I’m a bit late to the Manga Moveable Feast, but as previously written reviews seem to be acceptable, I’d like to pitch in with my reviews of vols. 1-3 and vols. 4-7 of Emma as well as my review of Shirley.
I think this passage from my review of the second half of Emma sums up what I thought of the series as a whole:
Much of the enjoyment of reading it comes from simply watching the characters go about their business, whether in the drawing room or the scullery. There are nights at the opera, shopping trips in London, and several voluptuous bathing and dressing scenes. In fact, the little bits of business between the main plot elements are some of the best parts of the book.
