/Trash/: when you hit rock bottom, it's only up from there
i can swear we already had this edition with the same image.
Adam is going to keep calling her beloved, my darling, love etc through the whole fight, and Blake has a flashback revealing the real reason she had to leave the White Fang was Adam was a clingy creep madly in love with her when not planning how to bring people to their knees.
We did someone came in who never watched the show asked who the hot monkey chick was bunch of people messed with him then someone explained it was a male character female fan art version.
yuP, chat what you can, and always have three topics on stand by and adapt
works for me
>Neo takes the hit and ends up dying
>Next volume, Ruby goes through a moral crisis, sees herself as a no-good murderer
>Roman goes on a heart-broken rampage, letting his own feelings overbear his devotion to Cinder and her plans
>Eventually the villain team weakens, as they find themselves fighting each other just as much as the protags
>All this tension makes the Grimm stronger, and they turn out to really be the big bad of the series
>None of this will ever happen
this sums up the episode prett well actually
the chemistry would be fucking ridiculous with these two
but hell, id watch it unfold
How many times do you think Sun both whacked and shot himself with them learning to use them effectively?
I mean, while they said it was "canon", they were also joking around so up to you how seriously you take it, but there's a few things here and there - Ruby for instance she had to study hard with Qrow before she could build Crescent Rose, but Yang built Ember Celica on her own the first try - saying Yang is "naturally gifted". There were a couple other things I'm trying to remember. It's pretty cute and not that cringey, you could just watch it.
Ruby won't win in the sense of beating them down, but will manage to get them off the ship or damage it to the point they all have to bail.
Adam will beat that pussy up while talking about all the other times he beat that pussy up.
As it stands, Yang is still the wild card. We have no idea which fight she's gonna head for or if she'll find one of her own.
I'm holding out hope for Merc getting a rematch where he doesn't have to job.
>Next volume, Ruby goes through a moral crisis, sees herself as a no-good murderer
The bitch tried to kill her fucking sister.
Got several hundred civilians killed, hunters, let Grimm into the city.
This is entiely dependent on Ruby being an utter idiot.
I should be disgusted...but...fuck it 4chan it is....
>Cinder not winning
Are you guys seeing this?
Lets do a little writing exercise.
Take something from this season and say how you would change it. Explain the arc the character could go through and how they change in the end.
See >>79607337 for an example.
There's a big difference between killing monsters that are, according to Remnant's propaganda machine, the evil incarnate, that only want to kill humans and destroy creations and have no soul.
And in a world where your soul can be measured and expressed in a number, having no soul is a big deal of not having mercy.
Grimm are essentially degraded to moving targets.
But killing a human, even killing a robot with an aura, is an entirely different story...
(And, fyi, Pyrrha was an elite fighter, and a lot more mature than Ruby will ever be. Yet still she was destroyed by killing Penny, and she will have Flashbacks of that once the adrenalin rush from the Battle of Beacon ends)
But we've already had several situations in the show where humans have proven to be the greater threeat. And the school prioritizes sparring with other aura users over just grimm.
That Yang Cosplayer got her Season 2 outfit.
How would you make a gravity manipulation semblance work?
>was an elite fighter,
Well being an elite fighter doesn't nessaccerly make you a killer.
Several incredibly viscous boxers were mentally and emotionally ruined after killing people in the ring.
They just felt so devastated.
I met her at a con and she was an actual angel, by the way. She's seriously so nice.
also she picked me up and made me feel very special
and made me question my sexuality. a lot.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. Is Octavian still here?
Ma Waifu! Noooo
Gonna need some more of that.
Also, don't know if you know, but Adam totally banged your waifu. She definitely rode the bull. We've been making jokes since the preview, and they rhyme with "full genus". Blake takes it by the horns.
If it's really gravity, she should be able to influence an existing gravitation field.
At first only Remnants, but if she gets stronger, at some point she could maybe increase the gravity of a dust particle so much that she could use it as a real fighting force or something.
>Jaune kills his first man
>Everyone keeps telling him that they will be there to support him. How emotionally devastating it must be for him to do that.
>Jaune sleeps like a baby.
That bothers him more than the actual killing.
Don't wanna be rude, but it just seems like she begging for people to look at her. That doesn't really do it for me
Or Layle's from Crystal bearers. How well it works depends on distance and maybe weight.
With all the talk of waifus here, you should have known better.
I wore a RWBY hoodie to class yesterday because I figured why the hell not
and it's art school, everyone has shit taste in stuff, I'd probably meet another RWBY-fag.The following happens
>walking to class
>Someone from behind says "Hey I like your hoodie"
>Turn around, it's a cute grill
>I say thanks
>She follows with "Yeah, my girlfriend is obsessed with that show"
I thought it was all ironic. Guess I was wrong.
>everyone is worried about him
Ok, you really should have known better than that.
Kind of rightto a degree. She's a sweet girl.
YES. OH MY GOD. I'VE BEEN TALKING TO HER ON AND OFF FOR A WHILE. SHE'S BEEN LOOKING EVERYWHERE FOR YOU. MESSAGE HER ON TUMBLR. TELL HER SLEEPY SENT YOU
>implying it doesn't belong to
>implying the statue of his "ancestor" doesn't have only one arc on its shield
I can't punch her she could probably murder me
also I'm not that tsundere
SERIOUSLY?? OH MY GOD??? OKAY YEAH I. I CAN DO THAT. THANK YOU BASED ANON I LOVE YOU SO MUCH[/SPOILER]
Yes, can this be the official RWBYg ship?
Wait, anon, you're the hot Junior from RTX? What the fuck. I didn't know there were hot people on this thread.
Your cosplay was really nice. [Spoiler] I was the creeper guy who took your picture about four times with the stupid Donut helmet.[/spoiler]
Reminder that this is how you end up getting Garrett Striders.
I didn't care about the quality of the music while playing.
The timing was what I liked about it, it got me pumped as hell. That moment when you get Monsoon to 40%, it still makes me shudder.
Also, that's not screamo.
Filth. A degenerate piece of shit sociopath cop slowly goes insane and thinks there's a talking tapeworm in him.
Guy is really only haunted by the fact that he is not haunted by the things he's done.
There is Neo X Winter art, Neo ships with everyone.
I thought the bit where he learned wrestling was fucking hilarious.
>Just holds the guy down until help arrives.
>Wins them over through human contact and talking.
There was also the idea that his special thing would just be endurance and cardio.
Might as well give you the whole thing.
Why are you guys so fascinated with this particular greentext?
There's two distinct schools of thought when it comes to making Jaune better.
Let's make him competent and lets make him amazingly baddass because we want to make refrences and self insert into him.
This is already far above bug rape in strangeness.
As much shit as people gave him, the guy who kept bringing up the grinding wrestler archetype had a pretty good idea.
It fits and while it emphasizes and changes to a degree his best traits heavily it's not really all that wanky.
It's basically the competent way to bang your head against a wall until the wall breaks. Like you're wearing a helmet and the wall is padded.
Well it's basically Jaune competently defending himself until the other guy is too exhausted to fight back. It's one of the most boring fighting styles to the average layman. So it fits Jaune.
Honestly I dont mind if Jaune never has any special semblance that makes him op
I like him as he is now, my charisma brave goof ball who needs a talking to every once in awhile
And I can say the same about Ace Combat, Persona and Kingdom Hearts references. But people just want to have fun, if you don't like the Metal Gear references that's just like you're opinion man.
Bandage your chest
and who gives, anon, there are people who do normal cosplays but dont even try
I say go for it
Raiden was originally created by Kojima as a self-insert for the player to show how pathetic they are compared to Solid Snake. MGS2 was meant to be the last game in the series since Kojima was tired of Metal Gear, so he wanted to point out to the player that this was all a video game and that they're not some great bad ass like Solid Snake. Snake is who we want to be, Raiden is who we are.
Than Metal Gear had to continue.
Can't we just
Who cares if they think it's lazy, fuck 'em
>I guess I'm just being a grumpy Gus
I'm guessing this is an RT reference, see I can say the same to you since I don't watch any RT content besides RWBY. If you want to talk about something else you could always ignore the posts.
Totally dissipates. I hope you'd a good live until this point if you're planning on committing suicide.
>Guy drops his chocolate and strawberry ice cream cone
>Wants to scream, but so mad it comes out as whisps of hate
>So mad he pops a blood vessil in his eye, changing his eye color in the blink of a eye
>Throws his umbrella
I just like cosplay, male or female. There's lots of interesting costumes out there.
This, though. Every time someone MIGHT be female, there's a handful of thirsty dudes losing their shit about it.
I mean, I like seeing cosplay pics, don't get me wrong, but these guys turn into those gulls from Finding Nemo. "PICS? PICS? PICS? PICS? BOOBS?"
My inner /cgl/ is losing it's shit right now.
Oh, slightly worse. Meh, it's jokes. Pull it together, people.
No character to speak of and since Jaune is growing more as a character and acquiring character traits they can't even pretend to have people are looking for self insert alternatives.
This might just be a bad shot and the fabric could be fine, but if it's not a bad picture, then the fabric is basically a step above costume silk.
Also because I'm a nitpicky bastard, the seamwork is really shoddy, and she needs to iron the dress or get rid of the wrinkles with steam or something.
Crack ships never triumph, here to help calm the nerves.
Ah ok, I can see some of that now. I don't criticize too much on materials because I know that some people are limited on budget, and plus I just don't value that aspect too much, but I can see why it'd bug people.
She DEFINITELY needs to iron it though, no doubt about that. Cmon, girl! I hate ironing shit too, but it makes a difference.
Holding such information isn't good for you anon
>Hell, I don't even see any namefags in /trash/
I don't judge people too harsh on their materials so long as they aren't using cosplay silk or similar materials. I don't expect people to afford velvets and actual silk (god knows I usually can't) but certain fabrics kill me, y'know.
The ironing though...it's so easy...every hotel has irons, and you can get them for so cheap too, so why not iron?? Jeez.
I get you. A little ironing definitely makes a world of difference with a minimal amount of effort. I was blessed with a friend who helped me make some alterations to a costume and she just ran the iron over it a few times.
Although pretty much any I met was too drunk to notice...I noticed!
Uh, maybe is it a quirk of Cinder's weapon? There needs to be something to clip the two blades into a bow.
I hope the artist does a doujinshi for each of the main girls and a few of the supporting ones.
Yang combined with her semblance on
I was hoping the same thing, the style is really good
Ruby's attacks are so slow Neo had time to change outfits.
>"Finally, I've been waiting for this day."
>"Mercury, please don't."
>"I'm not looking, Is he attaching the dildos in place of his feet?"
>"Yes Cinder, yes he is."
>"I thought I burned them..."
Nah behind the scenes Ruby and Neo were close friends but every time Ruby wanted to introduce Neo to her friends Neo acted super shy and reluctant.
They were close enough that Neo would sneak in to her room every night and they would spend quality time together quietly on Ruby's bed.
What if Ruby is assumed dead after the next episode and the other 3 girls split to venture into their own story lines for a volume?
He's five foot eleven. Jaune's what six feet?
And anyways that would ve kind of nice. For all the fight scenes in RWBY the archetypes and philosophies of fighting styles are largely absent.
Who will join Tukson and Penny tomorrow?
>But we already have the get hit talk shit type. And that's Yang.
Yeah but it would be nice to have a bit more variety in how people carry themselves differently. Because aside from the weapons Neo is really the only one who fights in a way that isn't just move forward and style your way to victory.
And in terms of actual fighting styles when the weapons are removed everyone is throwing the same kicks and punches.
But you can dance to the side or back and still knock the shit out of somebody.
Yang is stupid enough to walk onto punches. Mercury's fight with her could have easily turned into him jamming her back with his long legs and nailing her head and body.
The variety just isn't there. People throw flurry after flurry after flurry and then switch roles. Neo was really the only one so far to let Yang walk herself onto trouble.
Yang's semblance and style kinda necessitate that she walks into trouble. Her whole M.O. is pressure, tanking blows and throwing heavy hits.
Mercury on the other hand is far more acrobatic. He probably could have avoided all of Yang's strikes if he wasn't going to throw the match. Neo and Mercury are without a doubt the worst opponents for Yang since they don't go for trades and rely more on evasion than blocking.
>Her whole M.O. is pressure, tanking blows and throwing heavy hits.
If she was a bit more measured she could improve greatly. Even if her semblance is based on taking shots, getting punched in the face repeatedly is nothing to laugh at.
For Yang her semblance should be more of the backup plan than her go to stuff.
Here's my suggestion:
Give up and embrace it, anon.
I think we all know who Glynda is looking at.
>happening: the episode comes out tomorrow
>I have work from 8 to 4
Because Ruby doesn't like
artificial strawberry flavoring
Really this goes back to an aspect of the character we're only really starting to understand 3 years later - yang seems like she's never really had a lot of tough fights before. Sure, she's been beaten up a few times but her Semblance just lets her bounce back. She's not used to people actually having a superior skill or power level in a way that matters.
Well, I think Ruby mentions Yang training with Sr. when she talked with her mom, and even so Taiyang is a teacher at Signal, but at the same time, what we know about Taiyang is that he's a little protective but also a bit goofy - and Yang is easy-going most of the time. I'm not picturing them sitting down and having a serious training session without something like what's happening right now to emphasize it. He might have just figured 4 years of Combat School and 4 Years Huntress training would sort her.
Also, we assume they have a similar style but don't know. Vol 3 seems to be leading to a point where our heroines are going "we need to git gud".
All of team RWBY rely heavily on their semblances. Ruby mixes her scythe play with self-propelling recoils and her speed bursts, Weiss uses dust and glyphs to either overpower or outmaneuver, Blake has her clones to evade and confuse, and Yang literally face tanks hits and trades up. The second someone shows they can overcome their semblance they fall apart
>Ruby getting kicked by Merc
>Weiss grabbed and slammed by Banesaw
>Blake's first fight with Roman has him easily defend and predict her
>Yang getting toyed with by Neo
Weiss can probably fix her utility/I'm squishy problems for 1v1 by mastering summoning. She's a caster/fencer right now so power/tank fighters like Banesaw are a pretty solid counter regardless, especially with terrain advantage.
Blake has her utility go up and her predictability go down when she combines her Semblance with Dust (if we ever remember that's a thing not just Monty wanted to do something cool). We know her weapon is intended to upgrade eventually though.
You're right about Ruby and Yang being overspecialized though. Even without full Semblance use Ruby is all about high speed high impact, it's great for Grimm but easy to counter with people, and we've all seen Yang get beat at her own game. Rubes needs to broaden her horizons a little, and somebody needs to teach Yang how to counter attack without throwing her face into the blow or maybe complement her Super Saiyan powers with a kamehameha. Or at least hadouken.
Is Ruby so cute/adorable/innocent that she brings out the autism in you RWBYg,
like talking to your crush and you're trying real hard not to let your autism take over and attempt to hug her akwardly and you got butterflies in your stomach
Post cute Rubes so I can feel this feel again
>needs to teach Yang how to counter attack without throwing her face into the blow
She also needs to learn how to move forward.
Those hooks look nice but the straighter shots will always win. And watching her fight I get the feeling that she's too nice for her own good.
>Those hooks look nice but the straighter shots will always win. And watching her fight I get the feeling that she's too nice for her own good.
>Yang holding back because she doesn't like hurting people
Aaawwww. That's cute.
I think we've gone too far
>Aaawwww. That's cute.
It's also going to get her ass kicked.
If you look at the Arslan fight, Arslan was nearly bent over in half at one point and instead of kneeing her or uppecutting her or holding her to the ground and soccer kicking her she threw this lazy looping round house to the head.
Have care how you speak, anon.
>And watching her fight I get the feeling that she's too nice for her own good.
Well, y'know, Yang is "yangry", but she's not really vicious or violent. Her power grows as violence is done to her after all. She lets the heat of the moment get to her when she's in a fight, and she's got a couple of hair triggers, but at the same time she doesn't go cruising the streets for a rumble or running her own fight club. The thing with Junior started related to her quest for her mom and then Junior decided to keep it a violent confrontation. The second time she visits she doesn't feel the need to beat anybody up even though they all pointed guns at her.
This got a little long-winded but the point is yang is supposed to be the kind of happy-go-lucky sort who switches to "100% MAD" on a dime, she's not a sadistic murdermachine - even if she's close enough Cinder can trick you into thinking it. The closest she's gotten to a life-and-death is with Neo and, well, Neo's style puts her at odds anyway.
See above about "life-and-death", the tournament is supposed to be a friendly (but serious) competition. I think the most vicious fighters we saw were Merc and Em - who are effectively playing for keeps.

I honestly thought Yats was just going to be a mean motherfucker. The way the guy looked just screamed killer.Just Matt Browning on everyone.
Good people can fight viciously. The nicest people usually do. I just wish they would do that in RWBY.
Listen man, You obviously don't know what it feels like to truly fall in love with something
Whether it may be a real person or a character, everyone gets that feeling that makes them happy to be in love
Now post Rubes
Personally, I like it for Jaune suffering. He's really only interested in girls his own age, but the only women who express interest in him are much older than he is.
Late to the discussion (so many threads) so my proposal on Jaune's competence:
Masterful tactician by which I mean "tell Pyrrha which unlucky bastard looked at him funny" and hope for the best. If it's Cinder & Co., tell her he lost his viriginity to them.
Also, said older women want to abuse and humiliate him.
If I were projecting my fantasies into Jaune I'd ship him more with Weiss but I prefer Lancaster.
>Treating Blake like both property and a slut
Right, but I'm exaggerating a little to get my point across. Even if Yang's temper flares in a fight, she's probably not going to do much vicious or underhanded. If she's angry her solution is just "hit it more" and doesn't get into specifics. If she's not angry, she's not taking it serious enough to go "I can probably just shove this person over and punch them in the back of the head until they stop". She could probably resolve conflicts more efficiently but that's not her style.
Well, I pegged him as a gentle giant to be honest, since one of his first moves is to shield Velvet, but he trash-talks a good game.
Part of the issue though is that you're probably not going to get a lot of mean fighters in Hunting Academies, or at least I wouldn't think so. Primary combat training is sparring with fellow students - who are supposed to be your future fellow warriors for humanity. Even in the tournament it's done under the auspices of global unity. Cinder makes a point out of Yang and Pyrrha being more "vicious" than they should be to fellow student. Hunters aren't necessarily being taught to fight and kill their fellow man.
>she's a slut
>implying that they aren't actually fight over her
barbed cat dick
Don't worry, this is the last one (plus a bonus of it with little Jaune saying "Up!")
All of them except Nora are.
>talking to weeb crush
>about to spill spaghetti
>get a nosebleed
>mfw she gets what's happening
The first time I posted this here, someone commented that while it's meant to imply that his sisters passed out from nosebleeds, it looks like Lil Jaune murdered his entire family.
