      RWBY 08: Japanese Response

      1 year ago

      Hey all, Long time lurker first time blogger here, Now that RWBY is hitting it's stride I was slightly curious as to what reception it had received over here in Japan, so I did a bit of searching and sure enough I came across a fan translation

      So with the recent release of episode 8 let's take a look at the Japanese response to it! Below I've chosen comments that I found to be interesting or reflected a general opinion on the episode
