No.
Winter likes older women anyway, and is going to fuck Glynda when she takes over as Atlas' General.

How nice of Blake to help Yang re-hydrate after their workout. What good friends! https://twitter.com/MinaCreamu/status/1116076075195478016

What is this expression conveying?
>>
>>2861092
Weiss being ready to spread her legs for her sister.
>>
>>2861044
Glynda hasn’t been relevant in ages. I don’t know if it’s because her VA got the boot or if they just don’t know what to do with her. She’s part of Ozpin’s inner circle and thus should’ve been mentioned at least once but I have doubts she’s going to appear again even though she references a big part of the Wizard of Oz tale.

ATM is All That Matters. It’d be nice to get a song or something about how Blake feels. Plus all her existing songs are duets—she’s never had a solo one.
>>
>>2861468
Oh okay
>>
>>2861062
she also helped her strip to cool down.
>>
>>2861468
“Wings” is technically a Blake song, but she’s being sung to rather than singing it. They never specified who the singer was though.
>>
>>2861675
People used to say Weiss, but now there's something of a movement that it's actually Yang because All That Matters contains a lyrical reference to it, and I think I remember reading that some BB moment or another had BGM derived from Wings?
>>
>>2861759
See, I used to think it was Weiss too, because it played during the resolution of that arc, but after sitting down to think about it after several years, it doesn’t really make sense for it to be her. That’s not to say it’s impossible because it’s left open to interpretation, but there isn’t much evidence to suggest it being Weiss.

1. The tone of the song is very nurturing, with the singer being very sympathetic and understanding/reassuring to Blake. V1 Weiss does not behave like that, even in its finale. She’s still frosty and uptight, and what she actually says to Blake is “I don’t care! I don’t want to hear it.” That’s pretty dismissive, even if she means well, but it’s not exactly in-tune with the mood of the song. Yang didn’t receive much characterization until V2, but she was established as a very caring person beforehand (see: “Gold”).
2. The singer mentions searching for 12 hours, and Weiss does explicitly say that, but Yang was with her the entire time, also looking for Blake. Yang also told Weiss to listen to Blake’s side of the story first before jumping to conclusions.
3. An instrumental version of Wings plays when Blake and Yang first see each other again in V5 before Ruby shouts at Yang to run for the vault.
4. All That Matters is a Yang song that has the lyrics “thought I could pull you from the shadows / maybe help you find your wings and fly”. That references two Blake songs right there.

So just based on those points alone, it seems unlikely Weiss is the one singing. But for all we know, it could simply be a RWY -> B song.
>>
>>2861882
>“I don’t care! I don’t want to hear it.”
Don't be obtuse. She says she doesn't care about or want to hear about Blake's past mistakes.
>>
>>2862073
Sorry if it came across that way. I just thought the way she delivered it was quite rough, interrupting Blake like that.
>>
>>2862218
that's just season 1 writing i mean look at ruby's "encouraging" talk with jaune when he's getting bullied

>>
>>2860967
>>no RWBYg thread on /co/ chimping out over it
Don't mods move all /co/ RWBY threads to /trash/?
>>
>>2862320
I guess. But Ruby’s a weirdo who’s not that good with people so that exchange is a bit more believable. Weiss curtly handwaving is heartwarming in its own way if you take into consideration her character, but in the context of her supposedly singing Wings at the end of V1, it’s less sensible.

The tenderness would probably make more sense if it was V5+ Weiss singing, since she didn’t really openly become Nice Queen until around that time.
>>
>>2862336
Occasional RWBY threads are allowed.
/RWBYg/is banished to /trash/
But really all threads on /co/ are stealth RWBYg threads.
>>
>>2862373
>/RWBYg/is banished to /trash/
What? What was the reasoning behind that decision?
>>
>>2862383
It’s just the policy /co/ took for some reason.
Any show not currently airing gets their general thread kicked to /trash/. Steven Universe, Loudhouse, RWBY, etc.
>>
>>2862383
Because much like these threads, there's rarely anything of value between seasons and it's mostly people saying the same shit over and over, and because morons don't understand how to not post NSFW on a SFW board.
>>
>>2862383
It's also a fairly crowded board. Not the most crowded by a long shot by over here where it can take literal months for a non-general thread to die, the thread lifespan over there might as well be capped to a single day. If every mediocre show with a fandom of dozens got their own thread there wouldn't be space for much else. There really should just be a /cg/ really.
>>
>>2862383
/rwbyg/ gets weird and shitposty and fetishy when not in season and when it's not shitposts, it's people having the same half dozen debates over and over.
>>
>>2862383
Because rwby is literally trash outside of waifus and inspiring fanworks. And we all know how the incels of /co/ are scared of the lesbian bvlls stealing all of their 2d waifus. Also rwby has furries.

Are there any good fanfics where characters AREN'T socially retarded autistic parody of a human/faunus bean who blush like a red dwarf and practically forget how to socially interact with another person at the slightest tactile contact/shared stare with them? It's not cute. it's fucking stupid and i wish """"people"""" would finally put that walking corpse of a trope to it's long deserved rest.

There are no good RWBY fanfics. Either they're written by autists who use anime as a basis for social interaction or they're constantly angry butch dykes

So Arryn posted on Instagram/Twitter something happening that reminds her of what’s in the V7 script that she thinks is cute. Then she posted dancing emojis. It’s not strictly bee-related but the most popular theories are either Blake (or another girl) getting a haircut or there’s an actual goddamn Atlas dance after all the fandom’s wishful thinking.
>>
>>2865227
Come on now.
>>
>>2865227
How does this even happen on this board anymore?
>>
>>2865192
I think it's a haircut. I'm betting on Yang since out of Team RWBY her cutting her hair would have the most impact.
>>
>>2865390
Yang feels like the least likely to get hers cut. I personally think it’d be Weiss. Yang’s hair isn’t really that important other than she’s protective of it, but Weiss’s side ponytail is an act of passive rebellion against her father. If she ends up cutting it too, that’d be more symbolic.

On the other hand, there’s somewhat of an anime trope where a girl gets a haircut after ending a relationship in order to start a new chapter of her life, so that could also work for Blake.
>>
>>2865404
>Yang’s hair isn’t really that important other than she’s protective of it
Yeah but look at it this way: When Yang first met Blake she went ballistic over getting a a strand of hair pulled out. Yang cutting her hair would show growth. Your points about Weiss and Blake are valid but I still think Yang is more likely to get the character development haircut.
>>
>>2865407
I think it would be a rather cheap way of showing growth. "I used to love my long hair! But now after being crippled and finding love, I no longer care!"

>Ruby and Weiss as fatsos
Why
>>
>>2865601
How are they remotely fat? Ruby is still flat and her stomach isn't close to passing her breast. And Weiss seems to be the same as far as you can tell from this angle.
>>
>>2865603
Ruby is clearly fat (look how thick her arms and torso are) and Weiss gives the same impression from how thick her hands are.
>>
>>2865606
We get it anon, you like skeletons but halloween ain't year around.
>>
>>2865614
Fat girls just aren't pretty. That's why Monty Oum didn't make Ruby and Weiss fatties.
>>
>>2865627
it's true
>>
>>2865606
it's just bad anatomy
>>
>>2865642
This.
Whoever the artist was just made Ruby’s left arm too thick compared to the rest of her.
>>
>>2865601
That's cause the artist chose to draw them closer to normal human beings with more realistic bodies. If you honestly thought that RWBY character models for girls are representative of real humans then you should lay off the anime cause you're clearly forgetting how people in real life actually look.

>>2865627
>Fat girls just aren't pretty.

Eh, i don't know about that, m8. It depends on what women in particular you're talking about, they come in all shapes and sizes. Having said that, from where i stand they aren't even remotely "on a heavier side". Not that there's anything wrong with the "heavier side", of course. Especially if that means muscles, if you catch my drift

The Faunus and their fight for equality is an allegory for minorities and tumblr is very Amero-centric, meaning the biggest case of civil rights movement people usually think of is African Americans.

So give it to me straight, lesbians: is it worth the time to actually watch RWBY? I've never watched the show because I always thought poorly of it for the odd 3D style and the janky looking animations (plus from what I've heard the narrative is kind of a silly mess overall), but I like a few of the characters by design alone and I watched a few videos on the strengths and weaknesses of the show's design themes and writing and it got me interested. I've always been skeptical of its quality but is it worth diving into the ~20 hours worth of 79 episodes or should I just stick to fanart and save my time? I'm sure this gets asked every thread, sorry.
And as I understand, Neo just fucks off early on and never returns which is a shame because she's my favorite by design alone. Cute as a button.
>>
>>2867055
Obviously I'm biased, but I'm fucking obsessed with this show. Love it to bits. I do honestly think the show is getting better as it goes, but there are definitely a lot of rough points; especially early-on, but in the more recent material still. I wouldn't quite call the overarching narrative a "silly mess", but I'd say it suffers from pacing issues. Lotta stopping, starting, time-skipping around. The characters are definitely my favorite part of the whole thing.
Neo was originally just present in a couple brief scenes in V2 and 3, and was subsequently absent in 4 and 5. She returned in 6, and is set to be a major player in 7.
>>
>>2867055
I personally refuse to watch past volume 2 because of the male love interests that get introduced. Just my two cents. Most of the fun of RWBY is in the fanworks anyway.

Are they still around and involved with the girls? Lack of relationship development is not enough for me, I need them to be rejected and not teased as possible future romantic partners.

Neptune got pretty much canned on screen, Sun got definitely cucked in favor of a girlfriend and Jaune, well, is preoccupied for the foreseeable future.

What if any possible male love interests are implied to become a thing currently?
>>
>>2867103
>>2867106
Iceberg (Weiss/Neptune) is 100% dead. Brought him back after 2 volume's absence, didn't have him anywhere near Weiss, and half the reason he was there was for a joke where he tries hitting on a lesbian.
Other half of the reason he was there was basically to say to the audience that Black Sun (Blake/Sun) was being gently put to rest too. The only way it would happen now is if Blake and Yang literally never interacted for the next several volumes.
White Knight (Weiss/Jaune) got absolutely no development despite a fairly decent setup to do so, so it's basically dead in the water.

The only het ship that still /might/ have a shot (besides Renora which should go without saying) is Lancaster (Ruby/Jaune). And given how V6 reiterated the importance of Pyrrha in his life, even after her death, I'd say that's going to remain firmly platonic.
>>
>>2867105
>>2867114
Well that's interesting. Maybe I'll watch the rest of the episodes then.
>>
>>2867105
I wouldn’t say cucked when Sun himself downplays his own ship and sinks it himself.

>>2867055
I was one of the people who watched it when it began airing, but dropped it since it didn’t feel like it was going anywhere. I picked it up again late last year when I heard good things about the most recent volume, after a disappointing preceding volume. I don’t regret it, the show has vastly improved. The plot itself is nothing spectacular, but the characters are charming. Also two of the main girls are clearly being built up in a romantic direction, so have fun.

One bit of advice: don’t go into this expecting the next sprawling epic like Avatar the Last Airbender. Just think of it as a passion project written by a couple guys who wanted to write a cool story they want to see, and hope other people find enjoyment in it too.

It's bad. At it's best points I would say it is just "alright", never actually good. There are plot holes everywhere, characters frequently do really retarded shit for the sake of plot going in a specific direction. Besides a few supporting characters, the voice acting is bad, particularly the main two teams. The writing is bad (both the overarching storyline and moment to moment dialogue). The pacing is absolutely terrible, though marathoning it reduces that problem somewhat. The animation is really bad on average and pretty decent in some of the fights. The music is fairly subpar but occasionally okay.

I'd say if you're bored and want context for fanworks it might be worth watching, or if you're the sort of person who's fine watching low quality stuff and is still entertained by it. It's basically just a generic shonen show with lower than average everything.

Neo has two scenes in volume 2, a few very quick appearances and one big scene in volume 3, and then is gone until a couple scenes in V6.
>>
>>2867055
I’d say RWBY poor quality is almost one of the selling points. Watch it and maybe in 30 years you’ll get to brag about how you were on the ground floor of the Texan Anime Industry so that’ll be a great meme if it happens.

It’s also just kind of fascinating to watch these morons work out how to make a show.

It’s honestly a pretty short binge. If you have nothing going on you can watch the whole thing in 2-3 days. It’s closer to 10-14 hours of content than 20 hours.
There is definitely /u/ stuff going on here.
There’s a few canon lesbian side characters and two of the main girls are involved in what we can now confidently call a slow burn romantic side-plot but it’s been mostly subtext until this most recent 6th volume.

It's honestly kind of funny how drastically different some of these answers are. I guess that goes to show how divisive the show is. I guess I can at least try watching the first few episodes or the first volume and go from there, I'm not one to drop a show once I I start it but who knows with these opinions on quality. Thanks for the input, sisters.

The selling point has always been the character design and the fight scenes.

I think it's okay if a bit cheesy and rushed due to limited runtime. The manga adaptions are good quality, so you might like those better instead.

It is exactly what was said, the quality starts really bad and gets better as the show progresses, but it is not as you tolerate that more, it actually gets better. They actually have been improving the quality these last few volumes.
>>
>>2867401
It’s just not for everyone.
I’ve always said that if you don’t like Shonen then the chances you’ll like RWBY are low.

If you only care about /u/ content, I’d say it’s worth the watch. It’s better /u/ content than something like Legend of Korra but like Legend of Korra, the /u/ content isn’t the focus.

Give it a watch and come back to tell us what you think. I’m always curious to hear what new viewers think.

They better give her something new to do or kill her, this whole runabout has become somewhat tiresome. They're not going to kill Ruby so she's not going to fulfil her weird revenge obsession. It would be nice to learn even a little more about her, I get that her VA is quite one of the more expensive ones so they might be a bit gun-shy on long stretches of individual screen time but fuck it RWBY's made enough money by now. She's needs a fresh direction though because it's just boring now.


Salem is coming and will probably wreck shit, might get a cool scene of her manhandling a Cinder who's inches away from acquiring Rube revenge. Ruby Retrieval Arc? WR get closer than ever to be torn apart violently? What sweet sorrow that would be.

VAs actually do get payed per line in a lot of cases but this meme that they make certain writing decisions because of VAs being expensive is silly.

VAs, even professional ones are dirt cheap compared to other costs of production.

Speaking as VAs people are currently recording lines for volume 7 and apparently Arryn and Barb are recording in the same studio together for a scene.

Check their twitters--both of them retweeted Kerry who basically said there was a productive day working on Volume 7. They didn't really say it outright, but fans noticed that Arryn took a photo of herself in a studio that isn't the one in LA, so she is/was in Austin. She also captioned a pic with "we're back in the studio baby #rwbyvolume7".

I wonder about that, since Arryn most likely only gets scenes that involve Blake.

Well, given her previous tease, if there's a party in Atlas that Cinder's gonna crash, seems Blake'll be there.

Question is if Cinder and Neo will try and sneak in and intimidate the group amidst the festivities, or just fuck shit up.

It's cheesy (in the best way, in my opinion) and there's a lot to strike against it even if you're not the harshest critic (lots of the writing, the entirety of certain volumes, QUALITY issues) but I think there's a lot of love put into the series - I myself started because I loved Monty Oum and wanted to check it out because it was his passion project. The characters are fun and are a great basis for a lot of better fan art/fic set ups, and there are cool fights, some great music, etc. etc.

All in all, it depends on how much you're going to give it in the "intangibles" department (if we're going to bring sports lingo into this). How much cheese can you handle? How highly do you rate authorial intent vs. actual production results? How willing are you to overlook some of the writing? And so on.
>>
>>2868146
None of those are particularly gay, unless you take Nevermore's "I made a vow". Wish we'd get a WR song eventually. They're the only partner pair who haven't gotten one yet.

It is not about hoping at this point, it is being logical. Weiss is going to have a lot of focus in volume 7, being in atlas, and having her father there and all. I can only imagine Ruby being the support she needs, like reminding her that her team is more of a family to her than her actually family is.
I can only hope that to be a thing, it is the most obvious thing to do.

Bookseller-that-explained-arcs-in-a-prior-thread-anon here. I kept my promise and got an arc of "RWBY: After the Fall". I haven't had the chance to give it a proper read, but I did skim through it to. So here we go. It's aged for 9-11 year olds and it reads very much so. Just like the show it is family friendly for the most part. It does get a little bit dark at times with implications, but nothing graphic. The writing is competent. The prose isn't particularly engaging, but it doesn't get in the way of the story. If you like RWBY, especially if you like CFVY , then you'll probably like the book. It is primarily from Velvet's POV, but the rest of the team gets their time to shine. In particular Coco and Yatsuhashi, but there is quite a lot to learn about Fox even if the story doesn't really seem to focus on him. The story mostly takes place after the fall of Beacon in Vacuo, but flashbacks takes us back to the good 'ol school days where we get better insight into Velvet's bully situation. The focus on faunus discrimination is nice. It doesn't go crazy deep, but we get a clear view into Velvet's perspective and how she deals with it in her day to day life. The character development is solid and the intra-team interactions are enjoyable. They are certainly the highlight of the book. The main story is solid, as is the action, but nothing really out there. It's the classic "heroes must protect the helpless from inevitable destruction" story arc. It feels like a plotline from the show which is how it should be I suppose. It is very RWBY. If you really like RWBY you'll like this book, but otherwise the story isn't really all that engaging. If you're not all that interested in CFVY then I'd probably also skip or at least wait for more reviews to come out. It is paperback only and retails $10
>>
>>2868277
I'll make another post later after giving a proper read if I feel like there is anything else interesting to cover, but all that said...

NOW FOR THE REAL SHIT. SPOILERS PAST THIS LINE FUCKERS (spelling and grammatical errors are common in advance readers, they are usually fixed before release):
There is ship teasing for Coco & Vevlet as well as Yatsuhashi & Velvet. It is fairly even between the two from what I've read so far and none of it is heavy handed. It isn't particularly gay for the most part, but you get some blushing and some other forms of teasing overall. The teasing with Yatsuhashi isn't that bad either. It can easily be read as friendship with the right pair of goggles since he and Velvet are partners and so naturally close.

"If she had had [sic] a choice--which she apparently didn't--she would have chosen Coco Adel. They'd both come to Beacon from Pharos Combat School, so Velvet knew her...sort of. Coco probably had no idea who Velvet was, but Velvet knew all about her. Coco had been popular at their school, breaking performance records--and breaking girls' hearts."

Blake and Yang get drinks together when Velvet runs into them after a nasty confrontation with some assholes. Blake gets a private chat with Velvet and when Yang does a Yang.

I finished volume 1. The four character teaser trailers were a bit rough, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be once I got a few episodes in.
Some of the main voices were a bit iffy at first, like Ruby sounding cute or annoying, but they got better with time even if some side characters and thugs still have poor deliveries sometimes.
The animation quality varies: the fight scenes look good and I'm sure that's partly thanks to fast movements and special effects, but then there's moments like clearly looping idle animations or minor movements that aren't expressed enough, characters running oddly in a way that feels disconnected from the environment (or running up stairs and jerking suddenly when turning), and trying to replicate 2D movements in a way that doesn't quite work. I think the one thing I don't like is when they use 2D drawings, like during the news report or when Ruby goes chibi while talking about weapons, it just feels really out of place. The 2D silhouettes during the Faunus backstory were fine, but using drawings with clearly different styles feels too jarring. The 3D silhouettes take some getting used to but I understand why they did it, both for resources and style, but at least it makes important characters stand out.
The humor is actually good; from silly things that weren't jokes, to visual gags like the anime white-out circle eyes, to actual jokes. I found myself humored more than I expected, so that's a plus at least.
It's not a negative, but I think it's kinda silly that multiple characters propel themselves by shooting their guns around to defy physics. Yang is the most jarring, just because she has shotguns on her gauntlets that don't break her arms.
The story is nice, if basic so far, and I can see it going places.
The opening is also a banger.
Overall it had its rough spots but it was enjoyable, and if it gets better over time then I guess it doesn't hurt to keep watching. Guess this will be a guilty pleasure of mine now.

Monty was known for his love of improbable/impossible fight scenes/powers/weapons/etc. It's part of the charm, at least of his work. If you've never watched anything of his, I'd recommend at least checking out the first few "Dead Fantasy" videos, or his Haloid short, or "Icarus". It'll give you a good taste of what he was into and what his style was, which shows itself mostly in the fight scenes/action scenes in RWBY.

It's also why so many of the fight scenes post-Monty's death didn't come close to the fun, impossible though they might be, exciting battles in the first few seasons.

>Overall it had its rough spots but it was enjoyable, and if it gets better over time then I guess it doesn't hurt to keep watching. Guess this will be a guilty pleasure of mine now.
In any case, welcome nee-san.

You will get to enjoy Yang fighting eventually.
As you can see, it started as a fighting scenes compilation with something that resembled a story. You gonna notice the change to actually trying to have a story as you continue.
>>
>>2868251
More than obvious, it follows something of a natural progression.

Of the four main pairings, Arkos was at the crux of V3. Then Renora in V4. No one relationship was really the focus on V5 (Maybe you could say Yang's in general?) and then V6 saw the climax of Bumblebee's conflict with Adam. Every other main pair has had their turn in the spotlight, so it only makes sense for Ruby/Weiss to be next.
>>
>>2868342
And I can only fantasize how what Weiss shows to seek in any men will be shown in Ruby and she hopelessly falling for her. I mean, she has everything, not looking at her for her status, sympathizing with her hunter wishes, etc... I really want Ruby to turn Weiss gay as fuck.

Was Monty the same person who worked on the fight scenes in the later Red vs Blue seasons? I remember after a certain point they shifted to in-house animations with much more elaborate over-the-top battles, and I can remember some crazy physics-defying stuff they did in a few of those scenes. The fights are fun and it's nice to see how they get creative with things like during the battle with the two giant Grimms, it's just also silly to see Ruby shotgun blast her way onto a rooftop or Yang propelling herself forward when the action calls for her to launch herself away even though shooting didn't budge her before. I guess you can chalk that up to stance and bracing, though.
If nothing else, getting past the first five or so episodes broke my poor judgement on the show from having not seen a lick of it before. It's still definitely got flaws and shortcomings, but it's not as low quality and amateur as I thought and I can see why it gained such a following even if a lot of that following still seems to be teenage Tumblr users.
>>2868339
Considering the number of villains that I've seen across fanworks and related content, I can believe it if the plot gets more involved over time. I can see plenty of influences from anime and the likes so I can kinda guess where things might go from here.
>>
>>2868348
>even if a lot of that following still seems to be teenage Tumblr users
Yeah, a good chunk of fans are on the younger side, but the show was originally made because they wanted something to watch with their kids. It does eventually get a little more mature in regards to certain subjects, but honestly kids who started this are all probably in their late teens or early twenties now.

To help with suspension of disbelief in regards to the crazy physics, in canon (at least in Ruby’s case) she’s supposed to be using gravity dust which results in the ridiculous recoil.
The ammo pack she loads into her gun in the red trailer is specifically gravity dust.
That being said the show is kinda inconsistent cause at the end of the day it’s all about the rule of cool.

Also, yes Monty was the one who animated the fight scene/in house animations in Red vs. Blue seasons 8 - 10.
After season 10 they asked him if he wanted to keep doing RvB stuff or maybe try making his own project, to which the madman went and single handedly animated the entire red trailer as a proof of concept in just 2 weeks.

And here I thought there wouldn't be any potential explosion in the fandom until v7, but it this turns out to have Bumblebee ship teasing then it's obviously going to happen sooner than expected.
>>
>>2868694
Well at least they tried to make some in-universe sense out of it. Either way, I'm fine with rule of cool and I get that it's style over function.
I kinda figured those were done by him, the style seems familiar. That's nice though that he managed to take a passion project in such a short amount of time and turn it into an entire series, spin-offs and all.
>>
>>2868927
It is cool how much success his little passion project got.
But unfortunately Monty wasn’t around to enjoy a good portion of it.

I can’t tell based on how you worded that post but in case you didn’t know, Monty Oum passed away during the production of volume 3. They took a hiatus for a while but eventually decided they would honor his work by continue it and not let it die with him.

This is part of why some people say the fight animation took a hit in volumes 4 and 5 minus some exceptions. Because they were still trying to find their feet after losing Monty who was such a savant at the fight animation stuff. I’d say the most recent volume is a return to form on that front with some fights just as good or better than what Monty did, but it says a lot that it’s taken an entire team of fight animators working together to reach the same level of quality a guy could put out.

You might also notice the character Ren on team JNPR suddenly sounding different because Monty voiced him. He’s now voiced by his brother.

>I’d say the most recent volume is a return to form on that front with some fights just as good or better than what Monty did, but it says a lot that it’s taken an entire team of fight animators working together to reach the same level of quality a guy could put out.
I mean hiring an actual animation director and having people work in sane teams probably contributed a lot.
>>
>>2868971
I knew that Monty had passed, unfortunate that it would happen during the middle of his passion project. I'm starting volume 3 now and I'm guessing that between the first few episodes sounding like tournament arc material from the titles alone and the lengths of all of them that this volume's going to have a lot more combat and a lot more plot building up. If anything, it's admirable that he could do that well with fight scenes on his own if it's taking a full team to match his style and output. Hopefully the quality difference isn't too drastic.

>>2869238
I’d say half the quality of volumes 4 and 5 depend on how much stock you put into fight scenes. If your enjoyment of the series doesn’t depend on them too much, then it’s fine, but the dip is VERY noticeable. Volume 5 is probably the worst it gets, just a forewarning. Really V5 is the weakest volume overall for a multitude of reasons, even if there were a handful of good character scenes I liked in it.

On the plus side, new watchers don’t have to wait weekly for new episodes, so consider yourself lucky that those volumes will be less aggravating to sit through.
>>
>>2869529
I'll say for the discerning /u/ meets /lit/ anon, this book isn't going to offer you much. All teasing is very tame and is not /u/ exclusive. If that's all you're here for you should save the $10 (or whatever money you use over there) and stick to fanfics. If you want more CFVY or more intra-team dynamics in general, with a side of light teasing, then it is overall worth the read.

My friend has been prodding me to watch this for awhile and I finally gave in; I'm in the midst of season 2 and actually am starting to get onto it somewhat.
Though cutting to the chase is there anything that's actually /u/ about it?Or is it just speculation with maybe some bait on the side?
>>
>>2870617
Long story short without specifying, we have:
- one canon lesbian who had/has feelings for one of our leads
- two married women with a child
- two of our leads are being written as a slowburn romance
- a minor side character who was revealed to be a lesbian ladykiller
Besides what I listed, there's a few goggle-able moments between other characters.
>>
>>2870624
Works for me. Especially slowburns.

Keepin my hopes high, sisters. This is probably the best case scenario for most of us long time WR fans. They've gotten more screentime and paterner time then ever before.

>that new manga chapter

I'm digging this so much, its kinda insane how much WR we're getting. I've never been this appeased before.
>>
>>2870655

Yeah, I know what you mean about appeasement, lass. I'm gonna just go and, umm, refreshen up a bit now.

General question, but hopes for the next chapter?

>Ruby comforts Weiss about angering Blake
>helps me come to terms and talk about Wess' history with the white fang

The focus on WR is so obvious, they better not force Ruby to be with Penny this whole time.
>>
>>2870810
>they better not force Ruby to be with Penny this whole time.
I mean, they already separated her from WBY, and had Blake and Weiss' argument reach its climax, where-as in the show Ruby was with them when the argument began, and it didn't reach a head until they were all back at the dorms. Ruby then ran into Penny again after splitting from Yang and Blake later when they were all searching for Blake.

That the argument already resulted in Blake running, while Ruby was already isolated with Penny, makes me believe the next chapter will dive straight into the confrontation with Roman and the White Fang at the docks, closing out V1.
>>
>>2870820
You raise a few good points, but I find it hard that they'd separate them for very long, considering their partner dynamic set up so far.

I also hope Yang actually steps up and becomes an actual character with some interest in her partner.
>>
>>2870827
>but I find it hard that they'd separate them for very long, considering their partner dynamic set up so far.
Maybe they'll actually have Weiss and Yang catch-up in time to participate in the dock fight? Would be a pretty drastic change, but one I'd welcome for sure.

>I also hope Yang actually steps up and becomes an actual character with some interest in her partner.
Yet another reason to hope her and Weiss are actually present this time, and not just there at the end for a feel-good reunion. The panel framing actually focused on her when Blake ran, which was a nice little touch compared to how non-existent their relationship was originally.
>>
>>2870655
>>2870820
Are there any plans to bring over this new manga yet, officially? I'm liking the WR focus a shit ton, and it looks good so far in general.

I finished volume 3, things got really good from episode 9 onward.
Most of the volume was standard tournament arc stuff, overarching background plots with macguffins and villains included, but once Ruby was piecing things together and Mercury failed to follow the most basic order of "stay in one room" then it was getting interesting. The twist, upheaval, and invasion were good and the turn around during the final act made it feel like an actual show with long-term narrative and investment. The fact that the entire stage was flipped on its head and the established characters and world have been taken to a point of null - and even into the negative for some cases (Yang and Pyrrha) - after building everything up for three volumes is pretty interesting and bold, it's not often that a story puts so much audience investment into a setting just to destroy it all and push the goal into a new direction. That usually happens early on with little build up or very late with little consequences, so it's nice to see the story rise, fall, and rise again in what I assume is the middle of the story. I'm honestly surprised things went as far as they did during the darkest hour, I knew some things in advance simply from outside exposure (like Yang's robot arm) but I was still surprised by what they went through with and how screwed everyone was. Ruby pulling deus ex machina out of her ass (or eyes) was dumb, but not surprising. I had the same reaction as Cinder did. Pressing F repeatedly for Pyrrha. I teared up during a few scenes, like Ruby hugging Yang and "I May Fall" (though out of awe). Consider me fully invested at this point; story, characters, and all.
Continuing in another post because I type a lot.
>>
>>2870164
All of the fights during the final episodes were pretty great and the best so far (like anons were saying), if scenes like Yang vs Mercury, Velvet's, or Pyyrha's fight were Monty's peaks then he did a great job with them; thoroughly entertaining and well choreographed while utilizing the characters unique strengths. If those were his final works then I think it's a real shame that he died in the middle of his passion project, one can only imagine what he could have done with future fight scenes.
Velvet being a badass was a pleasant surprise, since she was pretty unassuming before, and playing "I May Fall" during her scene made the fight a lot cooler because I'm a sucker for lining up fights with powerful vocal songs. I'm starting to like her with more screen time, give the cute bunny girl more attention. I'm guessing her camera can copy weapons and techniques, explaining her constant picture taking, and her box is the source of the light-weapons. Pyyrha's final fight was the best fight by construction but Velvet's was probably my favorite, though I'm disappointed that they didn't show more of Ozpin fighting because I've been expecting him to be a one man army.
I've noticed a style shift in some images here as well as the thumbnails of the V4 videos, I'm guessing that they remade all of the character models after Monty passed and stuck with it?
>>2870286
Ruby and Weiss have a pretty good dynamic going for them, even if that's probably the most obvious choice ever. I'm sure they're akin to being the "Diakko" of RWBY since it's basically the exact same dynamic between a tsundere and naturally skilled royalty and an optimistic and secretly powerful idiot. Yang and Neo could have something good between them in a sort of hate-fuck way, but maybe that's just because I want to see Neo top someone with her smug expressions. Now that I've seen Velvet get more action and read about Coco being a lady killer, I can totally support their cute gay ship.
>>
>>2871532
>>2871533
Nice, thanks for sharing. And actually the creators have said that RWBY will probably end up at around 12 volumes or so, depending on certain factors and how they’ll structure things moving forward. So the Fall of Beacon isn’t actually the middle of the story, but more like 1/4. You just cleared the first major arc.

Velvet’s semblance allows her to mimic fighting styles and her camera can make hard light copies of weapons she takes photos of. But only temporarily. Ozpin will be explained later but remember that Cinder was also juiced up on maiden powers.

The style change from v4 onward is because they switched from using the Poser animating program to Maya, so the animation would be smoother.

A lot of fans have mixed feelings about the next two volumes, but as long as you’re invested like you said, it won’t be too bad. I myself don’t mind the change of pace, and the more introspective and quieter character-driven moments made me even more attached. Like others said before, the action takes a hit, but it seems to have returned to form in v6.
>>
>>2871603
I am, for one, followed vol 2 and 3 and stayed a long time without watching it. I binged 4 and 5 after they were released and it really made it a lot more tolerable. The writing reached it's very low on vol 5 but I still enjoyed it somewhat because I didn't have to wait for it, but re-watching it later I felt it was really bad, other than really liking Yang on vol 5 the whole rest of the volume felt more like a chore to watch. Volume 6 is a high contrast of quality for the story.
>>
>>2870383
I was expecting both of those arcs to be cut down, but I'm surprised they omitted both of them entirely.

"Badge and the Burden" is likely because manga Ruby is a much more serious character than Ruby in the show, so Weiss had no reason to doubt her once the teams formed.

"Jaundice" is the more expected cut. It's usually peoples least favorite arc in v1, not to mention a supporting cast member like Jaune getting serious development before Yang when she's one of the title characters. I heard it was received so poorly that they aired a cut down version of the arc in Japan to get it done faster.
>>
I just read the new manga chapter and it feels like it helps sink BlackSun.

For one, he no longer winks at Blake when he runs by. And in this version he didn't somehow magically know that Blake was a faunus, this time only finding out after seeing her remove her ribbon by random chance. On top of that the chapter ends on him calling Blake "My new faunus friend."

On top of that the chapter added a reaction shot of Yang when Blake revealed her secret and ran away from her and Weiss, so hopefully we'll get more Yang/Blake interactions in the manga, since v1 of the show barely had any.
>>
>>2871603
Well, they're certainly ambitious. I think V6 finished not too long ago, how long are the waits between volumes, usually? Few months, close to a year? I'm watching these in chunks but soon enough I'm gonna end up playing the waiting game like everyone else.
Velvet has a cool semblance at least, if they're temporary then that would explain Coco saying "make them count". And why she takes so many pictures.
If anything I tend to find character-driven plot threads more interesting, especially since there's a lot of focus on likeable characters as is, and while the action is nice I understand that they probably slowed things down to get their bearings.
>>
>>2872088
The volumes usually come out in October.
>>
>>2872088
As >>2872140 said, last few volumes have pretty consistently started in late October, so we're 6 months out from V7 by most projections.

We'll probably be getting our first look at what's to come at RTX though, which is at the start of July this year, so a little over 2 months away.
>>
>>2872059
Suppose we'll get a better picture with how they handle the two alone together in next month's issue. Really, it's not like they need to bother, given we know how things play out in the end. Still, downplaying early, misleading ship-tease is a nice touch for a distilled adaptation.

I'm still hoping they further downplay Neptune, or even just remove him entirely. He's relevant to nothing except giving Jaune a bit of development, and since the manga's already cut out Jaundice already... would be nice if it similarly dropped Neptune.
>>
>>2872187
Neptune will still probably show up, since Sun's around and he played a role in the investigation arc in v2. They could just turn him into a more casual flirt and leave out the stuff with Weiss.

Since the manga will go into v2, and we're already near the end of v1, I'm wondering how they'll handle the dance arc. They could still have Blake go with Sun, but this time add a line about them going as friends.
>>
>>2872187
Neptune is pretty inoffensive as Sun’s hot but dorky buddy cop, it’s just in our nature to get defensive about perceived threats.
>>
>>2872557
Ah yes, good ol' /u/ pessimism. Monty made Haloid though, so it wasn't like he was against lesbians.

I know it's in fashion to a pessimist but I honestly trust them on this particular thing just based on everything we've been shown in-show and all the support by staff. Not to mention, pilot boi shows they're aware of issues with LGBT portrayal and I can't imagine queerbaiting as an issue is something they're entirely ignorant to.

Considering how much they've omitted already, I'd say there is a good chance he doesn't show up, considering how minor his role actually is, and the fact that he only helped Jaunes character, and so far the manga is straying away from JNPR focus.

And if Neptune does show up, cant wait for Rubes to get possessive
>>
>>2872921
I mean it really hasn't been presented as romantic yet, but it really feels like it's heading in that direction especially the way they use shots of them reacting to each other, framing etc. seem like a big deal. Also some of the wording that Adam chooses in their final confrontation i.e " So you're choosing, her over me" is suspect.
>>
>>2872861
Welcome to the fold, glad you enjoyed it!

>>2872921
It's not just the handling of that pilot--Rooster Teeth/CRWBY also has a good number of LGBT employees, including but not limited to the voices of Ruby, Blake, Pyrrha, and the main vocalist of the series' music. I find it incredibly hard to believe that nobody would fail to point out "hey, the direction you're taking with Blake and Yang is looking romantic, are you sure that's your intent?" if they were meant to be platonic.
>>
>>2872861
Now you can go listen to the soundtrack, the lyrics show better character progression than the writing in volumes 4 and 5

Well, that could give a whole new meaning to Coco's comment about Emerald.
>"Oooh, I like her!".
>>
>>2873025
>" So you're choosing, her over me"
I don't think he said that. What he said to Yang was "What does she even see in you!?" and he also went into a rage at how Blake and Yang were looking at each other.

In retrospect, comparing how BB is treated next to the confirmed couples makes it easier to see it in a romantic light. For example--barring blatant circumstances like Pyrrha kissing Jaune--all of them have held hands in an intimate way at least once. RWBY has a tendency to use that to signify romance for the most part (see Renora and the Cotta-Arcs).

And the final fight against Adam was almost like a big shout out to the Beauty and the Beast climax. His "What does she even see in you?!" was just straight up "Were you in love with her, Beast? Did you honestly think she'd want you, when she had someone like me?" I'm surprised people are still denying it after that. That line is never used outside a romantic context.
>>
>>2873266
Yeah you're right. I didn't quite remember the quote correctly but it definitely had some romantic implications.
>>
>>2873268

I think it's pure denial. I heard quite a few people argue that Adam only imagined that Blake and Yang had romantic feelings for each other because he was so off the deep end by that point. Or that even though he thought that, as a character not everything he says is true.
>>
>>2873268
Yeah I watched someone's analysis making a similar comparison. Also how Blake's surname Belladonna could be referring to that as well.


I feel like what sells me the most is the knowing glance between Ruby and Yang at the end of the last episode.
>>
>>2873280
It's not really denial as much as it is people seeing Adam as utterly obsessive and possessive that the sheer thought of Blake needing someone else but him is something he cannot grasp. Adam thinks he is all that matters, so why should Blake need anyone else? It's his fucked up mindset of thinking himself as strong, heroic and a saviour of an entire race and then seeing Yang who he regards as weak in body and spirit.

Not denying what is going with Bumblebee with that line but I don't think it's as simple as some make it out to be but more deep rooted with Adam's warped view and mindset.
>>
>>2873212
Wasn't there a part of Ozpin's speech in Volume 2 before Mountain Glenn where he discussed how important diversity is in perspective to how the war ruined art and culture?
>>
>>2873286

"The war was about more than borders that fell or who traded with who but the very idea of individualism itself. We fought for countless reasons, one being the destruction of art and self expression. And as you are well aware, that was what many could not stand for. To oppose this tyranny began naming their children after the core aspect of art, colour. It was their way to demonstrate they will not give into this oppression but neither the generations to come. A trend still held to this very day. We encourage individuality, expressionism and unity through diversity."
>>
>>2873280
The "Adam is crazy, nothing he says makes sense" argument only works when he's gaslighting Blake, blaming her for his problems. Those people forget that Adam is skilled at manipulation, not only with Blake, but with his faction of the White Fang. He knew Blake for years, and how to control and abuse her to get her to comply before she broke away from him. Abusers need to know their victim.

That's not to say he didn't go off the deep end, but Adam clearly saw something between Blake and Yang that he didn't in Blake and Sun. He saw Yang as a threat, the one who took Blake from him, not Sun.

Meta-wise, word choice is deliberate; there were plenty of different ways the writers could've written that dialogue, but they chose to have Adam refer to Yang as someone Blake loves while Sun is a "classmate". This falls in line with what Miles said in an interview about how apprehensive he is about accidentally sending the wrong message with his writing.
>>
>>2873296
I think his skill at manipulation also showed how he got into Yang's head for a moment.
When he asked her if she thinks she is faster than he was at Beacon. Then he saw she was shaking, he laughed and said "me neither".

In hindsight, even the comment at Haven makes sense now.
"I am making humanity pay for what they've done!".
I do think there was some truth to himself believing but if I think of manipulation the scene looks different.
His own subordinate questioned him but he wanted to keep control but was also mad it didn't go his way. So to keep control, he told him "I am making humanity pay" like it was for a greater cause.

Even Sienna calling him a Hero looks different.
At first I thought it was Adam thinking: I am a hero?
But now I look at it more like Adam thinking:
Wait, I actually am a Hero now?
Like, rather than fighting for a cause and becoming some hero in people's eyes through action, he used action to make people see him as a hero.
>>
>>2873285
>Also how Blake's surname Belladonna could be referring to that as well
I just think it's interesting how Blake is both Beauty and Beast, and has a bunch of stuff alluding to that, including Adam being a mix of the Enchanted Rose and Gaston. And I know Yang is supposed to resemble Goldilocks, but it's more interesting to see her as the Belle to Blake's Beast and the Beast to Adam's Gaston imo.

Creators said they're not interested in completely retelling the tales their characters were inspired by, but it's funny how BB vs. Adam was basically BatB.

>>2873293
Yes, the novels are canon.

Specifically the new upcoming “After the Fall” novel is canon.
The anthology manga are non-canon, and the Miwa manga is “kind of canon”.

>>2873266
The "What does she even see in you!?" is a more direct quote, but he did say "so you're choosing her over me", in a fashion.

Exact quote was
>"I know you've made your choice..."
Which, contextually, could only be referring to Yang over him.

I just spent my morning watching all of volume 4, and I can understand why. The action definitely took a back seat, like others were saying, though whether that was because they had just lost Monty or because the story pacing called for it is hard to say. I didn't mind it though, having some time to focus on character development, fleshing out the world and families some, and grounding things after such a drastic change was a good thing even if it could be boring for some. Even during the few action scenes, I still thought they were pretty nicely done; maybe not as flashy and bombastic as before, and a few rough spots, but still enjoyable eye candy. If anything I thought the opening had the stiffest movements.

Ruby probably had the best slice since she got most of the main action with some character building and lore (though stating the world mythos as matter-of-fact was kind of lame), Yang had good character building as she dug herself out of depression, and Blake... continued to be an emo cat like usual. Though I did really enjoy how expressive her ears were. Even though Weiss probably had the most boring scenes, with virtually none, I kind of found myself enjoying watching her Spanish soap opera with her dad being such a selfish, unforgiving cunt and her brother being a snake. Her family is kind of fucked up but I'm guessing that will make their probable downfall all the more sweet. Also, what was with Klein? Multiple personalities or something to do with his semblance, assuming he has one?
And one more thing...

Klein changing personalities is referencing the Seven Dwarfs; his last name is Sieben. Just like how Weiss's namesake is German Snow White.

I'm an idiot for not piecing that together sooner. I even knew that the characters are based on fairy tails and what the words meant in the back of my head. Still, nice to know how he works, it makes sense now.

It is 100% about Bumblebee, but it should be noted that it was made as a bonus for fans by Jeff Williams, the composer, with no input or directive from the writers.

Weiss is the weird case that she has two fairy tales.
Of course you have Snow White or Schneewitchen in german but there is also Schnee Weiss which is Snow White in literal translation.
Thing is, the two are the same name in english with Snow White but different in german.
This is because despite the name, they are two different characters.

Schneewittchen is the story with the dwarves.
Schnee Weiss is about a duo of sisters, the other being Rose Red who give refuge to a bear who is a prince that was cursed by a dwarf.

Relatable, I'm making my way through V6 right now and while I didn't pay much mind to Velvet at first, once I saw her (and Coco) in action they won my heart over. Also nice that it was revealed that Coco was a lady killer around the same time.

Also, are there any good torrents for all the volumes? I've been watching them all via Youtube but RT apparently doesn't have V6 on there yet, so I found a lone torrent for that and kinda want to have them all on hand now.

They're not gonna put anymore RWBY videos on Youtube, no thanks to YT demonetizing vids for the most inane reasons. For example a ton of LGBT content is getting struck, and with the way things are going in RWBY...

I know it's hip to pirate, but honestly even if you don't make a First account, you can still watch videos for free on their website with a normal RT account, which costs no money and gets rid of ads. I sound preachy but I daresay it's worth it to support them officially.

Well that's lame, but I can't say I'm surprised.
And honestly, I don't mind supporting them (I've even considered buying merch), it's just more convenient and comfortable to watch from a stand-alone media player than from a website video player or even worse... streaming (CR). Plus, I like to hoard what I watch for rainy days. I wouldn't mind if there were an option to download the video files straight from the site, but if nothing else I can watch them from the site during the next volume.

>I know it's hip to pirate, but honestly even if you don't make a First account, you can still watch videos for free on their website with a normal RT account, which costs no money and gets rid of ads. I sound preachy but I daresay it's worth it to support them officially.
>it's worth it to support them officially.
RT are greedy shitbags who do not deserve support. Also they are not some small indie group that needs fan support in the first place.

Perhaps so, but fan support does let them know where to allocate their resources.

Yeah? Is that why they cut RWBY V6 episodes to accommodate Gen:lock? I'm sure glad you helped let them know how to allocate resources.

If you are a grown-up with a job you should probably pay for your entertainment, I say this as a total hypocrite to pirates the show so I fell guilty and buy the soundtracks. It's only entrainment and if it's not worth your money then it's probably not worth your time.

The logical side of my brain tells me "RT put out a Gay Pride shirt with Ruby on it because her silhouette has always been used as a series mascot."

>No one pays for RWBY
Plenty of dumb normalfags pay for RWBY, even if it's just via YT ad revenue, literally no one had paid for Gen:Lock before it aired, obviously people paying for things has zero influence on where they decide to put resources, as should be self evident from shit like Volume 5 happening despite RWBY being extremely successful at the time or that they still refuse to hire an actual composer and music team even when volumes suffer from using their dropout rock dad. One look at After the Fall's book cover, or the card game, or the board game, or the figs/shirts/etc should tell you exactly how little they give a shit about investing even the tiniest amount of money in upping the quality of what they release.

Why the fuck would you pay for entertainment when it's clear that money is not actually going towards the entertainment? All you are doing is telling them it's perfectly fine to continue to cut corners and put out cheap shit, because they get money for that anyway so why bother actually putting in resources or effort. That is the exact reason why we're still getting 13 and 14 minute episodes in V6.

Technically if we’re getting specific here, while the show IS Gray’s brainchild, once Michael B. Jordan got involved, his people basically bankrolled the whole thing.

Alright, but how much of it is actually good and engaging? I write sins for the devil's library myself but I still can't be bothered to read a lot of stuff that's put out there either because of quality or because it's so long it's practically a novel.
>>2878547
I watched one episode of CRWBY so I kinda understand what the others would be about, but what about Rewind? Is that just looking back on older episodes and reflecting on them?
>>
>>2878702
Pretty much; Rewind's basically like a talk show involving people who work at RT but not on CRWBY discussing new episodes as they come out. They also interview cast and crew members about the episode and story/characters, sometimes even fandom stuff.
>>
>>2878702
Given the sheer volume, there are some really good ones out there. Finding stuff that's both short and good is a bit harder, I think, if only because those don't tend to leave as big of an impression unless it's smut that matches your kinks

It's an ocean and I always assume that most of it will be mediocre or bad right out the gate. The only one I know about by name is Rush because that's one my friend talked about, other than that it's a little hard to just dive in because of the overwhelming amount of content out there.

Writing kinky, short one-off smut is what I'm all about.

It might be a good start to look for stories about smaller pairings. Fewer fics, but a slightly higher chance you'll find something good.

Rush is a really good one. Author's actually posting an updated version to AO3 currently, compared to their usual FF.net posting. Personally my favorite is "What Defines Us" by the same author.

The first chapter of After the Fall introduces a Huntress that Coco gets all hot and bothered over.
>>
>>2878798
Theres several pastebin links in the OP if you wanna give them a shot. The latest has yet to be updated, and the amount of good stuff depends on what ships you're into.

Whiterose and Bumblebee have a majority of the fanfictions and its pretty easy to find good ones, not to mention the good stuff is made by the same crowd of people consistently.

My personal favorites are Broken Statues, Supernatural Affairs and Layers of Ice.

Can read the first couple chapters and a bit on Kobo.

First two chapters alone have stuff like Fox and Velvet's Semblances and Weapon Names, a Vacuoan version of Maria, non-Grimm monsters, and Coco checking out a Huntress and briefly fantasizing about her in a military uniform. Also having "She's Hot" on the list of reasons why she respects Glynda.

Instead of Ruby making Weiss more comfortable with aspects of the middle-class lifestyle, which is the route 99% of fanfics take, Weiss corrupts Ruby and gets her hooked on a lavish lifestyle funded by Weiss' money. Ruby ends up turning into an arrogant snob who fawns on Weiss and looks down on everyone else, especially poor people.
>>
>>2880286
That is pretty stupid, given Weiss herself was never portrayed as particularly materialistic or hedonistic in the first place. But I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't read a fanfic going off this premise.

I actually like the Blake or Velvet in heat trope. Both trying to hide it and embarrassed.
>Blake tossing and turning enough in her bed to wake up Yang above her.
>Yang peaks down to see Blake smelling and masturbating to Yangs night shirt that suddenly went missing.
>Yang watches the first night shocked and turned on.
>The next day Yang pats Blakes head for whatever friendly reason.
>Blake loves it but is embarrassed and a sound slips out
>Yang takes it a step further and reaches around and plays with her tail
>Blakes knees start to buckle
>Blake begs her to stop but she clings to her
>Yang backs Blake down onto her bed, spotting her night shirt tucked and hidden in the corner by her pillow
>Yang grabs it and teases her about it while now running her fingers up and down Blakes waist and and thighs.
>Yang ties her arms up with her purple sash as a blindfold and teases her until Blake caves and begs for it.
Or Blake ties up Yang and doms her.

Anything with Velvet or Blake domming Yang and Cocoa would be nice too.

That's my kryptonite.
I don't know which way I like it more. Having Blake be all submissive when in heat, making her perfect for Yang to tease. Tying her up, pinning her down and lying on top of her, biting at her neck and running her hands all over her until Blake is a shivering, moaning wreck who's making a desperate mess of the sheets she's humping against.
Or have it trigger her dominant streak. Dragging Yang into the dorm room by the collar, not caring whether or not Ruby and Weiss can get out in time, and pushing Yang down. Hastily trapping her limbs with ribbons as Blake sets to claim her, marking her with bites and scratches, getting drunk off her arousal and rubbing her scent all over Yang as Blake fucks her into the carpet until both are out of Aura.

>>2880918
From Wiki:
>nekomimi or nekomimis) (chiefly Japanese fiction) A fictional character who has cat ears on an otherwise human body, and possibly other feline characteristics such as a tail.
>>
>>2880927
OK, let's see what the Japanese wiki says (why would you go to English wikipedia for a Japanese term??)
https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/猫耳
>猫耳(ねこみみ)またはネコミミは猫の耳、あるいは猫の耳状のものを持つ人型のキャラクター。猫の耳のついた髪飾りあるいは演劇・コスプレのコスチュームの一種である。萌え要素のひとつ。
There isn't a single mention of tails in the entire article.
Even what you're quoting only says "and possibly" other feline characteristics.
>>

>Rwby may be weeb, but it's not /that/ weeb.
I don't know, v1 had some pretty heavy weeb tropes.
>Starry-eyed chibi Ruby
>Cat mouths
>Anime-esque visual gags playing on cheap animation humor or "physics got turned on" humor
Not to mention every OP is anime as fuck. It's very clearly heavily inspired by the anime visual style even though its narrative is western inspired, and it's one of the closest things you can get to "western anime" outside of say Avatar or Castlevania.
>>
>>2881036
Fair. Th early volumes are more weebish but it's been getting a bit lesser as we go on. I'm just saying having both animal ears and a tail would be too reminiscent of anime.
>>
>>2881048
Chibi is also anime as fuck but it's not canon so I won't count it.
Either way, I don't mind the one anime trait thing aside from the question of if an animal's strength, speed, sense of smell, etc. is included with that. Like Ilia can use camouflage so I'd assume that's the "one trait", but then Blake's dad has claws and presumably some kind of "animal rage" strength. Does Velvet have incredible hearing with her ears? Does a dog Faunus need a dog's nose to have a strong sense of smell, or will they lack it if they have a dog's hind legs instead?
The other thing I want to know about is the evolutionary and genetic split between humans and Faunus, but that's a mystery that will never be answered.
>>
>All the Velvet/Coco ITT
Glorious. I'm glad we focused on them for once.
>>
>>2881057
>if an animal's strength, speed, sense of smell, etc. is included with that
That's something I wondered myself. Someone pointed out that Blake is oddly adept at leaping distances no human has been really able to replicate without assistance. But Pyrrha said that many Faunus have enhanced night vision, which by itself shouldn't really be classified as the singular trait. And we saw in v6 Blake's ears react to noise when she heard Yang's bike engine.
>>
>>2881061
Well, Coco is the hot topic, being a confirmed canon gay, and since team-ships are best ships...
>>
>>2881068
Then I guess some amount of natural animal senses or strengths comes with the singular traits as a bonus, I guess the only question after that is "what selective senses come with each Faunus type" and if they correlate to having animal ears, nose, etc.
