Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo revealed on Thursday that it has licensed Shirow Miwa's RWBY manga.

The original RWBY web animated series by the late creator Monty Oum follows four girls with unique weapons and powers who are training to hunt supernatural "Creatures of Grimm." The manga is a prequel about these four girls who would eventually make up Team RWBY upon enrolling in Beacon Academy. The manga's story, supervised by Rooster Teeth, reveals "the mystery hidden in four trailers."

Shirow launched the manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in November 2015, and ended it in February 2017. Shueisha published one volume for the manga.

Shirow launched the Dogs: Bullets & Carnage sequel of his Dogs: Prelude manga in Ultra Jump in 2005, and Shueisha released the 10th compiled book volume in 2014. The manga inspired an original video anime adaptation (OVA) in 2009. The main cast from the 2007 and 2008 drama CD adaptations reprised their roles in the OVA. The original Dogs manga ran in Ultra Jump from 2000 to 2001, and Shueisha released one compiled book.
