Blast of Tempest

Blast of Tempest

Hakaze, princess of the Kusaribe mage clan, has been betrayed and marooned on an island by her own people. They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic. The deal is made, and the battle that will determine civilization's fate is begun: but who will play the part of its villain, and who its savior?

Both series have a storyline based on shakespears novels

Like Romeo x Juliet is based on the shakespear novel Romeo & Juliet.

Zetsuen no tempest is based on the shakespear novels Hamlet & The Tempest.

BeyBack

Not only do both stories revolve around the hidden/forbidden love theme of Romeo and Juliet, the characters from both animes were portrayed with a Shakespeare character in mind. In the case of Blast of Tempest, however, it doesn't merely feature Romeo and Juliet, but The Tempest and Hamlet as well. Both series quote from Shakespeare multiple times.

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

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.

ef - a tale of memories

ef - a tale of memories

In a high school setting, there are many people whose stories must be told: Hiro, an aspiring manga artist whose view of the world is "missing a certain color," according to himself; his childhood friend Kei, who is vying for his attention; Kyosuke, a photographer and cameraman who seeks to capture true emotion in his work; the ever-cheerful Miyako, who meets Hiro by chance and immediately becomes attached to him; the gentle Renji, unsure of his aspirations to become a novelist; and Kei's mysterious and quiet sister Chihiro, who seems to be a different person every day. As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.

TotallyLovable

Romance is everywhere, not only in fiction; it doesn't exist only in another, imaginary world. The grey everyday life is always waiting for love to paint it colorful.

As we have all heard of the tragic love of Shakespear's Romeo and Juliet, we maybe have wished to find that special someone who is destined to bring us happiness. The anime adaptation Romeo x Juliet is as exciting as the original play, but there is much more magic and mystery in its own cute way. The stories of gentleness, love and passion are not always supposed to be seen on stage. They are everywhere around us; proof for that is one of the most romantic animes ever - ef - a tale of memories. The most valuable thing shown in it is that love is not just a distant feeling but is much closer to our hearts than we think it is.

Uniflame

Both series share the drama romance story and all though a lot of other series cover this genre, with these two series the story also drags you in unlike most average romance series. Both series are of inmense good quality in both story, character development and animation that I'm sure if you have seen one, you will enjoy the other.

Both series are about lovers from different worlds who fight hardships to be together, going against many barriers. While Escaflowne's barriers are physical, and Romeo X Juliet's barriers stem from society, both series have that melancholy that stems from a desperate love.

both anime show the love a boy and girl who go through hardships and fight for righteousness and what they believe

Canal

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.

wolfangel87

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.
