    3.8 I read the first volume of this series featuring Ruby. While those stories were random, menial, and lacked depth, that was less-so in this volume. While there were still a lot of pointless bits in this anthology, there were a few stories that made me actually laugh aloud and there were a few that added some depth to Blake, but ended up getting a bit repetitive using some of the same thematic ideas of Faunus and Human.

    I feel like the majority of the stories in these anthologies are just queer bating of popular fan ships. This one was a majority just Yang/Blake queer bating, while the Weiss and Ruby anthologies were mostly Weiss/Ruby queer bating. All in all pretty disappointing. I really love Blake, and these stories weren’t very enjoyable.

    As someone who's never been much of a Blake fan since getting into RWBY, I have to say that this volume of the RWBY manga anthology really softened me a bit with the heavier aspects of the stories that are contained in it. While most of the stories in the previous volumes tended to focus on a lot of fun and character exploration, these stories also focused with a lot of the underlying racial tension between humans and faunus, as well as the inner turmoil and lingering guilt Blake has regarding h As someone who's never been much of a Blake fan since getting into RWBY, I have to say that this volume of the RWBY manga anthology really softened me a bit with the heavier aspects of the stories that are contained in it.

It's still dubious whether or not these stories are actually canon, and even so, I don't take them as such necessarily, but it was still a nice change of pace from before. Not much else to say at this point in time, but perhaps in the future I'll analyze just a little more when I go through this again.

    idk as someone who doesn't like bumblebee .. most of this just wasn't really all that appealing. it kind of highlights another issue with how the faunus get infantilized and reduced to just "being cute" instead of actual people, though, but not in a way that actually gets dealt with. not that i expected it to. idk as someone who doesn't like bumblebee .. most of this just wasn't really all that appealing. it kind of highlights another issue with how the faunus get infantilized and reduced to just "being cute" instead of actual people, though, but not in a way that actually gets dealt with. not that i expected it to.

    I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love the show on tv and got this volume of the book because I think that Blake is my favorite besides Ruby herself. I spent a lot of time watching the show and to get this with the short stories and illustrations took me right back to that world. That was something I did not know that I needed until I read this. Well worth it.

    In burning through the RWBY series, my favorite character was the mysterious cat-eared ninja Blake. So when I picked up the anthology manga, I was naturally most looking forward to "From Shadows." It did not disappoint! Though most of the stories are silly little one-offs, many tales dive deeper into what makes the introverted faunus tick. Without a doubt, my favorite story was the opening chapter, "Iridescent Dialogue."

So when I picked up the anthology manga, I was naturally most looking forward to "From Shadows." It did not disappoint! Though most of the stories are silly little one-offs, many tales dive deeper into what makes the introverted faunus tick. Without a doubt, my favorite story was the opening chapter, "Iridescent Dialogue." There's a lot there for fans of the show to sink their teeth into, from the intense moment in the series in which the story takes place, to the myriad colorful characters who appear and make their vibrant personalities felt, to the heavy subject matter of prejudice and how members of an oppressed minority can have very different views on how they should carry themselves and view each other. The central conflict between Blake and fellow faunus Neon is an excellent addition to the broader story. The bookended tale of a beach getaway with her partner Yang feels heartfelt and buzzing with warmth. Some other stories I enjoyed were "The Monster" (where Blake and team leader Ruby start a book swap), "Blake! Blake! Blake!" (in which Blake reluctantly battles Yang in a joke contest), "Take Me Back" (during battle, Blake loses the bow that keeps her cat ears hidden from a judging world), "Break Time" (where Blake faces her worst fear: pet-sitting Ruby and Yang's dog Zwei) and "Curiosity Killed the Cat" (a legitimately creepy story involving a haunted mirror). Many of the stories focus on Blake's relationship with Yang, but there's a surprising amount of silly content with her and Zwei, as well. Blake also spends a few stories with her faunus friend Sun, and there are more characters included here than in the Ruby collection, "Red Like Roses." Fans of the show will enjoy it, fans of Bumbleby will scream in joy, and there are even some parts in which people who aren't familiar with the animated series might find interest.

    As I expected, Blake's chapters ended up being by far more interesting than Weiss' was because black actually had some serious backstory before the events of the RWBY series started. But what's good about the anthology is it really does flesh out some of the more comedic moments that Blake was so sorely missing in the early going (I can watch her hide from Zwei all day). The only thing that is starting to bug me out of these is so many of these are trying to cling the root of the original story.

I would have really liked to see a lot more one offs of just random adventure that could have taken place inside of main story moments. Ruby had a lot more of these in the first volume. I haven't seen as much in vol 2 and 3. Next up is my favorite of four.

    Most of what I think of this anthology is the same as in my reviews of Vol. 1 and 2; however, I just thought I'd give a few thoughts. There was no story in this that I particularly disliked although once again, I did find some of them repetitive. You don't need to have read the other two anthologies; however, you do need to have seen the show — especially Volumes 1-3 which this has massive spoilers for.

My favorite story in this one was Curiosity Killed The Cat by Ohtsuki. It definitely had the best art style, in my opinion, and the story was exciting too. It was also one of the few stories in this book to feature a Grimm, and a new one too, with a fascinating concept. Overall, give this anthology a go if you enjoy RWBY.

    Book 3 in the RWBY anthology collection follow Blake Belladonna through some high school experiences. Blake has always struggled with fellow members of society knowing her true identity, that of a Faunus. This adorable kitty’s personality is fully explored within the realm of Beacon. Would have liked some White Fang Blake ... but that is just me. Ultimately a good addition to the anthology collection, and love me some wholesome Blake.

    This was my first manga that I have ever read and it did not disappoint! I love Blakes character and I love the little side stories we got to see with her time at beacon. I especially enjoyed the conversations that took place with some Faunus characters and the development of the Bumbleby ship as it felt like it was something that was lacking in the show so it was nice to see more of it here in the manga.

    Another good anthology! For all my mixed opinions on the show's current direction and some of the past plot choices, I definitely think they picked some great mangaka to fill these books. Though I haven't said in my previous reviews, I also love that the ends of these have little single-panel thanks from each illustrator, an afterword from Ein Lee, and a thanks from the English VA of the character the anthology is celebrating. All nice touches. Another good anthology!

    Of all the characters in the series, Blake is actually my favorite. She is reserved, serious, and above all a tormented character who is struggling to reconcile with what she is right now vs. what she was in the past. Also, I just find her cute. DONNOT get the wrong idea about the last statement, OK everyone? Thankyou.

    Blake is my favorite, and this volume did not disappoint. There is a great mix of funny and serious stories (as in the past volumes) and a little more insight into this complicated character. The cat ear cosplay and her always-difficult relationship with Zwei are hilarious interludes.

    A great anthology for Blake! I thought almost all stories did great at showing Blake's journey to accept herself and that there are others who care for her. I still don't see RW & BY as ships, but this was significantly less shippy than the other two anthologies. A great anthology for Blake!

    Once again, Rooster Teeth has done an amazing job with their latest installment. I loved how the reader got to see new sides of Blake that we don't get to see in the show. Again I recommend this to someone who has already seen RWBY volumes 1 through 3. Once again Thoroughly impressed. Once again, Rooster Teeth has done an amazing job with their latest installment.

    For some reason this has been my least favorite anthology so far... Maybe its because Blake reminds me so much of myself and I'd rather be closer to any of the other characters. It's stil a good collection of stories, but seems to focus excessively on her Faunas parts than character development. For some reason this has been my least favorite anthology so far...

    I think it was fairly obvious that this would be a top rated book. Blake is my favourite member of RWBY. I just love the art and the cute stories.
