''RWBY'' (pronounced "Ruby") is an American anime-influenced animated web series and media franchise created by Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. It is set in the fictional world of Remnant, where young people train to become warriors (called "Huntsmen" and "Huntresses") to protect their world from monsters called Grimm. The name RWBY is derived from the four main characters' forenames: Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang, as well as their associated theme colors; Red, White, Black and Yellow, and their combined team name: Team RWBY. Following several promotional trailers, the first episode was screened at the Rooster Teeth convention event RTX and then released on their website in July 2013. Subsequent episodes were released approximately weekly, first to Rooster Teeth's subscribers and then to YouTube a week later. The series became a viral hit, and a second season, subtitled ''Volume 2'', was released in July 2014. Oum died in 2015, during production of the third season for the series. This resulted in a delay in the production, as well as an overall shift in the series production and release schedule. Despite the creator's death, the remaining crew members confirmed their intention to continue the series, and ''Volume 3'' was released in 2015 as planned. Meanwhile, the first two seasons were released to home media and made available on streaming services such as Netflix and Crunchyroll, the latter of which would include releases of the current season in their simulcasts. In October 2016, the fourth season was released. The series has also been dubbed in Japanese and broadcast by Tokyo MX, in partnership with Warner Bros. Japan. Rooster Teeth released a video game called ''RWBY: Grimm Eclipse'', as well as a spin-off series called ''RWBY Chibi'' in 2016. As of March 2021, the website has aired eight volumes. Rooster Teeth announced volumes eight and nine on October 3, 2019. The eighth volume premiered on November 7, 2020. The ninth volume is currently in production.

Development

''RWBY'' had been a long-standing concept of Oum's for years before it began development. Towards the end of his work on the 10th season of Rooster Teeth's ''Red vs. Blue'', he developed the color-coding approach to character names and design as a hook for the series. During production on ''Red vs. Blue'' season 10, Oum asked series creator Burnie Burns if they could produce ''RWBY'' following the conclusion of that season. Burns, worried for the production schedule, told Oum "If you finish Season 10, then you can do whatever you want." Production on ''RWBY'' began as intended, with the first trailer being finished within two weeks and premiering after the credits of the ''Red vs. Blue'' season 10 finale on November 5, 2012. Oum designed the characters with assistance from artist Ein Lee, utilizing designs inspired by classic fairy tale characters. Each character has an associated color, and it is the first letters of the main character's colors, red, white, black, and yellow, that give the series its name. The characters' names also share the same letter and the meaning as the colour (e.g. "Weiss Schnee" translates to "snow white" in German). The series was originally written by Oum, along with fellow Rooster Teeth employees Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross. Oum was initially concerned about a story focusing on female characters being developed by a primarily male crew, but said they managed to do well developing the female characters. Regarding the design, Oum wanted to "present a two-dimensional, toon-shaded look, but with all of the depth and complexity of a 3D-animated production". Seasons 1 to 3 were animated by Rooster Teeth's internal animation team using Smith Micro's Poser software, out of assets built on Autodesk Maya. Starting in Season 4, episodes are now being animated in Maya. The series' music is composed by Jeff Williams, who previously composed the soundtracks for Seasons 8–10 of ''Red vs. Blue'', and features vocals by Williams' daughter, Casey Lee Williams.

Web series

The story takes place in the world of Remnant, composed of four kingdoms that are plagued by malevolent creatures known as the "Creatures of Grimm". Prior to the events of the series, the world was overseen by two opposing deities, the Gods of Light and Darkness. Humanity is obliterated by the gods due to the actions of Salem, a vengeful woman cursed with immortality for trying to manipulate them into reviving her beloved Ozma. Ozma was subsequently reincarnated into a world abandoned by the gods, to guide a new human race towards harmony. Eventually, the discovery of the element Dust triggers a technological and industrial revolution among humans. In the present day, having formed a cabal to guard their world's secrets, Ozma's current incarnation Ozpin establishes academies in the four kingdoms of Remnant to train students to battle malevolent creatures known as the Grimm. The academies secretly conceal four relics that, if united, would summon the gods back to Remnant to judge humanity. The series focuses on four girls that enrolled in Beacon Academy in the kingdom of Vale: Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna (of the half-human, half-animal Faunus race), and Ruby's half-sister Yang Xiao Long. Together, they form team RWBY ("ruby"). At the time of their formation, numerous Dust thefts are carried out in Vale by local crime lord Roman Torchwick with the aid of the White Fang, a pro-Faunus terrorist group. Team RWBY proceeds to investigate their connection to Salem's apprentice Cinder Fall, and her scheme to destroy Beacon and plunge Remnant into chaos. Throughout the first volume, team RWBY (Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang) and team JNPR ("juniper") (Jaune, Nora, Pyrrha, and Ren) are introduced. In this volume, the main characters attend Beacon Academy, and throughout the episodes the audience sees what the lives at Beacon Academy are like. At the end of the volume, it expands the view of the world in which RWBY takes place. In the second volume, the main characters have settled into the academy and have become comfortable in their lifestyle. There is an introduction and uncovering more details about antagonists within the show. The next volume shows the Vytal Festival Tournament. This tournament takes place amongst many fighters and students. While this tournament is proceeding, antagonists within the show begin their plan they have created. In volume four, the two teams are separated amongst each other to different parts of the world. Each new group has problems and situations they must handle within their part of the world. In volume five, Ruby, Nora, Jaune, Ren, and Qrow finally reach their destination. Others plan to meet up but take a detour, while others continue to deal with problems wherever they split up previously. In the next volume, the team is successful in getting what they needed from their destinations, but things do not go as planned as they are separated again. In volume seven, they successfully arrive at the kingdom of Atlas and work with others towards a common goal. However, the antagonists are continuing to cause chaos and destruction and growing as a looming threat. In the final current volume, the team continues to defend from previous forces of evil and even the kingdoms own ruler.

Promotion

A series of four promotional trailers, one for each lead character, were released. They were primarily produced by Oum and assistant animator Shane Newville. Each trailer begins by unveiling one of the four primary characters and then showing a detailed action sequence. The "Red" trailer was shown after the credits for ''Red vs. Blue's'' season 10 finale in November 2012. It was followed by the "White" trailer in February 2013. The "Black" trailer was unveiled at a PAX East panel at the end of March and was the first to include voice-acted dialogue. Following the premiere of the "Black" trailer, Oum noted with regret that the first two trailers were shorter and had less character development. The "Yellow" trailer was shown at Rooster Teeth's A-Kon panel on June 1, 2013. Music from the trailers was sold as digital downloads at several online retailers. On July 5, 2013, at the ''RWBY'' panel for their RTX 2013 event, Rooster Teeth premiered the first episode of ''RWBY'', and would post the episode to their website on July 18.

Release

Following the premiere of ''RWBY'' in July 2013, Rooster Teeth posted new episodes for the first season, subtitled ''Volume 1'', streaming weekly on their website, with access two hours early for their sponsors. The new episode would be uploaded to YouTube the next week. On August 16, 2013, streaming site Crunchyroll announced it would simulcast ''RWBY''. ''Volume 1'' ran for 16 episodes, varying in length. ''Volume 1'' concluded in November 2013, and was then released to DVD and Blu-ray. The second season, subtitled ''Volume 2'', was screened at RTX on July 4, 2014, and premiered on July 24. It consisted of 12 episodes, with the final episode released on October 30, after which it was released on DVD and Blu-ray. On February 1, 2015, Rooster Teeth announced that both volumes of ''RWBY'' so far were available for streaming on Netflix. ''Volume 3'' premiered on October 24, 2015 along with an episode of the ''RWBY'' backstory series ''World of Remnant''. For ''Volume 4'', Rooster Teeth producer and co-director Gray G. Haddock said that Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross were writing for the series. The season debuted on October 22, 2016. In January 2017, a fifth season was announced to be in development, and was released on October 14. In 2017, Rooster Teeth announced that Rooster Teeth First members would get episodes one week earlier than the general public. On September 15, 2018, Rooster Teeth CEO Matt Hullum announced that ''RWBY'' Volume 6 will be released exclusively on the company's website. This decision was made after many of Rooster Teeth's videos on YouTube were demonetized for various reasons. Instead, Volume 6 was released per episode on a weekly basis in YouTube alongside the Volume 7 premiere at Rooster Teeth's website on November 2, 2019. Volume 8 premiered during November 7, 2020 and the series went into a hiatus during December 19 of the same year. Premieres resumed on February 6, 2021.

Other media



Video games

For Rooster Teeth's anniversary in 2014, fan Jordan Scott created a video game based on ''RWBY'', titled ''RWBY: Grimm Eclipse'', using the Unity game engine. It was in development for a total of five months. Based on the events in the first trailer, the demo was a "hack 'n slash survival" featuring Ruby facing escalating waves of Grimm attacks. Richard Eisenbeis of Kotaku praised its combo system, which "excellently mirrordits animated counterpart", and its unlockable skills, saying, "you'll feel like an unstoppable badass akin to Ruby in the series." At RTX 2014, Rooster Teeth announced that they had hired Scott, and officially picked up the game. An early demo of the game was available for consumers to play at the event, and the game's title was changed from ''"Grim Eclipse"'' to ''"Grimm Eclipse"'' to match the spelling of the creatures in the show. Rooster Teeth CEO Matt Hullum stated, "''RWBY'' is a natural choice for us to focus on for our first in-house produced video game. Fans can expect that we will bring the same level of originality in action, comedy and design to the video game that has made the ''RWBY'' animated series such a hit." On December 1, 2015 the game was released as an Early Access title on Steam, with the full PC release on July 5, 2016. The game was released for macOS on October 13, 2016, and was later released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 17, 2017. A definitive version of the game containing all DLC is set to be released for the Nintendo Switch on May 13, 2021. The game allows one to four of the main characters in any combination(s) to battle through waves of Grimm. They are also on the trail of a mysterious company and its founder. The action takes place in the Emerald Forest, Mountain Glenn, Forever Fall and ultimately to an island named after the antagonist, Doctor Merlot. At the Evo 2017 gaming event, it was announced that the fighting game ''BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle'' would feature cross-over characters from ''BlazBlue'', ''Persona 4 Arena (Ultimax)'', ''Under Night In-Birth'', and ''RWBY'', followed by ''Arcana Heart'', ''Senran Kagura'' and ''Akatsuki Blitzkampf'' as of 2019.

Each episode consists of several scenes where aspects of RWBY's characters are usually exaggerated for comic effect.

A third season started in January 2018, shortly after the main show's Volume 5 ended.

Appearances in other media

Yang and Weiss appeared as combatants in the online series ''Death Battle'', where they fought Tifa Lockhart from ''Final Fantasy VII'' and Mitsuru Kirijo from ''Persona 3,'' respectively. The series creator, Ben Singer, talked with Oum about including a ''RWBY'' character on ''Death Battle'' before Oum's passing. Ruby, Blake, and Yang appeared as combatants in ''Death Battle's'' spin-off series ''DBX'', where they fought Ragna the Bloodedge from ''BlazBlue'', Inuyasha from Inuyasha, and Katsuki Bakugo from ''My Hero Academia'', respectively.

The filmmakers decided to bring in the references suggested by Abra's portrayer Kyliegh Curran, who is a fan of ''RWBY''.

Music

The music for all volumes of ''RWBY'' has been composed primarily by Jeff Williams, with additional composition by Steve Goldshein, Mason Lieberman, and Alex Abraham. Williams was a member of the band Trocadero, who did the music for Rooster Teeth's ''Red vs. Blue'', and eventually composed by himself the music for the three seasons of ''Red vs. Blue'' that preceded ''RWBY''. Most of the vocals are provided by Williams' daughter Casey Lee Williams, with some additional vocals by Lamar Hall and Sandy Casey. The soundtrack features a variety of genres, most notably intense, fast-paced rock music. In an interview with Rooster Teeth, Williams mentioned that he uses his lyrics to foreshadow future events on occasion. In developing the songs, Williams uses the show's script and picks out random words and phrases that he thinks are cool. He would also get advanced knowledge as to the character's development, their background stories and lives. He then picks out the emotions related to the scene, adds tempo, drumbeats, rhythm, and eventually composes the song from there.

Reception



Critical response

Commentators discussing the promotional trailers lauded the show's animation style and its musical soundtrack. The trailers prompted enthusiastic anticipation for the series premiere. When the first episode premiered at RTX, it was popular with attendees to the point that seating was full at all three screenings. Amanda Rush, writing for Crunchyroll, noted the anime and Western influences of the series, and praised it as "quick-witted, exciting, lovely to look at" saying fans of anime would enjoy it. The ''Yakima Herald-Republic'' called it "thrilling" and "captivating" and praised its "beautiful" 3D character animation. The ''Austin Chronicle'' described the premiere as making Oum the "rock star" of Rooster Teeth. The series has reportedly contributed to a 9% increase in views for Rooster Teeth's official YouTube channel. ''Kotakus Richard Eisenbeis praised the series for its clever use of fairytale elements, fun and enjoyable dialogue, and the fighting choreography, but was critical about the short nature of the episodes, stating that, "The biggest drawback in doing a micro-series ... is that there is precious little time for good characterization". He was also critical of the technical issues of the animation, mentioning that the animation is good when the audience is unable to see the character's feet. He believes that ''RWBY'' is "a good first step into a world of possibilities."

Associations with anime

Lindsay Jones (Ruby Rose) said "We were worried about the reception we’d get, since we’re a western company producing something normally related to Japan. Funnily enough, we showed our Japanese cohorts ''RWBY'' and they started arguing about whether it was anime or not! But seeing the reception from audiences is so surreal, and we never expected it." A Movie Pilot blog listed the ''RWBY'' as anime topic among its "flame wars you don't want to be part of". Anime News Network writers Paul Jensen and James Beckett wrote: "We don't have any formal reviews of RWBY here on ANN, but it is kind of cool to see an American production make it to the release encyclopedia." Michael Mauer of ''The Cornell Daily Sun'' wrote that the issue was still being debated among the anime community, while Sabrina Pyun of ComicsVerse wrote "The show is known for many things, from its dubious status as an anime to its unique 3D animation style." However, mainstream news articles dated after Hullum's statement and previewing later seasons and the franchise have referred to ''RWBY'' as an American anime, including ''Variety'', Collider, iDigitalTimes, ''Entertainment Weekly'', ''Adweek'', and ''Deadline Hollywood''.
