Romeo x Juliet

Plot: The sole survivor of the house of Capulet, Juliet, lives her life disguised as a boy in Neo Verona. She fights for the impoverished as the masked vigilante, the Red Whirlwind, putting her in quite a bit of trouble with the tyrannical Archduke Montague. One night, Juliet sneaks out with a friend to attend the Rose Ball. There, she meets Romeo and falls in love with him at first sight. Unfortunately, her Capulet supporters have their own agenda in mind -- one of revenge against the house of Montague, with Juliet at the helm. (A-)
