A fated love is the central part of both storylines, and both have strong historical roots. Both series have a strong female lead who passes herself off as a man. Whereas Rose of Versailles tries to stick closer to a true historical fiction, Romeo x Juliet takes Shakespeare's original idea and runs with it.

I believe that Rose of Versailles and Paradise Kiss are very similar; they are more mature than most anime and don't have teens as the main characters. Both revolve around romance and women who are trying to learn about love, have great character development, beautiful male and female characters, a lot of subplots, and will definitely get you addicted. Rose of Versailles is more historical and takes place during the French Revolution, and Paradise Kiss will give you more of a view inside the world of fashion. If you are looking for something more mature with 20+ year old characters, these are definitely something to watch.

Both series show epic fights in an old fashioned anime style. The main characters in each anime have a comparable devotion to their country and leaders, and will lead fights to save them.

While the main theme of these two series is considerably different they both take place in Pre-Industrial France and cover their respective time periods with some historical accuracy. In both there is the theme of social injustice and the scars it leaves on people. There is plenty of drama in these series and the artwork invokes an old school ambience that is very similar. Furthermore, both deal with forbidden loves; Rose of Versailles deals with class differences while Song deals with the growing romantic attachment between two boys. These are bittersweet anime through and through. RoV focuses both on political aspects as well as individual conflicts with plenty of history, and Song deals almost exclusively with the tortuous relationship between the two main characters in a very slow paced and poignant manner.

Both Kai Doh Maru and Rose of Versailles tell the story of a woman that has been raised as a man. Although the contexts are different and the lengths differ greatly, they both show the conflicting aspects of the characters' femininity compared to their manly duty.
