Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
If you enjoy Romeo x Juliet, it is almost certainly for the romantic drama elements; the drama is the defining quality of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien as well. In both series, the characters are forced into difficult situations in which they must choose between love and some other important parts of their lives. Both shows also have much more to them than mere sappy romance, setting themselves apart from others in their genre.
The main characters in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Romeo X Juliet are forced to choose between the love they share for each other and another defining factor in their lives. The elements of drama and tragedy are present throughout both series. While Romeo X Juliet could be seen as the classic tale of Shakespeare’s play, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien also goes deep into the emotions of the viewers and asks: what would you do in that situation?
It certainly has the romantic troubles as romeo x juliet ^^ Not exactly the same, but similar elements, I reccommend a watch for any romeo x juliet lovers !!

When it comes to renaissance looking like animes... you know, clastles, peasants, swords and shields, those things which make you feel like the old times were better, this 2 animes have lots of them, beautiful backgrounds and nice fighting scenes even when action ain't the backbone of none of them, combined with an awesome soundtrack and like the biggest grudges ever,this is just part of what makes both series good as well as related. so "if you liked ANY, you'd also like: the OTHER" :P
Le Chevalier D'Eon and Romeo X Juliet both blend sword fighting action with political intrigue and a lot of back stabbing.
Romeo x Juliet and Le Chevalier D’Eon have a renaissance feeling to them in animation style and scenery. Each series is filling with feuding families and backstabbing characters.
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
Princess Tutu and Romeo x Juliet both have incredible romantic sotories that have an english style to it. Their unwavering love will have you longing for the couples to be together. Plus the characters are cute. These are both anime that i would totally recomend if you're into romance with english/french style backgrounds.
Princess Tutu and Romeo X Juliet are based on classical works, but with added magic.
More than that, both of them mix light-hearted themes with depressingly dark ones. Relationships are torn apart due to circumstance, or even fate. All while the nicely developed characters are trying to create a world where they can live as themselves.
If you liked one, you'll certainly like the other.
While I prefer Princess Tutu to Romeo x Juliet, I think both are exceptional tales of fantasy which draw from classical tales of literature as their inspiration.
Romeo x Juliet draws from Shakespeare's original tragedy, with many alterations made to weave a more grand scale fantasy action show. Princess Tutu, on the other hand, has many traditional theatrical plays utilized in it's storytelling, such as Cinderella, Swan Lake, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Princess Tutu furthers it's emphasis on these stories with it's use of classical music.
If you're looking for another fantasy show which is based on classical literature but turns it into something new, I'd highly recommend Princess Tutu and Romeo x Juliet.
There is a legend of an angel who fell to Earth many years ago, and was forced to marry a man because he held the key to her only way home. Hundreds of years later, sixteen year old Mikage Aya is the reincarnation of Ceres, the vengeful angel, who must now fight for her life against her family and her own twin brother Aki, the reincarnation of her past evil husband...
Both Ayashi no Ceres and Romeo X Juliet deal with the main character having a hard time coping with what she has to deal with. Even though Ayashi no Ceres is more fantasy-based while Romeo X Juliet is based off of Shakespeare, the two stories both have the same kind of star-crossed love in them.
if you love a good tragic romance story then you're going to love both Romeo X Juliet and Ayashi no Ceres. both stories revolve around a girl who due to reasons beyond her knowledge is thrown into a world of chaos by people out to see her dead. It follows her as she overcomes obstacles one after the other and meets with a man who changes her life. The story also follows the romance between the two main characters very closely as well as the problems that arise to tear them apart. They are both what i believe to be wonderful stories of star crossed lovers that really tugs at the heart strings.
Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?
While the two anime are completely different in terms of characters, setting, and plot, there are one thing they do have in common, their Romeo & Juliet (The originial) themes. The love between Gennosuke and Oboro, and Romeo and Juliet are completely unbroken, even at the end. Although Basilisk is for the more mature audience, both will tug at your heart just the same.
I shouldn't have to explain myself too much here. Both are classic fated lovers stories with a different spin and feel to the timeless theme. Both have a plethora of characters to enjoy and foreshadowing to catch. Basilisk is defintely more violent and raw with a deep backstory, while Romeo x Juliet is lives more in the present and follows the fated lovers. Both are excellent watches and if you liked one, I'd suggest taking a peek at the other.
