The Romeo and Juliet high school rom-com that inspired the upcoming anime! Rival dorms on an extravagant island campus fight a schoolyard war, but can two star-crossed lovers keep their budding relationship a secret?
Unhappy Fortune By My Brotherhood
All Romio Inuzuka wants is to wish his secret girlfriend Juliet Persia a happy birthday, but when Inuzuka’s authoritarian older brother Airu suspects their relationship, the star-crossed couple’s plans—and their confidence in keeping up their mad masquerade—all go down the tubes. Luckily, Persia’s big day isn’t over yet, and Inuzuka has one last chance to fool his big bro and meet up with her, and it just happens to involve roping the Black Doggies into “crashing” Persia’s birthday bash at White Cat House!
Commence Operation: Pie-Throwing Bonanza!
Series Overview: On the fair island campus of Dahlia, the student body is split into two rival dorms: The Black Dog House of the eastern nation of Touwa, and the White Cats House of the West. Despite his doting childhood friend and a loyal posse, the first-year leader of the Black Dogs, Romeo Inuzuka, has one big teenage problem: He has a crush on Juliet Persia, the first-year leader of the White Cats! With her own brainiac right-hand man and a powerful crew behind her, the cutthroat Juliet thinks she has no time for misadventures with a hopeless romantic like Romeo. When Romeo meets Juliet one fateful twilight, he thinks he has a shot at love…but is this secret affair really worth dying for?!
