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.

Such a sumptuous manga! The art alone entranced me - every little detail of Victorian England from the architecture down to the quirks and customs that inhabited every day life is drawn with tenderness and clarity. The only downside for me was that I felt quite detached from the main character, Emma. I suppose this is due to the fact that she's quite timid and stoic, yet on the other hand this is understandable given her station in life. But try as I might, I just couldn't 'love' her like I loved all the other characters. And to echo what someone said earlier, William's father, Richard, sure was a looker back in the day ;-) I loved the backstory between him and Aurelia!

dang it! Aw! The ending.... just... wow.

I love it, really. At the beginning the story was a bit boring... until the old woman passed away >_> And things started to get interesting. I love how realistic this book is, with the problems of different classes and all... The only thing I'm not satisfied with is the other characters like Grace or Arthur didn't get any ending... Well, this comic's title is EMMA anyway so it doesn't really matter...

But a sequel would be wonderful, really.

There's a detachment from the characters that I did not like. But that's how things were back then, so it only adds to the story.
This is an awesome story if you like accurate historical stories.
I'm stingy when it comes to giving out 9's and 10's but this one deserves a 9.

I didn't like the first few chapters at first, so it was on hold for some time.
I'm glad I've returned and read it.

Emma's character didn't apeal to me much, and the fact that her and Will's story wasn't the center of other great stories and events made the read so much more interesting.

Will's father was really gorgeous back in his days, and Hakim was so cute>.<
The art on Emma improved as the manga progressed, too.
(notice the smaller eyes) laugh

It feels like reading a novel of old (one of the good ones wink ) , with the plus of looking at very detailed, made-with-care pictures that really pull you into the victorian era .
One of the further elements Ms Mori masters is the transition (both space-wise and span time-wise) betwen scenes, and the timing to place zoom-in and close-ups. Very effective ^_^ .
The romance is there, but it's not the mushy type. Characters are quite a lot and varied, all of them basically have some time to shine and to endear themselves (or to make themselves spiteful , in few selected, purposeful cases XD ) to the reader.

Hopefully the sequel will be completely scanlated, there are a few chapters that can be considered a full ending to the story here (even if the main arc is wrapped up nicely ) - and what an ending , if I may add ^__^ - .

@Miss Raw: Emma is a seinen title because was published on a seinen magazine. It's all up to the target demographic of Japanese magazines, simple as that wink (one of the consequence of this being: people's tastes can be so wide and different that you can find very engaging romance - and with no ecchi! - inside something officially aimed at adult males. Don't you love the Japanese ^^? )

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.

Had everything a romance should have. The main reason for me using the word "perfect" is that it was so perfectly realistic that I was amazed.

The main reason I hate particular mangas is for the fact that the author creates characters which seem to have a certain quality to an unrealistic amount. For example a character that's simply way too depressed, way too happy, way too idealistic, way too chaotic/violent, or the commonly used in romance mangas "dense/ignorant female character who the male character is in love with". In Emma all the characters seemed...just right smile

I won't discuss the ending at all because using even a single word to talk about how I felt when reading it would give away what happens. I'm simply recommending this as an amazing read.

Now then...I should probably wrap this comment up, since it's getting rather long. I guess my last phrase will be "The best romance manga I've ever read".

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.

I loved the art and the plot of this story, I also love the small detail in some of the outfits that the female characters wear later on in the series. However, the ending was slightly disappointing, as it kind of felt like it was rushed which is why I am not giving it a 10 but I would still recommend reading Emma.
