Awfully hard to read subtext that isn't there, right guys?
subtexts there alright, just need a government issued microscope for it lmao
I've noticed that a lot of things in RWBY are stolen or at least heavily inspired from BNHA (but BNHA is leagues and leagues better written than RWBY has been and ever will be, with the added benefit it doesn't horrifically butcher it's themes)
But Yang's new grenades remind me of Bakugou, or how Mercury's dad could steal Semblances like AFO, or the concept of Semblances (Quirks) in general. I won't be surprised when they make an Eraserhead character who can erase Semblances.
i think some of the examples here are just too vague or very common in anime / anime derivatives to be “copying” bnha ; yang & bakugo’s explosives are kind of similar but not really & when it comes to powers like a semblance, it’s common that there would be a countersemblance to take it away or put it out of commission.
but a very clear cut example of them copying [oh i’m sorry, “paying homage”] was the v7 opening that was just so disjointed & not fitting when compared to the rest of the show. from the animation to the poppy song that isn’t rwby’s style at all, it just felt weird & i didn’t like it.
funny you should mention erasing semblances bc there is a dude in after the fall who can do that. now that the “no two semblances the same” rule has been thrown out bc of the carmine & glynda same semblance, i wonder if they’ll bring in someone with that semblance.
When you convince you friend to write a D&D character/npc based on Ironwood bc he's your favourite and you keep her posted on what is going on with him and her reaction is: "I am so sorry they are ruining his character but don't worry, I have plans for him in the campaign" and you can tell that a person who has not even watched half as much rwby as yourself (and isn't even as invested as you though lord knows why you still watch the show) is gonna do a better job than rt
i know absolutely fuck all abt d&d but god speed soldier, may your ironwood character be mega sexy & get the love he deserves ♥
I feel it would have been better if Robyn had turned out to be an agent of Salem placed to sow discord in Mantle/Atlas and lower peoples trust in James and divide them and the happy huntresses was all just a cover and even for a touch of irony lies about her Semblance. With how badly she helped screw things up it would have been better received if it was revealed it was all intentional and she is revealed as a villain rather than being treated like an hero.
honestly i can fucks with evil / salem agent robyn owo
tie that in with actually has a truth semblance james ironwood bc it’s thematically apt & mega sexy for him & mamma mia that’s a spici plotline
I don't think the matter of Ruby abandoning Yang after her arm cut off is given enough attention. She basically leaves because the plot required her to and doesn't make any effort to stay behind or argue and aid her sister in her time of need. We know Weiss was coerced to leave by Jacques and Blake did so under the impression it would be safer for them all. Yang gave so much after Summer died and Raven left, being a substitute parent with Tai but Ruby leaves far too quickly regardless of reason.
i do understand why ruby left, even if it was just the plot being like okay they need to split up so ruby you go now, but the way she left will always leave a sour taste in my mouth. she says nothing to either yang or taiyang, both of which suffer abandonment issues because of past trauma tied to raven & this is legitimately never addressed outside of yang attempting to do the same thing again to tai like. am i meant to be on their side for this? i felt sad for yang when ruby did it to her & then heartbroken for my husband that his ungrateful ass kids just bounced out without a word. smdh.
So Qrow.... punches Oz (as well as Oscar) in the face after learning something he doesn't like (despite the fact that he JUST witnessed Ozma's abuse, so yeah, punch the abuse victim in the face immediately, real healthy dynamic there 🙄), gets his new friend Clover killed (someone he barely knew), and somehow blames yet another friend for it (because all the cool kids are blaming Ironwood I guess). Yikes, Qrow really is a bad friend. Keep him away from Tai, I'd hate to see what he'd do to him.
i really love qrow but damn does he make it hard to vibe with some of his actions, especially when it’s him essentially punching down on people who had it worse off than him even with his woe is me, electric guitar PAIN background. half the bullshit that happens to him he brings it on himself or we don’t know that it’s exclusively his semblance because the show never gave it a tell. all we have is qrow’s unreliable word to go on.
If they wanted to sell bmblb to us, they should've gotten Blake and Yang to be involved in each other's arcs. As it stands they're only getting together out of guilt and trauma by bonding over Adam's death. Which is a not a healthy romance...
basically. trying to patch it over now with them killing adam & then not a week later going out to clubs to party doesn’t endear me to this relationship & make me think that it’s healthy or that they’re actually good for each other like. i’m not saying blake needs to be a weeping mess but i would’ve liked more than a barely 1 minute scene where they don’t even mention adam by name to show how they’re moving on with each other. i want them to have the raw conversations they needed to, i want yang to talk about how blake hurt her by running off without a word, i want blake to voice how she felt like she was only ever a danger to yang & she thought she was doing the right thing. i want there to be some meat to this relationship beyond uwu this is the sunny blonde / emo dark hair pair up that has been every other white sapphic couple since the late 2000s.
& no amount of these scenes change how it was sun / taiyang, weiss & ruby that helped helped blake & yang respectively in their separated arcs & even when they were reunited, we went from them being awkward & snappy at each other to straight “we’re protecting each other” nauseating lifetime movie line with no build up. no bridging between them. no actual conversation !!
maybe it got cut for time or it was an animation mistake : ))))
The writers already treat the existing mains with much disrespect and neglect. Imagine possible future returns like SSSN or CFVY? In a way them being written out is almost a blessing. I say almost cause the canon books don't fare any better tbh.
if we ever get to vacuo, we’ll probably see them then so be prepared for even more bullshit lmao
A staLKER a person who harasses or persecutes someone with unwanted and obsessive attention SUN IS not a stalker Adam was
So I know 2020 has been an awful year and time is an illusion but has it dawned on anyone else we are officially years into the new century?
it’s so wild that there are now adults that were born after 2000
i feel old bye ✌
It’s really weird how Cinder got demoted in intelligence because in the first 3 volumes she was patient, careful, clever, and sneaky. She had help but was also good at adapting at a moments notice and blending in which is why her plan was pulled off perfectly. But after getting powers it’s like she doesn’t know how to get anything done like what happened Cinder?
honestly there could be a really interesting storyline in that this is her manically grasping for power after she was so unceremoniously knocked off of her pedestal by a snot nosed teenager & the outbursts of anger are symptomatic of her trauma & grasping, but that’s just a headcanon for what miniscule things we’re given in canon.
RT is like a multinational corporation that tries to look like a family owned small store.
they try to convince you so hard that they’re your best friend that it’s the fucking tagline of their twitter i hate it here, fucking
Yo rugrats in paris is exactly what I need to mess me up. I Want A Mom That Will Last Forever? Fuck me up Nickelodeon that's the stuff
that song hurts even more than usual with recent developments in my life & i can’t listen to it anymore rip, but it really is such a good song for a great movie
So I was listening to Vergil's new theme "Bury the Light" from the DMC 5 Special edition and felt with some minor tweaking that it could really go well with Adam imo.
all i know abt dmc is that the dudes are very sexy & whatever corn tells me but imma give it a listen uwu, could always use more things for adam ♥
owl, you’re not watching volume eight? i mean GOOD FOR YOU. but we’ll miss you! will you still be on this blog and focusing on other rwby things or?
i’ll still be on this blog !! ♥ i’ll probably get info from what’s happening through the discord servers & give my opinion / watch some things if it needs to be cleared up, but yeah. i’m not ready to subject myself to another volume of a disabled man with actual ptsd being demonized for four pretty young white girls who don’t know how to win a war & yet probably still will due to power of friendship bullshit no jutsu lmao.
Other anon is just straight up wrong about Ironwood. You can find the commentary on Youtube and in it clear as day is "And then of course Ironwood now loosing another part of his humanity get it" straight from the writers mouth. Like sorry rwby is ableist but yeah rwby is ableist.
wbk that the fndm will try & simp for their two able bodied writers perpetuating even more ableist tropes, under the guise of paying homage to his allusion like that’s ever mattered before, rather than listen to disabled people who are rightfully upset. ♥
Hopes for character deaths in Volume 8? :3c
- james so he can be free & honestly, i don’t trust them handling his descent into bad guy arc OR any possible redemption arc so fuck it, just free him ♥
- nora so the good guys feel a loss & she’s the most expendable / unlikable imo
- cinder????? i don’t see what else she has to bring to the table & there are now two other contestants who are kept in line easier to be the maiden
- someone in the happy huntresses. my money’s on joanna, they won’t kill their only trans rep & we’ve already had the fake out with fiona
- i don’t want her to die but i think they will kill winter this vol or at least someone in the schnee family who isn’t jacques. so either winter or willow. i don’t think they’d kill whitley bc he’s just a kid
we fell in love in october, taiyang & summer w/ ruby centric.
they both knew what was waiting for them in the bathroom, whether summer would come out a ball of pure, exuberant energy or a little more downcast yet saying they could try again. her past few days of vomiting up her breakfast (including once on qrow’s cloak, she’d apologised profusely but the look on his face still said you’re dead to me for all of five minutes) leant towards the first but … well, you never knew.
