Rooster Teeth has done it again; this season of RWBY looks even more gorgeous than the last. While many people may not think of RWBY as an Anime, and I do admit it strays outside the common conventions of what we usually categorize as an Anime, it’s an amazing show nonetheless. It has come a long way from the initial roots, and just keeps getting better.
Visually, this latest season is drop-dead gorgeous. The art is beautiful, the animation is smooth and crisp, and whoever did the colors was an absolute genius. The characters are interesting, the villains are charismatic and intriguing, and the story is borderline genius. I love dark fantasy works, and this is one of the best I’ve seen, period. The soundtrack is perfect, and so good that i’ll listen to the songs in my everyday life.
If you haven’t, I would strongly recommend you watch RWBY. The first season is a bit rough around the edges, but it’s done nothing but improve over the last 5 years. It’s a great coming-of-age tale in a dark world, with some of the most incredible action sequences you’ll ever see. Trust me, it’s worth the watch.
