Another Shakespere work gets the anime treatment. And by GONZO, no less.

They just released a trailer today, and this anime looks like it's gonna be really good.

Out of the new series due out next year, next to Nanoha StrikerS, this is the one I have my eye on the most.

Yep, that story you hopefully learned back in your school days will become an anime. So get ready, you lovable anime fans, you! If you liked Gankutsuou, then you should be as excited as I for this next project.

Well it certainly looks good, and it could be done well, GONZO never dissapoints when it comes to production value... but...

Shakespeare is about english language poetry, not just his storylines. I don't see how well this could work without being in english, and even then I would shudder to think of how the voice acting would be. Only anime actually made originally in english I can think of is Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, and that did turn out pretty good. A high quality english language dub could make this interesting, but the jury is still out on this one till I learn more.

Wow some of the animation is amazing, and it looks really good, but my only problem is it looks like they've changed the story. If it's just a little bit then I can deal, but some how Italy is now a floating country, and Romeo rides a winged horse? Though overall it definitely looks cool.

Isn't Basilisk a Romeo & Juliet anime?

Why would we need another?

Othello is probably my fav shakepeare play, either that or hamlet. Othello could actually make a really cool anime if they invested the time in it, and I think it would be a bit more condusive to anime than most of his work.

That and Midsummer's Night Dream. That one screams anime to me.

Also The Twelfth Night - with all the gender confusin and comedy, that's also very condusive to anime.

Cause maybe this time this anime will do Romeo and Juliet justice?
