* HeirClubForMen: [[spoiler: it's literally stated that Capulet daughters get sacrificed to Escalus to sustain Neo Verona and keep it afloat, meaning that only men have a chance of inheriting the throne.]]

* BilingualBonus: The wanted posters for the Crimson Whirlwind are in Italian. Also, during the church scene in episode 11, the aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" from Handel's ''Rinaldo'' opera plays; the lyrics go "Let me weep my cruel luck and sigh for freedom".

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Episode 23 showcases Juliet and Romeo fighting against each other due to clashing differences. Episode 24? The second half is a WhamEpisode and MoodWhiplash all at once. [[spoiler:You just know that this anime is going to end horribly, but when Romeo dies first to protect Juliet, and then Juliet sacrifices herself to save the floating colony, you realize the ending was a TearJerker waiting to happen]].

** [[spoiler: Leontes]] does this during a flashback, as he [[spoiler: tells Portia that he has massacred everyone in the Capulet clan.]]



* PuppyLove: Antonio and Regan. Way too cute.



* RomanticFalseLead: Hermione, who initially comes off as an unfortunate victim of circumstance, but at some point shows her {{Yandere}} side. Unlike others, she ''does'' get better. Subverted, also. We were led to believe Tybalt would be a male Paolo of the KissingCousins variety at the beginning, but this doesn't happen.
* RomanticRunnerUp: Hermione is a female version of this; while Romeo was never particularly interested in her, her only flaw was perhaps being too accepting of Romeo forgetting about meeting her whenever he ran into Juliet, at least until she gets stuck on the wrong end of BreakTheCutie...

''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).
