Episoden 01-04 auf deutsch + 05-24 mit deutschem untertitel. KOMPLETT
In the fantastical aeropolis of Neo Verona, the noble house of Capulet had ruled peacefully for generations - until fourteen years ago, when the ancient grudge held by the rival house of Montague led to a mutiny, and the Capulets were disposed and all wiped out in a bloody coup. Now, as Neo Verona suffers under the thrall of its new masters, the fates of two star crossed lovers are about to become tragically entwined... As the citizens of the city suffer, the Capulet clan struggles to strike a blow against their enemies, and the Montagues tighten their grasp on power, an unlikely love blossoms between Romeo and Juliet - but in the face of such adversity, this ill-fated love may be doomed from the outset. Triumph or tragedy; only fate knows what awaits Romeo and Juliet...
The story begins with flashback to an infant Juliet escaping the massacre of the Capulet family at the hands of Laertes Montague. It then flash forwards fourteen years later with Montague ruling the fantasy land Neo Verona with an iron fist; Juliet helps the common folk in a Robin Hood-like fashion while Romeo protests his father's cruelty. They meet by coincidence at the Rose Ball and fall in love at first sight. However, when Juliet turns sixteen and learns the truth of her heritage, her love becomes conflicted between revolution and devotion.
* Neo Verona (????????, Neo?Ver?na?) - An aerial city in which the story is set.
* Ry?ba (??, Ry?ba? Dragon Horse) - A winged horse with the tail of a dragon, similar to the Pegasus. Ry?ba are capable of transporting people on their backs and are handled using reins in the same way as normal horses. More than a means of transportation, winged ry?ba can be considered a symbol of status as they are not something that common folk can own, and are only seen ridden by members of the aristocracy or nobility. Ry?ba with degenerated wings, thus unable to fly, are often owned by commoners.
* Great Tree Escalus (???????, Taiki Esukarasu?) - A huge and enchanted tree inside the Montague's castle, which is the remaining of a pair of trees that gives support to Neo Verona. According to its caretaker, a woman named Ophelia, it gives blessings to people, but it also weakens if the persons don't have love in their hearts. When it is thriving, it drops shining fruit from its branches. Since it has been in Montague's care, the tree has noticeably begun to wither. It is likely named after Prince Escalus from Shakespeare's play.
* Carabinieri - The Military Police of Neo Verona. The name is the same as the true Carabinieri of Italy.

His name is an obvious reference to the character of the original play, though in the Shakespeare version, he is Juliet's cousin and is not related to Romeo.
Differences between media
Although the series is loosely based on Shakespeare's original play many characters that were based of Shakespeare's original characters in Romeo & Juliet have gone through drastic changes concerning personality, relationships, role in the story and final outcome.
* Juliet - In the series, Juliet is presented as a strong and intelligent young woman, with a strong sense of justice and determination to lead the Capulet faction against the oppression of the corrupt Lord Montague. She falls deeply in love with Romeo and is stricken with the decision of being with Romeo or destroying Lord Montague. In the original play Juliet is shown as a shy, meek, and emotional young woman who immediately falls in love with Romeo when she meets him and does not care that he is a Montague. Her series counterpart backs away from Romeo after learning who he is, despite being deeply in love with him.
* Romeo - In the series, Romeo is the crown prince of Neo Verona, and a confident, polite young man. He has little respect for his Montague heritage because of his father's tyranny. Unlike his counterpart in the source material, Romeo first encounters Juliet at a party hosted by his family whereas in the play, he had secretly gone to a Capulet party in hopes of seeing Juliet's cousin, Rosaline. He holds nothing against the Capulet family and falls in love with Juliet, wishing only for them to be happy and safe.
* Lord Montague - In the play, Lord Montague is a only a minor character appearing in only a few scenes of the play. While present, he is shown as an being a caring and overprotective father to his son, showing no interest in destroying the Capulets other than desiring for them to leave the Montagues alone. In the series, he is shown as the main antagonist and acts as Duke of Neo Verona instead of just being the head of his own household. He acts as an uncaring, ruthless, and power hungry father and leader, as well as an illegitimate relation of the Capulet family. His main goal in the series is to find Lord Capulet's surviving child and kill her before the people still loyal to the Capulets can rebel.
* Mercutio - In the series, Mercutio is a sly, disrespectful, and spoiled version of a younger Lord Montague. He acts as a spy for Lord Montague to unearth why Romeo is acting oddly, and is trying to ensure that Montegue will disown his son for loving Juliet so he can become Montegue's heir (being Romeo's only male relative, apart from Tybalt who Montague abandoned). In the play, Mercutio is not Romeo's cousin but his and Benvolio's mutual best friend, and acts as reckless free spirited jokester, who truly cares for Romeo but lets his own hot-bloodedness override his weariness of the feud ('A plague on both your houses!')
* Cordelia - The character of Cordelia appears as a stand-in for Juliet's unnamed nurse. She is much younger than her counterpart in the source material and has been Juliet's best friend since childhood, acting as a older sister figure rather than the mother figure she appeared in the original play.
* Benvolio - Benvolio's character has changed little in the adaption and remains a level-headed and well-mannered friend to Romeo. However, he is not Romeo's cousin and a member of the Montague family, like in the play.
* Lady Portia - Romeo's mother is known only as Lady Montague in the original play and appears only a few scenes; she is depicted as a overprotective and loving mother who dies of heartbreak when she learns of her son's suicide at the end of the play. In the series, Lady Montague is named Portia and remains a loving mother who wishes for her son's happiness; however, she holds no loyalty to the Montagues, having left her husband to join a convent when she saw how power mad he was, and harbours no hostility to the Capulet faction, and shows sympathy and kindness to Juliet.
* Tybalt - In the original play, Tybalt is an arrogant, selfish but loyal ally to the Capulet family, as he is Juliet's maternal cousin and Romeo's sworn rival. He is eventually killed by Romeo, enraged and seeking revenge for Mercutio, who was killed by Tybalt. The series depicts Tybalt as a vigilante with a bubbling hatred for Lord Montague and sympathies aligning with the Capulet faction; he is the son of a Capulet woman and Lord Montague, making him Romeo's older half-brother.
* Lord Capulet: Although Lord Capulet was only seen at the beginning of the series before he is murdered by Lord Montague he is mentioned several times by other characters. He was depicted as being a kind, wise and fair ruler over Neo Verona, before the murder of his family. In the original play Lord Capulet and his wife live through the entire play; while present, he appears as a loving father to Juliet, though he also acted stubborn and controlling. At the end of the play, he makes peace with Montague after the death of his daughter and son-in-law
