Acclaimed anime series “RWBY – Volume 7” coming 10/13 to Blu-ray & Digital

RWBY Volume 7

Rooster Teeth’s epic anime-inspired series following the journeys of four unified huntresses-in-training arrives for its spectacular seventh season when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment presents RWBY Volume 7 on Digital ($14.99 SRP USA & Canada) and Blu-ray ($19.98 SRP USA, $24.98 SRP Canada) starting October 13, 2020.

Beloved by fans and acclaimed by critics, RWBY imagines a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, and humanity’s only hope dependent upon powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant’s protectors.

In RWBY Volume 7, Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang have fought hard alongside their friends to bring the Relic of Knowledge to Atlas, the northernmost Kingdom in Remnant. However, the futuristic urban-sprawl may hide just as much danger as the Grimm-infested tundra that surrounds it.  Enemies and allies will collide as our heroes fight to stop Salem’s forces, but banding together is dangerous when you don’t know who you can trust.

The cast is led by the key quartet of Lindsay Jones (X-Ray and Vav) as Ruby Rose, Kara Eberle (Rooster Teeth Shorts) as Weiss Schnee, Arryn Zech (Red vs. Blue) as Blake Belladonna and Barbara Dunkelman (Fairy Tail, Blood Fest) as Yang Xiao Long. Other key voice cast members include Miles Luna (Camp Camp) as Jaune Arc, Jen Brown (Red vs. Blue)  as Pyrrha Nikos, Neath Oum (RWBY: Grimm Eclipse) as Lie Ren, Samantha Ireland (RWBY Chibi) as Nora Valkyrie and Shannon McCormick (Get Backers, Day 5) and Aaron Dismuke (Fullmetal Alchemist) as Ozma/Ozpin.

Created by the late Monty Oum (Red vs. Blue), RWBY is one of Rooster Teeth’s most beloved, viewed and shared series. As the first western-produced anime series to be distributed in Japan, RWBY episodes have averaged more than 7 million views, and the franchise has accumulated over 271 million views since its inception. To date, the series has sold nearly 670k units sold on DVD and Blu-ray, and registered consumer products sales in excess of $20 million. RWBY has a fervent fanbase in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan

Concurrent to the series now being distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, RWBY is receiving a new manga from Shonen Jump, as well as a new young adult novel from Scholastic releasing on July 21, 2020. RWBY DC Comics Volume 1 will arrive during the 2020 holiday season, and Rooster Teeth is producing three new RWBY-based series this year: a new short-form animated series, a live-action Dungeons & Dragons style show, and a live-action behind-the-scenes talk show.

RWBY Volume 7 represents the next step in the expanding partnership between Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Rooster Teeth, bringing this epic anime series – with its elaborate storytelling, kickass action and eye-catching animation – to fans across the globe,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Batman’s Grave #1 (DC Comics) – Warren Ellis takes on Batman with Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowland on art.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues #1 (IDW Publishing) – The original Karate Kid is told from Johnny’s perspective. Sounds entertaining to us as we’re fans of the film series.

Dead Legends Premier Edition #1 (A Wave Blue World) – The publisher is putting out premier editions of their comics which then switch to digital releases or a trade after. We’re intrigued if this new release method works and if this first issue would get us interested in continuing with that sort of release.

Ginseng Roots #1 (Uncivilized Books) – Craig Thompson recounts his life of harvesting ginseng from ages 10 to 20.

Hellmouth #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Angel and Buffy crossover in an event that already is selling out!

Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #1 (DC Comics) – The latest DC Black Label comics is another Joker/Harley Quinn story and we’re intrigued how, and if, this one will be original to stand out.

RWBY #1 (DC Comics) – The popular anime gets a series from DC. How this will differ from the manga already released will be interesting.

Powers of X #6 (Marvel) – Jonathan Hickman’s new direction for the X-Universe wraps up.

Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated #1 (AfterShock) – The largest retailer in the world requires the best loss prevention staff and they defend things at any and all costs.

Smedley (Dead Reckoning) – The graphic novel is a solid introduction to the military hero and his rather interesting life of service and advocacy.

Spawn #301 (Image Comics) – The comic breaks a record for ongoing superhero series with this issue and that history-making fact is why it’s on our list.
