Emma A Victorian Romance – Love and Heartbreak in Victorian England


Emma: A Victorian Romance (Eikoku Koi Monogatari Emma) is a beautifully realised romantic story set in Victorian England and based upon the manga ‘Emma’ by artists Mori Kaoru. Eikoku Koi Monogatari Emma is a classic romantic story about two people from different social backgrounds who fall in love and must struggle against society to be together. It has been used before, and in this particular case it is the story of the romance between William Jones, the eldest son of a wealthy merchant family attempting to break into the gentry class, and Emma, a poor, yet beautiful maid. Emma is a wonderful story, with animation that is muted, but also highly detailed and brilliant to look at, coupled with a truly wonderful story that is emotional, heart-rending, and a joy to watch makes for one of my favourite anime series.
