really the play sux since it makes no sense since even though the two families hate each other shakespear never really explains y and even if they hate each other they should have allowed their chilren to marry one another to end the hatred and more importantly create a larger more powerful and richer family, it would been understandable to try to sop their child if they were marrying someone from a poor worthless family

and the ending in the anime is alot better
the main reason is that the play one suxed like hell and the reason i say that is because how stupid can u be to kill urself over someone u bearly no even thoguh u love that person and even though juliet took some drug/poison that made her seem dead she still should have been breathing and had a pulse so for the people to not know she is dead means they r really stupid or their science during tat time really sucked

and for those u think shakespears thing was original it really isnt it was just a modification of a roman or greek story about young man and woman who lived in adjacent mansions and their rooms were sort of attached to one another and there was a crack in the wall that allowed them to talk but when the family found out they prevented it and the two people decided to meet outside somewhere but the girl got there early and a lion found her and she dropped a scarf or something and ran away and when the guy saw the girl's thing covered with the blood from the lion's meal he thought she was eaten to he killed himself then the girl saw him and she killed herself and their blood was soaked into a mulberry tree and made it's fruit the color it is

though the story is obviously fake and also stupid the romeo and juliet is just a crappier or just as crappy imitation of an ancient story

I really liked it...it was well thought out and well executed. It's not a re-make, it's just a different interpretation of the the original! it ranks up there with the likes of Gankutsuo: The Count Of Monte Cristo, which was a truly amazing piece of Anime! Classic Literature IS NOT 4 every one...it takes a certain mind set to understand and appreciate!

I liked both the play and the anime but prefer the anime. There was more feeling in it but that might be because I've only read the play instead of watch it. >.< The whole entire time I watched the anime, I was hoping they would change the ending but alas...oh well. I think I liked it better when they kept the ending, if they changed it, it would've been weird.

to all those idiots who liked the original better or thinks that anime sux in comparison all I have to say is ur dumasses
i read the stupid play before and it suxed and the characters lacked realistic traits and common sense and if u think the play is for a suppose to be mature than ur more of a dumass than i can imagine since the characters were pretty young espicially juliet she she was wat like 12 which is a child so the play is not mature at all the story suxed and i hated how stupid the people were
and no offense to shakespear lovers his story sux not fit for the modern society as the way it is, the storyline and characters all imature brainless morons seriously i have read like like 5 of his plays and all were stupid and being forced to read his plays is school is even more stupid since it teaches students nothing and english it is in is no longer in use in normal society so the whole thing is just a watse of time
the anime was alot better than the stupid play


I agree with u (that anime is better than the play/novel)

but the novel is good though and btw thats one of the "3 books" ive read in my entire life

1. Romeo and Juliet (shakespear)
2. Othello (shakespear)
3. The Da vinci code (dan Brown)

Better than the original one....since the ending of the anime makes a bit more sense (sci-fi-wise)
