Akagami no Shirayukihime

Akagami no Shirayukihime

Shirayuki is a spunky pharmacist with bright, apple-red hair unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Even the prince of the kingdom she lives in is entranced by her locks, and demands that she become his concubine. Not wanting to be viewed as an object prized purely for its novelty, Shirayuki flees civilization and heads towards the forest. Here, the girl meets the charming Zen, who rescues her from Prince Raji's clutches and reveals that he is a prince as well. The two become close friends, and Shirayuki decides to return to Zen's castle with him, to pursue her dreams. But becoming a palace pharmacist isn't easy, especially since her unusual hair color and close relationship with the prince tend to draw unwanted attention...

If you like Romeo and Juliet then check out Akagami no Shirayukihime. Both story's have that fairy tale imagery. Akagami no Shirayukihime is kind, romantic, and draws you in. An Romeo and Juliet are the same exact way. And while Romeo and Juliet is more of a tragic romance both stories are similar. Both have that connecting line.

If you liked Romeo x Juliet or Akagami no Shirayukihime, check out the other for more romance set in a fantasy world. Both have great fairy tale atmospheres with determined female protagonists.

Still didn't really felt like typing something, cause I'm not the only one and does really anybody read this? not that I mind but I never do so.

But well both are really great romance story's and I recommend them both RomeoxJuliet who doesn't know it from William Shakespear, but well this is with a little twist still a tragic end though Oh no spoilers!!! And well, Akagami no shirayukihime also snowwhite with the red hair, it is not something like snowwhite if you watch it for that don't because it is not a anime variation on it but it is still very lovely!!

I think that you liked either one of these animes you might like the other one. They are similar in that they are a type of romance animes. Also they have two unlikley characters that fall in love with each other and they would do almost anything for each other no matter the cost to them selves.

The World is Still Beautiful

The World is Still Beautiful

Politics make for strange bedfellows, especially when you're a Princess, where bedding some strange fellow may be your duty to your country. Which is how Nike, fourth Princess of the Rain Dukedom, finds herself being shipped off to marry the King of the Sun Kingdom after losing a game of chance with her older sisters. And if it wasn't bad enough that King Livius is apparently a power-mad potentate who's managed to conquer most of the world in a few short years, Nike even manages to get herself mugged just as soon as she arrives! But then something strange happens and Livius turns out to be… well, not nice, but at least not exactly what Nike expected. There are sinister forces at work in the kingdom that can only be defeated if both young royals can find a way to work together. The future of both kingdoms and the world depends on a diplomatic relationship becoming something even more powerful in THE WORLD IS STILL BEAUTIFUL!

They're both touching romantic story in a slow paced (although Romeo x Juliet is a tragic one). The setting are both in a era of Kingdomhood where monarchy of royalty rules. They both have fantasy theme in their story. The heroine are both not so much feminine(not a damsel in distress type) where they can atleast protect themselves in some ways in case of danger. The story also shows the character development of male protagonist through getting to know their famale partners.

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.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

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?

Gimblewart Gimblewart says...

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 !!

In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake.

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

MugiwaraMarius MugiwaraMarius says...

Le Chevalier D'Eon and Romeo X Juliet both blend sword fighting action with political intrigue and a lot of back stabbing.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

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.

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

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.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

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.

skitxophrenic skitxophrenic says...

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.
