You already know im an RWBY fan, from the show it self, to the games, to the very good manga which I reviewed here. Now VIZ is giving RWBY fans even more options with the RWBY manga anthology. The RED LIKE ROSES edition is the first of four character-focused volumes in the RWBY OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGY series. More details on future anthologies featuring Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long will be forthcoming.
In RED LIKE ROSES, Ruby may be team leader, but she’s got insecurities just like the rest of us. In fact, her worries run deep. These all-new stories show how Ruby overcomes her shortcomings to be a true hero—and what drives her to do it! From a team of exciting new manga artists comes the first volume in a series of short story collections showcasing Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang!

Joel Enos, Senior Editor said of the new book:
“The original short stories in this new series really showcase Team RWBY. In this first volume, fans will get deep Ruby Rose insights, with all the drama, comedy, and personality they expect from the world of RWBY.”
VIZ Media recently launched a RWBY manga digitally and in print. That volume features artwork by the famed manga creator, Shirow Miwa, and is inspired by the popular online anime-style series originally created by Monty Oum and produced by Austin, TX-based Rooster Teeth Productions. RWBY was the first western-produced anime series to be distributed in Japan.
