Funimation has to be credited for their ability to drop anime DVD collections in a timely manner. After all, patience may be a virtue but who wants to wait around to find out how a story they're waist-deep in concludes? Such was the case with Romeo x Juliet. The first collection (known as the Romeo Collection) hit streets on June 23rd and now the concluding set is at our collective disposal as of August 11.

Romeo x Juliet from Funimation breaks the 24 total episodes into a pair of two-disc sets. The second of which (reviewed here) is known as The Juliet Collection and contains episodes 13-24. Packaged within an appropriately artistically decorated cardboard exterior slipcase is a pair of thin disc cases each containing a single dvd (with 6 episodes on each).

Total runtime comes in at 290 minutes and the show wears a conservative TV PG (13+) rating, based presumably more on the grander adult oriented themes (we do all know how this tale will end) than it is language, sexual scenarios, or gore.

Language options are standard fair sub & dub meaning the original Japanese dialog track is presented (in stereo) as well as the option of instead watching an English dub (in Dolby Surround 5.1). Finally English subtitles are available with either vocal option.

Extras include an English actor commentary track over Act (episode) 24, textless songs, and a host of Funimation trailers on the second disc.

As was the case with the first collection, the source material here deviates from the original William Shakespeare play while retaining many of the same fundamental concepts of forbidden love, dictatorship governments, and the agony of heartbreak.

I've always been a fan of the classic play of the same name, so I was excited that an anime adaption was in the works. But I never expected anything like this... I've been enjoying anime for many years, and I don't think any other series I've watched has moved and warmed my heart more than "Romeo x Juliet."

William Shakespear's classic tale of these two star crossed lovers is taken to a whole new level of excitement, action, suspence, and romance--all housed within a two volume DVD set. Romeo is a young noblemen and the son of the ruthless Prince Montegue who has brought the helpless and innocent people of Neo Verona to their knees. Juliet is the last surviving member of the slain Capulat family and Neo Verona's only hope for a brighter future. Although they are supposed to despise one another, these two young people simply cannot deny the strong love that they instantly share for each other upon their first meeting. But as they fight to keep their love alive against all odds, will they also be able to end the reign of the vicious tirant Prince Montegue?

This adaption is very loosly based on the play, so not everything is entirely by-the-book. But in the end, the moral of the story is still the same: that the power of true love is strong enough to overcome all obsticals, no matter what.

What more can I say, other than this is an amazing buy! But words really don't do this anime justice--You have to WATCH it. I highly reccomend this product. It may be a little pricey, but you will not regret it!

This part of the serious had a ton of issues in my opinion. Compared to the first part. My overall rating goes towards the serious. Spoiler alert. If you are watching this serious please do not read all of this. If you want to know my issue before you start then here you go. This series makes some huge jumps from the down to earth to the plain crazy. There is no leading up to this. Just this sudden apocalypse! It really is insane. This series was so strong. The voiceovers were great and the music I found astounding. The fighting picks up and everyone suddenly begins to feel the consequences of their choices. It made me think of my own choices. A lot of people feel that you shouldn't connect to shows but shows in my opinion are like a book. I need to get into it...if I can't then there is no point. Romeo and Juliet is a story everyone can relate too. Even if you aren't in love are haven't been. You can see the friendships build and how easy they crumble. How new worlds are made. It truly is astounding and can make people think and even inspire younger crowds to join new movements. This show brought these ideas to me and they can do the same for you.

Unlike Shakespeare's R&J, this one redevelops the characters and plot. The two lovers are not as one dimensional and emotionally foolish as the original ones. They have a reason to fight and die for each other. They understand that their love conflicts with social interests but tend to the world's needs first. Instead of madly expressing their love at first, as portrayed in the original R&J, this is magnified towards the end of the story. This shift in love redeems "Romeo & Juliet" as a true love story where you "promise you won't let go."

A great anime that takes the original Romeo and Juliet and gives it a little twist! The artwork is amazing and everything in this set came neatly packaged and very nice! A great buy for those anime lovers out there!
