The story takes place at Grigio Academy Boarding School where students come from two rivaling countries known as the "Black Dogs" and "White Cats." Persia and Inuzuka are leaders of their respective dorms, but they are secretly in love with each other. Now, they must keep their relationship a secret from other dorm mates while trying to avoid trouble.
Romeo and Juliet the name is no stranger to us, right? yes they are a pair of young brides who love each other but his love does not go smoothly and is opposed by his family. Romeo Juliet himself has a variety of storylines ranging from sadness and end to happiness.
Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet tells of two young couples namely Persia Juliet and Inuzuka Romio who have secretly established love relationships. Series adapted from "Manga" written by Kaneda Yousuke is very interesting because it takes the legendary romantic story of Romeo and Juliet not surprised many spectators were deeply moved, and wrapped in comedy elements
that made the audience laugh out loud making this RonCom series became popular among teenagers.
Nowadays, technology has begun to evolve rapidly as time goes by, anime began to develop in terms of depiction and graphic design. This series takes the story of antiquity where ancient buildings have their own charm. Color selection in this case also has a very significant effect. the action that makes this series even better the process of drawing an action-themed series is difficult because it requires more frames to come out and this series is already good in its drawings, but what makes this more interesting is the depiction of ancient times which makes it more realistic and has a characteristic distinctive.
incomplete if the storyline and depiction techniques are good if not supported by good voice actors and music background. Studio LIDENFILMS brought Kayano Ai as the voice of "Persia Juliet" while the duo Oono Yuuki played the role of "Inuzuka Romio". Love With You sung by "FripSide" became the opening theme while the closing part was Itsuka Sekai no Kawaru made which was sung by "Riho Lida".
In this series has the first three character play "Persia Juliet". Persia herself is a girl who wants to change the world for the better but the one who is the barrier is her little cook and the one she loves, "Inuzuka Romio". the nature of being angry, caring for others, and most importantly being honest. In the midst of their romance a girl who honestly likes Romio Inuzuka she is "Komai Hasuko" she is a cheerful and passionate girl who cares for her friends.
the story of Romeo and Juliet is a romantic story that was legendary years ago until now with the Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet series that has a storyline that is a bit similar to the legendary story to honestly make some people carried away but unfortunately in this series it has no drama which is good but for some people it is good enough than the series that is full of drama and makes some people touched and full of emotion.
The disclaimer seen in the beginning has to be one of the longest anime has to offer and it is no wonder. The title of this series could as well be changed to "Fuck You, William Shakespeare" and that wouldn't even affect the level of subtle we have at hand. Make no mistake, however, this isn't a parody, this is just a disgrace.
We have school settings here and the school is divided in two because people apparently really hate each others. In this other divided half -- called House White Cat, lives our Juliet, and in the another -- called House Black Dog, lives Romio.
The daily school life of our students consists of people slapping each others in the face and acting like the opposing party members are total buttholes. While this is pretty much how different opinions work in irl and especially in politics, with Juliet's case there just is no reason to give a damn.
Juliet herself is pretty much like every background anime girl ever except this time she got the role of a main. She hardly has any personality, and in generally, it is hard to even see why the main male lead would fall for her as she is just totally empty character. The main dude presents himself as some sort of cheap "girls like guys like these, right?" stereotype. He is practically one of those shojo love interests that solely exist in romance series until the girl realizes there is more to guys than their outlook... except this time he is the real main character. The only mildly interesting character and the only one who seems to have some sort of personality is Harusi from Black Dogs and she is used basically as an element in the series to a) create comedy and b) create some type of cheesy and completely improbable love interest alternative.
If this series had more comedy or at least some comedy (it is supposed to be a comedy), maybe it would be at least entertaining in some way. Thus far, the pinnacle of the comedy was a scene where our main dude disappeared in the middle of an ongoing monologue aimed at him. Which is a thing that has occurred in approximately 3 gigazaillion other anime series already, most of which presented it better and had some characters with personalities so that the comedic moments came with at least some level of depth.
Art is another thing that could easily make this series seem better and give some sort of glory and meaning to its events, but damn if ain't generic and cheap. I am mainly reminded of those low budget action anime series from the beginning of this decade where the coolest animation tricks were practically different colored light effects. This thing looks boring, sounds boring and is boring, and on top of that, has been going for worse since the beginning.
Boarding School Juliet has gone rather unnoticed this season due to the popularity of Goblin Slayer, Sword Art Online, and so on. As a romantic comedy, it’s hard to keep up with the top shounen shows releasing every season. However, this show is surprisingly interesting and although can’t exactly be compare to the quality of the top shows airing right now, is still quite entertaining to watch.
Story: Boarding School Juliet is a spin-off of the original “Romeo and Juliet”(which is quite obvious when you read the title), as it retains many of the same elements. This time, the two rival groups, the White Cats
and the Black Dogs continuously fight amongst each other with their leaders,Juliet Persia and Romeo Inuzuka, as the two star crossed lovers. These two groups are a part of the same school, but each compete to rise to the top and best the other. It’s your basic, simple storyline that has been overused, but still is enjoyable as we watch the two characters get into problematic, comedic, and romantic situations together.
Characters: When it comes to characters, romantic comedies tend to fall very short, and Boarding School Juliet isn’t exactly any better. Inuzuka Romeo, although isn’t as dense as most harem show main characters, still retains the cliche dense archetype many in the audience despise and are tired of constantly seeing. There’s not much depth or uniqueness in his character, he still retains a predictable and overused personality. Juliet is not very different either, she also has a very shallow character with a predictable personality. In fact, how she even fell for Romeo seems very rushed with no development, how someone who was her life-long enemy suddenly became the love of her life in a mere instant.
Art and Music: If you have read my past reviews, then you would know I don’t put too much stress on the art and music of a show. What matters most is the plot and the characters, great art and music alone can not get you anywhere. Moving on, Boarding School Juliet’s art is quite good, and I have nothing really to complain about it. The colors are bright and it fits nicely with the comedy of the show. Music is also great, as the opening is probably one of my favorite ones this season. Overall, solid animation and music production that fits nicely with the theme and mood of the show.
Final Verdict: For many of us, romantic comedies are guilty pleasures, and I am not an exceptions. They’re fun to watch and many times the cuteness of the characters puts a smile on our faces. But the main problem with these type of shows and including Boarding School Juliet is the lack of strong characters and plot. It’s almost always the same predictable character archetype with a weak story to follow up on it. Boarding School Juliet is fun to watch, but it lacks two of the most important elements to truly entertain the audience. There is a lack of a strong theme or message or any powerful statement; this show like many others is simply there to make a select group of people have fun and that’s about it. Boarding School Juliet can bring many people excitement for a short period of time, but it’s a show that stays largely forgettable once it finishes airing. But if you are looking for a show for some quick enjoyment, then I recommend this show to you.

My first review so i am gonna keep it short :) A bit of spoilers*
This Anime series takes the elements of Classical Shakespeare Story of Romeo and Juliet from a manga by Kaneda Yousuke , with the story of the two main characters Persia Juliet and Inuzuka Romio belonging to opposite factions "The White Cats" and "The Black Dog", who fall for each other and have to overcome difficulties on a daily basis to keep their relationship a secret from their factions and maintaining it while achieving their common goal which is achieving peace between the two factions and change the world.
is a mix of your generic Highschool romance and Comedy, also throwing in some serious moments at times and adapting elements of ancient time traditions and culture as its derived from the classical romeo and Juliet.
Inuzuka : A strong headed Mc with angry mind at times, can be dense and clumsy. but caring for others and also most importantly honest , also possess qualities which is refreshing to see.
Persia : A smart, skilled and a maiden figure, who leads by example, has a shy and loving, caring nature and wants to change the world starting by peace between the rival factions.

Char: Persia's friend who shows a dominating and sadistic side on the outside mostly but is really caring for Persia and in a way obsessed over her.
There are more side characters but have not stand out in any way till now.
Art: Studio LINDELFIELDS have done a really great job in terms of animation, keeping it Bright and colourful , great work in the detailing of the drawings, especially as many of the scenes contain old school type of buildings, romantic scenes and views.The depiction and presentation of an old school scenario where the series is taking place can actually be felt and it goes well with elements of the story.
Music and soundtrack : Not much to discuss there but the background tracks are pretty well done, considering it blends well with the scenes in the anime. The Intro and outro songs are sung by well known artists Fripside and riho lida which are pretty good.
Finally i would just like to say this is again a rom com series with a adaption of romeo and juliet, if you like something to sit back relax and enjoy, with a bit of drama and emotional touching scenes, then this anime is really worth the watch.
