I was afraid when RWBY up their graphics, it will be a burden animating it because I have seen the action in much slower stride compare to last seasons of older model animations. Sometimes, their facial movements get awkward
This episode had better animation in the battle, faster and smoother and fluid
While there is strength in forgiveness, I believe it's much stronger to reword it as having the Chameleon girl aid Blake to help right the wrongs she has committed. To atone that way
The finale isn't as strong. I feel Yang going psychological talk about Raven running away felt unwarranted because we barely know anything about Raven. Jaune's power is revealed to be healing. I'm fine with that since they have wonder what Jaune would be. Nora, I think, is the random one who can turn off pain. I feel that didn't have build up.
For voice acting, Adam and Raven had terrible voice acting. Adam didn't get a fight scene with Blake. It was pretty tied down conveniently on Blake's end. The biggest fight for this season was Cinder vs Raven. There wasn't much fights in this season to begin with.
The RWBY saga continues on Crunchyroll with the addition of RWBY Volume 6 to the catalog. The latest chapters will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia starting today at 3:00pm Pacific Time.
Ep 6 - it felt like we are reliving the Dungeon Well from Ocarina of Time with the Grim looking and acting like ReDead.
Ruby's Silver Eye acts like deus ex machina
Grandma reveals she has silver eyes as well
we arrived at an abandoned town. Things were fine until we found dead bodies. Didn't expect RWBY to dabble in horror
with Ozpin and Selma origin story revealed, I joked before we got into it that Ozpin and Selma were lovers.
Ozpin died of sickness. Selma went to beg the gods to bring him back. Light rejected it. Darkness accepted it. Light found out and fought Darkness before the two made up somehow (don't know why) and cursed her with immortality
origin story was ok. Just had issues with how Selma attack Ozpin after Ozpin took the time to tell her the truth of what god of light said to him after they had a happy life with 4 maidens
There was no reason for her attack. I get she wants to be the new god and hates the gods for cursing her with immortality and taking away Ozpin
So the gang is mad at Ozpin for not having a plan? It's realistic Ozpin has no plan because there is no way to kill Selma yet. (I think they have to get world peace, get the 4 relics, summon the two gods and take away Selma's immortality. Though, the gods cursed her because of her selfishness.)
Can't believe Jinn's reveal of Ozpin's flashback shook Qrow's faith in him. Last time, Qrow sacrifice so much for Ozpin. They screwed his character a bit
Same with Blake and Adam - don't recall Blake being scared, Adam reduced to being a stalker (his voice acting is still bad unfortunately)
It was mediocre and it was basically a set up for Selma's invasion of Atlas
Important stuff: establishing Ozpin and Selma's backstory explaining Ruby's Silver Eyes ability Yang and Blake's victory over Adam
While I'm not against Yang and Blake's ship tease, I felt it was superficial after reducing Adam into a petty boyfriend squabble over Blake choosing Yang
Jaune should been the first to protest instead of Ruby to not leave the fortress in its need of help when they accidentally disable the robot's left arm. Jaune has family at the fortress. It would make sense
RWBY fans now have new episodes to add to their queues! Crunchyroll has officially gone live with RWBY Volume 7, with the first episode of the season now available to stream for members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East.
If you need to catch up, you can also catch the first six Volumes on Crunchyroll, as well as the Japanese dub of Volumes 1-3. Future episodes of RWBY will launch 7 days after their debut on Rooster Teeth.
Here's how Rooster Teeth describes the first episode of Volume 7:
Our heroes have finally made it to Atlas, but are they truly as safe as they’d hoped? This shining city in the clouds may be a beacon of hope for Remnant, but it casts a dark shadow…
I binged season 7. I don't hate RWBY. I love the characters but hate the story enough I will continue to watch it to the very end.
I liked the political factions element as the franchise really lack on world building; however, without spoilers, it doesn't do a good job of executing a gray morale equally for the factions
- Weiss's father - not much is fleshed out for Weiss family issues. He was a pawn to used for poltical scandals and causing more chaos and distrust which attracts Grim - Robin Hill (one of her names has "Y" to replace the "I". Too lazy to correct it) - she's the Mantle hero, but she shouldn't be in politics when she just said I'm not a good public speaker. She resorted to vigilantism. That shows some grey to her morale actions. They didn't capitalize on her just like Weiss's father. - Ironwood - he had the most screentime and character development. It's easy to villainize the military in a lot of fictional stuff because the whole soldier, sacrificing the few for the many is a common thing.
I felt conflict was forced and for no good logical, non character driven flaw rift between Ironwood and Ruby's group. They could have just done their separate thing: Ironwood protect the relic and Ruby's group protect the people. Instead, Ironwood declare marshal law and wasted his time fighting Ruby's group. Ruby's group being hypocrital as well wasted time fighting them instead of protecting the people and Winter Maiden.
The biggest stupidity of writing and out of character moment was Qrow. I love Qrow as he's my favorite male character in a pretty female dominated cast. Why would the writers push Qrow for no illogical reason to team up with a psychotic, scorpion killer guy (who in the last few seasons tried to murder Ruby, his niece) to fight against Clover, the fishing rod Atlas soldier. There were a lot of weird yaoi tease? Not sure if I was over thinking it. Robin also remark on that. It was Qrow vs Scorpion Guy vs Clover but it derailed into Qrow and Scorpion vs Clover. Clover is not going to kill anyone. He's a soldier obeying to arrest people. (reason why Ruby's team won is because two of the soldiers hesitant and kept asking the girls to step down while fighting) That was pretty idiotic writing for the sake of forcing a fight scene of many.
Oh yeah, there are a lot of ship moments which some of them felt force (Blake and Yang) or convoluted or rushed (Rin and Nora)
Season 7 had potential but there were some stupid things.
I'm not really sure if I want to continue this show. I feel like dropping it but I might as well see it to the end. Ep 8 started off with a set up and how messed up everyone is from the stress and how fearful our big bad is.
They really do make Ironheart stupid needlessly because if he knows Grimm are attracted to negative human emotions, why did he gun down someone?
Penny and the gang including an invisibility user with a small field infiltrate Ironheart's ship while Ironheart forces Watts to help him. They mentioned Semblance and I forgot Ruby's Semblance is transforming into petals. Penny explains how Ruby can do the same to others. Comically, Ruby didn't know she can do that. Ironheart's men get a 2nd rematch with Ruby's group. They did manage to grab Penny's sword. I forgot how ludicrous Penny's swords are because they are attached to wires which makes it unrealistically move. I know it's fiction. Watts appears to be using Ironheart and comes up with a suggestion on recruiting Penny to their side after Ironheart's men could capture Penny. Somehow Nora was able to smash an energy barrier but got cracks all over her body.
For character development, we get some conversations on sisters feud with Ruby and Yang from Weiss and the gang's perspective.
Ep 4 has some soap opera drama between Yang and Ren due to stress. Stress is everywhere for our young folks. Cinder get some screen time and frustration of not being acknowledged and trusted by the big bad lady when all Cinder wants is to take the Winter Maiden. Feels weird to see Cinder this way after all these seasons.
Oh yeah, Weiss and gang return to the Weiss mansion to take care of Nora.
Not much progress on the gang in prison. I feel sick seeing Qrow feeling bad over Clover's death. It was such nonsense.
We had a Penny vs Cinder fight. Cinder had that weird (ironic?) (hypocritical?) scene when she tells Penny that she serves no one.
We had a river of Grimm as a horrifying reveal/cliffhanger for our episode. They need to do more solid world building. They just kept adding new things without building the foundation first and then build the next level logically.
Watts, the mustache guy, took advantage of Ironwood's rage and took the broken communication device (Ironwood threw it at him).
Despite Ruby's message, Penny fails to push the tower. We get a lot of cameos during Ruby's message scene.
Finally an episode that I enjoyed this season. Out of the fairy tale inspired background, Ruby is based on Red Riding Hood, Weiss is Snow White, Yang is Goldilocks, and Blake is Beauty and Beast (?), Cinder has more of it ingrained. She has an abusive step mother and step sisters. I can't remember the main girls had any more. It's just aesthetics compared to Cinder who had Cinderella's elements in it.
I don't feel bad for Cinder at all. I find it ironic that she went from her step mother to Salem, being controlled. It feels weird to see some of these characters who seem independent to have a "motherly" devotion to Salem. It seems the episode carries an implication that Cinder will dethrone Salem. For me personally, Cinder doesn't have the big bad villain traits. Salem so far is the appropriate big bad for this show.
Sort of reveal why the monsters can talk. We don't have any solid confirmation. I like this reveal better than the last few episodes where we had a random monster standing on its hind legs, growing wings, and then talking.
Seems Ruby master her sliver eyes.
The tall man betrays Selma. Selma who supposed to be all powerful didn't notice Otto in disguise. The fight choreography for Selma's first fight wasn't that spectacular.
They magically blew up the whale. Ozpin was collecting kinetic energy in his cane for many of his life spans. However, I felt that was way too convenient to taking care of the problem.
I like the potential of 3 factions but with the writing on Ironwood's character and the military, it felt confusing on his approach to save Mantle. It's not even making the morality grey. They just doing a poor job to villainize Ironwood.
Okay, I misunderstood. Ironwood will destroy Mantle to get back Penny. He in charge of Atlas. Qrow and Robyn are on their way to assassinate Ironwood. We have another argument and yelling contest in Ruby's group on their approach in solving their problems with Ironwood and Salem. Ironwood's decisions made one soldier want to leave the group. Winter arrests him before Ironwood shot him in the back.
Ren confessed to Nora and Nora is not feeling it considering Nora kissed Ren a while back.
It's an okay episode. Just a bit slow. Wasn't feeling sympathetic to the characters anymore. I stopped caring for them.
I felt it was way too plot convenient that they have a genie (I must have forgot they have those characters) to grant wishes. They provided schematics and specifics. Still, way too easy for Penny to be free from her virus and then saving people of Mantle. How many wishes do they get? I assume 3?
Cinder is in the crowd. There will always be trouble.
Oh the fight against Ironwood was short and not that memorable. The fight scenes in RWBY have become secondary and the choreography with the length have fallen ever since Monty's death.
The warning was justified. Cinder started tossing people into the abyss. Neo joins in Cinder's cause to get revenge on Ruby. However, she slashes Yang who intercepts the attack and then fall into the abyss. I doubt they will kill of Yang in this series. She's one of the 4 titular characters. They used an awful lot of slow mo for Yang's scene.
Ironwood just killed off Weiss's father. He proceeds to kill Winter.
Things are a roller coaster. Just when things are good, it quickly turns bad.
