It was a pity that I didn’t have the chance to finish watching a Cinderella-like story of Emma: A Victorian Romance in Animax. It was first aired on the channel when I was still in high school, and because the evening schedule wasn’t just fit for my schedule, I didn’t have the chance to watch the later episodes. The storyline was great though, very heartwarming but still, it’s no good to think that still I haven’t had the chance to watch it. I only watched a few good earlier episodes. I also watched the continuation of the anime via YouTube but I was too broke at that time. In short, I just don’t have the chance.
Now that I’m starting downloading a few manga copies of my own choice I stumbled upon the manga version of Emma and I was perfectly happy to download and finally finished the whole story! I was so delighted, it was a very good story, mind you, and sometimes I think about the romantic story in my serious, so-called reflection moments. Ha! I just like the character of William Jounes and I also like Hakim too! I think Hakim is much more appealing to me, though his ‘girls’ are kind of disturbing. Then again, I think I’ll prefer Will.
The story was about the maid Emma, who came to work with the retired live-in governess and widowed Kelly Stowner. One day, William Jounes, who was Kelly Stowner’s former student, visited her. There he bumped into Emma, and fell in love with her. But William is the oldest son of the noble family of Jounes, and her father Richard already decided that his son would marry Eleanor Campbell, who was a daughter of a viscount. And then, the conflict starts here.
But I’m not spilling out the whole story here though, I would like you to read it yourself because it’s a very nice manga.
The manga series was written by Kaoru Mori. I would like to thank Iihan Translation Group for coming up with a good manga release such as this and Stoptazmo as well for the distribution. I’m so happy and would like to thank personally the people who were involved with this manga project especially to
the translators whispers and mogura;
to by_request for a good editing job;
to squeeks and jedi_vader20 for the distribution;
to the quality checker boke;
to !waha.06×36 for providing the raw volumes;
and to the scanners winny and anonymous! I saw your names in the manga copy that I have. Thanks a lot guys, you rock!
The manga has a total of 52 chapters in 7 volumes, so its not really painstaking to read it. Besides, it’s all worth it.
