From CMX:

In Victorian-era England, a young girl is rescued from a life of destitution and raised to become a proper British maid. Emma meets William, the eldest son of a wealthy family, and immediately falls in love with him. William shares her feelings, but the strict rules of their society prevent their relationship from ever coming out in the open. Traditional class distinctions and rich, historical details provide the backdrop for this appealing romance.

Note: Volumes 8-10 are "Emma: Further Tales". They fill in details from the Emma manga, both before and after the events in that storyline.

Each chapter explores the motivations or simply shows a day in the life of a particular character from the story.

Find out about the romance between Doug and Kelly in their early days, or follow the adventures of Eleanor as she overcomes her heartache and begins to live again, or visit with Tasha and her family on her day off.

The manga was just... right. It's wasn't too dramatic, but it doesn't bore you either. All characters are lovable, and none can be hated. I was hesitant reading this and I stopped at the first chapter. I picked it up again, and I was so obsess with it, that I finish it really quickly.

A good ending too. Well, at least in my book.

AND, I don't consider this seinen. Maybe Josei, but not Seinen.

Emma does what any real life based romance mangas can only aspire to. The believability of the characters is such that even the more subtle parts of the story become "quaint" instead of "boring". I found myself smiling at just the little touches -the way emma talks to the young master, how the head butler speaks in dignified tones...
Emma is an engrossing and romantic story that despite its many subtleties or perhaps, because of them, delivers a wholly compelling and thouroughly enjoyable read.
You will not be dissapointed.

i've been reading this manga like a millionth times, (well, maybe just about a hundred), and i am still moved by it. the mangaka has excellent way to deliver the story. she pays attention to historical detail, she gives pauses between acts, and she lets many panels without dialog: its like she lets the drawing told you the story; and its executed very nicely. pay attention to characters' eyes, hand gestures, body postures, and the succession through panels; nothing is too much, and nothing is too little. all is smooth! when you enjoy the unwritten words, the story became more and more enjoyable as you flip (or click) the pages. just totally recommended.

The artwork can be seen as a bit unusual at first, but it's unique and improves so don't let that stop anyone from reading!... Also the plot is just so captivating, whether it be romance or overcoming the difference in social classes, or just the industrialization is general. It's a nice read and definitely recommended.~

Such an enthralling story! I enjoyed it every step of the way.

What amazes me about the story is how historically accurate it is. The social class structure of the Victorian era, how "stable" everything had to be, all the gossiping - that was all there. The artwork is very detailed, and is well-done and accurate as well.

It felt like a Jane Auste novel came to life! ^^ It was good, very good but I wish the ending was a bit more....satisfactory. I was still debating to myself whether their love was actually 'love' and until the end I couldn't find the answer. I still don't know.

I can just tell you, that i loved it, completely.
You see, as Saons said the romance is not all written in words for you to read and go "ohhh", You need imagination for this kind of manga, As it's more "feel the atmosphere" rather than "and then they fell in love --" Ya know. XD So yes, Recommendation from me !

(Only reason i didn't rate it 10 is because of the ending, Don't get me wrong it's just an opinion, Maybe people like that kind of ending.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The kind of they just show hints of the end, and everything is up to your imagination oh but they DO get together, No hanging in that!

First off, the mangaka is awesome. You meet her in the afterword each time. Again, she's awesome.
The manga is a little hard to get into the first couple of pages (lol), but it gets so seriously good. The romance is sweet, the characters are likeable and interesting, the setting is very well illustrated and believable.. the slice of life doesn't bore, nor does the plot. But what's really amazing is the atmosphere, which builds up slowly but already from volume 3 on, you feel like you're living it. It has all the right things to make a great manga. Read it. I doubt I'll read anything like this again anytime soon... easily one of my favorites ever. To think that I initially stalled reading this.

TL;DR: I don't think I've been swept away to such a degree by manga before. Superb manga.
And oh, I don't even really like maids in particular. There's much more to the manga than maid fan service.

The art was stunning and the plot and characters were beautiful. I admire the mangakas ability to make the characters come alive and off the pages. I sympathized with the characters and i cared for them. Too bad though, i would loved a sequel. It was just too beautiful to end. It was a nice feel good manga and definitely something i will be rereading.
