The story takes place in the world of Remnant, which is filled with supernatural forces and shadowy creatures known as the Grimm. Prior to the events of the series, mankind waged a battle of survival against the Grimm before discovering the power of a mysterious element called Dust, which allowed them to fight back against the monsters. In the present day, Dust is used to power magical abilities and weapons. Those who use these abilities to battle the Grimm are known as Huntsmen and Huntresses. The series focuses on four girls, each with her own unique weapon and powers. Together, they form a team at Beacon Academy in the city of Vale, where they are trained to become Huntresses.Written by
RWBY is definitely the kind of show that appeals to a certain kind of audience. I happen to like the fantasy genre and perhaps am biased towards it, but that doesn't change my opinion on the overall quality of the show. Roosterteeth is known for putting out quality internet humour and while this isn't their niche, I think that the show is really good for what it is. I've seen a lot of people on the internet hating on it, because it's "much lower quality than other animes" but that's because it's not trying to be on par with Japanese animation companies many of which have well established companies with hundreds of employees. Roosterteeth has approximately 25 people actually working on RWBY and considering the level of quality that comes from that, it's something to be in awe of. The show itself is a more creative style of animation using 3d rendered models instead of 2d drawings. The fight sequences are definitely the highlight of the show, with beautiful choreography and interesting aspects to the fights, such as weapons. The characters leave a little to be desired as they have not really gone into depth about their individual character traits, back stories or interactions between one another, but i expect them to be planning it for one of the upcoming seasons. All in all, RWBY is an amazing fantasy animation show that will provide plenty of entertainment now and in the future.
