An interesting exchange in a far away corner of the internets I found this morning:
If I hated the original Romeo and Juliet, will I like the new Romeo X Juliet? I hear it’s very different so it might be different enough that I’ll actually enjoy it. But if it’s “for the fans”, then I want to know to pass on this one.
And the reply:
I hated the play too. The language was beautiful to me, but the main characters were a bit too 2-Dimensional and a lot of their actions made me crazy.
I was completely shocked at how much I loved this anime. Every single character is more fleshed out and interesting, and the women don’t just sit there making the situation worse. In fact, Juliet kicks ass.
I just finished it, and highly recommend a watch with the english dub. The voice actors did a great job.
This is all my opinion though. *^^*
Ah, internets, you’re so cute(1)! Nevar change.
(1) I mean, “ah, internets, you’re so cute!!!!!! o^__^o”.
