This series does have its fans. Congrats to the fans for having this on CR.

For the record, I'm in the "This is not anime." group.




If I watched everything CR had on it, and removed every work of art that is of objectively less quality than RWBY, I'd have to take down a fairly large chunk of the website. They'd save some bandwidth, that's for sure. Just for the record, you do not need to pay a fee to access the majority of the content on this site. I have no idea what you're trying to say.

Thank god for opinions, huh?


Yes, thank goodness for opinions and the power to re-read and digest what is written. If you are paying for something, then you expect better quality. While there are those who don't pay, I am a paying member. I truly doubt that CR has a lot of anime that is of less quality than this title.

That's your opinion and this is mine. Let's agree to disagree.

very block like CG, but the voice acting works for it so far, do not mind the short episodes, though the CG takes much getting used to when watching it.

Get past the fact that it's graphics aren't too sharp and it's an awesome series. It's a creative arty look and I love it. You don't buy games or anime for how sharp the backgrounds look so h8ers go ahead and h8 you just look shallow if your opinion is based on the looks

I had found this on YouTube a little while back. Quite surprised to see it up on Crunchyroll and honestly I'm glad. It should be here. It's in my queue, think I'll re-watch the eps that are out tonight. Thanks CR!

...and to the people who don't like the animation, how can you say no to this?

I feel like I just got dissed. But, okay. Agreement to disagree complete. I do urge you to give this another chance somewhere down the line. Hopefully you do.

Or this!!

Then again, it's not necessarily indicative of the quality of the actual show as of now. Or at least not with much frequency.

If you're going by the quality of the production values there are A LOT of shows on CR with shoestring budgets that consist mostly of still frames and dialogue. The idea that RWBY isn't at least on par with most of the shows on CR is ridiculous.

I absolutely adore this series. i love the characters and the action. I'm not even annoyed about short eps, though i think they should merge all the eps into one later on.

That will be painful to read since RWBY does not have anywhere near the budget an anime series would have. (This is an assumption of course. I do not know Rooster Teeth's budget for the project.)

Honestly, if you think the quality is bad, you simply can't adapt to a different art form. It says more about yourself, than the show. You don't have to like it it, but if you think there isn't quality in the production, you're not looking at it objectively. The musical score alone is outstanding and the action sequences are far better choreographed than most anime. The background characters being shadows is in itself and art from (and anime have done this too). It works well here, as the series uses vivid colors to make the scenes pop. Yes, it looks like a video game, but that isn't an indicator of quality, it's a choice of production method. Again you don't have to like it, but at least be objective about the quality.

PS: Who cares that you pay for this site? This show has replaced precisely ZERO other shows from this site. It being here doesn't decrease the value of the other content that was already here. If you don't watch it, the value of your subscription doesn't go down, and if you do watch it and like it, the value of your subscription goes up. Where's the problem?
