinn (Gentillefille), Mercurio, MissNostalgia, Priss, Seraphine, and Tuba (Mrscage)! Enjoy reading the new adventures and love stories for Candy, Terry, Anthony, Albert and other CC characters! You won't be disappointed at the depth and quality of these fics! 

New Fanarts! Proudly displaying lovely new drawings and sketches from Korean Candy fans, Loreley, Priss, and Queen of Hearts! A veritable feast for the eyes!

New CC International Translations! A side-by-side list of all the 115 episodes in Japanese, English, Greek, French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian is now available! Efharisto to Candicted for contributing the list of Greek episodes and Anonyme for the English ones! Also updated the translations for "Candy & Terry's First Meeting" with a Greek to English translation by Eleonor and a Spanish (Castillian) to English translation by Lady Gato! You can find more English translations of key anime CT scenes at the Candy&Terry Forum. And finally, enjoy reading the english transcript of the Italian CC Ending from the film "Candy Candy e Terrence" contributed by Whitechapel! At last you can watch a happy CT ending!  Much Mahalo, Efharisto, Gracias, and Grazie to all our dear translators!

New CC Media! This section has been reorganized to include more subjects on a variety of CC media: 1) CC Videos, 2) CC Audio Files, 3) CC Novels and Mizuki's Letters, 4) CC Trials and Merchandise, 5) CC Mangas, and 6) CC Curiosities!

Under CC Audio Files, you can hear the recorded voices of Candy and Terry spoken in different languages. Newly added are the CT voices in Greek, Korean, and Turkish. Happy CT listening! Updated are the CC Videos (included info on Italian and French videos), Mizuki's letters (her last announcement on January 6, 2006) and clarification on CC merchandise. A new section, CC Mangas, displays newly scanned images of CC mangas translated in different languages from all over the world! Also added CC Curiosities, where you can read about odd and interesting products and sequels that arose from the Candy franchise such as "Oyajii, Oyajii" (The Candy Eyeball) series

Both artists demonstrate their unique photoshop skills and talent in colorizing and bringing these selected manga images to life!  Next is a wonderful Candy & Terry animation with excerpts from Volume 2 of Mizuki's Candy Candy Novel created by the Korean CC fans! A true CT delight!

New CC Links ! Candyworld is ever evolving! Updated some old links and added new ones to new Candy sites and forums! And since I've changed hosts, I've replaced the old CT banners with some animated ones just for fun. Make sure to visit some CC sites for their own Christmas updates!

May 7, 2007

Dear Candyfans and friends,

It's been exactly two years now since I've updated this site with a new look, a new server and frequent new updates! During the past eight years as a webmistress and forum administrator, I can say that the experience has been extremely rewarding and often times challenging  ! 

Before creating this website in 1999, I had surfed through a handful of semi-active and non-active CC websites and discovered that there were many enthusiastic fans who still remembered and loved "Candy Candy"! I couldn't believe it! I was happy and amazed to see that this 70's anime/ manga continued to live in our hearts and that the passion for this childhood story had not faded with time. A wave of nostalgia hit me and the desire to connect with other fans who loved Candy prompted me to create my own website. I was truly inspired, but most of all, I wanted to reach out to fans who were also traumatised and unhappy with Candy and Terry's seperation.

And so my first website "Candy & Terry's Page" was born. It started off as a simple page dedicated to Candy & Terry with a single image and a guestbook. Through this guestbook, I've met many fans from all over the world whose lives were profoundly touched by "Candy Candy". Thanks to one these early fans, I discovered Kyoko Mizuki's website and was able to 'meet' her through her own guestbook. I still have her first message to me:

Welcome! Kyoko Mizuki 1999-07-17 (Sat) 11:48:56

Welcome Nila! Thank you so much for writing in my guest book! Do you understand how much I am grateful to know that there is a fan of my "Candy * Candy" in my favorite place Hawaii! I feel sorry for not writing well in English, but, I try to write more next time. Today, just a greeting from me to you "ALOHA!"

Kyoko Mizuki 

Sadly, her last messages to her fans were filled with sorrow and regret due to the personal trauma she endured during her legal battles with her former friend and business parter, Yumiko Igarashi. As a result of that, Candyfans have no hope of ever seeing an official sequel to Candy's story.

As my website slowly evolved, I noticed that the fanbase was scattered and the only fan interactions possible were limited to posting in guestbooks and private emails. There was a strong desire to chat and bond with other fans and discover how Candy entered their lives. And so, in collaboration with other CC webmistresses (english, french, and spanish), an invitation was sent to the international community of Candyfans to unite and share our common love for "Candy Candy". International yahoo groups and bravenet forums dedicated to Candy were formed and in some cases, divided as groups of fans banded together to passionately support their favorite characters. Thus, Candyworld was born and out of it came an explosion of creativity reflecting all the suppressed dreams, personal conceptions, and unsatisfied yearnings of individual fans. From parts of Asia, Europe, to North and South America, fans came together to humbly share their CC fanarts, fanfictions, and personal creations. Long and thorough discussions and analyses about the storyline and characters animated the international Candy forums. Language and cultural barriers were broken as fans shared their opinions and personal experiences surrounding the trials and triumphs of Candy's story. Through the CC groups and forums, I was fortunate to have formed longlasting friendships with Candyfans that not only endured the test of time, but long absences from the internet. This is the surprising legacy that Candy's story left us. I wonder if the authors realise what a significant impact their story has made on the fans on both a personal and international level? We may never know, but they've left behind an unforgettable story with an ambiguous ending that left us longing for more.

During the past eight years, this website had undergone many changes and grown beyond the simple page that it started from. My site is not only a result of the work I've invested in these past years. It has become a place filled with the unwavering love and devotion to "Candy Candy",  as reflected by all the fans who have generously contributed their work. I'm truly proud and honored to have hosted my site to their wonderful "chef-d'oeuvres". This is why, it is with deep regret that I announce that I will no longer be making any future updates to "Candy & Terry's Paradise". I have other preoccupations that demand my attention and unfortunately I won't be able to invest my time in Candyworld as I had before. Creating and updating this website, providing a forum for fans to meet and discuss, and most of all, meeting and getting to know some of you as cherished friends online and offline have enriched a part of my life. We've shared a lot of fun moments filled with laughter and celebration. And even though there were some uneasy times, we've managed to pull through together and keep the spirit of "Candy Candy" alive among us. Overall, it's been a gratifying experience that I'll always hold dear to my heart.

And so, it is with confidence and assurance that I pass on the torch to you dear Candyfans, who continue to remain active in Candyworld with your presence, your lively discussions, and your creative works! I trust you all to keep the 'spirit' of "Candy Candy" alive and burning long enough to inspire the next generation of Candyfans! Since there won't be any new updates, I encourage you to use the CandyTerry Forum to post your new fanfictions, fanarts, and other fan creations that you would like to share with other fans! The advantage to that is the immediate feedback/comments/reviews you could receive on your work!  I would also like to invite our passive readers to actively participate and join in the fun as you will be warmly received. Even though it's a "Candy & Terry" forum, ALL Candyfans are welcome despite your preference for one character over another.  

Finally dear Candyfans and friends, I leave you with an excerpt from a simple song that's part of my childhood. For those who might remember the actress/comedian "Carol Burnett", you'll recognize this song that she sang to her audience after each performance. It was her closing theme song!  

I'm so glad we had this time together,
Just to have a laugh, or sing a song.
Seems we just got started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say, 'So long.'

There's a time you put aside for dreamin',
And a time for things you have to do.
The time I love the best is in the evening -
I can spend a moment here with you.

When the time comes that I'm feelin lonely,
And I'm feelin' ohooooo - so blue,
I just sit back and think of you, only,
And the Happiness still comes through.

That's why I'm glad we had this time together,
'Cause it makes me feel like I belong.
Seems we just got started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say, 'So long.'

Long Live Candy and Terry!

And before you leave, I invite you to join the rest of Candyfans at the CANDYTERRY FORUM in celebrating Candy and Annie's birthday today!   

Thank you for visiting Candy & Terry's Romantic Paradise!

January 1, 2007: Updates

Dear Candyfans and friends,

No major updates today! Just a little note from the CT webmistress to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR with my very best CandyTerry wishes!

And so what else is special about New Year's day, or rather, New Year's eve? Well, it's the first time that Candy and Terry met aboard the ship, Mauretania, headed for England!  To relive their unforgettable and humorous first encounter, visit  Candy & Terry's New Year's Page to view the music videomanga that I had made for 2006! If you hadn't seen it before, I hope you'll enjoy it!

In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates coming up this month from Candy & Terry's Paradise!
