Gonzo used to have something of a Romeo & Juliet fetish, as well as being one of few studios to have the balls to adapt material not destined to be adored by otaku. And this resulted in two very different anime, linked only by their usage of R&J tragedy as a main theme. Basilisk is best described as the Japanese period piece, ninja warfare equivalent of R&J.

Both are about rival clans, where the main girl and the main guy are enemies and fall in love. Both involve great action scenes and gives you a similar feeling in the end. Both are two amazing animes with detailed art and sceneries. Action, drama, fantasy and romance, both highly recommended!

Is it weird that the anime with Ninja Superpowers is more accurate to Shakespeare than the one with Romeo and Juliet in it? I think so... If you like anime about love, tragedy, and pine over what could have been if only fate had not been so cruel, these are definitly series for you. These series get you attached to wonderful, lovable characters, only to rip them away or put them into heart-wrenching moral delemas. Keep a box of tissues on hand if you get teary eyed over anime like that.

Both are tragic love stories that involve 2 star-crossed lovers whose families loathe one another. Thus, making it utterly impossible for them to be in a relationship without either side holding true to the phrase "where civil blood makes civil hands unclean."
