I’m VERY sure by now you guys have realized what kind of nut I am for RWBY.
……oh wait. hold on a sec here.
If you haven’t seen all the way until Volume 3, don’t read this blog article. It’s just a bunch of huge spoilers, my afterthoughts on it, and my biased opinion on the staff of Roosterteeth.
….you still reading? I assume you saw the end of Volume 3 then. Okay good.
…here we go.
So towards the end of Volume 3, a bunch of really sad things happen. The harder they fall, the more epic they are when they come back up. So just because my favorite character, Penny, is dead, that doesn’t mean her death will end JUST like that. I’m definitely sure the deaths of Penny and Pyrrha will not be in vain. Assuming this is a ten volume series, they were just characters that drove the plot forward, and it’s just the beginning of some crazy epic journey. Who knows, maybe they’ll come back. Maybe Penny will come back as Freckles (from RvB) :P
I sound a bit shallow on this, but studying scriptwriting, I know this is just the beginning of the ‘journey’ part of the story. And that was the last few minutes of the very last episode. So trust me when I say this is the tip of the iceberg, and something way worse is going to happen later. When team RWBY rendezvous, it’sgoing to be epic.
But I still feel sad for Penny. She was so cool. I’m very grateful for meeting these two lovely cosplayers who agreed with me to do this shoot. It’s not supposed to be a rude thing, but it’s just something I want to remember them by.
Oh, and this cute one:
(cosplayers unknown atm)
I am very sure you all know Monty left us, and the staff had to continue the series without his guidance. Assuming the series was animated mostly-chronologically, I can see the flaws of the first episode, but major change towards the last few episodes. I had my doubts, but knowing that they had such a great ability to adapt and improve, that has mostly disappeared. I’m not an animation expert, but if the Roosterteeth animation crew is reading this, I think you need to listen to the opinions of the fans who watch this, and also recruit a very talented storyboard artist whose job is to choreograph fight scenes with way better timing and angles for the sequences.
I don’t feel like explaining myself a lot, but Roosterteeth needs to get someone who knows how to design fun awesome swag. In America. I don’t want to get in a heated argument or anything, but I wish we had more artists in America doing this stuff. Japan is WAY ahead of this game and only Volume 1 is there. If you’re a Roosterteeth staff member, there’s a fat pool of artists in America who are dedicated to RWBY and you could try contacting us nobodies for a commission for awesome art. And make some RWBY headphones. Shit, that would be so awesome.
And if you think you’re qualified to help Roosterteeth out as an artist, I highly encourage you to submit your portfolio to them ^_^
Anyways, Penny’s dead, but I’m not that sad about it anymore. It’s what made this story finally have a definite plot for the main character, and now Ruby has a purpose for her life. Congrats, I better see some awesome shit in Volume 4.
