RWBY Volume 8, the latest installment of Rooster Teeth’s beloved and award-winning animation, premieres November 7. Thousands tuned in live to the RWBY panel at RTX at Home today and were the first to see the teaser trailer and learn the long-awaited premiere date.
In RWBY Volume 8, our heroes’ worst fears have finally been realized: Salem is here, and the timing couldn’t be worse for the divided Kingdom of Atlas. Fear has turned friends into enemies, while doubt threatens to splinter humanity’s remaining allies. With both Salem and Ironwood stacking the odds against them, and the fate of Remnant at stake, it’s up to team RWBY to make their play before it’s too late.
In a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, humanity’s hope lies with powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant’s protectors.
RWBY is the first western-style anime to be distributed in Japan and is produced by Rooster Teeth in Austin, Texas and stars the voices of Lindsay Jones as Ruby Rose, Barbara Dunkleman as Yang Xiao Long, Arryn Zech as Blake Belladonna, and Karla Eberle as Weiss Schnee.
