Shokojo Seira (Japanese version of A Little Princess)

A Little Princess is a children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. There have been different film and television adaptations of it and we're pretty sure all of you have seen at least one of them.

We've seen them all (oops except the 1917 film, ayt- so not all then!) and we think the 2009 Japanese remake "Shokojo Seira" is the best we've seen so far. It's a 10 episode drama series.

This remake is not faithful to the novel but this is like the 6th television version. They had to spice it up a little bit. We think the modifications made sense and we loved how the screenwriter established them.

Anyway, for more info about the film and tv adaptations please go to:

There are different "fansubs" and here's one of them:
