My ReviewTake your pick. You either like the manga or you didn’t.
I’m on the dislike side.
I believe this is a parody of Pride and Prejudice more than it is an adaption. There are a few parts which are funny and others which are annoying. I found myself wincing more times than I can count because of the exaggeration and inaccuracies.
Did I enjoy the manga at the very least? Can’t say that I did.
1) Elizabeth has no class. The manga portrays a petty, juvenile, and melodramatic heroine.
2) I don’t find the drawings attractive. They were pretty at first sight. Then after a while, the drawing lost its appeal.
3) Mrs. Collins reminds me too much of my mother. I can’t. I just can’t.
