Emma: A Victorian Romance Anime Kickstarter Succeeds, Funds S2 Dub

 

Our previous update on Nozomi Entertainment’s Kickstarter campaign to create a dubbed home video release of the Emma: A Victorian Romance anime had it very close to its season 2 goal. We’re happy to follow up and report that the campaign has since concluded successfully, even managing to meet its stretch goal to dub the second season. 

 

The final tally had 1,615 backers coming together to pledge a grand total of $253,834 to bring the project to life. That means the entire Emma anime will be dubbed and released on Blu-ray.

 

Series description: 

 In 19th-century London, class lines are sharply drawn, and the social standing to which people are born dictates the path their lives will follow. Emma, an honest and hardworking young maid, never felt her place in life to be a burden. But then she met William, a member of the gentry and the eldest son of a wealthy family. His warm smile and earnest affection threaten to capture her heart… but can love truly conquer all?

 

This fantastic Victorian tale of an upstairs, downstairs romance is the anime adaptation of Kaoru Mori’s amazing manga of the same name which was honored with an Excellence Prize at the 2005 Japan Media Arts Festival. Kaoru Mori went to extensive lengths to research her period drama and her authentic details are brought through in this amazing adaptation. 

 

Both seasons of the show are available currently on Crunchyroll and VRV in their subtitled versions. You can watch a trailer here:
