Wow this show was amazing. I picked it up kind of on an impulse. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is one of my most favorite plays and what little I saw of this anime series intrigued me.
This series uses Shakespeare's play as a template. Romeo and Juliet are still star-crossed lovers and their families are feuding. The feud is more fully explored in this series. More so than any other adaptation of the classic.
A lot of liberties are taken. Juliet has more of an active role in the story. This girl is now a warrior and appears to be of a much stronger physical strength as compared to the male lead, Romeo.
The fantasy world the characters live in never upstages the character driven drama that is presented.
A highly recommended series if you ever get a chance to view it.
