Rooster Teeth has made many hit series over the years, but arguably their greatest is the one and only RWBY. An anime created by the late Monty Oum, the show focuses on four ladies in the realm of Remnant, and their journey to become Huntresses and to save their world from an ancient threat. The anime has gone on for five seasons, but because of the layout of the show, there’s a lot of stories still to be told.
Well, Viz Media is going to help with that, as they’re working to bring the RWBY universe alive in new ways via a manga, the first volume of which is set to release in just two weeks:
“Based on the hit Rooster Teeth series, an art and short story collection diving into the backstories of Team RWBY will debut later this month! RWBY OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGY: RED LIKE ROSES will be available at retailers everywhere on May 15th, and the volume will also be available the same day in a digital edition through the VIZ Manga app and partner storefronts!
Each volume of the OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGY features a different member of Team RWBY! In the first volume, RED LIKE ROSES, Ruby may be team leader, but she’s got insecurities just like the rest of us. In fact, her worries run deep. These all-new stories show how Ruby overcomes her shortcomings to be a true hero—and what drives her to do it! The second volume, available in August, will focus on Weiss Schnee; volumes featuring Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long will also be forthcoming! “
Here’s the official cover for the anthology:
