The drama is starting to heat up in these next four episodes of Ginban Kaleidoscope. How is everyone enjoying Tazusa’s journey to the Olympics? It’s quite the little roller-coaster we have here. :>

Is this a love that can never be?

Given how a large part of the industry lives off adapting manga and novels, it’s a surprise that Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, has never been adapted for anime. Well, it happened, and the result was Romeo X Juliet: An adaptation perhaps too loose for some, but one that retains all the flare and uncertainty that surrounded the relationship between the two teenagers in the original play.

Fourteen years ago, on the floating island of Neo Verona, Leontes Montague murdered all the members of House Capulet, save for the two-year old Juliet. Present-day, Prince Leontes Montague rules over Neo Verona with an iron fist and crushes anyone who opposes him. Juliet has lived in hiding  with Capulet loyalists and fights the oppression using her vigilante persona, the Red Whirlwind. While attending a ball hosted by the Montagues, Juliet meets Romeo, the prince’s son, and they both fall in love. Through the twenty-four episodes, we not only see this romance grow and brave through difficult trials, but we also get to see as Capulet loyalists organize a rebellion to overthrow Prince Montague.

Kimi to Boku has been an interesting anime experience, ever since it began last fall. The first season started off pretty slow, but once the characters were established the show became quite charming and fun, mixing in some good comedy with its slice-of-life high school setting. The characters developed very gradually, much as people likely do in real life, with individual episodes generally focusing on a single concept or feeling associated with those unpredictable teenage years. The second season has continued this trend, but many of the episodes have been incorporating more and more in regards to romance, which I feel is unique for Kimi to Boku’s particular genre.

Ginban Kaleidoscope caught my eye a while back thanks to its unique premise. Admittedly, I have an interest in stories involving spirits, and I’ve been in the mood for a nice lighthearted romcom. And when it comes to sports, to be honest the only ones I have the faintest interest in watching are found in the Winter Olympics. I like snow and ice, and the contestants really dive right into such dangerous and spectacular sports for these events… Figure skating included. I’m not truly into the sport (eg I don’t know most of the terms), but it is quite exhilarating to watch.
