SAN FRANCISCO, CA—From Bunta Kinami comes RWBY: The Official Manga based on the international hit anime series from Rooster Teeth and Monty Oum.
RWBY is set in the magical world of Remnant where four girls — the incredibly talented Ruby Rose; heiress Weiss Schnee; mysterious fighter Blake Belladonna; and Ruby’s supportive & fiery older sister, Yang Xiao Long — are Beacon Academy students training to become Huntresses who fight creatures known as “Grimm.” Together, they combine their unique strengths to form the ultimate girl group – RWBY.
Training to become Remnant’s greatest monster huntresses is not the only challenge for team RWBY as they adjust to a new school, new relationships, and, of course, teenage drama. For Ruby, battling Grimm seems much easier than dealing with Weiss Schnee!
Originating in Japan and now published in English by VIZ Media, RWBY: The Official Manga welcomes a new era of Western content in a dominant Japanese medium. The establishment of empowered female protagonists are breaking down barriers for female representation in Shonen manga.
