5 Stars

This is the first classic adaptation I’ve read and Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. At first, I was a bit anxious about taking this book, but I really wanted to know how this great book full of life struggles, dark moments and love will be portraited in a manga… I am so happy I did take this book ❤

This was made brilliantly and the story of Jane Eyre shines beautifully here. The artwork shows the emotions of the story in an incredible way, making the reading even more powerful and emotional. We also get to see the Victorian era come to life in the clothes and the homes, all wonderfully drawn and they really made this small details in their art which made reading this adaptation, even more, fun. The illustrations are just so charming and captivating and it captures the essence of all the characters brilliantly.

Overall, I was truly impressed with this adaptation and I can’t wait to read more of my favorite classic adaptions ❤
