Emma is an amazing look into the world of victorian era romance and how class affected you. The main character, Emma, is a hard working woman, and in comes a nobleman who suddenly falls in love with her! William Jones is dead set on Emma, although his obligations get in the way at times. Including a kidnapping!
Why I recommend it for Writers: Kaoru Mori, the author of the series, and a number of other series too, is a phenomenal character writer. The characters are immensely human, and the feeling of whatever society Mori explores comes through aptly. Please, don’t limit yourself to just Emma either; check out Kaoru’s other manga, A Bride Story.
Warnings: Kidnappings, jealous rivals. Other typical romance-y things.

Have you seen this anime? What about it made you want to be a better writer? Do you intend to go shotgun this anime now that I’ve shown it to you? Comment below and tell me what you think!
Since last week, I have had one hell of a bad week. My bike has been stolen. I found a replacement, but spent the last of my money on tires for it, only to find out those tires don’t fit. I have fought with two of my coworkers in a short amount of time, and I have discovered that rewriting The Sorcerer and The Swordsman is far harder than I thought it would be.
