American Anime Spotlight: RWBY

It’s Monday night and we’re back with another exciting filler post! Last time we did a post about an American anime title we know growing up called Kappa Mikey from Nickelodeon. This time we’re back with another one that many fans know of, if you happen to be a fan of any projects/shows done buy the guys n’ girls at Rooster Teeth. (Famous for the Red vs. Blue series!) This one is heavily anime inspired; as it has gained major popularity throughout the community via Crunchyroll, as well as a manga series. Tonight we shine the American anime spotlight on a web series we like to call, RWBY!

For those of you who are veterans of the show (and have watched it all the way to its upcoming 6th season), you’re already aware of what to expect. For the ones who haven’t seen the series at all (and don’t want to be spoiled), we’ll give you the overview of what you’re in for once you decide to give it a shot.

The story is about four girls who have enrolled in Beacon Academy located in the kingdom of Vale; Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long who is Ruby’s half-sister. Together they live in the world of Remnant composed of four kingdoms that happen to be plagued by the Creatures of Grimm, as mankind battled for survival against these monsters until the discovery of an element that helped them fight back called Dust. These four women train to become huntresses and guardians of Dust by the mysterious Ozpin, as they battle against the evil forces of Roman Torchwick and the terrorist organization known as White Fang, to prevent Dust from falling into their hands.

Due to the series being anime-influenced you’ll find some usual tropes and funny moments that you’d normally see in traditional anime; such as the ‘sweatdrop’ and ‘waterfall tears’. There’s also a lot of action and other good stuff in this series as well, so if that’s something you’re into or happen to be looking for, then give this title a shot!

Well, that’s it for this post, but as always we’ve got more to come right here on D&A Anime Blog! Until next time, be kind to one another and stay awesome! 😉
