nth for the dynamics in the picture being confirmed
Think of your Waifu.
She just got killed by your number 2. How, why, what do?
Jesus Christ how horrifying
Symbiote Grimm when?
Neo would be up there, all those acrobatics and flexibility.
I honestly don't know but I'm going to say Weiss anyway. Her feet would be nice and cold.
>Blake was the first of Team RWBY to come in contact with Cinder and her group even if it wasn't directly.
>Ruby kills Emerald.
> How, why
Ideally, this would be Emerald trying to stall Ruby to give Cinder time to prepare her final move.
I don't think that Ruby would willingly kill anybody, though, so it would be Emerald refusing to stop attacking until she is fatally wounded by Cresent Rose.
All while remembering how Cinder pulled how out of life on the street, and how she can't let anybody hurt her one friend.
Man, with the bandages on Merc's legs, it's actually the first time we see blood in the series ever since the White trailer (or if you count it, the scar Jaune got post-Aura handjob from Phyrra)
Anyone who says there's no such thing as pure evil is, in fact, evil.
I love Weiss and her cool embrace!
>Adam caved and started offering up faunus lives as soon as he was threatened
>Didn't have the balls to die for his ideals and his people
Well, at least now why know why Blake always runs from her problems. She learnt from the best.
Also another thing, Cinder's still a cardboard cutout when it comes to characterization, with us never getting a reason for her actions outside the most generic shonen answer of "I wanna be strong"
She likes to see you squirm both out of fear and arousal
But mostly fear.
Well there's that snuff greentext floating around somewhere for starters
I wish some of Girls for M artist would do a Neo dom manga/doujin.
Id be ok with her Doming Yang.
Oh? i need to find that. whos the one getting snuffed?
Realistic question: What do you WANT to happen in this show?
>Girls for M
For some big business or the nips to buy the rights and make a way better version of this show.
Also a Neo/Roman spin off would be pleasant
But what does that entail in this case? Do I need to buy the blunderbuss? Or is it really so simple as 'memorize the timing of every attack he has and pray he doesn't shoot you instead'?
It's not about the money, it's about the idea
For example, a smut written post episode 6 about Neo transformed as Yang femdoming hospitalisted Mercury is what got me to draw the Yang FJ picture.
He didn't even attempt to fight Cinder and co, or avenge his fallen comrades.
How can you respect a leader that isn't willing to die for his cause after sending others to their deaths?
Getting the parries isn't that hard, once you figure out the general window for parries that most attacks in Bloodborne have. You said if you had a shield it would be no problem, but I'm guessing you're just one of those turtlefags who just hides and waits forever instead of using it to get parries like a man.
If he fought Cinder more of his comrades would die. I imagine Adam is burning with rage on the inside but is maintaining his composure because he knows what kind of power Cinder has.
I wouldn't be surprised if he's the one who strikes her down once she's been weakened though.
Weiss and Emerald to actually fight like the intro's have been teasing. Weiss realizes/knows Emerald's semblance is illusions and summons the giant knight to fight for her, since constructs aren't affected by illusions.
The ideas and images going through my head right now
He didn't know the kind of power she had, all he knows is he walked outside, she made fire in front of him, and a lot of his comrades were dead or injured, with three people he could see.
He didn't even attempt to fight her or test her strength he submitted.
So you just need good writing too get you going something like Neo Nurse taking advantage of her newly obtained Nurse outfit to play with some students she sedatives so they can't move.
Well, now I'm out of molotov cocktails. So that failed miserably, thanks. Fuck if I know what the guy in the video did, but when I got him to transform and started chucking molotovs they always whiffed.
And yes, I was locked onto him.
To start over and slow the pace way the fuck down and have more logical consistency in the writing and setting rather then rushing through everything.
Also stop using conventional ideas for framing, it is a web show, some episodes can be longer then others, some can be shorter, you don't need to have a set number of episodes a season, hell you don't even really need seasons.
More character development for the core cast, especially for RWBY.
Less focus on the metaplot and more focus on the characters.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA– A large sweaty crowd of men have camped outside Crunchyroll headquarters with a simple demand: pull the critically acclaimed RWBY from the website. The group claims that the series should not be considered an anime, and therefore shouldn’t be hosted on an anime streaming site. For two days protesters have kept a vigilant watch over Crunchyroll’s offices, effectively holding its employees hostage inside.
“We won’t let them leave until our demands are met!” The protest’s ringleader, Andrew Hampfield, told the press, “If we start calling this travesty an anime, then we might as well give up on our culture as a whole!”
Anonymous reports have revealed dire conditions inside the office itself.
“They’ve let us order chinese food,” A Crunchyroll employee tweeted, “But they always steal the dumplings before the rest is brought up to us. We’re still getting paid overtime though, so at least there’s that.”
This protest has begun to affect other stream services. Netflix has already moved RWBY into their documentary section, hoping that it will remain hidden from the eyes of otaku. Other sites have taken a different approach and renamed the series Spice and Wolf III to disguise it as a legitimate anime.
But there are some that aren’t afraid to stand up against this hivemind of neckbeards. “It’s as much an anime as Touhou Project, Avatar, Kappa Mikey, Doctor Who, or anything that people sell or cosplay as at anime conventions. Anything can be an anime if you warp the definition enough,” an anonymous RWBY cosplayer told Anime Maru.
I only saw the first two seasons of RVB and that was when I was in highschool as they were airing then in the time between seasons 2 and 3 I sort of forgot it existed and have not gone back to re-watch it all.
I don't, personally.
The writer also had her first doing her rose petal thing after that fight, even though Ruby was doing that before she entered Beacon.
I'm not convinced Shirow has the tightest grip on RWBY's continuity, or he just doesn't care and is doing his own thing. Either way, that last chapter kinda turned me off the manga adaptation, a little.
This 16 minutes detailing how Cinder stole the maiden powers, how she met Emerald and Mercury, what Emerald's semblance is and why Mercury doesn't bother with leg day?
Yes, yes you did
Well that's ok as much as i love Neo, Nurse Neo is only great because of how little we have seen of her.
Of course i say that until Mojo or someone draws a crazy good Nurse Neo image.
I once got drunk and ate my big toe, can't say i miss it
Apparently at some point OP removed it like a retard and no one fixed it.
RWBY Manga (English): http://www13.zippyshare.com/v/kPLepyFe/file.html
>Blake was the first of Team RWBY to come in contact with Cinder.
Wish i could write something good to inspire someone like you to draw it.
I should just find a old foot fetish story and change the name too Neo.
That seems to be part of the plot for Grimm Eclipse.
I see enough of that in bad fanfiction.
Holy hell that episode was a wild ride.
It's really interesting to see the show's timeline take shape. Seems like Adam and Blake's train raid is kind of an important event, or at least there were interesting things going on around it. It'll be cool to see if the manga elaborates on it.
Also, damn. Mercury's pretty hardcore.
Anyone got any art of Amber, or the new outfits for Cinder, Mercury, and Emerald?
Also another thing, if Cinder's goal was to get to Amber, why didn't she do it on the night of he dance? She had the largest widow of opportunity to go bust into Ozpin's office and get Amber and get outski since via Merc and Emerald, she could know that Ozpin's, Ironwood, and Glynds were all at the dance and not have to worry about them knowing she was there
Unless for some reason the freeze tube for Amber is behind some sort of network security, to which I'd understand getting a hack into the CCT, but that could be more or less solved with an elbow to the glass tube too.
>Like...a cute puppy in lingerie!
Oh god not this again.
>tells Emerald it's too tight
>continues to tighten it once she's gone
When did Mercury become
tsundere for Emerald
She probably didn't know where Amber was, or how to get to her even if she did know. Remember she was in the secret Sub Sub Basement that only the inner circle knows about.
Because they murdered all the faunus construction workers.
So where'd Mercury's boots go during the Amber fight, and there?
Did they not bother to animate them over his robot legs? Maybe they thought it'd be confusing, like people were figure they were a part of his legs instead of a weapon he puts on them.
>Coco has made a habit of breaking in freshmen.
>She convinces Velvet to join in and 'help her'
>Coco notices that one of the freshmen for this semester is a Schnee
>She hasn't wanted anything more than to break in the Schnee girl
>Merc is Ray
>Emerald is Lana
>Cinder is Malory
>Roman is Archer
>Metal shotgun boots are less durable then metal legs
Besides, I really do think he WAS supposed to have them on, and they just didn't rig it for whatever reason. He shoots at Amber even though his legs don't have any part that looks like a gun on their own.
>Nurse Cinder and Nurse Neo will never give you a thorough examination.
Which RWBY character would do this to you? I say pent up Glynda would
Eh, I didn't really like her or Emerald's hair. I'm always up for new looks though.
No offense, but I wouldn't let Neo anywhere near me for "medical purposes"
Ironwood, and Penny is his artificial waifu
what does this mean?
Holy fuck I wasn't prepared for cyber-youske. Surprisingly good episode.
I don't know why but for some reason I'm afraid if RWBY actually gets really good it will loose most of its charm. Am I just an autist or do others feel the same ?
Pyrrha has a great VA and one who has been with RT for a long fucking time. They might have more flashbacks or some "I'm a new person in your head" gags, but Pyrrha is staying.
Or they change the voice based on who is in control.
>mfw i realized Mercury skipped leg day all togeather
Do you think we'll get DBZ/Naruto tier power levels with this magic and maiden stuff?
This. I forsee lots of split personality multiple voices in her head cutaways with her going forward once she gets the powers transferred to her.
How much do you want to bet she's going to see the fight where they attacked Amber and use that as the way to reveal merc/em/cinder as the enemy?
Her voice doesn't change in reality, they just change it for the sake of the audience to understand what is going on.
>Adam's voice acting was the worst.
Yeah, I think that was a combination of his VA initially having a really shit-quality mic to record his lines and the Black trailer being very rushed out the door
It's part of her tournament costume, hence why it is green (to match her eyes). Pic related.
I would have thought Neo being the pilot is a pretty obvious indication that she is not pretending to be Pyrrha. Pyrrha was at the far end of the vault as Yang/Merc match started, even if we assume Pyrrha left immediately after the camera cut to Cinder (unlikely) she would have had to walk all the way back to the elevator end of the vault (not like she can just sprint away in front of the brotherhood), ride the elevator all the way back up to ground level, sprint over to wherever they were keeping the ship, change clothes and fly to the stadium in the span of maybe 10 or 15 minutes.
It also just isn't a feasible idea. The chances of Neo (dressed as pyrrha) being seen by Pyrrha, or by someone who just saw Pyrrha someplace else are insanely high, and she also has to be around as her disguised form for the tournament.
>Grimm hybrids being their version of Arrancars
I see what you mean a little bit. If RWBY gits gud, I've "lost" a guilty pleasure of mine that I would always joke with my non-weeb friends about being the worst show I've ever loved.
But hey, here's to things getting good. The team surprised us.
Yeah that was my first thought but then I skipped over it figuring they'd leave the voice and change how Pyrrha's body and subtly change personality depending on whom is control.
They aren't going to fight something.
They are going to go set up the plan to sabotage the next tournament fight (very likely Cinder will line up Penny for the next fight and then hack into her systems to cause another, even greater uproar and send the grimm into an even worse frenzy).
Actually, Pyrrha could be seen looking uncomfortable next to Mercury in the initial 1v1 line up before the first match begins and she walks off to the side when Mercury and Yang are selected
I'd guess it's probably still impossible for Neo to have been Pyrrha though
actually Pyrrha was not in the Vault during Yang/Merc she was standing there a second ago with all the other singles right next too penny looking all bothered which took place after the stuff in the vault.
I'm actually worried about what's going to happen next in the show, surprising.
No more flowers and sunshine
The whole episode kinda sucked. I mean cinder was great (minus the voice, jesus those black screen moments were painful). but the fight was boring and nothing of real value was gained. it's practically ep 6.5
Man I really love power stealing shit
>In their later meeting
>Ironwood is super mad about Pyrrha fucking Penny up
>Ozpin is super smug the whole time
>Qrow's just getting shitfaced and telling Ironwood to stop bitching.
>Pyrrha's just standing there awkwardly
Aura essentially says "fuck you" to most attacks.
In that instance, Mercury's momentum carried through the fire, and he took shelter behind his robotic legs, thus being covered by both aura and decreasing the amount of damage his aura would have taken.
The type of attack is important, and she wasn't able to use any that really mattered. Her air blast would have been more useful in decreasing his momentum towards her, like with Emerald
Penny is desperately trying to put her arm back on, looking at her creator with teary eyes, they are forced to explain to her that her arm was fried by the magnetism and can not be repaired.
Is there a name for the fetish for this facial expression?
>Luara Bailey is Amber
Too bad Amber couldn't challenge her fate.
tfw no GOAT Dragon Dogma magery in RWBY
Haha, you'll don't know what talking about with Rubes, she's schlicking it every night like Anne Frank
Probably even more if she hhas to hide Blake behind a bookcase in Netherlands when the Geschneepo come
It's so god damn easy. The enemies in BB telegraph their attacks really obnoxiously and as long as your reflexes are semi functional you can hit the "shoot this faggot in the chest" button at the right time.

also, jetstream taurus confirmed
Well for one thing, take all the writers, and send them back to their shitty anime fanfictions. Replace them with writers who aren't retarded and trying to be cool by copying ever anime trope they can think of.
Make the plot relevant.
Make the characters relevant.
Make the Grimm actually useful. It's still impossible for me to believe the Grimm are even a threat, let alone dangerous enough to take down an entire city.
Maybe instead of having the plot exist to create fight scenes, have fight scenes exist to serve the plot.
The problem is finding that right time, because it's pretty clearly not 'as the swing starts' like it was in Dark Souls or I'd be landing parries on everything. Stupid fucking Hunter has to raise his gun up instead of just having it aimed and ready, which fucks with the timing.
So when Penny gets hacked and becomes Ultron is she going to kill Ciel?
Read the first letter of every line going down.
It is a shitty meme and he should feel bad.
I want to
_______be the best husband_______to Weiss!
>Lose all powers well on period.
Here you go my good man. Just get your sponsorship and you're ready to go. Alternatively you could simply wait for a day and watch for free tomorrow, have a wonderful time!
What the fuck do i do with this?
And miss all the grade a conversations my /co/mrades are having
Can we post fluff? New episode wasn't enough to make up for a shitty day.
Unless you are Jaune.
But really, it probably depends on how much you are using, she was flying, chaning the weather, deflecting bullets, constantly fighting off three people.
If you look she did a lot and used a lot of power, probably trying to shock and awe them thinking they were just stupid bandits or something. Most people don't rely on their semblance for everything and use it sparingly, if they used their semblance constantly it may drain their aura that fast.
Could also be that Cinder used a specific strategy to drain her as quickly as possible.
We also didn't see her being all that prepared for the fight or for there being a third attacker.
She was supposed to talk in volume 2 but they ran out of time. At RTX2015 someone asked if Neo will talk or be mute. RT answered "They have made a decision." It's possible they decided to make Neo mute after seeing how popular that theory is, how many believe it. A lot of fanart and fanfics depict Neo being mute.
A street urchin, a edgy assassin teen with robot legs, a young woman with a mysterious past is what it takes to defeat a Maiden. Prepare or not, she is supposed to be a fucking maiden! Ozpin talked as if they the four maidens are practically goddesses. She looked like a regular huntress.
Anon, I don't care how powerful somebody is, if you are caught even a little off guard or have an opening you can be beaten down.
How often does she manage to use those powers anyway.
I agree that seeing somebody that was hyped up as a powerhouse go down without so much as a whimper is annoying but maybe Cinder had planned this extensively beforehand.
>Tfw Broske killed Rise
Good Episode though.
In the darkness of future past, the magician longs to see.
One chants out between two worlds.
Fire, walk with me.
You might want to replace that one with pic related. Yours is missing a part
Considering they went after the Fall Maiden specifically, it might be that she's just the shittiest maiden. You could give an idiot a deathray, but if he doesn't know how to operate it, he's just an idiot with a really big gun.
>"She was tired". The same excuse they said why Neo defeated Yang so easily.
This will never cease to piss me off.
>Neo, clearly a more skilled fighter taking advantage of yangs rage to tactically wear her down and knock her out.
>HURR YANG WAS JUST TIRED FROM FIGHTING ALL THOSE GRIMM THE TEAM BARELY FAUGHT EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS SHOWN GETTING SOME REST PRIOR.
Honestly was Yang having a flaw really that scary for them?
>was Yang having a flaw really that scary for them?
She's a protagonist, so naturally she can only have flaws that make her look like a good person.
Flaws like "oh, she looks for her mother" or "oh, she cares about Ruby".
Ice Cream always beats the heat.
It's not rocket science.
It's like bad tabletop games, instant broken, just add illusions. Especially since it appears there's not even a resist or a save. It's not like this is a world full of ridiculous magical and semi-magical powers or anything, no one will ever suspect anything.
Ala shit writing.
None of those are real flaws.
Her closest thing to a flaw is the blind rage, but low and behold it is actually an advantage. Really most the cast are Mary Sues.
But we already knew the writing was shit, what is new?
Yang was so close too winning last time i can see how you think this is a possibility.
She didn't look so shitty pseudo-3D-model.
Also, I think she had a different VA.
And was more attractive.
But at least they fixed her collar.
The lack of capitalization makes me unsure of your sarcasm levels.
God forbid should it look like any of the antagonist seem stronger than the heroes.
>Roman is able to hold back both Blake and Sun?
Blake later curbstomps him on the train.
>Grimm are monster that pose a constant threat to humanity?
They're basically fodder used to get make CFVY look like big dick OGs.
>Neo managed to spin circles around and beat her down?
Yang was just tired.
Goddammit, why do they constantly fail at building tension?
>This is probably going to be Yang's thing for the entire series
I had such high hopes for her.
