Or, as the fans call it, Monty Oum‘s legacy.
But let’s rewind a bit first, shall we?
Clearly not shying away from a bit of fanservice / servicing fans, Monty continued fighting the good fight in Dead Fantasy, with assorted characters – and mannerisms – from the Dead or Alive and Final Fantasy series.
The choreography is off the effin’ charts here.
The fanservice is equally spinning out of control.
No wonder he got the spotlight he deserved, and a place amongst Rooster Teeth‘s animators soon after. Bringing his choreographic expertise to their long-running series Red vs Blue – think Halo with the funnies – it wasn’t long before he was offered a chance to fulfill his dream: the creation of RWBY, his life’s work.
It goes from zen moments to insane high-octane swordplay in the blink of an eye.
You’ve got your quirky, fun-loving heroines, mixed in with badass evildoers.
It’s got a shitload of references to pop culture, and manages to squeeze in some high school shenanigans, horseplay and buffoonery.
Having a little bit of everything, RWBY is the culmination of everything cool, with a dash of explosions and a sprinkle of smiles.
We can’t forget about the chibis.
Thanks for this, Monty. Thanks a lot.
