If they don't portray Emma's maturing from a judgmental and meddlesome young lady to a kinder and more contented young lady, that might partly be because the Emma here starts out fairly nice and kind and sweet. Which makes the whole manga light and enjoyable, and that is not all bad. I suspect my ten-year-old is going to love it.
The language feels more updated and modern than in the previous Manga Classics I've read, which was a little jarring, but I was mostly okay with it.
This is a minor quibble, but I really disliked the goatee they gave Mr. Knightley. It looked like a villain's goatee from a cartoon, and I was not a fan.

If This was a Movie, I Would Rate It: G for clean and unobjectionable.
