Saikano and Romeo x Juliet are complicated love stories; just like Romeo and Juliet's love, Chise and Seiji's is impossible. They also have in common the idea of running away from reality and to be together, and they both have really sad endings. You'll love it!

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.

Valore Valore says...

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.

There is a forbidden love radiating through both of these anime series.  Romeo X Juliet is along the line of a more historical sense between two warring families while Chobits presents a more technological dilemma between a robot with feelings and a human.

caitlin caitlin says...

Both Chobits and Romeo x Juliet have the theme of forbidden romance (though both are of two very different veins of this), lead characters with their own secrets, and conflicts all pushing the heroine and her love toward tragedy, as the characters fight for a happy ending. If you enjoyed one, you should definitely check out the other.

Canal Canal says...

Both anime have a fantasy setting. Good Witch is set in a fairytale-like country with some weird looking animals while Romeo x Juliet is set on a floating continent where the nobles use flying horses to fly around town. The main heroines are a lot alike. They will do anything to be with the one they love and they are both determined to protect their world.

Both Romeo x Juliet and Good Witch of the West have similar types of main characters.  They are each strong willed in their own ways, especially the heroines.  They are determines to overcome everything for the bond of love they share. 

Sirius no Densetsu

Sirius no Densetsu

Fire Children and the Children of the Water can never be together. Long ago, the God of Water and Goddess of Fire existed together as one entity, until the jealousy of the God of Wind drove a wedge into their relationship. They separated, and it became the law of the earth that their people must never see each other again. Now that the new heirs to the thrones are soon to be crowned, the Prince of the Sea is drawn to the ocean’s surface and meets the beautiful maiden that is the Princess of Fire. A fantastic love is formed between the two, but the flavor is bittersweet when all they can do is hide the fact that they have met. Love is powerful, but is theirs strong enough to withstand the will of the Gods?

"Forbidden Love" is the theme that Romeo x Juliet and Sirius no Densetsu share. They both shape the story and create gripping character development. If you liked one, you'll like the other.

The forbidden love aspect of the main characters in Sirius no Densetsu and Romeo x Juliet are heart breaking to say the least; with tragic overtones running throughout each series.
