''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'' is loosely based on [[WilliamShakespeare William Shakespeare's]] famous play''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. The series also draws a bit on other Creator/WilliamShakespeare plays for both character names and plot elements. The cross-dressing and disguises, and a play within the play that matters to the plot.

* InNameOnly: [[http://pursuedbyabear.net/pbab/377/ Not so much an adaption of the play]] as a story inspired by several of Shakespeare's works as well as drawing on many anime and fantasy tropes. Still good.

As Juliet's sixteenth birthday draws near, she gets into a scrape while acting as the Red Whirlwind and is saved by Romeo Candore Van di Montague, the idealistic son of the prince. The two instantly feel a connection, and can't seem to help crossing paths again and again. You all know where this is going, right?

''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'' is loosely based on [[WilliamShakespeare WilliamShakespeare's]] famous play''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. Emphasis on the "loosely". While the basic plot of the teenage StarCrossedLovers from rival families remains, the resemblance stops about there. The story's moved to a more fantastical setting, the family feud is replaced with a rebellion against an oppressive regime, and characters often resemble their Shakespeare counterpart in name only. Nevertheless, this doesn't stop this series from being good on its own merits.

The series also draws a bit on other Creator/WilliamShakespeare plays for both character names and plot elements. The cross-dressing and disguises reach the point that Romeo meets Juliet three times without realizing that they are the same person. Inevitably, someone else dresses up as the Red Whirlwind. And, of course, there's a play within the play that matters to the plot.

This is generally a serious anime, and features action scenes on a regular basis, though the fights never reach the absurd levels of a lot of {{shonen}} anime. Just don't forget the Dragonhorses! (think: Pegasus).

ItWasADarkAndStormyNight. Lord Leontes Montague, head of the Montague family, systematically cut his way through the ruling Capulet family and their retainers in a bloody coup. Only one member of House Capulet survived: the two-year-old Capulet heiress, Juliet Fiamatta Ars Di Capulet, who was spirited away by the captain of the guard and the few retainers that made it.

Fourteen years later, Lord Leontes Montague is the tyrannical leader of all of Neo Verona. The surviving Capulet retainers are in hiding beneath a theater company run by a sympathetic playwright named [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Willy]]. Juliet is disguised as a boy named Odin, and she has no idea who she really is - all she knows is that she has to dress up as a male and work as Willy's stagehand. Whenever she can sneak out, she fights against the oppressive Montague regime as the Red Whirlwind, a {{Zorro}}-esque vigilante. As the Red Whirlwind, she gets into a bind and is saved by Romeo Candore Van di Montague, the idealistic only child of Lord Montague. Some time later, "Odin's" friend Emilia, Willy's top actress, invites "Odin" to a high-class party with her, thinking that "he" would make a very pretty girl. One case of mistaken identity later, Juliet is alone at the party, where she runs into Romeo again. You all know where this is going, right?

''RomeoXJuliet'' is very loosely based on ''RomeoAndJuliet'', emphasis on the "loosely". While there is still the plot of the StarCrossedLovers from rival families, it shares time with the eventual coup by the Capulet loyalists once Juliet is told her true heritage -- yes, Romeo plays second fiddle as Juliet's love interest. As for the characters...most of them resemble the originals in name only. Nevertheless, that doesn't stop this series from being good on its own merits.

* CosmicHorrorReveal: Towards the end, it becomes clear that the true enemy isn't the murderous Lord Montague, who is slowly descending into cackling, city-burning madness, but rather [[spoiler: the death of Escalus, which is what's holding Neo Verona in the sky: the earthquakes that become much more frequent and ruinous towards the series' climax are the result of Escalus slowly perishing.]]

* TooDumbToLive: For some reason, after Hermione tried to attack Juliet with a rock and told her that she should have perished with her family, everyone thought it was a good idea to let Juliet take care of Hermione and to leave a sharp knife in the same room. That was just a disaster to happen.
