Latest episode features a ton of lore and world building which the series severely lacks in the beginning for season 1 and 2. However, it still feels disconnect, and I have to be honest, I wasn't interested. I'm more interested in the characters and their stories since RWBY's biggest draw is their characters while their story and lore is pretty lacking.
Also, no one stopped Crow from drinking or going to the doctor when he was poisoned. No, we had a bonfire and story telling from Crow with some sass or something from Jaune. Speaking of Jaune, he oddly has the most spotlight and talking compared to the RWBY girls, and maybe because o Pyrrha's death. Ruby should have some significance as she is targeted. It's weird she didn't have much to talk.
Caught up to Volume 4, Episode 9: Got to see what's going on with the show, and the lore displayed for the show and the World of Remnant parts only helped a tad in terms of story. Now, Yang's just trying to get back on the saddle, Weiss is trying to break out after her fortune and heiress position gets screwed by her own dad, Yang goes back to her home with Sun and get in serious trouble and after an messed up fight against the scorpion faunus, Ruby's group end up loafing around on a poisonous sting by the story time Quow had to give. As of this episode, I feel like they're dredging up even more problems than solutions and we could lose two good characters here.
Current Situation: I wanted another excuse to use Enterprise as an avatar again.
While it was shaky at first I feel that this season has really solidified. It's interesting seeing each member's character development. Weiss's development justifies her attitude and makes her acceptableand I think it's the most interesting clos ly followed by Yang and Blake's. It's a nice contrast to see the fiery yang turn into a defeated one. Blake's back story is also pretty cool and the White fang has always been a pretty big part of the story. It's cool to learn about the other factions of the White fang. Ruby's development is really... Lackluster. Their treck seems kinda pointless and Jon really needs to get his shit together. Coincidentally if he had just stood guard when Ospin told him to Pyrrah wouldn't have died. Don't know why the Ninja gunman is being so edgy these episodes.
last week's episode focused on Lie Ren and Nora's flashback. It was a decent episode - though I didn't feel much for Lie Ren's loss of his family. It was great to see development on the two characters. Nora's personally is quite dramatic from her young self to her current self.
A cliffhanger preparing for he epic battle between the new team RWBY and this badass looking grim. Ren's backstory was really weak since there was little allusion or buildup to it but his backstory episode wasn't so bad. Also little Nora was pretty adorable as was Ren's accent.
I feel this season was a bit weaker compared to last season which had more content and more material as well as a startling finale that had the death of Pyrrha.
For some reason, Ruby didn't get a lot of development out of 4 main female characters who all had their own journey. Instead, to replace Ruby with Jaune and then Lie Ren and Nora. It was nice to see Lie Ren deliver the final blow, but I thought it would be better if he shout out pass his stoicness when killing the beast to get revenge for his mother, father, village.
For the battle, the action was good but it had a lot of weird interruptions such as Nora telling Lie Ren not to look at her panties.
Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?
The new volume aired last week in selected theaters as part of a Fathom Events special screening. Crunchyroll viewers in all regions excluding Asia can access it here on the website starting tomorrow at 8 am PDT.
I got behind. I did watch it. I hardly remember what I watch. The last episodes were slow and didn't really progress the plot
It was just more needless exposition or not enough of the real stuff on Ruby and Yang's family members which I like the characters. Ozpin and Raven were awfully vague like they didn't want to give away all of the information. They should try to make it suspenseful at least.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.
