Romeo x Juliet is a Japanese anime television series that first aired in 2007 on CBC. The show is a reimagination of William Shakespeare's classic play, Romeo and Juliet, set in a fictional world of Neo Verona. The anime is a romantic tragedy that follows the story of two young lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, who belong to warring families but fall in love despite the bitter hatred between their clans.

The series is beautifully animated and features stunning landscapes with neo-Gothic architecture, and the attention to detail is fantastic. The characters are well developed, and the main protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, are portrayed as strong, independent figures who are determined to fight for their love.

Romeo Montague is the heir to the Montague family, who betrayed the Capulet clan and seized power over Neo Verona. As the series opens, Romeo is a young and impetuous teenager who cares only about enjoying the freedom that his privileged upbringing affords him. He is torn between fulfilling his family's expectations of him and his love for Juliet. Ayako Kawasumi lends her voice to Juliet Capulet, the last surviving member of the Capulet household. Despite her tragic upbringing, Juliet is a spirited young woman who never gives up on her dreams. Her resilience and determination are infectious, and she is a great role model for young girls.

In this version of Romeo and Juliet's story, the royal family of Neo Verona is under threat from Lord Montague's tyranny. The young lovers must navigate their way through the dangerous political landscape while wrestling with their own rival families. Juliet's nurse, Conrad, takes care of her and tries to help her fight against Lord Montague. The story also features the supporting characters of Francisco, Tybalt, Benvolio, Hermione and Curio, who play a significant part in the unfolding of the story.

Romeo x Juliet is an action-packed show with many sword battles, chase scenes and dramatic confrontations which keep viewers at the edge of their seats. The show has a great soundtrack, with some beautiful original scores and powerful vocals. The opening theme song, "Inori: You Raise Me Up" by Lena Park sets the romantic tone for the show, while the ending theme "Cyclone" by 12012 is a catchy rock song that will have viewers humming it long after the episode has ended. The animation sequences that accompany the opening and ending credits are also impressive and enhance the overall viewing experience of the show.

In conclusion, Romeo x Juliet is a beautifully animated and well-told story that will appeal to audiences who enjoy action, romance, and adventure. Shakespearean purists may find some of the changes to the story hard to digest, but for most viewers, the show manages to capture the essence of the original play while still delivering a fresh take. The relationship between Romeo and Juliet is believable and touching, and their struggle to love each other despite the hatred between their families will tug at the heartstrings of even the most stoic viewer. Overall, Romeo x Juliet is a must-watch for anime lovers who are looking for an emotional and compelling story that has stood the test of time.
