William and Emma meet again - Victorian Romance Emma
This is a superb Seinen manga. Not only is the artwork stunning, but the storyline is so simple, yet so well written. It takes place in late 19th century England (perhaps 1895) and is about a maid and wealthy young man who fall in love, despite difference in social classes.
It is very historically researched, the detail is perfect; characters, traits and lifestyles are reflective of the time, and all 10 volumes (the last is an extra that completes the story) are very well paced, and keeps the story moving.
This is one of the best romance mangas I have ever read, and one of the best mangas period.
If you’re sick of unrealistic mangas with immature, annoying teenagers and petty, silly conflicts not worth the time of day - this is for you. Do yourself a favor and read it, and also check out the author’s other work - A Bride’s Story. Another great, ongoing tale.
Not only is the manga one of the best out there, the anime is as well (it not only follows the manga pretty closely but amazingly it manages to reproduce the art faithfully too!)
EVERYTHING IS JUST SO GOOD, I ORDER Y’ALL TO GO READ/WATCH IT
*adds to reread/rewatch list*
The ending is different? I never saw the anime
These five pages are my favorite comic pages ever.
