Is RWBY dying? The fics I've written for it (over several years) have been getting exponentially fewer and fewer views.

I dropped at start of this season
>>
>>2531712
The show quality peaked two years ago and even that was a pretty low peak. Of the four biggest fandom pairings, one is dead and buried, one is irrelevant, one in a coma and unlikely to ever return, and the last is shit and in a continual state of not existing or being drawn out.
>>
>>2531712
>>2531722
Eh, I thought that the V5 finale, while having a fair number of issues, was still mostly solid. It at least gave me a shred of hope for V6.

Of course that could just be their plan; provide juuuuust enough to make me think "well, that was alright, I wonder if they'll go somewhere with this" to get me to keep watching, but never actually give any satisfying pay-off. And I'm not just talking ships, but the content of the show in general.
>>
>>2531738
>well, that was alright, I wonder if they'll go somewhere with this
this was the feeling literally since the first episode - actually before that, even during trailers. RWBY never, ever delivers

it had good fights with monty, but even thats gone

I'm just amazed at the progression of views on my fics.

>Dec 2015: 23k views
>Nov 2016: 161 views
>Jan 2018: 111 views

Same story type (<2k word one-shot). Last one is a bit of a stretch since I just wrote it, but the sheer decrease between 2015-2016 is staggering. Is this just me, just the fandom, or is the community dying as a whole?
>>
>>2531748
No offense to you, it's great that you were inspired enough to write something for it, but I just have absolutely no interest whatsoever in reading RWBY fanfiction. Because honestly the few I'd looked in to ages ago were... bad, plainly put.
>>
>>2531751
I'm glad you told us about your fanfiction preferences, but this has literally nothing to do with you. It has to do with the community as a whole. There has to be a reason for the precipitous drop in views between 2015-2016.
>>
>>2531753
Sorry, kind of missed making my actual point. I was just pondering if I'm not far from alone in my preference; that the fandom at large just isn't that into fanfiction. If they don't prefer just waiting on the canon stories rather than what fans cook up.

Or maybe, given how RWBY's greatest strengths lie in its aesthetics, they don't simply prefer the visual medium. Fan/art/ production and consumption certainly seems alive and well.
>>
>>2531759
clearly the fandom at one point cared about fanfiction
>>
>>2531761
It might be partially because of the setting. Volumes 1 and 2 were fanfic bait with a wide open unexplored world, a flexible school setting and some nebulous Big Bad lurking behind it all. When RT started actually exploring the setting and moved away from highschool hijinks, the potential for fics also dropped.
>>
>>2531774
I'm not buying it. Interest in fanfiction doesn't decrease; if anything, interest tends to increase with time. I think it's more likely people finally realized how shitty the show is and finally stopped. Alas, maybe some more hard-working soul will tally up for us the episode views from S1 to now.
>>

>>2531753
>>2531759
>>2531761
This anon got it. >>2531774
Once the story started getting more concrete it makes it harder to find room to write fan-fics.
Hell, I have yet to find a fan-fic I really like that's set after the Fall of Beacon.
I think there will be pretty sparse interest until the show is over, and that's when people will start going back and filling in the gaps.

Also, if RWBY has a shit and/or controversial ending (see ME3 and the new Star Wars), interest in writing and reading fanfics will also increase.
>>
>>2531828
I don't believe it because that's not why I wrote fanfiction. The world of RWBY has always been shit - the scope of the story always centered around Beacon, likely because the writers couldn't do worldbuilding, and it was impossible to become interested in the world early on simply because there was NOTHING to go. You knew that other countries/schools existed - that's it. Fanfiction requires a certain amount of content to be present in order to expand on it, and early on, the world was nothing. I actually think worldbuilding has IMPROVED (thus giving more fic fodder) now that the rest of the world's brought into the picture.

The writing in RWBY has also gotten better, so I don't buy that explanation either. I mean, RWBY's writing is still shit, but it's leagues ahead of S1/S2.
>>
>>
>>
>>2531841
Fair enough.
I guess there could be any number of reasons.
I know it's not a matter of decreasing popularity since RWBY's viewership has only been going up since Vol 3.
>>
>>2531753
The show is shit and the longer it goes on the more people realize it is a bad attempt at a bad anime genre. What else do you want?

>>2531738
No finale where 90% of the "fights" are people standing around waiting is "mostly solid".
>>
>>2531907
Crazy as it is, I stopped watching RWBY just for the fights a while ago, and actually am invested in the plot and characters. So while it was a massive missed opportunity basically just skipping over most of RWB vs HME, stuff like Yang tearing into Raven or RWBY's full reunion were really nicely done, imo.
>>
>>2531712
It started as a plucky little project
It got resources
It didn't get better and people realized it.

Vol 4 was rough but excuses could still be made about the change in writing styles, lack of staff, maya hiccups. vol 5 killed rwby in japan. It's a sick joke in the west. They've peaked, everyone knows it, and the end result is sad.

>>2531738
Nope. They simply don't have the experience they should have before running this and they definitely don't have the experience for running a drama let alone coping with the utter clusterfuck that is working on the other RT shows, their lack of staff, staff assignments competing with other projects, and preproduction time compounding a retarded broadcast schedule. Instead of delaying the show or actually getting enough animators, they irreparably annihilated the integrity of the show with how hard they stretched their animators over vol 5. The script needed a lot more editing. Between trying to cut every animation corner they could and leaving a bunch of agonizing plot holes they didn't have a show left.

> stuff like Yang tearing into Raven or RWBY's full reunion were really nicely done
It was completely fucking retarded that after an entire lifetime of living the way she's lived and not listening to the brother she grew up with, the daughter she's met like twice somehow convinced her to give up the power of the fucking gods because "What if salem comes after you!?!" when the whole god damn point of Raven's plan to betray Cinder was that she knew Salem was never going to stop going after her, and the only way to take her on would be not giving away the power of the gods.

>I'm pretty sure I just killed Salem's right hand pawn and her key to the other relic, but I'm sure I'll be fine if I give this daughter I don't give a shit about the ultimate power I was going to use to protect myself.

RWBY reunion was just as bad. Months apart and it literally amounted to "Oh, hey, what are you doing here?" "Haha, I was going to ask you that!"

Cinder's character did a complete 180, the entire plot of the last two episodes was nonsense and full of holes. How can you be watching this show for what is undoubtedly the shittiest part of it?

>vol 5 killed rwby in japan

They aren't shiteaters that make excuses for abortions. They better than anyone know a turd anime. Despite having more resources than ever, the volume quality has gotten even worse. It was understandable and cute when it was monty and five other weebs but that's far from the case anymore and they've given up.
>>
>>2531928
Not even just that, but she's still a maiden. Even without a macguffin nuke, like they showed everyone, a maiden can still just maintain a thunderstorm over a kingdom and reduce it to ashes and rubble. Not only giving the relic up but fucking off was so backwards. She still doesn't have the power to protect herself, she gave the league of evil a black eye, and she's still a very valuable piece on the board to be taken at any opportunity. For Salem who apparently made it out of the great war despite Ozpin having two entire mobilized kingdoms at his disposal, Raven's still a whim away from getting fucked. Just everything with her tribe and raven herself this volume has been so backwards.

The point of it was that Raven's a coward and that when given the choice between "Power up and fight eventually" or "Pawn the power off on someone else and let them be a target", she chose the latter.
>>
>>2531944
Nobody forced Raven to pursue the relic. She had a target on her back because she was a Maiden, and she decided to cover herself in brightly flashing LED lights to become completely unmissable by trying to get the relic and fucking over Salem's goons. Giving the relic to Yang didn't remove those lights not the target; she still is a Maiden, she still fucked over another Maiden, she still defied Salem and her merry band of edgelords.
>>
>>2531944
I'd say the problem is that Raven will still have to fight eventually regardless. As a maiden she's a target (though presumably a less important target than the Summer and Winter maidens for now); either Cinder will crawl out of that pit and tell Salem she's the spring maiden, or Cinder will be MIA for a while and the bad guys will assume Raven killed her thus making her the main suspect for the fall maiden powers
>>
>>2531944
No. The point of it was shitty writing because she knows she just spat in Salem's face and screwed her over. And she knows that Salem is entirely capable of tracking her down, so how the fuck, in any world, does it make sense for her to just hand off the LITERAL power of the gods, that was her only bargaining chip or defense against Salem's forces.

When you steal a bunch of guns from a cartel boss, and kill someone they liked, and your choices are now:
A) Run and use the guns to arm and protect yourself or
B) Give all the guns to some school children who want to fight the cartel, because surely the cartel leader thinks fair is fair and wont bother you now that you gave away the guns

You don't choose B. No one does.
>>
>>2531945
>>2531948
Salem doesn't give a shit about Maidens beyond them being the keys to the Relics. She just wants the fucking Relics. Now that Raven unlocked hers, that she's the Spring Maiden is irrelevant, as Yang is the one who has what she wants. And the only reason she gives a shit about Cinder is, again, getting another Relic.

Yeah, I'm sure there's no way Raven will be on Salem's shitlsit after she HANDED A RELIC TO OZPIN and probably crippled Salem's maiden. Are you retarded? Raven severely fucked over her plans. All giving the relic to Oz's group did is remove any chance she had of being able to protect herself from Salem, and firmly establish that she was Salem's enemy. She is so much worse off now than she would have been if she had just ran with the relic. If she was going to give up the relic to redirect Salem's anger, she should have given it to Hazel, not Yang.

Yeah, only a stellar development in V6 could possibly save this series, but because this has zero chance of actually happening I think the series will end there.

>>2531951
If Salem doesn't care about Maidens, and if Raven just wanted Salem to fuck off, Raven would've either just unlocked the relic for Cinder and then teleported outta there or helped Qrow. Yet she, for some reason, wanted to acquire the relic for herself, because something something that's the only way to survive, completely disregarding the fact that having the relic would've made her Salem's #1 target, and she needed Yang to spell that fact out to her.

As in you would have to seriously search to find something that is actually worse in quality than RWBY. As someone who didn't like KLK or SNK, both are completely out of RWBY's league. RWBY is so much worse it shouldn't even be compared.


Imagine for a moment that KLK, SNK, or a show like SAO are Momoiro Clover Z.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIokp4MonxE

Momoiro Clover Z aren't, by any stretch, particularly good. It's generic, overproduced idol jpop crap that weebs eat up. But it's also still of decent general quality.

This is RWBY:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbMRIWXhjGw

An incredibly badly done attempt at a similar genre to those shows--except that instead of being 5 teenage girls, RWBY is a show produced by a company with hundreds of employees by a crew being paid a real salary to produce it. Which is why, as anon said >>2531936

Your taste being terrible doesn't mean that RWBY holds a candle to the two anime you just mention, you know.

I would give it some points for the world building and fight choreo, but too bad now that Monty had passed they have gone to shit too.

Only problem with RWBY was that V4 and V5 are intentionally filler, which is only an issue because the wait for each volume to release. Content wise if they had just combined those two in some sort of abridged from it would have been much easier to take. (V5 had a lot of 11 minute episodes again, that only a fraction offered meaningful content).


I think V7 will be the finale. 6 will be the dissolution of Salem's generals, and figure out where Fall's powers went and who the other two maidens are. 7 Will just be the battle against Salem and Ruby harnessing her full powers.
>>
>>2533286
It's not even with it being intentionally filler. You can do filler well. The problem were the plot holes which were a clear result of a lack of editing the script before production even starts and many. many, many scenes were it was crystal clear that they mangled the F U C K out of the show to suck animators off for this or that instead of just announcing a delay or doing a biweekly release. It's been five fucking years of this, it's not some new twilight zone incident. It's just stupidity, arrogance and neglect. Which is a real damn shame, because Monty gave them a great world to do shows in until the end of time and they're fucking ruining that.

It's not a headcanon. It's the artist just using artistic license to set up a cute team moment.

What the other anon is trying to say but failing to communicate properly is that head-canon is different than non-canon.
Head-canon is where you believe something in the show to be true because there isn't anything in the show to disprove this belief.
Example:
Thinking Yang has gay feelings for Blake because of webm related, regardless of how much we want that to be true, is head canon because it could be true but there isn't enough evidence to 100% confirm or deny it.
Non-canon is just something that's not possibly the case in the actual canon. An AU, or just silly artistic liberty.

Hope that made it clear so you 2 can stop shitting up the already shitty thread.

Ded. Between knowing they can't write romance for shit, not having the time for it in an already overcompressed plot in midget episodes, fear of "pulling a korra" and embracing their kid audience it's not gonna happen either. At least we're still getting a trickle of cute stuff to base fanart and fanfics off of.
>>
>>2533640
It's generic pop romance shit that hast little to no connection to the characters themselves because it's just generic pop romance shit.

More generally:
Like the rest of Jeff's stuff, it's lackluster in composition and instrumentation and Casey's singing is, as always, nothing special at the best parts, and grating most of the rest of the time.

This smells like a /co/ runoff bait-post but if you're not, are you serious?
Appealing to the kid audience is literally what Chibi is for.

>>2533653
There's still a smidge of hope for BB given this scene>>2533599 but honestly I'm putting money down that RT pussies out and doesn't make BB or BlackSun canon so as not to piss off one group of shippers or another.
Emerald/Cinder (i'm never sure what I should call this to ensure people know what i'm talking about) is pretty strong considering Emerald's reaction to thinking Cinder is dead.
Outside of that, all /u/ ships of old are dead.

You know what is sad, that is not an exaggeration, there are movies that get banned or rated as inappropriate just for having a Gay character inluso if the story is appropriate for all public.
>>
>>2533943
I assume this is asking why other ships are dead.
It's nothing new. There's just no developments with anything. White Rose is never gonna happen because RT refuses to lewd the Rube (which I get).
Any other ship other than the ones I mentioned, and the dark horse that is freezerburn don't really have anything going for them.
I mean there's Ilia, the actual only canon Gay so far.
>>
>>2533974
Yeah but they already included a gay character so this argument that they wouldn't do it in order to make it kid friendly is just dumb.
>>
>>2533971
>Thinking RT gives a shit about what shippers think
>RWBY is their actual job.
These are not contradictory statements.
Not committing to either ship allows them to let ravenous ship wars continue which has the side effect of promoting brand awareness.
I'm not even meming. I actually first discovered Star vs. the Forces of Evil because of the ship wars on /co/.

Even if they make one canon, it won't be until the last or second to last volume.

Because Neo was never a prominent villain, and they needed to introduce higher stakes in order to move away from Beacon. Granted, "higher stakes" didn't have to mean "literally undefeatable evil that can also summon Grimm thingies", and I do think they jumped the gun a bit, going from high school prom drama and tournaments to holy shit our teammate is dead and Salem wants to destroy the world or something, but then again, it's clear they didn't have any ideas on how to make the transition smoother.
Neo's purpose died when CRME stopped being a bunch of goofy memeable villains who fucked around with teenagers and stole lots of Dust for questionable reasons. Unless she joins the good guys to avenge Roman or something, but I doubt it.
>>
>>2540126
Neo was an ad hoc addition by Monty at the literal last minute, while WTCH have been planned since before V1. Shifting gears after years of planning just because one character got the Boba Fett treatment would likely be a bad idea.

Is Miles really trying to convince people that Jaune isn't his shitty self-insert?

Jaune literally doesn't need to exist. Ruby is young, naive and inexperienced, and is kind of the 'dumb shonen protag', so she could have been the one that needed everything explained for the sake of exposition. Actually you can take out all of team JNPR. Penny could have done the whole maiden thing instead of Pyrrah. Even though I like Ren and Nora, they contribute literally nothing.
>>
>>2543023
>Jaune literally doesn't need to exist.
Welcome to "half the things Monty decided to add to the show on a whim". See also maidens, Neo, and Penny.

Also yeah Kerry answered that question saying Miles has been bullied into just not writing Jaune into any scenes unless absolutely necessary and it was always Kerry and Monty writing Jaune into scenes early on.

Hell, it sounds like Miles just wishes he didn't voice him at all.
>>
>>2543141
It’s not that I dislike Jaune, I just feel like he’s had more character development then Ruby has in the entire series.
And he’s not even the main character. I get that they’re all friends and all the outcast want to stick together which is fine, Nora and Ren have nowhere to go so they figured they might as well help Ruby, and Jaune wants revenge for Pyrrha.
Other then the “Silver eyes” which is obviously important to the plot; Tai could sit down and have a heart to heart about Summer with her and give some depth to Ruby, other then being a hyper toddler who likes cookies.

They could seriously explain what happened to Neo, if she’s dead, if Ironwood’s secretly repairing or making a new Penny or missing her— Just dropping little things like that here and there make stuff better.
>>
>>2543279
I maintain that the series would've been better off if Ruby and Jaune had been combined into one character.
>>
>>2543279
>I just feel like he’s had more character development then Ruby has in the entire series
That is explicitly why I dislike him. Also he's a walking talking plothole that grows up wanting to be a hunter but knows nothing about them or their superpowers.
>>
>>2543279
>I just feel like he’s had more character development then Ruby has in the entire series.

Its confirmed that RWBY is going to be a 10-12 volume Series.

So you just know that Ruby is going to have an entire volume to herself to help tie up loose ends and its going to be volume 9, a LOOONG time from now.
>>
>>2543472
>Vol 9
I think you mean vol 11
>>
>>2543472
Having to wait three additional volumes for character development with the actual character development probably going to be disappointing based off the other "character development we seen."

Maybe they could just have actually started developing her character during the last two volumes like everybody wanted.

I'm just upset that ruby was set up to be the main character in volume 1 but hasn't gotten any character development since then. The only effect she's had on the story is being a deus ex machina in volume 3. The only way I'll ever be ok with the lack of development is if they're trying to hide something about ruby but I doubt it. I'm just upset cause she's my favorite but I also hate her as she is now.
