RoosterTeeth has gone anime (new series called RWBY)

So with the last episode of Red Vs Blue that was uploaded yesterday/ last night (which I think will be the end of that series forever well except for PSA related stuff), this was preview at the end of the credit-

(Warning, it contain alot of slicing and decapitation)

This is a surpising turn of event. Before you asked, Monty Oum is not a company but the guy who made all of those non halo engine action scene used in the last few seasons. I mean from the look of it, you assume it to be a game trailer (at the start it remind me of the game Journey) and it's even more suprising that it come from Roosterteeth.
Either way I'm not exactly against it since Burnie (creator of Roosterteeh) did intend to have his company to be ever evolving so I have high hope for this new series.

So what do you think of the preview?

EDIT- If you loved the music used in the trailer, click the youtube page below to get the Itune link to download it-

I'm very curious to see how this turns out.

The action scenes in the last couple of seasons have been fantastic.

Personally, while I greatly respect what Monty Oum does, I don't think I've ever actually enjoyed anything he's done. It's too flashy to be exciting for me. When characters don't have to obey the laws of gravity, flips have no meaning. When werewolves can be killed with such ease, there is no difference between 2 or 200. When the character hardly looks like they're even trying in combat, I have no need to feel anxious or impressed. Hell, I can't even tell what's going on at the end of it. I will check it out so that it has the chance to impress me with some sort of compelling writing, but I'm not going to be upset or surprised if it's just another excuse for characters to go around and act "badass" in the most surface-oriented way possible.

With that said. I love the idea of Rooster Teeth (or any individual/small enterprise) making anything of substantial production value that isn't based on existing properties and I certainly hope it does well on principle.

Roosterteeth said they were going to do a season 11 of Red vs Blue. Someone even won a voice over part on season 11 for donating a certain amount of money to on of the RT employee's film.

That's a lot of rose petals in that animation.

I'm sure Ray will be a fan.

Holy Shit.
I've been looking for this. IT LOOKS AMAZING!

I'm not really sure how much of this is a roosterteeth project and how much is just Monty Oum. He's done stuff like this before, so I'm not sure how involved other members of roosterteeth are going to be. Regardless it looks awesome, looking forward to it.

I think this is more of a Monty Oum project backed by Rooster Teeth than a Rooster Teeth project. Though I barely paid attention to the trailer last night. I was too busy trying to comprehend the randomness that was the plot twist at the end of the season 10 finale.

Aha! A fellow Minecraft Let's Play fan?
Personally I have never watched RvB myself either. By the time I'd stumbled across it, it was 9 seasons in and I did not have the time to invest in it. But this looks pretty good so I'll keep an eye out for it.

As you can tell by my avatar, I love anime.

And I love Red Vs Blue, especially the action scenes. So I think I am going to LOVE this new series with a passion. :D

Monty is awesome...
Ray is indeed going to love this.

Monty Oum, automatic +10 to awesome.

Interesting how the lyrics give some additional hints about the show... RWBY: Red, White, Black, Yellow; who they are, what they're generally about, etc.

Even more interesting, this will be Monty's first "solo" project featuring (voice) acting as well as action.

I think this is less a Rooster Teeth production, and more a Monty Oum project. Also, I heard somewhere (you want a source? to bad, I aint got one) that they are planning a Season 11. As I dont have a actual source for this, it may be more hope than fact, but while it seems to have wrapped everything up nice and neat, to imagen the end of RVB...

GOT 'EM!

But seriously, watch some RvB. After a while I started to lose track of what was happening (an ever-expanding cast and multiple jumps through time will do that), but the first 5 seasons (100 episode of maybe 5-10 minutes each, which you can watch over the course of a couple weeks) are comedy gold.

OT: I liked the battle scenes in RvB, but I'm not a fan of the anime style, and watching a little girl chop up werewolves with a scythe-gun is a little too weird for me. I'll watch the first episode to see if it has some good humour in it, but if not I'll pass.

Ehhh... I really want to like Monty but I really can't get myself to enjoy it. I mean I stopped watching Red Vs. Blue almost solely because I can't bring myself to like or even care about the freelancer CG stuff. If it was all halo it would be more entertaining. I still need to watch all of season 10, and I used to be in love with RvB.

This is freaking awesome. I can't wait :3

Eh. It doesn't really offer much in the way of substance, does it?

...Okay Roosterteeth, you have my interest now. As long as you're not continuing to butcher RvB into a drama which no-one ever wanted, I can still care about you.

Well it looks interesting, I'll keep an eye on it, kudos on them for deciding to start a new series made with original characters and animation, I love the fact that it just looks like a trailer for a game, but anyway good on them.

For a moment there I thought you were someone else...

Never really like Red vs. Blue after Season 8. It just lost most of the humor that made me love it, and replaced it with CGI action scenes that just lost my interest.

OP: That trailer looked fucking awesome. The show has certainly sparked my interest. I'll probably watch it when it comes out.

Looks like Mr. Oum has been taking lessons in engaging art style from Suda 51. Good, this is very good.

It looks really...really awesome, but I can't help but wonder how they are ever going to create tension or challenge this character at all. Without a doubt my favourite thing from that video is the gun-scythe, and using the recoil of firing to slice with the scythe was magnificent.

I always enjoy Monty Onum animation and choreography, even if it is over the top. As for the rest of it I like the overall art style though I don't care for the character design. I would bet we will get trailers with the rest of the silhouettes before too long so we will have to see.

If nothing else I like how Roosterteeth is expanding and trying new things. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Hey RoosterTeeth! Black★Rock Shooter called, they want their concept back!

Nah, I kid, Black★Rock Shooter royally fumbled it's great concept, this actually looks better.

cant wait to see the other 3 trailers....given what the last few seconds there..so lets see

R = red riding hood (with a gun-scythe)
W = snow White?
B = sleeping Beauty or maybe Beauty (of the beast? which i think is more likely now)?
Y = yeah I'm drawing a blank...anyone else know of a fairytale-esque female that has Y there?

I'm wondering how many people there have SEEN Black Rock Shooter... Anyway, I don't normally like Monty's style of combat. Its not really fun for me to watch one overpowered person blow through flunkies. If I was going to like that, though he would be my first pick. His stuff is unquestionably good when its 2 overpowered people fighting though. So looking forward to this.

They announced Season 11 on their podcast.

Yeah, RWBY looks pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see what happens with it.

On a side note, has anyone checked out The Gauntlet? It's something completely different for them, but I think Burnie works great as a game show judge.

I was thinking about that too, and having trouble with the B and the Y. I assumed they were colors, but I couldn't think of any fairy tale characters with Black and Yellow in them. That said, your idea makes sense.

I'm looking forward to it personally. Looks like it could be awesome.

Is it just me or does this character remind you guys of Margaret from No More Heroes 2 the weapons basically the same except she uses two of them.

Oh wow. I remember back when Monty Oum started, with that old Haloid video of Samus vs Master Chief, and then those Final Fantasy vs DOA videos he did.

Gotta admit, it looks like he's developed by leaps and bounds since then. Especially little things, like the facial expressions and animations in this one. Gonna have to keep an eye out now. The music and choreography oozes style and I will admit to having a fondness for ridiculous, transforming, hybrid weapons. :)

I have a gripe with the facial expressions. They look unconvincing, sort of a middle-path between indifferent and showing emotions which I don't really like in this instance. Otherwise, it looks badass.

I think it's just one of many projects they will be doing

Will watch.

Like, definitely will watch. As long as the whole series is going to be like that, then count me in.

Now just give me a moment to pick up my jaw off of the floor.

Something is wrong when I feel sorry for the monsters and no remorse for the plight of the protagonist... which just about every monster movie in existence fulfills.

That trailer reminds me of Mabinogi, only a very kickass and cleaner-looking version.

That art style. That's what really sold me on this. Man, those colours! And the character design's pretty good, too, judging by the trailer. It's a Monty Oum production, as well, so obviously the animation'll be great.

That leaves the writing and acting. If they're any good, I'll probably have a new favourite web series. If not, I'll be disappointed. This is what'll make or break the series. It's got so many good points already, but if the story's an incomprehensible mess, then it's all for naught. Even if the dialogue's good, it'll need a decent story to hold it together. However, without decent acting, the dialogue won't sell. If they get this wrong, it'll ruin the production.

I'm still REALLY looking forward to this, though. Even with the possibility of horrid writing and acting, I really don't think they'll screw it up. Rooster Teeth has a good reputation for high-quality productions, and even if it's more a Monty Oum production than a Rooster Teeth one, I don't think they'd host something they think might be bad.
