Okay, you caught me. This isn’t REALLY a trailer. It’s the intro to the upcoming second season of the highly anticipated web series, RWBY. Haven’t heard of it? That’s not hard to believe, as it’s essentially one of those shows that if you happen to have heard of it, you’ve probably already devoured all of Volume 1 and are eagerly awaiting Volume 2. It’s not really one of those shows you eagerly introduce to friends either. You either love it or hate it. I’m definitely in the ‘love it’ category, and I have good reason to be (albeit I’ll save that reason for a different post/review down the line). Without further ado, the intro to the second season.
RWBY is a Rooster Teeth production created by Monty Oum, a web-based animator. The first season (or volume) includes 16 episodes of varying length between 3 and 15+ minutes all of which can be streamed online free, or found on Crunchyroll. In total, Volume 1 adds up to just under 2 hours of footage, which is conveniently movie-length. If you grab RWBY: Volume 1 on Blu-Ray ($15.96) you get the option of watching all the episodes in a movie format.
A review for RWBY: Volume 1 is forthcoming. Prepare ye-selves.
