Emma: A Victorian Romance originally aired during the Spring 2005 broadcast season. The series was directed by Tsuneo Kobayashi (Super GALS!, Kurokami the Animation) at Studio Pierrot, with Keiko Shimizu and Yuko Kusumoto (Midori Days, Twelve Kingdoms) providing character designs. Mamiko Ikeda (Maid Sama!, Rental Magica) wrote the scenario.

Right Stuf describes the series as:

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?
