RWBY – Volume 5 Hitting Blu-Ray And Digital June 5th

Anime phenomenon RWBY is coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital June 5th, and while many of the show’s biggest fans may wonder at the release (because they can – and do – watch it online all day long), the release comes with some great bonuses and the ability to watch anywhere… well, more anywhere… or whatever.

Of course, that’s not counting the Special Edition Combo Pack with 32-page RWBY Official Manga Anthology Sampler.

Over the course of the series, RWBY almost immediately rocketed to its current status as one of the most celebrated anime series around with some of the most loyal, engaged fans out there. The latest series mixes things up a bit, with Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang off on their own adventures, but the show is still alive with everything that pulled people in from the beginning.

You can obviously catch the show – all the better to become hooked and need to own it – at RoosterTeeth.

 

 

In RWBY: Volume 5 Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it’s the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it’s clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who’s going to come out on top?

The home entertainment release of RWBY: Volume 5 includes every action-packed episode from the fifth volume of the critically acclaimed phenomenon, plus special bonus features including:

5 Years RWBY

“5 Years of RWBY” is a behind-the-scenes retrospective that explores how the production of RWBY has changed over the years. This exclusive content includes never before seen interviews.

Weiss Character Short
All her life, Weiss Schnee has lived a privileged and pampered life… but it did not come without its own hardships.

Blake Character Short
The White Fang was once a peaceful organization fighting for true equality for the Faunus. Over the years, however, many members began to favor violent and extreme tactics in order to demand respect from the humans of Remnant. Though Blake Belladonna eventually decided to leave the White Fang and its growing acts of terror, not all of her friends made the same decision.

Yang Character Short
You know that Ruby is unstoppable with her scythe, but Yang knows the true power of hand-to-hand combat. In the midst of a weapon-free training session, can Yang convince her sister of the importance of fighting without a weapon?

CRWBY: Behind The Episode
Have you ever wondered how RWBY is made? Each week, CRWBY: Behind the Episode gives you a peek at the magic, highlights the animation process, and introduces you to the animators, engineers, producers, and artists who work tirelessly to bring the World of Remnant to life.
