‘RWBY’ is an anime-style sci-fi adventure web series created by Monty Oum. It first premiered on July 18, 2013, on the Rooster Tooth website and became a viral sensation, developing a hard-core fan following across the globe. Over the course of its eight seasons, the series has made its way into mainstream pop culture and is ever-expansive in its appeal, thanks to mature themes and escapist fantasy elements. If you wish to jump aboard the hype-train and start streaming the pop-cultural phenomenon, here’s how you can watch ‘RWBY’ online.
What is RWBY About?
‘RWBY’ takes place in the fantasy world of Remnant, which is composed of four kingdoms. Years ago, Salem, a manipulative woman, tried to coax the Gods of Darkness and Light into resurrecting her fallen lover, Ozma. Enraged by her actions, the Gods cursed Salem with immortality and obliterated humanity on Earth.
Ozma is reincarnated as Ozpin on Remnant. Under his leadership, the four kingdoms establish academies for training students to counter the threat of the Creatures of Grimm that torment the people of Remnant. These academies also guard the four relics whose reunion will summon the Gods to judge humanity. The series focuses on four young women – Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long – enrolled at the Vale kingdom academy, trying to navigate this complex world with many threats.
Is RWBY On Netflix?
‘RWBY’ isn’t a part of the myriad of entertainment titles offered by Netflix to its subscribers.
