Emma, by Yoko Hanabusa (based on Jane Austen's book)

EmmaEmma by Yoko Hanabusa, Jane Austen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This shojo is based on Jane Austen's work, Emma and tries to bring us in the atmosphere of the book. It partially manages, I think although pleasant to read, the manga just gives a summary of what Austen is instead trying to depict with her masterpiece.
Emma develops too quickly and comes to the realization of the truth a little bit too sudden for resulting credible, however, the doubts and her personality are very well represented, so much that I found her irritating as in the book (or in the movie).
This is maybe a good way though to introduce young girls to English ;-)
