After reading the synopsis for this book I'm assuming it's based off Elizabeth Boyle's historical romance Something About Emmaline. I really enjoyed reading the book a year or two ago so I'm hoping Risou no Tsuma no Takurami wa can live up to the original story. (And hopefully not cut out the Baron's friend whom I found likable.) So I'll give this a shot and then re-reread the oringinal story for a refresher. bigrazz

Surprisingly good.

To be honest I'm surprised at how good this manga was. Or rather, how well the manga rendition was executed. I always feel that manga versions of harlequin novels make a muddle of everything, rush here and there in unexplained turns or emotion, and fail to provide adequate means for the reader to easily follow the plot. Most of these stories also have that overbearing melodramatic cheesyness that's even more evident in the manga rendition than the original (can't be certain, of course, not having actually read the originals) because it's all crammed into a smaller space, and surpasses all borders of even remotely good taste. I feel that Something about Emmaline is quite a bit better in execusion than most other harlequin mangas. It is a concise whole, exelently translated, the melodrama doesn't go into the ridiculous - and I even enjoyed the story ^^.

Oh, one thing. Emmaline's real name was Button. Button? Really? And her mother allowed it? .... I assumed it was a petname until the ending.

I for one loved it. The art was nice and the plot was pretty interesting. As polarpotterbear said, everything was settled too quickly and conveniently, but still it was handed in a satisfying way.
I really loved the female lead who had a strong personality and even the guy managed not to get annoying. Actually Alex really matured during the course of the action, from a dull brat to a man that knows what he wants in life.
I think this is one of the best works in the Harlequin category.

It was pretty ok. At first it was really interesting because you weren't really sure what was going on. But everything was wrapped up so quickly in one chapter that it was too much for me. If it ended at a good pace, it would've been better
