What began as a soft introduction, builds up into a long (horrendous) and painstaking long storytelling I have ever watched to the point that I considered that the writers are at a dead end to drag the story longer than it was supposed to. Little did I know the long buildup is worthwhile. After following the series for so long, they need a big break. Indeed the writers had caught me by surprise when Romeo x Juliet ended in a high note, making the finale among the most memorable endings ever. We have seen countless animes ended abruptly (partly because the continuation goes to the manga) but GONZO offered something else for the fans of the series. We do know of the cruel fate Romeo and Juliet have to face, especially Juliet whose life would determine the fate of Neo Verona. Sadly our hero Romeo couldn’t do much to ease off her burden. Or so I thought. GONZO undertakes this classic from Shakespeare as an adaptation (just so as to make it clear) and made it their own. Now that pops the big question – will GONZO’s Romeo and Juliet face the same fate as Shakespeare’s? What will come next may be tragic to some but the bittersweet ending serves the story well.
