Why bother making a new thread for a dead show?
>>
>>3555783
I mean… because it’s still airing and RWBY has more canon /u/ content than Korra or AoT and those shows had general threads on /u/ for years.
Fucking Korra kept their threads going years after the show ended.

There is absolutely zero canon /u/ content other than the lizard girl and the main character's sister. Everything else is dragged along by VAs while the writers refuse to give anything to the characters other than misery and stupidity.

RWBY's fans are too good for the terrible creators.

Korra's /u/ amounted to a literal last-minute hookup. At least Blake and Yang are a couple in the series proper

>>3555963
You're right in theory. Compared to the extremely subtle, easily-deniable background development of Korrasami, Bumblebee is much more blatant... but no less in the background. They've not really had any real, prominent development since killing Adam.

And while Korrasami might not have been very prominent in the show, they did get the comics to really flesh out and show their relationship quite explicitly. Meanwhile the RWBY comics are... bad. Just, so fucking bad. What BB there is, is just pandering in the most bad-fanfic kind of way. The manga are better, and have some BB content, but tend to skew more towards WR in general.

Korra is a significantly better show in terms of general quality, they are really not even comparable. I'd even hesitate to call RWBY better in /u/ content, since at least Book 3 and 4 Korrasami's friendship interactions prior to the finale are better written than any of BB's handful of friendship, angst and then they-like-each-other scenes in volumes 1-8. And I say that as someone who didn't particularly like the show or Korrasami.
>>3556154
There wasn't anything better in Monty's volumes. His thing was fighting and the fights in volumes 6+ are better than the ones in 1-3. It sure as shit was never "good" when he was around, since the first and second volumes were genuinely bad and 3 was the first surprisingly decent one.
>>
>>3556227
One of them supposedly is, but from what I hear her published stories aren't very good either.

Trying to analyze the writing credits on RWBY, a vague pattern emerges. Kerry is always listed on the best episodes, frequently with Miles, but Miles' solo credits -while decent as stand-alone watches- tend to work poorly with the overarching narrative. Kiersi's (the supposed professional) contributions -both solo and grouo- tend to be pretty meh overall, while Eddy's episodes are just the worst.
>>
>>3556252
>the first and second volumes were genuinely bad and 3 was the first surprisingly decent one.
This is honestly why I'm still kind of holding out hope for V9, despite finding 7 & 8 to be abysmal. It would constitute a pattern at that point, 'cause like you say 1 & 2 were pretty bad, but then 3 was pretty good, and I'd say the same of 4 & 5 then subsequently 6. So, 7 & 8 being awful but 9 managing to pull off being actually (at least relatively) good would be par-the-course.

Not really sure if my still holding onto such a hope constitutes Stockholm Syndrome or not, or if I'd rather 9 is just bad so I can finally give up on this show entirely, maybe.
>>
This show sucks, the "writers" have no concept of story telling. Everything about RWBY is a ripoff of a better show. The voice "acting" is atrocious. If I wanted to see Circus de sogay acrobatic fights, I'd watch the prequels.

I don't know where Kiersi came from but Eddy was the Red vs Blue lore compendium guy whose sum total of """original""" writing experience before being dragged onto the RWBY team was Dragonball Z fanfiction and Nomad of Nowhere which, while cute, was an absolutely abortive attempt at a new show that RT refused to believe failed on merit.

>>3555951
Here's a quick and dirty N&D before I take a nap and then go out of town for the weekend. I'll think on what I can do for an Enabler and Winter/Penny while I'm gone and take a stab at them next week. Ok maybe not stab I'll be gentle with our poor beloved robot girl.

P.S. I absolutely REFUSE to show Penny's feet but otherwise just about everything else is on the table if there're more requests. This is kinda fun.

I thought Nomad failed because that shit eater Gray was siphoning off money from Nomad and other RT show’s budgets to fund his GenLock autism.

First season was fun, the animation wasn't too great at times but the action and comedy were good. Ruby is a great character. That pink haired girl is also funny. It would be nice if they explained a bit more about magic though, idk where all their skills come from.
Just started season 2 and it's cute to see Ruby coming on to Weiß so strongly. But that Neptune guy needs to go; I hope Weiß doesn't become Pyrrah 2.0, all that stuff with Jaune feels so jarring. Also that old man either has a bunch of identical twins or he's reaaally working to many jobs.

Someone once summed it up quite well by saying, “RWBY’s flaws are miles wide but only an inch deep.”
Basically everything wrong with it is very surface level shit that pretty much anyone would notice and most of the time it’s so minor it’s not even worth talking about.
We really don’t need 3 hour long video essays about how “Character with 3 lines of dialogue was ruined forever” or my favorite, “The WF did nothing wrong and terrorism is based actually”.

See now that’s what I mean.
Plot hole wank is a very shallow form of media criticism. Because there’s always some way to use mental gymnastics or head canon to explain it away.
RWBY has like 1, maybe 2 plot holes that are bad enough that this doesn’t apply.

Now consider the opposite example which for me is Game of Thrones season 8.
Flaws that are only an inch wide but are so deep they retroactively ruin entire characters, plotlines, and ultimately probably the whole show.

Not sure that actually makes it better. That the audience has to band-aid writing problems with convoluted excuses is just evidence of how poor the writing is. If you are having to constantly go "Wait, what, why?" and then try to write in some tenuous explanation for how a thing could have made sense if a bunch of other random stuff that wasn't shown was actually happening in the background, you are pretty much already in the territory of
>[ruining] entire characters, plotlines, and ultimately probably the whole show.
I think there are definitely characters and plotlines that were seriously ruined by glaring problems in the writing. Pyrrha and Cinder both, the entire Haven arc, a large chunk of Atlas'.
>>
>>3558383
>Flaws that are only an inch wide but are so deep they retroactively ruin entire characters, plotlines, and ultimately probably the whole show.
RWBY does have issues like this too. They just don't get nearly as much focus from the HTDM compared to the shallow stuff, which is just pathetic really. Plus the prominence of such shallow criticism just reinforces the writers ignoring any critique of larger issues.

I'm definitely of the mind that Atlas has ruined the whole show by making it blatantly obvious just how absurdly misguided the writing's priorities are. Theoretically they could pull /something/ salvageable together for V9, but at this point I think such a possibility is giving them too much credit.

Season 2 was fun, nice to see the villains getting a more prominent role, they look fun, not that that ginger was so bad though. That Neptune is annoying and it's dumb writing, like why would Weiss even look twice at someone like that. At least Blake doesn't really care about the monkey. That Yang/Blake stuff with the ball was nice. Also feels like Ruby is taking a liking to Weiss, also good. Idk why they let the fire-woman hack all the PCs and then do nothing with it, but maybe next season. Would also be interested in the life of the Grimm, what do they eat, how do they procreate, etc. but that will probably not be covered... Oh yeah and the action was nice, even if it's still complete nonsense.
Also why couldn't they let this happen... we only got a few seconds of the Blake/Yang dance too...

It is, though I can't say it's all that interesting. Volume 3 is pretty solid so at least you have that coming.

Pacing is big issue in the show, made worse by way too large a cast for everyone to get good development and screen time. The large, undeveloped cast was good in early volumes for shipping, but these days it's kinda just detrimental.
>>
>>3561522
>That Neptune is annoying and it's dumb writing, like why would Weiss even look twice at someone like that.
I was infuriated by this when I originally watched V2 years ago. On a rewatch, I realized Neptune's presence was entirely to make Jaune look better by comparison. Thankfully, they do away with Neptune in V3. Unfortunately, Jaune continues to be a detriment to the development of all other characters to this day, though V7&8 favored Penny more, V9 looks set to return to Jaune-centrism.

>Also feels like Ruby is taking a liking to Weiss, also good.
They are the best.

I admire your optimism but don't forget Neo is also there. If anyone would get left behind I'd sooner expect her since it's hard to imagine the writers ever being willing to let go of Jaune
>>
>>3561559
I honestly feel really good about Neo being perfectly safe. The writers seem to understand just how much the audience likes her and she realistically just got shifted to the villain side, so I don't think she's going to get removed at this point. I feel like the worst that will happen to her is wandering off to do crime back in the regular world. Also vague hope for NeoxEm when rwby+ get back to Vacuo?

>>3561556

>Even RT wouldn't do that... right?
Adorable optimism. If the island is anything other than an afterlife or nexus or something, this show's a lost cause narratively. Presuming they do actually give some character arcs closure, Pyrrha and Torchwick would basically be guaranteed to appear. With Jaune consistently pining for Pyrrha, and Neo motivated entirely by Torchwick's death, closure to those arcs could give either of them cause to remain behind... but honestly, I doubt they'd go that way. Jaune resolving to continue down the path of a Huntsman for Pyrrha, and Neo being convinced to drop her pointless vendetta against Ruby both seem more likely. As does there being "No Consequences" for their little detour, beyond perhaps some angst from those left in Atlas and Vacuo. Which I dearly hope gets like, no attention in V9 because if they do the stupid split narrative crap again I stg...
On my own more optimistic note there is the glaring unknown of Penny, and the uncertainty surrounding her most recent death. Plenty of theories abound, and one I'd like to shine a light on is an idea going around about her corpse falling to the island and being found by the others. But, going off the aforementioned afterlife idea, what if instead Penny appeared alive and well, no worse the wear, only for the truth of her death to come out towards the end when she can't leave with the others?

>>3561565
>NeoxEmerald
I like them both, and they're cute together, but dunno about any actual show-presence. Theoretically, something could be made of Emerald leaving Cinder's side despite ostensibly still holding some loyalty towards her, vs Neo throwing in with her and getting burned. A cautionary tale of sorts.

Regardless, no matter how much people hate on HGS for having any rep at all, being as subtle with its characters as a plane crash on top of a train wreck, its designs, production values, behind-the-scenes stupidity, whatever; I refuse to classify it as worse than RWBY until it has successfully wasted 8+ years of its fanbase's life.

Something I doubt it will achieve, both due to lacking the longevity, and a fanbase in the first place.

That's on you. Unless you mean, 8 years of production.

I know I'm not the only one who's watched this shit since the start only to wind up increasingly disappointed.

And yeah, maybe that is on me for sticking around so long, but the objective fact remains that there's just MORE of RWBY being thoroughly awful. HGS is hardly a blip on the radar. It's like comparing one really smelly fart bubble to an entire ocean full of rotting garbage.

Then they fell into a manhole and thrashed about in a sewer for several years. Everyone expected it to die due to the myriad diseases they have aquired, yet somehow they still live.


The difference between whatever that thing is that leddit is shitting itself over and RWBY, is that RWBY actually has decent character designs and had actual potential to be great. That was squandered on terrible writers and nepotistically hired staff who utterly destroyed anything that could have been good about it.
That other thing is just another single season only shitshow that will be entirely forgotten by this time next year.

I don't know why I even like RWBY. The music sucks ass, the writers are obviously winging it, and they have more side characters than they have screen time to use them. The thing that it does well is character design, but that's about it.

Plus how many times are they going to kill Penny before it gets old?

It has a lot of female characters sure, but they're ultimately just there to make the males look better, so it's shit.

>The music sucks ass
God I wish more people would wake up and realize this. The frothing-at-the-mouth praise the OSTs get is so overblown. Casey's a pretty good singer/songwriter, and the couple songs that are all her are actually good, but Jeff on the hand... both his lyrics and music tend to be super fucking awkward.

>Implying RWBY for all it’s garbage isn’t better than 90% of seasonal garbage
It isn't. Not that seasonal shit is good, it is indeed garbage, but that garbage still manages to have better voice acting than many of RWBY's main characters, manages to have consistent run times of more than 20 minutes without a break in the middle of every season because of poor production scheduling, is typically much more internally consistent with its own world-building than RWBY often is, is usually better paced, usually doesn't shove in way more characters than it can handle and neglect ones that should be developed, handles character relationships better, etc.

Really the only things RWBY manages to do better than a typical seasonal garbage show are character design (sometimes), the setting, which gets continually undermined by shitty plot and poor execution, and (also sometimes) fighting.

>>3568209
Weebs are the only people who watch RWBY, you retard. It is a show made by weebs for weebs.
>>
>>3568223

Opinion of a retarded weeb discarded. RWBY has flaws, but VAing isn't it.
>>
>>3568223
>It is a show made by weebs for weebs.
That’s how it started out but in the current anime climate, RWBY is now a show for people who like anime but who hate almost every anime that’s been pushed out in the last decade.

Like I’ve enjoyed RWBY as a whole more than Kill la Kill, Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan season 1, or Konosuba. The first 3 I thought looked beautiful and that’s about it and Konosuba I just found myself watching in silence not laughing at any of the jokes till I eventually just dropped it.
>>
>>3568313
Jesus that’s hardly almost every anime released in the last decade. There’s been more yuri and yuri adjacent anime than that released in the last 5 years alone. Why are you wasting your time on obvious grimderp dreck like AoT?
>>
>>3568316
I’m just listing the “popular” shit that most people have watched.

Not really. Sure it started that way, drawing in the crowd of Monty's attached fanbase on top of RT's established gamer bros, expanding more into general weeb-fandoms with its over-indulgent anime stylings. But over the years, that's cooled off, and those that remain are largely like, the tumblr-types. You'd probably find more crossover in RWBY viewership with shows like MLP or TOH than you would a seasonal anime.

Yeah I've been skipping the intros since S2, I just hate them so much.

I guess what I am still watching it for was the resolution of some character arcs. Penny, Neo, and Jaune to be specific. I still like the week-to-week speculation and having something to look forward to.

>or finally do something so outright awful it turns me off entirely so that I finally stop caring.
that's the secret, though, it seems like they already got the worst of the dumb shit out already and it's never going to be stupid enough to get you to stop watching. If you could last through the plot holes and stupid shit of the last 2 seasons, you're in it for the long haul.

>Yeah I've been skipping the intros since S2, I just hate them so much.
The intros for V5 and 6 aren't bad, though the full version of 6 has some real awkward lyrics towards the end, so it's only the intro version that's any good.

>Penny

It's not impossible, but by god the potential is there for them to fuck up royally. They already have for Weiss, though by the same token she might be salvageable, but I lack any faith in these writers to actually do anything but royally fuck up.

RWBY is a good show and I personally enjoyed every volume. Volume 7 was a little weaker, not going to lie, but volume 8 was a good mixture of action and drama.
I admit the series could use a bit more comedy sprinkled in, but it is a fine line between overly dramatic and excessively jokey.
Freezerburn is best yuri ship due to story/fanfiction potential, and Harvest Moon is best ship for the same reason.

Yes. It explains why you have the mentality of someone fresh out of that echo chamber and why you respond to any negative opinion by screeching about the "HTDM", because you lack any sort of actual response to the points brought up and you learned on your previous sites that if you yell loudly enough about the "HTDM", then a mod will come and remove that disagreeing opinion or a bunch of equally deluded faggots will come pat you on the back and swear that those negative observations are just being made up, so you don't have to believe in them.

Only it doesn't work like that here, so instead you just come across as an out of place retard whose only response to people talking about the show's many problems is autistically spamming the same acronym over and over as if it's some sort of magical counter-argument.
>>

>haha you spend your time on two sites so filled with oversensitive literal children
Yeah, the autistic buzzword salad filled with nothing but strawman and assumptions you pulled out of your ass after being told people use more than one site tells me just how not triggered you are.
But look I get it, you're a ~2018 newfag going through that cringy phase where you tie your whole identity to a forum which you treat as a tribe users must be "loyal" to and think sperging out at "traitors" who use more than one site makes you fit in better. But it's just a phase. Don't let that stop you from schizoposting in response, tho.

No one cares about your "loyalty", you're getting mocked because your response to any negativity towards a badly made show is to type "HTDM!!!" like a twelve year old over and over. Everyone on the internet visits different sites you mongoloid, everyone else just doesn't feel the need to constantly broadcast it, the irony being that:
>that cringy phase where you tie your whole identity to a forum
you are the one with your identity so tied into a fansite tribe that you are actively using gimmicky abbreviations for "hatedom" to display how 'in' the RWBY tribe you are, even on a site where that isn't even a thing. Talk about projection.

In volume two they have a brief sort of rivalry with each other culminating in a fight, but that is about it for canon. Because the shipping community was very robust at the time, there's a great deal of foe yay fan content about them, including a decent number of fanfics. That said, their dynamic is usually more of a fighting-for-control thing than a corruption one.

https://bumbleby.com/rwby-volume-9-to-premiere-exclusively-to-the-new-hbo-max-expansion-package/
>Reactions to emotional scenes like Volume 8’s Bumbleby forehead-touch have shown us that we have indeed disappointed those who were waiting for Blake and Yang to kiss. To remedy that, Volume 9 will feature a full-length uncensored orgy scene between the five main characters stuck on the tropical island. Additionally, just like in gen:LOCK, we feel that it’s best to contrast these gratuitous scenes by having serious gender exploring questions. That means Jaune will not be taking part in the orgy action and instead will be doing some serious introspecting about his own sexuality and will be promptly killed off in the next episode.
I know it's a joke site but a RWBY orgy plus Jaune getting killed off would be a monumental improvement

Kill off everyone but Neo and then make the show about her running some mercenary/bounty-hunting team with the malachite twins.

>>3590812
Leave Jaune on the island (maybe an echo of Pyrrha's spirit is there and he wants to stay, or leaving requires a sacrifice). RWBY get to Vacuo too late and it's already been wiped out, anyone who isn't just dead has completely lost hope. Salem's actual endgame isn't destroying the world, just preventing the gods from every coming back by using Shade's relic to destroy the other three so they can't be brought together. She destroys knowledge and creation, and begins her plan of working to create a proper grimm replacement for humans, with no particular rush since she has infinite time and humans will die out eventually. She's way out of everyone's league and the story just becomes about humans trying to survive in a properly grimm-dominated world. No more kingdoms or big, happy carefree cities, just small villages and scattered, safer bunker/unground towns. RWBY just wander doing what they can, maybe trying to get the maidens together to help fortify the last human settlements.
