Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet Introduction
The students of Dahlia Academy Boarding School are all either members of the Black Dogs or the White Cats. The two households, both alike in dignity, find themselves in an endless battle for dominance in the school. Although the groups have a long history with each other, the leaders of the first years find themselves in a strange situation. Juliet Persia, leader of the White Cats, and Romio Inuzuka, leader of the Black Dogs, have fallen in love with each other despite the two sides refusing to have anything to do with each other. Due to their positions, Romio and Persa cannot express their love for each other and are forced to keep their romantic rendezvous a secret. Romio and Persia continue to keep their love a secret while also keeping their groups intact.
1. The Romance
The romantic story of Romio and Persia is a nice and heartwarming one to watch. All of the romantic moments between the two of them are some of the best moments in the show. Romio and Persia's forbidden love also helps setup all of the great comedic moments in the series.
Although the romance gets a bigger focus in the overall story, the comedic moments make for the best parts of the series. The war between the groups creates some hilarious moments that really help move the story along. These moments also allow some of the supporting cast to shine and we get to see just how interesting and funny some of them can be.
3. The Visuals
There is a lot to love about the visual in the anime. The backgrounds are interesting and colorful while the character designs are unique and wonderful. Using the contrasting attitudes and designs between the members of the White Cats and the Black Dogs also helps give the visuals a boost.
1. The Story
Even though the setup to the story is interesting, Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet fails to do anything unique or interesting with its story and characters. Every major event and character building moment is predictable. The story is very formulaic and doesn't do anything to separate itself from the dozens of other romantic comedies out there.
2. Multiple Love Interests
While there is nothing wrong with the characters itself, the problem comes from their impact it has on the story. Throughout the anime, many different girls get introduced that all have a crush on Romio. Outside of Persia and Hazuki, most of the girls feel like they are shoehorned into the story for no other reason than to get more cute girls into the forefront of the story. While these girls do bring a bit of drama to the story, it all just feels so forced and contrived that it takes away from the story more than it provides.
Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet has a great mix of romance and comedy to keep you entertained. Despite the many shortcomings of the story, there is still a lot here you can enjoy. Although the anime may not be for everybody, if you are looking for a good romantic comedy this may be the anime for you.
