So who exactly is Anohito (あのひと) — that person whom Candy presumably married in Candy Candy Final Story? For those of us who have read the translations and Italian edition of the Final Story, the answer to this question is clear.
Anohito (あのひと) Revealed
Anohito (あのひと) is none other than Terence Graham Granchester –son of a Duke, accomplished Shakespearean actor and above all, the only man whom Candy “loved more than anyone else.” (CC Final Story, Vol. 2, pg. 143).
Why are we so convinced?
Thanks to the collaborative effort and shared ideas and contributions of international fans, we managed to collect the most faithful translations possible and better examine the meaning behind the ambiguous maze of clues the author left behind. While it is true that the author purposely obscured the identity of “anohito” so that each fan is free to believe who he might be, the evidence leading to Terry was overwhelmingly clear.
Terry is surely and indisputably, “anohito – あのひと”. We strongly believe this.
And this blog will prove once and for all why he is the one and only choice for Candy.
To begin with, we invite you to read this post, highlighting Scottie’s enlightening essay and analysis on the nature of “anohito”! Although her point of view is featured in this site, there are other compelling and solid arguments from devoted fans that you’re encouraged to read at the Candy & Terry Forum.
So do not despair if you’ve recently watched (or rewatched) the anime or read the manga then felt frustrated and depressed! There is HOPE for Candy & Terry fans in the Candy Candy Final Story novel. The author made sure of it. 🙂 Believe! 😉
