    Default Candy Candy - Watashi wa Candy

    http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/candy/opening.htm

    I believe there's a mistranslation here:

    SUTAIRU nante, ki ni shinai wa futoccho datte datte datte, kawaii mon

    Currently tled as:
    I don't care about my (fashion) style I think I'm cute being a bit chubby

    Corrected tl:
    I don't care about my figure I think I'm cute being a bit chubby
    スタイル
    (n) (1) style; (2) (female) figure; <-- based on the context, the 2nd defintion applies.

    I see what you're saying. If you consider "SUTAIRU nante, ki ni shinai wa" and "futoccho datte datte datte, kawaii mon" connected, then "figure" would definitely make more sense than "fashion". However, though, the next two lines are talking about something else again, so I'm not sure if the first two lines are supposedly to be related at all.

    Guess I'll let AzureDark decide this.

    If you look at the whole song, you'll see that the first two lines of each verse are always related. First verse: I don't worry about my freckles; after all, I like my nose. Second verse (this one): I don't worry about my figure; after all, I'm cute even if I get fat. Third verse: I don't worry about being teased; after all, if people say mean things to me, I remain calm.

    Anyway, let's wait for a second opinion, I guess.

    I'm not sure if freckles and nose can be considered related, lol, but since the song seems to be talking about body image (as in physical attributes), I guess your point is valid.

    I have changed "style" to "figure".
