Emma A Victorian Romance

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Emma: A Victorian Romance is based off of the Emma manga series that is written and illustrated by Kaoru Mori.

The series is set in Victorian London at the end of the 19th century. The anime's depiction of Victorian England is very accurate, with landmarks of that time period being recreated in meticulous detail. These landmarks include King's Cross Station, The Crystal Palace, Coven Garden, and Mudie's Lending Library.

Emma, the title character of the series, works as a maid for Kelly Stowner. Emma originally came from a poor Yorkshire village, but she was kidnapped as a young girl. Her kidnappers intended to sell her to a London brothel, but she escaped from her captors. However, Emma became lost in London, and she had to work odd jobs for food. Emma was found by Mrs. Stowner and brought in as her maid.

At the beginning of the series, Mrs. Stowner receives a visit from William Jones, a young man from the "House of Jones." Mrs. Stowner had worked for his wealthy merchant middle class family as William's governess. When William meets Emma, he falls in love with her, and over time, Emma develops feelings for William. However, William's family disapproves of their son associating with people from the lower classes. The Jones family wants their oldest son to take over the family business and marry into another wealthy class family.

But there's more than just William's family that could be a problem for Emma and William. Hakim Atawari, a prince from India who is best friends with William from their days attending Eton College together, becomes captivated with Emma the first time he sees her. Eleanor Campbell, the shy daughter of a viscount, falls in love with William. Her feelings for William are often reinforced by misunderstanding his courtesy and accommodation. Her family's financial situation is deteriorating, and Eleanor's father wants her to marry into the wealthier, although lower class, Jones family.

Emma: A Victorian Romance is set in a time and era that many manga and anime never touch upon. If you enjoy romance and the Victorian England time period, then you might find enjoyment in Emma: A Victorian Romance. Personally, I would recommend this series to anime viewers who are 13 or 14 years of age and older.
