It's basically an anime because it's made bya a jap with weebs as his assistants, it's more than an imitation of japanimation style/jokes like ATLA has.

The way they do the white fang is such a lib take. A completely discarded subplot. And after The fall of Beacon Ruby basically gets fucked over as a character. White Fang is done poorly but not inaccurately. It's supposed to be a rebellion but it just acts like shit a lot of the time. What they really don't explore is WHY there is anti-faunus sentiment. They're not that fucking different and if the cultures evolved at similar times and close proximity there ought to be no racist concepts in it. There's a reason why Orcs and elves are portrayed as very different in physical and cultural aspects to humans.
>inb4 "but black racism"
Racism towards black people did not just arise because "dem negros are too dark skinned" But because of a multitude of reasons - cultural differences, stage of socio-economic development differences, etc. After modern chattel slavery and modern politics took the stage and people were already used to racism as a concept, THEN we get discrimination solely because of skin-color (and the associations that come with them). The same applies to Faunus, except more so, they didn't randomly arise on another continent away and get discovered by humans, they arose WITH humanity, so where did the racism come from? IMO they should have made a much stronger emphasis on animal traits (a la Monster Girls).

Miles and Kerry said themselves that they couldn't accurately write discrimination because they were white males and didn't know how to properly represent the oppression of minorities, but really it’s just laziness on their part. Being a "White Male" has nothing to do with it. Irish were an oppressed minority in the British Empire, and I've sure as hell read some good depictions of minority oppression written well by whites (To Kill a Mockingbird anyone?).

Adam was definitely nazbol. The White Fang's violence over-all isn't the issue, but Adam's portrayal seemed to make him a borderline sadist because "muh villain!!!". I'd be ok with him being a sadist, what I can't stand is that he went from extremist leader of a terrorist group to stalking, abusive ex-boyfriend. I'd say his character is too irrational to be the leader of a revolution ever, but he's the villain of a badly written cartoon show. They made him a sadist because it's the only way for the writers to show he's the villain since everyone who watched the show came to realize White Fangs are in the right (did they seriously expect people to sympathize with a corporation that uses slave labor just because the heir of said corporation is one of the main characters?).

But then Edgy Sadist Adam only made him cooler, so the writers to decide to make him even more obsessed with Blake. I'd have preferred a more level-headed villain, but heh, it's still a lib show that makes a horrible job in portraying minorities. I'm more surprised there aren't any money obsessed not-jews in Remnant. Then again making Adam a sadist is a bit of a libtard thing if you know a lot about the liberal mindset. Liberals dont think that people who hold beliefs outside "Muh window" are acting rationally or in good faith and are just acting out their personal problems on society as a whole. Obviously this actually does apply to some people (/pol/yp's) but not pro-civil rights revolutionaries. Also making Adams ideology that he wants to murder all humans indiscriminately makes him more like Idi Amin then say Mandela, Malcolm or MLK jr.

This is a fairly common sentiment too: https://old.reddit.com/r/RWBY/comments/b4a21i/adam_was_always_a_flawed_character/

For the first 3 seasons, RWBY was dumb fun with a bit of intriguing, mysterious, promising worldbuilding. Then it got loathsomely slow and self-serious with at least 2 major plotholes and out of character moments an episode. The worldbuilding was largely squandered or retconned. I finally dropped it because it just got just too retarded. Later seasons RWBY is fractally, holistically flawed. It's the anime equivalent of The Last Jedi. You cannot fix any one flaw because every flaw depends on every previous flaw, which intersect to create a resulting even greater flaw. Attempting to "fix" it would create something so drastically different as to bear no resemblance.

IMO, Adam has barely any characterization before he becomes "el nightmare ex". He's just a generic edgy cool dude. You can infer that he might be an activist/driven revolutionary from his social position, but you can't really see it because he has like 5 lines of dialogue in the first 3 seasons. I was actually surprised when I first came across the "Adam is Lenin/Fred Hampton!" take, because I didn't recognize that as what the writers were trying to do with him. I really feel like people are reading what they wish they saw into him, which, I completely understand as I wish they had gone much further in that direction.

Correct. The need to spell out everyone and everything as explicitly good or explicitly evil is a pervasive problem with the Miles+Kerry's writing and screams immaturity.

Yep, I honestly think that RWBY started off with some really good concepts and new takes on "le magical girl fighting team" idea (such as the concept of Aura, which acted as a plausible excuse for characters to survive otherwise impossibly fatal attacks) and then just ruined it because they had no long-term plan after Beacon's Fall. This really shows in fanfictions, where people can sometimes really expand and remove the initial flaws and so prevent that "Last Jedi"-tier muckup you described.

I keep watching it because it's like watching a trainwreck, but I honestly can't recommend it to anyone. There are so many dumb things, it's like the writers have no idea how to do their job.

Speaking of Adam and White Fangs: I always thought it was weird that Weiss, a porky racist, never apologized to Blake for her racism. Part of Weiss growth as a character is that at some point she realized that racism against faunus is wrong and that maybe if she wasn't part of the fantasy equivalent of a Virginian landowner, no faunus would have attacked her family business. I guess it's a bit awkward to say "Hey Blake, sorry for being racist and for using your kind as cheap labour", but still.
Another weird thing is the secondary villains are the White Fangs, a group that fights for the rights of faunus. They want to make a point how racism is wrong, yet when the main characters aren't busy killing monsters they beat up faunus who dared to attack a corporation that uses them as slaves. What RWBY is showing isn't exactly subtle for Americans and for people who know a bit of American history, but the writers are handling it with the usual "the path to hell is paved with good intentions" bullshit: sure faunus are oppressed and stuff, but maybe they should fight it with online petitions instead of taking up arms to fight those who work them to death. Oh and the fact that Huntsman are basically supercops doesn't help. No character is really bothered by racism against faunus, with the exception of faunus and maybe their human friends.
Adam was supposed to be an edgelord who wants to take revenge on humans, but it was later rewritten as a stalker obsessed with his ex. The more fans thought that white fangs were right, the more the writers tried to paint them as stupidly evil. And let's not talk about the lesbian faunus who was in love with Blake…

Well not really, Weiss herself wasn't racist so much as her Father and his company. Regardless of her attitude, she was raised a snobby rich girl which is where most of her prissiness comes from. It's less her character being racist and more the writers not having her address and confront anything about the company, they didn't even pull an Asami Sato situation.

In the first season, before Blake reveals she's a faunus, Weiss said a lot of racist things about faunus like how they're terrorists, how she doesn't trust them and so on. Is it because she was born into a porky family that exploits faunus? Of course, and she eventually realizes she was wrong, etc. The point is she never apologized to Blake, you might say it's not necessary to do it because they're now bros 4 life, but I think even a small "Hey Blake, sorry for being a cunt" would have made a difference. Is it cheesy? Is it clichè? Maybe, but it'd fit the show.

Volume 1 had the best action but the animation in every other area suffered. The plot was obviously an afterthought. Then the creator dies and the fight scenes suffered until volume 7 when they finally (along with the animation in general) got better. The story in the recent volumes is also better than the nonexistent filler in the first 2 and the poorly paced and thought out mess of 3-6 but that's not saying much. Blake's character is the most mishandled of the main cast. The white fang/faunus shit in general was laughably bad and even the writers were aware of it with how hastily they wiped out the WF and Adam from the plot, but others ITT already went in on that. Disappointed Ciel never showed up in the last 2 volumes, but there's no way they'll acknowledge the sea of characters they introduced in volume 3 beyond the two they did.

That too, and some of them are simply absurd. For example, Qrow and Clover have a semblance that grants bad luck/good luck. This means they have a reality altering semblance that's able to influence things to go in their disfavor/favor, which is, in theory, very powerful. Of course since nobody wants to see Qrow slipping on banana peels all the time, the semblance activates only when the writers think it's convenient which is extremely lazy.

> I think the racism against people with animal ears thing is one of the most hilariously stupid ideas I've ever seen in this kind of work

I could see it being a thing in a world where you have these fucked up monsters running around. Even without that, if you've got capitalism, you're going to need a section of the workforce to hyper-exploit, ala the Irish, Africans, Jews, etc. I could see some rich, powerful people choosing the faunuses as that, making the argument that their animal features made them sub-human, and thus okay to exploit. Or if they had some kind of connection to the monsters (Hollows?), or were scapegoated as such.

But yeah, people not liking them just because they have cute anime ears or tails or whatever? No, not really. I mean, just look at Blake, a stereotypical kawaii-nekojin waifu. I find it extremely hard to believe that anyone's going to discriminate against that. Enslave and make into harem fodder? Sure. Make sit at the back of the bus? Not so much.

>Why do faunus have only one trait from an animal, and why do they still have human ears if they already have cat or bunny ears?
And the main ideas seemed to be something related to Grimm, to provide a legitimate motivation for why humans tend to mistreat them.
Humans tried to create better humans through genetic engineering. That created 3 distinct groups: humans, faunus and Grimm. Humans and faunus had souls/consciousness, and thus were deemed "acceptable". Grimm didn't, and were deemed "disposable". Unfortunately, the ruthlessness and numbers of the Grimm caused massive casualties among the humans and faunus, forcing them into a small number of cities and villages contained by natural barriers. Cut off from the rest of the world they once controlled, the humans and faunus became the remnant of the civilization they once were.

Of course the grimm origins are no longer a question in the fandom (although the Silver-Eye Grimm sorta dangled more idea bait for fans

I know that the fandom loves to rag on the show, but to be honest it's still a pretty good attempt for something made initially by amateurs. It at least tried to create a new world and have some clever ideas and concepts or play on old tropes. It tried to have stakes and didn't shy from having characters die or be maimed or turn traitor. This is among many reasons it's superior to ripoffs like High Guardian Spice.

That spectacle of failure is like someone took the most annoying parts of Ruby and the gang, hung that out on the same basic story frame as RWBY but in a DnD e5 setting and topped it off by smacking on some liberal idpol:
- Team of Girls (including a black-haired catgirl)
- Heavy Magic Focus (most of it being combat related)
- MCs travel to an academy to become the warriors of their dreams
- All main characters are specialized
- Protagonist's mother went "missing" on a mission

The equipment factors into the outcome of the mission. If they're all just equipped with vaginas, then presumably they'll only be able to get pregnant, but if there are penises involved then in theory they can get each other pregnant.

But if they're futa that identify as penis-averse lesbians then that's going to add further variables into who gets pregnant and has the most kids, whether they're giving birth to them, or injecting their progeny into other hosts.

It's all very technical.

Comedy aside Bumblby ship is kinda cringe, and Season 7+ having hints of that relationship is kinda pathetic. I could see Yang being bisexual, she's a Rough and Tough Gal; in Volume 1 she literally made a comment during the sleepover (the night she met Blake) that she liked sleeping in the same room with the boys, and clearly her character loves to tease others, and sexual relationships are often a common source of teasing between friends and siblings, that's not a sign of sexual attraction. But Assuming Yang is a pendulum, Blake is an arrow, having obviously straight fantasies and attractions in early Seasons; she likes a trashy romance novel about Ninjas (Icha Icha?) and had a thing for Adam and later Sun.

But that doesn't stop shippers. Still they're not important, most people thought that Yang and Blake interactions as “Yang misses Blake so much.” in Volume 5. They held hands and Yang comforted her after the fight with Adam. Straight girls do this sometimes, it’s not a big deal. Of course they missed each other. They are best friends because they have been through a lot together. But then in Volume 7 you have subtle-unsubtle yuribaiting because Roosterteeth's management clearly thinks that they're not diverse enough and so incline to the shippers.

So the questions to have are "What’s wrong with two girls being best friends?" and "Why do some fans of the show focus more on the ships than the actual show itself?"

Anyhow this' been my TED talk, come again soon and have a good night.

I feel like the show gets unfairly criticized too much, yes it has problems, especially after the passing of Monty Oum, but people jump on the creators for every little thing to an autistic level. Recently the official account for the series made 2 reaction image replies to the Fortnite Naruto Shippuden skin announcement; of Blake being disapproving and Ruby saying hi, implying an offer to also be used for skins that had ben denied. There had been no text and it'd been an innocuous response at worst. The Naruto fandom itself has been split between hating and liking the announcement and so has everyone else on social media. Yet the moment the team for RWBY make a single post, people go bananas and start making clickbait videos and posts about them being pathetic and so on. Frankly the sheer toxicity of the response is far more pathetic than the post being dramatized: the hypocrisy and whininess really demonstrates that most "fans" and social media users are very negative people seeking any excuse to bitch about something or someone. I don't do social media - have next to no account and don't use them, but shit pops up on my RADAR on occasion, so I thought I'd post about it here.

This little debacle makes me think: If you hate something this much why are you going to kill time bitching about a small social media post unless your life is so meaningless and empty as to need it?

The problem I have with Adam/White Fang/ Faunus potential isn't even necessarily with Adam and his death like some people say. Its the fact that he was supposed to be this super popular leader of this fraction of the Faunus and by the time he's dead, we don't really see that influence at all. Like especially in Atlas/Mantle, which is supposed to be the place where the Faunus are treated the worst, forced to take these dangerous mining jobs. You would think that Adam's ideology would be the most prevalent. But instead, we have Robyn Hill, which is basically a baby version of Adam." We will do bad things to get our way, but fundamentally, we strive to be non violent". And yes, Adam did get more sadist as the show went on but, that could play into the ideology no. Fundamentally, the difference between Adam and Robyn is that Robyn uses violence as a last resort while Adam, its a tool. So it would have been interesting if Blake and the rest had to deal with the fact that "hey, Adam may be gone but his ideas aren't and are in fact super fucking popular". And maybe theres a radical faction within Mantel called the Adamist or Blood Fang, and they go around basically doing terrorism while wearing grimm masks like Adam. The problem I think ultimately, is they were just all out of juice in the Faunus department. You already had to deal with Faunus shit basically from Vol 4-5 and then Adam shit in Vol 6, which was barebones lets be honest, he "showed up" to scare Blake and Yang a few times and then the final confrontations and then death. They had to deal with all that, and maybe redoing Faunus shit would have been seen them retreading ground. Which is why they don't really acknowledge it, just refering it all as "Mantle", without specifying that Faunus probably make up a good chunk and the most shit on

Rooster-teeth has announced a new logo for its 20th… it's shit. looks like a bad ripoff of the Kellogg's cereal logo. The trend of aggressive oversimplification of logos using basic shapes, no shading and 2-3 colors pisses me off as a graphic designer, the blue text on red background. Yet another reason for Monty to turn over in the grave.

https://archive.is/E4lFg
Complexity watered down past simplicity, real representative of the current company, as if the Warner Bros meddling isn't enough.

The original logo goes back to RvB & the cockbite gag, thus the Rooster (Cock) & chattering teeth (bite + a comedic prank item).

Thing is, is this PTSD should have come to head way earlier than Volume 9, at least for Ruby. The entire group keeps forgetting that in spite of being an accomplished fighter… she's 2 years younger than any of them & honestly just a kid that has gone through the wringer emotionally, yet has had to man-up to support her friends every time they suffer, & they all seem to forget that she's suffering too. Honestly ever since Volume 3 the series has felt like it's become the "Break Ruby's Soul" show, with her positive attitude an initial naïve innocence being brutally stamped on over & over again with little hope to look forward to.

It does in the context of maturity, schooling, enjoyment of childhood etc. Ruby is not only engaged in battles that she shouldn't need to be engaging in until she's 4 years older (than current), but is also responsible in leading a battle team of older girls that are supposed to be more mature during a bunch of worst-case scenarios. Remembering my own teens, the mental change from 15-16 to 17-18 can be significant.
>The others are not holding up much better either
True
- Jaune: He's clearly gone off the deep end because of his guilt over Penny & Pyrrha. But for him it's been a lot longer since his failures.
- Weiss: She honestly seems to be the closest to fine, the lack of close family bonds seems to have made the SDC's fall not so impactful as it ought to be. Its the reason that she's been more of a sister to Ruby than Yang in recent episodes.
- Blake n' Yang: These 2 are honestly the least mature of the group, it's irritating to see them behave like a poor parody of a couple, with Blake trying to run from every hard situation, & Yang throwing herself into them, dragging the team into this crappy teen drama. RT should have kept the idea of team RWBY being about sisterhood and friendship & not attempted this terrible ship. But nah, Yang & Blake kill a bovine together so apparently they're married in all but paper.

However the issue is that the other characters recognize & support the other… except for Ruby; she's just getting ignored, then after breaking down, treated like SHE'S the inconsiderate one. Except even in her own rant, Ruby admits everyone else's issues, she just wants some support of her own this time. After all for Ruby (unlike Jaune) it's been barely 1 week since the bomb plot, the fall of Atlas, Penny's second (likely permanent) death & the failure of another Hail Mary plan against Cinder/Salem, all under her presumed leadership. Adult military commanders have shot themselves in shame over the guilt of such failures, it's little wonder a girl like Ruby is falling apart.

Speaking of Superman, There's a crossover with DC that people are going apeshit over, mostly because Blake tells batman not to wok alone & to stop being negative. She's not incorrect… except for this coming from Blake. & then right after Yang inserts some horny comment… that makes no sense & isn't even a pun FFS.

Funniest thing is that the TMNT x Batman movie had the same situation, one loner (Raphael) telling another loner (Batman) to not abandon everyone to do the impossible by yourself. See, Raph used himself as an example and admitted that fighting alone isn’t always the right option; sometimes you need a team (a major theme of RWBY).

The panel makes it seem like Blake is just dunking on him without referring to herself as an example. If she mentioned how she ran away cause she figured fighting the White Fang gang alone was the only way only to realize its too much and she needed trusted help, this interaction would’ve worked a lot better.

Also the audacity of this coming from Blake who fled Beacon after her teammate had her arm cut off by her ex. If she mentioned that and realized how fucked up it was to abandon them, it would’ve made Blake a solid character who learned from her mistakes and is trying to tell Batman he can’t just solo his problems.

Weiss is obviously the strongest and best of the team but I don't think she's anywhere near fine, she's pretty clearly very frustrated and tired. It can be seen in how she behaves and she also made some comments here and there, like when they were fleeing from the market. I don't expect her to have a meltdown but her reaction to the situation seems a lot more realistic than Blake and Yang who seem to have completely forgotten just how deep the shit is that they have gotten themselves into. That's why my charitable interpretation is that the sudden discovery of their mutual attraction is how they cope and try to distract themselves. Even thought it is probably just bad writing.

Extremely charitable for poor ship writing. It seems to be a recent trend in lesbian ships - 2 girl characters that have no sexual chemistry are mashed into a relationship that also alienates their friends & family in its toxicity. KorrAsami is an earlier example.
They've been "mutually attracted" for some time before Volume 9 almost forcibly so to the point that they no longer resemble themselves, they're like a crappy imitation of Raven & Tai, except Raven & Tai's behaviors had real reasons (fear of Salem & Ozpin's manipulations for Raven, the loss of Summer soon after Raven left for Tai).

Why not? The Grimm aren't really sentient, even in a true animal sense, & although she controls them & can see through them, she can't finely manipulate them on a mas scale, not to mention it takes time. Besides human agents are useful for infiltration & their Aura/Semblances let them fight better than most Grimm of similar size.
Besides, ancient & intelligent she may be, but she still needs people like Watts to handle technology. Tyrian, Hazel & later Mercury are her mad dogs to cause chaos.

>the nonexistent filler in the first 2
I disagree. Vol 1 & 2 introduced us to the initial setting & got the team to open up to each other & the audience, bonding as they did, while preparing future plot points. Monty had an entire Bible of ideas for many volumes that is supposedly being followed, although I'm of the belief that the Bible was just his base ideas, since I'm sure he hadn't expected to die before he could write them out.
Volume 3 began the payoff of the buildup in the first 2 Volumes, establishing the stakes & essentially being the come-of-age moment for the team in The Fall of Beacon. But after they just undermined it, failed to pick up properly, not paying off hints or concepts, etc. It only got worse after. The base story is functional, but the problems that arise can be boiled down to
A) PIS - Plot induced Stupidity
B) CIS - Character-Induced Stupidity
C) WIS - Writer Induced Stupidity
D) various combinations of the above

Thus Atlas' Military is both a laughably liberal portrayal of dictatorship, while also being incompetent for some reason & the White Fang stop existing after Adam is sacrificed on the altar of Bumbleby.

>a recent trend in lesbian ships - 2 girl characters that have no sexual chemistry are mashed into a relationship that also alienates their friends & family in its toxicity.
Honestly thinking about it, the 2 "popular" yuri ships are Yang/Blake & Ruby/Weiss. But neither of those are good ships in terms of writing of characters. Yang/Blake is like every dysfunctional lesbian relationship, & the other 2 are clearly true friends. Yang had chemistry with the Schnee princess, one a brash, unfiltered rough n' tumble girl, the other a hard-ass perfectionist. Yang smoothed Weiss' sharp edges with he bluntness & penchant for humor, easily ignoring the pale girls prickly nature. If you HAD to have a dynamic that isn't pure friendship, those 2 are the ones that functioned in a Yin Yang sort of way. Instead Blake had her character become this strangely submissive person that go against her supposed character progress.
Instead we get generic bad teen drama #435

Funniest part is the Jaune reaction the writers inserted; Jaune: "Feels like I've been waiting forever for that!"
Since when has Jaune talked to Blake or Yang for more than a minute? When has Jaune been close to either of these two, let alone together? Jaune's closest connection to someone in RWBY is Ruby, hell, he knows her so well that her reaction to him giving her Crescent Rose, stops his angry rant because he can see (better than anyone else apparently) that Ruby is deeply hurt. This is like if I went back to my highschool in 20 years, saw two of my sister’s friends kissing and I was like "I've been waiting forever for that!"

Nothing. But Sienna isn't (in the actual world) a minor character. She's an extreme counterpart to Ghira, & one of the leaders of the Faunus, & THE leader of the White Fang. Her plotline is just nixed because, outside of Monty's concept of her character the rest of CRWBY just made her a throwaway to toss aside, because they didn't feel like finishing the potential.

She should have been a key into letting us see a new and morally grey side to the WF arc (thus the posts ITT talking about Adam & the Faunus being poorly implemented). Otherwise what is Blake even trying to save? If all we see are extremists; what have we been shown that indicates there is even anything there other then a terrorist organization filled with unrepentant bad guys. Introducing a character for the first time that has serious prior impact and ties to the proper story (In this case Sienna does, being the leader of the White Fang) only to have them talk for a few minutes then have an already bad character kill them to speed along the story without any build-up is the definition of lazy writing. Sienna wasn't Tuskon, a simple named informant that is offed to set the tone for Emerald and Mercury, who were also being introduced at the same time. She was the declared leader of the Fang that - with no real explanation (aside from being told Adam is popular) - has everyone, including her own personal guards turn on her, and then die like fodder, despite being an experienced fighter.

When you think about it, it's kind of fucked up that they wrote a "you can't get out unless you fuck" doujin contrivance into the story so that Yang and Blake would end up together. Like wowzers talk about your toxic relationships, once more Blake gets the trophy wife without ever having to actually do anything on her own, and the trophy wife gets thrown into a compromising situation where her own personality and wishes don't matter. Pretty easy to develop your characters when you literally yeet them into another dimension that shapes around the specific arcs you need them to go through. Even then you can't think of any reason why Yang and Blake actually like each other.

If that had happened, it'd still be better than introducing a character in flesh to then kill them off. It's inane.

Relying on porn & fanfics to tell a better story proves my point.
> Ozpin and Ironwood are actually relevant to the plot, she was not
Yes, she is, because SHE is the Fang's leader who replaced Ghira as a radical, but one that balanced it for the self-interest of the movement, unlike Adam's bloodthirsty extremism. Her role in the story gets cut off & in turn makes the White Fang irrelevant - one of the main antagonists of the story beheaded & made into fodder. FFS this literally provides an entire avenue of factional conflict in the Fang that just gets left behind, even though the faunus aren't just going to vanish from the storyline.

This is crap writing, & has little to no defense.

A BIT off topic, but since HGS sort of appeared ITT (& in /co/'s RWBY threads) I thought I'd mention that the character Parsley (I had to look the name up) - the blonde, no-nonsense hammer-carrying dwarf feels like a combination of Nora Valkyrie & Jaune Arc.
- Blonde, & lots of siblings like Jaune.
- Hammer user, perky & no-nonsense (& short) like Nora.

In the past? Monty Oum not dying. Not saying it would be perfect, but the guy knew what he was doing & the general direction to take things (most concepts, plotlines & ideas in the series are his, but the further from Vol 2/3 you go, the less development had been given to them & the more freedom to write for CRWBY). RWBY as a series is influenced by Shonen anime & Final Fantasy, the latter in part because of Oum's enjoyment of it, & hi use of characters like Tifa in Dead Fantasy. In the shonen aspect (for example) Jaune particularly was a Cloud inspiration.

And although Ruby's character & the teams make up is more like various Naruto characters (originally), the story itself has no concrete goals at the start; Ruby is not looking to become Pirate King, Hokage or reconstruct the Shikon jewel. Like Bleach* the story lacks a stated end goal the main character seeks to achieve from the start, other than a vague sense of being a hero that saves people something that's getting dismantled in Vol 9 thus the story & characters meander, & if the original author isn't there to point the direction… it's likely not going to be very good

At this point like >>18975 says, nothing can really save the series short of maybe just going full memelord.

Since we saw the herbalist turn beautiful, does that mean that Ruby will come back looking like Weiss?

Actually, my prediction is that Ruby will come back stronger and better but is still easily defeated by Neko (a portmanteau of Neo and Neko (nihongo for cat), get it?), but when the cat leaves Neo's body to enter Ruby's, leaving Neo to regain consciousness and notice that Ruby is still alive, so she tries to finish the job, but the cat would not like that and tries to stop her before she can enter Ruby and they fight to death while the gang sneak home behind their backs.

There's no reason for that, he just needs a Remnant body to possess Ruby had been a target for her broken psyche. After Ascension she's not even going to be herself (some people are claiming she'll become Summer, though that's nonsense) she's not going to be broken anymore, so CopyCat isn't going to be able to do anything.

Huh, but the cat also can't possess someone unwilling/unable to spiritually resist though, thus the fixation on Ruby & later taking of Neo. Making the cat just a Vol9 character is going to be pretty lame if they have that. Also if Neo has nothing to return for, & has essentially a shattered ego, then why would she fight the cat after it possibly releases her? It'd be strange but more likely Jaune might save Neo.

Neo thought she got her revenge. If she saw that Ruby returned, her revenge failed and maybe her will to kill could return too. Since the cat wants Ruby alive and she wants her dead, they would get in conflict. So if the cat left her body, Neo could fight it over Ruby's destiny. Or maybe they could do that thing where the possessed person regains control over their body just for a short second but at the decisive moment, saving the heroes by giving them time to get away or something. It would be a way to make Neo help them without actually helping them, a way to "redeem" her without having to actually change her ways. But I don't think it will actually happen, you are right that it wouldn't work if Ruby got mended by the blacksmith.

I guess, but I'm not holding my breath

Spoiler prediction:
The Summer Rose bait at the end of ep9 is going to be a bait n switch; Ruby has the thing Naruto does with Kushina in the seal - talking to her mother's spirit before overcoming herself - then finding her strength to be reborn as a better self. Jaune, because of him being the buttmonkey of CRWBY, is going to probably be a hero one last time, taking a killing blow or something to let the rest of RWBY leave the EverAfter. Hopefully Ruby's catharsis is going to be a la Gurren Lagan "Be the best version of yourself that you can be".

Nobody seems to mention how shes a Bengal Tiger Faunus with a hindu pottu and a Muslim last name. It's real organic representation, as she is a radical civil rights activist who takes action, and comes from a mixed religious/cultural reference (a combination of Bengali, Hindu, and Islam) and encompasses the "war borne from love and necessity" motif that Indians are known for and are proud of. Khan specifically means "ruler", and the concept is a reference to Shere Khan from The Junglebook, and the fact she's based off the jungle book only strengthens her being representative of India, because as far as I'm aware she's the only Indian character in the show.

She's the Boba Fett of RWBY; Awesome character idea SUPPOSED to be a background character. Yet the fans love her a lot more than what was expected. If she WERE to be alive, then we would've gotten a lot more of her

The original from the comics is Hal Jordan, but later came other human Green Lanterns, including the black man Jon Stewart, that you refer to.

It's not that simple. I mean yeah porn is an appeal, but to be honest RWBY is something that originates from old-school machinima & internet in general. A passion project of a small group of people that became something fairly popular. It's a mess of a story but still sucks you in if you get on the ride. The memes, the potential of the worldbuilding, the varied characters are all attractive for people, even if its not always executed well in Canon.

Spoilers for Vol 9 Ep10!

So this most recent volume confirms that the Brothers were in fact second generation gods and the Tree was the Primordial (albeit, indifferent) deity of the RWBY-verse. The Dragons are basically Demiurges who keeps creating worlds and fill it with 'people' only for their works to slowly degrade and fail to function.

Remnant (Definition: a part or quantity that is left after the greater part has been used, removed, or destroyed.) is itself a case study in this. Humanity was once capable to cast magic, but after rebelling against their creators each individual was left with a single spell, called a Semblance (Definition: the outward appearance or apparent form of something, especially when the reality is different.).

The Blacksmith makes it clear the door between worlds was left open for the Brothers to return, but they clearly haven't. So they aren't in the Everafter and they aren't in Remnant. They are out in the cosmos, once again trying to build world that won't break.

Maybe it's a never ending daisy chain of universes that are empty or abandoned, that get occupied by the Brothers, structured after their whims or experimental desires and either destroyed or abandoned as they move on to the next.

Honestly I preferred that the Ever After be another of their creations rather than the Brothers' origin.

PSA: You are now being made aware that Blake and Yang being romantic was a literal product of the "Suspension Bridge Effect". In what is quite possibly the most on the nose and blunt manner, I've seen. It's as though MKEK read about it and thought it had to unironically and absolutely be a suspended bridge in order to work. The suspension bridge effect is a scientific and psychological term used to describe a biological reaction in our psychology when we are under pressure. When we experience external stimulus that ignites our adrenal response, it plays a strange role in our minds and interpreting our environment.

The Suspension Bridge Effect is also known as the “misattribution of arousal.” It’s a phenomenon stating that something looks better when under a pressure environment, like standing on a suspension bridge.

Are you referring to RWBY or Pootis Engage? If the latter then of course not, it's just a demonstration of proper 2D-imitating animation techniques.

RWBY is almost literally taking Video Game graphics and turning it into an anime. It's sort of the reverse of what a lot of the 3D Playstation games were doing for anime, to make them into video games.

Yes, because of the constraints of Poser.
>Which is worse actually
To each their own, it's janky, yes, but considering that it's a bunch of people in the early 2010s using free software to make an indie project for fun, it's decent work, far above the likes of many SFM videos being made at the time. It has a flawed charm to it. Later they switched to Maya from V4 onward and have been improving animation and art quality ever since. The main thing about RWBY that attracted people wasn't how high res the animation was, it was the concept of Cute Girls Fighting and the amazing choreography of Monty Oum in a brand new, non-manga based animated series.

I watched this show when it was on youtube for a while. It was like I wanted to hurt myself. It was so bad. The animation was poor. The voice acting was the worst of Americanizing weeb shit. The writing was god awful. The fight scenes were cool at first (duh, it was animated by the dead guy known for fight scenes) but no one ever died. All the episodes were like one scene long.

I can't think of anything else I'd watch if I wanted to cause myself more pain.

Uh, no. The vast majority of fights in RWBY have limited talking. What scene did your friend show you?
>my definition of a good action scene
>Children of men
1) It's an animated fantasy show it being super realistic is counter to the point, your complaint makes more sense in regards to something like Weiss Kreuz Eternal, where they use CQC, even when it makes more sense to use firearms, and half the conflicts/deaths wouldn't happen if the main characters fought realistically.
2) That's not typically what is meant by "action", yes it is technically an action scene, but it's not a fight scene, or even a proper firefight by the main characters, but more like a "person in a chaotic scenario" type situation. There's some Chinese military films that actually are realistic action, but that's a different matter entirely. It's not really fair to compare what is essentially a martial arts + swords + guns + "magic" fighting series to a grounded realistic fight, it's like comparing a fight from ANY cartoon ever and complaining about superhuman fighting, like that's the point - it's cool looking, there's not much more to it than that.

I enjoy grounded action, but I'm not looking for that in a show that clearly is not meant to be about that, you can like 2 wildly different things, I can enjoy a cheesy action flick by Jackie Chan yet also appreciate his more serious films, because they're different genres of interest.

RWBY is by no means a great show, it's got tons of flaws, but it's fun because taking it seriously is just as retarded as taking Dragon Ball seriously or treating capeshit seriously; you're meant to enjoy the entertainment, and if it's not for you, there's no point bitching about it, there's a million other properties that you may enjoy instead.

I really don't like shipping characters, it's completely pointless. Really distracts from the enjoyment of the show as a story.

Why is it necessary for every story to have a romantic subplot? Every character has to have some romantic or sexual attraction for who knows what reason other than wish fullfillment perhaps. It's all due to the fetishization of love prevailent within our culture, love becomes not just a regular part of one's life but something that should be activily sought for, without which the life is thought of as unfullfilling and meaningless (unconscious egoists, SMH).

>How are they different from any other shippers?
My dude, are you new? There's a reason Fujoshi, Fudanshi and to an extent Himedanshi, are considered the worst sort of shippers in RWBY and anime in general, because
A) They tend to be fetishizers that literally represent the cringe of the "UwU/OwO" meme (far more than most straight shippers)
B) It's almost always unfounded on any sort of character interaction or story themes, and 90% of the time feels forced
C) It just comes off as vulgar modern shit; "2 people have a healthy, real friendship? THEY MUST BE FUCKING!" And you see this more with yuri ships and yaoi ships than straight ones.

Within RWBY you only have to look at the pure cancer of WhiteRose and Bumbleby shippers; it's all either lust-based fapbait or libshit. Shippers in general can be cancerous, but I will take Lancaster and RoseGarden and even WhiteKnight Shippers over any of the Yuriships.

Adam was wasted potential personified. Especially since he's set up to the villain that haunts Yang and Blake, since Cinder is the villain the hangs over Jaune, Ruby and Weiss. Adam going from a calm killer to an flailing murderer is inane. He should have been a terminator or slasher like figure, nearly unstoppable, his faunus senses far outstripping most of their own, his experience in weapons overshadowing theirs, his ability to disappear and mercilessly hunt them. Hell, he's a perfect candidate for someone jaded enough to get recruited directly into Salem's circle. But nah, lets just do lame drama and an absolutely pathetic fight.

A really good post on the contrasting the chilling persona of V3 and the hysteric we get after being so dissapointing.

I realized that in the lead up to that volume, they had a whole teaser short dedicated to him. Like, usually when you have these shorts, like the red/yellow/black/white trailers, it supposed to tease for the next volume and their possible points of interest and conflict. Hell, right below this trailer in recommended was the trailer for Weiss in the lead up to the next volume (5) . Whether you think its good or bad, at least she plays some role in the story and the short is appropriate to give more context to where she comes from. But with Adam, he shows up at the end, and its all about Blake and his obsession with her. Nothing of the short, which is basically about the conflicting factions of the White Fang, play a role in him confronting Blake. At best, you get the shot of him reminding Blake of what humans are capable of (aka, his branded eye). But that's less a warning to Blake and more trying to guilt trip her. Maybe it would have been better if he realized he lost his way about the mission and decided to end his obsession with killing Blake, for his own peace of mind and for betraying the White Fang. At least then, it makes sense why he decided to continue following them without making him the generic psycho stalker ex boyfriend.

THIS. I'd also like to clarify by the "pathetic fight" I'm more referring to certain portions of his end and his V5 face off against Blake.

Also I'd like to note that the Test Footage of Monty's Adam vs Yang fight was interesting and the fight standard Monty quality, but to be quite frank I prefer the canon fight in terms of it being a shocking, unexpected one-shot, since it set up Adam's dangerous character and his power being above the likes of Team RWBY. It's because of this dangerous and serious display of Adam's character that his character got fans and why Adamfags were so furious with his castration post V3. Going from a edgy, frightening villain with a dark presence and becoming a seething incel that was far too pathetic to be leading a revolutionary/terrorist group.

The drawn out fight is well choreographed as usual, and very cool, but it fails to have the sheer impact of the canon disarming of Yang. They took Monty's animation later and used it for the fight where Yang and Blake kill him

Well I was partly correct although the Naruto-esque moment isn't quite her meeting her mother's soul, though she did accept herself (still wish she'd been aged up into grown Ruby, would have made for a good visual metaphor). Jaune got blasted by Weiss, but no sacrifice moment really happened.

>Making another crossover between DC and RWBY only worse
The current run RWBY x DC comics began in Febuary and are still going as of July 2023 and it just keeps getting worse. It's plot is inane, the art style is just garbage and don't even get me started on the dialogue. Also ironically in Issue 4 they accidentally confirmed the joke about RWBY being the horsemen of the apocalypse.

In terms of character designs the DC folk look okay but RWBY just looks terrible; Ruby looks okayish even with the dorky goggles, and Weiss is mostly unchanged (other than that strange scar stylization) but why did they think Yang and Blakes costumes were any good at all here? Yang looks like a poorly done Silver Age (of comics) Scarlet Witch and Blake like a particularly lazy Catwoman cosplayer, which clashes terribly with the Modern Age designs of the DC-verse characters.

I really don't know why they did that, especially since Ren didn't even do anything that bad to Nora even if he was an arse, and they literally kissed and made up. Feels contrived. The JL crossover movies Ren/Cyborg jealousy that Nora eggs on also feels OOC, even if it leads to some funny memes.

Part 2 got announced a few days ago with a teaser image (pic rel). It's gonna be released on Ruby's birthday (October 31st). I'm just hoping they don't exclude/side-show Jaune and the rest of JNR in this, because that would suck after the KnightLight build-up in the first one. JNR is listed to be in the film, so there's that. The RWBY-verse antagonist is probably Watts, though possibly Merlot may make an appearance instead, which would be fun.

The original comic-run is no help in guessing since Starro was the main antagonist there, it was actually a physical Justice League transplanted/merged into the RWBY-verse instead of a VR in Volume 7-8 and it actually takes place somewhere between Volume 2 and 3 sort of like Ice Queendom, evident by Pyrrha being alive, although JNPR are mostly cameo appearances instead. That being said it's still fun. I'm guessing/hoping that Part 2 is going to have the RWBY-verse physically transfer over to the DC-verse.

I mean there is the leak from pic rel, which doesn't appear in Vol 9 at all, even in the deleted scenes content release, so it's very possible that they've started it, but the JL crossover is prioritized and so they're probably going to Greenlight it officially after the second film is released. Considering the arc pacing, it is logical to conclude that either Volume 10 is going to be longer to make up for V9 being shorter than usual, or they might just pull into a Vol 11.

Also RTX-2023 also showed some storyboard teasers for Vol 10 which were probably intended to be an epilogue finale for Volume 9 but clearly are going to lead into the next volume instead. Volume 10 is obviously gonna involve the Summer Maiden, since that's the only one unexplored and it's possible there'll be a Summer Rose tie-in (because names, duh). Raven is probably gonna do some self-sacrifice bullshit to "redeem" her and the power of the Spring Maiden is probably going to go to Yang, although alternatively they could have Cinder get all the maiden powers and turn on Salem… though that might just be my imagination running ahead of me. I have doubts MKEK could pull that off. CRWBY hasn't been at its best in recent times.

One thing I'm honestly surprised and disappointed in the lack of is Grimmified characters, it is so unbelievably hard to find a fic with a Grimm Ruby or Grimm Summer or grimm anyone (which is strange considering that it's been a fan theory/idea for a long time). Especially after the reveal of the Grimm Hound being based on a Silver-eyed Faunus and Cinder's Grimm arm which I would have thought as perfect food for fanfic material. The only contender for these would be some Grimm-turned-human fics, but even those are scarce and rarely well written. In terms of fan-art there's only slightly more than fics and not all of it is good either.

The number of fics I've found is barely 2 dozen or so and they're wildly disappointing, considering the sheer number of RWBY fanfics there are. I can only recommend 3 of them, all Jaune focused which are pretty good. If anyone knows of any others please link them.

3 fics I recc:
1) https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13191717/1/My-Abominable-Monster-Classmates-Can-t-Be-This-Cute The initial story prompt is basically Rosario Vampire, but it becomes something wildly different and pretty interesting
2) https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13965520/1/Where-a-Heart-Once-Was This one really goes all out in branching off the canon timeline and doesn't hold back at all in terms of both imaginative Grimm and the horrific nature of battle. It also doesn't play around with Grimmification like most fics, so it's not just a 'humanoid grimm' but a monsterous grimm, built on the twisted remains of a human killed by Salem (I won't spoil who).
3) https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12778468/1/Jaune-s-Grimm-hand kinda has some aspects from the plot of Parasyte but with a well-meshed twist by making it Grimm related and impact the plot of the story, giving Jaune unexpected and unique abilities and problems.

Supposedly that's what the Menagerie Arc is but frankly the closest we get to that is Sun pointing out her abandonment of her friends and later after getting hurt by Illia, that her friends would make their own choice on whether they could stand behind her and shutting them out hurts them more than any wound (corny but a neat line), and then she just joins them again and then everything after that is about her Yang fetish and mending that relationship suddenly, throwing an entire 2 Volume's worth of BlackSun bait onto the rocks… not because she realized that Sun was right but because the White Fang forced her hand.

On a different note, Raven should have been more Asian looking (especially considering her touhou Reimu + samurai based attire) and subsequently Yang should have been half-asian looking. Or have it be a switcharoo - make Tai the asian one with Western LARP and Raven a samurai 2hu LARPer. I still like Yang's original design, but it's just a thought that occurred to me. It would fit the "yakuza delinquent" vibe she had originally.

Avatar the Last Airbender has dislike among the Japanese because the Fire Nation is very clearly a depiction of Meiji era Japan, with all the fascist industrial-capitalist aspects it had. The Japanese post-1990s, have become very allergic to negative depictions of Ancient Japan and Japan in general, thus films and series that revealed the ugly side of Japan's feudal and imperial past (Seven Samurai, Zatoichi, Inuyasha, Princess Mononoke) are no longer common, and in general such works have become niche, because it's an informal taboo. For similar, nationalist reasons the Nanking Massacre (which the wiping out of the Air Nomads is similar to) is ignored. Ironically RWBY is partially influenced by ATLA according to Miles Luna.

TL;DR: ATLA reminds the Japanese of their country's past misdeeds.

If your typically burger exaggeration of quotation marks for the sake of pretentiously overbearing sarcasm is implying the RWBY aped off of ATLA, then you've clearly seen neither.

Very little of RWBY's main features is like ATLA, you can vaguely say that the concept of 4 kingdoms of different regions that the main cast travel and visit for various plot arcs references ATLA, but even that is very vague, there are some elements glimmering through, but nothing more than that.

And they showed a lot of unfinished stuff from the end of Vol 9 which would actually make for a good Volume 10 beginning, I've posted it in the thread. I think that RT is going to work on V10 a bit on the side but concentrate on the JL crossover which comes out on Halloween and is their next big project. I'm predicting an announcement for V10 around then and a release date probably in mid-late 2024, going by previous history.

I think it is pretty obvious from the opening that the final boss fight of the season is going to be Robot Gurl being hacked by Ernest Khalimov and turning against the cast and absolutely fucking wrecking them with god powers. I assume that either Ren or Nora is getting murked and / or turning on everyone else. The opening also leads me to assume this is probably the penultimate chapter of the story / the "all is lost" section of the hero's journey. with the next season probably being the final. An actual subversion of expectations would just be killing the entire main cast and then centring on a group of heroes like 50 years in the future whose names also start with R W B and Y. would be funny and daring.

Seriously, fanfiction depictions of her make her a more likeable character. I know the early season depictions were just Monty following anime tropes for Weiss as the rich girl with a hard-ass older sister who's better than her, but the more we see of Winter, the less I like her.

Anyone notice that Pomni is kinda like Ruby in V9? Slowly losing her mind, and going psychotic in the crazy world she finds herself trapped in?

Last updates were in >>21062 and the screencap I thought was from V10 >>20623 is actually from the JL crossover Part II. However JL 2 does take place after Volume 9 so the mistake is understandeable. It makes the lack of Jaune in the actual crossover all the more annoying though, considering the aspect of him essentially being a middle-aged man in the body of a 19 year old and having suffered quite a bit more since his initial meeting with the Justice League and Jess.

I think Volume 10 is going to be the end of the series unless Warner decides to reboot it. As seen earlier in the thread RoosterTeeth V10 story boarding exists somewhat so I think that they'll do a crowdfunding campaign to get the extra money and wrap the story up in a short Volume like #9, with some sloppy resolution probably using a Deus Ex Machina to beat Salem, then slap on a Myers epilogue book after. It's not what I'd wish for the series but realistically that's the cards we see for RWBY'd future.

Roosterteethis letting go creators of various branches, such as DeathBattle. The decline of the company is honestly depressing, more through how its impacting the things under their umbrella such as RWBY than anything else.

Demand them to put RWBY under copyleft or into public domain under a threat of mail delivery to the members of their board of directors.

Anon, they get death threats every day, that's not going to stop them from sinking their ship and taking all their properties with them. Both in the copyright way and in writing their stories into the ground out of sheer contrarianism.

But the homophobic Ruby meme made a lot of people aware of the show, that must be a good thing, right?

Catpiss has been baited ham-fistedly since Volume 6. The Ruby meme only came about in Volume 9. It was only this funny because of how tone deaf and bad the writing had become by that point.

>>22978
Many such cases (KorrAsami, MaKorra, CatrAdora, StarCo, all the ships of the Voltron: Legendary Defender series, etc.)
They drove most of the plots and just killed the story, leading to retarded things happening.
