Glad to see some english language animation making it onto CR. Just got through watching the first 5 eps (not hard at just over 6 minutes per ep). The computer animation is ok. I'd say the writing is the weakest aspect. If anyone asked for a thumbnail description I'd call the storyline a Harry Potter style clone. Maybe as it progresses it will develop its own flavor.

Technically it is an anime, since anime literally translates into "animation." Spongebob Squarepants would be called an anime in Japan, since they aren't familiar with the word "cartoon."

Also, RWBY has only started airing recently. It's a little too soon to judge on how good it is when we've only seen 4 very SHORT episodes of it.

It isn't anime. Cartoon doesn't equal anime. It's like people considering Avatar and Korra to be anime when it isn't. But that's neither here nor there. I still haven't bothered with it, the voice acting in the final trailers were atrocious. I think Red and White spoiled me and made me expect more.
But kudos to CR for snatching it up!

Nice! I love roosterteeth.com but at times their video player isn't the smoothest of players. Hopefully this will be on CR's streamer. Awesome.

Some of these people who are shouting "RWBY ISN'T ANIME. IT ISN'T EVEN GOOD," don't understand the fact that it's Monty Oum. If you watch Monty Oum's videos expecting a good story and good voice acting, you're going to have a terrible, terrible time. He's always made videos that kick ass and have quite a bit of humor in them, which is why Roosterteeth employed him, because he fits right in. Have you /seen/ the Red Vs Blue CGI scenes? You watch them for the action, not for the story.

Imagine if the English language (or any other western languages) used the word animation and never used cartoon. How much peaceful the anime community would have been on this subject... what am I saying, there would still be the biased ones who will find ways.

Although, in English, i'm pretty sure when movies are animated they are referred as Feature Animated Films, not feature cartoon films. So yeah, English.

As for RWBY, I've only seen the first episode and I enjoyed it. Will probably watch watch the rest (and future episodes) before I judge it completely. Nice to see it here on CR, It will help expand more on "western animation" inspired by "japanese anime" and more exposure for Monty Oum's work.

Im not a fan, especially not going to keep up weekly with this show.. I tried with the recent episodes (first 3) and I don't enjoy it at the least.
Maybe if I watch most of the show when it has been released at once it will leave a better impression.

I know it's early in the show but the beginning counts just as much as the rest of it.
