Romaji: Romio to Shinderera
English: Romeo and Cinderella
Uploaded April 5, 2009, with 6,930,000+ Niconico views and 103,100+ YouTube views
The lyrics this time come mainly from an old story of a good girl or something.
— Author's comment
The song is about a schoolgirl who is deeply in love with her "Romeo". Her parents disapprove of the relationship so she lies constantly to keep it in secret. The girl compares her situation with Juliet's forbidden romance, but instead of Juliet's tragic ending she wants to have a happy ending like Cinderella did.
At the end of the song, she realizes her situation is critical and her own lies are menacing her so she asks her "Romeo" to come and save her. Interestingly, near the end of the song it is hinted that possibly her "relationship" could have just been a fit of passion.
The song has over one million views, and has entered the Hall of Legend. It was released with its instrumental as a
KarenT single, and is the title track of doriko's first major album, . Additionally, it is featured on the albums ロミオとシンデレラ , MIKUNOPOLIS in LOS ANGELES “はじめまして、初音ミクです” , MOER feat.初音ミク -2nd anniversary- , The Legend of 超絶調声師 , VOCALOID BEST from ニコニコ動画(あか) , 初音ミク 5thバースデー ベスト〜memories〜 , 初音ミクベスト ～impacts～ 花束〜the best of doriko feat.初音ミク〜 and Download feat.初音ミク, with a newly arranged version.
doriko has since then released a recent sequel to the song, "
Watashi to Juliet" ( Me and Juliet).

Written by an unknown artist, this version of the lyrics were used in the English version of
Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd.
Don't make my love your tragic Juliet
Take me away...
That's how I feel
Tell Mom and Dad goodnight
Wish them sweet dreams, at least
It's bedtime for grownups
Choking on captivating caramel
Entwining my bare, bashful legs
How far can we venture tonight?
Be gentle, don't bite
I still dislike bitter tastes
Having been spoiled on Mom's homemade sweets
When there's something you don't know
It's only natural to want to find out
Show me everything
And just for you, I'll show you mine too...
I'm a Cinderella, yearning for you,
I'll come running in my school uniform
Oh magic, please stop the hands of time
Before the villain interferes
I'm a Juliet who wants to run away
But don't call me by that name
We have to live happily ever after
Otherwise where's the fun?
Tell me, will you choose life?
Won't you peek into my heart?
See how it brims with desires?
I've got room for more
Pack my heart until it's full
Until it fills up the place
Where you are
But what would be the point?
They say happiness comes in small packages
If something doesn't change
You're going to end up hating me
But Mom and Dad are the same as ever
They just want more
You're right, I should be honest
The axe I dropped was one of gold
Cinderella told one too many lies
And got herself swallowed by the wolf
If something doesn't change
He's going to end up eating me too
Come to my rescue, before it's too late!

Miri Shira Romio to Shinderera (I don't even know a millimeter of Romeo & Cinderella)
Otouto no Ane
Otouto no Ane
A version with an improvised lyric done by Otouto no Ane after she heard the instrumental version of the original song, without knowing the original lyrics. The new lyrics talk about a love triangle between two childhood friends ("Romeo" and "Juliet") and a new girl ("Cinderella"), who quickly wins the boy's heart.
Anazaa: Romio to Shinderera (Another: Romeo and Cinderella)
Anima (lyrics), Suke (illust),
One of the Anima's
"Another:" (アナザー：) parodies. As with the others, it shows the point of view of the male, in this case the "Romeo" from the original song. Like the original song, the lyrics are ambiguous and can interpreted in different ways. At the end is hinted that the guy could just taking advantage of the girl, as the kanji from the last verse can be read either as tabe (devour) or as tasuke (save).
Miri Shira Romeo and Cinderella ~Another~
CantabileDC (lyrics, illust)
An English parody of Otouto no Ane's Miri Shira from the point of view of "Prince Charming". The lyrics largely seem to follow the original plot of Cinderella, but, like in Miri Shira, Prince Charming loses his beloved to Romeo, and mourns the twisted fate of their stories. However, the conclusion of the song seems to imply a less tragic future, ending with an open-ended meeting between Prince Charming and Juliet.
