^RWBY is a show. I highly recommend you to not watch it

Swag Wagon Sep 19, 2022 11:14PM

^ Or watch the first 3 seasons and have someone else just describe the rest of the show to you

^ imo while volumes 4-5 were god-awful, 6-8 are fine, speaking as someone who started watching after vol. 7.

^6 was ok until the last 4-5 episodes and the only good thing about 7 was Ironwood. 8 was just shit, Ren and Watts call-outs were nice but thats really it

6 and 7 are among the best the series has. I'd only put 3 above them but they're far above 1 and 2. The last episodes in 6 are amazing (also 6-6 is the best episode in the show) and 7 has some of the best tension in the series (hell, the only reason Ironwood is even good is because of that tension. So if he's good so are RWBY+, the Ace Ops, Watts&co, and the Happy Huntresses)

And while 8 is easily the worst season in the series yet it does still have more good than that (the Emerald, Cinder, and Nora stuff).

It's always funny when as soon as anything RWBY shows up here, the Hatedom has this compulsatory need to type out how their opinions are supposedly facts. They know nothing about writing or animation, but boy do they have opinions about it :D
Maybe let a person watch it if they want and form their own opinions instead of trying to herd them into your flock.

My take is that RWBY was never good in the traditional sense, but was a lot of fun as an amateur project. The first season was so low budget the background characters were just black silhouettes, but there was a lot of passion behind the creative fight choreography. Then the creator unfortunately passed away as the series started taking itself more seriously, so it lost both the charm in the fight scenes and in its amateur but passionate vibe.

I haven't properly watched the show since volume 4 but I've been following Blake and Yang's relationship because I've been irrationally obsessed with them since 2014. They're just the quintessential light/dark couple to me.

I finally decided to watch the show the last week and, oh ho ho, how I regret not watching it soone. I really enjoyed, and watched it 2 more times, planing to do it again soon. Yes, it has some really good and some bad parts like any show/anime, but overall is a great series, and I love the characters, event the bad ones-

And I'm getting tired of anyone voicing valid criticism being just dismissed as being part of the "hatedom," but y'know, turn about is fair play I guess.

I won't lie that since RWBY is a massive show it will draw a lot of unwarranted hate just from shear volume, but there are still people who like the show who don't like the direction it's going in. I would say that if you like the show you shouldn't be bothered by whatever anyone else says about it, but I guess it would be difficult with how much discourse there is.

I remember when RWBY first started and one of my first thoughts was that the animation was so terrible and blocky I didn't get my hopes up but after episode 2 I got used to it and everything fit smoothly. I love nearly everything about it, so much that I can't even really think about what I DON’T like. However, I do think that I'm fortunate to have stopped watching at volume 3 episode 7 (mainly because I was waiting for an update then decided to wait longer for more episodes) before everything just turns to shit. I can't make a judgment because I haven't watched anything since V3E7 and I can say that I hear more hate than love after V3. Personally, I think a lot of backlash was made because of the death of a fan fav, Monty's death and how it was no longer him who was making the story, and a change of story shortly after (it gets more dark/real). I had so much negative views on RWBY after V4 without watching it until a friend I had forced to watch RWBY told me he loved it, even the seasons and episodes after Monty's death. Although there is a significant fall of fights and more dialog, he told me he really enjoyed the insights and trauma everyone had to dealt with... In great lengths.

Overall, it's a great show to watch but to each their own.

Oh. And I mainly followed RWBY afterwards because I was waiting for the bumbleby/white rose ship to become canon.
