This will be my last Amazon Prime anime review for this year. I didn't do this review with the show freshly watched. Just like Shobitch anime, I didn't leave comments on the anime discussion while I was binging the anime.
Without spoilers, here's the plot.
Romio Inuzuka and Juliet Persia are the main characters. Like how the anime is inspired or loosely based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, we follow Romio and Juliet's secret relationship that can be ruined easily due to a long historical, feud between 2 schools and 2 countries, "Nation of Touwa"/Black Dogs School and "Principality of West"/White Cats School.
While the objective of the story is to keep their secret relationship intact, they did establish goals. Romio's goal was to change the school. This was only mentioned again in the last few episodes which felt out of focus. The show's drama is rushed at the very end with the romance comedy taking majority of the anime series. Romio and Juliet solve most of their problems because most of the characters are dumb until they face Romio's brother and the White Cats elite students. Romio's brother and the traditions of the Black Dogs get more screen time than Juliet's school. The way, Romio and Juliet avoid keeping their relationship revealed at the end felt unbelievable. Back to Juliet's character, I cannot remember what was her personal goal. I do remember her character development which was tied to her gender because as a young girl, she was not taken seriously to inherit her family wealth. Juliet is a fighter who strives to demonstrate she's a capable person.
As for supporting and minor characters, only one love interest and one sister/friend(?) had their relationship explored with the main couple: Hatsuki for Romio [unrequited childhood romance] and Char for Juliet. We also get a few other Black Dogs characters, more than the White Cats side.
For fan service content, I don't remember if they had panty shots. I do remember they had scenes of girls dressing where you can see their lingerie. There is accidental groping. The show isn't violent. Overall, the anime is a light hearted romance comedy series with a few dramatic scenes.
I recommend this anime to anyone who is in a mood for a romance comedy show. It doesn't display anything ground breaking. It's full of cliches you seen in other rom coms.
Old Man Dream: 26 episodes, actually. Took a week for me to finish. Actually got through the first half quick last weekend. Slowed a bit over this week because things in real life got a bit hectic.

Old Man Dream: On episode 2. One question to ask: why the hell was Midori's real body naked when Seiji and Midori-Hand were at her house?

Old Man Dream: For context in that episode, Seiji decided to go to Midori's house to try figuring out why Midori-Hand is on his right hand and sees the real one is in a coma. Assuming Midori-Hand would somehow return to her real body if she made physical contact with...

Old Man Dream: it, the two are shocked to see that for whatever reason, Midori's original body was kept in the nude by her family.
