    A derivative or not a derivative? That IS the question....

    I felt as though this "version" of Romeo and Juliet... is simply not similar enough to the plays to warrant the distinction of being "by William Shakespeare." It's certainly a weak derivative to say the least. The plot is almost flipped on its backside, many of the characters were simply removed or placed into different roles, and Shakespeare himself makes an appearance in a random theater to point out that "the world's a stage." It's more like a jumble of different Shakespearean references in a story very separate from the original play by Shakespeare. That being said, it is still incredible. The artwork is gorgeous (with ALL CAPS ;D) and the story is intriguing. It's worth the buy, but if you're looking to actually get an idea of Shakespeare's play go for a different one. The Manga Shakespeare series' Romeo and Juliet is pretty good for that since it keeps the language (therefore more of an adaption than a derivative).

    Great!

    A wonderful spin on a timeless Shakespeare classic. Full of action, romance, adventure, and more! Definitely check it out.

    Worth the Buy

    This manga was very fun to read,because the storyline is remixed very much than that of the original Shakespeare version. Overall, the art was amazing and helps the reader be part of the story and move through the storyline very smoothly. There are many features that make this book very entertaining including a handfull of fully colored pages and the appearances of William Shakespeare himself which provides some good comic relief to the dramatic storyline. If you are a lover of dramatic romance and lovable characters then I highly recommended checking this book out, trust me it will bw worth it. :)
