So we've seen how the series has nose-dived. But even Season 1 & 2 had issues.

Assuming you had the money & the perfect animators and script writers- how would you re-tell the story better?

Would you address plot-holes? Would there be stuff you'd change even though they it was done well?

Posting my 2 cents on how to unfuck RWBY

1. Don't let Monty marry Sheena

2. No seriously, do not let Monty marry Sheena

3. I'm not fucking around here boi, if they marry Monty is dead

4. Have Monty continue to head the project

5. never have nigiri be casted no matter what kind of "business" deals they have beforehand

6. Don't break Cinder's character post volume 3 (Thusly Cinder won't be such a shitty character)

7. Keep RT fucking far away from RWBY. They clearly just want RvB shilling

8. Actually be fucking consistent with certain characters and actually follow up on their storylines rather than just being a fucking tease (LOOKING AT YOU ADAM YOU FUCKING VERGIL CLONE)

9. Have the story mainly focus on Ruby, not just side characters or just go beyond the "rule of 4ths."

10. Like all enjoyable stories, give us an actual focus on stakes rather than ripping off Soul Eater, because even that had something to fear and a villain to look forward to

RT's new show, toted as "two parts samurai jack" one part something else.

Seems more like Wonder of Yonder with decent student animation. Definitely not action with how fast the "jokes" come. Unless the joke was they built it up like an action show and it wasn't

I have a sneaking suspicion this will be the last time we talk about this show.

Camp Camp is better if you want animated comedy from them. This is OK for a kids show, but even this is beneath their usual audience. I'd have thought. Just seems odd having this along side Barbra's sex chat show and Michael screaming fuck every other minute.

Was it ever stated why RT fired this guy or didn't renew his contract? I get why Shane Newville had to go, but, I mean, those two guys could make full fights by themelves in a few weeks while RT's warehouse full of animators can barely manage 2 fight scenes in 12 months. It's hilarious to see the fandom damage control about how it's just so hard to animate fights with dozens of animators over a period of months in light of this fact.

Is it too early for a speculation thread? Is someone archiving the old speculation/discussion threads?


IIRC, Shane claims he was fired unjustly for wanting to keep Monty's vision alive, while RT used weasel words to say he was a tard who idolized Monty to the point he wanted to be him.

There may be some truth to the latter. Shane's expose put no wrong-doing on Sheena (which correlates with some staff saying Shane wanted to bang her), and he had his name in the title of some Megaman X fight video on Machinma. Not the description, the title (matches with ego).

I'm still on the "everyone was shit" hypothesis.

ded35b No.36415


I meant Dillon Gu. I get why RT fired Shane. Right or wrong, he aired dirty laundry, which never ends up well for the individual.

But, yeah, from Shane's own memo it was obvious he had the hots for Monty's widow. He was also blind to the rather obvious ploy she had of getting credited as a creator to qualify for royalties.

My experience with these kinds of things is that everything that makes sense probably actually happened and the parts that don't make sense are trying to sell a narrative. The same shit happened with this site when Hotwheels and Josh Moon had their falling out. I think Hotwheels released his memo first, which made sense in some places and others not then in Josh's memo made sense in the places Hotwheels glossed over. In the end both were right about certain things but both were also autistic drama queens.

In the end, though, many or most of Shane's concerns were valid: they've abandoned Monty's vision and totally watered down the show. That's be okay if it improved in other ways but it really hasn't except in ways you'd expect any project to improve simply by throwing a lot of people at it, like backgrounds and incidental animation. And I'm probably being generous with that.

No reason you can't make a thread for it now. It'll make the board a little more active.

Alternatively we could wait when the first trailer for the new season drops. We've never waited before.

This is to discuss RT as a company. Who they are, where they are likely to go, what sort of people work for them, and what the companies goals are.

RT is owned by Otter Media (who also own Crunchyroll. Strange that was never disclosed by either party).

Otter Media is owned by AT&T and some investor & businessman called "Peter Chernin".

Peter sits on the board at Twitter, owns majority stake in "Barstool Sports" (a group not afraid to be left-leaning and accusing people of being neo-nazis)- gave over $100,000 to the Democrats, and hosted Obama in his home for a fundraiser, and a producer of the new Planet of the Apes films.

Literally so much about RT makes sense.

Lets not forget that RT is in the heart of Austin- and it shows. Most of their staff is quite left leaning (with a few people that come across as so relaxed- maybe they're keeping their mouths shut or just don't care). They even promoted some game at RTX that was basically AntiFa simulator (RIOT: Civil Unrest IIRC), and Yang's VA has gone on public record & made it clear at conventions she believes the "pussy grabbing" mudslinging.

I disavow and condemn any post encouraging harassment, doxxing, or any actions deemed illegal in the USA.

If you see posts violating the rules of the board and law of the US- please report it.

Embedded video is not an official RT upload, and is only related to show how Burnie interacts with others. (former Chief executive officer, current chief creative officer- used to be the company boss, now he's the creative team's boss)

Nothing's really been shown. There's a 3D mecha anime with a hella diverse cast, and they're also bringing out what seems to be a western. They've shown two trailers for the mecha afaik, but the western thing seems more interesting to me.

Though, thematically, Blake and Yang's personalities compliment each other. Yang is bold and broad, while Blake is quiet and reserved.

It's like how Whiterose works. Weiss is mature, and Ruby is… not.

The reason the phrase "opposites attract" applies to people is because the contradicting personalities balance each other out.

I have a strong feeling Rooster Teeth is pushing for the DLC for RWBY characters and probably have "per dlc purchase" cut for them. Not to mention they probably are going to use the purchases to find out which character is most marketable. Bullshit all around.

Welcome to /rwby/'s first ever CYOA/Quest thread!

In this adventure you all will be guiding the actions of a character named Verdant Octavius, rich heir to a Dusk merchant who has ties with SDC (Schnee Dust Company)! This is Verdant's first year and his team/origin have already been decided in the meta thread for this CYOA, but that doesn't mean you can't join in despite not participated. Though I'd recommend that you check the thread out to get an idea of what's going on here.

The adventure will begin at the same time Ruby Rose is starting her first year at Beacon and will follow the shows plot to a limited extent. There will be twists and turns in the path ahead, as well as romance, friendship, and heartbreak.

The meta thread can be found here:



Part #1- https://archive.is/Jo4mb

Part #2- https://archive.is/RBx5k

How will Verdant's actions be decided you may ask? Through democracy of course!

Everyone gets to choose from one of the many options that will be presented throughout the adventure and the option with the most approval shall be Verdant's action.

From this thread forward, you guys will have the option to write in your own dialogue for Verdant. This is certain to make things interesting.

But how will combat be solved? In combat you will be presented with several options and the one with the most approval shall also be Verdant's action. Some actions can turn the tide of a fight while others will miss, or even cause you great pain in your immediate future.

Will there be waifu? Of course there will be!

Pretty much any female in this CYOA will be open to romance, or even befriended depending upon your actions. Don't expect to get intoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Depends on what you like, really. The novel takes an extremely tropey approach to the characters. Jaune, for example, is basically nothing like he is in the OG show. It's difficult to explain, but all the characters seem like uncanny imitations. Like your mom comes into your room but really it's someone else wearing her skin.

Actually kind of hyped for RWBY Babies-esque shenanigans. Even if the timing is terrible since the show is "mature" now.

Also- welcome back and thank you!!

I think many of us want to stop supporting YT more than RT at this point.

They put RWBY in a nutshell by putting Ruby in a trashcan.

Welp after a season of meh, the trash heap that is RWBY Chibi Season 3 is up.

I am somewhat impressed, I didn't think it was possible to put even less effort in to this as I assumed they weren't even trying before. Apparently yes, it can in fact get worse and did.

RWBY Chibi is, in a nutshell, the concession by Rooster Teeth that everything that was good about RWBY died with Monty. It is essentially stuck where Monty left the show.

>Yellow will forever be the only good RWBY related Rooster Teeth made

It gave off a much different vibe than what we got in the actual show

From the Red Trailer alone, I would've wanted a Samurai Jack kind of thing where Ruby is just traveling around fighting Grimm or something. Everyone else can be the characters she meets along the way.

This would've been a million times better. A fight each episode could happen without necessitating a million years of lead-up and exposition. Ruby could remain a mysterious character with a subtle personality like in her trailer. Maybe a mix between SJ and Mushishi would have been a perfect formula for a show like RWBY… then again that would require a lot of restraint when it comes to writing.

It would be amazing if they had kept it as close as possible to the trailers (or Dead Fantasy).

Short videos focused on action scenes with little to no talking and just have the story implied through small subtle details in them, leaving the door open for lots of fan speculation, looking for clues, and putting together the story.

The trailers did great at that, look how much they told you about each character and their background in a couple of minutes compared to how much we get to know about them in the series itself with them talking non-stop.

I think Monty should have played to his strengths in that regard, but Monty had a story he wanted to tell. The world has potential here and there, and how Salem could have manipulated nations could have been fascinating.

Assuming it was executed well, the cliches still hold it back.

Monsters that prey on negative emotion, and they look like an animal, but…

Ancient mcguffins to find a'la RPG quest.

Ancient Evil, and the only person who knows how to stop it asks the protag(s) for help.

But if it was executed well enough, you could sell almost anything. As long as it's interesting and you're made to care about the characters.

>Monty had a story he wanted to tell.

It's quite clear that he didn't. What you mean is that he had some setpieces and concepts he wanted to work with, and that's it. The guy clearly knew nothing about what makes a story good, or even well written. If he did, he wouldn't have hired a hack and an intern as lead writers for his show. Looking at S1 and S2, there's nothing there that really shows Monty had concrete ideas about what the general goal of each season would be and how the characters interacted with eachother (reminder that Blake & Ruby and Yang & Weiss have basically never spoken). RWBY is just a collected mess of things that seemed cool in his mind and could have been cool if anything was handled competently. And Monty IS a competent guy, when it comes to animating at least. The Red trailer was perfect (Ruby shows more personality in the 3 minutes of fighting she does in the trailer than she does in the rest of the show), so what's the difference between the trailers and the show from a production standpoint? The Dynamic Duo Miles and Kerry (who are incapable of writing themselves out of a paper bag) weren't present to ruin the red trailer.

Anyway, the samurai Jack approach would have been the best way to handle things. The writers wouldn't have had to bother with some large epic overarching story (something they're trying to do now and fucking up at it right as we speak). They would have been able to reconcile the large amount of characters with the appropriate screentime and they wouldn't have had to worry about Ruby herself developing as a character (something Monty didn't want from the get-go: he said she had to remain static). They could have instead focussed on interesting magical environments, and cool fights that need little context.

>Monsters that prey on negative emotion

I don't really think this is a cliche, and it could have been pretty cool if it had been done correctly. Having controlling your emotions be part of huntsman training would be interesting, and seeing characters having to hold back their emotions even though one of their friends just died while they're fighting grimm wouldPost too long.
