I know the writing it's all over the place 2/3 parts of the time, the pacing can be awful at times as well (and the duration of some episodes is ridiculous), the animation can be pretty stiff when they aren't fighting (with plenty of clipping), some characters still need develoment and it's kinda like a sea of cliches.
Yet I liked it. The character designs are pretty great, their motifs are quite interesting, the world building is also intriguing as well, the action is great (Monty Oum, of course) and most of the time the ost is good (except the opening song, I can't fucking stand it).

And it seems that both /co/ & /u/ are united by this show lately(just like with Gunnerkrigg).

But anyways, let's talk about it. Specially the blu-ray is out and we have to wait for the next "season".

The guy who makes this show isn't actually Japanese is he? He's an American of japanese descent who is a MASSIVE weeaboo and decided to make the most cliché low-rent american-anime ever?

I found the first few episodes to be pretty rocky. So-so dialogue, stiff animation, etc etc, but the fight scenes later on are amazing. I agree with you on the ost as well. Except for the awful opening song, most of it is pretty impressive.

Hesitantly optimistic. I think it has the potential to be great

>> No. 219362
I think you're confusing it with "Where the Dead Go to Die".
Now that's some unwatchable shit.
You should also take in consideration that this is not only Monty Oum's first not-just-fighting animation, but also that the production team are just like 10 people. So yeah, they're trying their best despite their limitations.

I'm also quite cautious yet optimistic as well. The show is full of potential and I hope that Team RWBY improves a lot for the next part of the show.

It looks like on old video game cutscene.
I like it.

The 'rule' posted at the start of every /co/ thread sums up my feelings towards RWBY pretty well.

"It's okay to like it, it's not okay to tell us it's good."

I've never been a fan of rvb, but I'm hoping rwby follows its trajectory.
Basically unwatchable in the beginning -> pretty dang impressive animation wise by the end.

I've never heard of this thing before. Anyone care to explain it?
>> No. 219395
It's a fantasy series created by the people at Rooster Teeth about 4 girls at a training academy to be monster hunters/protectors of the realm. It's characterized by each character having a unique weapon that is usually a mix of melee + gun (e.g. giant scythe that turns into a long range sniper)

They just completed their first season now. The entire series is on roosterteeth.com if you want to watch it there.

I think I liked it for this reason. It's got this heavy nostalgia factor because it looks and feels like a JRPG I would have played over and over when I was 14. People whine about how cliche it is but I don't even care because the cliches give it this cheesy, sincere charm. They know it's cliche as fuck and they don't try to pretend it isn't or that it's ~subversive~. I think the characters are cute and the fight scenes are cool too so.

I was surprised to find that so many dudes watched it because it is totally a show meant for 14 year old girls and people who were 14 year old girls once in their lives, but in retrospect I really shouldn't be.

Heheh, and yesterday while I was reading this I was on a friend's house and he was playing Tales of Graces f. And it just strike on me...

That hack has never figured out how to stage a fight scene, how's it going to be great.

I'm always up for fight scenes, so by all means post some.

You seem upset. What's with the harsh words?
>> No. 219533
I remember there being some mockery on at least his earlier videos (like Haloid) for having fight scenes ripped straight from movies like The Matrix while still advertising "original" choreography. Haven't noticed that in RWBY though.

And yes it really is like a Tales game, ridiculous names for the plebotium and all.

With expectations low from the trailers and the zero budget, I'm surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this. I have a strong suspicion that it owes a lot to being able to go through all of the episodes at once; the four Jaune episodes don't feel like a dragged-out several week arc but instead a single decent saturday morning cartoon episode. I don't know if this is the right way or wrong way of looking at it.
>> No. 219633
Nah, just saying the guy's SO not that good.
>> No. 219635
I don't think he could plagiarize choreography this time since the way all the characters fight is pretty unique (i.e. using knockback from their weapons). It's pretty safe to say that he did the action in RWBY all on his own.
>> No. 219640
But yknow what, I guess it was inappropriate of me to come into the thread to just go out on the creator.
Sorry guys.

The first episode can offer you what you want as well.
