The initial three episodes of this retelling of the long-running series RWBY introduce its lead cast, the world they live in, and a lot of amazing action to the viewer.

Both in reputation and on-screen appearance, the Grimm offers many threats and hardships for our heroes to encounter. It is also clear that there is more to the monsters than has been informed which incorporates an element of suspense to the same.
