Synopsis

The story takes place in the world of Remnant, which is filled with supernatural forces and shadowy creatures known as the "Creatures of 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 or Huntresses.

The series focuses on four girls, each with her own unique weapon and powers. Together, they form team RWBY at Beacon Academy in the city of Vale, where they are trained to become Huntresses alongside team CRDL (pronounced "cardinal"), team JNPR (pronounced "juniper"), team SSSN (pronounced "sun") and team CFVY (pronounced "coffee").

Background

The manga itself is a prequel to the original animated series, and delves into the circumstances surrounding the four main character teasers.

The series is simulpub in English as a part of VIZ Media's Weekly Shonen Jump lineup.

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

In my opinion this is the worst manga currently serialized by Jump. Perhaps if you watched the original anime, you might enjoy this, but if you've never seen it, don't bother.

For me the worst part is the art. There are rarely any backgrounds or basic details like shading. The whole thing is a jarring white and black, and its almost impossible to tell what in the world is going on. For a series that relies heavily on the art to convey whats going on (dialog and exposition is minimal), clear art is a must. I mean, even ONE draws better than this.
