Nobody's Boy Remi (家なき子 Ie Naki Ko?, lit. Homeless Child) is an anime created by Tokyo Movie Shinsha. The story is based upon French author Hector Malot's novel Sans Famille in France. The anime is well known in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Latin America, Quebec, France, Italy, the Arab world, Indonesia and Philippines.
A movie version by the same studio and director was released in 1980.
In the Philippines, the anime was originally shown between 1979 and 1980. However, like the other contemporary anime broadcast in the same period (Ron-ron, Candy Candy, Heidi, etc.), the full story was not shown. It was only after nearly twenty years that it was shown in full, under the title "Remi" on ABS-CBN, this time in Tagalog. ImaginAsian attempted to make the show available in America through on-demand DVD, but with no success. However, it is still available in streaming format on Hulu.
In 1996, a new adaptation of this story was aired in Japan.Remi, Nobody's Girl (家なき子レミ, Ie Naki Ko Remi?) was created by Nippon Animation as part of their famous World Masterpiece Theater series.
