Synopsis

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?

Story: VRE's story is very simple and easy to follow, two people from vastly different social classes fall in love with one another and throughout the series we get to see their trials and tribulations while dealing with it. Forbidden love is nothing new, but that doesn't mean this series is bland in any respect, there are plenty of dealings to keep the story lively. The nice thing, too, is that there is a lot of historical accuracy in the details, it keeps true to the time and doesn't pull any weirdo stuff for gimmick appeal. The story neither drags nor goes by too fast, read more

Romeo x Juliet is a period piece like Emma, though it has a bit more action and has more fantasy anime qualities. If you liked the romanticism in Emma, then you will definitely enjoy this new spin on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Roughly same time (Victorian Romance Emma takes place about 25 years before Kuroshitsuji), same attention to detail and I believe Kuroshitsuji references Victorian Romance Emma in a few things. Otherwise very different, but if you like the era, go for it!
