This plot takes a new twist to Romeo and Juliet's forbidden love. It's July 7th, 1999 in Shanghai and there are two gangs fighting for control. Only in the ceasefire zone do people live in peace. In a chance meeting Xiaoxue, who is part of the Toulon's gang, and Dawu, from the Xianglongji's gang meet by chance and without knowing they are enemies. In the heat of the moment Dawu takes him to a place he has the keys to in hopes Xiaoxue will join him, but is turned down. With a simple kiss he leaves Dawu not knowing they will meet again, but in very different circumstances

Don't be fooled by the horrendous art style, this manga is full of heart wrenching plot and romance. You'll get used to the style as you read on, and it won't bother you anymore once you get into the story (well, that's how it was for me). If you're looking for something sad and memorable, read it.

This is somewhat important, to understand the rating and review I gave this manga. I stumbled upon this series after reading (the fantastic) After School Nightmare series by the same author, Setona Mizushiro.

STORY (5/10):
The story, inspired somewhat by the star-crossed lovers of Shakespeare, is actually (and surprisingly) 1999nen 7 no Tsuki Shanghai's strong point. The story is transplanted into Shanghai in a world where kids must join gangs to survive. There was a lot of potential or the protagonists--members of opposing gangs--to have truly tense moments and torn loyalties. Instead the story read more

If you'll just look at first few pages, you might think twice on reading this manga but I can tell its a worth to read. This story really touched me so much I cried specially in the end. It's like Romeo and Juliet story in gangster style though I hated that the story is an open-ended one and you really gonna think in the end what a nice story should be afterwards. It has a unique love story not just like a plain yaoi story and that makes me think that this is one of the great yaoi mangas I've read.

I once read in a review that it is much more useful to write a negative review than a praising one. I agree with this one, however, I'm trying really hard to find words to describe this manga and I can not say anything else than it is absolutely beautiful. Is it the art? Not so much. The art made my eyes bleed sometimes and few times the characters' eyes made me think of those of a fish(empty, round, you get the point) but still, I can whole heartedly recommend this manga for everyone. At least if you like or have an open mind for read more
