Exactly how big has RWBY gotten? It looked shitty when it premiered and the only person I know that got big into it was an awful person, so I never touched it.
But looking at my local theater, the season 5 premiere is getting a theatrical release.
>>
>>95968163
It's gonna have a crossover fighting game with Blazblue. I say moderately big.

Also: Haha, fuck Guilty Gear.

>>95968188
Damn, it exploded as a franchise. I wonder if it's the most profitable thing Roosterteeth makes.

It's bigger than you might think, but not as big as its fans or RT make it out to be. It's popular as fuck in Japan, though; it along with Kemono Friends are living proof that you don't need good animation or a decent story to be ball bustingly popular in Japan, you just have to have nice character designs.

Though I'm almost positive that it makes RT more than enough money. Money that they could use to hire people who are GOOD at 3D modeling and animation and still be rich as fuck.

>Though I'm almost positive that it makes RT more than enough money. Money that they could use to hire people who are GOOD at 3D modeling and animation and still be rich as fuck.

To be fair, the models and animation are pretty okay right now. For RWBY to be a good show, they really need a good writer. The dialogue/humor/story is so fucking bad, I can't believe that this are the same people who make camp camp or RvB which has decent writing. Also a decent fight choreographer would also be good. Also on that note, hire someone to replace Ruby's VA, that shit is cringy as fuck, like someone trying to ape the high as fuck pitch of anime loli voices.

I think the problem is an inconsistent tone. RWBY's entered the "mature" stage, sure, but the writing still feels like something from a Pokemon dub. In their other shows, they constantly make adult jokes and humor, which seems to be where they're best at, but with RWBY, it seems like they don't know whether they can tell adult jokes or not, so they're limited to shit like "dude, nice bunny rabbit sweater, LOL", or straight-up slapstick like the SSSN fight.
>>
seeing you guys hate on this is the craziest thing i have ever seen you clam you hate everything about it but you follow everything and say everybody who likes it has shit taste shit is crazy
>>
>>95968791
They want to keep the younger viewers when they would be more in their element if they were allowed to go more mature, so they constantly keep this awkward balance between the two while not going too dark or too mature.

Like Tyrian calling Ruby a bitch was a big deal.

So once they've finished "Monty's vision" (at least, as close as they could come to it), is RWBY just gonna end? Are they gonna milk the same characters for infinite seasons forever? Are they gonna pull a Boruto, and have Ruby's kid be the new MC with his own team? What's RT's game plan?
>>

There are plenty of kids show with good writing or dialogue, you don't need to swear to make things entertaining.

I'd like to say they'd end it, but Red vs. Blue is still going on, so I dunno.
>>
>>95968857
That is true, but RT clearly works better when they dont have to worry about not scaring the kiddies, obviously there has to be a limit and it's not a 100% fix to RWBY, but it would probably make it some degree easier on things

I'm only halfway through volume 1 at the moment but this seems like the kind of show my nine year old sister would like, but considering how vulgar Red vs. Blue, the only other Rooster Teeth thing I've seen before is I'm a bit worried. Does the content get more racy later on? Google is giving me age ranges anywhere from 10 to 16 being the minimum age you should watch RWBY.

Violence isn't much of an issue, it's nudity/overly crude sexual humor or lots of profanity that are main red flags. She's allowed to watch The Simpsons if that helps to draw any comparisons.

(Also the reason I'm using a throwaway account on this is because my main is shadowbanned for reasons unknown.)

The Simpsons had a ton of swearing, sex and nudity jokes, if she can watch that, she should be able to watch almost anything that isn't straight porn or gore flicks.
>>
>>95968909
And that was probably the funniest line in Volume 1. Besides that, and Ren describing Nora's dream, I can't remember a single joke from Vol 1 that wasn't either slapstick, or an RT reference.
>>
>>95968921
misadventures works, too

I hear Season 5 is going to be focusing on Blake and her investigation of the White Fang.

On one hand, I'm pretty interested in seeing the internal politics of what is implied to be a severely fractured organization, but on the other, it'd mean Shitty Kitty is going to have a majority of the focus this season. I'm not even sure I'd want to watch the .m3u8 leaks once it starts airing if that's the case; Every scene with her during Volume 4 was a chore to sit through, and the fact that she's the catgirl equivalent of the privileged white kid protesting without a full understanding of the problem, and is basically the fucking PRINCESS of the Faunus capital of the world.

Also she's a cowardly little shit who once again thought running away from her problems would fix them and got mad enough to slap Sun when he pointed out that NO it doesn't fix them, or makes them go away if you wait long enough, it MAKES IT SO MUCH FUCKING WORSE, and pisses people off.
>>
>>95969214
Not to mention that Sun turns into a literal buttmonkey around her. RT not knowing about to write humor without slapstick or one character making a complete fool of himself. And with Blake being so emo, you pretty much need some humor to lighten the mood.
>>
All I want in V5 is more Yang. She seems to be the most popular of the 4 girls, but has the least screentime.
>>
>>95969214
If RT's learned anything, they could use this volume to actually SHOW the Faunus oppression that's supposedly happening, rather than just tell us about it through Blake. Assuming that they even know it was a problem in the first place.
>>
>>95969289
Speaking of Buttmonkeys, it fucking baffles me that there are people who hate Jaune for EXISTING. Like complaining about him getting more screentime this volume than the main character, when it's been established that he is literally the deuteragonist among the various characters; in other words, if we aren't focusing on Ruby and her team, we're focusing on Jaune and his team. Simple as that.

Even then, while Jaune was certainly in focus in this volume, Ruby STILL had more screentime than he did.

These are the same fuckers who hold a grudge against him for "creeping" on Weiss back in Volume 1 and 2.

Like yeah, it's a bit creepy, but it's more sad than creepy, and furthermore, the guy is operating off of advice from a clearly out-of-touch parental figure, and Jaune himself has admitted that he's a complete failure at basic social interaction.

Yeah, he might not have apologized for it, but for fuck's sake, he's a loser, not a goddamn sexual predator.

Nevermind the implications that Weiss assumed that Jaune, the same guy who she had to explain who the hell Pyrrha Nikos was, and didn't recognize until she pointed out she was on the boxart for Pumpkin Pete cereal, wanted her for the same reasons the vultures back at Atlas did, when he probably didn't know, or couldn't care less about who she was, or wanted a guy who liked her for her rather than her money or prestige, and continues to ignore such a guy, due to her aforementioned preconceptions, and goes after fucking NEPTUNE of all people, who later proves himself to be an utter shitheel after the dance despite Jaune telling him not to break Weiss' heart.

Seriously, get over yourself and your irrational Jaune hate, Dashingicecream. Your ship ain't sailing and no amount of nice art will make Blake any less of a shit character.
>>
>>95969467
To be fair he really should have gotten the clue with Weiss after the first few 'No's, definitely not a sexual predator but yeah no normal person keeps going after being told no that much. Honestly it's more surprising that nobody stopped him by then.
Really though this is very old drama that has been discussed to death
>>
>>95969613
Yeah, that particular gag dragged on longer than it needed to; I would say it was more the fault of the writers than it entirely being Jaune's failings as a character or person, but he is very definitely a flawed individual, but NOT a bad person. At the very least he did stop pursuing her entirely, and even got her that dance with Neptune she wanted, and set Neptune's dumb ass straight... of course, Neptune fucked it all up in Volume 3 like the dumbass he is. Nigger just couldn't keep it in his pants and Weiss suffered the most from his playboy bullshit.

And then it all came TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWN for Vomit Boy during Volume 3's finale, and he's STILL recovering. I wouldn't be surprised if he's got serious intimacy issues after Pyrrha kissed him, then shoved him in a rocket locker and went off to her death.

They said they have the overall story planned out, and they know how RWBY will end. The story will likely last for years, so we can expect the girls to become adults eventually.

When it ends they can begin a new story involving a new team that takes place in the future. Or, maybe they will do prequel with STRQ.

I just hope RWBY doesn't end after a time skip where all characters are now married and have children, like in Bleach and Naruto, and the kids are pretty much clones of their parents.
>>
>>95970132
Personally, I think they'll end when it comes to it and just move onto a new project. We can already see the seeds of that with Gen:Lock and I'm sure in due time they'll get a hankering for another new genre

They immediately ditched "Monty's Vision" the very fucking second he died, which was a shame causethat happened to coincide with when they escaped that awkward season1+2 period with the 4 minute episodes and completely amateur production. I.E. just when it finally started to get decent.

That's one reason that that Shane guy had such a psyzoid embolism. And while most people definitely agree that Shane overexaggerated the "extent of the damage", it's also clear that they jumped ship from Monty's "carefully preplanned details down to the minutiae for enough for 20 seasons" or whatever the urban legends say pretty might right away. Ever since they just keep adding plot points and characters and mcguffins left and right.

ALL that aside, RWBY's fucking problem is that, at its heart its a battle shounen fantasy adventure ala FullMetal Alchemist, Fairy Tale, One Piece, HunterxHunter, Wakfu, Avatar, ______Insert (Ameri)animu to hate on here. It needs 26 to 50 something full length episodes a season to sustain the scope, breadth, and scale of its story, incorporating battle, 5 continents, 3 storylines, an entire history, etc. But instead it gets essentially 5 seconds of jack shit. So the pacing and plotting are eternally always fucked.
>>
>>95969214

Season 5 is going to be as split as season 4 was. In fact, since 3 of the 4 RWBY members are already in Mistral, and the implication is that Adam is already in Mistral carrying out his plots, I would lay odds that Blake joins them there within a few episodes, if even that long.

>the fact that she's the catgirl equivalent of the privileged white kid protesting without a full understanding of the problem

I don't love Blake either, and the cowardice thing is way worse, but I have no clue where this stupid privileged white girl idea comes from. That was only true when she was, like 12 and ran off to join the fang in the first place after her Dad had advocated. Since then she served with the Fang out in the world for half a decade or more, saw all the prejudice and suffering firsthand, watched her own organization fall into violent, terrorist, fundamentalism along with Adam, and whatnot. She has many problems, but being ignorant hasn't been one for a long time.

>the internal politics of what is implied to be a severely fractured organization

The White Fang isn't really all the complicated. It used to be "Martin Luthor King Jr.", then changed more to "Malcolm X/The Black Panthers" under Sienna Khan. And now Adam has formed his own clique that is somewhere between a rogue terrorist celland a really large street gang doing their own thing. And honestly, he/they're really just pawns of Cinder, since I get the feeling they didn't do anything of note till they started carrying out her plans.

Depends on your pain threshold for cringy writing.

I'd say watch a few of the fight scenes eg:
https://youtu.be/J2up1Ldu0vc

Listen to some music eg:
https://youtu.be/KRCHvZJnxYU

And then understand that the writing and 3d animation will get better as the show progresses, but the fight scenes will get worse (because the creator/fight choreographer died). The fights are still pretty good, they just don't quite hit the highs of before.

If that sounds okay, give it a shot.

>>95973227
Let's not put Monty on a pedestal. He was amazing at fight choreography, he created a unique and interesting world and his character designs were pretty good, but he was shit at writing a coherent story. I would have preferred if he stayed alive because the fights in RWBY were my main draw, but the writing in the show has been better than its ever been since he died not that that's saying much.

Monty's choreography never really moved past the stickman battles phase. Things tended to fall apart when he had to figure out how to suddenly make either one side win or one side stop winning in impressive fashion where it didn't make any sense for a comeback to occur.

The fact that he didn't story board anything is pretty obvious because of how goddawful his fight tended to end.

Oh, I'm not, and I somewhat agree with your assessment. I just meant to say that Monty's Vision stopped mattering the second he died is all. Although I DO disagree with the huge majority who constantly spout

>the writing in the show has been better than its ever been since he died.

This was a cooincidence since he died right when the series (a) actually started its plot, (b) when it, as I said before, escaped its super low budget, amateur hour where no one had any idea what they were doing and the background characters were still walking stick figures. etc.

It's true that he insisted on adding stupid shit like the dance sequence, but the dance itself (as a Beacon event) was still going to happen so Cinder could haxx0r the planet. People exaggerate how "bad" of a writer he was, and the addition of his amazeballs choreography and animation would have been worth a stupud event here and there. Plus, a few of the things that have been mentioned as having been changed (not only those mentioned in Shane's rant) make me think that some good stuff has been sacrified as well.

Part of it is that he interferes with a large number of ships and certain websites and portions of the fandom treat cocks like witches in the 1300's.

There have been massive tirades about Jaune and his status as the apparent deturagonist of RWBY as a whole but the only people that hate him for existing are the ones that are fearful of him getting in the way of their preferred coupling.
There are those that hate him for being dangerously close to a self-insert character but that's mostly here than anywhere else.

Personally I like him and don't really care what other people think, he'd a decent character and I would enjoy witnessing his adventures in a comic if he's ever ejected from the show.

He's a horribly gigantic loser whose "gotten better" so that he's only a huge loser now, and a self-insert, audience POV placeholder who's light years behind everyone else he's involved with. He's LITERALLY the same as the MC's of all those crappy animu light novels, except since RWBY is "really" the main characters he doesn't even evolve Kirito style into someone hateably awesome.

His ONLY in seasons 1 and 2, and some of 3, was to be the ignorant guy who doesn't know basic things about how Remnant works so that they could be explained to him, and therefore, to the audience. He has not only zero, but NEGATIVE skillset and abilities, and terribad saturday morning cartoon writing surrounding him. Despite being a useless ignoramous who still can't really fight, he was gifted some kind of informed ability of being "tactically/strategically skilleda s a leader" which came out of nowhere and was previously nonexistant" to keep him relevant. Much like light novel MCs, he had (one of the) hottest, most powerful and talented women in the show's world fall in love with him almost instantly out of nowhere for no reason despite being a horrible """"nice guy"""" loser creeping on Weiss.

While he kind of holds his weight in battle NOW, he mostly just fucked up for several seasons, including the mother of all fuckups "YOU HAD 1 JOB JAUNE" at the end of season 3.

I could go on, and I know he has fan and not everyone agrees, but this is why a large majority of the fandom hates him.

Nah, I can see it if Ruby happens to cross paths with Cinder that Cinder will try to incinerate her and would continue to do so until one is dead.

She crushed Tyrian by telling him she was disappointed in him. Probably because that would hurt him the most given how he worships her.

I feel like that was part of the point. She fits the bill of Mary Sue protagonist so that it was more shocking when she dies.

Pyrrah was far and away the strongest of the students and she still got got, so it establishes the gap that the main protagonist have to cover

I feel like RWBY is the perfect example of "trust me it gets better" that I've personally experienced. Season 1 was pretty rough in basically every department except the battles. Season 2 improved the writing and season 3 finally upped the general animation so it finally started feeling professionally made. I think the fights in season 4 were a step back from S3 but that can be attributed to them mostly fighting Grimm rather than other humans like they did in the tournament. The fight with Tyrion being the best one of the season kinda proves my point. Honestly I'm really excited for 5 and I'm pretty sure it will be the best one yet

>>
>>95969467
Jaune really should have been the main character - hell, he IS the main character in all but name, but the fucking writers wanted to have this gay girl power shit, so Jaune, who is the perfect protagonist and viewer lens into this world, is supposed to play second fiddle to a character voiced by a fatty trying to imitate a loli voice - a character with no personality or dimensions, while Jaune is a fully fleshed out individual with flaws who grows as a person and matures over time (something Ruby has yet to do), so Jaune steals the show every scene he's in.
>>
>>95975971

The original idea was that Pyrrha would do much better against Cinder and have the upper hand despite Cinder's maiden powers. Pyrrha was meant to be killed because Jaune came to help and interfered, and so she took a blow meant for him.

RT decided against it because they knew some people don't like Jaune, and letting him be partially responsible would make even more people hate him forever.

That makes a disturbing amount of sense for her character actually.
Jaune would have been at fault but that may have been a good thing, even if he hates himself for it it'd spur him on massively.

Jaune is the opposite of a "normal" self-insert character, where he's actually a character and not some kind of chuuni fantasy. This is why he bothers people who just want to see a chuuni harem character.

Lots of the things the characters think or do go over most peoples' heads because anime has given them brain poison and they think of them in terms of how anime characters would act.

I mean, he has always been one of the more competent ones out of the original Red and Blue teams.

Ok, see that's mostly wrong. You can say what you want about S6-10, but S11 to S13, the Chorus Trilogy, was fantastic, with the Reds and Blues actually doing stuff while still also standing around and talking, alongside the Freelancers instead of Freelancers doing all/most of the action.

Because he is LITERALLY the audience insert for the series. He is the one who is entering the world of hunters/huntresses at the beginning of the series for the first time. He knows nothing about Remnant, it's powers, its politics, its peoples, etc. He learns everything for the first time as the first time viewer does. Like the viewer, he is a powerless, nobody starting at the bottom, and compared to all the other cast members he is extremely generic at the beginning of the series, with no abilities, no cool weapon save for a basic sword/shield, no magic or otherwise. And within 5 minutes of entering Beacon he wins the heart of the most beautiful, most powerful, most famous of his contemporaries, basically because he is "kind", despite a shitload of glaring flaws outweighing his kindness. He is literally the archetypal audience self-insert.

I mean, yeah, you'd probably have people complaining even louder about Jaune having too much screentime in Volume 4, but it'd be WAY more compelling, coming off of a season finale where Jaune's blundering is directly responsible for Pyrrha's death.

I mean, wasn't that the point? Her arrogance being her downfall is a trope as old as time for a character like Yang.
Even in most fiction, the berserker types either learn how to control their rage or die heroically fighting massive amounts of enemies for the sake of the hero.
The arrogant are brutally and abruptly cut down.
>>
>>95978645
That's part of her evolution, I guess. She starts out by getting what she wants with strength (like with Junior in the Yellow Trailer) and is overconfident because she's strong. Then Neo happens, she wastes her get out of jail card, the whole world thinks she's a thug, Adam happens, her father rightfully calls her Semblance a temper tantrum.
Now she has to learn to be less impulsive and more in control of her Semblance.
>>
>>
>>95978730
>more in control of her Semblance
There is one thing that tickles the noggin though. Ruby describes her Semblance as something akin to "get hit, hit back twice as hard", but in the trailer her eyes glow red without any prompt. So either her Semblance changed or it's not what she thought it was. It's probably a rage fueled power increase, which means she doesn't need to get hit or rage out of control, just go cold fury.

It was about making Cinder feel like she was dominant and in control, her fear of Ruby was because she essentially took her power away in an instant.
Cinder felt like a God, then some brat comes along and makes you extra crispy. In addition to her belief in destiny Cinder probably was pissed that some brat was destined to have a power that is a counter to her own.

There is nothing wrong at all on being overconfident. I mean, Yang is the brute type fighter who just punches till the opponent is knocked out.

Jumping into Adam without knowing what the guy was capable of doing was her understimating her opponent and being reckless.

Damn, just pulled a marathon on this series. Is Jaune destined to suffer? Beyond losing his almost girlfriend, hearing her constant tip of the tongue confessions whenever he trains and likely feeling that he failed her what else are they going to throw at him?

Christ, since they're in Mistral I'm expecting him to have to break the news to her family and reach a new level of suffering.

He's probably going to hear the local populace talk shit about Pyrrha because remember to them, she slaughtered Penny with an attack that was way over powered for what Penny was doing. Through I'm more worried about Nora and Ruby's reactions to that, as they're the types more prone to outbursts. Even more, Yang will probably get the same treatment by the citizens of Mistral for what they think she did to Mercury

She was supposed to learn discipline and not rely on her Semblance because it turns her into a glass cannon.

Comparatively, so many of them have similar structure and often similar riffs.
Caffiene and I'm The One are one example.
Cold and Wings are similar enough where I accidentally sing one into the other.
Though I think some of them are intentionally lighter and darker versions of each other.
Die, for example, is the "opposite song" of Gold, using similar musical cues and lyrics. Another pair like that: This Will Be The Day and Sacrifice.
Compare
In time/Your heart will open minds/A story will be told/And victory is in a simple soul
The moon will sadly watch the roses die./In vain,/Lost, no gain,/But you're not taking me.

>>95980395
The problem is that they're sort of right. I actually really like Jaune, he's perhaps my favorite character. However, something about Pyrrha's death kind of suggests to me that her primary goal was to bring about character growth for Jaune by dying. I'm not fond of characters existing for such shallow reasons. I actually liked Pyrrha and was hoping we'd get more development from her. But then volume 3 happened.

>>95980470
Can I have it then? I like the bunny through her power is kinda shitty and broken since they didn't tell us how long those hard light copies last. Honestly, I see Team CFVY as a team connecting Monty and the fanbase, rabbit got her outfit from a fan, Coco got her name from a fan, too bad Fox and Yastutora don't really get to talk nor do we know anything about them cept that Yastutora may or may not be fucking Velet, through that may be headcannon because of her saying he was protecting her and the way he shielded her from the spikes of that one Grimm. I wonder where they are now, they were kinda Beacon's elite right? At least they aren't forever useless like Sun's team and Team FNKI, Flint and Neon we saw but who are K and I? How did a team like that come out of hardcore Atlus?

I know for sure team CRDL will show up to job to some other female again, it seems like they're thing.

What will the team be called Oscar joins Jaune/Nora/Ren? I know ORNJ is the most popular choice, but isn't the first slot always reserved for the leader? I get that Ozpin is in there, but I still think he'd defer to Jaune as leader.

>>95980295
It worked on me. Didn't care until the gameplay video for Ruby came in and Red Like Roses played over the fight intro so perfectly.

>>95980727
As established with Ren's first name being Lie, team letters can be surnames too.
To that end, Oscar's last name is Pine.

>>95980608
>How did a team like that come out of hardcore Atlus?
Never miss a beat.
Their entire plan was calculated from the start. Flynt plays support, and drops suppressing fire, on an instrument that can get particularly grating in close quarters if played the way he does. Meanwhile, Neon runs around, taunting the enemy, remaining untouched and staying perfectly timed with Flynt's attacks. As soon as the enemy inevitably makes a mistake (which is a lot easier to do with Yang, I might add), they capitalize on it and Neon gets hits in, all while continuing to move around in patterns designed to confuse the opponent and make them pay attention to one or the other, but never both at once.
>>
>>95980781
People are assuming as Oscar turns up at JNR's door and looks pretty goddamn nervous about doing so.

In volume 4, why is Ruby hearing Pyrrha call out for Jaune over and over in her dreams? Did she get a little Pyrrha dust in her eye when she went nutso on the top of the tower and is hearing Pyrrha's memories or is it something else?

The issue there wasn't even exact dates, just the sheer length of the skip. It felt like they tacked on the 6-8 month figure after writing the plot with a much smaller skip in mind. Vale still in the middle of evacuations, Ghira having no idea the WF did 9/11, Weiss acting like she hadn't seen her brother at all... it seemed like a few weeks at most.

Ruby has PTSD? Isn't that a little dark to give a 16 year old that? Wait, is that why she jumped into the fight with Tyrian and Qrow even through it didn't look like Qrow was in danger? I always thought it was weird how Ruby started panicking at that part and went all "THIS IS MY FIGHT,TOO!" Even through at that point she didn't have an aura anymore and had already seen the guy swap Ren and Nora away without any effort.

I really disagree with this reading of Pyrrha's character, it makes complete sense that she'd start ping-ponging between emotional extremes as the adults drop more and more pressure on her and then after she accidentially kills Penny and has the fall maiden die right next to her, if anything she probably blames the fall maiden's death on herself too since she probably views it as a result of her indecision.

Her heading back to the tower to martyr herself is what her entire character was written up towards, Jaune is a small piece of it and almost more of a bystander. If anything Jaune is the character that got written into that situation as an excuse to do something more with Pyrrha's death instead of the reverse.

But it's too early for that, they aren't strong enough, They have no idea where Salem is and above all else, there's no way Salem would let Ruby live long enough for her crew to save her.

Marathoned the series and have a few questions.

Why do they make such a big deal out of Ruby and her mom when Ruby was barely out of diapers when she died? All the OPs/songs/graveside chats make it seem like an important bond, but they've also flat out said that Ruby was super young when Summer died. Why does the scorpion guy have any interest whatsoever in Jaune? How did Ruby/Yang's doofy ass dead manage to get both girls on his team pregnant? Did he ever marry Yang's mom or did he just knock her up shortly before she went full RULES OF NATURE? Will we ever get another OP as good as OP 2?

RWBY are still around, since Weiss is miss moneybags she bought the tickets that Jaune got as a freebie. As a result both RWBY and JNPR are on the cruise and island tour.
It's just that Iona both picks on Jaune and might have something of a crush on him. Pyrrha supposedly gets slightly jealous of the time Iona gets around Jaune.

>Why do they make such a big deal out of Ruby and her mom when Ruby was barely out of diapers when she died?
Because Ruby is practically a clone of Summer and inherited her special eyes that resulted in Summer getting killed.

He wants that dick.
>How did Ruby/Yang's doofy ass dad manage to get both girls on his team pregnant?
They wanted that dick.
>Did he ever marry Yang's mom or did he just knock her up shortly before she went full RULES OF NATURE?
They probably never married, since she left Yang to Taiyang shorly after giving birth and fucking off back to her tribe.

Ruby has her sister but never really remembers her mum, but she's something like a fairy-tale character to her. A paragon of a kind if I had to guess.
When scorpion jumps on Jaune's shield, Jaune just fucking glares at him. This makes scorpion erect.
ENTIRE. TEAM. Taiyang is just pure dad material but many people think that Qrow is Ruby's father on account of her looking nothing like Taiyang.
He married Raven but she went RULES OF NATURE shortly after Yang was born.
No.

>>95981693
I think Ruby/Yang's dad knocked up Yang's mom first, but then he split up with her. You hear Qrow talk about he thinks Raven is not exactly the best mother in Vol. 3. That's how I saw it, anyways.
>>
I don't know about Ruby's outfit, but the trailer is a flashback to Yang before she leaves to Beacon. She spars with Ruby to make her feel better about being left alone when an Ursa shows up and attacks. I think Ruby gets knocked out and Yang has to fight it by herself.

But RNJR had the benefits of JNPR being a unit and Ruby. >>95982716 is very apt.
>>
>>95982666
Now that they have an actual enemy to face i'm pretty sure RWBY will see a character improvement, heroes are only as good as their villains right?
>>
>>95982784
Villains are Sauron's dejected sister, over-done bacon, a lunatic, big guy, fashionable moustache, discount edgier Vergil, Karma Chamelion and fuzzy-wuzzy's cunt twin.
What an amazing roster.

>>95982873

I absolutely did. To me they felt more ground and I was interested in learning about them as people more than slogging through RWBY and their very out there adventures

>>95982915
Not much, he'll probably be pissed at Ozpin more than Oscar, shouting at Ozpin through Oscar.
>>
>>95982915
This is something I hope actually happens. Based on Jaune's interaction with Qrow it's apparent that he fully/partially blames Ozpin for Pyrrha's death. I wonder how Jaune's going to navigate making it clear that he's shitting on Ozpin and not Oscar.
>>
>>95968188
Probably doesn't mean that much, but when I went to see the NGNL prequel movie there was a promo for a RWBY screening event. Honestly it's just weird seeing anything Rooster Teeth related getting big after 2010.

If for some reason RT manages to get Arcsys to agree in letting their characters appear in RWBY, the story will improve by bounds.

>>95983031
This is probably my biggest gripe. JNPR isn't broiling in drama save for fairly light Arkos stuff and then during Pyrrha's death. The first was kind of in the background save for parts of V2 and V3 and drama's going to be understandable when a teammate dies.
>>
>>95983083
Letting Susano'o in Remnant, why god? I think RWBY has it's ups and downs like anybody else but they don't deserve that.
>>
>>95983147
Yeah but beyond JNPRs light drama, they're really nothing else but Jaune getting stronger and Ren and Noras relationship
>>
>>95983083
The only chance Remnant has are either in the Blazblue characters or if for some reason the snakes are working against each other.

Either way the show would improve by bounds as there is a real threat.
>>
>>95983172
Especially because people in Remnant fight with their souls.
Susa can crush souls and does so in his victory pose.
>>
>>95983147
Fair enough. For me I enjoyed the slower growth from it from JNPR than RWBY’s Yang and Blakes are probably the biggest for it because Yangs swallows her whole character to the point she is nothing but “WAAAH MY MOM LEFT ME” and Blake actively gets worse the more the show goes on
>>
>>95983191
True. But I feel that can leave more to explore about them and their pasts without it just being the entirety of their character. Or at least hopefully not
>>
>>95982873
Someone please tell me if this is right, and if not, then what is right:
Salem, cinder, tyrian, Hazel, Watts, Adam, Ilia, Lionhearted


Also if that is right, then you probably forgot Neo.
>>
>>95983237
Hakumen would be great, I just imagine him showing up where a shit load of Grimm are and ZEA-ing till they fuck off.
>>

I don't get it.

You were right but Neo isn't relevant anymore anon.
>>
>>95983304
The joke is Lizard Girl inspired Noras Leg Breaking Lifestyle
>>
>>95983274
I fear they dont care much for treating the backstories of JNPR all that well if how Rens backstory was treated was anything to go by.
Over halfway through the volume it just so happens to be where Ren lives, the monster that killed his parents just so happens to still be around and they kill it within an hour and even have him look up Noras skirt in the process, backstory complete, parents avenged.
It just sort of happened and now it's done.
>>
>>95983237
Ozpin and Rachel are observers while Salem is a fragment of Terumi?
Does that mean Ozpin was trying to get Pyrrha into a Susano'o Unit like Hakumen?
>>
>>95983359
>Jaune won't get more of a backstory than what he's already got so we will never have questions about him answered.

>>95983359
Well we can only hope for the best I guess. Maybe they might do something maybe they wont.

I just feel like as I go on I really just want a JNR spinoff novel so i can stop watching this show and being frustrated 3/4ths of the time
>>
>>95983399
It could also be that Salem is a failed Murakumo that's stuck somewhere in the Black Beast state,
Also, it'd be more like trying to force a Sealed Weapon onto somebody that merging them with the susano-o unit.
>>
>>95983478
Would Yang get Bloodedge? Or is that more Ruby's thing?
>>
>>95983399
As for Salem, a unique case where Terumi tried to possess a body that still had a soul. Didn't work out obviously.

And for Pyrrah? She'd probably end up like pic related had she not become a bonfire.
>>
>>95983359
I think the build up to that grimm was decent enough, they just should've given the fight its own episode. And not done a skirt gag in the middle of it. And maybe not made the grimm a wacky waving inflatable arm flaiming tube man.
>>
>>95983529
More Ruby's thing, Yang would get an Ars Magus and slap it into some gauntets for herself.
>>
>>95983306
Based on what I read on a previous thread, Neo is probably going to come back holding a grudge (I assume against Ruby) and probably mentally unstable.
There was no indication she'd actively co-operate with Salem though.
>>
>>95983337
thanks
>>
>>95983605
Thing is, Neo and Roman were starter villains and unless we go back to Vale I really don't see Neo being in any way, shape or form relevant aside from showing how far Yang has come since Neo kicked her ass.
If she ates Ruby, that's fine, but I really just don't see it.
>>
>>95983574

I honestly don't think they should have killed it, they should have barely escaped and left the epic battle for later, like have it invade Haven.
I also think they should have embraced more of the Nucks actual mythology, made it more interesting

Vacuo is such a shithole that Salem has no plans to conquer it at all.

Jaune's good ending is not being an immortal stuck inside a suit of armour that belongs to a God of evil for eternity.
In the show proper Jaune's good ending will have him start up a fifth kingdom on the ruins of where Salem is, adopting the four maidens as daughters after the others have been killed. He dies an old man, surrounded by a loving family following his late wife into Remnant heaven who just so happened to be Yang or Weiss, unless he gets an ex bandit waifu or something.
>>
>>95983862
You'll basically never see anything about RWBY save for STALKER threads were it's blowing a ton of other shows out the water in sales rankings.

If Jaune gets an new love intrest its gonna be someone entierly new. Theres too much risk to shop him with anyone of RWBY.

>>
>>95984122
Plz no. He doesn’t deserve that kind of suffering. He needs a happy ending where he gets to be a cranky old man with his 8 adopted kids

So how old is Ozpin? He mentioned that the soul transfer thing was weird to him the first time, too, so is he like, a gigantic collective of a bunch of different people?

SPOILERS

All 4 girls featured.

RNJR in Mistral, town scenes. They go to haven, it's deserted. Lionharts the only one there. It was chaos after fall of beacon, mistral council has all hunters on duty. No one ti help them, and Leo says it'll take weeks for a party.

Qrow reveals only maidens can open the chambers relics are hidden in. 1 maiden assigned to each relic. This is why Salem needs to control them. Spring broke under the stres/ptsd and fled her duties years ago. Raven has hid her and cultivated her as one if her own for years. RNJR and havens battle will be to defeat Branwen clan and retrieve Spring willingly or not.

After RNJR leaves, Leo gives all the info right to watts.

That would be bad end 2 anon.
There is a reason we save before the choices in RPG's, it' so we can get the good endings.

Jaune's true ending is that he holds waves of Grimm off at the gate so that Salem is distracted trying to crush his forces that she fails to notice SILVER EYES fucking her shit raw from behind and fails to react in time. Leading to a climatic fight on their end. After this the Big Bad Wolf appears through and Jaune and Ruby manage to force it back but neither is willing to let the other die in their place and so go to the Big Bad Wolf's realm together to kill it and find a way home.

So does this mean Spring is not a kiddo? Also I am not looking forward to Raven bullshit nor the facat we apparently aren’t exploring Haven at all

Reminder that Jaune's family must hate him since they let him go to a top tier Hunter school like Beacon fully knowing he had no training, no Aura, and no chance in hell of surviving initiation without help.
Seriously, his dad is a Huntsman according to him, he probably knew that they would toss him into a forest of Grimm but all he told Jaune was " Dont worry if you fail you can always come home."
>>
How do they get away with co-ed rooms full of 17-year-olds? Is that why there are no teams with only one girl on them?
>>
>>95984353
I am of the mind that Jaune's dad is a defender of his town, but not a Huntsman.
Compared to a Huntsman Papa Arc is a civilian but compared to a civilian, Papa Arc can fuck Grimm raw. He just relies on tatics, resources and pure skill.

Weiss,s ship is almost in mistrial city when they pick up local broadcast of locals getting killed by Grimm. Weiss wants to help, but pilot refuses on logical terms, i.e he's not a douche.

Blake, sun, and family turned over all the evidence on illia,s scroll, but the fenic,s simply let illia take the fall as working alone, i.e. no gang conspiracy. Sun and ghira have a cute moment being pissed together.

Illia shows up to talk to blake alone, as the family are denouncing the fang and the brothers publicly the next day, trusting the country will side with them. Illia warms this plan will fail and they are the ones who will fall.

She entered the school pretending to be a guy, and so was placed in what the school believed to be an all-boy team. She had a a big dramatic offscreen plotline about not running from who she is and trusting her friends that culminated in her revealing that she was actually a reverse trap and is accepted by her team and other friends.

Nah, Jaune's gag reel would be him having a picnic with his family, except they couldn't find actors for his family so they're being played by the rest of the cast. Like Makoto's gag reel.

Right off the bat we're coming off hot, we have a maiden that doesn't want to be a maiden just like Pyrrha, we have more of miss survival of the fittest, we have blake's parents about to paint a giant fuckign target on their backs since they do not know that the fang is corrupted by extremists all the way down to their routes because adam and the actual leader soul their souls to Salem and Weiss is likely going to do something crazy.

I didn't expect a rogue maiden but if it's written well such as she became a maiden by force, then I'd like to see the darker side of Ozpin's personality again, I mean he basically scared the living hell out of Pyrrha and did a piss poor job of easing her fears, hell she might even be afraid even more thanks to the failure to protect the fall maiden, Amber shouldn't have died so easily

I'm actually looking forward to that, I was worried that the Maidens were going to be nothing more than plot devices and just that, Zwei has more character than Amber ever did, and a Maiden who does not want to be a Maiden is exactly what I wanted.

Why must they fight? :D
>>
>>95984914
Easy, just talk about how they'll spring this shit on you in a stressful manner and that basically there are people out there who want to strip you of your powers and your soul before killing you in a soul crushing way.

Pretty straightforward. I'm sure she'll want to get onboard.
>>
>>95984971
That's what Grimm are for
>>
>>95984914
By talking about her, not as a Maiden but as his beta orbiter! I mean, his teammate and partner!
Maybe even an "I'll keep you safe".
Look, I'm more motivated by a Lady and Knight dynamic here, I eat that shit up.
>>
>>95977093
I have no idea why people say they relate to Jaune. What about a guy with seven sisters who probably has an important family who has more experience with women than the other males and has gone through loss... is relatable to all the fat virgin kids who watch this show?

[IT HAS TO BE THIS WAY INTENSIFIES]

To be honest, RT is probably going to fuck this up and never be as hype as this picture
>>
It seems like they're intentionally making Weiss go on a detour because they have no idea what to do with her

No Ironwood randomly shoved into the opening? Things don't look too good this season for Best Metal Boy.

>Jaune fighting on par with Cinder.
JAUNEFAGS JUST KEEP TRYING.
>>
>>95978169

This >>95978234

Jaune is introduced as the typical self-insert but eventually evolves into his own character with flaws, ideals and goals.

He got a cute girl crushing on him and she died before he could screw her. How is that for a self-insert?
>>
>>95985026
He's too busy being Cyborg Hitler back in Atlas.
>>
>>95985026
We didn't know about him being in the opening until we saw it last time, so don't count him out just yet
>>
>>95985011
>This is the moment that redeems I May Fall.
>It's an acoustic remix on a guitar, both because Jaune plays guitar and because he's a simple guy reflecting his mundane origins.
>Cinder doesn't even so much as register him as a threat than as a gnat.
>What follows can't be called a fight, it's too brutal for that. If not for his stupid levels of aura, he would die quickly.
>Instead we don't know what happened to either, save heavy blood-loss.

>>95985043

At this point, it kinda feels like Jaune is being set up to be Oscar's right-hand man...
>>
>>95981072
>>95981454
Nora, Ruby, Jaune: NANIIIIII
Ren: Hmm...

There's not alot of Jaune,Nora and Ren in the OP, Ruby is fighting Cinder, Yang is fighting Hazel, they clash fists and generic anime explosion happens,Weiss and her knight are fighting Tyrian, his tail is still fucked and Weiss is fighting Adam then the shot that other anon posted happens Seems like they're going for a Time to say goodbye style ffor this one because the lyrics sound hopeful
>>
>>95985041

Nigga I never said par, like to be honest, I imagine his ass would get beat, he'd be walking to his death. But there's a part of me that just likes the sheer FUCK YOU vengeance in his eyes in this picture, just him TRYING to beat her.

WAIT JUST A FUCKING SECOND HERE

I think Jaune's going to die trying to kill Cinder.

Think about, Cinder is fire, Joan of Arc burnt to death after her noble cause.

They've done this mythology bullshit with Cinder shooting pyrrha in the ankle before she got killed by cinder.

>>95969873
Yes she was. And so did Pyrrha if I'm not mistaken. Which is probably why he kept going, apart from the fact that he's stupid.

And the possibility that his attempts to court her seen in show were the ONLY times he actually tried over the course of who knows how many months/years. Which really isn't that much.

He might but we have no idea if he will since not every character will follow their inspiration.
Chances are that Jaune's semblance will cause hum pain or burning the more he uses it, that's my guess anyway.
I just don't see him dying any time soon.
>>
>>95985211
Yang will kill Jaune, calling it now. Something will happen and Yang will fly off the handle harder than normal and Jaune will get caught in the blaze.
>>
>>95985211
Nah. I dont think M&K could even do something THAT anticlimactic and obvious

They've also said that the characters arent going to follow their inspirations fates.

reminder that if Jaune dies there'll be like 2 CIS MALES left on the show

Nigga have you met them? They borked the entire robot thing for penny, as well blake being a faunus was the most obvious thing since water being wet.

That and they can barely write themselves out of a paper

> Any in a harem battle anime?

Have you seen harem battle anime?

The women aren't competent at all. Heremettes regularly lead entire armies into battle and win and somehow get overpowered by starving metheads who look at them too hard. "My name is Princess Alexilia! I can summon fireballs and teleport, but if a man looks at me I lose my powers and I'm suddenly so weak even my clothes weigh me down."

If RWBY was an anime She'd put all of her effort into swinging at Cardin, he'd block it unscathed because he's a guy and pic related.
>>
>>95985313
>Uhh, then explain the ankle shot for pyhrra then?
Something planned way, way in advance.
Jaune, Nora and Ren are more or less last-minute additions to the show compared to Pyrrha, unlike Pyrrha they weren't written solely to die.
>>
>>95985364
I was thinking Sun and Ironwood, but Ironwood might be a closet flaming homosexual

The first episode seems okay, but I'm having a hard time being remotely optimistic about how V5 will end.

>>95985117
>Weiss and her knight are fighting Tyrian

Yikes, that's how you know they're pretty much done with him. I guess he used up all his relevance in the last volume

>He got a cute girl crushing on him and she died before he could screw her. How is that for a self-insert?

This. This right here.

Every time I hear some dipshit unironcally call Jaune a Self-insert in the "flawless gary stu" sense, I look at all the shit he's gone through and wonder how much of a Masochist Miles would have to be to put what is supposedly himself through all that.
>>
>>95985433
Heh that's pretty good
>>
>>95985403

Like, it's not just that most of the cast in harem battle anime are useless but they're literally a series of events that can only be described as "Incredibly powerful archmages who could literally burn down the entire city with a snap of their fingers regularly require the help of a man because somehow rapists have a natural 100% immunity to magic that's casted by women."
>>
>>95985457
That too.
>>
What does Yang do in the episode other than punch that one dude?
>>
>>95985470
I dunnow maybe the dudes got a major self loathing problem

Could we get more elaboration on the Yang thing please?

>>95985482
>"Incredibly powerful archmages who could literally burn down the entire city with a snap of their fingers regularly require the help of a man because somehow rapists have a natural 100% immunity to magic that's casted by women."
Don't forget the man who saves them then uses the spell that the rapist are immune too and it works perfectly.
>>
>>95985510
He probably does some shitty flirting and she punches him because why not that gets women onboard
>>
>>95974930
I think it's considered a sort of "B-canon" to the show the way that the manga is.

Or how in franchises like Star Wars you have something that's the definitive canon and what's ultimately important (the movies) and in other places you have things like the cartoons, comics and books and whatnot that are lesser canon. And in the event of continuity conflicts, A-canon will always trump B-canon.

In other words, it's Canon until stated otherwise.
>>
>>95985409

Sold out. 2 or 3 autists (male) at the end trying to yell out all the catchy lines from the entire thing. Near riot because the fucktards in the booth couldn't get the fucking disk to work on time. Crowd orientation: Crossover still in HS animu girls. Hispanic gangbangers. normal white males, a few autists, some angry bikers, Christmas cakes. It is like watching cartoons in bed with 15 strangers in a line because everyone had the seat recliners all the way back with feet up and were getting loaded.
>>
>>95985433
>>95985433

Other points of note:

Yang went after mom, not rubes. She stops at a hotel has station where the dude creeps on her. She ignores him till he goes hurry, yet hair is purty, then the punch. But he,s in the Branwen clan, hence why he gets to look unique. He'll probably take yang to raven.

Lots of qrow drunk humor. The after credits scene from last season replays chronologically in this ep. Oscar gets taken back to meet the others, including rubes. Vic really cheeses the shit out of his performance.

Also not mentioned in the opening role, yang vs. Mercyry, cinder vs either spring or sienna don't know which, qrow and raven, its basically one huge battle scene for the OP
>>
>>95985539
Yep, that's what happened. Goodbye to the "Raven's tribe member" theory.

What happens is that he flirts with Yang but she shows a bit of more self-control by simply telling to back off. He continues and she keeps enduring it until he tries to grab her hair and that's the last straw.
>>

Oh and a LOT of "SHUT THE FUCK UP AND PUT IT THE FUCK BACK ON" whenever the episode would switch over into commentary from the creators for mini intermissions.
>>
>>95985583
That just kind of boring. But then again I suppose they are still trying o win points from Tumbler because they are still mad at them

>>95985574
Did the girl Cinder was fighting have tiger ears? Because that's Sienna
>>
>>95985607
Wow that was definitely better than V4s intro
>>
>>95985574
Yeah, everyone is fighting, it's a chaotic opening and shit is already hitting the fan in episode one, those grimm that the pilot heard over the radio killing people? Those a grimm that showed up after Raven's group attacked a settlement. Get ready for alot of Raven and the spring maiden social Darwinist shit. She really does not look like a nice person at all.
>>
>>95985574
This episode Is getting worse the more I hear about it
>>
>>95985574

The bouncing off the ceiling out the door after the punch was kinda funny.
>>
>>95985607
Interesting Jaune wasn't even in any of the fighting scenes but Ren and Nora where.
>>
>>95985732
Maybe its damage control because of how mad people were that he was in the volume 4 intro
>>
>>95985526

It's because being male makes you immune to magic done by females, silly!
>>
>>95985607
>Nora and Ren vs Hazel
>Hazel doesn't have a weapon
>Oscar being trained to fight with Oz's cane
>Weiss summoning the big fucking statue she fought in her trailer
>Yang getting back at that douchebag Mercury

I like this one, I'm sure my brother is gonna like it,too. I'm certain that the spring girl is going to be Cinder's next victim
>>
>>95985117
Your description is shit
>>
>>95985574
>>95985626
Cinder wasn't fighting anyone. She's looks glaring at some girl who's glaring back. Said girl is white so it can't be Sienna.

And Jaune doesn't fight either. Ren and Nora are shown fighting Hazel but Jaune is missing from the entire OP. The only scene he gets is a shot with his teammates but even Ren and Nora get highlighted.
>>
>>95985607
That's definitely the spring maiden looking at Cinder
>>
>>95985788
Yeah its definitely damage control then. Makes sense leddit and Tumbler were on a warpath for him last Volume
>>
>>95985788
>Jaune is missing from the entire OP.
He's sitting on the couch looking annoyed, Rube looks excited, and Ren is reading a book
>>
>>95985811
I remember people being pretty fucking mad Jaune could stop that grimm monster with his sword sword long enough to give Nora time to snap Ren out of his blind rage.

Normally I love that kind of stuff, but this is the third time they've done this, and the previous times always had a pair-the-spares moment to them.

I'm pretty sure they know. They realized how much attention Jaune was getting in Vol. 1, and they were heavily criticized for it.

That made sense though. He's a bit bulky.

As much as I'd WANT Pyrrha to come back completely, the odds of that would've been low if Monty were still alive.

Now that he's dead, there's pretty much no way. Characters accepting she's gone and moving on is pretty gonna be much the show's way of coming to terms with that (And already is, as Let's Just Live already demonstrated).

That said, that doesn't rule out the possibility of Ghost!Pyrrha. If for no other reason than closure.

This in particular. Once a series makes it clear that characters can come back from the dead it really destroys any sense of danger the story has. Sure, Pyrrha coming back would satisfy the Pyrrhafag and Arkosfag in me but it would ultimately damage the story to a staggering degree.

Further details:

Winter: Creation
Summer: Destruction

>>
>>95986289
Still crossing my fingers for Ghost!Pyrrha visiting Jaune and giving him closure.
>>
>>95986333
Yeah that's pretty much it.

Pyrrha liked him because he treated her like a person and a friend instead of an impossible, unapproachable demigoddess that they'd never satisfy.

She even said it outright to him at the dance.
>>
>>95986333
You're right. Pyrrha liked Jaune because he didn't put her on a pedestal. He saw her for her instead of the Invincible Girl.

I honestly kind of like the reasoning behind that. I've always been a sucker for romances where one partner gives the other a sense of normality. That's just me though.

>>95986367

Also, im glad Mercury is getting some stuff to do this season. I hope he isn't just mini-boss status to show how "improved" Yang is

that'd be cool to see her be human and influence Jaune in a negative way out of selfishness
>>
>>95986401
Don't cut yourself on the edge, man.

>>95986401
That's actually worse. Pyrrha would never encourage Jaune to give up and die. She'd encourage him to keep on trucking.

>>95986436
I wouldn't trust the opening for who's going to fight who, every opening has teased fights that never happened.

It's great, I was annoyed that Yang was going to be a helicopter sibling again, The sooner we get this confrontation with her mother the better off we'll be.
