After much anticipation, RWBY has returned! And with it, one of my favorite characters: Ruby Rose. (Or maybe I just really like cosplaying as her; I haven’t decided yet.)
The first episode was called Chapter 1, Round 1
The synopsis from Rooster Teeth’s website:
The Vytal Festival Tournament is the ultimate battle of skill, pitting the world’s most powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses in training against one another… and it’s finally here! Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are back for a season of over-the-top action, and they’re not alone. New fighters from around Remnant are ready to bring glory to their kingdom, but there are those among them with a far more sinister goal in mind…
Just like previous episodes, they wasted no time getting to the fight scenes (even though they were for a festival). (Don’t worry, no spoilers!)
It seems the series is going to start introducing more characters and stories. Frankly, I’m glad. There have been so many characters that have received brief cameos and quickly disappeared that I would love to get to know better.
And because I promised no spoilers, I’m going to have to shut up about the rest of the episode.
So, if you missed it, the 1st episode is available for viewing on Rooster Teeth’s website (for free) or on Crunchyroll (the cost on Crunchyroll is about 7 Honda Civic commercials – at least that’s what they played while we watched it. And yes, the exact same commercial. 7 times. It was lovely.)
I can’t wait for the second episode to air!
