Victorian Romance Emma Second Act
So Victorian Romance Emma is about to be starting very soon. This is an anime that I have been really looking foreward to as the the first season was absolutely wonderful, but the ending left me disatisfied, which is why I am thrilled about season two. Emma is the story about a maid living in Victorian England who falls in love with a nobleman named William. Of course there class differences is what keeps them apart, and by the end of season one Emma leaves London and William behind. William in turn engages himself to a proper young english noblewoman to appease his father. That is where we ended with season one so I am fully expecting season two to end as the manga ended hopefully. Emma is a simple love story with a lot of depth and complexity all at the same time. In a market saturated with magic girls, mecha and shinigami animes, Emma is a breath of fresh air. I hope you will all give this one a chance it truly is a hidden gem.
Update: As of June 30th 2007, Right Stuf International has annouced that they have licensed Season 1 and 2 of Emma. I regret to inform you however that this series will not recieve an english dub; As much as I wanted to see this series stateside, I am immensly disappointed that a truly wonderful series like Emma is being neglected a dubbed version. As I have stated on several occasions I am not a sub purest and do enjoy dubs when done properly. If anyone else feels the same as me please feel free to politely express your opinion to RightStuf international at www.rightstuf.com.
