Fans of Emma: A Victorian Romance may be interested to know that Nozomi is running a Kickstarter Project to create a dubbed Blu Ray edition of the first season.

Rewards include postcards, access to production information all teh way up to special cosplay costumes by designed Jez Roth.

The project is the first attempt by Nozomi to bring niche titles to Blu Ray. Unfortunately the disc is Region A, but if you're an anime fan that likes to import, this could be for you.

Synopsis:

n 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?

This fantastic Victorian tale of an upstairs, downstairs romance is the anime adaptation of Kaoru Mori’s amazing manga of the same name which was honored with an Excellence Prize at the 2005 Japan Media Arts Festival. Kaoru Mori went to extensive lengths to research her period drama and her authentic details are brought through in this amazing adaptation. 

The animated series features direction by Tsuneo Kobayashi (The Twelve Kingdoms, Glass Mask OAV, Kurokami The Animation, Super GALS!), scripting by Mamiko Ikeda (Fruits Basket, Princess Tutu, Gravitation), music by Kunihiko Ryo (Yona of the Dawn, The Twelve Kingdoms, The Story of Saiunkoku, Tegami Bachi, Fantastic Children) and production by Studio Pierrot (Fushigi Yuugi, Urusei Yatsura, The Twelve Kingdoms, Yona of the Dawn).
