Hello! I just thought I would start a thread about Romeo X Juliet...which is a new anime I have fallen in love with (especially Romeo!) and i don't think anybody is talking about it yet! I have seen 5 episodes - i don't know how many there are - but only two were subbed so i didn't understand episodes 3-5 but oh well still loving it! So here's the place to be if you have any information on getting subbed episodes (please!) or just general comments about Romeo!...oh and Juliet...
Romeo X Juliet trailer
I've added a picture of Romeo to attract more people to this anime...it should work!

looks really interesting. I love the romeo and Juliett story
is it loosly based or very accourate to the original story?
It's not the true story except for the names and the love between Romeo and Juliet
Although it's not like the true story i love this anime:3 And thank you coolitman for this thread
The anime is made by Gonzo and it looks great!
There are 5 episodes out but it's not know how much it will be in the end.
On Anime News Network they have 7 titel names
There are for now:2 subs from Shinsen-Subs in english
You can get fresh raws every Thursday(correct me if i'm wrong) on saiyamans site.
The subs are on: tokyotosoho.com (just search:Romeo) or on Shinsen-Subs site.
Now my question: the umai subs are they in english? coz when i downloaded one it didn't show any subtitels.

you can get up to four episodes on Anime-eden.com but i am not sure if they are subbed yet but they usually only put up subbed stuff so i may check that out...and i will try to get back to you on that one! and sorry Gorzka i don't know anything about the umai subs...
also people little fact - Willy (Shakespeare) in Romeo X Juliet is voiced by Kakashi-senseis voice actor...as Kakashi sensei is my lover i was very suprised when i discovered his alter ego is the Bard himself...
For anyone who wants an accurate brief description of this anime:
Imagine the story of Romeo and Juliet. Now take away all the events that actually happen, leaving only a few characters and the premise. Now turn the anime dial, which only goes up to 10, to ELEVEN. Now reconstruct the world and let event happen in their natural way.
This is Romeo x Juliet, and as a guy I can safely say it's awesome for everyone (but would definitely be classified as shoujo).
The trailer really looks good!!!
Er...wait... was that a dragon/unicorn or whatever in there?
Is that why guys watch this - it seems to have more fighting scenes than the normal Romeo & Juliet story?
Guess I'll have to watch it soon and hopefully the subs will continue to the end.
well...i don't know why guys watch it...the fight scenes aren't a central plot but very good nontheless, I would say from what I know (2 subbed episodes and 3 RAWand don't understand japanese to that extent) that it's a bit darker than the original story because of Juliet being an orphan and what have you...I like the romantic aspect because in my opinion there isnt enough in the only other anime i watch (Naruto) but I think it gives a lot to everyone so give it a try!
still having no luck with subs so if anybody wants to point me in the right direction...
I FOUND A PLACE WITYH SUBBED EPISODES FOR THOSE ILLITERATE IN JAPANESE!!!
www.crunchyroll.com has subbed up to and including episode 6, you have to be a member but it's free and there's loads of other animes there to watch too...just search Romeo x Juliet and it should come up.
Have fun! I love episode 6 the guy at the end is sooo hot I can't wait to see more of him!
Oh, sorry. I have overlooked that you don't know about the fansubs.
Umai is subbing:
http://umai.keepsilence.org (torrents: http://depthstrike.com/~umai/ )
You can also always look here as long as the series isn't licensed:
Don't know about www.crunchyroll.com ... will check that out later, thanks^^
Umai's sub are encoded in .mkv...so to those who doesn't have the right DivX codecs won't be able to see the subtitles. But believe me, Umai makes great fansubs.
Now I must go watch episode 6!! XD Rawr!
Oh yea...O,o where can I possibly download the manga of this? T_T
i don't know if there is a manga for this...anybody know?
this thread seems a little dead BUT i have to shout out about episode 7!!! it was sooooo good...i'm not gonna spoil anything but seriously it was the best episode ever!!!
Hey! I heard you!!! This series is so good!! I watched the first 5 episodes in one day, and this series is truely pure love <33333333.
Yeah, I'm now so into this series, and the appearance of Tybalt is indeed interesting....if it really follows the romeo & juliet story...oh no...Got to watch ep 7 like you mentioned..
Had not heard of the manga for it, although it was published in some shojo magazine...I think...
I am going to put up the OP/ED for this anime too...love the ending song...
And for those who had not seen this, I highly recommend this anime..it has potential to be the shojo anime series for this year!

coolitman you're absolutely right about episode 7 was the best!! OMG Tybalt was so hot<3 and he's black dragonhorse(let's call does creatures like that ) and the ending just KAWAII
I like the OP song a lot the ending is also great
It's kinda cool a soft op and a rock ed
Now with smexy Tybalt and more RxJ evolving love this anime is pure shojo stuff.
Gorzka - dragonhorse is good and i totally agree with u about Tybalt...he just oozes hot manliness!!! even his dragonhorse was hot and omg the ending of the episode when romeo was all out of breath "juliettoh" aaaahhhh i just wanted to scream! i love this anime more each week!
