Ilia's expressed an attraction to Blake. All we need now is to introduce a girlfriend for her. Because obviously no one in the main cast will be gay.

It's pretty obvious Em is about twenty times more gay than Ilia is. To the point that I don't think I've ever seen anyone in the fandom deny it when it's discussed.

If we're lucky, Jaune's semblance will be cost dependent healing rather than turning him into a cleric, and he'll either die outright from transferring Weiss' injury to himself or be killed after his aura is consumed and he's weakened to heal her.

>still thinks there will be a lesbian in team RWBY

You're doing relatively well for this fandom, but there's still some delusion in you.
>>
Its kind of inevitable that Jaune will unlock his Semblance and heal Weiss. That I'll accept.

What I'm praying for is that we actually get something we all want, no matter what your ship: Jaune gives up on Weiss. Not only do we get his Semblance - this had to come about eventually - but RT actually does a stroke of good writing where Jaune grows out of that silly infatuation for Weiss and realizes the only girl who was for him is dead.

Weiss and him could have a moment, sure, but only to show that they can be friends and that's it. Then Blake comes in and not only is RWBY reunited, but we can actually have a show that's a bit more focused on them with Jaune sticking to the background as he has been up till now. Volume 5 has been rather good so far, and this would really bump the show back up for me.

And then we can go back to our ship wars without worrying anymore about surprise Jaune instances to ruin it for everyone.

Crazy-talk? Maybe. But I'll stick to this delusion.

I'm sorry, but... fucking what? Has there been even the slightest indication that he still holds a torch for her? That he didn't move on after the dance, growing closer with Pyrrha, and her subsequent, traumatizing death?

Their only interaction thus far since the reunion has been in a group setting as perfectly amicable friends. The only reason I can even think someone might still think there's a flame in need of snuffing out is plain paranoia over having het sprung on us out of nowhere, which...

Okay yeah, I get it.

Even if Freezerburn is my OTP, I think Yang and Ilia could actually be kind of cute/fun.

"You had an unrequited crush on Blake too?"
"Yup."
"Wanna go get smashed and make out behind a dumpster?"
"Oh thank god I thought you'd never ask."

Yang’s supposed feelings from a scene that could be interpreted differently anyways really don’t matter because at this point Blake/Sun is all but confirmed.

It’s really quite simple and you people keep trying to make it complicated: Ilia is already there for the >muh LGBT representation crowd, RT doesn’t need anyone else for that.

What do you think this is, some kind of good show?
>>
>>2509248
On the one hand, yes, RWBY is terribly written and at times seems to go out of its way to disappoint.

On the other, I look at Blake/Sun and I just see him getting friend-zoned hard through the course of all recent events.

The preview showed Ruby waking up. So she will get to see skewered Weiss and hopefully have a freakout over it.

Going to also add the idea Ren will probably use his semblance to calm everyone down.
Yang won't lose control beecause of that, and she's already witnessed first HAND how not beeing able to control her emotions can lead to her or others getting hurt.
Yangs probably trained enough with Tai while recovering before she set out for Ravens for a "5 minutes of training to Eye of the Tiger 80s style training montage" to allow her to beat Mercury.

Sun actually is relevant. If you haven't noticed, they have given him a lot of screentime to bond with Blake.

Even Sun-fags don't believe this is even remotely in the realm of possibility fair bait anon.
If Sun and Adam fight at all, it's to kill him off because clearly RT doesn't know what to even do with him as a character, not to mention apparently it takes literal weeks to animate his gun-chucks even for a few seconds like what we saw in chapter 10.

Ok, Miles. I'm totally sure Pyrrha didn't cause a pyrrhic victory and die after being shot through the heel, and that Yang didn't learn not to be too hot, and that jaune isn't a """natural born leader""" willing to sacrifice himself for the good of allies, and that Cinder isn't going to turn out to be someone who suffered and was powerless and had a magical being grant her wishes.
>>
>>2510809
I don't think that argument really holds. It's trivially easy to incorporate elements of the characters they are based off and then change the final "and then he died horribly" into "and then he didn't die horribly." I'd be astonished if all of JNPR died like their inspirations did.

How did they manage to make it so awkward and bad? There's supposed to be like 10 people fighting in that room, but it literally feels like everyone is just standing around and waiting for the camera to point at them and then more and flail around awkwardly for a few seconds. Why does so little fighting happen? Why are there so many characters if there is nothing for them to do? Why are characters no one cares about talking all the time? Who is supposed to even be the main character, the focal point the volume anymore? What's wrong with her voice? You can't just let your characters announce how they feel - that makes me angry!

Pretty sure they said early on that this would not be the case, though I don't remember the source so that could be wrong. I assume at least one of the four would become a maiden (probs not Ruby since she seems to have anti maiden powers).
>>
>>2512475
That sounds like a stupid thing to confirm, and M&K are notoriously leery of saying anything.
Also, silver eyes aren't anti-Maiden. Raven was unaffected by the blast which indicates that Cinder is vulnerable because of the Grimm infestation.
>>
>>2512480
>Raven was unaffected by the blast
Because Ruby was only aiming at Cinder and she fainted 1 second later. There wasn't power enough to affect Raven.
>>
>>2512508
The blast didn't look like a directed attack. It's much more likely that it actually just is an anti-Grimm weapon than something else.
>>
>>2512509
It's Ruby's ultimate adorbs attack

>>2512508
She was't looking at the fuck huge wyvern either. And although, yes, she was interrupted this time, Raven is a hell of a lot smaller than Glenn and was a lot closer.
>>
>>2512509
Why do they even want her alive if it's just an anti-Grimm technique?
>>
>>2512619
Because Cinder has a fixation and Salem can't say no.
>>
>>2512619
Probably because it's rare to find a silver-eyed warrior who is still just a child, and Salem wants to sit her down and explain that Ozpin is a shitlord and she's trying to bring balance back to the world despite constant human interference.

>>2512621
Salem is the one who originally asked for her alive instead of letting Tyrian kill her.

>>2512379
Because they are cheap and because this entire fight makes zero sense unless the villains spend most of the time just standing around. They are completely out-matched. Tyrian alone had RNJR on the ropes, how would they + Oscar and Qrow take on Hazel, Merc, Em, Raven, Vernal, maiden Cinder and Leo sitting in the back shooting half-assed blasts?

It's the same reason the villains did literally nothing but stand there at the start of the episode for several minutes while they let the heroes do their shit and start healing Weiss, and why no one but Hazel bothered to attack or stop what was happening until Yang went to go interfere with Cinder, at which point Merc and Em still continued to fuck around.

There is some unholy untapped potential in having Cinder Ruby and Salem all in the same evil fortress. Hostage arc when?


Okay wild speculation time! When did Raven become a maiden? Did she get it from Summer when she died in vague circumstances? You'd have to assume that, it makes the most sense to me otherwise you'd think Oz&Co. would know.

Is Cinder going to gut her like a fish and if she does are we looking at double maiden CInder or some clever portal shit leading to Raven clocking out elsewhere on her own term and passing that ball on?
>>
>>2512655
It honestly seems like they forgot how maidens work.

It can't have been from Summer, because Leo had first hand experience training the "child" before she left "more than a decade ago" because she couldn't handle the responsibility. Summer doesn't seem like the type to run and is from Vale, so she wasn't the child. Raven seems like she'd be far too old in any situation, and I can't imagine she was the child being trained since how the fuck did Oz not know and Leo say nothing to EITHER side about it.

As for what will happen, she will almost certainly die. The maidens are too important to the story, so I can't imagine she's going to just go back to being a bandit (as if Salem or Ozpin would just leave her alone). They aren't going to let her join the heroes and have maiden Raven just running around helping them out. Either Cinder will double maiden and become an even greater threat, and the heroes will retreat to Atlas/Vacuo and get maiden powers.. or much more likely, Raven will be killed by Cinder and in her final moments will feel regret over not being there for Qrow and Yang, and her powers will go to Yang.

She won't. Her tribe is everything and Vacuo is both closer to Salem and less secure than any other country, and in addition to being chased down by Salem's forces, she is now also being targeted by Ozpin's group. She is going to die before this volume ends.

Not that I think it makes a difference for your point, but I'm pretty sure they were only together for less than a year; in fact I think we only passed the one year mark during/after volume 4 with all the time skips involved in that.
>>
>>2514965
I think by the time Ruby left Patch with RNJR about 1 year had passed since the beginning of the series and currently, since it's fall again, it's been 1 and 3/4 years since the beginning of the series.

At this rate all the characters will be another year older by the time we hit Atlas.

I enjoyed the little Ruby headbutt, Nora smacking Hazel around, Blake's arrival finally, Adam's bitchslap, Weiss back in action, the brief reunion (that 2 second Bee stare tho), and one or two others I may be forgetting.

Small, brief things but I found them satisfying when tacked onto the Maiden fight. More than enough for me anyway, though some will obviously disagree. It made me enjoy the episode and has me excited for the finale and that's all I care about.

>>2517684
These are all terrible.

The sum development of Ruby's hand-to-hand combat training was to fucking headbutt someone who wasn't paying attention and then slowly reach down to get her scythe. Nora completely shifted power levels for no reason while Hazel continues to somehow not be able to take care of a bunch of children. Adam was built up for FIVE fucking volumes to swing one attack and then stand there and wait for Blake to hammer him once. On top of taking control of the entire main White Fang but for some reason only having half a dozen fucking members with him in the major attack. Roman literally brought more to steal god damn dust in Volume 1, what the fuck?

This episode was just more of the same trash the two before it were.

I hate when brainlets try to criticize RWBY. It makes the mountains of actual criticism the show deserves seem less valid.

Didn't he have moments with both Pyrrha and Neptune showcasing how his attraction to Weiss was genuine and not just a shallow crush?

Of course immediately following that he finally clued in to Pyrrha's feelings, and then that went south, and they haven't really addressed things since. Really hope they don't go back to it. Honestly I don't think it would be the /worst/ thing, but I would really rather they just didn't.
>>
>>2518688
>Didn't he have moments with both Pyrrha and Neptune showcasing how his attraction to Weiss was genuine and not just a shallow crush?
No?
>>
>>2518688
His crush on Weiss always felt like just "Ha ha look at the nerd crush on the popular girl" type of thing to make his relationship with Pyrrha be that much more genuine.

Like she never treated him in any way that would make you think he liked her for her, to be honest.
>>
>>
>>2518688
>>2518692
>>2518726
It was a mixed of both if we're being honest here. His feelings for her were ultimately coming from an honest place even if he went about expressing them in the worst way possible. Which sounds about right for someone his age. His real failure was his inability to accept that Weiss's feelings for him (as in the lack of them) also came from an honest place. Jaune finally accepting Weiss's (lack of) feelings for him marked a moment of growth and is when we see the story transitioned more towards Arkos. Well, at least until the torpedoes hit the water. Jaune has matured quite a bit and I like him a lot more now than I ever thought I would. He's a fine character. He just stands out badly because Ruby's story is being saved for the last minute for some obscene reason and isn't being fed to us yet. So she feels a bit lackluster compared to everyone who has a major story going on and Jaune has been with her for a while so he has stood out the worse.

>Cinder lives through freezing and getting thrown into an abyss after her aura goes ka-poot
I'd be pissed more than anything if she survives. I didn't hate Cinder, she will definitely be #2 favorite villain of the series after Roman, of course but in many movies and shows, whenever someone becomes an ice sculpture, any fall from any height will shatter that bitch, even if they're gently knocked over. So unless there's some magjcal spring or giant feathered cushion to break her fall, Cinder be icecubes now.
>>
>>2519268
Can't maidens use their powers without an aura?

Cinder could survive if she melts the ice and grabs the wall with her grimm arm.
>>
>>2519280
This.
Aside from the fact Cinder hasn't even gotten a proper backstory yet and her beef with Ruby and I guess even Jaune's beef with her haven't been resolved yet, if she was really dead I honestly don't think they would have shyed away from seeing or even just hearing her shatter.
Also killing Cinder at this point opens the whole can of worms that is "Who becomes the next Fall Maiden?" that would very quickly become a writing nightmare.
>>
>>2519289
Anyone who doesn't think Cinder's gonna crawl out of that pit with even more parts of her taken over by Grimm is a fool
>>

I'd say Ruby would be next fall maiden, since Cinder is obsessed with her, and the last person the maiden thinks of gets the power if they're a young maiden.
>>
>>2518777
>voice actresses aren't comfortable with it
What is it about VAs that makes people ascribe so much authority to them in regards to the projects they're voicing? I see this come up all the time. "Oh, the VA refused to do this or that, the VA didn't like it, the VA wanted to do this" etc. It's complete hooey. Being a voice actor does not give them any kind of creative control over the project beyond how they deliver their lines, and even that is subject to the whims of their director. They're just handed a script to read. IIRC the RWBY actors don't even know what's going to happen in the show until they get the script.

If the writers are dead-set on something significant happening to a character (like, for example, a romance) they're not going to just drop it because one of the voice actors has personal hangups about some of the lines the character says. Tons of actors end up not liking the characters they play or the lines they speak, but they still do it because it's their job.
>>
>>2519316
>I'd say Ruby would be next fall maiden
I hope not, just because it would be such a waste.

At this point I feel like they just don't like the character at all and much prefer writing for everyone else over her, but had to throw her a bone with the punch beams from the punch dimension because she's the titular character and they have to at least pretend she's important somehow.

Not them, but
1) Neither is Cinders. Their auras are low, they haven't shattered. Go back and watch the scene, and then go back and see what happens when Weiss' aura breaks the episode before, or Pyrrha's in V3 finale, or Amber's in Beginning of the End.
2) She wouldn't even need aura, she has fucking fire magic that doesn't require having aura.

Qrow vs. Tyrian is a better example of what happens when your aura breaks. It lights up then after that you're vulnerable. Tyrian could block bullets with his tail while his aura was good but after his it lit up he got his tail cut off. After Qrow's aura broke he got cut and poisoned. Cinder and Raven both had their aura shattered, Cinder got distracted by Vernal then Raven pushed her shit in. Cinder is dead and her not being dead would be a direct retcon of what we've seen happen with our own two eyes.

No. Tyrian could block bullets with his tail when he was paying attention, and then got his tail cut off when he was caught off-guard by Ruby's attack with no active aura defense. Just like Qrow was. Just like Sienna. Just like Hazel, Just like Blake. Neither of their auras shattered.

Aura breaking has a very, very clear look and sound. It shimmering is just a sign of it absorbing damage or being weakened.

Cinder is not dead, and please don't throw around "retcon" when you clearly don't even understand the mechanics you're talking about. Not to mention that aura doesn't even matter here, because maiden powers work without it. What you saw with your own two eyes is, to anyone that isn't a child or has seen a decent amount of media, a really obvious setup for a return. There is a reason that, out of all of the deaths that have happened so far, Cinder's "death" involves her being slightly disabled and then vanishing from sight. There is a reason they went through the trouble of freezing her and then, instead of just shattering her, threw her into the unknown..

Are you the kind of person who saw LotR and thought Aragorn really died when he got tied to a Worg and pulled off a cliff? The same sort of person who is shocked when, after someone says "There's no way they could have survived that." in a movie, it turns out they actually did?
>>
Where the fuck is this "There's a difference between an aura shattering and just fluctuating!" bullshit people are talking about coming from?
>>
>>2519796
Because RT can't make up their minds. Originally there was no effect, then there was a clear shimmering effect when it broke, and then they started using the same effect when people just take damage. See Tyrian beating Ruby which just causes constant fluctuations without breaking their Aura.
In Cinder vs Raven, I thought it was obvious that the Auras broke. They weren't taking any hits at the moment so there was no reason for it to just "fluctuate."
>>
>>2519847
Right, yeah. Okay. People being retarded, then.

V1-2 makes sense, I suppose for the tech not being there to properly show it yet, depending on how forgiving you want to be, but after that, we've had clear representation of Aura breaking since then except once.

Mercury, and Pyrrha. Tyrian and Qrow, Nora (and I think, Ren too? I don't remember if his Aura actually broke during the nuck fight.) Weiss and now Raven and Cinder.

The only odd case here is Ruby when Tyrian was beating on her.

>With aura gone you can be mortally wounded. Raven literally froze her solid and knocked her off a cliff.
They key word here, if she didn't have any aura (which she does) is that you CAN be mortally wounded, and Cinder hasn't. Also, holy shit it is literally the exact same fucking frost effect that was on Raven. The only ding dong here is you for falling for such a common, overplayed trope. I'm starting to see how there are now people in these threads that think RWBY is actually a good show with well thought out writing.

In the recent RWBYRW they clarified that there is a difference. Breaking is more of a full-body affair with some sort of "expanding out" type of effect.

I'd just like to remind everyone that Cinder had her fingers inside Vernal.

>>2522036
Cinder also had her pointy thing inside Pyrrha and Weiss.

She also penetrated Amber twice against her will.

She also got Ruby to flash her.

Yes. Cinder is RWBY's cuckmaster.

I feel like Emerald is the biggest cuck since she's just watching as Cinder goes around stealing everyone's maidenhood.

It was well, well below "eh".

>Adam got away by jogging between some bushes.
>Yang literally just convinced Salem to give up power from the gods by telling her Salem would be after her, when Salem being after her is the whole reason she wanted the power in the first place.
>Emerald, Merc and Hazel somehow went from completely dominating the good guys with Hazel able to fight by himself vs Ozcar, Nora, Ren and Qrow, with Ren and Nora barely holding on and Ozcar running out of energy, to them losing and giving up. OFF-SCREEN.
>Emerald disables everyone in the room, but they don't just grab the relic on their way running past everyone
>Raven just leaves Vernal's body lying in the vault

I'm not even a BBfag but holy shit that reunion between Yang and Blake

>hey what are you doing here?

The reunion was awkward as hell for them and I think they conveyed that fairly realistically. It's frustrating that nothing really got resolved but I don't think it was out of character.
>>
>>2523430
>>2523581
What's lacking is the follow up, where Yang and Blake talk to each other alone. Not immediately after the battle But then again M&K are fucking terrible writers and this is just further cementing the evidence that they're fucking terrible compounded by everything that happened this episode.

Anyone have a link for the big let down (finale)?

I'm basically in the same boat. Was a very eh finale. I'll take it though.

Having RWBY together again does make me look forward to 6 at least.

Ok

Who was best girl this season
>>
>>2523695
Yang was best girl, followed by Weiss, followed by Nora
Blake was worst girl
Raven was best maiden. She also has the ZR.

Then i have to rewatch the scene to regain my focus

I feel like the last two episodes were the wrong way round in some places, the budget fight was cool but now it's just the thing that contrasts the conclusion instead of being part of it. Everything just felt a bit too neat, if that makes sense.

I'm not opposed to the good guys pulling off a big win but there was nothing to raise the stakes after all that was said and done, it's a complete technical knockout. Moreover there was quite a few questionable choices, like regulating so much of the fighting off-screen and team MEH only using the total paralysis of Emerald's big illusion to escape when they could have grabbed the Relic or the Rube and booked it.

It was all just very not hype I guess, there was a smattering of reasonable moments but nothing got me very excited. They really need someone to manage them properly, the spirit of Monty can't serve as show runner.

Oh well into the glorious hiatus hand-in-hand, what are our hopes and fears for Volume 6?
Who's more gay, Emerald or Weiss?
Will we ever find out what happened to the moon?
>>
Will rwby ever get competent writers? It's long due for them to realize that their current writers can't carry the show and are diminishing its potential
>>
>>2523695
Emerald. And then probably Cinder and Ilia. Yang was easily the worst, Ruby and Weiss did very little, and Blake was just Blake still.
>>
>>2523721
>the spirit of Monty can't serve as show runner
Good, because he was actually even worse at running things and writing than M&K when it came to everything but animating fights.

>Who's more gay, Emerald or Weiss?
The one who is actually probably gay and not just a dumb meme.
>>
>No one on /u/ is talking about this cutie lusting after chameleon puss.
For shame /u/.
>>
>>2523784
She was cute and the scene was pretty gay. It's just highly questionable if she will ever show up again.

Now wait a minute.
Though after all the retarded shit that Raven pulled this season, maybe she deserves the title of being the worst more.
>>
>>2523860
Yang is shit. I will never understand why people like her. She had the potential to actually become decent in V4 but then immediately went back to being a cunt in V5.

Can't believe I'm starting to miss the fucking prom arc, at least it was an entertaining kind of bad instead of a "is this really what the whole season was building up to?" kind of meh disappointment. I think Cinder_running_on_the_rooftop.webm evoked more emotions from me than 80% of the final episode.

>>2523864
>a cunt
Are you referring to her "hurr I'm angry" mode spontaneously turning on or something else?
>>
>>2523865
>Are you referring to her "hurr I'm angry" mode spontaneously turning on or something else?
I'm referring to her still somehow being an overconfident ass who will rage punch complete strangers that annoy her and pick fights even though she continually loses against people.

Which is already bad enough without the obnoxious victim complex she has.
>>
>>2523870
>she continually loses against people
>won all fights that she picked against random strangers
visible_confusion.bmp
>>
>>2523876
She would have died twice at the hands of random strangers if not for other people stepping in to save her while unconscious. And she also lost her 1v1 fights against both Neon and Arslan.
>>
>>2523910
Not that anon, but those are all pre-fall of beacon examples which have been addressed as a character flaw.
I think the other anon was wanting examples from volume 5.
>>
>>2523919
That was my point though. It looked like she was going to improve in V4 and develop beyond her character flaws.

But then in volume 5 she still has the shitty "I'm Yang I can take on anyone, even strangers I know nothing about, no problem" attitude despite being consistently out-fought pre-fall of beacon, and despite the fact that the last time she just jumped into a fight with a complete stranger she lost an arm, was nearly killed, and was traumatized for months afterwards.

But if you want Volume 5 specific examples, she was losing for a large amount of time against Merc and Em, and then was confident enough to just fucking jog past both of them even though it was clearly shown in the tournament, Pyrrha and Ruby fights that Merc is extremely quick with very fast reaction time. And confident enough that she thought she could just go down into a room where two maidens and her mother (all of whom she thought were on the enemy side) were retrieving a relic, and stop them.
>>
Will Ruby cheer Yang up with lots of cuddling and kissing after Raven turned out to be a cowardly bitch who'd rather throw her daughter to the wolves than stay around and help?
>>
>>2523742
Miles is a shitty sel-insert writing fuck and Kerry must be high on crack. The story and show seem to have no passion anymore. Those last few episodes bar the passable Cinder Raven fight is proof of that; they cut out all the hyped up fights and spent a majority of the Volume doing absolutely nothing. GG rooster teeth, good luck with your upcoming shows
>>
>>2523949
Apparently they had way more budget this volume but I can't for the life of me figure out where it went.

Did they really blow it all on the maiden fight?
>>
>>2523983
They blew it on cocaine and hookers.
>>
>>2523983
Budget does shit all when you give your lazy main crew the money and hire based on who is friends with who rather than who can actually do a job.

Bad VAs and shit writers getting a raise doesn't make up for being too cheap to hire a music maker who isn't a failed composer turned rock musician, choreographer, decent animators, actual concept artists, etc.
>>
These threads are feeling more like /a/ or /co/ these days, what the hell happened to the people gushing about anything close to yuri?
>>
>>2524115
I think they've kind of gotten a lot closer to each other these days. /u/ feels a lot more critical in some ways than they used to, where as /co/ has gotten a lot gayer.

I'm gonna go and play devils advocate here and say I hope if M and K learn anything from this volume, it's that they need to make sure the animators can actually keep up with the ideas they write.
The finale battle with everyone fighting everyone was a cool idea but without Monty, no matter how much budget they threw at it, there's just no way they could avoid pushing some of these fights off screen.

Cause honestly, except for the Blake stuff, I had no problem with the writing this volume. It's all animation stuff that I had a problem with.
>>
>>2524218
Correction:
except for the Blake stuff AND the Raven/Yang talk in chapter 6, I had no problem with the writing this volume.
>>
I stopped watching this around episode 2 of the new season

Did it get better? Did we get any more /u/-teasing (full /u/ is too much to expect)? Did the fights improve?
>>
>>2524243
>Did the fights improve?
Most fights in the last episodes were offscreen
>>
>>2524115

I suspect o/u/r patience for RT's brand of aggressive mediocrity is wearing thin.
>>
>>2523985
can't fault them on that
>>
>>2524218
There's also the problem of them trying to up their own game in every volume without getting the basics down or having a good solid foundation of anything. Throwing more characters, more locations, more technology/magic at the show doesn't make it better. I'd rather have a small scale well executed storyline first before getting involved in international conflict family relations destiny of the world bullshit
>>
>>2524325
You really could cut 40% of the cast and it would improve the show beyond reason.
