Another similar anime & manga to YKK

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I found this good series when I was browsing for new anime release, it's called Victorian Romance Emma and it has similar character drawing like YKK.
At first I thought this was just a coincidence, but after downloading several episodes, I found this series to be quite good and in some ways are similar to YKK.
Few days later, I curiously browse the fansub website and found that this series already has a manga version published earlier, so I thought anyone here would interested :
(you can find the torrents for downloads and quite brief synopsis about the anime / manga itself)

Notes : there's also another manga called "Shirley" in their website which they said is also similar to YKK, I haven't read it yet though but I'm planning to.

Emma is a very amazing anime and manga. But I won't say similar to YKK. It is a love story between a maid (of low social class), with a guy of high status in England. It is also a very well drawn manga (by Mori Kaoru). In the first 2 volumes, I would say the storylines is quite relaxing, but it's getting sad in the remaining volumes. For the anime, I found that the soundtracks are very well composed, and as pleasing and relaxing as YKK soundtracks.

I found "Emma" reminded me of YKK a *little*, because of the sparing use of dialog and slice-of-life story. It's a new favorite of mine. But it's a lot faster-paced and structured than YKK.
