    I don't know, that shocked look on Pyrrah's face is like Ozpin just asked her: "Pyrrah, do have a way of contacting your dance partner? The one in the white dress. Ever since I met her at the dance, I knew she was special and we need a Gurdian." So, it could be Jaune, beacuse Maidens choose themselves; and Jaune chose to dress himself as a maiden.. Also Jaune stated that he grew up with 7 sisters. that's more Snow White that Weiss Schnee. So, that beggs the question "What is your favorite Fairy Tale?" and also... Plot Twist!

    Adding on to what TakenMemory said, the previous volumes had way fewer fights. There has been at least one fight in every chapter, often 2, this volume, and they have all been really complex. That is really impressive and difficult to do. They are doing really well! People need to be more supportive of this wonderful show which is has never stopped moving forwards!!

    You guys are complaining about the work these guys are doing, that they were debating on shutting down might I add, and yet you're still coming back every week like the rest of us. Criticism is fine, but outright bashing the hard work that this team is doing without their core member is just wrong. At least they're trying to do something good. At least they're succeeding in doing something good! Let's see you do all of the work they're doing and make something better than they are putting out.


    Good Job Rooster Teeth, continue doing the amazing job that you are doing!

    This fight really could go either way because on one hand Monty Confirmed that Yang has difficulty with fighters who specialize in kicks(KS for kick specialists from now on) but on the other the ONLY fighting style Yang has not won against was Neo's because her style is

    all about deflection and using the opponents strength against them and

    barely using any strikes of her own other than for finishers. In the

    yellow trailer she does have a bit of trouble against Melanie for a few

    seconds being forced to block and dodge but quickly adapts to her style

    and beats her meaning she has at least decent training in covering her

    own weakness against KS and is battle smart enough to be able to get

    them off guard and use KS easily disruptable balance against them and to

    be completely honest if you've got one foot in the air you are pretty

    much FUCKED if your opponent grabs your leg

    Things we know for sure about both fighters:

    Yang:

    Very high base strength

    Pretty good base durability

    Her semblance makes her entire body stronger by unknown proportions when hit

    Will try to completely destroy you for fucking with her hair

    Has at least 2 different ammunition types for Ember Celica: Explosive, and long range

    Mercury:

    Quick

    Is a killer

    Has only 1 known type of ammo for his boots: Some kind of high impact or force ammunition

    Semblance is Unknown, which is basically an Ex Machina waiting to happen.

    Ive been up for way to long and its stupid early in the morning. If I missed anything important or relevant then please informarrow-10x10.png me

    I really hope you guys from rooster teeth are reading the comment section. Guys, I know you are trying to make a Monty Oum worthy series but the fight sequences are just... one can see the ones choreographed by Monty and the ones than are not. The battle of mercury against the teammates of velvet is so well choreographed and timed, but the jade part, a sequences with in a sequence was just... boring. The same with the fight of that neon girl and Yang and the other with Weiss and the trumpet guy. Seriously I think you need a better choreographer. Do it for Monty's legacy and the fans

      I love the story. I love the dialogue. I couldn't agree more about the choreography being lackluster. I wish I was better at articulating what about the fights is so disappointing. A few thoughts: 1) The camera seems to be closer this season. Its also a shaky cam, so we can't really appreciate the one on one, hand to hand fights. I appreciate artistically focusing tight on the flash of a weapon, or the place that the weapon strikes are happening, but I enjoyed the older style that let us see more. 2) There also seem to be less dramatic, bad ass pauses. I'm thinking back to the trailer when weiss loads her sword with dust, stopping for a moment to stare at the suit of armor, or ruby taking a moment to smile and load crescent rose with high impact ammo, or Yang reloading her gauntlets in such an amazing way.

      The fact that both of you have the gall to complain and nitpick infuriates me. if you dont like it, stop watching and go make your own. Monty was literally their best animator and for him to die so suddenly broke the hearts of everyone there. They could have easily say they couldn't continue without him and cancelled the series but no. They're doing their fucking best with this volume even after losing a crucial member so suddenly, so it is completely understandable if shit isn't as flashy or of equal quality. but in my honest opinion, they're doing a pretty fucking good job considering.

    • Deployed FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Couldn't agree with you more, The_Man79. Week after week we see this same type of comment. There is such a huge misunderstanding on 3D fight animation and the complexities of choreography that the obnoxious, ignorant, brutality of these types of comments is really just bewildering.


      To be clear, the people that are voting these negative comments down, the people like The_Man79, they're not saying there is nothing wrong with the fight scenes, nor are they saying that the "issues" that are are unimportant. I can guarantee you that there is no one at Rooster Teeth, especially the animation team that is putting these scenes out and thinking "perfect, flawless, no one can do any better". These are artists. Every artist of every craft has one common trait, and that is self improvement. Even if the fight scenes were to the insanely high standard that Monty set, they would still look at every scene they put out and scrutinise every last angle of movement.


      Here's the issue I, and I assume many other people have, with these negative comments. Other than the obvious 'not constructive' issue, and that's the notion that because these scenes aren't to Monty's standard that RT simply shouldn't bother. That is idiocy at its prime. If Monty worked that way, he would never had released anything. Ever. Because every artist looks at their work and see imperfection.


      People that do choreography (or anything, for that matter) don't get better by being refused opportunity. The fact that every fight scene so far has been a group fight dynamic, which is such a difficult skill that the five-six figure salary choreographers that work in Hollywood and the Video Game industries can't get it right most of the time, to judge the mostly self-taught and self-reliant animators at RT is just plain vile. As well as the proposition that there are "better" choreographers just sitting around. It's a very niche skill.


      As far as Monty's legacy, Monty hired most of these people. He chose them. He advised them. He was the one that allowed Shane to show his abilities by letting him animate the Pyrrha vs Mercury fight in Volume 2, and it was his choice to only do the team CFVY fight at the end of Volume 2 and let the rest of his animation team handle the rest of the fights in that sequence. Hearing his excitement and pride at what some of them produced when listening to the commentary leads me to one very important conclusion to this "issue".


      None of the animators are disrespecting Monty's legacy, comments like your's however, are. Monty wasn't stupid enough to condemn people for not being as good as he, so why can't you share his trust in these people and let them grow?

    I love everyone's different walking styles at the end - Ironwood's straight-backed and formal, Qrow's kind of bent forward a bit, looking around, like he's wary of something, kind of reminds me of a lone dog scavenging at night, and Ozpin is just sort of walking like he's confident enough to know exactly where he's going and not need a fancy walk.

      not really, think about the trailer fight with the twins she went fine against them. the reason Neo was able to beat her was she shut down Yangs attacks and used minimum energy in return to take her out, thus making her semblance useless.

    • HioshiJoshJa

      that is not true... she is not a kick boxer... but she is a brawler... she has beaten almost anyone who has kicked at her... by kicking them... yang.... being weak to kicking was a false assumption

  • Agent_Xiro

    I think Mercury will maybe lose this, not because of skill, but because of Cinder's plan. I just think she wanted them to get far enough in the tournament with a few of the combatants. I don't much proof, but I don't think she gains much by showing how capable one of her faction is.

    • Gamerguy0012 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      I've been wondering about that for a while but I just had another theory. What if they are in fact trying to win, but by showing as little of their strength as possible by delegating the majority of the fighting to Mercury thus far (the crowd couldn't really get a good look at Coco and Emerald's fight in the forest so her abilities weren't as obvious to the public as Mercury's). The reason they want to win is because at the awards ceremony they will be able to get close enough to the heads of the schools who will be presenting the awards and then try to assassinate them there, crippling two of the huntsmen academies.

    Seriously people, Neo is not Pyrrha. Their fighting styles are too different.

    • KyleJohnston

      1 year ago

      But, it shows in episode 4 I believe, when Coco and Yatsuhashi were against Merc and Emerald: Yatsuhashi walked up behind Coco in the forest, but at the same time got knocked out of the arena. Unless Neo somehow snuck into the fight, I believe Emerald can change forms with people she is familar with, which would imply that Emerald is not Pyrrha, but she can take her form. Maybe Emerald locked up Pyrrha somewhere, or maybe I'm just missing some major evidence.

  • JaseAlex FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    1 year ago

    Each team that has won in the previouse rounds has been wittled down to 2 competitors that have won in both a team battle and a doubles battle. Only one of the doubles round winners is allowed to compete in the singles tournement. The other teams that have lost and winning team members that were not chosen by their team to move on, are exempt from competeing in the singles round. To put it another way, there will only be one representative from each team that has won up to this point. So, Weiss was not chosen and is out; Emerald was not chosen and is out, even though they were on the winning teams last round. There can only be one.


    That being said, Penny will most likely be in, and there is a strong chance that Neo can show up hidden in the arena battle because they're probably cheeting. Remember CFVY in doubles battle when C&Y were against (what was their team name?) Emerald & Mercury (& possibly Neo distracting Coco). This all took place in the cover of trees, so again if it was Emeralds' semblance why hide it? But, if Neo is secretly on the battle field (using her semblence); then the cover and pulling Coco into the wooded area, all makes perfect sense.The episode before Cinder tells them that she will make the preperations.


    If Yang wins that would be awesome, but I have a feeling that won't be the outcome. What I see is Yang discovering that Neo is cheeting, and that will result in another Yang vs Neo battle, but not a sactioned fight. That means that Pyrrah was actually in an elevator to see Ozpin and Neo is somewhere else.The fact that Penny has a plan to stay at Beacon makes me wonder if she has been talking to Torchwick somehow. Now that Cinder knows of P.e.n.n.y. what to expect is anyone's guess.


    Also, it's just a loose theory but, does Raven only show up when Yang is unconscious? The way Qrow said "She's the one responsible for Autumn's condition" makes me wonder if Autumn isn't another nickname for Raven because he seems very familiar with whoever Autumn is. The drinking could be a way that he keeps in contact with her, given only being around when the one's you love are unconscious is a terible condition. Like most theories this one could fall apart instantly next episode.

    • PogueMahone6

      1 year ago

      I don't think Neo will be able to cheat in this one, given the fact that from the teaser it looks as if there's nothing surrounding the two. With Yatsu and Coco there was forests and plains and such brought up for the fight.

    I'm actually very excited about this fight. Honestly, I hope Mercury's weakness is fist based fighters. Or, at the very least, fighters that can get a good grasp on him and beat him down.


    Like Yatsuhashi was able to do when Mercury was mid-jump, I hope Yang can get a good grapple on his shirt and just hit him with everything she's got.


    That being said, I think Mercury will still win. Because Mercury

    Predictions for matches: Yang vs Mercury - Mercury's gonna win via curb-stop battle.

    Next: Its either gonna Pyrrha, Nora, or Ren (because lets face it, Jaune is not one-on-one material at this point.) vs either Penny (Penny vs Pyrrha would be a very interesting battle, especially for someone who can manipulate metal like Pyrrha.) or any member of Team SSSN. Other than that, I have no idea.


    Also, I can see Ironwood screwing up really badly in the near future.

      Agreed Hameth. He's very much screwed up, and anything he's doing right now is purely damage control. Hell, the entire point of Qrow, Glynda and Oz talking to him in the end of episode 3 was to point out just how badly he screwed up and how much hard he made their jobs now.


      My prediction is Mercury and Yang fight to a draw. Mercury cause he's trying to lose but make it look good for Cinder's plan, Yang cause Mercury is her natural enemy in terms of fighting style. Also, I believe there may be some reference to her worried glance at EM in the early episodes, and perhaps what Raven may have told her in Volume 2's finale.


      I would very much like to see Raven make an appearance soon.

    Wait, there has to be more than one finals?
    Penny and Ciel won in their 2v2 match, so one of them has to fight somebody in the other finals match?

    Also we gotta see team JNPR and SSSN fight. But I think we'll get that covered in a flashback at least.

    And yeh, I place my bets on Mercury in that fight. Monty himself said that Yang's hard counter is kicking fight style, I don't think she'll be able to outclass a pro fighter such as Mercury (also I think it'd be better for the plot if she lost).

    episode looks good, looking forward to it
    personally I think that Wies is in the hospital from her sacrifice in the doubles round, and that Mercury will be exceptionally brutal, breaking an arm or something putting Yang in the hospital as well.
    Then when the villains kick off operation impending doom (placeholder name) it'll just be Ruby and Blake of team RWBY to fight them. But Blake will see Adam, be surprised/ unable to strike him, and get herself captured. So it's all up to Ruby to save the day.

      From plot perspective Cinder can't fight against Ruby, that would be a dumb move. Cinder vs Ruby or Yang vs Neo won't / shouldn't happen because they could blow their cover. What if they recognize their fighting style or semblance from their previous fights? Plot hole...

      Yang is the repesenative of Team RWBY. The Team and Doubles Battles are a peliminary battle system to limit the number of compeditors in the Singles Rounds (by emiminating multiple potential candidates). Getting (1) member of your team to the sigles round is the goal of the those peliminary battles. Now that Yang is in the Singles Round there will be 1vs1 elimination battles to determine who the Tournament victor is. Win and you move on to fight another winner, lose and you're out. It will continue until the final match, to determine the Tournament Victor. Hope that helps.

      I derped but ruby does tend to fight cinder like blake fights Torchwick. either way it would have been dumb move on cinders part misjudging ruby, but now she knows penny secret. anyway cinde has been pulling the strings for too long and i just what to see if that would expose her but it wont.

    The only way I can see Yang winning is if Cinder has some deal with Raven. If they are allies, or Raven is the boss, or Cinder doesn't want to make Raven her enemy, she might have promised to make Yang the winner or not to harm her or something like that. Whatever happens, this episode will be great!!

      I don't think so. The last thing we want is to watch Yang get a fake win, and thus be disempowered by humiliation.

    Interesting match up, Yang v.s Sasuke (*Chuckles* I realize Yuri has done hundreds of other roles over the years, Sasuke is just my favorite character from Naruto) Also, I am curious about the "guardian" i have a sneaking suspicion that its not just 1 person, but the usual 4 man team. I mean, currently we see 4 powerful hunters and huntresses are secretly meeting up, with a few people, including other main country schools headmasters knowing about it, so it makes me think these four pick one student that are "guardian" material. Oz with Pyhrra, Glenda for Yang, Ironwood for Penny (Cause who else?), and Crow may dote on Ruby a little and choose her...whats that spell? Team P.Y.P.R (Piper) as in, "Pay the Piper" Very possible this may not happen, or may have different team members or naming choice, but gut feeling of mine tells me this is how things may go on the "Guardian" part of volume 3's story.

      Interesting, but if it's really going to be a four man team, I think it's likelier that they pick one student from every academy. I mean it's four academies after all.

      Yeah, I know what you mean...but I think one of the world of Remnant videos said one of the kingdoms are debunked, or something like that. It sounds more logical, but if this is a new team I would rather it be four characters we know already and not 1-2 that grouped with 2-3 characters we are just seeing for the first time. I remember on episode 3 Crow mentioned other headmasters are aware of these descussions and meetings, but still, I feel it would be weird since we know practically nothing about them this late into the season.

    This is gonna be one hell of a match. I mean Mercury stopped smiling which means he is deadly serious.

    It would also be interesting if Mercury's weakness is people who use their fists in combat, which is the opposite of Yang.

    I am now actually curious as to when Ruby will actually be important to the series

    • JaseAlex FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      There is an expression that "A combat ready Unit is never inspection ready, and that an Inspection ready unit is never combat ready." So, in peace times, for a parade, Pyrrah looks and acts how a hero of the poeple would be expected, a Champion. Now, if the situation were to turn from peace time to a combat zone... suddenly Team RWBY seem like a combat ready unit able to take on what would basically be a terrorist attack. Combat Ready.

      Also, Penny.


      So, how they are important, could be that they are the right people, in the right place, at the right time, to do the right thing. When it matters the most.

      I just want more development for Ruby. Sure, we saw the evolution of her leadership skills in battle against Roman and we've heard a little about how she reacted to her mother's death from Yang, but overall, for a main character, we spend very little time actually with Ruby. I also want to see more of Ruby being a role model and actually giving advice to her team like she did for Jaune back in Volume 1. Outside of battle, she still doesn't seem like much of a leader.

      You know, I, as most people, figured everything else out, but I never put it together that Qrow was the Scarecrow. I just sort of always assumed that there was a very important crow in some fairy tale or myth like Odin's ravens or something. You, sir, deserve a clap and a half.

      My gosh! You're right!!! And Ruby is Dorothy, who had ruby slippers! I'm pretty certain the "real life" counterpart to the Scarecrow was Dorothy's uncle!!!

    • TenRyuGa

      1 year ago

      Huh... thought everyone already figured this out (except the Ruby is Dorothy thing for me, which leads to Zwei being Toto.).


      Now that I think about it... would Taiyang be the cowardly lion of the crew? And if this whole setup is like the Wizard of Oz, does that mean that after this season, Ruby (with Zwei) will be separated from the rest of the group and land somewhere (which is definitely not Vale anymore) and she need to journey down the path to find Ozpin, along the way she would run into either the three representing Dorothy's companion (Qrow, Ironwood, and Taiyang) or maybe a make-up new generation group (Jaune definitely fits the cowardly lion). After they discovered news of Cinder and her atrocities since the group got separated, they will be off to defeat the 'Wicked Witch' and her army of 'winged monkeys' *cough*White Fang*cough*


      After they defeated Cinder and found Ozpin again, he would offer Ruby to 'go back' with the weird machinery that was built into the headmaster's office in Beacon, in which she would wake up and we find out that the entire series was actually just a dream of Summer Rose! (And Jaune was Summer's dream version of Taiyang)

  • Red_Rogue_50

    Just going to go out on a limb and give Ozpin and Qrow the benefit of the doubt here...

    Let's assume that the speculation on Neo impersonating Pyrrha is correct. I would think that Ozpin and Qrow, who from previous reports should be aware of Neo's semblance, would be able to detect an imposter in their midst. I would like to speculate that the reason they are "choosing" Pyrrha as the guardian, is because they know their opponent is attempting to discover the guardian's identity, and are shining the spotlight on Pyrrha to distract from their real choice.


    We all know Pyrrha is capable, and thus would be the most likely person to succeed in defending herself were she attacked. Ruby (the "main" character) is the most obvious choice to fulfill some "chosen one" role. At least in the audience's eyes... yet she is also the youngest student at Beacon, and has a bit of maturing to do before she is ready to fulfill that role. Ozpin and Qrow might see this, and want to give her time to grow into the shoes they have set aside for her, so to speak.


    Therefore, I theorize that Pyrrha will act as a guardian (by being a scapegoat...) but Ruby will act as THE guardian... and what we will see in the next episode is merely Ozpin's next move in the chess game he appears to be playing.


    My only question... is he playing against Cinder? Or is she merely another piece on the board...

    • Deployed FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Very interesting thought.


      For me, the direction of the show and the purpose of various characters is heavily implied in the lyrics of the songs, the intro to volume 1 and 2 being significant ones.


      For me, this all boils down to the intentions of Cinder's team. They are clearly on the side of anarchy. Bringing down establishment is an obvious intent, but we have to remember that Ozpin and his cohorts are not outright good guys, even though their intent is.


      There are a lot of half baked theories in my head, some support the idea of the Pyrrha in Ozpin's office being Neo, but it requires some conclusions that are a bit of a stretch with the information we currently have.


      But there is one I am happy to share. Cinder's team has been tasked to disrupt establishment, but in a way that makes everyone lose trust in it, including all the fringe Hunters and Huntresses. This isn't so much a ploy to replace them with their own order necessarily, but more to do with someone (the person Ozpin is conversing with at the start of Volume one's intro) feeling incredibly wronged by the order that has been brought by the Academies. Someone who has felt used and wants to destroy that order by making it common knowledge.


      I often wonder about who the lyrics to 'Sacrifice' are directed at, and more importantly, who is saying them. I've seen many people feel it was directed at Cinder and sung by a resistant Ruby, but I am leaning to something darker. I wont saying everything I am thinking on this, but I will say this much, I think the lyrics are directed at Ozpin. The implied character that I think is singing them? I think it's best to leave that as being a reveal from the show. If I'm right, I think it's an amazing story, if I'm wrong, I am very interested in seeing where they are actually going with the story.


      Sorry if that seemed a bit ramble-on, but the point I'm getting at, the importance of Ruby is not rooted within the existing structure of the world, but rather to see it through the coming darkness and the bring it into a new dawn, and not just on her own, but as a team. If Ruby ascends to Guardian, especially this early, what is the purpose of her team?

      maybe the guardian role is something different than we think. For example Pyrrha may actually be guarding the character the Ruby will become.

      Honestly, the way that CRWBY is basically shoving implications that Phyrra is going to be the guardian down our throats for the past week makes it seem like she won't be it.


      Hear me out, what if they summoned Phyrra to Ozpin's office, but the Phyrra that showed up was Neo, BUT THEY KNEW. Ozpin could be accusing her of conspiracy, and then bringing her out into the arena not to announce her as guardian, but to expose her publicly! It would explain everything we've seen of their interactions so far, and it would be an interesting twist and a crazy mindfuck to all the audience.

      I'm curious about that too. Not about the actual fight, this volume is already ridiculously fight heavy, and by all means I feel that it would not hurt for us not to see JNPR's or SSSN's 2v2s, but the trailer there felt like it said 'Final' and not 'Finals', so I do wonder what happened to the victors of these other fights. I was honestly expecting the final to being 1 representative from 4 or 8 teams in a free-for-all fight.

      I am happy that we will be moving away from the tournament soon though. I've loved the fights, but I want the story to advance, and a whole volume in this coliseum was going to be a bit of a push for prolonged enjoyment.

      I agree (with your 1st and 4th sentences, lol). Both their top potentials are up in the air, but it has been clear Mercury holds back, whereas Yang (in classic deuteragonist fashion) breaks limits. If she wins, it'll be up to her semblance, of course. But how long will she remain conscious/able to fight under tournament regulations? Mercury does seem to like playing with his "bait" though... That may cost him, but I honestly think Yang is beat :(


      Also: was really hoping Ruby would be the 1v1 nominee...

      @PirateKing006 I was curious about that too, but I re-watched the first chapter, and the rundown of the rules implies that the 1 that advances after the 2v2 round must be one of the 2. It's not clearly stated, and I was hoping for Ruby at that point too.
