Little Women II - Jo's Boys Episode 1 released!

"Have not you cares enough now, my Jo, without this little gypsy to torment you?" asked Mr. Bhaer, patting the hand that lay on his arm.

"Oh dear, no," said Mother Bhaer, briskly. "I like it, and never was happier than since I had my wilderness of boys. You see, Fritz, I feel a great sympathy for Nan, because I was such a naughty child myself that I know all about it. She is full of spirits, and only needs to be taught what to do with them to be as nice a little girl as Daisy. Those quick wits of hers would enjoy lessons if they were rightly directed, and what is now a tricksy midget would soon become a busy, happy child. I know how to manage her, for I remember how my blessed mother managed me, and—"

"And if you succeed half as well as she did, you will have done a magnificent work," interrupted Mr. Bhaer, who labored under the delusion that Mrs. B. was the best and most charming woman alive.

- Little Men, Chapter 7

Our new project will the World Masterpiece Theater series from 1993, "Wakakusa Monogatari: Nan to Jou-sensei", or as more commonly known, "Little Women II - Jo's Boys".

In this episode, Nan arrives at Plumfield.  However, her welcome and her rather unorthodox means of getting there are not exactly how one would get to a school for the first time.

You can obtain the episodes via your favorite anime torrent indexing sites.

This is a reminder that Licca Fansubs is recruiting translators and timers.  If you wish to contribute your skills, please contact us.

    Although I would have liked to have seen the first series done, I understand it would go against your policy.

    Thanks a lot for this! A big thanks to the new translator! Hopefully you guys can keep speed with all you do haha.

  5. @Anonymous

    my understanding is the only connection to the first series is the female teacher, who was one of the characters of the first series, and nothing else is related

  6. Oh!! Thank you!! I remember seeing this as a teenager *__* .

  7. You are great guys! Thank you 'translator'-san for picking up this fantastic fansub group!!


  9. Words can't express how grateful I am!
    You subbed Shoukoujo Sara, Ai Shoujo Pollyanna Monogatari and now Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari II *____*
    You people are awesome!
    Thank you so so much!
    But please consider to sub the first series, Little Women, too!

  10. is there a first season to this series ??
    and do we have to watch it before the second one @.@ ?!

    Really Thank you for subbing this .. i luv it as i was a kid when i was watching it ^^

  11. @thesilversea
    well there is a first series to it, it tells the story of Jo-sensei's childhood (she is 15 there) and her family (mostly herself, her three sisters and their mother)
    The first series is Little Woman or Ai no wakusaku Monogatari
    You don't have to watch it to understand this series, but it's amusing if you know it :] And it's worth the watch
    It is based on a book by Louisa May Alcott, also called Little Women (defintely worth the read!)

    And this Series, Little Women 2, is based on the Book Little Men, also by Louisa May Alcott

    There are two more books
    One plays between Little Women and Little Men, called Good Wive's
    And the other plays after Little Men and is called Jo's Boys
    Sadly they never got an anime :/ (I didn't read Little men and Jo's Boys because it's hard to find in germany (the translation, I could always read the english book but never got to it)

  12. And a 1000000000000000 thanks to Licca Fansub for releasing this wonderfull anime
    My childhood <3
    I love you really much

  13. Infinite thanks Licca! What a wonderful surprise! I love you! This WMT is a real Gem!

  14. I'll have a post later tonight about our expectations and some background information that may be useful.

    For the most part, this series is standalone and does not really require watching the prequel.

  15. So wonderful. I always dreamed someone would sub this series. Thank you so much =^_^=

  16. WOW! Thanks a lot for another great WMT series :-)

    Does anyone know if there is a release for the first series?

    Thanks again! You're wonderful

  17. Thank you very much, another great WMT series finally gets subbed =)

  18. I don't know how to thank you for picking another great WMT series.
    I was jumping out of joy, Licca you are awesome, wonderful, fantastic and the best.

    I also wish if the first season wasn't licensed, so you could sub it, but I can understand your policy.

    As it is you've done the most wonderful job by subbing three of the WMT series and this is the fourth. WOW!!!!!!!!!!

    Arigatou! Ganbare!!

  19. the first series WAS licensed, but the license for it expired a long time ago, so it would be ok to sub. it's funny because even though the license for the show expired, Smile of a Child TV still broadcast it alongside with the english dub of Fushigi na Shima no Flone (Swiss Family Robinson) the first series by far is one of my favorites, but seeing the sequel series subbed is really such a treat. i can't thank you guys enough for doing this series.

  20. Oh my GOD I love you so much for subbing this! *___*

  21. Ok guys ....
    do you have any idea how long i have been waiting for some one to do this?

    Huuuuuuuuuge kudos for you!

  22. thanks thanks *___* this series i watching on my contry in Latin Spanish Dub :3 now i downloading thank gracias gracias

  23. @Fred: The license is obviously still valid otherwise Smile of a Child TV can not broadcast it.

  24. You're kidding right?! YOU"RE KIDDING! =)) OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!! Thank thank thank YOU so much! Omygosh I can hug everyone right now. thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
