Smart Ruby, princess Weiss, athletic Blake, and Ruby’s older sister Yang are roommates at Beacon Academy hoping to become huntresses to kill Grimm in RWBY: The Official Manga Vol 1.
Who doesn’t like a school setting where the students are training to be something extraordinary? Harry Potter and the X-Men have both used it very successfully. And RWBY: The Official Manga Vol 1 is no different. Each girl has her strengths and weaknesses. But they will have to work together to pass the school initiation and battle the monstrous Grimm.
Overall, this is a beautiful manga interpretation of the famous anime. However, the plot is shortened in this version. I really liked the anime better but you may enjoy this version more. 3 stars.
Thanks to VIZ Media and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
