ITT: We predict how the next episode opens.
Ruby pulls the fire alarm.
PRAISE THE RUBE!
I'm researching smut anon. I'm awful at it right now.
Requesting better edit of this. I want it without Ren being cropped out.
POST ALL BLAKE
POST SEXY BLAKE
POST CUTE BLAKE
POST SMUT BLAKE
I mean at this point people are going out of their way to post no vore first that's pretty cool.
That and a couple of people really seem into the whole Neo vore idea.
Reporting in with my favorite picture of best girl.
I actually wouldn't mind some backstory on SSSN.
can't speak for everyone else.Probably be a chance to give them character.
Threadly reminder that Blake has a puffy vulva
I probably wouldn't mind it either, except this is the worst possible fucking time to have it. At least wait until it's not an intense cliffhanger or even the SSSN fangirls on tumblr will be annoyed
Man someone left milk out for all these dirty Faunus Blake post...
I want to cuddle and pet Blake while hearing her purrs
> Throughout the fight it keeps cutting back to his reactions.
> The last two minutes is entirely on his face as Penny is being torn limb from limb and tossed around like a puppet by its strings.
Neptune will have Kirito's background. Sage amd Scarlet will be halfassed.
have been raised by a lonely old man in the forest and emerged as a youth when a girl crashed into him looking for a special form of grimm.
More Blake suffering please.
You know, now that I think about it, that is a likely scenario. The camera is the same design as her box and went into the box when she was done with it.
Who's to say it doesn't link into her semblance as well and basically makes her a bunny girl Taskmaster?
Happy to be of service.
On it! Does Blake impaling Yang count as a suffering?
Merc seemed to deliberately walk out and block Ruby, not get caught unaware.
yfw Cinder's plan the entire time was to take Ruby, and she did not care in the slightest about finishing off Amber.
>Neo is secretly a faunus
>Neo the half faunus daughter of Roman
>Neo the one who will help Roman chill out and accept that faunus are cool people
>Neo the one who convinces Roman to give up petty crime in the name of helping the white fang bring equality to the world
Blake bikini time?
The only thing I could think of when that lone happened was the scene from Musashi where he comes out of the seventy man duel.
Adam just covered in blood and saying it was self defense.
You clearly don't know how it feels to be tricked/duped before. She was just playing it safe.
What's the first thing Cinder will do after achieving CHIM?
Well, if she finishes absorbing Amber, the latter is quite likely.
So I was rewatching the flashback episode.
I kept thinking of the various ways they could have improved on Adam since we last saw him and all of that hope was just demolished during his screen time.
I don't think there has ever been male villian in an RT production I've liked other than Locust.
Emerald clearly saw Ruby, so she probably quickly texted Merc to intercept her when she saw her go into the maintenance corridor. Mercury was probably in their for some plan-related reason, maybe shit's finally going to go down
Those are fine too though.
Merc not gonna get irked.
>Not liking The Meta, Wyoming, Mercury or Roman
O'Malley isn't really much of a villain. Even when he first came in he was too funny. >>78864796
No not really.
He hasn't really done enough for me to like or dislike him. It's just that the few things he has done are the kind of things /rwbyg/ likes to latch onto and make jokes about.
New Status thing available.
>Bitch mom of the year
Whatever is up with Adam will probably wait for another time when focus rolls back to Blake again. Blake got a lot out of the end of Vol 1 and in Vol 2 so she'll either come back into focus for the end of this one or next volume.
In a sense, the show suffers a little because objectively, Cinder is almost too good an antagonist (as a block or threat to our protagonists). She's got a decent evil plan and keeps it moving forward even if the heroes chip at it - but it means she has a lot of momentum which keeps the central world plot moving, at the cost of development time for characters not following that momentum.
Adam is important to Blake's personal arc, possibly important for Weiss, but Cinder has deliberately made him and the White Fang a small cog in her big machine.
´Trips confirm Ruby will die.
Why did Ruby go into the maintenance hallway?
Did she read the script?
What's with all this shitty sonic-tier fan art?
I thought those were Jaune's legs for a full 10 seconds.
>every Pyrrha scene
Why are they doing this to me?
>At their goofiest they were still doing shit and that shit was effective.
O'Malley and Lopez made a robot army that moved so slowly it would take an entire day for them to kill the Reds and Blues
Just a few episodes ago, the villains successfully set up Yang as a violent bitch and are now about to get a robot ripped apart in front of millions
Her personality is the shit ton of charisma and sadism that's bottled inside that short stack
Please do not harm Yang. Yang is for warm hugs and cuddles. Thank you
Well, Neo fights with her feet, is extremely aerobatic and utilizes quick time/improvised planning compared to Yang's "punch and pray" stiff style. Having two rivals exists, you know.
Smug goes a long way in a world with minimal character development.
This does not look like warm hugs and cuddles
She just wants to wrestle
But that's not all that contrasting to her. Mercury is contrasting because he largely fights with his feet and is armed there and someone with a more traditional and formal stance would also be more of a contrasting figure.
Neo aside from the beating she gave Yang is not a figure that can really be seen as such.
And other stuff.

There isn't any but people latched on to her because this is /RWBYG/ and everyone gets greentext no matter how defunct of personality a character is.
It's why Amber Amber has people calling her their waifu and writing shitty stories.
>Ruby doesn't have Crescent Rose
Sure is convenient to create tension.
My current theory is that her box is a 3D printer and her semblance is being able to master any weapon just by touching it.
The only reason Coco told her not to use it is because the dust it runs on is super expensive, and the team's budget was stretched too thin after the latest sale at the beret store.
Amber also has the whole QT with the inevitable tragedy element in all her stories.
Preview of MGS immersion from the sponsorship zone
Kerry is a fat piece of shit, but you get to see him shot up by paintball guns Miles more competent than he looks and sometimes funny Gus, Barb, Risemonger and Coe shitty guards
Sadly, Gus and Geoff are probably too senior and too old to put up with that bullshit.
But since we now have three full teams of labrats, it might be funny to get them all together and do some big team-based Immersion.
So is Neo "not having a personality" the latest meme?
I'm guessing he captures her. Or, by some miracle, somebody competent is wandering down the maintenance corridor.
Obviously, Ruby isn't going to die.
>yfw the reason she's so hyperactive is because she's trying to keep her mind off the fact that she and Ren are orphans with nowhere else to go
No one in the audience has their weapon except Yang, and she only has it because its part of her model and RT is too lazy to make another one just for audience scenes. They're clearly not allowed to take them into the stands.
The only weird part is Ruby spotting Em, but even that could be explained by rigging assigned seats.
First of all do you know what improvisation means? Or looked at how Yang fights?
Her issue is that she lacks the fundamentals and does not understand certain principles.
She does however throw in anything and everything including the kitchen sink and act like she's an octopus banging on some drums.
She needs to be less spontaneous.
Merc's semblance is unknown, though. While any speed is likely to be from his legs (his winged boots), he could have any number of tricks up his sleeve. Somebody at RT at least has a good myth/folklore reference game.
Yes I do, and she mainly fights like a boxer, but most of the fights I've seen (Especially the tournament fight) is her simply punching and more punching. If it were team battles, different story, but on her own, punch and get angry.
Kara left RT between V1 and V2, going off what I remember of her journal.
JJ also left RT, but he burned the bridges as he went.
Shane leaving was recent, not between volumes.
I'd guess that baring a tragedy that takes someone(s), there aren't many others likely to leave anytime soon. The rest seem pretty set, unless they get a better job offer, but what actual company would want these chucklefucks?
It all really depends on Mercury. If he has a Semblance that counteracts her, or if EP7 ended with him making some modifications to his leg to prepare for something like this, she might not be able to get away.
Either way, I can see the future doujins now.
>yfw Mercs semblance is also super speed
>Using a picture of that shitty show
So guys I know that we don't know jaune's semblance but do we know ren's I know we saw that pink force field he made when fighting the King Taijitu do you guy's think that has to do with his semblance.
>Pyrrha vs Penny
>Ends just as well as you think
>Ruby vs Merc
>Raven saves her
>"Everybody gets one."
>Yang finds Raven
>Episode ends on a downer as before Yang could bring up the fact that Raven is her mom, Pyrrha (or Penny) is reported to have been killed/injured.
>It'll focus on Ozpin, Glynda, and Ironwood, and possibly flashback a la Episode 7
>Not sure on what happens here because it depends on if Penny gets fubar.
>Episode ends with the Atlas Security, too distraught over what happened, to notice Roman being busted out.
And she's not much of a kickboxer either.
Her stance is too bladed but not wide enough, she closes the distance too often for the style of kicks she likes to throw and she rarely if ever punches into them.
A variety of individual styles exist under the practice of kickboxing but her's is too faulty.
Well she does keep a boxing pose when dodging and blocking certain attacks, however shit animation and RT are behind to blame her faultiness imo. I assume kick boxing would be like a base concept of her fighting but isn't researched well by the animators.
Just found this from Monty's brother.
It was already not-as-RWBY without Monty, but if Shane was as important as Neath says, then I'm actually kind of nervous.
>inb4 but Dillon! His fights have been shit. Camera angles and blur/motions lines are the equivalent to polishing turds.
just watched the episode. I know you guys probably went over this several times already, but what's the prevailing explanation for why it's an issue that Ruby noticed Emerald there, but not for the dozens of other participants, thousands of other stadium attendees, and presumably millions of people tuning in worldwide?
the whole scandal with Yang and Mercury is likely the most-followed story in Remnant right now, and Emerald was clearly there at the time so even people just watching knew who she was. it also sounded like public knowledge that she left for mistral with mercury which is why neither could be reached for comment, so why does nobody BUT Ruby give it a second thought to see Emerald there instead of where she's supposed to be?
Ruby is a sniper (meaning half-decent eyesight), and Emerald doesn't exactly have a common hair color. As for why they're still there, who knows? I'm genuinely hoping that Cinder isn't the chessmaster we're lead to believe she is, but is just surprisingly good at improvising.
>Not a story at all
Autismo, please take your meds. Your mother is starting to worry, and you wouldn't want to cause your hot pocket to be a few minutes late because of that, do you?
so Emerald was at the stadium in hiding, and singled out Ruby as a target so that she'd get suspicious, but Emerald wasn't actually sitting there? I guess that makes sense, but they still haven't cleared up whether or not Yang was specifically targeted as the person to break Merc's leg and spark that fiasco, or whether they just used her out of convenience since they could rig matchups and she was in the finals. if they are singling out team RWBY in particular for destruction, that could either be potentially very interesting depending on how things unfold or potentially terrible if the writing botches it. this episode kind of made me think they just wanted to target anyone in Beacon and nobody in particular though, by turning the public tide against their tournament combatants. it's already happening with people blaming Beacon for Yang's conduct, and the Pyrrha vs Penny match is obviously a setup to agitate that. cause turmoil against Beacon, and it becomes way easier to finish the job on Amber. I dunno why they would need to take out Ruby when she's not even fighting.
Is it time to lynch that reporting faggot yet?
>talking about the staff
I hope you don't, since there was literally nothing wrong with that, but I'd be surprised if it's more than my last one, which was a day.
>Ruby is a sniper (meaning half-decent eyesight), and Emerald doesn't exactly have a common hair color.
that wasn't the point though, even if MOST people in that stadium didn't notice her right away, she's still highly visible figure in the public right now, and sitting directly next to a bunch of other tournament participants. a lot of people could easily notice her walking around and being visible if she was there, but only Ruby seemed to give a second thought to that. seems weird, it would be more likely that just being seen anywhere in Vale would cause a media shitstorm with everyone trying to interview her, and reporting that she was sighted in Vale anyways even if they couldn't manage to pin her down for comment. but no, she's just doing her thing and being in public, and nobody but Ruby seemed to care.
Well, Weiss and Neptune at least have the excuse of being dumb teenagers.
Either that or she used her Semblance to make Ruby THINK she was sitting far away when she might have been hiding closer to Ruby.
We've already seen how quickly she can devolve into making herself horribly sad if she sticks on one conversation topic for too long. It took her less than half a minute for her to talk herself into a depression so intense she lost color.
It would probably take a few minutes, at most, of being stuck on one train of thought to make her suicidal just through her own rambling turning impossibly dark
I realize I didn't quite finish up what happened with Merc.
I'll just sum up here: Gets beaten to a point where he'll be inactive for the next volume (his legs get chopped off), Ironwood gets a testimony from him or something, but brings up that even if Yang's name is cleared and RWBY is unDQ'd, people are so upset with Vytal that there'll be no more Vytal period.
yeah that was the point raised here >>78867148 that I didn't consider and responded to here >>78867281
it's just that this plot has so much inconsistency that it's hard to know for sure whether something is just poorly explained, misrepresented, a legitimate plot hole, an intentional use of incomplete information to create suspense, or what. it doesn't help either that they've suddenly switched gears from TELLING the plot to SHOWING the plot, so it makes it difficult to judge how the narrative devices are supposed to work now.
>Implying M&K understand how anything works.
These are the same people who claimed that the most popular girl in the Academy gets no invitations. The whole thing is just a convinient string of coinidences that move the plot where they need it to be, even if it makes no sense.
That's your average goodbye talk, anon.
It could be that they're going to enact the final phase of their plan during the PyrrhavsPenny fight. That would explain why Merc is walking around under the stadium.
that at least has some rationale we can understand though, it's just fucking stupid. the way Arkos is written is pure self-insert bait for losers who want to get with the powerful, smart, rich, attractive, world-famous girl, and made it so that he not only has a legitimate shot at it, not only that she has canon feelings for him, but that she is basically putty in his bumbling hands. when you view it like that, the way it's written is very consistent, just dumb as hell.
Because we have a steady supply of fresh content.
That takes effort though, can't have too much of that at RT
But I would totally do that if I were put in charge of RWBY.
MotW format where recent Beacon graduates Yang, Weiss, and Blake have to deal with Signal dropout Ruby running away from home, tagging along and replacing their dead teammate
>MotW format where recent Beacon graduates Yang, Weiss, and Blake have to deal with Signal dropout Ruby running away from home, tagging along and replacing their dead teammate
That'd be adorable hurt and comfort.
>It could be that they're going to enact the final phase of their plan during the PyrrhavsPenny fight. That would explain why Merc is walking around under the stadium.
so you're telling me that we have an international fighting competition of young power-users who compete in a friendly 1v1 tournament with 8 members, but there's a group of infiltrators in the tournament who crash the tournament in the first round in order to unleash monsters on the kingdom it's hosted in?
I feel like I've seen that story already.
it wasn't good then either.
So been watching this.
I have to say the fact the directors commentary Miles's voice is literally the same voice he uses for Jaune bothers me.
In general it is a pretty interesting watch imo though, goes over season one pretty well.
>Penny vs Pyrrha is Gaara vs Sasuke
>Cinder is Orochimaru
>Cinder(orochimaru) manipulates Penny(gaara) into becoming a monster unleashed on the world
>only to eventually be killed by Pyrrha(sasuke) after she turns to the dark side
>Pyrrha(sasuke) only finds redemption when her good friend and main character Ruby(naruto) saves her
Fuck, it all fits. Why do I put up with this shit? It's not just bad writing, it's a bad adaptation of someone else's bad writing.
You know, early nardo was actually watchable.
Buy Rwby and use /RWBYg/ as inspiration on how to run the show.
what happens is pic related.
Just a reminder than Neji was right.
Make my own web faux anime, make it not suck and eventually get enough influence to rip RWBY out of Burnie's.
I then do jack shit with the IP and sue anyone that makes unauthorized fanwork, merch and other things concerning the show. It must never see the light of day as long as I live.
Buy 4chan from hiroshimoot and pin a RWBY thread to the top of every board and have people discuss it from that board's frame of reference. Hunter weapons on /k/, grimm eclipse on /v/, the manga on /a/, everything. Also they're all eternal stickies so they never go away, just get fresh new ones when there's too many posts.
Dropping the ambiguous post Apocalypse themes in the background was a hit too.
RIP in RIP.
Neo confirmed CEO.
you're gonna need a large team of "copyright protectors" to constantly scour the internet and make sure nobody infringes on it.
how much pay are you offering? I wouldn't clean that shit up FOR FREE.
Hey everyone, Mercury made a speedy recovery! Thanks for all of your blessings and wishes. He's even able to come up and hug his partner!
>Summer dies when Ruby is close to graduating from Signal
>this causes her to go into depression and drop out
>2 years later when *WBY is doing their final mission to graduate, their leader sacrifices them self so the rest could live
>WBY are shaken up but manage to pull through and do contracts, traveling the world

>Yang is shocked to see that her normally bubbly little sister is a sad sack of shit

>Sisterly bonding ensues and Ruby decides to tag along on their adventures
And thus begins a rebooted RWBY
Topics that pop up can be:
>Weiss annoyed at an incompetent kid slowing them down and replacing their dead team mate
>The team finding out that Blake was a former WF member, though they already knew about her being a faunus
>Yang's mommy issues with Raven
>Ruby being more trouble than help to the team, questions whether she should be there or not
>Weiss deciding if she should listen to daddy or turn her back and keep helping people directly
They can meet plenty of people on their journey, like Sun and JNPR.
And they can frequently run into Roman who's always trying to expand his criminal empire. Sometimes he's trouble, other times he's even useful.
You can still have Cinder in their with her keikaku, maybe with an actual army of grimm or something.
Honestly I just want them to get out of Beacon and Vale, holy fuck the setting is so damn boring
>Blake vs Adam
makes sense, they have history
>Yang vs Mercury
sure, it fits
>Ruby vs Cinder
>Weiss vs Emerald
So it's just the leftovers? Doesn't make any sense, unless it's because
they were fighting over whose waifu was better.
I'd be ok with that as long as you didn't force any bullshit relationships in.
Hell I'd like that.
I kinda hope that this season forces everybody out of Beacon and gets them to travel.
I really wonder if Adam and the White Fang will play any role in this volume. We saw them in the flasbhback, but what about afterward? The only idea I can think of is that the White Fang take advantage of the Grimm invasion to do whatever they need to do. Maybe they will bring down a communications tower, which will cease all communications across the entire world. I don't see how that would benefit the White Fang.
hey /rwbyg/ can I get some fluff? had a really bad day and could use cheering up
presumably that'd make it harder to have reinforcements from atlas and shut down all international communication, making it easier to raid whatever they want to, isolate vale from the world, and not have to fight a coordinated army to do it. hell, if the keikaku goes right, the other kingdoms might not even WANT to help vale, and leave them at the (nonexistent) mercy of the white fang.
>Blake and Adam come face to face with each other.
>There's a dramatic pause.
>Adam grabs her by the ears, knees her in the stomache like Overeem and throws her yowling out a window.
>"GIT GUD MOTHERFUCKER!"
The cookies turned out better than Ruby thought they would.
I doubt Nora would have fingering my anus planned.
It would definitely be a spur of the moment decision.
...But she also seems like she would keep her nails trimmed so...hell i'd do (almost) anything once so time to prepare the prostate
The cookies turned Ruby into an alcoholic.
This one is from last night.
Censor that shit Octy.
I honestly never really put much thought into it
Maybe a guy Weiss was close with
inb4 lynchedwhich is why she lashes out at Ruby so much when she initially joins the team
Could also add one tiny bit
>they travel on a raggedy ass air ship
>Yang uses Ruby being good with mechanics as an excuse to convince Weiss and Blake to let her stay
>every episode has a new "upgrade" courtesy of Ruby
I don't know what you mean anon.
Three bell emojis
RT will never consider doing this any time soon looking at how slow the plot is moving
Though a world traveling adventure would be amazing in a dangerous place like Remnant
>She lashes out against Ruby and how she can't be a proper leader
>She soon gets over it and finds Ruby to be a better leader than her previous lover
>Romance becomes tense
I'm liking this more and more.
It probably won't come to anything though.
I doubt anything besides Eclipse withh ever really be a thing.
I'm honestly quite thankful for that.
Exactly, as far as he knows she just shouted and slammed him into a wall.
He knows something is up but he can't do shit about it because she slams him into walls!
Are you ok Oct... you seem to be in denial.
Enjoyable but lacks content right now
Waiting for 3rd update with extra levels and possibly JNPR
>it probably won't be released until we get official confirmation of what Jaune's semblance is
Wait, people actually watch this not-anime produced by e-celeb mouthbreathing retards? What the fuck is wrong with you people?
>Gigantic grimm invasion due to all the negativity in the tournament
>The flying stadium is bombed by Cinder and it comes crashing down
>Beacon is compromised, too many grimm and the teachers/hunters that are there can't hold them back forever
>An emergency evacuation takes place
>Atlas tries to get as many people as they can into their airships
>The rest either have to escape through alternate methods, stay and fight the grimm or die trying
>All of the important teams fight their way out of Beacon
>They now have to travel to the nearest safe have
And that's how you get the ball rolling on them traveling the world.
Now I kinda want a funny story of what emo/PMS/angsty Pyrrha would be like
>"I can't get through to her, maybe we should let Jaune do it. He seems to be the only one that she's close to, she'll listen to him."
>"I've already tried! Every time I say anything, she slams me into walls! I can't even make eye contact anymore."
If RT had not decided to skip JNPR's 2vs2, they could have showed it there. Still, 4 episodes left. If the Grimm invade, and JNPR get called in, then that's another chance to show Semblances.
Over the course of this last year it feels like RT's gone to shit.
>The Know became dogshit
>Pushing garbage like RT-ES
>Shane leaving RWBY
So what's next? That collab between Frederator and RT being nothing but noodle-armed trash designed to pander to a tumblr fanbase?
