Manga Classics: Emma
Jane Austen, Crystal Chan, Stacy King, Po Tse

Just in time for the 200th Anniversary, Manga Classics: Emma brings Jane Austen's classic tale of youthful folly and romantic exuberance to a modern audience with this beautiful, new manga adaptation. The impulsive match-making of Emma Woodhouse delivers both humor and heartache through the gorgeous artwork of manga-ka Po Tse (Manga Classics: Pride and Prejudice). - Manga Classics editions feature classic stories, faithfully adapted and illustrated in manga style, and available in both hardcover and softcover editions. Proudly presented by UDON Entertainment and Morpheus Publishing.

I have finally ventured into the incredible world of Manga. As soon as I saw that some of my favorite classics are being adapted I knew it was time. 

 It took me a little bit to get used to the different way it's supposed to be read, but once I did I loved it!
The adaptation of the story was very well done. I felt like everything that needed to be in the story was there. I really enjoyed looking at the character model pages as well. I was able to see all of the details and all of the work that went into each and every character. The illustrations were just perfect! Emma, Mr. Knightley, and Frank Churchill were so perfectly depicted. Mr Woodhouse was also exactly as I remember him! It was so great reading this wonderful classic again with a modern take. 

After finishing Emma I am completely hooked! I enjoyed everything about this delightful adaptation. The story, the illustrations, and even though it was very different from anything I've read I was completely enraptured.

I must now scour the internet for Les Miserables and Pride and Prejudice because I must have them.
