This one was so sad!! I was not prepared for so many things in this one, even if the description kind of hints at some of it. The way things played out were not what I was expecting or hoping for. Gahhh

Onto Vol. 3!

London. Victorian type era. Slow burn forbidden romance. How can I not love this?!?!

Sweet but thinner on characterization which makes it hard for me to get into William and Emma's romance. Hakim is my favorite. I'm still going to inhale the rest of these, of course. ...more
The second volume of Emma is just as beautiful as the first - I can't believe Mori's eye for detail and love of the period. There are many more wordless passages in this volume, as we learn about Emma's past in light of many changes at Mrs. Stownar's residence. We also meet William's family and get to hear their opinion of his relationship with Emma. I'm really enjoying this series. It's serious without becoming too dark (at least so far), covering weighty issues of the time. I'm eager to see th ...more

My heart~ Ah such a nice story
“Emma” is a manga about a maid and an upper class gentleman who fall in love and have to fight the Victorian class system to be together. It is a traditional romance narrative, with warm characters and a rollercoaster plot line.
I decided to read this series because I wanted to take a break from hard reading, with some light graphic novels. I was drawn to this series because it is set in the Victorian era, which is one of my favourite historical settings.
“Emma” is a sweet story. The writing, h

First read of 2017 and first of my delve into manga. I'm not sure because of my limited experience, but something tells me this set the bar high in the art category. It was so lovely. I'll admit that whenever I'm consuming visual stories, I tend to skip around the art and my eye finds the words first. Not so with Emma. I was reveling in the art and it felt like it flowed so easily from one panel to the next.

The story was anywhere from fine to cute. The most touching parts were really about Emma

Sweet but sad Emma leaves William and London and lands a job with a wealthy German family. William throws himself into his upper class life, reluctantly, barely noticing the eligible socialites mooning over his rich, handsome self.

Mori-san has a lovely way of telling a story with pictures. The story is more engaging with Emma in frame, as it is hard to warm up to William. Mori takes some liberties in that most of the characters look alike regardless of age. This pays off, however, when Emma’s ho

Downton Abbey meets manga... The saga continues. In this volume, William's high class family shows their disproval of his relationship with Emma, the maid of another household. The volume ends with circumstances such that Emma has to leave, and they just miss each other several times and do not get the chance to say goodbye. ...more

Maid Emma and Lord William get closer, but Lord William's father adamantly refuses to accept their union.

The death of a friend lends weight and grief to this volume. Emma has to return to her former home in the country so the couple may never see each other again. Sigh (soft sigh, where you know that all will turn out right in the world). I'll be reading the next volume.

I enjoyed the 2nd volume a lot more than the first. The journey follows Emma's relationship with William and develops. Overall, it was quite an enjoyable read and might carry on with the next volume of the book. ...more

That death broke my heart a lot more than I originally thought it would.

Also, (view spoiler) I am excited to see how time changes the both of them.

Emma is a bit too much of a tragic heroine for my case. Suppose it does give a very Victorian vibe to the story!

A reread.
I can't believe I got a little bit too much of emotion reading the volume 2.....
Guess because now I'm old enough so I could more understand and relate to the story....

Impressive! I cried a little bit! It just goes to show that I love seeing protagonists' flashbacks! Also love the conversations and events that took place in chapter 11. You will see what I mean when you read it 😁📖 ...more

This quite an enjoyable series. I wish there were more historical manga like Emma...
Douglas Cootey
I am not sure where to begin with this review without using spoilers. Volume 2 was simply better. It was heart breaking and frustrating and exciting. Emma's background story was moving. The illustration was breathtaking. The ambience and mood of this period piece was engaging. Kaoru seems to be picking up steam. Notable in this volume, Kaoru has begun to break from her standard perpendicular panels, but only to emphasize setting, not action. It's a stylistic difference I appreciate.

Be sure to re
It picked up! Who'da thought. I got the backstory the first volume sorely lacked, and then some. We see some great progession from our main two characters--William and Emma--in a very short amount of time. And they've become a pair I can actually say I'm invested in. After the events in this volume, however, I worry the story will dry up for a while. I am pressing on to volume 3 in hopes it won't. With raw and hurt feelings come acts of desperation; and while I can also see our couple sitting do ...more

Loved it! Although I didn’t like volume no. 1, “Emma, Volume 2” was fantastic. I loved the rich attention to detail given both in the dialogue and in the illustrations. I loved the flow of the story and the situations the characters faced. It may be an unusual topic and setting for a manga, but I for one loved it this time around!

Emma is a maid. William is an aristocrat. They’re in love, but because of divide between classes they can’t be together. Emma’s mistress supports her and hopes the best
