That would work too, but imagine explaining that to anyone
>Why the hell are you going to mountain glenn, and why so many of you?
>"Uhh, annual meeting of our group?"
>Can literally use sewage as weapon
Probably, a shame though.
That could work, I'd be safe from Octy and some other namefags that way.
Literally listened to that on repeat the entire time I was making the dumb edit.
Also it's pretty much just a coping mechanism because I know Penny is probably doomed and I like her a lot.
I'M IN DENIAL
HELP ME STRELOK
Oh don't be disappointed.
It'll be a good tragic crack story, especially from a reasonable everyman PoV. A story about a rag tag bunch stuck suffering in an increasingly deadly place, stuck inbetween dangerous forces.
If there are any anons with proper skill and mindsets among the group, they'll probably make some profit or outright eat the rest alive too.
"Annual meeting of your group, huh?"
>"ehh, Yeah. Just a good ol picknick"
"in the mountains?"
>"You know it!"
"And how many of you are there?"
>"100-120 give or take"
"That's a lot for a picnic"
"Why not have it here? it's much safer and warmer"
>"...We like the scenery"
"Nice going faggot, you almost blew the cover. On an unrelated note, Octy went missing again"
Probably the worst thing is that with ~120 people, even by random draw some people are gonna win the Semblance lottery and get like x-ray vision or detect evil or elemental breath or become Purple Man.
And some people are gonna get stuck with something goofy, like telekinetic control of objects which are a specific shade of blue, the ability to talk to fish or being able to write letters with their mind.
>ANYONE from 4chan becoming the Purple Man
All hope is lost.
That sounds awesome.
Some of us are just going to have to settle for background characters who are just our waifus in different color palettes.
>inb4 everyone joins Cinder because she promises everyone a waifu
>30+ posters in less than 60 posts
>"Why not have it here? it's much safer and warmer"
>"I wouldn't worry. 120 hunters having a good time? Grimm won't even be near us. Plus, worrying will attract Grimm, and then you'll have to deal with them."
"Oh, good point. Have fun!"
So lets get serious here, what're we all gonna do when Penny RIPs in pieces on saturday?
That's because they're not allowed to do so
I doubt it, if we're gonna make it hardcore, then everyone is gonna have to duke it out in that abandoned city that RWBY went to in Season 2.

Minor shapeshifting I guess. Hair color, eye color, skin tone, accent. Just enough to unrecognizable.
Doesn't have many combat applications which is a shame because I want to go full Ronin but it could be useful on a team.
No they aren't.
Never trust anything synthetic.
This is why people die.
Smoke Creation! And a character is Camouflage, an awfully big marine, who mysteriously appears at troublesome times, constantly smiles, motivates others, pulls out people's asses out of fire with his bare hands, uses simple subpar equipment and sings sad songs when there's no one around.
Honestly I fully expect most people here to immediately try to abuse their powers. Maybe not in evil ways but in annoying ways.
Also probably two thirds will be hospitalized by Yang.
Nah brah, live life. If danger comes your way, run. I'll be right behind you.
and not watch this ANY MOOOOOORRREE!
I really liked the Metal Gear one they did, Mile's first attempt reminded me so much of my own playthrough of V.
>I'm going to be super sneaky and no one will notice me at all.
I'm generally apathetic or procrastinating about a lot of things to avoid my own anxiety problems, so I probably slow people down or fuck with their perception of time, so I appear faster but really I just move at my own pace.
>You have a collective semblance with all of the other writefags:

But only if everyone writes the same stuff - and you won't ever know that it's a collective semblance.
Since he can control inc, does that mean that he can control ferrofluids?

And so on. Holy shit, son.

I don't like it, picking my own.
>dying of blood diseases
I control blood. Combat medic, perm erections, tearing the blood out of my enemies, not dying, you name it.
Don't you know? Jaune has the power to rape anyone into submission, it's just that Pyrrha's massive cockblocking abilities are too great.
The story of JNPR is them following Jaune as he manages to defeat every villain while Pyrrha is unconscious.
I'd like to inagine a group of 120 men wearing paper bags over their heads with holes in them. Some with names hastily scribbled on top.
All of them are holding a weapon in hand. a weapon being either a kitchen knife, or something straight up from Dead rising put together with duct tape.
Well Anons thanks for the encouragement
She said yes!However I have one more question for all of y'all If things get serious what do i do about my waifu?
Anon, I'm going to level with you.
Denial is ok... it will be hard losing best robot but we must continue on....
Continue on for her.
It will be sad, and we will mourn.
But we must keep our heads high and our shoulders square...for Penny.
I just hope she does not get destroyed by cardboard.
I just hope her destruction will not be pointless or moot.
I hope this helps not only you but all Pennybros
When we have no one else we will have each other
Cry like a little bitch because Penny is one of, if not the best girl
I had a dream I was a very feminine boy and Neon through pebbles at my window to ask me to go party with her. I don't even like Neon.
Is it Yang? I'll keep her company anon.
So you were trap anon and Neon was gonna do some lewd stuff with you at the party?
Keep her in the back of you mind
If things ever go south you will always have your waifu
Did you see any pics of meg
Maybe that would trigger something on a subconscious level
Ciel will be there to pick up the pieces
I'm not completely happy that self-inserting me into this makes me so hard
Reminder while we wait for the preview.
>tfw the threat advisory on ED is "Time's Up"
That's a good idea
I know that anon I'm not a complete sperg
Dinner and a Movie
>One tit is a perfect sphere
>The other is a normal shaped breast
Probably the generic "murderous split personality".
I always joke about it (weird mood swings sometimes). Maybe similar to a Masquerader from Wakfu, each personality activated with a mask, has a certain strength, and a huge weakness.
One personality has super strength, but is very slow and kind of stupid, another is fast, but very weak and timid, the last one a murderous combination of the two, but nearly depletes all aura to use.
Nice. It looks better, smoother. Shame RT decided to drop the FPS from 30 down to 24 when volume 3 started, which is partially makes the fights look slower and clunkier. The camera work and close ups don't help either.
I really love the part where merc was break dancing
Lyrics are hard to make out, but it seems to be a theme for Em and Merc
>Can't stray your fate from a metal clad boot, you should give up now, your retaliation's moot
>Delusions, I'll stand 'till you break and defeat you from inside your mind
That seems like such an easy way to trigger her semblance.
Though it's likely 99% don't hit her.
Shotguns don't spread as much as they do in video games, especially inches from the barrel.
Okay well what is she into, figure out that as a starting point and go from there, food is always a safe bet, but pair it with an activity afterwards or before. The most important part is just to make sure you seem interested in her, and you yourself are an interesting person. Talk about sports you play, things you do, vacations you've taken, but most importantly try to find a connection on something you both like, latch onto it and expand it.
The Mercury part plays as he jumps down onto Yatsu's sword and the part about delusions is the last line of the song, playing as Coco is dragged into the forest
If we'd looked at the lyrics properly, we'd have realised Emerald was behind the Yatsu hallucination sooner
Technically I think she says "damage" or something like that.
I'm pretty sure the gist is that every hit to her Aura that doesn't break it makes her stronger. They say several times she has to be able to take the hit and keep going for it to work.
>Mercury kicking the shit out of Ruby
Gonna be a good fight.
And I guess that would confirms that is actually Merc?
Eh, disappointing preview. I mean, we all pretty much foresaw that Mercury would kick Ruby, and then she would run away.
Pyrrha Vs Penny? Yay. I thought they could show us something that more, a hint that things are going to end badly for someone.
> mfw she ends up singing folk song like Bender as she dies.
Pain, damage, same difference. Point was it's not anger.
Or she can bank the damage and activate it at will, but once it's spent, it's gone for good. She never just starts a fight with it. It's always after taking at least a couple hits.
>And I guess that would confirms that is actually Merc?
Seems so. I thought it would be the real Merc anyway because we didn't hear Em's illusion sound
Does 'showtime' confirm that this is endgame?
Hey Greatcow, nice to see you. Do you have pic related saved as a pastebin or on FF/AO3?
I paused at the right time.
I say they're luring us into a false sense of security.
The way Yatsuhashi moves and carrys himself bothers me.
He's holding himself and moving like a man a third of his size and the fact that he's so big doesn't seem to play much of a factor in the fight.
Also HE FUCKING THREW HIM?
>Someone posted a really short Nora handjob story last night..
Are we up for Nora smut two nights in a row..?
>Come to think of it, Merc's boots looks like a leg variant of Ember Celica
He was literally designed to contrast against Yang, which was directly illustrated by the beginning of their fight
Jaune made it to the stands, so it's doesn't look like he'll be saving Ruby
Also, the fact that it doesn't look like anything past the opening of each fight is being shown probably means that the rest of the episode is to spoilerific to show in the preview
which means shit's finally going down
>tfw you unconsciously notice it but don't realize it until a screenshot is posted
Feels embarrassing man
>Ruby not constantly open carrying CR
This disappoints me
Also bit late to the party, but this artist made the perfect reaction image to last week's episode.
Can't wait to watch my Waifu get the absolute shit kicked out of her.
>The Mercury hate has already begun on reddit and tumblr
Well, he still lives in Austin, and he left on good enough terms with most of them. Plus he swings by to record for X-Ray every now and then.
And he's a crowd favorite. An easy viewer boost for the price of a McDouble. Makes sense for RT to bring him on every now and then.
Ray left AH to basically live his dream job while staying in Austin - so he still comes in to do VA stuff and occasionally appear. He was at RTX last year, but won't this because apparently SGDQ is more important to him now.
(He also makes enough money to drop 2500 on charity like it's nothing, so more power to that guy)
I'm sorry, I can't help it.
>reddit and Tumblr hate best buddy
Filthy Oseans all of them
Still a bit lost.
Ace combat reference.
Yuri voices a character named Pixy who joins a group who has the sole purpose of removing country borders to end all wars.
Also, next episode is going to be the last episode because they accidentally left a big spoiler in there.
We postin' Rube gettin a beatin'
Why is this a thing?
Something something the clipping pain.
But don't they animate frame by frame? Is the animator putting Merc's foot inside Ruby's head and tells himself "This looks fine. No one will notice." I don't think moving away from Poser to a modern animation program will help fix that. They will still cut around corners.
>Come to 4chan
>Say whatever dumb shit you want and claim Reddit or Tumblr said it
3/5 times at least it's just outright bullshit and the other two times they found one idiot saying something stupid, but then why go outside of 4chan to find an idiot?
Limitations of Poser, not cleaned up enough MoCap, lack of time on post production. Could be one of a multiple number of issues, supposedly this is their last season with poser which should, in theory lead to better animation going forward.
My post was more about the not looking in the right places thing. You can dig all you want and you're not likely to find things people pop into the thread to claim tumblr or reddit said.
The post you're talking about is making a joke about how they'll say they want to protect Ruby but still really enjoy Ruby getting wrecked.
I'm pretty sure their staff gets larger each season, the issue is I think they turn more staff and money into larger scope each year - hence actual background characters instead of shadows, better backdrops and environmental effects, slightly better facial animation, etc.
Well Monty passing away suddenly probably threw a bit of a wrench in the gear works. Then you run into the problem that unless you bring someone onboard who is as intimately experienced/familiar with Poser as monty was, you're still going to lose lots of production time bringing them up to speed.
I'm not excusing them mind you, hell that twitter post of miles and kerry talking about how they were still pounding out scripts for volume 3, what? 2-3 months before it was set to be released? That shit is nutters, scripts should have already been ironed out way before that. It's probably a combination of mismanagement of the project, lack of available resources (time/people etc, they've been hiring animators like crazy), and Monty's death that all combined to cause the issues they're facing now.
that doesn't mean we shouldn't discuss them
Which makes me curious how soon they will have volume 4 ready. I strongly doubt it will be this summer. It would have to be rushed then. I say Fall at the earliest. The way things are, we should expect one volume per year. It's not gonna cut it. They need to work more effectively, and produce faster without dropping quality.
Most of them are as "glaring" as any other fluidly animated series.
Reminder that animation is more often that not the easy scapegoat for why a series is shit.
The errors in RWBY are frequent and glaring, yes, but no one would really care if the story wasn't shit.
>lol why does ONE's version of one punch man look so bad XD
You don't exactly see that shit from someone intelligible.
I'd imagine with the increased staff and greater scrutiny now that they've released to great critical acclaim in Japan that they'll probably have a better handle on this season. The big question will be will they really move beyond poser for their primary animation or just update their poser client?
That'll probably determine how smooth production will go next season. They've had time to recuperate from Monty's death, they've hired new animators, and Lazer Team's demands on the company are now pretty much just marketing and distribution related so in theory, freeing up resources for other projects.
Switching animating tools will be the big issue, though I don't know if we'll find out one way or the other until at least RTX at the earliest and maybe not even then.
>Lazer Team's demands on the company
Which were almost none, as far as the animation department should have been concerned. Everything not handled by Live Action was outsourced. The only thing that could have been effected would have been some of the availability of the VAs like Michael.
RT's not the same tiny closet company with 10 people. The Live Action and Animation departments are separate and probably don't overlap much, if at all.
>I'm that guy that never talks
Guess I'm Dragonborn then
I mainly meant it more from a budgetary perspective. You're definitely right in that the actors from the live action section dont' really interact much with the animators, but depending on how many resources they had to allocate for shooting/editing/distributing the movie, that could affect how much dosh the animation team could make use of (overtime, hiring new animators, paying for software toolsets etc)
>At full strength, his voice has the capability to destroy planets
No thank you, I don't want to accidentally wipe a city off the map, especially since there are really only 4 cities in all of Remnant
What do you think the big Cliffhanger is going too be this weeks episode leading us to hate the World of Remnant next week?
Well, the crowdfunding was always extra funds they could use to improve the film. They were probably gonna make Lazer Team regardless, just the additional money it brought in made it easier to shoot and able to have better quality.
Crowdfunding often likes to make is sound like you're their only hope for money, but realistically they probably start with part of a budget already - crowdfunding drives up that budget and gets public awareness, it's like being paid to do a marketing campaign.

They have the same 24 hour days/clock as Earth. The calendar system is probably a bit different (Remnant Year Whateverthefuck), but there's good indication that they also have a seven day week and a 365 day year.

I gotta admit tho, the fact that Pyrrha's already moist and commando already makes it pretty hot.
And cosplayed as Yuno Gasai
Penny is significantly more powerful than human Huntsmen and Atlas' robo-Stormtroopers. She may get deactivated, but not before she does a lot of damage and causes some casualties. Her going berserk would lead to Atlas losing a powerful asset and their military technology being called into serious question.
>There's actually a well trusted group of Huntsman/Huntresses named the Knights of the Round Table in Ozpin's Illuminati
>yfw Jaune's father is actually the head of the Knights of the Round Table
Because the reaction to Yang v Merc resulted in a massive spike in Grimm activity. That's going to not only thin the security, but when the stadium crashes eventually, the Grimm will already be riled up and in the area, so there's bound to be a massive invasion that makes the Breach look like a paper cut.
Eliminating a person they identified as powerful enough to put a wrench into their plans.
Cinder's whole plan seems to be centered around causing paranoia and general discord to attract Grimm and make people panicky and distrustful of each other so they can't organize an opposition to the keikaku. We don't know her endgame, but we do know the path she's taking.
That's true. Improbable vs improbable. Maybe Remnant is an old space colony project?
It would certainly fill at least some holes, even if it's a tad cliche. They came to build civilizations, but ended up meeting massive roadblocks in form of themselves and Grimm, or they were the ones who made Grimm.
But then how do Adam and his White Fang fit into all of this other than as disposable mooks? My guess is to take the public's attention off Cinder's group by committing crimes and riling people up personally.
Dunno, sometimes it's best just to let it go. Most fantasy universes run into that problem, unless you're willing to make the history of the entire world a plot point it's easier just to start with a world which sorta like ours but with X and go from there.
Disposable mooks completely. Adam was perfectly fine living innawoods and edgelording out at humans from a distance until Cinder came along and "persuaded" him to join up with her.
It only directly contradicts canon when it comes to Jaune's Semblance, the author is pretty smart at that.
Not that the plot is anywhere near what the real one will be but so far everything adds up.
Remnant is a literal remnant.
It's the ruins of civilization after the Grimm came during a golden age.
Names like Lie Ren and Nora Valkyrie are left because that's what could be kept.
That's not how you spell Velvet Scarlatina
So, will the moon foever be just good looking background shit or will they actually explain, what happened and how this affects remnant?
