RWBY: Anime Snow White?

The second trailer for RWBY is out, this time focussing on the character White.

I really hope that the rumors of this being an anime-style treatment of popular fairy tales winds up being true, because that would just be cool. Do I need any other reason?

The previous trailer, Red, featured a character who seems to be at least inspired by Red Riding Hood fighting a bunch of wolf-like creatures. While White is not as convincing of a match for Snow White, the fixation on mirrors in the lyrics is worth noting.

Fairy tale connection or not, this is shaping up to be another awesome web series from Rooster Teeth.

RWBY: Anime Red Riding Hood?

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Red vs. Blue, so I was excited to hear that Monty Oum (the lead animator on Red vs. Blue) is preparing yet another awesome series.

Not much is known about RWBY besides the trailer below, but it looks to provide a more modern treatment for Red Riding Hood and three other unknown characters, probably from the same folklore.

On a more general note, it’s comforting to see the steady rise in quality from such freely available online miniseries.
