Paradise Kiss

Paradise Kiss

Yukari is a typical high school student on the fast track to attending a university, but her boring life leaves much to be desired; that is, until a motley crew of fashion design students ask her to model their new clothing line: Paradise Kiss! Now, Yukari must choose if she will reject the life her mother has laid out for her, and start making choices on her own for the first time.

Romeo x Juliet and Paradise Kiss are both love stories. The character designs are different, but they have in common the fact that they are both very beatiful and full of details.  They also have in common the idea of a love story that is not too sickly sweet or silly, and have girls who are very determined and not stupid due to their destiny or duty.  They also have sad endings.

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive.

Romeo X Juliet, just like Vampire Hunter D, has an element of forbidden love and a very sad and tragic story line.  If you are like me you will cry at some parts.  Both stories have very good graphics that stand the test of time and surpass romanticism.

Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

The main characters in each of these series face an opposition to the fact that they are in love. There is a constant driving force that is trying to separate each pair; what they believe, and the area in which they live, separate them. Romeo X Juliet takes place in a gothic setting, whereas Princess Mononoke is more rural and deals with a mystical aspect of the world.

The divine mandate of society has always played a role in shaping the lives and deaths of those who breathe under her care; yet while being subjected to this mandate, can these existences break away and stand on their own? Such is the tale of Romeo x Juliet and of Victorian Romance Emma.

They are wonderful tales of differing golden eras (Shakespearean and Victorian respectively) that gave birth to countless classics that have been immortalized for eternity. A love that cannot be, social conflicts against the individual, and the repression of one's own true self ultimately leads to the question of manifesting one's own destiny. These are what forms the foundations of Victorian Romance Emma and Romeo x Juliet, as viewers of contemporary times, these classics embody the unison of the anime realm and golden eras of literature. Thus, finding fulfillment in one series certainly results to gratification in the other.

If you liked Romeo x Juliet you might want to check out Howl's Moving Castle. What made the plot of Romeo x Juliet so good was the underlying struggle of the two lead roles trying to develop a relationship that most people said couldn't work. Howl's Moving Castle is the same- with Howl and Sophie being from two very different backgrounds. Also, the scenery and unique flavors of both these anime are similar. Gonzo spices things up in RxJ with a floating city and flying horses, while Miyazaki uses a walking castle and a talking fire in his piece. And the last plus to watching Howl's Moving Castle- it's short... so you don't have to sit through an entire series to decide if you like it or not!
