Stacy King is a marvelous writer. I love her manga adaptations of classics (even though I’ve only read two so far). I enjoy her adaptation even more due to the fact that she puts so much research into her work – you can clearly see that in the final pages of the manga where she explains how she visited the locations mentioned in the story and puts her sketches.
I enjoyed the art very much and the characterization through it. For example, I loved that every male character had a specific sword which was weirdly very fitting for his character.
There is no point in putting a summary of the story of Romeo and Juliet since this play by Shakespeare is one of the most famous stories in the world. This is why I am keeping this review short. I believe everyone who enjoys Shakespeare and plays, in general, will sincerely enjoy this manga classic.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
