Review: I thought that this adaption of the anime was not all that good and had no real depth to it. It was as if it was rushed, and re-telling of Romeo and Juliet  needs time to sweep you up in their story. it is also a story that has been told many times all through time, and if you want to grab peoples attention you have to do this story in a whole new way that has not been done yet. And sadly this was not it.

2 out of 5 stars.

2 volumes in 1.

Manga. Romance. Action. Adventure.

Summary: Neo-Verona was once peacefully ruled by the Capulet family, but the rival house of Montague led a coup against the Capulets, wiping them out. Fourteen years later, Lord Montague rules Neo-Verona with an iron fist. But there is hope for the suffering citizens: Juliet Capulet survived the massacre and now turns her sword against the wealthly Montagues in an effort to aid the poor. When she meets the son of Lord Montague at the Rose Ball, she discovers that he is similarly disturbed by his father’s cruelty. As Juliet finds herself falling in love with her sworn enemy, she is conflicted…
Is there any hope for a love that crosses enemy lines?
