Well...as 당신 may 또는 may not know, one of the staff working with Rooster Teeth and with one of its project RWBY has unfortunately passed away and yeah...actually this doesn't have anything to do with what,i just wanted to ask this before but didn't and since Monty Oum passed away recently (Feb.1,2015) i just thought "hey,i have nothing to lose so ask away!" and so...yeah again, anyways, in some 당신 Tube and other website 코멘트 i heard from people call this an "anime" and that made me a bit confused...I myself just consider this a 당신 Tube project,like for example...Draw with Me, no matter how awesome this is...and yeah,again again, that's just my opinion and i want to know yours.
P.s. here's the trailer for those who don't know RWBY
Since it's done in the 아니메 artstyle, I consider it an anime; I suppose the correct term for it would be an animated web series. 더 많이 and 더 많이 Japanese 아니메 are turning to 3D style 애니메이션 and RWBY is actually going over well in Japan. It's the first American "anime" to get a Japanese dub/be marketed in Japan. I hear the fanbase in 일본 is small, but mighty. They really like it and it's gaining popularity.
So long story short, yes I consider RWBY to be an anime. As far as I'm concerned, if it's done in the 아니메 art style I'll probably consider it an anime.
