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
A little standard with an unplaceable special something
I started watching the show out of sheer boredom one day after seeing the trailers and honestly I thought it was pretty wretched for the first episode or so, but I figured, since I gave Naruto back on cartoon network 5 episodes before discarding it, I may as well do the same here.
I don't regret the decision one bit. -
The show is certainly flawed; movement animations are stiff and a bit choppy, the story isn't looking to break into anything new(and frankly rushed character development a bit too quickly to be reasonable), and the voice acting instantly brought memories of 'Jill sandwich' to surface anew when I first heard it. Despite all this however, it has more promise than anything else I've seen recently.
There's something beautiful in the simple, but defined art style. The story leaves room to grow despite having and initial rush to it and while (as above) it's not breaking new ground, it's dancing on a sort of middle ground that's taking a bit from everything people have loved and putting it into a well made collage. The voice acting is up to improvement with time and the rather strange tone to it feels almost fitting by the end of the season. The animations may always seem a bit off, but I don't think you'll ever mistake RWBY for another show. -
Somehow this show grows on you, if you can get over the somewhat painful initial viewing. I'm definitely interested in what's to come in the future.
