Well, looks like I'm retarded
I think /co/ was right, the weapons are getting worse now that monty's gone. I really was expecting something neater out of Winter's sword. Seriously? Another sword? Why not just carry the second one on her hip? What possible purpose could hiding it inside your main sword serve?
I guess we didn't see whatever ultimate thing Crow was gonna do, and apparently his deal has a bunch of settings, but the hand-cannon bit was a little stupid, what with his anime blade hanging down over his fist when he shoots it.
>Why not just carry the second one on her hip? What possible purpose could hiding it inside your main sword serve?
would you prefer to carry two swords around your waist or just one? it's about practicality and ease of use.
>Why not just carry the second one on her hip? What possible purpose could hiding it inside your main sword serve?
Because who would see that coming?
>I guess we didn't see whatever ultimate thing Crow was gonna do
I'm sure it was the scythe mode for his weapon
So what does his weapon do?
It's a sword that bends at the handle and then what?
The only thing I could think of is the element of surprise.
And Qrow's weapon is supposed to be similar to Ruby's since they are both scythe-gun wielders.
>practicality and ease of use
>get a sword custom made to have another sword fit inside of it, and have both be structurally intact
look man, i know the whole shtick is ridiculous weapons, but think about what you just said
I think for Weiss and Winter at least, their primary weapons seem to be the dust glyphs more than anything. As for hiding the sword within the sword? Plot Device/ Practicality of not having to sheathe/carry two seperate swords/ Anime Physics etc.
Other anons have gotten to it before me but yeah. Qrow's weapon is a combo Scythe, Sword and Double Barreled Shotgun/cannon thing.
Not sure you can put that on Monty being gone. Qrow and Winter have been designed for a while, Sheena did an AMA and talked about Winter and we've seen a bit of Qrow in the last season.
I mean I agree with the point, Team BRNZ is just silly, for instance, but I just think those two are bad examples of... bad examples.
>Ojousama Weiss voiced by Yoko Hikasa
I was wishing for it so I'm glad she's actually using her Erica voice from Campione. Her ojou voice is probably my favorite out of the voice types that she uses.
Japan really likes this don't they.
It got pretty heavy advertising in the Akihabara shopping district. Like Skyscraper sized posters, collectors editions of Volume 1 and the sound track etc. A couple of previous thread showcased some of the ads floating around.
Its only been out for 2 day's in Japan right give it some time im sure there will be a good amount of art work.
...especially erotic artwork im talking giantess, vore, tentacles whatever weird stuff Japan is into now.
Luckily Japan's taste in fetishes is considerably better than the west. It'll largely just be rape, futa, and NTR.
As long as the NTR doesn't make me feel as bad as other NTR's I've read, I'll still jerk it
>yfw you realize that it might have gotten higher if there had been more tickets seeing as how it was a limited release that sold out of tickets in ten minutes.
Everyone sleeping, when is Roman going to get broken out?
This season will probably end on that Empire Strikes Back style "lowest point." That means Roman will probably get broken out in the last episode.
Jesus fucking Christ.. What's going to happen if this season ends on a complete cliff hanger?
When Cinder starts her plan with Ironwoods Army
>yfw you realize that the reason it sold so quickly is not because of people who actually saw and liked it, but because from the preview ignorant laymen thought that it would actually be an impressively animated action series
It is going to end on a cliffhanger its suppose to be the end of this story arch.
Most likely beacon being destroyed, Ozpin dying probably.
Beacon students will be lost feeling defeated, the strong will want to continue too fight which will lead them to traversing the world.
Wasn't Roman supposed to just be a minor character who ended up sticking around because he came out so well?
I doubt he'll ever be a main antagonist. If RT know what they're doing he'll just be a recurring minor villain.
We'll never know until we reach the end
Some Nice Non-smut Yang story from last nights thread
>the kek is Pyrrha
Caught up. Unironically looking forwards to the next fight. Heavy machinegun vs. light melee infantery go.
And if mercury the butcher and emerald's the thief
then who's the boy that buys the beef?
That would be way cooler, I'd like for him to be just some droog out to fuck up shit instead of an asset to cinder
>tfw Roman is going to show up in episode 4 or 5 because the general is going to question him for info
I can feel it
>Pyrrha asks Jaune out.
>"Sorry Pyrrha, my dad always said
Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free."
>"Did Jaune just call Pyrrha a cow?"
>"No Nora I think he called her a slut!"
>previous company finally dissolves
>cute friendly ex co-worker who's almost IRL Ruby posts on FB, saying she's found work with a public relations company
>wish her well
>exact response: "Aw thank you, you're sweet! <3"
>she probably thanks everyone like that and you're totally not sweet, but coming from her... you can believe it
Be free, my darling. I'm so happy for you.
I think I know who you're talking about, I found a picture of her anon
Nah, she's taken.
But if something happens, I won't fight it.
>Not using 5e in this day and age
Is this guy still on? I fell asleep.
Warp I'm running a 5e game ffs, that was the whole point of the comment.
I-I made maps and everything...
my biggest gripe with the latest chapter of RWBY is that Winter doesn't sound hot.
I wasn't too sure about Qrow's voice actor choice until I heard the back & forth with Ruby which really sold Vic for me, but I haven't had that moment with Winter's VA yet.
She sounds a bit like dubbed Satsuki, so it's sold for me there. She's nowhere near as collected as her though, which is somewhat disappointing.
Gotta agree with >>77498710, I thought she sounded fine. Not as outstanding as Vic McMichelangelo, but pretty decent. I'm just still disappointed that she's a spineless attack dog for Ironwood.
Dub Satsuki kinda stinks though.
I watched Kill la Kill right after Toradora, so it was a bit less jarring for me. The voice grows on you.
In the intro for the third volume, everyone´s sad at the end right? And there are even implications of people dying.
Is this volume going to be RWBY's attitude era? Does that mean that this will be the best volume?
It's been said that this Volume will have a large tonal shift. The opening seems to have some more dour implications than the last two, although the openings of the series haven't really indicated much about their respective Volumes' content before.
>mfw it turns out they used motion capture of Geoff for all of the drinking scenes
Nope, that was the one I meant to link.
It's alright, went from 3 PC's down to two, they just foiled a plot by a noble to turn himself and his sister immortal, the entire campaign to this point has been inside their mansion.
Next session they hit level three and get to explore the town.
Here's more of the map, if you wanted that.
He said he liked GOT when asked about possibility of character death. That said, it should be obvious that Team RWBY is safe. Qrow, Taiyang, and Raven are the ones I don't see making it out alive.
Thought I'd spoil a bit of the Yandere
>Ever since you confessed your love to Winter, the two of you have been a happy couple
>You even almost forgot that the two of you only met because of your friends
>Granted, they sold you to her, but you still thanked them
>When the time came, Winter didn't want a fancy wedding full of pompous rich people
>And especially, her suitors that she dismissed all those years ago
>Winter just wanted to be legally married to you as fast as possible
>She tore the contract that bound you to her against your will and replaced it with a mutual one
>A ring on your hand
>And one on hers
>You moved into one of her many houses afterwards, which was a large estate outside of Vale
>Winter wanted to see more of Vale, with you
>It wasn't very far from your cell too, it was literally upstairs
>Guess that explains why there were never any windows
>An expanisve green lawn and opulent metal fences surrounded the mansion in the middle
>Life was good
>But you still needed a job
>No good in being stay-at-home husband
>Having no training at all, Winter hired business tutors for you
>Each course was boring and hard as hell
>But you powered through them
>You had to be the best you be could for her
>She too learned with you
>Were you going to cook in the house alone?
>Winter decided she'd stop traveling so much for her job
>Wanting to spend as much of her time with you
>Uregencies would come up every so often though
>And she'd be off everytime
This ain't even the end
He doesn't have to be a main antagionist. He could just be a wild card. On the one hand, he's an unambigious criminal who cares for nobody but himself. On the other hand, that bitch Cinder screwed him over.
>you will live to see Pyrrha die a kek
>There will never be an episode where Qrow and Roman go on a bar crawl
I know we're only three episodes in, but what does everyone think of Volume 3 so far, especially when we compare it to Volume 2 at this point?
Personally, I'm actually enjoying it so far, kind of surprised since V2 was already losing me at this point.
Fights are lame and forced, but the plot's not terrible so far and the new characters are fun. Facial animation has a lot more personalty now which is nice and makes dialogue less droll.
Nigri still blows though.
Animation wise it wasn't bad, it was just kinda uninspired.
Also, I would much rather have seen the cinder, neo, emerald and mercury fight than qrow vs winter, but that's just me.
So far all the fights have been in a tournament, except qrow vs winter.
Tournament fights are in now way forced.
but she's the one chasing him. He doesn't even consider her an option and is oblivious to all of her advances. NTR like that wouldn't work unless they suddenly got into a relationship or something.
Yes, rigging the matches is the only reason why she would hack into the military systems of Atlas. There is absolutely nothing else she would want to do with that sort of access.
Xth for Emerald's piercing red eyes.
Sometimes I wonder why the show has to be so on the nose so often and then people like you post.
>Start to chat with her.
>Check out her awesome rack.
>She says "My eyes are up here."
>I look into their blood redness.
>I am entranced and terrified.
>She stares me down into a cowering pose.
robots in love
I'm really enjoying it, and it's something to look forward to each week rather than something to remember and tolerate. The fights have definitely suffered, but Qrow versus Winter was pretty good, if not exactly Monty levels of good. The plot's actually materializing, and we're getting enough details to be intrigued, but few enough to stay hungry for more.
If the trend continues, I think this could be the season we hit our stride.
All I'm saying is there's a back and forth between thinking "Why did Ruby have to say what makes Yang special?" and "Wow these people are fucking idiots and have no idea what's going on no matter how obvious it is."
and it seems I forgot a bit
If I sing a love song in the shower, you can bet that it's Emerald I'm singing about.
>This is the state of the current RT fanbase
Are they at least gonna get a cameo when shit goes down?
Here we see Mister Cattle Prod hanging out with Bolin.
Look no further.
I really should not be able to use this as much as I do.
Not that anon, but have some Monkey Business then.

Remember the guy Tom Cruise played in Tropic Thunder (just say so you don't look like a pleb) that's basically what I want Papa Schnee to be. Pure asshole but clearly talented and also an ugly manlet, but also hyper competent.
>"Adam, I want you to take a step back and literally FUCK YOUR OWN FACE!!!!"
I'm glad that they mentioned that Weiss has been writing to Winter and Winter had been bothering to read them, and that Winter cared about how Weiss had been at least a bit.
Would have been really nice if what had set her off against Qrow was pushing/touching Weiss though.

Papa Schnee can't come soon enough
It's pretty clear we're entering the "Empire Strikes Back" part of the story.
The bad guys plans are going to go off, the heroes will fight it and will generally lose and things will look like the villains have won setting up for the next season where the heroes manage to pull through.
Pretty basic storytelling, but it works.
It's safe to assume that this "unseen enemy" that Qroq and co refuse to refer to by name is a lot bigger than the White Fang. It's likely whoever Cinder and her group are working for. Remember how they said that fear brings the Grimm? They're aiding the White Fang because they want to start another Human Faunus war, or at least spread a lot of mayhem and destruction. The chaos caused by this will empower the Grimm. Cinder's boss is likely connected to the Grimm, probably a really big, ancient, evil, intelligent one. Since Cinder's last name is Fall, she's likely Autumn, having been turned evil by said ancient evil Grimm.
Now the real questions are how advancing in the tournament benefits them, as it will only bring more attention to the team, and if this greater evil's goal is something beyond just destroying the world.
Simple storytelling techniques are a great writing tool for creators who want to focus on other aspects of the story and narrative. Keeping the story simple allows for more time to be dedicated to action sequences or character relationships, for instance.
>He brings the SDC to it's peak
>However, tens of thousands had to die and more will die in labour camps
>He himself thinks that everyone is an enemy of his
Where were you when Papa Schnee was
>You will never have a pregnancy scare with Yang
>You will never have an argument with her about wither or not to keep the baby
>She will never know if she's cut out to be a mom
>You will never know that if by having the baby Yang might be unhappy for a long time as it would require her to put her career as a huntress on hold
>Not being the responsible one in the relationship and remembering to wear a condom
What if Yang is allergic to latex so condoms are not an option?
What if it was a heat of the moment type of thing, and she was absolutely begging you to fill her with your seed?
What if she secretly wanted you to impregnate her?
>Neo overhears the pregnancy conversation
>Has to be better than Yang at everything
>That includes pregnancy
>Yang is just relieved that she's not pregnant
>Neo walks by already in her second trimester
It's a balloon under a "baby on board" shirt
>Confirmed "questionable" labours
>Confirmed being a hard-ass on his daughters
>Confirmed the most influential "company" in Remnant
The reality is hard, but at least you share it with
Just like communism.
Is this really an insult? I mean it's not like you can just walk up to random pregnant women and insert yourself into their lives.
I mean I can, but I highly doubt we share job histories.
th-this is not what I wanted from cuteposting...
>world of adventure
Anywhere outside the kingdoms would be infested with too many grimm for it to be considered adventuring rather than an extermination
But you're wrong.
The problem is that rendering RWBY style action in text is tricky, in no small part because there's no widespread consensus on how much detail one should use. If you use too much detail, it gets hard to visualize for a lot of people, to say nothing of length. If you use too little, another type of person will (rightly) say that the combat doesn't feel very RWBY like. As an example, if I was to write out the fight from the Red trailer, it'd probably hit the character limit 4 or 5 times over. That particular style of animation that is such a draw for so many is just much easier to animate than it is to write.
Why the fuck would I want to step outside into a world filled with Grimm when I can stay at home with my wiafu? Who knows what kind of grimm that hasn't been discovered yet, there could be spider grimm, dino grimm, fucking Godzilla sized grimm. Fuck that
>not having adventures with a high school girl
Why should I have one or the other when I can have both?
Well, one exception, I suppose.
Given how big a draw the fights are to a lot of the audience, and a world full of grimm, it would feel pretty odd not to have fight scenes if you want a RWBY style adventure. I can't think of a single canon adventure that they've been in that didn't involve fighting.
He seems to be in the majority.
Honestly even in a world where I was popular and young with no responsibilities I'd still prefer to be out in the wilds instead of with my waifu in school.
I might die young snd horrifically but fuck I lived.
>Implying I'd even care if my semblance was absurdly OP.
>Not pushing against limitations to find a solution.
>That feel when no RWBY God Eater clone where you go out in a squad of four and fight massive grimm
Brave men right here
I don't even care about being popular in such a world.
The only thing that matters is that in such a world, it seems like there are no limits on what an individual can achieve.
And using cool as hell weapons and slaying monsters is a legitimate job there.
Everyone has dreamed of being a wizard in the harry potter world, or being a pokemon trainer in pokemon or whatever the fuck you wanna choose. People just think that this world is boring, because there is no infinite potential.
If I was in such a world, I think I'd owe it to humanity to explore and adventure as much as possible. Waifus be damned.
So far I haven't seen any indication for Torchwick's semblance. I'd like for him to have Absolute Immunity to protect him from all fire, ice, electricity, drowning, bullets, etc. He would still basically be a street level mafioso, but hard as hell to kill.
The RWBY world is full of grimm though? I mean, you could probably manage to do one non-combat fic with someone who's semblance is invisibility, but I would still honestly expect most adventures in the RWBY world to involve combat at some point or another.
That still bothers me a little from an astronomical standpoint, but thats what the MST3K mantra is for. Maybe they'll even surprise me and have a good reason for it, though I'm not holding my breath.
I still like our old joke that his semblance is Bullhead Summoning (at least I think that's what those airships he's always escaping in were called.)
The blade hangs down like that because when it extends into a scythe, the barrels would be on top.
I'm not sure why it needs to do that to shoot though. It looks like they could just fire while the sword was in it's normal position.
Yeah thats true but GODZILLA sized? I'd take on a dinosaur grimm but not godzilla
Honestly I always liked those grunt types
>Implying that isn't how the moon got destroyed
I really hope that the color nazis turn out to be like the Imperial guard. High troop count, very uniform in terms of looks and weapons, but very little skill and rely on shooting their target with a fuck load of diddley
I finished the Yang story, here's the cap:
As for the Ruby comforting story, I haven't started yet. I'll post it later tonight, probably at the start of the next thread since I have a class in a bit.
It's QROW, you mongoloids.
Remember how we thought Atlas might be more racist? Guess they let Faunus into their academy too.
Someone gets it
Sounds like a plan
I'm fucking done.
See you fucks in five hours.
She's a qt.
For real, maybe they are still racist, but she's just hyper competent.
>We sent the horn-heads into the forest to the south of Atlas. You know, the one with the Behemoths, figured it'd be a faunus bloodbath but at least the forest will have a reduced grimm population.
>A week later, we were expanding bases and civiizan trade routes into and through the forest.
>She was the only one left. When reporting she offered the crispest salute and reported a 100% kill confirm.
>Haven't seen a grimm out here since.
Or something like that.
I don't know, she's a qt.
