Have you been following the RWBY manga published by Viz? It’s about to get bigger with the announcement of four upcoming books…what will be the theme?
VIZ Media has announced the latest edition of their ongoing RWBY Manga series, the Official Manga Anthology — a series of four volumes, each focusing on one member of team RWBY: Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long. The first volume, Red Like Roses (out in two weeks) focuses on Ruby.
The manga (and the animated series it’s based on) takes place in the world of Remnant, where horrific monsters roam the landscape on a mission to wipe out humans. In order to keep order and prevent these monsters from conquering the planet, the kingdoms of Remnant send out Huntsmen and Huntresses after them. In training to become official Huntresses are Ruby Rose and her friends. Put ’em together and the first letter of their names spell RWBY (pronounced “Ruby,” like Ms. Rose herself).
“The original short stories in this new series really showcase Team RWBY,” says Joel Enos, senior editor at VIZ. “In this first volume, fans will get deep Ruby Rose insights, with all the drama, comedy, and personality they expect from the world of RWBY.”
In RED LIKE ROSES, Ruby may be team leader, but she’s got insecurities just like the rest of us. In fact, her worries run deep. These all-new stories show how Ruby overcomes her shortcomings to be a true hero—and what drives her to do it! From a team of exciting new manga artists comes the first volume in a series of short story collections showcasing Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang!
The same day Red Like Roses debuts in print, it will also be available digitally through the VIZ Manga app and partner storefronts. Look for it May 15th, courtesy of VIZ Media.
