So what can fans expect for the rest of RWBY Volume 8? In one word, Lindsay Jones described it as a “spectacle” and praised the animation. “Reading what I read in the script, I feel like anytime I read the scene descriptions, I get really into it and to see that come into fruition animation-wise, is a whole different story. That translation is beautiful and those animators are wizards.” Adding to that, Kerry Shawcross tells fans to expect a lot to come out this season. “A very dense season is what I will say.”
RWBY (pronounced “Ruby”) is an American anime-styled 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.
