Romeo X Juliet

on 9/12/2013

At the beginning of the story, Leontes Montague massacres everyone in the Capulet family except for a young Juliet. After the death of the Capulets, Montague rules over Neo Verona with a tyrannical hand. Juliet grows up in hiding in Neo Verona, disguised as a boy named Odin. The series begins fourteen years after the massacre of the Capulets, and Montague's men are on a hunt for Juliet, who is now a teenager. Juliet/Odin takes on the secret identity of "The Red Whirlwind," a Robin Hood type figure who rescues the common folk from Lord Montague and his iron-fisted rule. One day, while on the run from Montague's men in her Red Whirlwind disguise, Juliet/Odin falls off a ledge. Luckily, Romeo is riding by on his Dragon Steed and rescues her. Romeo is the son of Lord Montague, but he does not share his father's beliefs; he is also being forced into an unwanted engagement with a young woman named Hermione. Through chance encounters, Juliet and Romeo meet and fall for each other. Unfortunately, on Juliet's sixteenth birthday, she learns that she is really a Capulet, and how the Lord Montague slaughtered her family. She also learns that Romeo is Lord Montague's son. The rest of the story focuses on how Romeo and Juliet overcome these revelations and how their relationship grows. William Shakespeare himself even makes some appearances in the story. In many respects, the story of this manga is similar to Shakespeare's original, but there are some changes, some of which are described in the plot synopsis in this review, while others are being left unsaid to try to avoid accidentally providing potential spoilers.

Product Overview

Neo-Verona was once peacefully ruled by the Capulet family, but the rival house of Montague led a coup against the Capulets, wiping them out. Fourteen years later, Lord Montague rules Neo-Verona with an iron fist. But there is hope for the suffering citizens: Juliet Capulet survived the massacre and now turns her sword against the wealthly Montagues in an effort to aid the poor. When she meets the son of Lord Montague at the Rose Ball, she discovers that he is similarly disturbed by his father's cruelty. As Juliet finds herself falling in love with her sworn enemy, she is conflicted...
Is there any hope for a love that crosses enemy lines?
