Way back on July 10, 2006, a Youtube channel was brought into existence. A Youtube channel that went from screwing off in Halo 2 Movie Maker, to attaining a fan base that numbers in the millions, with over 8,000,000 subscribers. This channel, is Rooster Teeth.
In the beginning, there was a shit-tier series by the name of "Red vs Blue." The members of Rooster Teeth had no idea what the hell they were doing back then. Armies were playing capture the flag, Caboose was of average intelligence, and Donut was just stupid, not gay. These were the times of screwing around with friends and putting it on Youtube, which was still relatively new, and was growing rapidly in popularity. Then, all of a sudden, Rooster Teeth realized, "Yo, man! We have subscribers who think we have a conceivable plot!" And since then, "Red vs Blue" started becoming more intricate, more complicated, more of a story. They added emotion; they added personality to the characters; they put together a very well-done plot (considering they were just screwing around at the beginning) with only one or two plot holes; they eventually got good microphones. "Red vs Blue" evolved into an amazing web series that has earned itself 13 seasons, twelve of them even being available on Netflix. "Red vs Blue," to this day, remains the main staple of Rooster Teeth to the average person who has heard of the channel.
That does not mean, however, that "Red vs Blue" is the only thing they are known for, nor is it the only good thing to come from Rooster Teeth. On July 25, 2013, Rooster Teeth uploaded on Youtube the first episode of the hit web series that came straight from internet legend Monty Oum's (God bless) mind: RWBY. For an internet studio with a small budget, this series turned out damn well. RWBY follows the young girl Ruby Rose and her friends as they train to fight creatures called Grimm, only not really. Soul Eater, anyone?
The improvements on the graphics of the series can be seen throughout the two full seasons that are also on Netflix, as well as the episodes in the currently running third season. Not as complicated as RvB, RWBY still delivers a good watch and is worth your while. Others think so. You know who? Oh, how about VIC MIGNOGNA!
"Levi, who is Vic Mignogna?" Vic Mignogna is an American voice actor for Anime and some video games who won the American Anime Award for best actor in 2007. He grew up in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. He was a police officer in Florida. He became a voice actor, famous in the anime community for many roles, including but not limited to: Edward Elric (FMA franchise), Tamaki Suoh (Host Club), Lelouch aka Zero (Code Geass), and Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach).
Rooster Teeth came from screwing around on an XBox, to having millions of followers and making connections and collaborations from some pretty well-known folk. Keep it up, Rooster Teeth. Keep it up.
