Yeah for awhile I was debating on starting a topic in the Anime Discussion about RWBY as well but the fact that there is so little information about it and whether or not it was an anime, I decided to hold off. Anyways now that the cat is out of the bag, you can head over to the RWBY wiki
to check out some of the theories by fans and bits of goodies released by people working on the series.
Personally I'm not too worried about the action part of it as Monty did all of the choreography and animation of the Red vs Blue machinima for example this
. The problem is that all that is known about the storyline is that it consists of teams such as RWBY (Ruby, Weiss, black + yellow) are being trained in a school/academy fighting against some antagonist. Also given that most RvB episodes are 5-8 minutes long, I'm not sure a lot of details can be fleshed out on the characters if this series follow that same format if it only lasts one season. But still I'm really psyched about this series due to passion shown by the people a part of the production.
Oh and the "Black" trailer will be released in PAX East on March 22nd at 1:00pm
