A mysterious nomad traverses a western wasteland-but a price on his head sends him on the run from captors and bounty hunters, who all want to score big when they bring in the world's last magical being.
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
I'm not going to sugar coat it. Yes, most of the episodes are very short, even by anime/cartoon standards, and the voice acting is sometimes a bit off.
Saying that, this is the first time that Rooster Teeth have attempted this kind of show, so this season is basically a test run. As with all of RT's productions, you can tell that they are making this because they WANT to make it, not just to widen their appeal. When comparing it to other anime shows, you have to take into account that most of them have quite wealthy companies producing them, and this is being funded by Rooster Teeth alone. There wouldn't be much point pouring lots of funding into something that could be a complete failure. Expect a lot more from the next series.
The characters have plenty of room for character growth and when the fight scenes happen, you are so amazed by them that you no longer care how rare they are.
Overall, I would say that while there is lots of room for improvement, it is a great series to watch when you just want to take it easy and have a good time.
