I don't think I've ever cried harder during a finale. It completely caught me off guard, and I couldn't handle it. This episode crushed my heart and I sobbed after finishing it. I'll never forget that horribly painful moment when Romeo, after being stabbed in the process of freeing Juliet of her dreadful burden, used his last bit of strenth to try and kiss her one last time, only to fall into her arms dead. It utterly killed me. Just thinking about it brings me to tears. And then at the very end as the credits were going by, William made a speech about how the two star-crossed lovers taught them all that love can conquer any emotion, love can bring anyone together no matter what. That quote was so emotionally impacting. Gonzo definitely did the infamous play justice in this version, it will remain one of my favorite series for the rest of my anime-loving life. If haven't seen this series or are getting ready to start it, brace yourself for indescribible beauty, meaning and passion; And the ultimate pain and sorrow. Romeo X Juliet has it all. It's absolutely amazing in every possible way. If you want proof, watch it for yourself and you'll understand completely. True love conquers all.moreless
