I saw this and read on the news that RWBY was going to be dubbed by Japanese. I was wondering if the Japanese version would remake the animation, like anime style, or use the original animation, just replacing the voice actors and actresses. Does anyone know an article or a thread regarding this matter?
I have compared the animation and dialogue in the English and Japanese versions of the first episode of RWBY ("Ruby Rose"). The dialogue and voices have been set to match the flaps of the character's mouths rather than the other way round.
The dub is purely audio, no animation changes were made. This is typical of most localisation dubs both in the western world and in Japan also.
