Rooster Teeth's RWBY

Trailers:
-Red "Red like Roses"
-White "Mirror Mirror"
-Black "From Shadows"
-Yellow "Burn"

Episode 1.

Ok, this particular new webseries I've been following for awhile, and am a huge fan of Monty Oum's work, and it's essentially the guy's dream project.

The first episode I personally liked. It does feel a lot like what you would see in an anime, and their are aspects that "feels" a lot like Final Fantasy. Wasn't too thrilled initially about what I saw with the voice acting, but the actual episode itself is MUCH better than what was in the trailers.

(and as mentioned in the thread title, if any of you have wondered what the hell happened to Dead Fantasy, this series is why)

Thoughts thus far?

I've been excited since the Red Trailer but, this has already went above and beyond my hopes for the series. There's so much they can do. I wish i could form better sentences but I'm tired and it's low on the list right now. Long story short, i loved the first episode.

And of course, since this is an RT production, plenty of quote-worthy moments!

-"Hey you! Put your hands in the air!!!'
-*puts down headphones* "...huh?"
-"I said, put your hands in the air!"
-"...are you...robbing me?"
-"YES!!!"
-"Oooooohhhhhhh......"
*punch to da face*

(And other stuff regarding bee's knees)

Yea, that was Jen Taylor as the narrator.

Funny, I actually mistook Glinda's VA as Princess Celestia's VA, but I'm told it was actually just Tex's VA.

But I swear, the voice was freakin' uncanny to me...

Good first ep. Not a big fan of anime myself, but I love the RT dudes and ladies.

So I guess I have something family friendly from Rooster Teeth I can show my nephew, then. Swell.

-Vomit Boy is our heroine's potential love interest/platonic male friend
-Dude's name is Jean-Arc.....huh.

Weiss comes out as a jerk initially with the dust tube incident. However, given that dust is basically superpowers in a can I guess that makes sense.

Still kind of weird seeing something from Rooster Teeth without cursing.

Nothing wrong with expanding your projects into different genres though, eh?

Its fine, very cliched and very anime-ish (in both style, story and execution) but for a free webshow it is very high quality...

Only personal gripe I have I would have liked to see some black people...and not just the silhouetted extras...

Isn't it funny that Weiss was ranting on about being careful with the dust when she was the one swinging it around creating a dust cloud.

Well this series is supposed to be Monty's personal homage to the anime that he likes, so if any of it feels familiar...chances are it's supposed to be like that.

In other words, RWBY is to Monty Oum what Pacific Rim is to Guillermo del Toro. X3

Watched the first episode, and pretty interested, though I was expecting Red to be a more of a strong, silent type after her trailer, and after having that image for a few months, the real deal was a bit... jarring.

Though I'm getting used to it. I'll definitely be following it.

I'm enjoying it so far, but Weiss is far from what i expected. Though I'm hoping they have a Caboose as well.

It looks like that's going to Blake's role and not Ruby's.

So we've got one; just now little ol' Red.

Well we got Vomit Bo- er, Jean Arc for the awkward comic relief. XP

I'm liking what I'm seeing, although I'll wait for Ep. 2 to come out on YT instead of blip.tv.

The series is fun, the only complaint so far is that the episodes seem too short.
