... Please watch the anime!

I watched the anime long before I read this manga. I decided to read the manga because I heard that there were some differences, and there certainly were.

Though the manga came first, the anime expands upon ideas and situations and gives more insight as to what is going on. While reading the manga, I felt myself a little lost at times - and the only reason I knew what was going on at all was because I had already seen the anime.

Wow, it's pretty bad. There are 'fight scenes' (that last a few panels) that are very scratchy and hard to read/view. The characters, as expected in a 'Romeo and Juliet' knockoff fall in love, though the mangaka doesn't drive that plot at all. They meet, they fall in love, just because it's Romeo and Juliet. I finished reading it, but really only because it's the only thing in the store I haven't read yet.
