The RWBY Beacon Trilogy Steelbook Heads To The UK This November

Thursday 4th August 2016

First ever ‘RWBY’ SteelBook® collects Volumes 1 - 3 of globally acclaimed, award-winning animated series

Rooster Teeth and Animatsu Entertainment are pleased to announce the first three volumes, collectively known as the “Beacon” story arc from the hit animated series RWBY, arrive in a limited edition, collectable Blu-ray Steelbook® in the UK on November 21st.

Following their first collaboration for the Red vs. Blue: The Chorus Trilogy SteelBook®, the Rooster Teeth Animation creative team once again worked closely with Scanavo’s design team to produce the stunning new artwork featured on the cover, interior and discs of this first-ever RWBY SteelBook® release.

“We are thrilled to be partnering once again with Rooster Teeth to bring this stunning Steelbook design of the widely popular RWBY Beacon Series to the UK. The Steelbook promises to be an exciting addition for any RWBY collection and we look forward to sharing it with the fans!” said Andrew Hewson, Marketing Manager at Animatsu Entertainment.

A young hero, an exalted heiress, a troubled rogue, and a party girl... These are the four members of RWBY, a team brought together and trained for the sole purpose of combating the rampant evils that plague the fantastic world of Remnant.

RWBY focuses on 15-year old Ruby Rose, a young girl who has just been accepted to Beacon Academy.  This ancient school was founded to train the monster-slayers known as Huntsmen and Huntresses.  However, Ruby will not be alone.  Upon arriving at Beacon, she is promptly paired with Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long.  If these four girls want to graduate, they’ll have to learn to work together both on the battlefield and in the classroom.

Hugh David on the full monty
Asian-American animator Monty Oum passed away tragically on the 1st February this year at the age of 33. RWBY (pronounced Ruby, the lead character’s name, but also an acronym of the four lead characters) is his legacy, a fully CG-animated web series that is as close to anime as a series made outside of Japan can be, so much so that Warner Bros Japan have bought it to dub and release locally.


The magnificent 47 Ronin

Stephen Turnbull asks what (if anything) went wrong with the 47 Ronin?
When T. H. White’s great Arthurian fantasy The Once and Future King was first published the New York Times described it as “a glorious dream of the Middle Ages as they never were but as they should have been.” A very similar comment would not be inappropriate to describe the strange world of old Japan conjured up in the movie 47 Ronin.


Jack Neighbour prepares you for life in Japan
Hopefully you found the first three offerings in last weeks part one informative and you’d had ample time to calm your nerves and research a new country to emigrate to. So without further hesitation, let's complete the list.

Fairy Tail Music: Jamil

Tom Smith on Fairy Tail’s 8th Opening Theme
If you’re reading this blog, there’s a fair chance that the idea of visiting Japan has crossed your mind a few times. American-born Jamil Abbas Kazmi had a similar thought, though he wanted to take it one step further by establishing a career out there.

Wolf Children and Families

In search of Mamoru Hosoda’s family ties
The Wolf Children is a family film about a family. This may help explain while Mamoru Hosoda’s movie was a hit in Japan, something that’s very unusual for a standalone cartoon film not linked to an entrenched brand. A well-rounded portrait of a family offers many ways in for different generations. The Wolf Children is the story of an unassuming ‘ordinary’ mum who must find reserves of superhuman strength; of a rambunctious girl and a troubled boy, each with different relationships to their animal sides; of a magic, mythic love between a human woman and a gentle werewolf; and of everyday, practical living away from city lights and mod-cons.
We are happy to announce that our upcoming release of the smash-hit anime series, Akame ga Kill! Part 1 will be receiving a deluxe collector's edition!
Love Kyoto Animation as much as we do? Then here’s a title you’ll want for your collection.
