YMMV: Romeo X Juliet
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Composed by the same guy who did the music for Final Fantasy Tactics!
  • Die for Our Ship: Poor Hermione. She did get better, Romeo/Juliet fanbrats!
  • Ho Yay: Francisco certainly loves teasing Curio. There's also a bit of it between Benvolio and Romeo, and arguably some more with Romeo and Petruccio. With the ladies, Emilia admits attraction to girl!"Odin".
    • Episode 18, saw Francisco and Curio sharing a candlelit dinner rife with homoerotic Sub Text. Also, who can forget this little gem, said someplace between episodes 7 and 9:
      Francisco: (to Curio) Unfortunately for you, I'm not interested in men.
    • William also teasingly flirts with Curio at least once
    • Also worth noting the Les Yay of the, Squicky variety between Ophelia and Juliet in one of the last episodes. It's even lampshaded in the commentary track of the English dub:
      [Commentary Track] "Brina Palencia, [voice of Juliet] Just had a very special moment with Jamie Marchi [voice of Ophelia].
    • Juliet and Hermione get a solid moment of Les Yay, in a bedroom no less, in episode 16.
  • Idiot Plot: The Capulet faction can be forgiven for keeping Juliet hidden and making her pose as a boy, since everyone knows the last remaining Capulet is female and they can't afford to leave Neo Verona in itself. Keeping Juliet Locked Out of the Loop in regards to her own heritage until her Dangerous Sixteenth Birthday, however, is downright idiotic since it means Juliet is completely unprepared to become the leaderess of the group and command them against the tyrannical Montague regime, and it takes a HEAVY mental/emotional toll on her. And they're shocked and even angry that the poor girl is completely shocked and unable to handle it at first? Please!
  • It Was His Sled: Romeo and Juliet die. If you weren't expecting that then you've never taken a high school English class.
  • The Load: Poor Benvolio. Though at least he's not a Damsel Scrappy.
  • Love It or Hate It: It's gained this following after it was finish with many loving it for being a creative anime adapation of something not truly done before, while others hate it for changing stuff and the ending. Some sit in the middle but it's not often to see those middle grounded people.
  • Superlative Dubbing: Yep, there's some inevitable Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe, but it's worth enduring it to hear many of Shakespeare's original lines (from more than just Romeo and Juliet) paired with beautifully animated scenes and wonderfully delivered by some very talented voice actors.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending, of course. The duel in the penultimate episode. Also almost any scene of Romeo and Juliet happy together, because of the inevitable ending.
  • Toy Ship: Antonio and Regan. Way too cute.
