Being a great fan of the typical Romeo X Juliet school-twisted manga at hindsight, I was wishing for an anime adaptation of this rom-com for sometime, and when it premiered in Fall 2018, I was SO happy and ready for the anime adaptation by Liden Films, and it delivered flawlessly (well, small faults but big wins). (Yay, Happy Xmas wish granted!)

The story...let's just say that if you know a even a little bit about the Romeo X Juliet Shakespeary context, it's the exact same premise here, just in terms of different factions, mainly the White Cats and Black Dogs, led by both leaders Romio Inuzuka read more

If you take a classic story like Romeo and Juliet and convert it into a modern romantic comedy, you’d get Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet. While neither series are alike to each other, they do borrow a few familiar themes with the most prominent being a forbidden romance. But there’s more to that, no?

Romance is practical in a show like this but it made me question first what the were really aiming for. I’m not familiar Yousuke Kaneda’s works but when it comes to a rom-com, they made the point crystal clear. Romio Inuzuka and Juliet Persia are in love. It’s the type of love that read more

“There’s no sexual harassment in a match” — Four-eyed sex offender

Oh…in that case.

“Grab them by the pussy.” — Donald Trump

I haven’t seen Romeo and Juliet butchered this horribly since Baz Luhrmann decided to cast Leonardo DiCaprio in a modernized version of the Bard’s classic with its original dialogue intact. At Dahlia Academy Boarding School, the “White Cats” and the “Black Dogs” operate on the assumption that the only way to resolve their differences, is through a school yard battle royal where anything goes. Faces get punched. Hair gets pulled. Even more faces get punched. Girls clothes get stripped off (you read more

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 read more

So i gave this an overall 10. Despite the ending well not being the end (so this isnt a spoiler but the material its based on is still ongoing as far as i know). However as a standalone 12 episode show it was amazing. i pray we get a second season with an actual ending BUT in all honesty i honestly think this show would need at least (and that's at LEAST) two more seasons to even make that possible. I suppose a lazy conclusion would be for the countries to intermarry nobility or something to improve relations but i do not really see that read more

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. read more

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 read more

Easily 10/10. Animation was fantastic, and I am very happy this didn't turn out to be just another harem anime. I think their relationship progressed a bit too slow and that Romeo was a bit childish not even being able to be close to her without blushing but nothing which degrades the score of the masterpiece this is. I honestly jumped out of happiness and excitement during the last episode and that is a strong 10 for me.

Also this is not a spoiler of any storyline but the anime ended on manga-chapter 18, out of current 85. Material-wise this has every posibility for a season read more

So, Romio and Juliet I could have sworn I these names a familiar. I think it was a theatrical play? Anyway this anime is a love comedy and did it do romcoms justice? Well it did decent enough.

This anime is bursting with really well known voice actors and actresses from Kayano ai who voiced Darkness from Konosuba and Gintoki himself and many more well known voice actors and actresses. But the BGM doesn't shy away it is also top notch. But that isn't the best part about this anime the best part is the romcom itself. But that's about it. The story in this anime read more

A Romeo and Juliet love story re-interpretation that is actually good. No seriously.

Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet takes a Romeo and Juliet story, add in a harem that makes "some sense" for the main couple and combine all that with the basis of Romeo and Juliet's family dispute to a school setting, as much as these statements makes it out like cliche, but it's in the details.

Our titular Romeo and Juliet are taking place in Dahlia Academy Boarding School where there are two rivaling countries known as the White Cats where our Juliet Persia voiced by Ai Kayano is factioned where as the Black Doggies is read more

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 while developing and read more

Let's get straight to the point: Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet is an okay show; there are a lot of uninteresting moments, but there are some enjoyable ones too.

The first thing most people would expect the show to be is an anime rendition of "Romeo and Juliet". It borrows a couple of things such as the names Romeo (or in this case, "Romio") and Juliet, as well as the idea of 2 rival factions where the secret lovers are from, but that's about it for similarities.

The show wastes no time in pairing the two together. Being secret lovers, they need to do all sorts of read more

If there's anything from ninth grade I remember most, it's the unit where I was forced to read the Shakespearian tale of 'Romeo and Juliet', the classic romantic tragedy of two lovers of opposing families who were never meant to be, ultimately dying together as a sign of their love.  (Spoiler if you've never read the book, watched the play, or watched any of the hundreds of story variants.)  So really, what's the next step for such an old and classic tale?  Rewrite and reproduce it as an anime of course.

Ah... I finally get to review this anime. This anime is definitely one of my favorites for sure. And in this review, I'm gonna try explain why:

(May contain very minor spoilers.)

Story: (8/10)

The story is short but sweet. Throughout this anime we fellow Romio Inuzuka, as he builds his relationship with Juliet Persia. But this won't be easy for our MC. In this school, there are 2 houses. Inuzuka is part of the "Black Doggies", and Persia is part of the "White Cats". Basically this means that these 2 houses are rivals. There are rules in between these 2 houses, so they can read more

Totally spoiler-free short review with almost no mentions of plot. A review on objective points of an anime:

One of the most important things about an anime is the art! Boarding School Juliet's art is good enough to be graded as "A" or "B+". Its art is not superb; its drawers draw them pretty averagely, like how some normal studios draw. Another important part of the art is its consistency - is the art always good enough to be average throughout all the episodes released so far? Unfortunately- no, but it's still ignorable. In episode 5, the quality drops a bit, making it obvious something read more

If you are expecting an anime version of Romeo and Juliet, look elsewhere.

Although the plot seems to follow along Shakespeare's original play, it is more like if someone took a spin-off of the play... and added comedy and anime tropes to it.

However, the lack of Romeo and Juliet themes doesn't detract from the overall viewing experience. The atmosphere is surprisingly lighthearted, in spite of several more serious events taking place.

I personally find that the characters are the best part of this anime. Most characters are unbelievable (there is no way that a perfect girl like Persia exists in reality), but that is just part read more

After reading the manga which i thought was truly amazing. The character and story development in the manga was one of the best i have ever read/watched. It was truly a joy to read but after watching the anime adaptation i have to say i am disappointed at the job they have done. It does not do justice for how good the manga is.

Story/character :
They have cut out a lot of the character and story development making it feel less complete than it should be and it feels like you are thrown into the show without good development of the characters. They have taken some read more

I came across this anime while browsing the options listed in prime video. I had neither read the manga nor had any previous information about it and was just looking for a light anime to hook me up. And boy was it good.

It is one of those anime which instantly makes you want a next season. Now that I have come know about the manga and am reading it, I am falling in love with a lot more.

But strictly speaking about the anime, it just has a great balance of humor plus drama. Yes it has the same Romeo and Juliet premise but read more

So...contradictory to public belief, I actually have no idea that Rodeo and Juliet refers to an old folk tale of some sort that portrays forbidden love (not to be confused with the more common "incestuous love" seen on anime these days)

So jumping to the anime without expecting it to be about "forbidden love", I would say this is a rather interesting take on a romcom (abbreviation of "romantic comedy").

Art-wise, it's pretty much the exact definition of "average". Something like what A-1 Pictures would make, not really out of the ordinary, and not really bland, just positioned right at the line. Guess you don't really see read more

Please note this review is intended to be read by those that have finished watching Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet and while care has been taken to minimize spoilers there may still be spoilers within character analysis. You have been warned.
