Romeo's Blue Skies (ロミオの青い空, Romio no aoi sora, "Romeo's Blue Skies") is a Japanese anime series by Nippon Animation. Although "Romeo's Blue Skies" is the literal translation of the Japanese title, the official English name given by Nippon Animation is "Romeo and the Black Brothers". It is known in the Philippines as "Mga Munting Pangarap ni Romeo" (literally "Romeo's Simple Dreams").

Voiced by Ai Orikasa (Japanese) Louie Paraboles (Tagalog)Young optimistic boy, who often courageously helps those around him without self-regard. He offers himself to Luini for sale as a chimney sweep when his sick father cannot pay for a doctor. He is sent to Milan where he quickly learns the trade while always maintaining a positive attitude. After ten years he will marry Bianca, name their son Alfredo after his best friend, and brother-in-law.
Count Alfredo
Voiced by Fujita ToshikoRomeo's best friend, and in the anime series the heir to a large fortune. He and his sister Bianca were orphaned by their evil uncle Mauritio and aunt Graziella, who coveted the family wealth for themselves and therefore murdered Alfredo's parents by fire. In order to support Bianca, Alfredo sold his services as a chimney sweep to Luini. Drawing upon an old favor the King owed Alfredo's father, Alfredo and Bianca, with the help of Romeo and their friends, manage to thwart the villains.
The Black Brothers
A group of young chimney sweeps formed by Alfredo and Romeo, they consider each other as family and work together to solve conflict.
Luini, the God of Death
Voiced by Tetsuo KomuraA cruel man who visits towns to buy children, he goes as far as destroying the livelihood of Romeo's family in order to bind him under a contract. He later sells them as chimney sweeps making large sums of profit.
Countess Bianca
Voiced by Akemi OkamuraAlfredo's sister. For her Alfredo sold his services as a chimney sweep to Luini. She was captured by her evil uncle and aunt, rescued by the efforts of Romeo, Alfredo and the Black Brothers.

Voiced by Nobuyuki HiyamaThe leader of a juvenile street gang named the Wolves who consider themselves rivals of the Black Brothers. Despite his tough nature, he believes in Honor and does not tolerate cheating which was proven when he did not approve of his co-member Tashoni who used a switchblade in an attempt to defeat Romeo, when both his and Alfred/Romeo's groups agreed not to use weapons. He also does not fight the sick when he stopped himself from attacking Alfred when he found out that the latter was ill.
Voiced by Aya IshizuA tough, red-haired girl who is a member of Giovanni's gang. Although starting off as an enemy of the Black Brothers, she gradually adopts a more friendly attitude towards them, largely because she develops a crush on Alfredo.
