Candy Candy: The Great-Uncle William who adopted Candy, and whose identity was the best-kept secret through the whole series, is revealed to be Albert, the man who became Candy's friend and watched over her on certain moments of her life, the last of them while he was amnesiac. Oh, and he also was the very "Prince of the Hill" she became infatuated with when she was a little girl. Also, Candy ends happily single, taking care of the orphanage where she grew up. All Latin American girls who saw that became rightly shocked and outraged. No wonder the Italians declared Fanon Discontinuity and created their own ending.
