RWBY: BEACON - Vol 1-3 (2013 - 2015/New Video Group/Rooster Teeth/Flatiron Films Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray Set)

Now get RWBY Volumes 1-3 all in one packet under the Beacon name, though this looses DVDs from some previous sets. Ruby Rose, along with Weiss, Blake and Yang make up team RWBY, four high power girls defending the kingdom from the forces evil (and teenage drama and angst). As Ruby and her friends train together at Beacon Academy to become hunters and huntresses, they learn what it means to be a team and what it means to be to be a heroine. As team RWBY competes in the Festival Competition, little do they know their beloved Academy, Kingdoms are all in danger. Grimm is on the rise. And evil is in the air and they are after the power of the 4 legendary maidens.

All Ruby wanted was to become a huntress at Beacon Academy, to protect the Kingdom from the wild Grimm of the forest and the mysterious White Fang organization. As Ruby barely manages pass her classes, she and team RWBY more than proves their worth in the field, but evil knows no bounds and launches surprise attack during the school tournament, they framed RWBY, taken over their own military robot army, lured an army of Grimm into the city and then sneaked the White Fang Army in as well. With no army to defend them, and no back up, the only thing that stands between total destruction of the kingdom is RWBY and students of Beacon.

From the creators of Red Vs. Blue, RWBY is like a gigantic mix blend of gaming animation, comedy, action with anime style characters with gaming drama/plot/story with high powered girls and boys. You can read more about the separate volumes elsewhere on this site.

The 1080i 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is pretty good throughout if not always great, while the lossy Dolby Digital mixes are not bad, but why no lossless or 1080p for that matter? Extras include a ton of stuff including commentaries, making of the show, photo gallery, World of Remnant and trailers.
