So apparently this is based on the anime. Which I happen to adore. It does have Shakespearean elements, but in reality it's nothing like the original story. Quite a unique twist on it too. That's why I loved it so much. That being said, manga just wasn't as good. It was too rushed and at times difficult to understand. Which is too bad cause I wanted it to be as amazing as the anime is. The drawings though are really great. Especially the ones in color. Beautifully drawn. In any case, it's really such a beautiful story. The ending had me crying like a baby.
