Nourish Neo & Roman, Ice Cream for all!
except Yang none for you
This newest episode sure was disarming.
The keikaku is happening!
All hail Cinder!
Robot Sale, 50% off. Some assembly required.
fuck, i messed up the goddamn OP
new episode http://roosterteeth.com/episode/rwby-season-3-9
It's like it's 2013 all over again. Penny is the new Freckled Jesus.
and this guy has 2 weeks until episode 10 and so far, nothing is leading towards what he said.
When will Merc have a real fight?
The fuck was this episode ? Holy Shit.
Because we knew Penny was gonna get torn apart since volume 1
Because sadly without Cinder we wouldn't see more of the best characters.
Perhaps. But he and his soldiers sure know how to strike a badass group pose.
Sorry, I'm having issues getting VLC to download the ep. Might be some time till I can upload it
lol rip Robot Waifu
Fuck every single little shit who goes to Beacon and aspires to be a shining moral knight in armor. Some of you are cool though..
Don't come to the festival tomorrow.
My god they can't even get that right.
Then we can get some sky piracy going with their new ship.
No, Emerald, I am not going to let a terrorist dictate where I spend my time.
Besides, it will be fine. Ironwood has a whole army on standby. Even has a fleet of ships watching over things.
Sam told me of a cyborg who can separate like me, is it true?
Is that right? Cause the Yang fight was clearly thrown for keikaku
Told ya we should have gassed all those faunus and destroyed the other nations just for good measure
i dunno, i feel like the realization of what she's done might drive her to become the maiden, so she doesnt have to remember the shitty thing she did
>'Penny's PREGNANT, and also DEAD, Cinder and her goons are coming to kill us all, most of JNPR and RWBY are going to commit mass suicide along with other Beacon students...AND THE PROM'S TOMORROW!!!"
>Implying Cinder could touch bestgirl and greatest husbando.
Your hilarious, anon.
>My face when M&K are going to try and convince us that Jaune is suddenly good enough to fight grimm.
>Waiting for ad to stop buffering
>I have adblocker plus
>I didn't whitelist Roosterteeth website
I think you need to take off your Yang tinted glasses, anon.
I'm more afraid for Weiss than anything really
Hope her dad or sister comes and picks her up out of the shithole that Vale is turning into. Better yet, a second fight with Banesaw
Oh? So you think that even though Mercury can easily solo 2 second year students that he was legitimately beaten by Yang?
Nigga lost on purpose to get people's emotions riled up and to get Yang in trouble.
>implying Cinder will leave loose ends
>"Don't think, obey" quote
She's not nice, and he's dangerous. Do you think she'll just let him roam free? I find it doubtful that he himself will stay down at her bark. She may end up taking all the fun away if she succeeds too.
Unless there'll be some silly plot line in which she brainwashes him into her lover or some shit like that, but that's just fucking sad.
Time for a classic:
What would faunus have if we stopped killing them?
IMO, the speech was fine. I think she just wanted to scare the fuck out of people rather than really persuade them of anything.
though i would not object to empress cinder taking power
>It finally stops buffering the Lazer Team ad
>Lazer Team ad preroll
Fuck me, I'm not even mad
>Roman and Neo shooting down Atlas airships while this song echos throughout the command deck.
>After all that I realize I clicked on the previous episode that I've already seen
She missed her boss/boyfriend/father figure/grand puba
>She's not nice, and he's dangerous. Do you think she'll just let him roam free?
I see no reason why their interests wouldn't keep aligning.
Cinder needs allies to stomp Vale and fight off any Grimm invasions/counter-attacks, and so does he.
Beyond that, unless Cinder plans to blow up the world or something, why not keep working together? Roman wants wealth and power, Cinder wants capable minions. Seems like they both win.
I'd be so fucking pissed if Jaune fights Mercury and doesn't get the complete shit beat out of him.
There are two things that would make me drop this show immediately.
2.Jaune beating a villain that took out people far better than Jaune.
>Roman starts air conducting to the laser fire
Sadly, no. I heard that Shannon (Ozpin's VA) let slip on Afterbuzz that Oz ddin't get a fight scene this volume.
Which is a shame. I'd like to see him being the only thing standing between Cinder and Amber, and giving Cinder a real bad time.
Now that I think about it, Weiss and Winter, more than anyone, have the ability to get by Emerald's mind-manipulation, due to their summons being able to take care of Emerald while she concentrates on the schnee
Try not to be too butthurt when they have a brutal rematch ok pumpkin?
It's over for Vale. Neo has returned the source of Roman's power.
Honestly, Cinder probably doesn't need to actually persuade people. If it works, fine, but if not she has the power to get what she wants. This is shown back in 7 when she tries to get the White Fang and then forces them to join anyway.
I'm not against character development. I'm against the weakest link suddenly overpowering powerful villains because of a few rooftop training sessions, one tournament match he barely fought and an assisted grimm kill.
>He can handle Grimm on his own
He can't. If Pyrrha didn't move his shield he would have gotten decapitated.
I don't even think his semblance is that strong. They say that we've already seen it but Jaune hasn't done shit worth applauding.
I can't wait for the rematch fight where Merc doesn't have to hold back.
Give the heroes a proper beatdown before this story actually starts moving. Fuck the status quo.
Hail Cinder, queen of Vale.
And has gotten yet another outfit for roleplay night.
True, but the danger remains. He's not some small fry after all. Can't really have fun if he has Cinder stepping on his toes, can't be the top dog if she's around. She may just decide that he did enough, and make him go poof once she's done. Or he finds some better opportunity and switches sides.
What's the difference between a horse and a Faunus?
It's illegal to kill horses.
>Implying Jaune won't turn into Guts this season
Reminder that we still don't have a Jaune "arc" and it usually happens around this time too. Be prepared to Jaune's semblance and Crocea Mors' greatsword form
>Not using a Kazuhira Arc pic in /rwbyg/
If you are not going to use that head may I borrow it?
I heard it was limited edition.
As soon as things start getting hype, they fuck it up.
I doubt the partnership would last long enough for Ironwood's objections to matter.
Nope. Just very determined to irk the unirkable

Why are you such a faggot?
I'm not reading the majority of posts because I'm not a sponsor and can't watch yet, but I just HAD to share the beauty and splendor of this awesome drawing currently floating on Twitter. Behold, the sky goddess.
WHY THE FUCK ARE THEY MAKING THOSE STUPID EPISODES!!! WHY THE FUCK ARE PEOPLE WATCHING THOSE STUPID EPISODES!?!?!? WHO'S STUPID IDEA WAS IT TO JUST DUMP ALL THE WORLDBUILDING ON THE WIKI AND SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS WITHOUT GIVING TWO FUCKING SHITS!?!?!?!?!?
I am sincerely asking this of everyone here on /RWBYg/: Please stop sending RoosterTeeth money.

I don't have a rape fetish, but this giving me the vapors.
I would have said 'Yes' before this volume.
Now it's just no.
She isn't, her team has less and less relevance to the overall plot. Jaune and Pyrrha have more and more relevance to the plot.
They could turn it around at the end of the volume but they won't.
RT are fucking idiots.
Meme cat can't be predicted by keikaku
>We didn't even need waifuclub, the MEGA uploads were fine
>Since it was there though people stopped making MEGA uploads
>Now when we need it it's fucking down
OK, so here's how I think things will progress from here on out:
>General chaos and the main characters running around trying to find each other
>Ruby gets away from Merc and gets a copy of her weapon from Velvet
>Cinder and co gloating about everything being according to keikaku
>Cinder and co get ready to storm Amber's vault, but are met by Ozpin
>JNPR and RWBY and maybe some other lead teams get together
>Ozpin puts up an amazing fight and shows that he would easily take down any of them individually, but is ultimately overpowered when they work together
>When Cinder and co think nothing is stopping them from getting Amber's power, teams RWBY and JNPR and whoever else is with them show up
>They manage to fight off team CMEN and co, but at least Cinder gets away while Merc and maybe Em are left behind
>Falling action shows that thanks to Merc's capture, Yang's innocence has been proven
>Scene where we finally see who Cinder is working with/for and they say something implying that they're still very dangerous
good man anon good man!
take this as payment
No because Juane's semblance is stealing screentime
Currently? Hell to the no. This volume she's gotten jack and shit in direct plot relevance, her power levels are all around mediocre to straight up terrible except for raw speed. The only way she's getting back in the spotlight this volume is if she asspulls like crazy in the last 2 episodes and
becomes the Summer Maiden.
>Penny was actually powered by the soul of Ironwood's dead daughter
>Penny's "father" did literally everything else
There's no way to bring her back; at least not without losing all of her personality and memories
I like her sister better.
Volume 4 will be mostly focused on May trying to escape her homosexual ideas
You know what I don't care anymore. I want Jaune to unlock his semblance via great despair most likely concerning Pyrrha and him just going apeshit on everything. I have a boner for useless wimp characters going berserk and shitting on everything
Bonus points if he turns into a cold heartless terminator after this season
>tfw have never sent Rooster Teeth money
Man, Ironwood is really having a shit day then.
....Eh, maybe. They're similar, but it's not quite as cut and dry as people are making it out to be.
And one more stock pic of Ciel before I return to Batman Arkham Knight.
I can see it now: After the dust has settled and the battle is over and Cinder's forces have been fended off, Ruby is still down because of what happened to Penny, only to see her walking around A-OK. There will either be a heartfelt reunion where she nonchalantly admits that there's a backup of her that's regularly updated, or we get a more somber scene in which we realize that this Penny doesn't have the old Penny's memories.
"This is not a Tragedy. This was not an accident. This is what happens when you hand over your trust, your safety, your children to men who claim to be our guardians but in reality are nothing more than men. Our academies' head master's wield more power than most armies, and one was audacious enough to control both!
They cling to this power in this power in the name of peace, and yet What do we have here? One nation's attempt at a synthetic army mercilessly torn apart by another's star pupil.
What need would Atlas have for a soldier disguised as an innocent little girl? I don't think the Grimm can tell the difference. And what, I ask you, is Ozpin teaching his students? First a dismemberment and now this? Huntsmen and huntresses should carry themselves with honor and Mercy. Yet I have witnessed neither.
Perhaps Ozpin thought that defeating Atlas in the tournament would help people forget his colossal failure to protect Vale when the Grimm Invaded it's streets? Or perhaps this was his message to the tyrannical dictator That has occupied an unsuspecting kingdom with armed forces?
Honestly I haven't the slightest clue as to who is is right and who is wrong, but I know that the existence of peace is fragile. and the leaders of our kingdoms conduct their business with iron gloves. as someone who hails from Mistral I can assure you the situation there is equally undesirable. Our kingdoms are at the brink of war, yet we the citizens are left in the dark! So I ask you, when the first shots are fired, who do you think you can trust?"
There's your transcript anon and I just wanna say.
>Okay with the speech at first because my Cinder filter makes her voice acting and dialogue better than it is so I don't cringe every time she talks.

I joked about it reminding me of p3's ending yesterday, but now I regret doing so.
Cinder's phone is controlling the news feed. I'm betting on one of the good guys getting a hold of it somehow and then using it to spread a rousing speech through the airwaves to make the people feel hopeful, which will weaken the Grimm
I bet Ciel is going to be distraught.
The sheer horror of the situation will break through her autism.
anon. that's beautiful
She can help Cinder to organise things.
Rate my taste, /RWBYg/.
Vale is superfucked.
I think it's obvious who can inspire Vale the most, in its darkest hour.
Damn, I hope they do this. I'd love to hear her giving a rousing speech.
Move over Mercury a better assassin just showed up
i/e, fucking up the status quo.
I mean, short version she's clearly just fucking with everybody in order to drive panic up and get more Grimm to zero in on them, probably fuck with command and control a little. If nobody trusts Oz or Ironwood it'll be harder to get shit done
Or she does but the experience of dying has altered her personality.
>Ruby: Penny! You're alive!
>Penny: I think... I am the third one.
>honor and mercy
>when your civilzations hangs on a rope
Not really wrong, but still funny. Also, one would think that with Grimm being drawn to emotion and them being everywhere a lot of people would realize the dangers of angry mobs if all it takes is some mass riot and broken walls to draw them in.
It'll be over in 5 minutes
While I'm not sure about her being the one to give the speech, but I feel like someone or maybe a few members of the main teams trying to rouse everyone during their darkest hour would fit with the tone of the show and make for a really good prelude to the final battle as the good guys regroup and fend off the Grimm and the White Fang

Top tier Anon
There are a lot of kids in the stands, and quite frankly when a giant nevermore is knocking upon thy door most humans would not go "just stay calm - somebody will shoot it and we can all leave"
>mfw I go back to Beaconship to update mine and this is the very first choice
OH COME ON. The choice is obvious for me but still.
I hope it's a big battle against the villains. Team RWBY vvs. CEM would be cool, but grudge matches like Blake and Yang vs. Roman and Neo would be cool too.
But. ultimately, I'd like the heroes to be beaten and pushed back. I'd be far more satisfied with an ending where the villains win overall, so the next Volume is about the good guys trying to organise and push back after a crushing defeat.
> Junior needs an intact underworld to make money
He might still have it. We don't know just how badly Cinder wants to trash Vale, yet.
But yeah, wheather or not she promised him something beforehand will decide what he does.
>Emerald finds Mercury pathetically crawling around.
>"So, the shoe's on the other foot now, huh?"

>"Let's be honest; when it came to fighting that girl? You didn't have a leg to stand o--"
>"SHUT THE FUCK UP AND HELP ME! GOD, YOU SOUND JUST LIKE HER!"
>"You're no fun."
I just had the idea: What if during the final battle the bad guys taunt Ruby about what happened to Penny and what's going on around them. Then, surprise, they pissed Ruby off enough for her to tap into her powers as a Maiden, which she inherited from Summer Rose
I was really worried when Cinder said "but all they are is men". I actually thought for a second it was gonna turn into pseudo-feminist bullshit.
> Cinder's victory is imminent
> She just needs to have Emerald make Ozpin hallucinate hardcore so he'll be easier to push through and get to Amber
> Emerald sees her last and only chance
> Refuses to help unless Cinder agrees to make love to her after they win
> Cinder sighs in frustration and is forced to agree
>Cut to Ozpin looking at naked Winter
>Qrow, a word please.
Isn't he a god or something now ? Most of what I hear about comics is front my freinds, so i dont really know what's going right now. I choose him because he's one of my mains in MVC.
Go back to writing lines for Neptune you fucking toad
Man that's some bad rhetoric. If the Grimm weren't attacking then I'm pretty sure the response would've been "obvious terrorist hijacks broadcast to list conspiracy theories. People not impressed.
>having a weak ass cinder filter.
>Not just internally redubbing her voice as Grey DeLisle
Never went away.
Ren. Lie is his surname. It's written in Eastern order. Because he's fake Asian.
You are a really determined fecal poster
>But. ultimately, I'd like the heroes to be beaten and pushed back
I think that's what's going to happen at first. Next episode will likely end similarly to this one, with the heroes on the ropes. Then maybe someone gets a hold of Cinder's phone and realizes they have control over the airwaves now. Cue rousing speech. Since the Grimm feed on negative emotions, a rousing speech inspiring people could potentially weaken them and turn the tide of the battle. Then the final fight ensues and Cinder and co are eventually pushed back.
>Not fighting alone makes you a bad fighter
Don't worry, anon.
The only cause that Cinder fights for is Cinder.
You're not seriously trying to start this argument again.
That's just because of the poor quality. Honestly didn't know what she was getting at until...well shit dude I still don't know. Don't trust your government because of the terrorist attack that I'm about to commit I guess?
I hope you drop the show when Yang gets kicked around shitless
I think that Fox and Sun are going to be immune to Emerald and Neo's illusion powers because blindness and mythology gag, respectively
>Since the Grimm feed on negative emotions, a rousing speech inspiring people could potentially weaken them and turn the tide of the battle
I think negative emotion just attracts them, don't think that positive or slightly less negative emotion would repel them.
Besides, they're already in Vale, in amongst all the humans that they so despise. They're not leaving now until either they or all the humans are dead.
Well, rousing speeches during a "Do not adjust your set" moment is definitely something I've seen in many an anime before, and we all know how much this show's writers love anime tropes
Nah, we're just gonna get
Hence why it would be both Fox and Sun. Emerald has a hard time tricking more than a single person at once. Maintaining a vivid enough illusion to trick the both of them when they're both resistant to her Semblance would pretty much be impossible imo
She gets the rest of Amber's power, no matter what happens to Vale. That's her main goal. Personally I think she's going to fail at getting her hands on Amber's power and razing Vale, but there will be a post credits scene where she meets with the person she's working for and it's made clear that they're not done yet
There's no reason for Sun to be alble resist hallucinations/illusions. We already know his semblance, it's making copies of himself. Yes, I know the actual Sun Wukong could, but Sun doesn't have all his powers.
I wanted her laying down but I couldn't really find a good spot without messing with the others.
