In the world of Remnant, humans and Faunus—human-animal hybrids—carry on their everyday lives despite the omnipresent threat of monstrous Grimm. Dedicated Huntsmen and Huntresses battle Grimm with both customized weapons and their own "Semblances," unique abilities derived from the energy of one's soul. Some warriors also utilize a crystallized energy propellant, "Dust," to bestow their weapons with elemental properties. In this dangerous line of work, rigorous training is required to stay alive. To that end, each of Remnant's four Kingdoms have established schools to properly groom children holding aspirations of becoming licensed Huntsmen.

At Beacon Academy in the Kingdom of Vale, a promising group of future Huntresses make their debut as Team RWBY. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long each come from different backgrounds and often butt heads as a result. However, when they cooperate, they are a formidable force who have even attracted the attention of Beacon's headmaster Professor Ozpin. Alongside fellow students such as those in Team JNPR, the young prodigy Ruby and her friends engage in adventures which pit them against an extremist Faunus group known as the White Fang. Every explosive encounter also brings them closer to the true villains orchestrating conflicts from the shadows.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The RWBY manga is based on the independent American 3D-CGI animated series by Rooster Teeth created by Monty Oum, who passed away on February 1, 2015 due to an allergic reaction. The manga itself is a prequel to the original animated series, and delves into the circumstances surrounding the four main character teasers.

The series was simulpub in English as a part of VIZ Media's Weekly Shonen Jump lineup, and physically published on January 16, 2018.

the story mainly recovers the trailers with added detail, the site I read the manga at actually has 15 chapters, and chapters 10-15 are the only chapters that add to the story. with that said I very much enjoyed the added detail into the trailer recap, as well as the extra story the manga add, while I may be bias since I'm quiet a RWBY fan I'm giving the story 8 (I'd also suggest reading the chapter MAL doesn't list). the art was pretty good and I enjoyed seeing characters I had only seen as 3D models in a 2D Anime/Manga art style so read more

Upon entering my local bookstore for the third time, I peered through every shelf in the manga section in search for a interesting light novel to satisfy myself before Nekomonogatari White comes out, and for another volume of Tokyo Ghoul Re.

After a couple of minutes of looking from shelf to another shelf, I finally stumbled upon the RWBY manga, which I thought after reading the first two chapters last time online that it would never be published through one of the U.S. retail stores.

Since I liked the ONA series, I grabbed one copy of the manga, bought it along with Juuni Taisen, and went read more

This is not on MyAnimelist by the way. Unsure how, but not officially considered an anime..

There are 6 season here. The main writer Monty Oum wrote Seasons 1 - 5, and then some other guy stepped in for the final season. There is a reason why I don't care to understand who that last guy was.

This anime has the craziest action scenes ever and done completely in 3D graphics engines. It's really nice to look at and allows battle scenes to take it to the next level. I think that's what I appreciated the most. The actual story itself isn't super awesome, though it read more

Story 8/10
This series is exactly what you'd expect it to be. That said, the story is very "anime." With that in mind I cant say the series stands out much so far. Everything that you'd expect to be in a fantasy anime, you'll find in the RWBY manga. Evil fantastical creatures, yep. Giant Mechs, yep. Cute super powered High school girls, yep. That said, despite the series being predictable it works very well.

Art 10/10
Now what this series lacks in story, it makes up in its amazing art. The series is being illustrated by DOGS illustrator Shirow Miwa. The art is extremely detailed and read more
