When i read Emma, there's a this weird feeling that sometimes made me remember YKK, don't know what is it that tough... Well, just try one of them if you had read the others, maybe you will experience this weird feeling i was talking about.

These two titles don't exactly share the romance element of Emma nor the magical realism of Aria, but they're both essentially very pure slice of life stories that have a mood as light as air. Fantastic locations and lovable side stories have a healing power. Emma is not often quoted to belong to the iyashi-kei subgenre, but I believe the feeling that manifests from it is similar to that of Aria.

A tale set in simpler times, this series gave me a slight Emma vibe in everyday life drama. Anne does not contain nearly as much romance, however, until later in the series.

- Both took place in a rich, historical backdrop and their respective timeframes are not that far from each other. As Emma was set around the 20th century and the latter took place in the Meiji era, albeit a fictional one. - Both share the theme where differences in social status/class become the main obstacle in progressing their relationships.

Set in important historical time periods of a state that was once a major colonial empire based in Europe: 1. Emma is set in Great Britain during the late Victorian era, including the turn towards the 20th century. 2. Rose of Versailles is set in 18th century France, and covers the life of Marie Antoinette as well as related happenings up until her execution during the Reign of Terror. Both are highly based on romance but at the same time are also well-researched representations of these countries during each respective era.

Story-wise these two are miles apart because one was played in a Victorian era and other one is a fantasy. But what makes them both similar is 1) Their gorgeous art style. But it is not the only thing similar between these mangas. 2) Both have a similar way of storytelling. Like while telling the story, sometimes they gave a pause to sympathize with the character, a pause to see the surrounding from a readers perspective, sometimes only a picture tells the story. Both mangakas did a masterful job in that

Both Corset ni Tsubasa and Emma have the same feel when they are read,both have their setting in England and tell about the differences of the lives of women back then. The only difference is that Emma is told in the perspective of a maid, while Corset is told in the perspective of a child of around 15.

Created by same author. Artwork is very beautiful and many scenes are told just by the pictures, there's no need for too many words. The setting of the stories is quite different (Emma takes place in Victorian London and Otoyomegatari in the central Asia), but the creator has great interest for both of those cultures and that shows well in the series; clothes, architecture, items, sceneries and everything else are drawn very detailed and beautifully. Both are historical romances.

Both share similar settings with incredible artwork along with tremendously detailed and accurate portrayal of the tools, instruments and way of life of Europe during their respective periods

Both Ai Yori Aoshi and Emma are romances that are rooted in culture - Japanese for Ai Yori Aoshi, and British for Emma. Both are excellent love stories, and both have some truly great lead characters.

They both set in the 19th Century ,show daily life of that era. Emma set in England while Gesele set in France . Both remind each other in many aspects of the delivery of the story ,they gave me the same vibe right on the begining . You sure will like it if you looking for something similiar.

Although Kuroshitsuji has more of a supernatural and much darker setting, whereas Emma is a romance story, both works take place at the same era and share the same backdrop, Victorian London. Also both revolve around the lives of English aristocracy and they insert some ethnic Indian notes in parts of the story. In a way, the protagonists of both works are fighting with their own "demons" to overcome the obstacles in their way to achieve their goals. Their art is very detailed and beautiful, especially the depiction of the clothes and scenery. So if you enjoy reading novels set in old and elegant environments,  read more

Even though Godchild has supernatural themes and a lot darker story than Emma, they both take place in the Victorian England and London. If you like Victorian England, you'll propably find both of these series very interesting.

In both mangas there are historical elements to it, Emma is set in victorian england and Tokyo Lastochika is set in Japan. Both story revolves around two people on different social classes and their love struggles because of the social hierarchy. Both stories are quite slow paced and have a similar feel to them. Overall both are very enjoyable!

Created by the same author both titles are about young women who are Victorian maids. Shirley has the same look and feel as Emma, but with less romance.
