The Romeo and Juliet high school rom-com that inspired the anime! Rival dorms on an extravagant island campus fight a schoolyard war, but can two star-crossed lovers keep their budding relationship a secret?
Who Set This Ancient Quarrel New Abroach?
Dahlia Academy’s first-years are away from their fair campus for a friendly three-day school trip, and surprising no one, it only takes one night for the fierce feud between the White Cats and Black Doggies to blow up yet again. This time, it’s leading ladies Persia and Hasuki at each other’s throats over Inuzuka’s affections. They’ve vowed to prove once and for all which of them loves their dear Romio the most.
As the sparks fly, can Inuzuka find a way to cool these ladies off without anyone getting burned?
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?!
Dramatic schoolyard fighting action alongside the romance - and Juliet herself lands some of the best punches!
