Mediaset purchased the rights to broadcast the anime in Italy around 1999. In the summer of 2004, it began airing on Italia Teen Television as Mille emozioni tra le pagine del destino per Marie-Yvonne ("A thousand emotions among the pages of destiny for Marie-Yvonne"). The character's names were changed and many scenes were edited or cut. Narrations by Marie-Yvonne (Tsukushi) writing in a diary were added to every episode, hence the title.[10][11] The new theme song was performed by Cristina D'Avena.[12] In 2010, the Italian dub was rebroadcast on Hiro.[13]
