** Supposedly, General [=McArthur's=] wife introduced the ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'' novels to Japan with the aim of making Japanese women more individualistic. Make of that what you will...

** ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'' is even popular on an academic level in Japan. It's required reading in the curricula of many schools; in fact, it's even been republished in manga/comic format for the sole purpose of encouraging more children and teenagers to read it.

* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: Albeit largely a case of ValuesDissonance -- the stories being set in an era in which gushily sentimental overtones were a standard part of any female friendship -- this can be read into much of Montgomery's work. Anne Shirley and Diana Barry's relationship in the first book hits pretty much every Les Yay button there is. (The 1980s TV version makes it even more obvious.)

* CashCowFranchise: Montgomery was always slightly annoyed at the popularity of the Anne books and how the public wants her to do nothing better than to churn more of them out. In the early days, responded to the proposal of writing a sequel where Anne goes to college with, "The idea makes me sick." She ended up relenting and writing ''Anne of the Island.'' Later, she swore to herself that ''Rilla of Ingleside'' would be the last Anne novel, only to write ''Anne of Windy Poplars'' and ''Anne of Ingleside'' a decade-and-a-half later.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Josie Pye is supposed to be an AlphaBitch ([[SmallNameBigEgo in her mind anyway]]) but her bitchy behavior is pretty minor and a few times Anne actually starts it. Plus, characters constantly go on about how awful the Pye girls are and Josie is the youngest. You have to wonder how much of her attitude is a result of being harshly judged based on her family.

* FixerSue: Basically, just read ''Anne of Windy Poplars'' as Anne being the Fixer Sue for all the people of Summerside and their scene-stealing antics, and the entire book flows much better.

** Gilbert [[LampShade Lampshades]] this in ''Anne's House of Dreams'', saying, after Anne points out how wasted Leslie's potential is being impoverished and stuck with her idiot husband, that some people would consider a B.A. and burgeoning established magazine writer to be "wasted" as the wife of a poor country doctor.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The scene where Anne accidentally gets Diana drunk on current wine in the musical. In the book, this incident has major consequences, causing Mrs. Barry to forbid Diana from seeing Anne. In the show, however, the scene merely happens, and is never referred to again, with Mrs. Barry being more-or-less chill about the whole thing. The audience doesn't really care, though, [[RuleOfFunny because it's still pretty funny]].

** While undoubtedly well-meant, Marilla's methods for child-rearing, at least before she gets used to Anne and her particular nature, can strike the modern reader as surprisingly rigid and lacking in understanding. Her attitudes reflect both strict Presbyterian values and the Victorian notion that children should be unquestioningly respectful and obedient to their elders to the point of being self-effacing. Early on, she has no qualms about telling Anne to "hold her tongue" when she wants her to be quiet. When Anne tells off Rachel Lynde for criticizing her looks, Marilla is outraged and, while admitting that Rachel is too outspoken, insists that her being "a stranger and an elderly person and my visitor" are "very good reasons" for why Anne should have been respectful to her (despite Rachel having been disrespectful to Anne first), and is adamant that Anne apologize.

(Though to her credit, her first response is to call out Mrs. Lynde on it.)

***That's more due to Rilla promising that she won't kiss anyone else until his return from war, rather than the actual kiss.
