I was introduced to this series by Caleb doing a rendition of Red Like Roses. I figured any anime that produced a song of such caliber couldn't be bad. I giggled at the early anime graphics, but if you're gonna hate such a great story based off a start up company doing...ahem...start up anime graphics, then you just are a graphics snob. It's along the same lines of liking a song, but you don't understand the lyrics, or being "that guy" that only watches movies but never reads the book.
That said, RWBY is easy to love and with every volume, the story gets more detailed and the graphics get better as the years went by. If you're going to compare original source startup anime to South Park...I mean...you don't belong here. If you gave up after 5 minutes, you missed out on an amazing journey. If inclusiveness had A POSTER CHILD, this series would be it. RWBY reminds me of Doctor Who before it was destroyed by the White Fang. If you know what Trock was, you'll love this series. It shows masculine, feminine, and every flavor inbetween without preaching hate. It doesn't shame you for being, it includes you. Left, Right, Up Down, Sideways, Furry, Good, Evil, Chaotic Neutral, Young, Old. This world they created while full of strife has portrayed that life has meaning. That Love has the ultimate meaning. All the while, it doesn't get stale..because DEATH has meaning. Characters die in this anime, sometimes gruesomely. This is A WINNER as far as I'm concerned. I'm also obsessed with Ruby and Stormcrow.
