'Manga Classics: Sense and Sensibility' by Jane Austen with adaptation by Stacy King and art by Po Tse is another great addition to the Manga Classics line.
The Dashwood's family fortunes are changed when their father suddenly dies. Sisters Elinor and Marianne live with their mother and are forced to move from their family home. Both find romance, Elinor with Edward Ferrars and Marianne with John Willoughby, but this being Jane Austen, you know there will be bumps along the road to a happy ending.
I have not read the original work (shame on me), but I have seen film adaptations. This adaptation seems very complete, and even covers ground that is not in the films. I've read a couple other adaptations by Stacy King, so I know she is typically very faithful to the original. The art by Po Tse is very much in a manga style. These are great gateway mangas for fans of literature, and great gateways to literature for manga fans. It seems like a win-win to me.
I received a review copy of this manga from UDON Entertainment, Morpheus Studios, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this manga.
