    I can't imagine how cool and moving it would be to see something that I created in any store, let alone in a foreign country with a completely different culture. I envy these guys and their creativity.

      Just the background during the video makes it look like anime is 80% of the culture in Japan.  Is it really such a huge part of the culture (which I would compare to Marvel and DC in America) or were they simply in a tourist-y spot?

      Anime stuff is certainly around, but it's far from being everywhere. I think they were mostly in/around Akihabara for a lot of that, which is pretty tourist heavy from what I hear. (I've never been to Tokyo myself, I'm fine with sticking to Kyoto.) There is definitely a lot of anime in pop culture here, but it's not as if that's all there is.

    "Not an anime"

    Correct but should be contested as the japanese are now localizing it.

    Monty would be proud to see where his creation has gone and how far its come

    • rohie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      5 months ago

      @YamiSpyro It's neither correct nor wrong as there's no concrete definition for what counts as "anime". For example, all animation is anime for the Japanese, and it's just what the term for animation is in Japan. Although that aside, your definition is even more arbitrary. So you think that if an animation is localized in Japanese, it's then anime? Stuff like South Park or Family Guy? That's hilariously illogical.


      The only correct answer to the question of whether RWBY is anime or not is "who the fuck cares, just enjoy it".

      They put volume 2 on the RTstore maybe 2 or 3 weeks after I got it imported, so I imagine you can expect it soon!

    never watched it but i'm glad it's doing well, (I don't like CG anime) plus it's weird hearing the voices of people I've heard daily in something like an anime that's kinda why I stopped watching fairy tail.

      In a couple years maybe you should check it (CG anime) out, you might like it at that time because the visual quality is getting better as time goes on. A lot of research is going into CG anime styles, and I've noticed CG appearing in a lot of 2D animation scenes.

  • Alexshow FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Time to change a thing..

    5 months ago

    My favorite thing in the entirety of the RTLife is simply the fact that the RWBY series has sparked so much; as we can honestly tell with this, it's amazing to see RWBY get out there and become a huge cultural IP in a sense. 


    It's great to see Kerry and Miles fuck about in Japan; as besides Monty, they are the driving pillars to RWBY. It's great to see them in awe of one place that they were inspired too with multiple great shows and content coming out from the rising sun; as I hope the trip was amazing for them.

      The thing that surpises me about RWBYs sucsess is how it became huge immediately in the first volume.

      And that the Japanese dub was announced before Vol. 2

    "But its not anime?" 


    I wouldn't worry about it...it had a very nice section in that store and a good selection of merchandise. I would just see it as a VERY minor inconvenience LOL.


    Loved the bit at the beginning.

      The "But its not anime" was directed an those, mostly westerns that don't see RWBY as an Anime. Japan has whole heartedly embraced it as such. It was meant as a sarcastic rip.

      Because a lot of their trip was directly to do with the business side, as well as meeting some people in the industry over there and talking shop. They talked about it on Fan Service that they wanted to include more, but there were copyright and professional non-disclosure issues that they weren't able to resolve before this went up.

      It's a pretty prevalent opinion that anime "die hards" don't believe RWBY to be an anime. It's dumb.

      The older, more common definition of anime (at least in the western world) is animation from japan, more lately it's come to apply to the style of animation as well, so Avatar and RWBY definately fall under that category. And of course in japan it's literally just the word they use for "cartoon" and applies to all animations regardless of style or origin.
