Both of these shows come from the same studio, and they have a similar format as well - reimagining classic literature in a different setting. Gankutsuou, for instance, is adapted to involve space travel. If you\'re a stickler for exact details, these probably aren\'t for you. They adjust the plot and such freely, but they try to remain true to the spirit of the original works and reinvent them in a new and interesting way. Some might hold that as a griping point, but I think reimagining rather than just regurgitating is an admirable goal.

For many fans, Romeo and Juliet does not match the greatness of Gankutsuou, but it's still fair to call it Gankutsuou's spiritual successor. Made by the same studio, both are loose adaptations of classic literature that feature more futuristic, sci-fi-esque settings.

Gonzo's masterpieces which are loose adaptations of 2 literature's classics, with a new, sci-fi, futuristic setting. Both have drama, romance, and some action, a good cast of characters with their intricated relationships, and amazing animation. In both RxJ and Gankutsuou revenge is a focal point, and so is the psychology of the characters. Also, both have a romantic relationship which is obstructed by other people. Last but not least, both are about aristocrats.

They are both anime adaptation of European classics. Gankutsuou stays more faithful to the original novel by Dumas, while Romeo x Juliet is more of a romance anime.
