RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 6: Known by its Song

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

    Huh, kinda surprised no one else brought up Raven's Terminator reference at 9:45. Ok, it's not word for word, but hey!

  • prettybarrauda430

    I'd like to point out three things:

    1. Do we REALLY think that Ozpin didn't know that Jaune faked his school records to get into Beacon?

    2. Do we really think a bow tie successfully hid the fact Blake was a Faunus from her professors and Professor Ozpin?

    3. Why would Ozpin appoint Jaune, a fake, and Ruby, a "child" as leaders of their respective teams unless he had some plan for them? 

    I mean Jaune has proved to have an unnatural knack for battle tatics (in season 2 they're playing a four-player conquest game and Jaune takes over for Blake and wins despite the fact he has never played the game before) and Ruby has silver eyes which makes her destined to protect others (something her uncle told her).

    Also, Raven's description of how Oz treated STRQ is very similar to how he treated RWBY. Is it possible he intended to take members of both teams to form some kind of team that would serve him? After all, Oz chose Pyria to be the Fall Maiden, knowing she would no longer be part of JNPR. I suspect he planned to create a team with Jaune, Ruby, and at least two other people.

    When this is all over, I really hope Weiss goes with Ruby and Yang back to their home in Patch :) . 

    I feel like she will be more at home with them there then she is at her proper house.

    So in his spare time, Piccollo runs a Ramen shop? (Kudos if you get that reference) Moving on...


    Another great example of just how bad things are, with that opening sequence featuring Qrow's search. Every huntsman and huntress is either dead or out-of-contact.


    What's up with Vernal's weapon? Is that some kind of oversized, pincer-firing hand-cannon?


    About Raven's speech: Kind of a letdown. She didn't tell Yang or Weiss anything other than 'Be wary' coupled with plenty of vague-for-obscurities'-sake. That tidbit about why Raven and Qrow went to Beacon, however, that was something else. In this scene, I was reminded of Volume 2, when the girls were looking for the White Fang's hideout and, in the evening, sat around the camp fire discussing Professor Oobleck's questions for them about why they wanted to be huntresses; now Raven's basically saying, 'Aww, that's cute. For a child.' Now that I think about it, her attitude reminds me of Roman Torchwick - especially in Volume 3 when he started mocking Ruby for thinking her life would be like a fairy tale; "You wanna be the hero? Then play the part and DIE like every other huntsman in history!"


    Another thing that sent alarm bells off in my head; the dead coming back to  life. I hope that was merely a reference to Ozpin or something. Please, RT, PLEASE don't bring back Pyrrah in the flesh. Flashbacks I can handle. More training videos? Ok. But she needs to stay dead. This anime-esque series has been doing a lot right; the willingness to have perma-death, and apply it to named, loved characters, is a highlight. Its existence removes certainty and predictability.


    Plus, as others have noticed, Pyrrahs' death forcibly gives Jeane Arc reason and drive; a place in the show. He has gone from hapless extra with cliché troubles, to someone with an vendetta. Now he's striving to better himself because he's haunted by the failure of not being good enough to save or help Pyrrah. And the feelings are all the more bitter because he was thrust aside by her; she rushed off to die, inadvertently telling Jeane  he would only get in the way (ironic, considering Ozpin's warning to her). Furthermore it brings to mind that Jeane's original resistance to Pyrrah offering to help; because he was tired of being the 'lovable idiot, stuck in a tree while his friends risked their lives.' But I digress.


    How did Yang not know her mom could do that? I assumed she knew back in Volume 2 as Yang told Blake about her search for Raven, and Qrow just happened to show up and save the day. Then, out-of-the-blue, Raven said, 'What Ozpin did to Qrow and me..." Did he give them the ability to transform into birds?! If so, that catapults the theory he really IS the wizard who created the Maidens, on to more credible ground


    Lastly, that meeting of Weiss, Yang and Ruby was perfect. All that's missing is Blake and RWBY will be back. I guess Ozpin/Oscar will join RNJR. So will Team ORNJ be a thing?

    All of Qrow's bit was fantastic, starting off comedic and going right into heartbreaking, but I have some issues with the rest of the in this one.

    1. Yang mentioning she's seen the raven before.

    I'll be completely honest that I'm more bugged by this one than I should be. So I know it's meant to confirm that the raven we seen a couple times was indeed Raven herself, but I felt like Yang saying she's seen it before came off like...holding the viewers hand, for lack of a better term. Granted, I don't know how to do it differently aside from just removing the line all together.

    2. The skepticism with magic.

    Weiss: "We have rock magic, soul magic... But, I mean, there's no such thing as magic magic."

    This is something the series has a problem with in general. Before Ozpin's talk with Pyrrha back in Volume 3, we didn't know that magic wasn't considered real in their universe (it's possible something has been said in a Q&A eons ago, but nothing in the show itself that I recall,) and when the magic-like Dust and Semblances is used nearly every episode, we have no reason not to assume magic isn't real too. Even in the very first episode we had what can only be called a magic fight with Glynda and Cinder. I just tend to dislike arbitrary skepticism unless when used for comedy.


    3. The tent scene.
    How to put this, Raven's lines came off...weird. I get what she was talking about, but she would talk yet not say anything. Take the Ozpin part. Raven would say "that's how he planned it" and how he "has a great and terrible secret" but doesn't actually bother to explain what Ozpin is, and this feels like it's because us viewers already know it more than part of Raven's ploy to convince Yang to stay by dangling the answers to her questions on a hook. 

    Yang's "That doesn't make any sense! How could he have... No. Why would someone even do that?" line bugged me, because it makes it come off to me like the "how" doesn't matter. It does. It would be one thing if Yang was told that Ozpin is really really old before this, because then her dismissing the "how" would have some reason to it (because he's super old yo.) "That doesn't make any sense! How coul-why would someone even do that?" would keep both the "how" and "why" equally important.

    4. The RWY reunion.

    Nothing actually wrong with the scene itself. I just feel like this would have been better placed at the beginning of the next episode than the end of this one. Qrow being surprised at Yang feels more....ending-y.

    I dunno. Maybe my opinions will change later on, but that's what I felt during the episode.

      “If you stay with me I’ll answer all your questions...” that’s why Raven talked yet didn’t say anything.

    • digrett

      Know what bothered me when Raven was talking? She made the statement that the truth is hard to come by and that a story of victory is the story of defeat for another? Like, what's the context? What is she talking about?! I know she is trying to impose she knows the truth or something like that but, it was just odd. Raven, I love you but you need to word better.

      Eh, it's only two more layers of magic than we already got. Like, we got spoopy interaction at a distance magic, and crazy fast makes time all gelatinous magic. Magic+Maths*Time=Science. Anything we don't understand seems oddly magic.

      2. Magic


      So this is from my point of view, thus I could be mistaken (and I'm choosing to ignore the easy solution: RoosterTeeth and Monty weren't sure where to draw the line when this show first began, so that magic has been slowly defined instead of clearly stated) but here goes:


      Dust is an Element with several properties. In the world of Remnant it could best be described as having its own spot on the Period Table of Elements, except it doesn't seem to have a consistent form. But it DOES have form. Meaning it's matter, it takes up a space and is measurable; it can be manipulated and refined, experimented on, used in construction of other things, etc.


      Semblances are a bit trickier to explain since these really do seem to fall under magic. Except these can be genetic. Weiss and Winter share a common Semblance. I'm betting Tai and Yang also share a similar special ability. So there are rules to Semblance (though, as Ren explained a chapter or two ago, it can be random) and Semblances are definitely bound to the corporal world. For example transferring the Maiden's power (by redistributing her Amber's Semblance to Pyrrah) required another body, it couldn't be simply stored in a computer or something. (Conspiracy theory: Penny's true purpose was to take the Fall Maiden's power). Another sign of Semblance being bound to certain rules would be Emerald, whose power actually causes her some discomfort and strain. The hunters and huntresses don't need Dust to use their Semblance, but when used together it makes the wielders much more capable and dangerous.


      Magic: By its very nature (traditionally and in Remnant) magic is boundless. It's basically a power that requires no rules, no regulations, and is as powerful as the wielder needs, or can fathom. It has no container, no true measure. That's why it so often appears in fables and other literature; it's a get-of-writer's-jam card, able to solve almost any problem. Usually More Magic has been the solution to any bind its wielder finds themselves in. Sometimes they attach words to magic, or swords, even masks, sometimes handsigns, occasionally an object like wands, but (especially in anime) these things are regularly disregarded as needed because magic is magic; to the writer it shouldn't have limits.


      The magic of Remnant, of the Maiden's specifically, is basically unlimited power. It's probable Cinder intensely trained with what little Fall Maiden power she had prior to taking the rest of it. As mentioned in that Volume 3 flashback, she wanted power, she wants to be feared. Amber (the Fall Maiden) didn't have such ambitions, even with such a short clip of personality, she obviously was living a gentle life.


      Sorry for the length, hope it helps.

    Despite many doing nothing but complaining about the length or the lack of action, Volume 5 is so far turning out to be my favorite overall. We finally got some Ruby development, team RWBY is finally going to be together again, we got a winged fanus after all this time, the few action sequences we've gotten have shown character growth as well as how the animators are improving. Now we just need Neo and everything I hoped for this volume will have happened. (Plus, everything Nora says so far is gold.) Just think, there's still plenty left to go. The action and major plot twists everyone's waiting for can still happen.


    Anyway, my point is, RWBY is not just about the fighting or the episode length. So can we just enjoy what we have?

    My heart filled with joy when Yang and Ruby reunited as that is how I feel with my own sibling at times. Very touching, sentimental, and well placed. I think Weiss seeing Ruby/Yang reunion made her miss Winter (at least that's what I want to believe), and I am happy they had the group hug giving her a sense of belonging. Well done RT.

      My best guess as to what happened to them all is that all of Qrow's old buddies had the same exact contract: to kill or capture Raven Branwen. After the story that psycho told Yang, it's quite clear that none of them were successful.

    I guess the plots really have to catch on somewhat, and I think it would be like what I presume... The huntsmen and huntresses of today die, while the new generation of them rise to fight against Salem. What is current today is being destroyed, and it means... anyone who protects you now is a target. Even if they have the sense of justice in them, all of them will never stand a chance. Only those who know the truth have the edge. The rest die, and it becomes an impossible war. Somewhere between these lines.

      Through out Volume 1-3 you will see a black bird from time to time, most noticeably when Yang is looking out her window when she is lying in bed in Volume 3, Chapter 12. The theory that the bird was Raven came about after the end of Volume 3 when Qrow appeared to turn into a bird and fly after RNJR

    Again! With the feels RT! That was a great reunion, and overall, a great episode!~

    While I admit at first, it didn't feel as sweet as when Yang and Weiss reunited, it definitely became real sweet and adorable as it played on~ :D Especially when Weiss joined in on the reunion hug~ (Gawww~ That was so Freaken Adorable!!!)


    I love the fact that Ruby was all apologetic and fearful upon seeing Yang for the first time in months. 

    It really shows that even though Ruby has been through a lot, and definitely grown in many aspects, she's still a child at heart! She feared being punished by her sister for, essentially, running away from home.

    RT could have gone with Ruby, just filled with bawling tears and bomb-rushes Yang with the biggest hug she could give, but that would have been an incredibly cliche moment.


    I really want to emphasize the fact that she was 'fearful' of her older sister though.

    You can see at 15:40 that Ruby was, at first, shocked beyond belief, but shortly after, her eyes and expression immediately filled with fear and worry; worry for what Yang has to say about her and her journey.

    Even shortly after that, at 15:44, you can see that Yang's eyes become narrow and quite 'hollow', while having a rather stern-looking expression; almost like a 'calm but angry' look. Then Ruby, soon after, begins her apologies and regrets. I could name more small details about body language and such, but this post is long enough as it is xD


    It's moments like these that really do shine in RWBY. The attention to detail is fantastic, which in turn, brings out the characteristics that we all love about our beloved huntresses~ :D

      Well, you have to remember that Summer died while Ruby was young. Ruby probably doesn't know much about her mother—and she probably doesn't like to bring her up a lot. Sure, Ruby might be curious to learn more about Summer, but she's too involved her current journey to think about her a lot.

      I think that salem took the summer maiden powers and the winter maiden powers, she did it the same way Cinder took the fall maiden powers( I think Salem gave Cinder the little grimm ). Since only the fall maiden is left, she is the most important and that's why every one is going after her and are not talking about the others.

      I have a little theory about that. I think Summer may have been the Summer maiden (I have more reasons but I won't go into it here yet) but Ruby didn't get them- I think Raven killed Summer and took the power for herself. If possibly all 4 members of team RWBY end up with the maiden powers (I also have actual reasons to believe this) I think Yang will end up with the summer power. I find it likely that she will have to fight Raven and either kill her or witness her death anyway.

You do also realise that no 30 minute time slot shows are actually 30 mins? Anime is about 20 minutes, 24 with opening and ending usually, depending on length. You're not going to get 30 minute episodes ever even if they ever manage to reach the industry standard.

    I can't describe how much I've missed seeing our girls together. With the reunion of Ruby, Weiss and Yang reunited I truly have hope that Blake will reunite with the others by the Volume's finale. I don't expect RWBY to have a super happy reunion with Blake return, but there is plenty of time later for Team RWBY to rebuild their sisterly bond.

    I'm going to post a comment that is review-wise rather than rant-wise. Still... it doesn't make me feel like deleting the comments that I've first mentioned onto this episode. It doesn't change my mind the clip lengths SHOULD be lengthened for the next season, or better, for future episodes.


    First off, the dynamics between action and emotion are definitely not on sync. When it comes to the plot itself, I see more plot thickening moments than progress. I believe when it comes to filler episodes... it's just full of FILLERS. Sorry, but including Chapter 5, they are both filler episodes only. There has to be flexibility to the dynamics and as well as balance to be better.


    Second... I like how the voices live up to the character developments, so well done on this episode. I like it. Realism is seen here, and that's what some hope for in different animations today. It's especially done well during the Ruby-Yang reunion. It's a sweet moment for the overall.

    Anyway... that's about it. The episode is good, but it's still a plot-thickened episode. If there's more action on the next one, it would at least not make me puke rainbows. 


    AND... please extend the clips to 30 minutes regular if possible. No way am I gonna forget the flaw of under 30 minutes regular, so you guys, are gonna have an interesting time... with me! ^_^ Cheers.

      Elsewhere in this comment thread, I responded to the abrasive attitude you had.  I will not be doing that here.  Instead here I am going to talk about your what you have actually said here about the length of the chapters.


      The reason most animated shows are 20-22 minutes plus ads (not 30 minutes) is because they need to fit within a broadcast television schedule.  Video on Demand shows such a RWBY are not restricted by television schedules, so they have no reason to give the chapters any more length than the story requires.  There really isn't any reason to make them 30 minutes.

      Dude quit yor complaining the episodes get higher depending on the magnitude of the event that is happening in the episode you watch. Plus this be Americ(Not trying to be a Jack ass right now but just listen to what I say.) a place where lazy people get even more lazy including their social media and wat not.

      Realistically, if they made the episodes any longer it would actually be full of FILLER. Yet, they haven't extended it that much which is great. I feel every scene has some significance to the overall plot whether it is character development, progressing the story line, demonstrating character significance, character background, etc. I'm glad they are not longer. Besides, in the end it will just make one really long volume which you can then watch IN 30 MINUTE INTERVALS. Problem solved. Just stop watching the show today, and wait for ALL of them to come out. Then watch however many minutes  at a time that you want to watch (22-30 minutes or whatever your little heart desires). :D This amount is just fine with me and clearly plenty of other people. Good day to you too, EliteLenny.

    Dunno why people want RT to extend the playtime. I find these 16-18 minute episodes very engaging. If they made the time frame longer, the number of episodes would be the sacrifice. Also, its a good enough length so that they're not bombarding you with endless amounts of information.

    Quality over Quantity mates!

      Quality is counted, but at least there should be more time to invest on, right? I wait for three weeks on anime which is okay. There's advantage to having to wait one week, but the series clips are regularly shorter than what I'm used to. In fact, there are more people who find it more interesting to get into the standard half-hour shows. Can't argue with you about the quality that is prioritized, but RT should be more flexible.

      zonemonboy, I agree. And besides, guys, lets not forget that back in Volume 1 we had episodes that were less than 5 minutes long. 10 minutes was a long episode back then. This is a huge improvement. Hopefully one day we'll be able to have a 20 - 25 minute episode every week, like your average anime has, but I'm content to wait for that day. One step at a time, guys.
      Also, just personally, I'll take slightly shorter episodes over being interrupted by World of Remnant every third or fourth episode. Don't get me wrong, the WORs are interesting and I enjoy the information they provide about Remnant, but it's always a bit of a letdown when you're in the middle of a season and hyped to find out what happens next, and you get a WOR instead.

      To elitelenny223, I legitimately can’t wait for the next WOR. Animation takes time, and the writers would have to stretch out parts of the story to fill 30 minutes which would overall make a less satisfying episode

    I love RWBY VOLUME series shows do much 

  • Voodoochill

    I have a theory...I'm pretty much sure that the next few episodes will revolve around Ozpin and Yang since it's no brainer that Yang will find out that Ozpin resurrected through Oscar, this will reflect to what's Raven has told her (giving her credibility about claiming that she knows people return from the dead) and maybe inside Yangs heart, she'll get conflicted inside (esp knowing that her mom isn't just making s* up.) I have a feeling that Ozpin and Salem are related (or a split half of one entity) and so he created this whole huntsman thing to balance what might just be a family rivalry / race or whatever (which Raven finds hypocritical and may be the reason why she has no faith in family) 


    But on the other hand, Ozpin must've done quite a lot to turn over Qrow's bandit huntress killing ways considering how free spirited he is...Qrow did mention that he "owes his life" to Ozpin. 


    The plot thickens huh?

      My theory is this:  He's so dead.  I can't call Kali though.  It can honestly go either way.  Corsac and Fennec will survive along with Illia and Sun.  Any other attackers will either die or be incapacitated.  Blake will be captured and carried away to Mistral.  I believe Yuma will take her by air.  Sun will fight like never before and will rally Menagerie with or without Kali.  We'll see how I do.

    Anyone else felt like a complete idiot when watching the end of volume 3? WATCHING THE END CREDIT QROW TURNING INTO A FRIKIN CROW? And later him doing it again in volume 4? After Qrow's semblance of misfortune was revealed I kept wondering 'What the heck happened to Qrow being able to turn into a crow?' so good to know that this plot hole might actually be resolved.

      Today's episode and the episode where Qrow himself is a shapeshifter, is a real head-turning part of the series. It proves magic exists in Remnant, which will be the biggest revelation that could change the story forever if RT improves on the concept.
