Anime Blog 50: Emma: A Victorian Romance

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_(manga)

Emma is a 24 episode Seinen that I watched Subbed.

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I honestly think it's my new favorite anime.

So the basic story is as follows: In Victorian England a maid (named Emma) and the first born son of a nouveau-riche family (named William) fall in love. The show follows their trials and tribulations as they try to be together against all the conventions of society. The story includes an Indian Prince (named Hakim) and William's arranged fiancé Eleanor.

This show was just awesome. There's really no other way to describe it. There were historical trivia facts at the end of each episode and the story itself seems to be an accurate portrayal of the time period (although fictional).  Being a History nut (and having a Bachelor's Degree in the subject), I just can't get over this show. It made me laugh, it made me cry; I was yelling at my computer screen half the time!

I also really like the art style!

Also, Emma's second season has one of my favorite anime endings:

I think it's just so adorable!

So, pros and cons!

Pros:
  • Awesome story
  • Great characters
  • Beautiful ending
  • Historical (almost always a pro!)
  • Pretty art
  • ALL AROUND BEST SHOW EVER!
Lets not even kid ourselves. There are no cons to this show.

So there you have it! Thanks for reading, see you next time!
