/trash/: when you hit rock bottom, it's only up from there
Neo is going to have words (and stabs) with you buddy
Babam! Thanks to a friend for helping me with this when we were both mangled at 4:00 am.
Valentine's Glynda definitely a strong candidate
>what seems like everyone sad about Pyrrha's death and the ending to this volume
>Me just over here like meh
I want to impregnate Neo and start a mute family with her.
second-lastsong you listened to is the song that Monty, Roman, Penny and Pyraha are dancing to in DDR. How does it go down? I'll start:
Pretty standard, if I do say so myself
>Emerald changed sides
>Tricked Cinder with an illusion and saved Pyrrha
anyone else feel as though they are just killing characters for the sake of getting a reaction out of their audience
well, except maybe for Pyrrha, her death flags have been raised for a while
I guess this is most appropriate for valentine's day.
Nothing will be able to replace him
So when the hell is chapter 3 of the manga?
Well Roman they specifically mentioned they had stretched his tenure way longer than they had any intention to. He was supposed to disappear after volume 1 but kept him due to fan reaction. Penny was probably yeah for shock value, but then again, considering they had Pyrrha's death scene planned out for nearly 3 years, who knows at this point?
Anybody got any screen caps of Tumblrs meltdown over the final?
>Penny-Drones, Roman-Rooters, and Pyrrha-fans completely wrecked in this Volume.
BB I WILL END YOU
The main things I like about Emerald are her being a smug, tricky villain, and her relationship with Cinder. Such a move would destroy both of those!
Didn't you see the big crowd with Ruby?
They have alot of characters now, either they go Naruto and have them have their own stories with their teams or they are fodder that will die off
Roman seemed like a death for the sake of reaction, since they just didn't need him anymore.
Penny and Pyrrha seemed to be to move the plot forward, which isn't bad but just made me feel nothing compared to other deaths in shows.
I felt nothing with penny's death and just sort of laughed knowing it was coming, and with Pyrrha I just feel skeptical that she's even dead.
I don't think so. Even if it was, they were coincidentally effective. Either way, I think it is good to see that they actually have the balls to off a few characters. I'm not sure it could be put past them that they would get revived, but I'll get my hopes up for now.
Roman was on borrowed time since the beginning, but probably not completely dead.
Penny death had some plot significance.
The Fall maiden's death was a point before her character was even introduced.
No because you can say the same for every character death in any story
>Dumbledore died? Shock value
>Romeo and Juliet died? Shock value
>Aeris died? Shock value
>Mufasa died? Shock value
Chapter 3's already out. Weiss fights the Knight (which is apparently a Grimm of some sort).
Speaking of the manga, remember that volume 2 teases an upcoming hatman appearance? By Salem, we're getting a little more official Roman content!
>Pyrrha has a photoshoot of her exact death done almost two and a half years ago
>Penny was needed to set the finale into motion
>Roman had already lasted 3 volumes longer than intended
Roman dying could have been avoided, but I suppose they needed to get him out of the picture without having Ruby look too overpowered by beating him 1v1.
No Pyrrha can't be dead, she still has to score with Jaune.
She'll never score if shes dead.
Penny's death was for the plan.
Roman didn't need to die.
Pyrrha had this coming.
>implying Ren and Ruby isn't end game
Her archilles' heel got shot, she's gone. She's going to be like Obi Wan now doing the ghost sage advice thing. The other 2 actually have a greater chance of coming back.
>Pile of posts of her gushing over Pyrrha art
>Posts critiquing Pyrrha's development
Unless you mean how she's breaking up the words and capitalizing when she gushes, because she literally always does that. https://xlthuathopec.tumblr.com/post/137030027761/
Here's a month ago.
I kind of like Xlth to be honest. She's way less of a shit about being passionate toward Pyrrha than, say, Octavian, and she also goes out of her way to tell people not to take credit for others art and posts sources all the time.
Does Coco need an intervention?
Not really, everything about Pyrrha and Penny's death has been foreshadowed and built up over the course of several seasons. It helps develop the characters and moves the plot along.
Roman didn't need to die, but he was always just a petty villain that they needed to get rid of before his schtick wore off.
So I've been thinking a bout Jaune being based on Joan of Arc, and how she died.
>After a climactic battle, Cinder is weakened,
>There's fire all around, which she caused.
>But she has means of escape.
>She heads towards it.
>Suddenly, Jaune grabs her. He won't let go.
>Cinder is trying to shake him off, but he holds on.
>The fire closes in.
>She's screaming bloody murder.
>Jaune just smiles and says "I'm coming, Pyrrha."
>Pans out from the fire. Eventually Cinder's screaming dies down and we see the Fall Maiden powers fly off.
And that's how while Joan of Arc dies on the pire, Jaune Arc dies for Pyrrha.
Do we have resident drawfags?
Because I still wanna see Ruby, Weiss and Yang dressed up as Luke, Leia and Han.
With a speech bubble coming from off screen from Blake saying "I AM NOT COMING OUT UNLESS YOU AT LEAST LET ME PUT A SWIMSUIT OR SOMETHING ON"
Except Ruby has never qualified as an idealist. Her whole motivation is that she wants to be a huntress. Not because she has a reason to fight, but just because she wants to fight.
Unrelated, thinking back of the previous episode, what happened to Pyrrha was forshadowed by Roman.
>I've always thought I was destined to become a huntress. To protect the world.
>You want to be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other huntsman in history.
So at the end of it all we have:
>Yang looking like a criminal
>Ruby witnessing Pennny's "death"
>Grim taking over Beacon
>Roman possibly dead
>The Fall Maiden's power stolen
>Ruby witnessing the deaths of 2 friends in one night (Mandatory Ruby PTSD episode for the next season)
>The fate of Cinder and by extension the Fall Maiden's powers unknown (If she died it could be in either Neo or Emerald for plan B or It just went to Ruby in which case add First War Kill Anxiety to the PTSD episode)
>Yang's spirit still broken months later
>Weiss taken home
>Blake gone for unknown reasons
>Other kingdoms in panic
>Salem moving on to the next phase
>Months of hiatus to go until Volume 4
So what's going to be lost in the next Villain Plan Snowball?
Jeebus well that does dovetail nicely with how they had Pyrrha's death planned out so far in advance. I'm still frankly amazed how they kept it under wraps for so long. I mean jeebus Sheena's cosplay group knew about it and not a single person leaked it. That's some impressive OPSEC right there.
Went looking and found something that might help with the whole character deaths or not.
>YFW you're not a Arkos shipper
Suffer shippers. Suffer. Where's your Goddess now?
I had a theory.
Cinder seemed to have everything always go according to plan because all her defeats before V3 were given over to Roman instead, since he wasn't in the original plans outside of the first chapter of volume 1.
That's why he always seems like a chump that always lost, because he was never written to have the small victories that Cinder achieved, whilst she looked too good because all her defeats were given to someone else.
>Only waifu I ever had dies
>On Valentines Day
So is it ever explained why Roman, Mercury, and Emerald are all so OP? Since I don't think it's implied any of them were ever Huntsman. I suppose you can excuse Mercury by claiming his dad drunkenly beat fighting techniques into him from a young age.
I'm going to make it my mission to help my waifu smile again. This is my pledge to my Valentine, Yang Xiao Long.
Post your RWBY Valentine!
And nobody is asking that he is around forever
We are only asking for a better send off, suddenly getting eaten alive is like your GM going "and now a rock drop and kills everyone".
There is no way in hell that Penny isn't coming back one way or another. There are way, way too many hanging plot threads left with her.
>Still don't know why she was made
>Still don't know how she was made
>Had a plan for staying at Beacon that we know nothing about
>Ciel hasn't done anything
>Dr. Light hasn't even been properly introduced yet
I am 100% convinced that she'll be back.
Yang doesn't (or at least didn't) have the personality for it. Also she's partners with Blake, so that fits for the Han/Chewwie pair.
And Ruby REALLY does not have the personality for Han, and she's the main character so she's gotta be Luke
Yang needs her smile back.
>Ruby: I love books. Yang used to read to me every night before bed. Stories of heroes and monsters... They're one of the reasons I want to be a Huntress!
>Blake: And why is that? Hoping you'll live happily ever after?
>Ruby: Well, I'm hoping we all will. As a girl, I wanted to be just like those heroes in the books... Someone who fought for what was right, and protected people who couldn't protect themselves!
>Blake: That's... very ambitious for a child. Unfortunately, the real world isn't the same as a fairy tale.
>Ruby: Well, that's why we're here! To make it better.
Well, Roman is like the result of all the rolls ending in him escaping or lucking out and the GM just got sick and tired of that bullshit and killed him off when he had the chance.
So, I made a card for today's occasion.
Oh, also, I know there are one or two anons waiting on shit I was supposed to deliver weeks ago. Sorry, y'all, I've been very busy thanks to university matters. Don't know when I'll be able to pick writing back up again.
But I'll lurk when I can.
> yfw Jaune kills Emerald for making an illusion of Pyrrha.
>Fire Lord Cinder
Oh I need this
>Cinder rips her top off and screams into the air with fire coming out of her mouth
the fact that she's a robot makes it so easy to bring her back
that's why I didn't care that much when she was ripped apart because I was thinking they could just put her back together, because she's a fucking robot
All the Maidens can control the elements.
And are fertility goddesses.
yfw everything is gonna go downhill for the characters from here
So anon's i just found out i was born on February 14th and today's my actual birthday! lets post some yang!
"Hey guys, we totally killed Pyrrha this time she is totally dead this episode, see she dead, we totally totally did it."
"Ha ha fooled you. She back."
I think at some point the maidens may have actually consolidated their powers. Possibly even with Salem herself killing and taking some of them.
When they realized Cinder had taken a portion of the power they didn't seem to do anything to secure the others, and you'd think that Ozpin would have at least one around to fight Cinder in the event that she got the full Maiden powerup.
>Turns out that the illusion lives on after Emerald's death
>Starts to hang out with Jaune and acts like its the good old days
>Real Pyrrha gets revived
>Illusion Pyrrha believes she is the real Pyrrha
The only way I want Yang to beat her depression is for her to
accidentally break Taiyang's leg and realize she's still got it.
So best soundtrack of the season is Divide right?
>i just found out i was born on February 14th
I fucking old are you?
Volume 3 was good, even great, and it raised the overall quality of the show from "fairly bad" to "mediocre" or possibly even "okay". If Volume 4 maintains this level of quality or keeps improving, then it'll be good.
It's more the fact that they bothered giving her any amount of screentime outside of the 2v2 fight, let alone lines and any semblance of a personality. She exists as a satellite character to Penny, and if Penny were dead for good then the time spent giving her an actual introduction of any kind would've been completely pointless.
Then again I suppose that could just be put down to M&K's weird writing.
Post YFW it turns out Pyrrha has a younger sister who looks and sounds almost identical, but was never as good a fighter, always in her sister's shadow, and
blames Ruby and Jaune for her sister's death and wants nothing to do with them
>Ruby literally just had to stay with Yang for 1 day to tell her that Merc was absolutely fine and actually kicked her ass during the Penny fight
>both of them are being downers and mulling over "muh feelings"
If the theory that Salem is one of the OG maidens is true, then I can see a flashback to her sisters turning against her and taking her powers, causing the powers to get mixed up a bit. Also notice how Cinder's power are exclusively fire: Part of Salem's plans could involve making the powers of the maidens pure again
>i just found out i was born on February 14th
How does one just find that out?
>Have dream involving 3 different events
>Winter, Adam, and Yang involved each in one
>2 seconds after going for something to write it down on I forget everything except some of the Winter segment
well 20 now, due to some clerical fuck up when my parents signed documents for my family to immigrate to the states they put my birthday to march instead of February and my parents decided not to tell me until today
>This sounds like one of my friends whose GM'ing a SW: Edge of the Empire campaign with another group of friends
>He purposely found a way to kill of one of the characters because they were a HK Droid and would force him to remember more than he'd want to remember, even though he has the damn books to help him remember
>Constantly has a bitch-fit to myself and main group of friends that we never let him RP our stuff
Any GM that doesn't have a bit of leniency towards their RP's are pretty shitty GM's honestly.
The Ciel name is cursed to no screentime.
The season finale was great but I personally prefer stuff like this in a midseason kinda like Gurren Lagan.
I am looking forward to seeing Yang out of her funk and JNRR meeting up with Pyrrha's parents.
I'm going to be playing Bloodborne, RWBY GE, Mortal Kombat X; masturbate, moving in the summer and finishing up my AA.
Writers never seem to be able to grasp just how vital communication between characters is.
>actually kicked her ass during the Penny fight
No she didn't, she was running from him the entire time.
I lost count of how many times a story could have ended better if the characters just talked.
You know what would have that scene perfect.
If all that was left of her was her shoe.
I also found out that the reason my mom always gave me a gift and made me my favorite food on valentines day wasn't because i was a loser but because i had been secretly celebrating my birthday on these days
Tell me about it, I'm really hoping that she's actually stuck like this and frozen along with the dragon. When she finally gets unfrozen it will be when the Beacon student body are back to reclaim their school
JUST SAW THE EPISODE HOLY SHIT THEY FINALLY DID IT
DID ANYONE CAP OCTAVIAN'S REACTION?
THAT FUCKER GOT BTFO SO HARD!
You're damn fucking straight i did.
So what do guy think what is better?
>Robot armed Yang with a built in shotgun
>One armed aputee Yang who fights with kicks and refuses to get a robot arm
I like the latter but I think the robot arm is more likely
I want to tell Yang i love her and be by her side as she falls asleep~!
so i can cut off her other arm
Which would be pretty dumb. there's a reason pretty much every living thing keeps its brain in its head instead of in its body.
Also where her heart would be is still intact and connected to her head too, even though they cut it close, so if it's there it's still intact too
Can't Penny just be rebuilt? She was never alive in the first place.
It does link to a catalog search on /trash/ though. It's an extra step to get to the thread, but at least then the OP doesn't have to check and see if there's a new one or anything.
>Jaune are you okay?
>I'M PERFECTLY FINE RUBY. PERFECTLY FINE.
>S-She's already dead Jaune. You can stop stabbing her.
>I'M MAKING SURE RUBY. I'M MAKING SURE.
>You cut her head off.
>AND I HAVEN'T EATEN HER HEART YET.
I go with option 3
>Goes out, hunts a grim, tears it's arm off, then just put it where her stump is and then the arm becomes part of her EVA Unit 01 style.
Why would she willingly choose to
>Not cannon arm that also turns into the ballistic fist from Fallout
I had a nightmare, /rwbyg/. Comfort me.
>was playing a rwby video game
>controlling Jaune but I wasn't Jaune himself (as in, I played multiple characters throughout the game)
>had some choices involving Weiss
>the only way to save her life was to go the route that would end up having them date
>mfw no matter what other choices I made in the game she would just die
>mfw I finally chose to have her live at the cost of the shitty relationship
>every now and then Ruby dresses as Pyrrah for Jaune
every now and then Jaune dresses as Yang for Ruby
Something like this would be nice
Since this is Valentines and all...
Do you think neo's boots taste more like tears or blood?
I haven't seen Octavian since the reveal thread.
>>Blake: That's... very ambitious for a child. Unfortunately, the real world isn't the same as a fairy tale.
>>Ruby: Well, that's why we're here! To make it better.
I'd call that realism rather than idealism. In season two, where Oobleck was questioning the rest and Weiss, Blake and Yang were questioning why they actually wanted to be one.
Ruby was the only one who seemed to have everything figured out.
If anything the Idealist is Blake. Wanting to be a huntsman because it was the noblest thing she knew. Fighting because there's too much wrong in the world.
It managed to pull a Madoka. A pretty balsy move, we'll see how it plays out.
>Eyes turn red
>Usually goes berserk during a fight
Yang is Seras Victoria
I'm not sure, but i'd love it either way.
I actually really like how meaningful her death is and how built up it was throughout the series. Suddenly all the side stories and different character arcs have new meaning and everything connects back to Ruby.
Pyrrha's death made me appreciate this show for the first time and I'm pretty stoked for the new season. Now we have a natural team of members fighting for legitimate causes instead of just a bunch of schoolgirls assigned together to take tests.
I'm assuming it's like Yang's hair glow - getting stronger the more he gets hit. The red glows stronger as Blake shoots his sword.
I guess rather than PUNCH HARDER his thing could be a sharper
edgethat lets him cut better
Jen Taylor's been doing a lot of villain turns recently.
God Halo 5 was bad.
Stop I can only get so erect
Bullet from Blazblue
Don't you dare compare that bimbo to best girl ever of all time.
This case is really clearly not a fridge moment. She's had plenty of characterization beyond her death being a motivating factor, and even then it's not because WiR is about killing a woman to prompt action from a man. This prompts an ensemble, including Nora and Ruby.
I kept hearing Ruby say "Jaune, why?" all night in my head.
It was such a tiny moment from the livestream but it's stuck in my head.
I want Yang to be so depressed about Blake and losing her arm that she hangs herself in her bedroom as Taiyang comes in!
He did what is necessary when a RWBY waifu dies, and climbed onto the ceremonial funeral pyre, as all Pennyfags have already done and Pyrrhafags must do at their next available opportunity. Failure to comply is a quads-contradicting level felony.
>Salem watches Jaune throughout his journey growing ever more obsessed with him
>Sends copies of herself to seduce and temp him to her side
>No matter what she tries it never seems to work
>His love for Pyrrha never wavers but there is something else
>Some force is protecting him that isnt his semblance, aura, or any kind of magic
>One night as she sends her copy out to try to woo Jaune once more, she loses contact with it
>Jaune wakes up and Pyrrha is alive and well having taken over the Salem copy and changed it to her will.
In a technical sense Salem gets with Jaune
I laughed way harder than I should have... thanks anon.
Nobody asked for this but I made it anyway. Happy Valetines Day /rwby/
itsl ike the kommandos and /o/tists left
wer u at familia
You'll never appriciate something until it's gone
M Ruby > S Ruby
She had an Aura, and therefore a soul. Which I'm pretty sure qualifies you as alive in Remnant.
I just got here but you really need me to explain how a rocket fist works with her fighting style? She uses gauntlets that fire shotgun shells. Rocket-propelled punch is basically the evolution of that attack.
>they have to go through all that AI memory reclaiming process like with buzz in toy story
Implying people are grasping at neo's boots while on there knees their tears falling on neo's boots as they beg for their lives
Where is this fan art?
>Still has both arms on the picture
We can fix that
>Easiest way to || Kill Miles Luna
>Have a boot fetish
>Yang is my waifu
>Want Yang to lose her boot to her stocking foot
>She loses an arm instead
We'll see then, though Pyrrha and Jaune were very developed involving each other it's honestly hard to see them pair with anyone else in canon.
Ruby just remain close friends with Jaune.
Not at all.
It's a singular attack that involves the hand leaving the body. Considering Yang's style is winging right and left hands like a loon it wouldn't be a natural evolution.
What about when things go Sayaka? Is that when everything is incredibly depressing?
im still how mad we never got a qt loli gothic lolita but instead it was a throwaway disguise
yes i mad
I love how this can be read either as ash Phyrra flying through the air, or Blake running away. A true double-whammy.
I imagine her more like this
>Winter and I take down an Alpha Beowolf
>Has to do something with making a password on a computer
>joke about it being beoslayer
>because "you know what you're expecting when you do it"
>mfw waking up
I really wish I could remember the whole thing
I still can't get over Pyrrha's last words to Jaune being "I'm Sorry"
THAT'S MEANT TO BE A HAPPY GIMMICK
I would give anything to have my Roman back.
His possible death effected me way more than Penny's and Ash's.
Didn't happen in the first place
He doesn't punch harder, he just cuts sharper.
I'm assuming that's how he was able to literally slice through Yang's Aura and arm. Because Blake had been pointlessly shooting and hitting him.
They keep changing Cortana'ss appearance, especially concerning her face. Jesus Christ, stick to one look. No one would have even knew it was Cor if wasn't for the fact that she was blue and voiced by Taylor.
Either the "network of crows" theory, which could explain how he can be literally anywhere the plot demands, or it was just a hint to his actual semblance.
I seriously doubt they'd point out that Schnee's hereditary semblances are unique then give another family a semblance that's 99% the same, who's on a team with a another hereditary power. That's too fucking retarded, even for M&K.
could be high but magic-eyes-who-freezes-grim is a shitty asspull and terrible climax , the epilogo was neat tho
was the most enjoyable of all
a lot of plot twist (by RT standars) and lore
I still hate how they killed best boy and best robogirl but I respect they keep all as monty planned
> looking forward for..
_N_R finally do somtine , no more animu school gimmick ,
finale they go to expore the world and fight against grimms and jaune can evolve as character without mom waifu.
>during the hiatus
i will fill my cup with arkos shipper tears
What's she taking a picture of now?
Might have something to do with the fact that the Branwens are twins or something. Since Yang certainly doesn't have it. Unless she really does have some duality related semblance like that one Anon was theorizing last night.
Hey don't you drag glorious overlord Kubo into this
Well we didn't have moments LIKE that either.
What if Neo has a fight with all 4 main girls 1 per volume before we see her go all out?
if theories are true that her eyes are silver she like ruby discovers her hidden power
>Weiss, what are you doing with my pork buns?
