Spanning a total of 24 episodes across two seasons, this anime adaptation of the manga by Kaoru Mori (A Bride's Story) features direction by Tsuneo Kobayashi (The Twelve Kingdoms, Glass Mask OAV, Super GALS!) and scripting by Mamiko Ikeda (Sgt. Frog, Fruits Basket, Rental Magica). The original manga was honored with an Excellence Prize at the 2005 Japan Media Arts Festival and was released in North America by DC Comics' CMX Manga imprint.
Both seasons of Emma: A Victorian Romance are licensed for English-speaking audiences by and available on DVD from Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment.
