Romeo X Juliet
Anime DVD review

Romeo and the other Montagues had better watch out. Juliet is armed and considered dangerous. They slaughtered her clan in a bloody coup for control of Neo Verona. She's not taking this lying down.

If you're expecting the Shakespeare play in Romeo X Juliet, then you've got another think coming. In this anime series, the Montagues have taken over the fantastic, floating city of Neo Verona. They have all but wiped out the ruling Capulet clan. Juliet is one of the few Capulets left, and she wants revenge. SheĆ­s gone all "Princess Knight" on everyone. Under the guise of a boy named "Odin", she has also taken the sword, and fights for justice as the masked "Red Whirlwind".

Romeo X JulietRomeo Montague has found himself caught in the middle of this political web. He can't abide the tyranny and bloodshed inflicted by his family. All of this, and other circumstances, have entangled him in the life and love of the avenger Juliet.

And what of the tree? At the heart of all of this stands a tree of amazing magic. The great tree Escalus is a source of magic and love. It also helps support the aerial city. The tree is withering and might die. Romeo and Juliet may need to sacrifice their lives, but this time not over a mistake. They might have to give their lives to save the tree of love.

Funimation has brought this highly regarded series to the states. This isn't West Side Story. This is action, fantasy and adventure. Apothecaries need not apply. And, perhaps best of all, Leonardo DiCaprio is nowhere to be found.
