Jump's lineup becomes even worse. What good series has even started on the magazine in the last say 2 years? With Naruto and Bleach(that was already dead) ending they have lost 2 very big pillars. Thank god they have One Piece.
Who fucking cares? The people that were spamming those threads were acting just as cancerous as the supposed /co/ influx would in the hypothetical scenario that it actually existed.
>has to go to japan to shill their series because the west isn't buying it
It has a fucking huge fanbase in the west though.
I only know this because I did leave this site for a time and found on my travels that RWBY was extremely popular
That's probably why it's happening.
No one cares. Go back to /co/ or wherever people circle jerk over this crap.
It's too late. It's already infiltrated Anime vidya gaems
This has been running for awhile. I'm guessing this means they're finally getting around to translating the chapters (that are already out!) because the fourth chapter is starting up soon.
This is only coming to the English Jump, not Weekly Shonen Jump.
Would be great since the official game turned into a huge disappointment and is nothing but smashing the same button, with rnaged skill being useless as hell, aswell as the leveling system.
ITT: People who don't realize this thing has already been running for nearly a year.
I honestly believe there should be a board for both /a/ and /co/ together, though /a/'s culture doesn't mix well with any other board.
I want to fuck Weiss's icy pussy
with my dick.
You say that like kanji defines what is shounen.
RWBY is far more popular with adult men in Japan, so it's in a magazine for adult men. It's not anything but seinen by any stretch of the imagination.
>Ruby was redesigned to an outfit which included prominently displayed cleavage
I love how parts of the tumblr fanbase flew into a rage over that. Like the fact that he first outfit had a corset was perfectly fine, but acknowledge the fact she has breasts and suddenly that crossed the line.
> because my faggot redditor roommate wouldn't shut the fuck up about it. It's like somebody went to tvtropes, randomly chose 50 articles and put them all into a crappy CG series aimed at the kind of mouthbreathing retards who follow e-celebrities.
I think you're projecting a bit too much there anon. You could have just said, "I watched it and it was really unoriginal". Would have been better than that embarrassment of a post.
If you actually watch Rooster Teeth, you do not belong on this site.
More like people got really upset at the "is this an anime" discussions. Personally I thought it wasn't, but I thought discussing it was fine, but threads were pretty cancerous to say the least.
Got official /a/ approval mod wise once the manga was a thing, and this is only cementing it I guess.
But the hating anything western made was also a factor. And also faggots like this >>148436997
>checks Pixev out of curiosity
>types in RWBY
That's a lot more than I was expecting, I mean it isn't a huge amount and most of it is likely shit. But better than more than a few anime series I know.
It's your most shounen jump series that's not in shounen jump. It's pretty much average across the board, so it's somewhat enjoyable if you like that kind of stuff. The fanbase, on the other hand, pure and utter cancer.
If you are looking for lewd RWBY check out this guy.
Otherwise this artist >>148433322
Does a lot of non lewd cute RWBY art
>non-H yuri fluff
What a fucking waste. The only one we have right now (at least last I checked) was a futa one, and I'm not into that.
Then there's that weird one (I think done by a western artist?) where Ruby randomly fucks Naruto. And Yang is involved a bit.
The show is shit
The fanbase is shit
The threads are shit
Neo is a qt though
Baked Alaska is the only way to go my senpai
Armless failures don't deserve icecream.
>RWBY allowed on /a/ if people are discussing the manga
>everyone ITT is talking about the show
So I take it mods have completely given up on this now? Western media discussion is allowed on /a/?
>has a manga
>is getting released in WSJ
>has an officially distributed Japanese release
>has an official Japanese dub with top tier VAs
Don't see any reason why it isn't allowed to be discussed on /a/ anymore.
This is a good chance to ask if Shirow's other manga Dogs is still good. I remember liking it but I thought it was getting kinda dumb. Also is Shirow on break from it to make the RWBY manga?
Japan seems to like it.
I can't stand the actual show, but given the right creator I think it could be decent. Manga might be neat. Character designs are... sometimes good, sometimes bad.
I think that's the case, I recall the last chapter released for dogs saying something about the hiatus for that series. And this got released shortly afterwards.
Doujins will probably see a boost, now that 2 and 3 are getting released in Japan. So I guess there's that to look forward to.
What will probably happen is these threads are going to get nothing but shitposted when they actually try to discuss the manga. This thread seems to be getting a pass as most seem to not be aware of it but if they try and dump chapters here like last time these threads won't last.
Don't forget what happened when the topic of Pyrrha's theme got brought up, and people started doing a basic Wikipedia search (because I guess no one taught these things at school for them).
>Is Jaune going to be burned to death?
>Is Nora going to get killed by a snake?
Seriously, I knew this fanbase was kind of dumb, but I had no idea it was to that extent until that moment.
Yeah. I mean he wouldn't know he was one if you just called him a shipperfag but when she died he was like "Their kids were gonna be gorgeous!". Feel bad for him. It's not everyday one of your otp's get's crushed that hard.
The only good thing out of this show was Roman and Neo
>holy shit that meltdown was fun to watch
See this is the curse of only watching these things in one giant sitting. I have to stay away from all these threads and info about it as to not spoil shit for me and see more of this show than I need to. Which also means I miss out on the great meltdowns by fans and I love watching shipperfags have meltdowns.
Thought it was they both wanted the cat, but he was allergic and risked the whole procedure, then someone screwed that up giving him the wrong ejection, thus hospitalizing him and eventually killing him.
Will the manga end up getting the dreaded Jaune arc?
It looks like they're pushing the fact that Jaune likes Weiss a lot more than the show.
It's sad to contemplate, but the show has improved in every way except fight choreography following Monty's passing. Better animation, better story freeing itself from the shackles of cliche, the works.
Yeah Monty was really holding back the series in everything but choreography, the entire reason the Jaune arc happened was because Monty wanted a dance scene, so Miles had to write a reason for that to happen.
What Studio do you think would be good for a RWBY anime? I'm thinking Ufotable, but that's only because I thought RWBY's backgrounds were pretty shit, and Ufotable can do some amazing ones.
Monty was definitely original with his creations. I mean just look at this for reference.
Inb4 it does not matter I like the show.
I don't think anyone praised him for that, the only one I can think of that actually got praise was Ruby, and possibly Weiss.
Everything else was kind of run of the mill design wise.
What he was praised for was his fight choreography, even when limited with shit like Poser (which was a self-inflicted hell), he could makes some amazing fights. So he was considered a genius in that regard, also by the fact that he was a major workaholic who barely slept apparently.
>the creators hate that ship
>their most dedicated fanartist (and the one of the ones who draws shit for the JPN release) is a major WhiteRose fag
I've never seen a case of preferred couples clashing so much with the actual creators before.
Is this going to be a Harry/Luna situation all over again? It would be hilarious to see the Tumblr rage if that is the case
>wait that screams she's going to show up later.
I don't mean that in a "she fell off a building and we don't know if she's actually dead" type of way. I mean it in a "she got shot in the heart, and burned to ashes from the inside out" way.
>named after Pyrrhic victory
>based on Achilles
>has barely any development
>love interest of the guy who gets the most development
>is a red head
>most naturally skilled of the cast
Really, the fact that people didn't think she would die surprised the hell out of me.
Anyone think Jaune Snow is the best and only true ship?
That's a weird way to spell Lancaster.
Damage control, make sure that the character meant to be killed off has the least opportunity for growth possible. So they made her the smartest, strongest, and least flawed in order to make her death feel like a major blow to the audience while at the same time being perfectly expendable.
It's writing 101 honestly, you really want to avoid fan backlash at wasting a character who had room to grow. Tends to be the reason why you see mentor figures die so often in anime.
The one ship I really don't understand was Ruby and Blake. Like seriously, they barely interact with one another. The most they spoke to each other was when they first met.
>starts to like him because he didn't recognize her, and brushed her off
>is frustrated with liking him because he never notices her, and brushes her off
To be honest that ship was weird as fuck because of this.
>oh wow this normal is treating me like a normal person
>oh wow i think im finding him romantically attractive
>oh wow he's dumb as a rock and can't notice i want to ride him
>oh wow im fucking dead and all i got out of him was a goodbye kiss
I remember watching Monty's earlier stuff years ago. Fuck.
At least post a pic of her you waste of dubs.
There was one early episode where it just screamed
>JAUNE ARC I WANT TO BE IN A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU
And he just goes
>thanks for being such a great friend pyrahh
I would've been fine if just he acknowledged her feelings for him and just said,"sorry, i dont feel the same for you." But i don't actually remember him EVER noticing she had a thing for him.
I thought that was supposed to happen 1 year ago like you maggots tried to let everyone know when the manga started getting published. I'm still waiting for the /co/ invasion. Where is it?
But it has a manga. By Japanese authors, made for a Japanese magazine. I don't even give a shit about it, I just want to know why you're ignoring that point entirely whenever it suits your needs.
As someone who works at a hospital, I'm almost certain this didn't all happen while he was at the hospital.
If it is, then it's his fault for going to a hospital that was so shit tier.
RWBY generals belong on /trash/ and should stay there,
I like to pretend that the human detritus that inhabits /co/ is above this wank. Too afraid to ever visit that board to find out, though.
it also in a way can further add to the ever civil "ITS NOT AN ANIMU" debate thanks largely in part to OtaKing
also Jesus Christ the nips went crazy in the comments on the version uploaded to niconico
So does touhou. In fact it has 6 manga series. And like 4 or 5 different anime 2 of them with top tier VAs too. But it's still not discussed or allowed here. And it's not even westernshit like this. So why should this shitty manga from a garbage american cartoon be discussed here when /co/ exists?
>But it has a manga. By Japanese authors, made for a Japanese magazine.
Yeah do you stupid retard know what else has manga by japanese authors for japanese magazines?
and Dragon quest
also Final fantasy
And pretty much any japanese videogame you can think of. All shit that gets disscussed on /vg/ and /jp/ as it should. Or do you want star wars threads here too?
>whenever it suits your needs.
In case you don't know Hetalia Axis Powers which has like 4 anime seasons gets its entire discussion on /cm/ simply because it's fujoshit.
No remember to fuck off back to /co/. Having a manga doesn't make you special.
I was just going to say this art looks like Dogs. I liked it a lot at first, but they started pushing the Samurai girl with MC too hard and made a shota LI for his loli waifu, so that killed my interest a bit.
No all the 2hu manga are posted and discussed on /jp/. And touhou threads are deleted here unless they are almost entirely about something else. What is posted here in the end is mostly memes, reaction pics and doujins.
What's the difference? Weren't you guys a tumblr colony some time ago? Or still are? And you spawned /mlp/, so there's probably not much difference in the population with /trash/. It's probably disney's fault.
Anyway no, /co/ and /trash/ for whatever the fuck you want it's not our problem, /a/ for go back to your board retard
>So /a/ for the manga
No it can go to /trash/ as well
>Here's the series synopsis: Once, humans and beasts coexisted peacefully in the magical world of Remnant. Now they are at fierce odds.
>Beasts does not refer to the Grimm
I BET SDC WROTE THIS SYNOPSIS
How is this anime when it's made by an American?
>RWBY (pronounced "ruby") is an American 3D web series(source; Wikipedia)
>Monyreak "Monty" Oum (/oʊm/; June 22, 1981 – February 1, 2015) was an American web-based animator and writer.(source: Wikipedia)
Americans cannot anime, anons. Their culture is dull and filled with dindus, just loot at the comic industry now. Best example is the recent Teen Titan cartoons or the new Powerpuff Girl.
Real anime is Asian-made because Japan is in Asia. Our cultures are rich and vibrant with the colors of life. This makes our stories better suited for anime, manga and games.
>Our cultures are rich and vibrant with the colors of life.
>This makes our stories better suited for anime, manga and games.
You really must be confused right now. I pity you.
I love when people get salty about westerners producing anime. It sustains me.
What, nobody told you? RWBY is old and busted. The current invasion is chink funded anime. There's like what, at least 2 this season alone. Crying about RWBY is just so insignificant in comparison.
Yeah but the fact that mods don't delete it means it's allowed to stay.
You can say "well the mods are wrong" but is that even a valid argument. In 4chan Hiro is god and can decide what's allowed on any board at any time. Mods are people who were entrusted by the Super mods to do their job. You could say they do a bad job but if the Smods and Hiro don't agree you can't say well it's against X. God is allowed to change the rules and definitions whenever.
RIP /a/ im sorry for your loss.
You are all welcome on the fun posting board of /v/ though. We could use more of your smug anime girls and loli to make anime haters mad.
>But it's still not discussed or allowed here
lies, unless any mod nuke the thread in-sight because personal grudge or thread became pic dumping is totally ok discuss here
also with that logic kantai collection generals shouldn't be allowed here too
>Putting faith in 4chan moderation and rules
>Digimon allowed on /co/
>RWBY not allowed on /a/
>Pokemon and MLP have entire boards to themselves
Am i the only one kinda glad no leaks were made? I think that only increases the hype, plus it's not that long of a wait and we'll most likely be getting the opening and a trailer a few days before the premier just like in the previous volumes.
