Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - entertainment.msn.com - en.wikipedia.org - sell.com - animenewsnetwork.com - movies.yahoo.com - halfvalue.com - lotsofgooddeals.com - themanime.org: «...The story, is basically a retelling of Romeo and Juliet with a heavy dose of mythology thrown into the mix. Our hero and heroine fill the lead roles, complete with best-buddy sidekicks that get them into (and out of) trouble throughout. Sometimes slightly goofy, sometimes a little sad, the story weaves along in a hypnotic way that might put more action oriented fans to sleep, but proves interesting enough to keep both children and adults watching. I remember this was one of the only "cartoon" films that wasn't Disney that my parents ever sat all the way through. The characters are endearing and colorful, and while the dialogue (at least in the English version that I own) is not anything truly thought provoking or astounding, its simple enough for children to follow and not overly cloying and insipid for adult viewers. On a similar note, the voice acting is actually very well done considering the age of the film (circa 1982 for its US release)...».
