Lovely historical manga!

Yesterday, I got the newest volume of manga in the Emma series by Kaoru Mori in the mail!! Woohoo!

This series is by far my favorite manga/anime. It is set in Victorian England and deals with the story of Emma and William. They have many obstacles to overcome in their love for one another as Emma is a maid and William is a member of the gentry.

Isn't it pretty?! Mr. and Mrs. Meredith, Emma's German employers as the cover art for this volume.

Volumes 1-7 chronicle the story of Emma and William while volumes 8-10 are short stories that detail the other characters' lives after the series ends. The best part of volume 10 is the fact that we get to see the marriage between Emma and William. Kawaii!!! ^___^ I can't wait for December when that volume comes out :)

My favorite stories in volume 8:

- Erich and his lost pet squirrel (too cute!)
- How William and Hakim met :)

If you love Victorian England or just anything historically-themed, you don't want to miss the Emma series by Kaoru Mori.
