RWBY: Volume 4 (2016/Flatiron Films/Rooster Teeth/Cinedigm Blu-ray w/DVD)

Picture: B/C+ Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: B+

Ever since the fall of Beacon Academy, Grimm has taken over the land and the forces of evil are growing stronger begun searching for the power of the 4 Maidens. Governments and organizations are all too busy blaming each other, scrambling for political positions and the hunters and huntresses are scattered to the wind. Meanwhile, Team RWBY has been shattered and broken, each one of the girls must face their own demons in RWBY: Volume 4 (2016).

The forces of evil have destroyed Beacon Academy and the Director is missing. Team RWBY has been separated. Ruby has joined another team fight the ever increase Grimm throughout the land. Weiss has moved back home, only to be trapped and used by her father as a political pawn for her family business. Blake has returned to her homeland, only to discover the White Fang Extremists has already taken over her home. Yin faces her own wounds and PTSD. Now, they must follow and search for the legendary power of the 4 Maidens to stop those forces of evil.

It is good to see a new chapter RWBY, you can always tell with the increase CGI quality is a good sign more people are watching. It is a fantasy filled adventure world with young heroes and heroines fighting evil. They discover a legendary power and it is a race between good and evil that could change the fate of their world, but this works well.

Once again, the 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is a solid, consistent performer, joining Volume 3 as the best in the series so far, leaving the anamorphically enhanced DVD passable at best. Both offer lossy English Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes which shows this is well mixed and recorded, but yet again, the Blu-ray should have had a lossless option, especially since surrounds are good here. Extras include behind the scenes featurettes, audio commentaries and trailers.
