    Better than the original
    I couldn't stand the horrible English voices in the original. This was a lot better to listen to and watch! I only wish the rest of this series was dubbed.

    If you prefer to listen to Japanese voice acting then watch this and not the dub. Though, I read a comment that some parts of the show were left out but I'm not sure if they were telling the truth or not.

    I hope to see more released in ...

  • This is a unique series! And I bought 4 seasons...
    So I found all 5 released seasons on YouTube and binge-watched them all instead of doing homework.. I was just hooked and couldn't stop. I like the creatures of Grimm and as the series goes on, more characters get introduced and the battles just get better. If anyone has problem with the animation style, it gets better with each progressing season and the fights get better as the characters grow. ...

    4 Stars for at least a good dub.
    A lot of people say this is bad because it not only is the episode consistency not the same, but at lot of scenes were somehow altered or omitted out completely. If you want to watch RWBY, I suggest you watch the original English-language first (at least up to the end of Volume 3) before watching this condensed Japanese-language version. But in my opinion, it's better if you just stick with ...

  • This is not meant for japanese.
    I have been a fan of Japanese Anime for a long long time, and have enjoyed RWBY for what it is.

    As a series I never felt that RWBY really had the depth of writing or story telling that a GOOD anime/manga/lighnovel franchise would have. It was largely American anime fans attempt at making an animated short in the anime style. The world wasn't particularly complex, the settings and characters ...

    Not exactly the same line for line. Good on its own.
    Amazing how many 1 star 'reviews' out of supposed RWBY fans. Yes it's been edited and cut to fit in one season. You're only upset about what's not there because you know what's supposed to be there because you watched the original. What matters is whether or not this version stands on it's own, for someone who hasn't seen the original. I think it does. I actually saw someone complaining about ...

    Let's be fair it's not the original
    I agree that the English( the original version) is better, but typically the original usually is. I love watching the subs and hearing the Japanese voices, so I am excited to see that they dubbed this. I am fine with cutting clips out, it gives it a different pace. I would say have an open mind and have some fun, but if it's not for you that's fine.

    Cut down to the point that it feels like a trailer
    Couldn't make it through the first episode. It seems like they had the mandate to make it half as long in order to cut down on the amount of lines that need to be dubbed.

    The end result is that so many things are cut out that any sort of personality and characterization and even choreographic progression is completely lost.

    As the title says, it felt like i'm watching a trailer.

    Also ...

    I am enjoying this dubbed series
    All the criticism the other reviewers have been saying are true, but I still don't get the hate. I do get that they changed some of the story, but I guess I don't have that kind of OCD. I will simply refer back to the original version if I want to remember what is canon. I don't get why they did this, but it doesn't make me angry.

    I feel like the voice actors and actresses did a good job. I ...

    This show is not the RWBY i remebered
    If you have watched the original RWBY in English then you should in my opinion stick to it. Also all you newcomers to the show should also watch the English version first. Sometimes the cuts makes absolutly 0 sense so its hard to tag along in whats happening throughout the episodes, unless you have watched the original. They even cut the fights short and change lines (ex beginning of episode 1) ...

    Well worth watching! Especially if you're a fan of the original
    I understand why a lot of people are mad about the cut scenes from the original show but honestly I think the show's pacing is better now because of it. Already at episode two, with this version of course, the show already comes out guns blazing with one of the best fight scenes in RWBY, mind you there are many others lol. For newcomers who have't seen the original show this would be the best ...
