Red Academia is an academia aesthetic that revolves around the pursuit of knowledge through reading, writing and research. It is ideologically similar to its other Academia counterparts, but follows a distinctly red and gold color scheme, giving it a more lavish and luxurious effect in comparison to its counterparts because of this. It's visually reminiscent of the aesthetic of Gryffindor from Harry Potter.
