/trash/: when you hit rock bottom, it's only up from there
It's time to upset the Bun
Finally pic related will become canon
>Post your theories for everyone who wasn't here constantly for the past 36.5 hours.
Do we have a full body shot of Salem?
It's gonna be like Naruto where they introduce a new and more powerful villain every time the MCs get close to beating the current one
My faith is strong. My resolve is infinite. My penis is erect.
He will make a glorious return.
I found some concept art of Jaune finding Pyrrha after Cinder defeated her
>the one I want the most is the one sold out for how long
Is it bad that I want it to turn out that Salem became evil because humanity hunted her down as a witch, for Jaune to be condemned as a witch (men were burnt as witches too irl) in much the same way his real life counterpart was, and for this to make Salem try to turn him over to her side?
What would be Weiss' reaction to the two suddenly being so close?
Never, he will always live on in my heart.
Stay strong, we'll make it through this.
I redid the Beaconship poll
I think SSSN is my favorite team overall
So, finally got around to properly watching the finale, rather than just relying on spoilers. Couple thoughts.
First, definitely thinking that there's something up with Pyrrha's death. Just the dramatic nature of it, the mystical appearance, and the exchange she had with Cinder right before the "Killing Blow"...something's gotta come of that.
Also more certain than ever that Ruby's a Maiden.
Also I want to Cinder to make a grand return as a Half-Dragon Grimm Maiden. Cause that'd be awesome.
White Rose Knight.
>I think SSSN is my favorite team overall
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG I'VE WANTED TO FIND THIS!
Since everyone is expecting Neo to blame Ruby for Roman's passing, it would actually make for a neat twist if she came to blame the ones who roped him into Salem's machinations instead
My bet is she eventual leads to the Reveal that Ozpin isn't actually the wizard but his human form, having given all his power to humans in the form of aura and semblances.
He will be forced to take back his magic from humanity and become Oz the great and powerful to fight her one on one.
They off each other and Oz returns the aura' and semblances along with the maiden powers returning to Ozpin to die as a human which he loved so much.
Salem dies and her queen Grim powers are split between the Black/dread/dark knights or some such edgy name and team Maiden Rwby fights and evil group of super powerful humaniod grim beasts for a few seasons.
Somebody in the last thread suggested that Ironwood might take Yang on as an apprentice. Aside from the obvious reasons why, I was thinking that might make sense also because the scene in the dorms when he was breaking the news about her disqualification seemed to foreshadow they might have that kind of chemistry. Plus, his only would-be student Penny is now gone.
If the theory that Pyrrha was transported to Salem's realm in some capacity turn out to be true, she could use the fact that she can reunite Pyrrha and Jaune in order to persuade him.
>Just saw the new episode
>Burnie as Taiyang
>The broken Fellowship
>Cortana is the main villain
Yo guys check out this Pyrrha cosplay
So do I, I accept hes dead yeah, I accept hes not coming back, but it still sucks
I'm disappointed to see Ironwood and Ozpin that low, but let's be friends.
Tell me this, Pyrrha fans. If Pyrrha is so great, why did she die like a slave?
Does anyone have that picture of Jaune kissing the ashes? I want to piss my friends off
I just thought of the best name of the new team.
Lie, Nora, Arc, Ruby:
Team LNAR (Lancaster)
It was interesting that no mention of her fate was made. One could presume she was carried off by her associates, but the fact remains that we don't know exactly what happened to her. I bet M&K play off this to some extent.
Pyrrha is gonna come back.
>Qrow and Summer were in love
>Summer gets pregnant
>Ozpin calls on Qrow for a mission
>Qrow has to leave for 2 years
>Tai and Summer fall in love and get married
>Qrow comes back and finds out
>Qrow blames himself
>Tai blames him too
Make my dreams real, RT.
Lancaster but only after a good long (not too long) development. Because now's the time for suffering and PTSD not fluffy romance
Imagine two lesbians getting it on, now imagine a guy getting in there
against their will.
Dark times, dark times.
I definitely think she's been frozen in place, yet alive, like the dragon.
I want them to both revive by fusing their essences together, creating a Grimm Dragon Maiden. Because it'd be both incredibly sexy and awesome.
Alright, I just watched the last few episodes after not watching for a few weeks and it's really made me want to write for some reason.
Would you guys be interested in a story about a
one-armedswordsman who talks to Yang a few days after everything goes to shit?
Did anyone else find it weird how suddenly Yang was the most powerful team RWBY member, when she got her ass handed to her by Neo? If anything, I thought Blake was going to be the one facing off in the one on ones. The show has this weird dynamic, where sometimes the characters are useless or OP. Ruby is fucking shit for all school related combat, but is amazing when "the bad guys" show up. Yang has only had her shit pushed in by Neo. Weiss does outstandingly well for school shit, and mediocre for any other combat. Blake had done well until the festival.
As an aside, was Pyrrha the most powerful student in the series? Could anyone else have lasted that much against full-maiden-mode Cinder?
we've always been here anon, now that Arkos is in the wind, no pun intended, we're just more confident in our ship more then ever
They're not going back to school, are they? No more bullying, no more dancing, no more field trips. It's almost like Cinder forced them to graduate early. Are M&K master rusers or what? I still remember when we were all saying that the status quo God would still be around for V3 and he got thrown the fuck out in ep.6. Man, RWBY sure wen from a 5/10 to a solid 8 really quick. Is there anything that could possibly go wrong now?
Found the angry lesbian forced to have sex with a man
Post your face when Summer finally appears
>It's literally just a Ruby in a reskined hood and cape
I want Salem to be Ozpin's old teamate back when he was a huntsman. They were supposed make a great team but they differed in ideals: Salem would have a black-and-white view of the world. Eventually Ozpin would betray her when she snaps. Salem gets mad at Ozpin and at humanity for not realizing that they are as evil as the Grimm.
>"Bitch, at least the overwhelming majority of your friends surived the attack and the woman you love wasn't raped to insanity right in front of your face. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
Seriously, first time I saw that, and I was on RWBYg and you were all complaining about a time skip, I literally yelled "What the christ, how long was she out?!"
It's less autistic than it sounds since I live alone and feel no need to speak quietly.
There are too many good girls in RWBY for the number of doujins being so low. Who will right this travesty?
I gotta admit, that puts a dent in the whole "battle school setting" trope they were using. Not that there aren't at least two others (Atlas and Haven, not sure about Vacuo). It's a nice change, just came about in a crazy freaking way.
Because she fought someone much stronger and smarter than her, and ended you getting shot in both her heel an heart.
In all honesty, she was an idiot for not running
I THANK YOU ONCE MORE PAL
I by the near end of the show I expect him to pull off an Undyne Memetale.
An still somehow screws everything up.
They proceed to write future arcs just as badly as the school arc.
There were plenty of cool things they could have done using the setting but never did, I don't expect a change of setting to solve that.
Well, it makes sense when you think about it.
Yang and Ruby were both brought up by professional, very skilled huntsmen. They've been trained since a young age to fight for real. Blake as well was previously an initiate in the White Fang. She's used to fighting for her life. Weiss, meanwhile, only has experience in controlled environments such as a school.
>YFW Yang takes up Hitomi's fighting stance as a tribute to monty
That is funny you are right anon
At least not for most of Volume 4. I can see the finale for next season being a battle to reclaim Beacon and the communications tower, so volume 5 might return to the school, but it will be like volume 3 where they aren't going to classes and instead are focused on something else. In volume 3 it was the tournament, in volume 5 it will be the counterattack against Salem's forces.
>Listening to Co-Optional Podcast
>TotalBiscuit is discussing GameTrailers shutting down
>Talks about how comapnies that put out tons of videos a day that employ lots of people will eventually face diminishing returns because not everybody watches everything
>Internet Box Podcast Episode from a few weeks back has Barbara talking about how every Monday Meeting it seems like they're getting yet another one or two new employees, are shopping around for a new studio already
Rooster Teeth seems like they're doing fine financially right now but there will likely be a time where they get far too bloated in terms of employees and content. What do you think'll happen then?
Yang is good against people who aren't all that trained for fighting humans.
I mean her semblance is based on taking and giving hits and most of the people she's fought have been based on giving hits that are supposed to be given to two ton grimm.
If the blows land, she gets powered up. If they don't she lands her own.
Anyone who's willing to move away from her and come in bursts is going to win as apparently her cardio is shit and god help her if she fights someone who can crank and break bones.
But seriously, I wonder how this incident will change the school system in future volumes. Maybe now all students need to take background checks and are monitored 24/7.
>going back to Beacon
Fuck that noise, M&K are idiots if they don't exploit Remnant for some wacky KH-esque misadventures. I think boxing them back into the school would be a worst case scenario.
>anime school gimmick finally died
>the real show begins adventures over the world and fighting grimm
Alright Pyrrha lovers, Pyrrha is now a literal pile of ash/dust/whatever
But the question is, if you really love her, would you love her no matter what she was
Even as a pile of ash, or would you abandon her to her "destiny"
My bet is Ironwood. He knows Yang was affected by Emerald's semblance now and will check in to get some info. After some talk he'll make the offer for er to join him. One robot arm later and we get Yang deciding between his regimented worldview and her own previous free-spirited attitude.
Good character growth and a fun robo arm. Plus he's the man who can get her back into the plot quickly via airship.
So are we all in agreement that Pyrrha was a moron who threw her life away because
And as a result deserved what she got.
Alright /RWBYg/ your waifu is in danger and you're strong enough to go save her! Whats your theme song and semblance?
>Ruby and Jaune finally reunite with Weiss
>She's completely shocked at how close they've gotten
>As they talk they start getting into some socially awkward moments and fuck up Weiss's Dust experiment
>"W-W-Weiss we can explain" Ruby smiles
>"We-we walked so many miles" Jaune says "that we-"
>They expect Weiss to go off a rant, instead she starts laughing
>"You two said you weren't in a relationship right?"
>"N-no!" Jaune blushed
>"We're...like Nora and Ren..." Ruby said
>"Oh...well that's a shame" Weiss says "because...you two are adorable together"
>Their faces both turn completely red
Will Weiss be able to use Dust on her summon like she does with Myrtenaster?
Post yfw Jaune's semblance is pretty much Second Chance + Once More.
You with all the theories and such flying around you know the one thing I look forward to seeing?
I look forward to seeing what would happen if some of these theories are correct.
I want to see Arkos fans cry if Pyrrha is 100% dead.
I want to see Lancasters shit the bed if Ruby turns out to be lesbian.
I want to see Neo fans suffer if it turns out she dies on impact of the ground.
Any an all possibilities that occur I want to see the uproar of the angry and the broken.
No matter what happens at the end of the day there is one universal constant.
I will enjoy this to the very last frame.
Rube will undoubtedly do the same thing now that she knows she's special.
Don't worry anon, we can set up a v4 party!
It'll be like some Star Wars shit, Jaune will be the one to off Cinder in order to avenge Pyrrha and that will make Salem interested in recruiting him to her cause, likely by brainwashing
It's pretty bad when worst Kiseki has a better school arc than your story. though worst Kiseki than half of the LNs that take place at a school.
YES FEED YOUR TEARS OF DENIAL TO THE RUBE AND WATCH AS SHE DESTROYS ALL YOU LOVE!
Journal of a shipper.
It's happened. I just heard from the captain but it got sunk. The Arkos got sunk.
The captain told me told me the news with a crazed look in his eyes, like he was still dreaming.
The Arkos was the largest ship out there. Supported by not just a crew many times larger than our own, but also by what seemed like the Gods themselves. It was pushed so much; the front of the rest. An invincible armada.
The Lancaster was a simple ship. Compared to the almost full seasonal blessings the Arkos got, us here made due with the one or two throwaways the Gods would spare us. Too little material to combat the Arkos, Too small a crew to handle the White Rose, what could be said to be Arkos' equal.
Aye but tis a good ship it is. It's simpleness has it's charm. I was satisfied with taking it at a slow pace to till now.
The captain talks of a huge headwind coming and that we should ride it to the end. It's a good opportunity for the ship to gain some ground.
However, that path will only lead us to duking it out with the White Rose.
Those shippers don't feel anything. They don't hear anything or speak anything but their own gospel.
Tis a fight I don't intend on joining.
There's also been talk of the White Knight setting sail again. The very same one the Gods shot down. The first ship to fall os back again.
There be a storm a brewin. And it leaves me very very weary.
She should never have went to fight Cinder, considering she even styled on Ozpin. Pyrrha got some good hits in, but wasn't even close to beating her. She left Jaune all alone because reasons
RWBY game by Square Enix when?
Qrow is a cool guy but having some secret family conspiracy makes no sense, it would be retarded.
Qrow obviously was in love with Summer but got cucked.
Ruby doesn't bring her A-game all the time; compare her fight with Merc where she's panicked to the food fight where she isn't.
Weiss has always been the most book-smart of the whole team; she's very well-educated but somewhat lacking in practical experience.
Blake has lived her life on the fringes and as such has effectively been training her entire life, but always victory was secondary to survival so her instinct is always to evade instead of trade blows.
Yang has always been the powerhouse of the team; her entire shtick is overcoming the opponent with brute force. She lost to Neo because Neo has the perfect counter to Yang's "strategy" of just punching everything.
I will always be with her.
I will plant her roots in me.
I wont see her end in ashes.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
>Weiss at #1
You sir, have excellent taste.
Your not making it any easier for your self.
Your still in denial.
I have the whole set, but the file is too large; the price I pay for reverse searching quality sized images. Here's a link if you want it
Counter Fighters avoid attacks and counter using the window they're given, which would be counterintuitive to a semblance that functions on damage.
Avoiding damage is certainly a good thing to do in general, but in Jaune's case it has de-synergy with his semblance and strong attribute (high HP).
>and then the episode went to credits
>He keeps a dagger made from the remains of Pyrrha's sword for memoir/last ditch effort
I really want Jaune to carry something of Pyrrha's with him, her shield, her headdress, whatever
Off by one on both accounts. How disappointing...
So this is how Blakefags feel like.
man, I'm gonna miss Pyrrha
mainly because she had the best design in the whole cast of characters
Well that highly depends on the kind of counter fighter you're talking about here.
What you're describing sounds like the attack that comes after another instead of ones that steps in to meet an attack, which Jaune would excel at considering he has a shield.
>Jaune's goofy guitar playing
Those were happier times
I mean what would you, and all others who believe she will come back, do if she doesn't.
By extension what would you make those who say she is dead and turns out she comes back do?
I thought every song for V3 was fantastic.
I was rather disappointed with a lot of the fight choreography, but the soundtrack was great. Can't fucking wait for it to get released.
>MFW i want Yang to lose her other arm to further her parallel with Merc
>We all think Jaune will die Joan of Arc style
>Cinder has him at the Stake asking him if he has any last words
>There's a brief pause as he starts laughing
>"The next thing you're going to say is ""foolish boy, this is your destiny""
>"Foolish boy, this is your destiny.....!"
>Crescent Rose flies through the screen and cuts Jaune's ropes
Ponytails were Oum's-Given gift to the world.
And I'm not talking about those fucking side pony tails.
Didn't Blake's VA run off exactly like Blake?
Oh man. Now I want Volume 4 kicking off with Jaune, Ruby and Nora singing car trip songs with Jaune playing his guitar and Ren about to shoot himself.
Speaking of which. Ren is now with the three comic relief characters. This can only end well.
Things you predict/want for the future of RWBY?
I'll post some of my thoughts from last thread
>Ruby hones her silver eyes
>Yang gets a tricked out robo arm and learns self control
>Yang also gets mentored by Ironwood and puts her at peace with having a major defeat and the loss of a limb
>Weiss can now summon avatars of her foes and hopefully goes to hunt down a powerful Grimm to add to her armory
>Blake has nothing as far as I know. Maybe revamping her weapon?
>Jaune is going to train his dick off and likely unlock the full potential of his semblance for Pyrrha
>Winter hits it off with Qrow, since they clearly want to hatefuck each other
>Possible heel turn by Emerald
Side note: I love all of their casual outfits
You should. And then read it, because Steel Ball Run is perfection.
Journal of a Shipper
Last night, we passed the remains of the good ship Arkos. We tried our best to rescue a few. Some came immediately, others bregruingly.
However, some stayed.
They wanted to stay in their ship as it sunk down into the murky waters. They muttered on about how she wasn't dead. How she would return. How it's all a ruse.
And as much as I wanted to call it madness, I couldn't help but admire their resolve, if not delusion.
The captain didn't seem to mind either so we let them go on.
I could only watch on as the ship sunk down, eerily glowing.
Can someone answer this?
I'm still trying to recover from what happened.
Anyone else still feel dead inside? Pyrrha....why?!
>His semblance is literally 'survival'
>He wouldn't die even if you killed him
>He shows up in the epilogue of Season 4 alongside Neo on the beach sipping pina coladas with zero explanation
Nah, senpai. I got plenty of other waifus to live for.
I really do think she might come back because of that weird gold shit.
>>Blake has nothing as far as I know. Maybe revamping her weapon?
>Blake's clones originally just acted like a brief after image
>Later she displayed the skill of altering their properties using Dust
>Later still, her abilities were shown to have further evolved, letting her slip away unnoticed after leaving a clone behind to cover her escape
>In her time alone, she continues to hone her Semblance
>By the time RWBY reunites, she can create a team of clones to assist her in combat
>Post YFW Blake is Naruto
They wouldn't exist if she hadn't died but thanks I'm the one who made them and I'll continue to make more to morn and honor our fallen hero.
If I had a penny for every time RWBY game me feels.
She was one of my favorites too.
> They muttered on about how she wasn't dead. How she would return. How it's all a ruse.
The real crew would never say that.
The real crew knows why we stay
Part of the crew, Part of the ship
Part of the crew, Part of the ship
>Yang gets her arm cut off and Blake runs away
>Gets all angsty
>Ruby saw Pyrrha die in front of her
>Jaune lost his almost GF
>Both of them still have the resolve to move forward
Why is Yang so shit?
The finale disappointed me a little honestly. Not Breach disappointing but disappointing
>Crocea Mors upgrade is the ability to turn into a massive two hander sword and a mercy giver.
>Starts ganking people by knocking them off their feet when they try something flashy and following them to the ground with stabs.
>Starts cleaving people down by stepping in on attacks and swinging.
>What you're describing sounds like the attack that comes after another instead of ones that steps in to meet an attack
What you think it sounds like is wrong. A counter hitter is perfectly well defined and you can search it if you need to. It's also a moot point because in both cases it still has no synergy whatsoever with Jaune's strengths (beyond possessing a shield, which has nothing to do with his semblance or aura).
They don't, they only serve in schools so Huntsman and Huntresses can learn trust and teamwork.
It is fun I agree, but I doubt any of the characters will care about it. They have an actual quest to go on, I would love it as a joke if Nora brought up what they should be called and they all start to argue between JRRN RRNJ or RNJR as it all ends with them dropping it.
Getting your arm cut off is pretty fucking big, then getting abandoned by your potential love interest for unknown reasons just makes it worse. Plus pyrrha was also a friend ontop of it. She essentially went through everything they did and more.
