Cartoon Description: RWBY

Notice: RWBY is not Japanese animation! It is a cartoon produced in the United States. However, because it has a style that is strongly influenced by anime, I have decided to include it on this site. If you're one of those hard-core anime purists who can't stand seeing a non-anime series on a site dedicated to Japanese animation, then just press the Back button on your web browser and pretend like you were never here.

On the world of Remnant, there exists the Beacon Academy, a special school set-up to train the youth of the world, many of them with fantastic skills and abilities, into becoming hunters and huntresses, for which they protect Remnant from hostile forces trying to destroy it. Ruby Rose, a fifteen year-old girl, has qualified to attend Beacon Academy two years sooner than usual due to her unique abilities. She, along with three other girls – heiress Weiss Schnee, loner Blake Belladonna and Ruby's half-sister Yang Xiao Long, make-up Team RWBY, and together they go through the usual pitfalls and crises that is school life, all the while protecting their world.

A word of note – series creator Monty Oum died of a bad allergic reaction during a medical procedure on February 1, 2015. However, Rooster Teeth Productions has committed themselves to the production of the third season of RWBY. But the time of release has yet to be announced.
