Last I heard of this clusterfuck of a company two guys left because they were caught sending dick pics to people they thought were underage girls, one of them going so far as to comply with the scammer's request to buy a giant dildo and shove it up his ass while taking a photo of it.

>>7098 I dropped off from RT after RWBY hit. No idea how it got so popular. It had awful animation and worse writing. I mostly lost interest after RvB was pushed to the side. But RWBY just killed it for me.
>>7098 They honestly should've stopped when they killed off Church for the second time.
>>7140 RWBY had good fight scenes from an e-celeb. And that was it. The e-celeb was an amateur and insisted on using amateur tools, which is why the animation sucked: it allowed _him_ to make the good fight scenes. The writing was done by people who had never done any script writing before. It wasn't supposed to matter, because it was only there to glue together the fight scenes. And then the e-celeb's also e-celeb, cam-whore trophy girlfriend killed him with her cats.

>>7285 >an amateur and insisted on using amateur tools, which is why the animation sucked I disagree, it's not the tools, but the user/artist that matters, and the proof is in the fact that when they went to a "professional" tool like Maya with Volume 4, the animation got worse. Sure the models looked better, and it had better lighting overall, but the animation was stiff and sometimes non-existing. There are also plenty of great animations done in Blender, even if it's not an industry standard tool, so it's really not the program that matters, but how you use it. Monty knew how to use, whatever he used, and made some cool fight scenes. Furthermore, while it is true that he was an amateur, as he did not have an arts degree, nor did he take animation courses at University, as he was self-taught, he did have some talent and could make some good fight scenes, so I hope you are not using "amateur" as a derogatory term, since all drawfags here are probably all amateurs as well. >And that was it. I liked the music, especially during fight scenes, and it's the only thing that is still somewhat good even with modern RWBY. With all that said, was RWBY a good show? No. Was it overall well animated? No, they had to cut a lot of corners, especially in Volume 1, but the fights were well animated, and that is what matters. Did it have potential to be a good show? Maybe, I think every bad show/movie/book had the potential to be good, so that's not saying much.
>>7285 Dont forget Omi plagiarized touhou mmd models too.
>>7299 No, I don't mean amateur as a derogatory term, just that it didn't fit into the corporate animation assembly line that it was supposed to drive. The thing is, all those University-educated animators that they hired to do everything but the fights could barely animate to begin with, and were thus worse when using an unfamiliar tool, and a tool that they were resistant to using (because it doesn't benefit their resumes). It's really hard to separate the music from the fight scenes. Monty was a dancer. He knew how to choreograph motion to sound. They're a packaged pair. He also knew when to ignore the laws of physics to produce a visually appealing action, something that can't be trained in a formal environment.

>>7763 I haven't watched the show since Season 14 (2016). Caught episodes of season 15 and 16 later on and things really went downhill.

>>7098 >Because the dream is long dead No, that's because it wasn't really much of a dream to begin with. I mean I grew up when Machinima used to mean machinima, and not some defective youtube scam. And let's honest was Red vs. Blue as it first came really any good? Or even funny? Would any of it's actual vidya humor even stand up to the greatest shitposts ever placed online from any chanboard? You know in your heart it's true that R vs. B was just your typical Austin hipster shit joint. Maybe vaguely seeking old school Funhaus run through the glory years of old demo disks was kinda charming. But when you live in an era where items like demo disks have all but faded from site and all that's left is hipstery shit from itch.io that ain't even games, and flash just ain't going to be around none of the earnest charm that made whatever Roosterteeth was going to be gone faster than a black woman's virginity on Epstein Island, with no refunds for your time. But let's be real here that garage band feeling can't exist in an era where all the best dives got gentrified and faggots moved in and made it impossible for you afford living in the neighborhood. And then replacing said neighborhood with no smoking signs out the wazoo, and bars where the minimum drink cost is like 50$ just to hang, in a shitty looking building with no windows. And because the HALO babby's first FPS + MAH FIRST LORE BRAH schtick was dying because the hype was fading, the guys running rooster teeth wanted that mystical GOLDEN TICKET (tm) where they could rake in the venture capital to expand their fake "community" and try to become a real studio, rather than low budget shit posty dudes. Problem as one anon pointed out, they expanded but didn't grasp that you need to train and retain talent. And having Monty Oum murdered didn't help. But that Golden ticket came with a massive caveat. They got their capital late in the game, and the more public they got, the more they knew their normally non PC shenanigans both on and off screen were going to cramp their ability to go MSM in the Commie Reset of the 2010's . They went woke, pissed off their old audience, and were left with their "air community" and all it took was one failed lawsuit with an english VA and the rest just kept spilling out of the skellington closet. All they had to do was not take that golden now matter how good it looked.
>>7797 >was Red vs. Blue as it first came really any good? Yeah of course or else people wouldnt be talking about it or revisiting old seasons. Everything up until the move to halo 3 was mindless dumb fun with every character being memorable in some fashion. except for Simmons.

Good.

>>10635 I ain't watchin' that shit, but thanks. I guess.
So is this shitty Gmod series dead for good? Or did they just end another season?
>>10635 Yeah, I knew they weren't going to kill a lesbian. She just fell in a bottomless ravine, just like the entire team RWBY and Jean, who killed Penny. The still aren't able to do good action scenes, the plot is still shit, they ruined Ironwood, they made Penny into a real girl, only to kill her 2 episodes later. Can't wait for Volume 9 to bitch further about this shit.
>>10765 Has any of characters really died besides the forgotten android?
>>10774 Hazel got killed in an explosion, Penny got killed by Jaune, Vine Zeki(had to look his name up the wiki) also got killed in an explosion, and Weiss' father got killed by Ironwood. Surprisingly they didn't kill Ironwood, but I doubt they are going to give him a redemption arc. The bad guys now have both artifacts, and Weiss' sister is the new Winter maiden. The show is still shit, only reason to watch it, is to see just how shit it is.

My problem stems from when the Fagguettes or Germany pushes their particular gay ass laws unto the member states, the fact that Greece is allowed to fuck everyone up financially, or when you have annoying little shits like Claude Juncker, Macron, or Merkel try and create an EU army despite being one VERY unpopular and two was promised since it's inception would never happen and for good reason. Also I don't particularly agree with that one crazy half Jewish half Japanese dude (Kalergi is his name, had to look it up ) that Europe should be forcefully homogenized into some bizarre knock off new Egyptian race because that's fucking insane and I by no means consider myself an Ethno-Nat either as a lean more towards Minarchist Libertarianism.

>>18580 >but can't remember why The answer is simple, and sadly for most kids loud noises == funny, so every time he creamed in a high pitched voice, that was "comedy". I don't have any science to back this up, so take it with a large pinch of salt, we do know that loud noises can startle people, so they are used in horror a lot(and they are called cheap scares as a result). Humor can come from the clever and unexpected punchline of a joke, but what if we can associate an unexpected thing with funny, so when the loud noise starts, the viewer gets startled a bit, which is unexpected and this triggers his laugh response? Of course this is just a theory, but it would explain why loud can be considered "funny", but just like with scare tactics, it's just a cheap laugh. Kids also believe that swear words == funny, which is part of the reason why AVGN was so popular, but at least he got creative with the swear words and you could also laugh at how absurd those games were, maybe this is why I still think his older videos are better than NC's older ones. t. watched both
>>18583 AVGN was funny because he was expressing what it was like to play video games. My favorite example is Spider-Man. It's not funny because it's Spider-Man, it's funny because Spider-Man is used as an excuse to express what it's like to play single player video games with a friend. Or the Ghostbusters episode. It's not funny because it's Ghostbusters. It's funny because it presents the experience of being baffled by licensed games that don't make any sense, and being burned over and over as you keep thinking that maybe this next game based on a great movie will actually be good. Rolfe long ago forgot what the actual appeal of his series was, which was his slight exaggeration of relatable experiences, not necessarily the actual critiques, and definitely not elaborate costumed setpieces that parody the games or movies. Either he forgot this, or never consciously realized this, or just the fat slobs he hired never understood it in the first place. Or the people they plagiarize their scripts from didn't realize it.
>>18583 >creamed in a high pitched voice What an unfortunate typo.
>>18591 Or fortunate, because it's accurate enough that it doesn't even look like a typo.
RWBY stopped being cute and inoffensive at V3. More or less everything super bad about the show started there (even though there were even earlier problems like the faunus and Jaune) A lot of the bad writing in the show really roots in how they never figured out how to transition from being a bunch of schoolgirls taking on mobsters and furry terrorists to wandering warriors taking on gurl Satan/Sauron and what I think is supposed to be Robo Hitler (Ironwood). They extended the plot/world way too much for their ability to show it. it's what gets you shit like Ironwood's men being supposedly some of the top huntsmen around being steamrolled by RWBY since they more or less made the protags some of the strongest forces alive but there was never a credible change so it falls apart. In comparison something like Hunter X Hunter does far better at showing the protags pushed to their limits to beat men like the the Spiders or Chimera Ants. Another problem is how the show has way too many characters without any signs of stopping yet at the same time they struggle to make Ruby and Co. relevant to the shadow war between Ozpin and Salem. When you look at just the protagonists alone you have a whooping 7 (RWBY, JNR, Oscar/Ozpin) and even more if you include Qrow. Looking at the latest arc, Oscarpin and Jaune with his team were really the stars of the show since they got key moments like confronting Ironwood or nuking Salem or talking with Hazel. Did we even need the Ace-Ops when we could've just had Winter and FNKI there? >>10492 >is a tumblrite who got triggered >unironically calling himself a schizoid and make himself sound interesting for being a reject/gamma >wouldn't be surprised if show apologist >>10627 Yang is as ghey as Korra was before Asami happened (so not really except the showrunners realized they can make shipper bucks). >>12264 They obviously knew about Vic's conduct at cons long before le accusations happened and did nothing about it. He just got chased out for his politics (being a Republican, being an open Christian). >>16634 All the good Scots migrated out. Leaving only the eternally butthurt.
Of course: No one pointed out the perhaps biggest problem of RWBY which is that it's ultimately a female centric power fantasy applied to a shonen world/plot. RWBY has all the markings of a female power fantasy story (DEMs galore, protags being easily adored, protagonists being reactive with having other namely male characters fixing stuff for them, enemies are either talked down or are ineffectual). This does not fit for a shonen or any other story made with male centric fantasies in mind.
>>18609 I think part of the problem is how the show's been presented as well. In the first three volumes, the episodes were shorter, so they tried to squeeze what they could into the time they had. Being a bunch of amateurs, they probably thought they didn't need to do too much world building (at least until they made World of Remnant but even then it felt like an afterthought). By Vol. 4, the show had become popular enough that they had the cash to change engines and extend the episode length. And with that, they got the ability to add all that exposition they lacked in the previous volumes but they were playing catch up and since the foundation was shit, the new stuff was ass too. On top of that, they don't know how to use the episode/volume length to their advantage, which is why you get Ruby and her cronies sitting around drinking tea or doing jack shit while Atlas is getting fucked by grimm.
>>18612 >ultimately a female centric power fantasy applied to a shonen world/plot. That's not necessarily true when Japan pumps out similar concepts yearly. Heck there's even western examples that are less serialized but still shares similar elements. The people behind Rwby aren't good writers outside of the wisecrack comedy of red vs blue. Made even worse when Monty was murdered.

>>7120 >>7104 >>7118 Some Jack from AH was fucking fat, ugly 17yos in cons. From Funhaus: >WB was pressuring them to produce more content for the algorithm, from 1 to 2 videos a day, which made Spoony, Joel and eventually Bruce leave. >Suits didn't give a promotion to Lawrence and also forced the channel to be more woke and PC because of complaints so he leaves. >Adam was sexting a catfish and cheating on his wife, but he took pictures in the workplace so they fired him. >They probably could've solved it as friends but apparently there were growing fisures in the group between Adam and the rest in the last years, especially with Lawrence and Rahul, also it is likely RT pressured the Willems to cancel Adam publicly. >Only the Willems are left from the original group, and RT is pressuring on them becoming more woke. >Bruce and Lawrence now have twitch channels and earn almost double of what they used to and sometimes they play together. >The Willems are slowly making strides on twitch preparing for when their contract ends. We could possibly see them reunited in Twitch but the fun of Inside Gaming/Funhaus was compressed videos of hilarity busy people could watch. I'm not planning on watching a 3 hour stream. If it's any consolation, at least Adam was smart for disappearing from the internet for almost a year now. Jack tried to come back with a twitch channel despite his accusations being actual crimes.
>>18675 Another issue of the Twitch format is that Bruce is actually a libtard, though he was still not above edgy jokes, but in the Youtube video format all we saw and he made was the comedy. In live streaming he can be as libtard and unfunny as he wants.
>>18676 Sorry for samefagging. But about the accusations, TL;DR: The guy from Achievement Hunter was sexting fans, some of them minors and even fucked them in conventions. Adam form Funhaus is the one who shoved a dildo up his ass and cheated on his wife with a catfish, but he never actually perved on a minor nor did he thought he was texting with a minor.
>>18672 So, history lesson: The first three volumes were created the way they were because that was the tool that the director wanted to use to make the show. And, the director wanted to use that tool because he was familiar with it, and it had uniform rigging for all the characters. The animators hated it, though, because it wasn't an industry standard tool, and thus didn't improve their resumes. The first three seasons were duct-taping together the director's cool-ass fight scenes (he had a few proteges, but they all left by season four). And the director died in the middle of the third season (his trophy wife insisted on owning cats despite him being allergic). On top of that, the writers are pretty inexperienced. While I believe that amateur writers can put on a good show: between the low quality needed for those first three seasons (because they had cool fight scenes) and the overall success of the show, the writers believe that they are better writers than they are. The show's success has left them on "Mount Stupid" of the Dunning-Kruger effect, and impedes them leaving.
>>18672 Sure the worldbuilding is bad. And a lot of it roots in the show's leftism. The whole Ironmeme arc reflects this. Both in that Ironwood didn't act like an Actual Existing Fascist (not cowing the SDC, not working harder to curb subversives be they Commies or BLM but furries) and nothing about Mantle holding under scrutiny (namely that somehow fixing walls was Ironwood's job and not a mayor or council). Even Ironwood being a "dictator" is lolworthy since: A. It's canon that Ozpin ruled as a god-king and forced the world to be woke (muh slavery, muh democracy) and made huntsmen (who are more or less above the law. It's also canon he still operates a global conspiracy that has no problem impacting countries around the world and has no noted checks on his power. Despite all that nobody complains about how he ruled and still rules from the shadows but just that he lied about the immortal witch who commands the eternal monsters and the protags demand to be in on the conspiracy and do his tactics (aka Leftist hypocrisy). B. Huntsmen are not accountable to anything outside of Ozpin's academies and are rootless. The plot is just a giant morality play shilling rainbow imperialism/woke globalism as noted on Twitter. >>18673 Name examples to the contrary that aren't just magical girl shit (which in many cases counts) or just stories that write women as men with tits/domineering cunts like Korra. Something like the OG Terminator can have a female protagonist since it tries to be believable on female behavior and how they need to guarded by men and has Sarah Connor be important from birthing John Connor (something that the endless sequels ignored since Cameron is ultimately just a rich gamma male who wants to be a woman), something like Charlie's Angels has one since it's over the top, and something like Battle Angel Alita has one from being a robot. RWBY follows many of the same rules as female centric stories. Even if you chalk it all up to bad writing that doesn't change that RWBY was made to begin with from Monty just wanting to make a non-copyright infringement Dead Fantasy. If anything, it shows that the show was doomed when it started trying to be more than that and cunts like Yang's VA became louder and RT's leftism became more in line with orthodoxy.
>>18699 >>18701 My biggest gripe with the whole IronHitler meme was that they wanted to do a "Hero's Downfall" as well as a "He's literally Hitler" story. Let's remind ourselves how Volume 7 started: >Ironwood gives them a warm welcome into his academy >He invites them in his private office and tells them his entire plan >He lets them keep the artifact and even tells them were his artifact is >He lets them use his advanced training facility and allows them to train with his best combat soldiers >He makes them official Hunters and Huntresses(something they were not, since they never finished school) >He is constantly polite and trusts them completely >All he asks is that they are honest with him, and keep secret thing a secret <Ruby decides to lie to him about the amount of wishes <She lies to him about what they learned about Salem/Oz <Yang and the Fury both tell Ironwood's secret plan to his political adversary <They never trust him and are shocked to discover that when he learns all that they did behind his back, that he would take away the artifact from them >Ironwood shoots Oscar Then the writers found out, that the audience sympathized to much to "Literally Hitler" so in Volume 8 they had him <Kill his political adversaries and anyone who opposed him <Threatened to bomb his city, jsut to get a robot <After Salem got incapacitated, after one of her henchmen turned good, they needed a villain so they used Ironwood <He does everything he can to stop Team RWBY from saving as many lives as possible, because he is evil? <Ends up getting one shot, by his trusted subordinate, Winter All I can say is that it didn't work.
>>18702 A lot of that is just down to how the showrunners have no ability to write a credible antagonist even when they aren't trying to portray enemies of their worldview. Both Salem and Cinder are shitty villains when the plot doesn't work in their favor. In Ironwood's case, he had the same problem as the First Order from Nu Star Wars where he was simultaneously standing in for "the elite" (who somehow aren't da heroes) who ruled all that matters yet at the same time was also a pathetic incel weak white boy. A key part of leftoidism in all versions is insisting that everyone who opposes you is beneath you yet they have power over you. Hence White Man is both bitter clinger incel and also le monopoly man. Ironwood is repeatedly shown to be a joke of a ruler who gets bitched at by RWBY's George Soros (Ozpin), Him even not only trusting Ozpin's posse to hold the lamp to themselves and telling about his motherland's one even though they would obviously not have Atlas' interests first reflects how big of a cuck he is. >Winter Winter was never good and was always just a cheap wish character (protags' cooler and stronger big sister who gets to slap her around). Her becoming more or less current year elite feminism is no surprise.
>>18703 > A key part of leftoidism in all versions is insisting that everyone who opposes you is beneath you yet they have power over you. Hence White Man is both bitter clinger incel and also le monopoly man. You know what's funny about this (not like, "ha ha" funny, but, I want to give myself a Glasgow smile funny). These people are always going on about Fascist and fighting Fascism. And, yet, here is a portion of a definition of Fascism: < Fascist societies rhetorically cast their enemies as "at the same time too strong and too weak." On the one hand, fascists play up the power of certain disfavored elites to encourage in their followers a sense of grievance and humiliation. On the other hand, fascist leaders point to the decadence of those elites as proof of their ultimate feebleness in the face of an overwhelming popular will.
>>18707 The big thing there is that, in the Fascist system of Socialism, big business was co-opted rather than cowed. For Conservatives, Fascism presented as a Socialism that didn't shake the boat too much, and left many rich and powerful interests rich and powerful. Except the Jews, but everyone hates the Jews. What IS the logical choice for big business and the old regime, when the choices are: < We are going to Guillotine you. > Shut up and do what we say and nothing will happen, unless you are a (((Jew))) or other untermensch.
I literally know fuck all about rwby but I always liked how this character looked.
>>18675 Also FH hired a tranny as one of the replacements.
Just spam anti-RWBY pics
>>18703 >A key part of leftoidism in all versions is insisting that everyone who opposes you is beneath you yet they have power over you. I've noticed that too. A lot. It makes for terrible fictional villains.
>>18854 Villains being too admirable/badass or not has been a problem for millenia on millenia ("Did anyone ever prefer Othello to Iago or Macbeth to his killer or even Luke to Vader?") but I don't doubt any global order has ever had such a problem with it as Current Year Globohomo. Back in the old days, progs were more willing to trick you into agreeing with them using ultimately better crafted propaganda than shit like RWBY like Casablanca or OG Star Wars or Mark Twain's book. Now they don't since either they want your submission over loyalty or are flexing or just acting out of eternal butthurt over getting shoved into a locker. Legit epics and war stories or even old school fantasy ala Tolkien were written under the assumption, even for progs like Elric of Melnibone's author, that "villains" like Sauron or Macbeth were misusing signs of excellence like bravery or loyalty to their own for foul or blasphemous ends. They needed to since it wouldn't be credible for them to be the threats they're supposed to be if they were just pathetic incel armies (just compare how Tolkien wrote Gollum compared to Saruman and Sauron, who were both great men led astray by misusing their abilities in defiance to Eru or putting themselves first ahead of him). Europeans praised Saladin while crusading against him with this also reflected in works like Song of Roland. It's only Disney-tier thinking which says that "agents of evil" must be totally devoid of virtues or excellence. See also "Nazis/Trump voters/Whites MUST be incels or else that shows Hitler did nothing wrong and the Jews were asking for it!' This addresses Adam Taurus and Ironwood. While Salem and Cinder are bad villains from different problems (being more or less girlbosses who twitter cunts and Hillary voters self-insert as and soylords want to be sodomized by, are characters among the wider trend of Leftoid writing appropriating the notion of salvation from a deeply Christian history and combining it with victim tiers to make it so that supervillains like Cinder and Emerald or even Hazel are still somehow either more eligible for redemption than someone like Ironwood from having vaginas/not being whyte and dying to prevent the protags from losing too hard).
>>18702 The hypocrisy is what pisses me off the most. Everyone gets buttmad at Ozpin for not telling them Salem can be killed, then in Vol. 7-8, they all go lying to Ironwood because he looked kinda scary in those electronic billboards and no one ever has a moment to realize they're doing the same shit. And then they act like Ironwood was just doomed to be evil, there was no other choice, it had to be this way. They ruined my boy and made the main cast so morally reprehensible that you can't root for them anymore. >>18817 She's got a good design both pre- and post-Vol. 3, but she's the worst character, bar none.
>>18860 >lying We went over it already they only had a problem with Ozpin enough to confront him over it from him not doing more to include them in his conspiracy (no one complained about Ozpin ruling an empire founded on worshipping him and Salem as deities or him running a global conspiracy, even Salem being immortal wasn't that big of a deal after all what with le war on Salem with muh hope). They like actual leftists are aligned with elites if not elites themselves and will always work to acquire power or at least be shielded from it. Ironwood (and Salem to a lesser level) is only really le villain from being an elite who doesn't follow Globohomo's mandates enough and/or elite conflict (see the whole "you're not uniting muh humanity right"). As that TAJackson20 twitter said RWBY's plot can be summed up as rainbow imperialism/Globohomo/globalism being attacked by patriarchy/le nationalism/white supremacy/muh capitalists (recall how Salem and Cinder both have backstories that more or less blame the patriarchy/Whitey for them being supervillains). Atlas' destruction obviously stands for both burning down White America/Europe/Western Civilization to make a more inclusive universe and also "regime change" as inflicted on a land like Libya. >Cinder Her design is bad outside of the Monty episodes and especially the one in that pic.
>>18861 >recall how Salem and Cinder both have backstories that more or less blame the patriarchy/Whitey for them being supervillains Cinder's backstory was that she was abused by a matriarchy, a racist one, sure, but Cinder wasn't black a fauna so they didn't mistreat her for that. A male, almost a father figure was the one who taught her how to defend herself and properly fight so that once she became an adult, she could leave her abusive adoptive mother and enroll in an academy. It's been some years, since I watched Volume 6, but from what I remember Cinder just wanted to revive her lover, so she went to the dragon of light, he told her to go away, then she went to the dark dragon and told him, that he was her first pick, then the light dragon came in and gave the dark dragon the redpill on women, so she was thrown in the pool of darkness. None of their backstories have the patriarchy/whitey as motivation for why they became villains.
>>18863 With Cinder, it's shown she comes from a destitute background and was brought in mostly as slave labor. From that lens, it could be interpreted the mother is treating her bad because she's poor and filthy IE eat the rich. Personally, I don't think the writers put any thought into it more than "obvious Cinderella reference" because that's her entire motif.
>>18864 Why they decided to go all in on the Cinderella motif with Cinder's backstory (outside of the dark twist ending) is a mystery. They have several characters that only embody the base aesthetic ideas of the characters they're meant to represent yet with Cinder they did the opposite. It's not like her backstory even adds to her character, she's still a poorly written villain who should've died several volumes ago.

Crossing over with /v/, any opinions on team RWBY's appearance in Cross Tag Battle?
>>20531 I heard some people disliked the inclusion because they thought an Arc-Sys crossover fighter should have had Guilty Gear instead of RWBY cameos.
>>20544 (sweet dubs) I can't help but think RWBY could be half-decent as a spectacle fighter in the vein of DMC or Revengeance.
>>20546 RWBY was made since Monty wanted to make his own Dead Fantasy. He had no actual ability in making a plot or making a setting. Hence him making the real bad decision to have a civil rights ninja catgirls subplot since he wanted Blake to have cat ears and making RWBY (if only as a team) already able to fight on par with elite huntsmen like Glynda. You need to understand that the "ruined Monty visionrino" is just a cope for a show that was never really good. It was always doomed to be an abomination that's what happens when reddit and tumblr and twitter lesbos (larp) with Nu She-Ra/Magical Girl/Avatar/Other Gurl Cartoon Of The Month/Yang/Maleficent avatars make an animu.

>>20567 Yeah, get could do fights, character and weapon designs and maybe a setting of what a scene could be. But the actual world building in character dynamics is sorely lacking. I gave up at the end of S3 and that seems to have been the right choice.
Season 1-2 weren't anything special it's just V3 was worse. V3 was what did: >Had Ruby nuke Cinder in battle and then avoid telling significant enough info for said power until some old beaner is there seasons later only for Ruby to not just nuke Cinder again in the latestseason >Introduced the Maidens who are obviously a shit excuse to draw out the plot and give lazy power-ups especially when the show doesn't give them anything more impressive offensively than bitches like Nora >made Jaune have more of a rivalry with Cinder than Ruby >had the catgirl black panthers/IRA side with supervillains who unleash eternal man hunting monsters on their own city >Had the opportunist criminal fight alongside Cinder instead of just letting Ironwood grab her and skipping town >had Penny die and Yang framed both of which don't really matter in the wider world >tournament arc with no significance in the wider world >Glynda and Ozpin being absent when Yang gets framed >Pyrrha charges in alone instead of calling for backup >make it obvious the show will have an overly large cast what with Team NIG never doing anything important in Atlas >World of Remnant tells us the bad setting (spoilers it reveals that RWBY is about how capitalism/Whites/White Men/Men are stopping Luxury Space Communism/Woke Primal Land from happening and that it's up to international killers who totally aren't elites to defeat the White Man). Mind you much of this was made even worse is later volumes like Ozpin having a nuke cane he never used before or Pyrrha's death's awkward treatment in the plot. The takeaway is that RWBY was never good was doomed to never be good and like Life is Strange is just another example of how the Left has stopped making non-shit propaganda insofar it's both badly written and exposes their reality.
You can tell how bad RWBY's setting is by how there too many kingdoms. Most of them can just be cities/districts in one kingdom under King Oz or whatever with the faunus subhumans from outside of it. It's babbies' first worldbuilding to not include more in your story than is needed. This is best reflected by how Atlas being destroyed didn't make it so RWBY is any closer to credibly beating Salem (Salem has the new Relic and doesn't need any of her ex minions anymore she can just use it to burn every major city/settlement down and Cinder can fend off Winter) and the whole arc was transparently a psy-op (regime change, Antifa, anti-White/Western, revolt against your bloodline and race to join Globohomo's warriors).
RWBY also has a bloated cast. We have two criminals with illusion/shapeshifting themes (ice cream girl and nigger thief), Ironwood's band of losers and Team NIGGA, all of Jaune's team with God Shota. You could can one or two of RWBY itself come to think of it, especially when Jaune and Ozcar keep hijacking the plot (killing robo girl and confronting Ironwood and getting Salem's minions to turn and nuking her army). Having large casts only work if the premise needs one. RWBY is not about globetrotting like HxH nor is it about politics between lands with one family caught in the middle.
>>20657 >You could can one or two of RWBY itself come to think of it I think the makers of Cross Tag arrived at the sae conclusion, since for the longest time only Ruby and Weiss were playable.
>>20657 The large cast wouldn't be a problem if there was a clear delineation between the more important characters and the ones who should be in the background. Ren is not a bad character but making his backstory and fight with the grimm that killed his parents the focus of a volume was a stupid thing to do since he's not really an important character. And if they didn't create new ones to be the partial focus of a volume only to then get shoved out of the way when the plot moves on (Ilia, Maria, Pietro), that would also help.
>>20665 Except Ruby herself isn't relevant once you ignore the silver eyes and her forced rivalry with bloating the plot. Jaune was always like this . She's just doing everything Ozpin wants or approves of. >>20667 No. Ruby doesn't need a large cast since it's not a video game nor did they bother to keep the setting open enough for it. In FMA we don't see other countries than Amestris and Xerxes since the story has nothing to do with them. In HxH the world is shown early enough as being far bigger than the island even before the Dark Continent is revealed. RWBY V4 happens with all the big players (Ozpin, Salem, Ironwood, Adam, Jacques, their minions) mostly revealed besides the gods (who shouldn't be in there either). Despite that we get a glorified way to stall out the plot post-Beacon with nothing really happening (not even killing Cinder since she survives) until the team's traveling with Ozpin who despite running a global conspiracy and helping Salem conquer the world they only start yelling when he didn't do enough to include them in his conspiracy. And from then onward they continue to do what Ozpin wants (even aiding in Atlas' destruction since it was the only country with any notable opposition to his conspiracy's societal engineering). Ren and the rest of Team SELFINSERT are more or less another full set of protagonists. Jaune has been bloating out the plot. Since his intro (complete with a shitty bullying subplot) that's happened. It's even worse with Oscar who has done more damage against Salem in Atlas than Ruby has. Part of what makes it so bad is that RWBY has no real relevance in the Salem and Oz War outside of being Ozpin's pawns. Ilia was there for the shitty Civil Rights Catgirl subplot which shouldn't have happened to begin with (Adam was never good). The Silver Eyes are a lazy way to make Ruby special and it's no surprise that they made a Beaner just for that. Also, considering how much Leftism traces back to Gnosticism and associated theologies/cults/movements/conspiracies you can be sure that the final will be "muh gods are mean" (neverending rage against the father).
>>20672 What do the silver eyes do again?
>>20674 They turn Grim into stone, so I guess theoretically they could also be used to turn Salem into stone, and that's why she hunts them down.
