  • Nothing.


  • No basis for the relationship.
  • Glass eyes.

When a tomboy meets her new, beautiful classmate, she is forced to play Romeo to her Juliet. Romeo’s female friend gets jealous and hates Juliet, wanting her for herself. The central plot device is the school play of Romeo & Juliet (obviously) with not much more to go on.

What is the basis for their relationship? I honestly don’t see what attracts them to each other, not even on a superficial level. Blandest relationship imaginable.

Art – Low

The glassy eyes make the characters look soulless.

Story – Low

The dullest use of Romeo & Juliet.

Recommendation: Don’t bother. Rather bland, if I am honest.
