Popular web cartoon series RWBY is getting a new adaptation, courtesy of animation studio SHAFT (Madoka Magica, Monogatari Series). The series seems like it’s going to be a straightforward adaptation of the RWBY story through the eyes of Weiss rather than team leader Ruby Rose.
The team responsible for the series include legendary writer Gen Urobuchi (Madoka Magica, Kamen Rider Gaim) and Tow Ubukata (Mardock Scramble, Psycho-Pass). The voice cast includes Saori Hayami as Ruby Rose, Yoko Hikaasa as Weiss, Yu Shimamura as Blake, and Ami Koshimizu as Yang.
This new series, entitled RWBY: Ice Queendom, will air sometime in 2022.
