- 5 Seasons
In the world of Remnant, humanity finds itself facing extinction from monstrous and chaotic powers of lawlessness and greed. To the rescue comes Dust, a substance able to provide energy and magical abilities; with these, humans can fight the monsters and the forces of evil. The people who have been selected to fight for the good are called Hunters and Huntresses. They are trained in a special university called Beacon Academy. RWBY is an animated web series featuring a team of four girls (along with several boys with whom they are friends), who are students at Beacon Academy. Each girl has special powers and amazing fighting abilities. And each is associated with a color that marks her costume, weapon, and accessories. Ruby Rose, for example, wears flaming red; Weiss Schnee is dressed in white; Blake Belladonna is garbed in black; and Yang Xiao Long is dressed in yellow. The series title is an acronym of their names. As Team RWBY, Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang Xiao battle monumental dangers while also dealing with the usual angst suffered by kids in their late teens.
