>What is RWBY?
It's a show produced by Roosterteeth, created and animated by Monty Oum of Haloid and Dead Fantasy. See Google for more info.
>Is it good?
Not really. The animation and pacing are terrible, but everything else is fun if not tolerable.
>Why do these threads still exist then
Enough people like it for their own reasons despite the aforementioned "Not being good"
Volume 2 is Go and episode 3 is live
Rules of /RWBY/
>1. Love RWBY, Hate RWBY, just don't try to tell us it's good.
>2. If it's a good idea, they probably won't write it.
>2a. Unless they steal it. We wish.
>3. Don't believe his lies.

Hope you see it in time!
I still think they should've let Roman infiltrate Beacon with them
I noticed in the last thread that some fella put some hard work into the Image in the OP, and was disappointed to realise he wouldn't make the time required to set it up.
I figured I'd give a gift and do it for him. I hope he gets to see it before he it 404s.
At least it's a Yang episode I guess. Let's beat the shit out of some club sluts yeah?
>no General number and edition
Well you tried
This one here is #313 by the way
So next one better have a nice big #314 on it
>General #313: Anon Fucked Up Edition.
Anyway, we're expecting the new episode when?
I'm hoping the anon with the early links comes within 2 hours, or I won't be able to see the new ep before I head out for GotG. Or rip it for your download pleasure.
>Not even numbered
This is thread 313. When the next thread gets made, remember to include the numbers.
AND a Pi pun. Even if it's about one of the waifu's being a QT 3.14.
I'd suggest the robot lass for obvious reasons.
If it's like last week it'll come at around 2:30. I guess you could rip it later? I'm sure people would still appreciate it.
Penny is a very qt 3.14. One with nuts. Walnut?
Reminder that Joe the Cat is best and only acceptable Faunus
No, I'm saying the current time here, right where I live, is 15:30. Well, 15:47 by now.
When our lord and savior link-anon finds it at around 2:30 est. Unless Rooster Teeth finds a way to block the files because someone was dumb enough to spread it outside of 4chan.
Ah, then the episode should come at around 19:30 for you, assuming it's like last week.
>tfw wont be able to watch episode until tomorrow
oh well, such is life in the NFL
Yeah, OK, I'm assuming they're NFL then?
Anyhow, the No Food League was a joke on you having no food, poor, therefore needing to work, etc. Yeah, a joke is never funny when you have to explain it.
And another Anon who gave detailed descriptions to Monty's girlfriend. Still, unless they switch to another website then blip, they can't really do anything about it.
They won't, because muh long ads.
RT really are whores for ads, aren't they? I wonder how much of their income comes from ads, how much from sponsorships and how much from the RT store.
RT ad reads are the first ones that have ever worked on me.
I started ordering NatureBox because of them and I'm thinking about Dollar Shave Club.
They're making money from doing what they love, and allowing audiences to get it for free, with subs getting access only a few hours earlier. So, I don't mind them making money out of it. Heck, I'll watch the show when it airs on their website always at least once, because why not? The only reason I rip it is so I can watch comfortably from my living room 40'+ TV.
I personally Do not like dollar shave club. then again I'm the guy who uses the shaving cream brush, have a fancy handle for my razor and use after shave so I'm a bit of a shaving elitist.
Think we'll ever see some of the Beacon seniors?
I'm wondering how team RWBY stacks up against the rest of the school. It would be kind of lame if they turn out to be one of the best overall teams, since they're only first year students.
I do this most of the time, but every once in a while I like to tackle it with a razor and foam to get super-smooth.
Goddamn, why is Joel so handsome. He most be a vampire or some other kind of immortal.
Fuck that, I want some more 7 Days To Die.
>that fucking reaction when the zombies started tunneling under the walls
So guys, what are your predictions for this episode?
>That last episode when Ryan, Michael Ray and Gavin all fuck off to the suburbs because it looks nicer.
>Jack and Geoff fortifying the shitty old auto shop
>The suburbs get fucking leveled
>Team OG safe and happy in their bunker.
>.............- Gavin's inner thoughts
I guarantee you the roof collapsing never once crossed his mind. He forgot that the game had physics.
>Anywhere Ryan and gavin go death follows
Anywhere Ryan goes he brings death with him.
And usually delivers it straight to Gav.
Oh goodness me, how COULD I be so naive.
Forgive me for not knowing all the prefered nicknames for your stupid ships of fictional characters.
Boy do I feel the fool for not knowing that. Lawdy lawdy.
We arguing? Fantastic.
McFarlane outdid themselves. Got evidence?
Just look at the picture. It's clear as day.
episode will start right where we left off with ruby and penny.
penny will be acting hurt at her friends "shocked" face and start to stammer incoherently, quickly getting ready to run
ruby grabs her arm as shes turning around and with a look that can only be described as a 5yearold on christmas day she says "THATS SOOOO COOOLLL"
penny tilts her heads and hicups, scene cut
yang and assface pull up outside the club. yang tells assface to wait here for a second while she greets her old friends. the doors are thrown open and we get pic related.
a flash of blue errupts around yang and the thugs go flying, assface is at the door with his shit grin.
yang walks further into the club like the sexy badass she is only to be greeted by the twins, who have not forgotten the last time yang was here. they both assume their battle stances when a blur of yellow zooms past them. yang grabs both twins by the collar and hauls them up to the bar.
there junior sits, head hanging down in dismay over a glass. yang drops the twins down on the floor "Now is this anyway to treat a customer?" scene cut
blake and sun are walking around the warehouse district when they start to hear cheering. the two rush over to the nearest window but find the view less then accessable. being the animals they are, the two quickly climb the building and peer in through the roof.
here we see the whitefang rally, torchwic is being a boss giving a great speech and the crowd is going nuts, he reaches up to a massive covered object behind and yanks.
episode ends when the reveal of metal gear, the crowd cheering even louder, and torchwic laughing
whats actually gonna happen today is an episode entirely on velvet or some other non RWBY team, cause you know they will
>those stick-thin vascular arms
>that bumpy-looking hair
I don't understand how RT can look at these and think they aren't ugly as hell.
It's not like I have high standards for this shit. I've never bought a figurine in my life.
Let me get this straight, you guys enjoy this despite the fact that its shit? You just watch and talk about how bad it, the wasted potential, and probably draw porn?
Sounds like fun
this is the only reason you need to stay, anon
No you dumbass, he meant a basketball court.
The people who like it acknowledge the criticism full well and agree with it, but they like it for some aspect like music, fight scenes, or the cute girls. If you don't like it, fine. If you do, fine. But we've had this talk before, hence why we have it stuck in the OP.
They both look chunkier and have the wrong body type. Not to mention the K-On faces.
It would be good art if it was just 2 girls cosplaying or something, but it's not good art of the Militades.
Ok RWBY fans, which girl do you pick to
beat all other girls in a 1v1 freestyle rap battle judged by Roman and scored on total number of sick burns?
It's not the worst I've seen so I saved it. Take this instead.
Yang will win because she just raps about how she's going to smoke Cinder. It's terrible, but good enough that Roman gets caught up in it and gives her the win because fuck that bitch.
>Ruby's childhood friend
>Is the ultimate Betalord
>Is far more useless than Jaune
>Is afraid of Yang.
If this fucking happens holy shit.
>"She always protected me back then"
>"Now it's my turn to protect you"
>That let's play where everyone describes the worst job they have ever had
>Geoff worked at a chicken fast food chain
>Jack dug holes in Georgia
>Ryan worked for a conservative radio station
>Gavin's was when he got wet one time while filming
Yang or Weiss, probably.
Yang probably listens to rap a lot so she would actually know what the fuck she's doing, Weiss can come up with insults well enough.
In canon, Ruby wins because RUBYWINSLOL
And on that day, the ship no one ever expected set sail, full-speed ahead.
>Decides to fight Weiss for the rights to Jaune

I'm not /v/ in the slightest, but I can confirm that your average GameStop customer is retarded. It's usually mothers with 8-year-olds that want Call of Duty because "that one kid that's totally hardcore at my school plays it all the time".
They walk out with a WiiU and Mario Kart because the kid liked the demo and the mother liked not blowing their money on shootybangs for her kid. I get commended for selling higher than expected. Everyone goes home happy.
You both gave me a mini heart attack for a second there
The more casual players usually stick to WiiU. People that want to be brand loyal go with whatever brand they're loyal to, usually PS3/4 or one of the Boxes.
PC Game Mustard Race is real, though. No joke, a lot of good games aren't exclusives anymore, and since pretty much every game is just a port from a PC version, getting games on PC is pretty stupid easy, and is usually cheaper, too.
> Just a quick bit of silly regarding Volume 2, Episode 4, scheduled to air tonight and promised to be one of the longest episodes so far and 'epic'. I guess I'm just in a quick and silly mood...
>Jaune is haunted by Pyrrha apologizing intensifies

>Decides to animate his strange dream for the world.
Set that shit up so Cinder dies and the villian subplots we have going now get resolved, and the Grimm become the real threat, as it fucking should be.
There were also some cool and funny lines in there too. When Sun says that he "does it" all the time, Weiss thought he was making love 24/7. But then Sun clarified that he climbs trees all the time. Now that is some nice, subtle innuendo.
>Weiss thought he was making love 24/7.

Most of the tournament will be a montage of a bunch of random faggots who we'll never see in the show again getting bodied by RWBY, JNPR, CRDL, and CFVY, and then it will be a proper sixteen man bracket.
Guaranteed to be #rekt early on:
>All of CRDL
>Blake (she's expendable)
>MAYBE Jaune (he'll beat Cardin first and then lose because of stupid shit, probably forfeiting to Weiss in an attempt to get up in her guts or somehow cutting off some of Yang's hair during a match which makes her go into beast mode)
>Another member of JNPR (probably Ren or Pyrrah)
Ruby is guaranteed to be in the grand final. I want Ruby vs Jaune, but it's not gonna happen because the finals have to be the good guy vs the bad guy/the guy who the fandom doesn't like. Although I wouldn't lose hope that Ruby vs Jaune wouldn't happen, it'll probably be the match that gets Ruby into the grand finals.
>Timeskip, Team RWBY are now senior badasses close to graduating

>Encounter more and more Grimm, including kinds they've never seen before.
>Really play up the horror aspect regarding the Grimm
>finally they capture the penultimate cultist, who when interrogated reveals the cults plan.
>Cult leader is leading a fuckhueg army of Grimm against Beacon, the source of the main threat to Grimms.
>Gonna launch a sneak attack using their secret weapon, The Cumulo-Grimmbus, a colossal sentient stormcloud that hides their movements.
>Team RWBY can't make it back in time
>Too far away to even get a warning out
>Defending Beacon will be left to the staff and any Hunter teams still there (Read: JNPR and maybe COFV and CRDL)
>Sweet battle occurs, day is saved
She really took that awfully well. And fast. Oh well, RWBY writing.
>Penny: One day, it will be my job to save the world
Jesus fucking Christ, this clipping
This is a fucking awful episode
tons of pandering
lackluster voice acting
stupid stupid STUPID writing
saying shit like 'freezerburn' and 'ladybug' and 'nuts and dolts' during fights and shit as a nod to the audience
That fucking ending with Yang
Getting hit makes her strongerit's all bullshit goddamn
yes i mad
honestly I was expecting so much more and then it's just a big pile of shit
using shipping names for team attack names
...not sure how to feel about this
Yang's semblance is turning damage received into damage amplification
Now THAT's cool
So who's the new girl a self-insert of?
Holy shit this episode has horrible banding issues
Oh, shit, you're right. I forgot about them.
I'm fucking around with a theoretical bracket with randomized participants. Winner of each match is decided with what works better for the plot (in the eyes of Monty). If I get it finished I'll post it here and explain my results.
I want to lick her horns.
I haven’t finished the episode either, just making these as I watch it.
YANG A BEST, HOLY FUCK.
ALL OTHER GIRLS ARE WEAK AS FUCK.
More great ruby faces are always appreciated.
>Sun and Neptune left them to go get Ramen, the stand is run by Shopkeep
>Weiss trying and failing at puns and Yang telling her she's shit at it
This episode was pretty good. Though I still didn't get anything I wanted out of the club.
Regardless, here's the 16-man bracket anyway. This one is more or less the dream bracket. Participants were randomly pitted against each other, and while most of these results are pretty bullshit (Ex. Yang would DESTROY Jaune, but she needed to lose in order to get the Jaune vs Pyrrah match) this is what I'm 99% sure would happen if Monty did this in the show.
And so are Roman faces.
I know I shouldn't expect much
but could they get decent voice actors?
could they fix the clipping?
could they not make the walls this super obvious gradient?
could they make sure the textures don't look super shitty at close range?
could they write something above the 3rd grade level?
could they introduce new characters without doing the anime-esque 'random person with heterochromia shows up and has a cool power then leaves right away before talking or doing anything'?
Could they possibly not make every character totally invincible?
Could they find a way to create characters who are believable and not just cookie cutter tropes and one liners?
Fuck, it’s the shitty effect from the intro, and did she really say Ladybug?
i take it this was the first episode you've seen then?
also, i'm betting
>could they fix the clipping?
>could they not make the walls this super obvious gradient?
>could they make sure the textures don't look super shitty at close range?
>could they write something above the 3rd grade level?
are all because monty insists on using fucking poser instead of a real 3d modeling and animating program
>Ryan admitting he was a male model at one point
The mad king just gets better and better
Hold me, I can’t stop cringing
Hulk Yang is cool though.
The best moment of this episode.
Agreed. I’m a yurifag, but holy shit was that cringe worthy. Wouldn’t have thought I’d say that, but more Neptune, please.
>shouting ship names
Yeah it was dumb, but also kinda makes sense in that they're significantly less awkward to shout in the middle of a fight than "Weiss and Yang!" "Now Me and Blake!" to communicate with teammates
Come on, there are only so many color and element themed combo names that can exist, Just because there was a little logical overlap for fighting move combos is not a reason to be upset.
In fact, I'm impressed they only had one "fanon" name in there out of all those mixes.
>Ruby and Penny are adorable and Ruby tells Penny she has a soul
>Yang tries to get info out of Junior on Torchwick but he don't know shit
>Blake and Sun go to spy on terrorists, get noticed by Roman
>Metal gear chase scene with RWBY +SN, Roman is piloting MG
>Fight between RWBY and Metal Gear with combo attacks and Yang starring as Hulk
>Torchwick saved by Neo and her umbrella
I think I'm in love
Also I get a Harime Nui vibe from her
>Sun describing the Robot
>Yang asks where they are
>Running right by them
My fucking sides god damn it
Fuck this episode literally everything they could have done to make the show suck, they did
acknowledge shippers : check
take away any consequences by making characters essentially invincible: check
cringe worthy characters (heterochromia?): check
even shittier animation (Clipping, banding) :check
awful voice acting: check
awful lip syncing: check
Can anything save RWBY?
>Why the fuck are they calling out attacks at all? Can they stop being a generic wannabe anime for five fucking seconds?
Because Ruby's telling them what to do, and they don't have a psychic connection that lets them know what each other is thinking at all times?
>They can't read each other's minds apparently. (unlike with their first team fight, so it seams..)
In the fight vs the Deathstalker and Nevermore, they kinda didn't accomplish much until Ruby came up with that plan and TALKED to WBY about it.
Communication in team fights is still king.
I've seen plenty of corsets. The picture is at an odd angle and I'm looking at what appears to be a fucking patch of skin between the waist of the pants and the bottom of her top, with a V-shaped strip of cloth from the top down to her crotch.
It looks like some sort of leotard or swimsuit at that angle.
Shouting your attack names isn’t generic anime, it’s either really stupid shounen anime or
super awesome sports anime
I’m pretty indifferent towards it being in RWBY, it was going to come at some point or another, it’s just that this was a special kind of stupid.
>cringe worthy characters (heterochromia?)
Fuck you, she’s great. Just look at how small and moe she is next to Roman.
>Yang gets hit
YES! NO PLOT ARMO-
>Gets up, pissed off
As cool as her getting mad was, I can do with more characters getting crushed like that.
Forgot the picture fuck.
But now I'm in a dilemma, I can't decide wether to choose Coco or Neapolitan now!
Roman called her Neo...
Aw God Damnit!
Would you rather full 1080p webms or smaller ones? Not that it matters much for fight scenes though.
I was gonna say actually losing because you know Monty isn't keeping track of power levels, but her getting DQ'd after literally killing a competitor (and half of the audience) seems more accurate at this point.
>Trailers are now cannon
>Junior and twins show up
>Metal Gear Fang
>Ruby coming up with creative fight names
>Nui look a like shows up, Monty just watched KLK
>Sun and Neptune ditch at the last minute
Guys, what's happening?
I liked it This or episode 1 of vol. 2 are my favorites so far
>>Ruby coming up with creative fight names
>Mercury keeps toying with her while she is in rage mode
>Her aura becomes to overwhelming and the match is called in Mercury's favor.
Take the full version of that, man.
Well, you know. Now we all do for sure. Yay?
No, this one, sorry.
Just watch the 1080p one. It's slow but at least you'll see it.
>How they fuck were they gonna fuck shit up in a NOT!Metal Gear that couldn't stand up to four freshman?
Going to sort of quote myself here from a few threads ago regarding strength and talent of Hunters/Huntresses and those who go to Beacon.
If we go by the chess piece artifact scheme from initiation, Ruby's entering class was at most 48 if we include at least one pair of pawns and duplicates of the white and black king and queen, and as few as 20 if we leave out pawns and group the king and queen across colors. Think about that. In a kingdom of likely tens if not hundreds of millions the only academy that trains future Hunters and Huntresses takes AT MOST ~50 per year.
These kids have to be like the friggin top one millionth (not an exaggeration) of fighters/students assuming Beacon is the only Hunter Academy they have. Even if the kingdom has as many as say 100 Hunter Academies with similar capacities and selectiveness (absolutely no evidence of that anywhere), that's still the top 1% of the top 1% of humans in terms of combat, abilities, tactics, and strategy.
Sooo, even if they're "just freshmen" they probably should be able to take down a small mech piloted by someone unfamiliar with it.
>Big guy isn't Gavin
we're never getting Gavi are we?
Or it could be great.
But probably fucking awful.
When is RWBY getting a Kumagawa?
Damn Neptune. It's a good thing you're pretty, because you are dumb.
>Neapolitan's eyes change between warehouse and battlefield
I find that incredibly likely, if only because Yang does the same exact thing.
Hey, now we have a tell for when he's doing her illusion bullshit!
Webm. Only the important part.
that's the problem with these "special schools," they're always underpopulated if you look at the numbers.
If you follow the sorting hat ceremony, didn't Hogwarts barely have more than 100-200 students across all 7 years?
Jesus, Blip has finished processing the episode, but it looks like they're displaying an error page intentionally. Guessing it actually is blocked at the moment.
