There are many, many, many adaptations of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, so when I received this manga classics version from Udon Entertainment and Netgalley (in exchange for a fair review), I went in with my eyes open. The text is mostly faithful to the classic tale of enemies who overcome their misunderstandings to fall in love, but the charm of this version is in its illustrations. The artwork is beautiful, and reminds me of the work done by REM for Gail Carriger’s Soulless manga adaptations in its attention to detail. I have to say that the egalley I received of this work was difficult to read at times because the copy lost some of the clarity necessary to read the text, but my familiarity with the story made up for this. Despite this limitation, or maybe because of it, I think this would be a good entry point to manga for those who are unfamiliar with it. It takes some practice for novices to get used to the “backwards” reading style that it requires, so some familiarity with the text will allow new readers to focus more on the style of reading and on the artwork, which is this particular adaptation’s greatest asset.
