/Trash/: when you hit rock bottom, it's only up from there
He'll be back, do you think Grey would allow his character to be written off like this?
Roughed up, still ready for battle!
quick 3 other people draw your self inserts for the rest of the team
Best pairing coming through, lancaster fags can fuck off.
>You can't hurt me Grim
2nding the return of epic hatman
I've got a prediction for next ep that I'm 90% sure won't come true but I'd lose my shit if it did
Taiyang's mission was to go find one of the other maidens. He and the maiden will make a dramatic entrance. Tai will save Blake and Yang (and maybe Sun) from Adam, and the maiden will defeat the giant Grimm with either help from Ruby or Pyrrha.
>Remnant Fact 345: Grimm make excellent EOD suits
>"Ah'll be back, in da next Volume."
Also not sure if this got posted already but dishwasher posted some awesome velvet.
Neo will come back. She wouldn't die so easily.
Holy shit, that's fantastic. Shutterbunny is best!
Same here for the longest time I also thought it was just his arm based on his comment to Glynda during the dance. Poor bastard looks like he got chomped in half by a giant Nevermore.
I prefer the cool-under-fire Adam than the Kylo Ren-lite version we've seen this episode. I don't even mind that Adam loved Blake romantically, but his reactions is a major contrast to what we have seen of him. The last thing I was expecting of him was acting like a extremely jealous violent ex. It's more cringey than threatening.
Even when he was furious at people, as shown with Cinder, Adam still managed to be control of it by telling Cinder, in a civilized manner for a terrorist group, to leave. Here, he's insane, love-obsessed, and extremely sadistic. I was expecting him to be more stoically wrathful or at least sarcastically mocking towards Blake.
The cardboard at ep 1 could have been a ruse, but yeah that's why it probably won't happen. Granted they could just cheat and have him wearing a mask and put him on a generic body (or worse off-screen battle).
The other maiden appears thing though I think has got a chance.
There just aren't enough good guys left to defeat all the badguys especially since Cinder alone will take at least 3 of them.
And I doubt Anyone except Cinder or Ozpin, could defeat the Dragon-Grimm solo.
Pretty much this.
It's like Remnant has an army of Kriegers ready to make cyborgs for nothing but enough of a Big Mac to attract a hobo.
Yeah the way he was using it as a cudgel and guard, the thing must be made of some pretty stout shit.
Yeah, looking closer those are some gnarly fucking scars, they look almost like burns or chemical scars.
I know Roman was just initially intended to be a minor character, but I am more interested in his backstory and motivations than I am for Cinder and her slaves. Roman was cool and his voice acting was one of the better ones in RWBY. I cannot deal with his death. I refuse to.
Maybe Cinder has been corrupting her.
Or maybe the fact that he knows he's too chicken shit to even try taking a swing at Cinder is upsetting him.
You don't really think they'll kill her off this season right?
Plus although Ozpin is probably strong enough to not die, he thinks he needs help to kill her (unless that too is ruse)
Tactical Turtleneck it looked like at one point.
Yeah he was wacking those bots and grim around like nothing. And revolvers in general are not meant to handle that kind of abuse IRL, they're a lot more delicate than people realize.
the miraculous recovery after her life threatening injury
also good work there m8
>Or maybe the fact that he knows he's too chicken shit to even try taking a swing at Cinder is upsetting him.
>Adam is so salty that he cannot beat Cinder that he takes it out on Blake.
Yeah, that makes some sense.
>implying it isn't the key to his personal ship
does winter know?
I'd prefer to take my OC fights seriously but I can't resist a little scrap.
Come at me.
Do you want Grimm?
Because this is how you get Grimm!
Inspiration. Slightly. The character I based him on for powers and personality was Veles, who mainpulates water and earth. Also has an affinity for snakes.
So Eli popped into my head.
Yang loves grimm, even more than Weiss. :>
>The song that plays after the credits of the last volume of RWBY
The fact that Blake is a huge useless bitch when he sees her probably doesn't help. He probably missed her, then she shows up and she's useless AND preachy and he's 100% mad. It's like you go through a nasty breakup, you picture how the other person is doing, Blake is simultaneously better and worse than Adam expects and it's frustrating and disappointing at the same time.
Yeah, I could see him getting aroused by hobos shocking each other.
>this team replaces the main cast
>how much is rwby improved?
>Dr. Light has a rolling probable cause van
I'd buy it.
Seeing how is VA is partly insane, I'd go with Oobleck
So the porn and fanservice of Yang will still flow with her new hardware, right?
Will they still potentially have the happy, smiling, flirty Yang?
Man I'm kinda now remembering the afterbuzz when Gray was commenting on how Kerry was having trouble writing and directing Adam because of how he has no eyes on his face rig to show emotion. The weird tone of his voice and his straight up murder boner for everything (that headslice on Blake) really showcased just how psychotic this fucker is. Granted, the voicework could have been done better but still, this guy is the first villain/threat I've ever felt genuine discomfort with in the whole series, even more so than Cinder.
I want him to drop his gun only for someone else to grab it in a moment of desperation. They struggle to bring it to bear and the kickback from the shot knocks them right on their ass.
I thought of that the second after I entered the post.
Honestly, he just made me want to rip that stupid fucking mask off and slit his throat with it so he'd stop fucking monologuing.
Yeah, I'm suspecting Kerry took Gray's advice when he told Kerry to just have Adam be weirdly blank and psycho while doing stuff. He's still a little forceful - but we can all now be certain he's supposed to be fucking off putting.
Not at all, because 99% of the focus is on the green stickman.
>FLLFFL alone can solo everything else! Terkoiz won all his animation fights, didn't you know?
Yeah pretty much, I mean this is pretty much the first scene in 3 volumes (outside of the cinder flashback) where we see genuine sadistic violence against not one, but two people. And it's not just casual offscreen (SOMEONE GOT HURT ERHMAGHERD) violence but actual visible gore. The only thing that comes close was the Amber bug scene and that was basically just bugkake and an arrow to the chest.
Can't keep Yang down man, she'll be smiling and cracking jokes in no time!
fuck you, green stickman has a great character arc involving his survivor's guilt and his constant struggle to fit in with people who havent been exposed to violence like him
hes a deep character
Far off speculation but it wouldn't surprise me if there used to be someone there that made bigger decisions, and Adam hadn't stepped into the role very well and was falling back on his skillset without politics to back it up.
Then don't have him do it. Give Adam lines that aren't shit and get a better voice actor for him.
Make Adam not some cringy teenager but an apathetic sociopath. The no emotions thing could actually play into their favor.
I think it's more based on Vash the Stampede's revolver. It has a similar design.
So, Adam's model is literally like the 3rd rig actually built for a human character and he has a mask covering half his face. So in technical terms, he's very hard to emote as opposed to everybody else. This is a directorial problem because you can't use the facial expression to complement the script or the acting.
Cinder's stone cold and we know how much Merc likes to Irk - but Adam is one of the few people we've seen who is vindictive, sadistic and both emotionally and physically violent. Merc and Cinder could both say "nothing personal, kid" and I'd believe them - I don't think Adam has a "not personal" setting.
Definitely, the way he was casually about to off that defenseless student and then Blake, that's one stone cold fucker for sure.
Part of the problem is that Gray admitted that Adam has the 4th oldest face rig in the entire cast. He was designed before even yang and doesn't have the articulation that other models have. Why they haven't updated in the several years since then is a mystery but there ya go.
Generally in animation, but Anime in particular eyes are "windows to the soul". A lot of emotion is communicated via the eyes, It's a common trope in anime, when pupils dialate or go blank, they can show a lot of emotion/feeling without even having to show expression.
Penny's a perfect example. When she was "alive" you could see her pupils and generally conveyed a warm/happy feeling. When she got cut up, you saw how her fake eyes went all monotone and out of focus showing a complete lack of emotion or "soul".
>And it's not just casual offscreen (SOMEONE GOT HURT ERHMAGHERD) violence but actual visible gore.
Not to take away from your point, but sometimes hurting someone offscreen can be just as scary, provided the victim is sufficiently traumatized and doesn't give too many details about it. The audience is forced to fill in the blank themselves.
Maybe the Grimm masks are making them go craycray.
It's also cause Adam, with his aura slicing blade could actually destroy the whole team. Everyone on the team would get shredded. Everyone on the team don't have a fallback to taking shots.
Ruby would definitely get sliced apart. Yang...yeah. Blake has the best chance wity her semblance+ dust. I want to say Weiss could use her summoning but Adam would cut that up.
Comapred to JNPR. Jaune has a shield and some armor. Ditto with Pyrrha. Ren probably has Martial arts. Nora would have the biggest problem but around the same amount as RWBY.
Just got me to realize that without aura, most of the charachters are weak sauce. They rely on aura too much.
i am so fucking pumped for the finale fuck me these seven days need to FLY
i can't believe a main character got maimed, i was not expecting this at all
also i agree with the anon who's saying that adam is the most horrifying villain
roman was simply trying to save himself, cinder simply lusts for power
adam is actually a bloodthirsty sociopath. it's a shame that his voice gets in the way of people liking him.
Well, when Cinder holds them over a barrel, Adam is originally planning to retreat with his force to Mistral. I don't know if he's meant to be the head for the whole organization as opposed to say like a "war-leader" or field general who leads the force to actually do their operations while older, more experienced people do the big scale planning.
I definitely feel like somebody "programmed" him to be a killing machine in some way, if supposedly all he really wanted was to be with Blake.
>Maybe the Grimm masks are making them go craycray.
Something does make me want to think that there's something more to the masks Adam and the WF mooks wear than hurr durr symbolism.
What makes RWBYg different or unique from the RWBY tag on Tumblr and r/RWBY
What is your culture
Welp.. Today started out okay. Then went to shit. Sleep well everyone.. I'll see you tomorrow..
Or maybe not..
Yeah, Adam seems to revel in causing pain, or at least has absolutely zero compunction dishing it out Em seems to have regrets, Merc wants to have fun, and Cinder is just keikakuing so I can't figure out her emotional range yet.
Oh yeah don't get me wrong, the delivery was cringeworthy, they def need to either re do his VA , his lines or both.
True, but I don't know if/when M&K will be able to properly convey that. >>79642654
Yeah the trick with Adam seems to be the more you attack and he blocks, the stronger his blade gets. That's a really fucked scenario then, you have to dispatch him in one hit and you can't let him block it otherwise he'll turn that energy around on you and slice you clean through.
We suck Jaune's dick more than any other RWBY place on the internet.
Of course, hero with a past that made them the stoic they are in the present. And we got to see it happen instead of getting a flashback of it. As long as she's still soft on her little sis and those close to her!
Really? I never got that impression.
The older women being attracted to him running gag is a bit wanky but everything else seems to be a joke at his expense.
The jokes about him being good at sex are always so people can say his sisters raped him.
The jokes about him learning to grapple always end in gay jokes and people making fun of him.
The jokes about him getting good in the Souls way always end in Pyrrha suffering.
Well, we have some more...interesting people here, some of whom are not afraid to share their dark fantasies (which is fine).
We also edit the hell out of certain images, like this one
>What makes RWBYg different from the RWBY tag on Tumblr
We don't need to change the characters skin color to feel validation from an unexisten character and get the selfsteem we lack.
Its only been a day but I miss the neoposter is he really not gonna post anymore?
We aren't inhabited by lesbians and sjw's.
>green stickman is the oldest hunter at beacon
>gets held back because he intentionally fails just to see how shitty the next generation of hunters year after year is
>lands with team ANON
>The older women being attracted to him running gag is a bit wanky but everything else seems to be a joke at his expense.
Even that is a joke at his expense.
Don't toy with my emotions, anon.
I'll bet not for a while. I could see his fighting being too difficult for a non-Monty animator. They used so many animation tricks for SSSN's fight with NDGO, there was barely any Sunchucking!
What's with tumblr artists and the manly faces? Most RWBY art I have seen from tumblr has them.
They look way better than the older ones, still have those disturbing souless eyes. And somehow they messed up Yang really bad.
>Weiss cutting the Paladin in half without knowing if someone was inside or not
>these are supposedly realistic proportions for characters that spend every day running around killing monsters
I AM THE LIGHT OF MY BUNNY
UPDATED TEEM ANON SHOT
As cool as Velvet's weapon was, I'm still a little sad she didn't release a mini demonic bunny that wrecked face. Yeah yeah it's an old trope but still...
Cinder's got glass Dust, glassy slippers, and she retreated from her attack on the communications tower by midnight.
Sometimes I wonder if Raven's other influence besides Branwen is the Evil Stepmother.
Glass slippers, bro. Also, y'know being beautiful and talented - assuming she has a banal or neglected childhood in there somewhere.
Godmother is probably the "she" she's talking about w/ Ozpin and who she talked to in her MGS phonecall-type flashback.
Team RWBY got wrecked hard in this episode. Adam alone is strong enough to take on Yang, probably the physically strongest character of RWBY, and Blake without even trying at all. How are they even going to defeat Cinder and her misfits?
>rwby and jnpr have 8 members
>Minus wiess there are seven

Pretty sure she was referring to her boss/ fairy god mother

Hey if she gets a sweet cyborg arm like Ironwood it's all good mang.
I don't think it was in there, or at least I didn't catch it watching the scene twice.
Who's ready for a whole hiatus of arm jokes?! God I hate you all.
How ya doin, report anon?
Seriously, seeing Neo get spooked/frightened for only the 2nd time in the goddam series was freaking sweet.
Aw, somebody remembered my UBW chant reference. Considering how serious the rest of it turned out I kind of prefer "Aura is my body, Dust is my blood", but I think the original way is cuter.
Their (lack of) logic is amazing.
>Watch show about cute girls
>I don't like cute girl, let's make them ugly
>I don't like them being white, let's give them different skin tones
>I don't like them being skinny, let's make them fat.
>If you are goint to change everything why even like the show then?
I wonder if everything she snaps can be weaponized. Maybe if she snapped Zwei or a lil bunny they'd be battle ready?
I wish RT would give Velvet an Instagram or something...
>How are they even going to defeat Cinder and her misfits?
The tournament arc ended, so now begins the much anticipated training arc
Ruby will train under one of the 3 legendary Huntresses, Weiss will enter the Hyperbolic Ice Chamber to summon, Blake will see no hear no evil black writing on the wall and become the Ultimate Lifeform, and Yang will train for 2 years to finetune her Seblance
Seems like it's just weapons given how she was zeroing in on Sun's nunchucks (his booty!). Then again she did take a pic of Ruby without her weapon so you might actually be on to something...summoned clones of people when?
>probably the physically strongest character of RWBY
If anything Raven is stronger than him, looks like she may have taught him how to fight a long time ago
>similar weapons and fighting styles
Well excuuuse me, I could take this more seriously but I'd take too long.
Speaking of Yoyos.
>I wish RT would give Velvet an Instagram or something...
That would have literally been the best foreshadowing if they made a social media page for velvet and all she posted was pictures of blurry people and weapons.
So the Maiden powers are undefined right? just massive powers that for the sake of story can be pretty much any and everything?.
What are the chances of Neo going after a Maiden with the ability to bring things back from the dead?
So not so well then. It'll be ok, report anon!
Plus she also snapped Weiss' Knight summoning, although it might just have been the sword. Or maybe she actually does like photography! There were certainly some killer moments during that invasion. Think of the likes, people!
Adorable, and foreshadow...ble!
Well, let's be honest, it's because many of them aren't cute, white or skinny and have no appreciation of subtlety, or they have some weird shitty solidarity thing going on. And you can't relate or like somebody who doesn't fit your weird diversity self-image, anon.
What adam is going to do that new hand?
How will yang learn to fight with one hand (hopefully no shitty, "Ironwood gave me a robot hand and now I'm stronger than ever")
Will Roman ever not job?
Find out when this show ever gets good.
since i realized this needs a (shittily drawn) explanation diagram
its basically a katana where the blade can unlock and then be whipped around like a urumi
Caiti's the Earth version of Velvet, that's how.
Got that right. I popped in on the ExtraLife stream after I got back from a dance marathon I did that day, and they were just adorable. Caiti was being team mom while everyone else was losing their shit and getting a little TOO drunk.
I know. It's such a shame they didn't take off. That shit's so much fun.
If I was a reporter, wouldn't I want more fanfiction hating people here? If he's from /a/, he has at least the slightest standards and would think fanfiction is the cringiest shit on the planet. Believe it or not, the majority of 4chan thinks fanfics are a cancer that only Reddit and Tumblr would produce.
Yeah, he did kind of basically sit out the first 3 volumes before suddenly leaping out as a threat right at the end there.
Yang selfie game will never be the same.
So what are the odds Roman goes all Hannibal Chau?
Never saw those. Now you'll make me look for them.
I know, It would great if they used it once on a while at least to tweet to each other in character. Maybe share some useless facts about the characters
Just look how fun the Facerig Q&A was.
Ooh. Soldier on, anon. We all have the potential to find a Caiti 'round the corner!
Heart attack and dies within seconds. If he somehow survives, he starts flirting with disarmed Yang.
Yeah but now ALL the art is gonna be robo'd or one-armed. Like, I'd feel totally different about that picture if it had a robo hand. Not worse, mind you, just different. It just has a different feel.
It's the style of yo-yo.
I like butterfly because they feel better in the hand in my opinion.
>My Harvest moon Character from MM
He tries to wooh Cinder with various gifts everyday before giving her the blue feather and marrying her.
or uses the Hammer, Sickle, and Fishing pole as weapons
Budget Vergil is still motivated enough.
Just beat M&L Bpwser's Inside Story.
>"Hmph, fleeing people in terror, tons of property damage. Not too shabby, lady. But I'm not letting anyone beat me at the villain game so get ready for a knuckle sandwich!!"
>[YOKO SHIMOMURA INTENSIFIES]
I'm liking this.
>Ciri from The Witcher 3
She's borderline superhuman and has had training for slaying deadly monsters that make grimm look like pussies since she was a pre-teen, except without the luxury of semblances and auras
She also now how god-like abilities that let her travel between dimensions and phase in and out of reality, attacking multiple targets at once
She'll actually fit in the world of Remnant as a huntress perfectly. In fact she'll probably make a better huntress than all the others
Yes even better than your waifu, fite me faggot
I want Ruby to decapitate him with surprise super speed.
>Best Resident Evil girl
I kinda have a feeling 9mm won't do much to the Grimm
>Because he is an adult presumably
How old is Adam anyways? If he's more than 5 years older than Blake, then their relationship is kind of creepy, and I'm getting a strange vibe that he's way older than he looks, similar to how Qrow looks like his 30, but is probably 40-something.
>Adam and Taiyang face off
>Adam draws his sword
>"Pretty nice, kid. I had a teammate with a weapon like that once"
>Adam tries to iaijutsu Taiyang, Tai stops it with one finger
>"You're not as good as she is, though"
>Punches Adam in his smug face
You'd need at least .45 of STOPPING POWAH.
Would he rip Adam's hands off to make him even with his daughter?
When will we see Ruby do this?
Within 5 years is my guess. Given his now slightly one-sided interest, I'm picturing a kind of older brother/protector/mentor figure which kind of evolved into overprotective and then creepy possessive relationship. They probably met young when they were both part of the White Fang Youth.
It'll probably turn into this tragic thing where he only set out to make the perfect world he envisioned with his love, but his hands are so soaked in blood not even she wants anything to do with him anymore. It's perfect fairytale morals melodrama.
>They're now dropped into the middle of Vale while Cinder is keikakuing, how do they fare?
>Charisma 1 sniper.
>Geared towards stealth with hilariously ridiculous vat and crit chances.
He needs to get his hands on some local rifles.
Then his socially awkward ass will save the world again.
It's pretty clear that Blake leaving did something to him. Combined with being forced to work with Cinder and other stuff we probably don't know about, it's not that strange that he's nuts.
I love this duo than I do the entire show, why must fate work against the good things?
quick fuckers we've got to post fluff and develop more TEEM ANON shit
>"So you think you can just cut off Yang's hand like that"
>"What are you, her father"

>"heh... Wait, what is that supposed to mean"

Probably because it's a fuck huge RPG not some CUHRAZEE action game
I've still waiting on next episode to see if he makes a return. If not then I'm out
>Protag of Armored Core For Answer
They'd be fine.
Nothing in Remnant can match the NEXTS.
I kind of wish I had the script for the episode to check back on, but doesn't he say in response to Blake saying she wants peace and equality all he "wants" is her? In that kind of "we can't always get what we want" tone. It really does strike me as a guy who was basically shaped to do one thing, but before it was cool because he got to be with Blake - but when she left and Cinder's been bossing him around he doesn't really have anything but the violent revolution left in him.
I assume his violent psycho knob was already set at like 9 or 10 and then Blake ditched him he just turned it to 11 and then broke it off.
So I just watched the episode.
Things really got out of hand huh?
If this happens and people just accept it I'd be beyond pissed
Yes, that's what he says. I'm guessing he always was a little bit of an extremist, by the time of the train scene he already had lost his moral horizon, but still had Blake as his support. His beloved Blake leaving was the trigger.
They'll be fine
same can't be said for everyone else though
"There I was holding my dick like a civilized man" - Gus Sorola 2016
He is a bull faunus who you can't fight head-on or he'll fuck you up, the irony is fighting him like a matador would probably be most effective.
The chances of Roman being dead are high.
Neo isn't dead because her being dead would go against what RT have confirmed.
1.She's gonna have spoken lines
2.She's gonna fight Yang again.
Rooster Teeth actually did a job countering one cliche with another.
On one hand:
>Died exactly like a cliche family cartoon villain would: getting he is just desserts in the middle of a "why I'm superior" speech
On the other hand:
>In a battle "anime" and wasn't explicitly killed onscreen
Of course, the reality just comes down to being whether RT ever wants to use him again or milk him for cameo popularity.
I can't even imagine how people figure there's any possibility that Neo is kill. Roman at least you could argue for based on the dramatic irony of it happening immediately after his survival speech; but that's just a surface analysis of the scene, and going any deeper one immediately remembers that he's the cockroach of the show.
>The chances of Roman being dead are high.
No, there is no chance. Roman survives everything in exchange for being thwarted at every turn. We may not see him for a while, but he will come back.
I feel like Adam's being blown out of proportion. He's currently just a glorified mook who was bullied into helping Cinder.
It would be pretty neat if he somehow stole the show though.
>Cinder shows up with the Fall maiden power
>Mercury's face when
