I don't even know if this can be put into the anime section, so whatever.

"RWBY" is a series that's being announced over the webs and stuff:

Well, it's by Monty Oum so that explains why it's so awesome. Very interesting to see just how good he's gotten over the years. Sure, Dead Fantasy was amazing as well, but there were some stylistic issues and minor animation hickups which made it flawed. This looks insanely professional.

The style in and of itself is very nice!

Also, GUN SCYTHE!? SE take note, if this was a game I would buy it immediately.

you can always search Ann or anidb to see if it is an anime. Rwby is not an anime so it is in the wrong section.

I knew it wasn't an anime... just didn't knew where to put it.

Exactly x)
I wouldn't absolutely mind watching 1h30min of videos like this(making a story). ^^

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 or 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  ;D

Well, that certainly looked pretty cool. My favorite was White as I like the finesse and magitech over the brute force fighting. Plus the shotgun/scythe was a bit too much, even for someone like me who has seen more shounen anime then is good for a person. Definately looking forward towards seeing anything that came from the guy who brought the world Dead Fantasy.

...and people say CGI is bad.

I hope the series will heavily feature the kind of music used in the trailers, since it was marvelous to say the least.

I thoroughly enjoyed both Red and White and I would love to watch Black and Yellow.
Aside from the animation, the music is astounding.



Just watched Black. I didn't care for it much. The voice acting was bleh.

Hmm... a bit confused about Black. I saw clear themes in first two like Red's giant weapon combined with short, strong fight movements enveloped in that red riding hood feel (except instead of one wolf, there were many werewolves). Or White imbued with elegance in both the fast fighting moves, the weapon and even the scenery around it. Not even to mention the whole mage thing going on.

Black on other hand is way different, the former two had songs in the background, here they have dialogues. then the dude steals the spotlight making me think of the chick as a sidekick. It simply didn't have the same aesthetic feel to it as the first two.

Cool action, lame characters. Meek girls with big guns killing stuff, yawn.
All you have to do is study it out. Just study it out.

Conflicted feelings about black
On one hand, her design is the best so far, I really like her style. She's part of a battle pair, that's always cool.
On one hand, her personality is a horrible goody-two-shoes. Her partner is way cooler than her.

Because we can!

After having seen Black, I change my opinion a bit; I hope, in vain, that the finished product will be a long music video without voice acting (think Interstella 5555).

Now that I would love. Interstella was OK, but I'd definitely enjoy the concept placed here.

I just watched them all and it was really weird to suddenly have voices in black. It was a little disconcerting for me  :-\

Between the poor voice acting, music that just didn't quite fit, and the giant enemy crab, this was very disappointing.
