      Yeah there's a lot of questions that have not been answered. Like will the RWBY team meet up towards the end of the series or beginning? I think towards the beginning since I doubt the others will be going to Mistral by foot once they reach the continant (Yang certainly isn't). Will Ruby be attending the huntsman academy over there to continue training or will Qrow take her under his wing (no pun intended). I also have a feeling that Yang is going to meet up with Raven along the way by means of having a run-in with the raiders on the way to Mistral. Raven may even help Yang get there faster. Then there's a lot to be seen with Oscar.

    It's interesting what you can tell about the little details.  First off, it's fairly easy to determine that this takes place before the events in the White Trailer, due to the absence of Weiss' scar.  However, of equal interest is the fact that her bun and tail are tied directly behind her head, rather than being offset to the right.  What that means exactly, I'm not sure, maybe something suggesting a certain lack of resolve.  However, of interest is the moment at 1:33, where she takes a second to gaze admiringly at Myrtenaster.  This suggests that this takes place not all that long after she got it and is still getting used to its features and the excitement of having her own weapon.  It's impressive at how many little details the staff can slip into their work nowadays.

      I have to agree I just hope characters like Winter get to interact with Weiss a lot and I hope she gets to know and like the other members of team RWBY as well and maybe some other characters come back to be part of the main story and not just die too fast I want see more and certain characters interact with each other other wise it seems like a waste opportunity either way I am excited about Volume 5.

    I hope there are more character interactions in volume 5 I want to see more characters that don't show up much apart of the main story with team RWBY like JNPR survivers and members of team SSSN and CFVY show up to be part of the story it might be difficult but I think it can work they may not show up but i can hope.

    Since they said that there was going to be three character shorts coming, this is what i believe is going to happen. I believed that they were planning to release a character short for each of the girls.

    Ruby had hers already for last year's volume 4 and now they've released one of Weiss. And if my suspicions are right, that means that the next two character shorts are going to be of Blake and Yang.

    The animation I've witnessed here is top-class. The way they incorporated elements of ballet into the fighting style is reminiscent of fighting games like Tekken that are on-point. I really hope we get to see a lot more of this style as the series develops. Cheers, RWBY team.

    Question: Was the White trailer also a test administered by Winter?

    • YutoTheRebel

      1 week ago

      No. The manga, which is considered canon, shows that the events of the White Trailer were set up by Jacques as a Test for Weiss. If she passes, she goes to Beacon. If she fails, she doesn't. And by fail, I mean gets the crap beaten out of her.

      I believe the manga talked about how the knight she fights in the white trailer was a geist grim taking over the armor, not a summon.

      Excuse me for a moment...BWAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      Man, I haven't had that much of a laugh in a while. But seriously, Yang, a former First Year student, going toe on toe with her Elite Huntress mother Raven Branwen? After she got one shotted like a basic bitch by the much weaker Adam? You're hilarious. ;D


      The only way that's going to happen is if Yang invokes the same rigged fight plot BS she had in Yang vs Tifa. And anyone with half a brain can tell you that the Yang vs Tifa DB was bullshit and was just a cheap rigged publicity stunt to build up hype for Volume 3.

      @Jaune_Black_Smudge While I do agree at this point in time that there is no way Yang could go up against her mother, you really should gone about that differently. However, I'm not commenting to point out your lack of manners. We still have two whole volumes for the Yang character short to come out if RT follows this schedule. Plus, the character shorts (as proven by this one) don't always take place if a direct cannon timeline, so Yang's could be a flash forward in time. 


      Also, even if the Yang vs Tifa fight was rigged (and I'm not saying it was as I don't know enough about Tifa to call BS on it, for all I know it could have been) they wouldn't have needed to do that to hype for volume three. People would have been interested in the character and show even if Yang lost.

      It won't be. Not because it won't happen but these are teasers. It's a plot point in the show that she has decided which direction she would take but we as the audience don't know. Revealing that in a character teaser short would just be poor planning.

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

      Dude, at the RWBY Panel at RTX 2017, Kerry mentioned that there would be 3 Character Shorts leading up to RWBY Volume 5, one for Weiss, Blake, and Yang respectively. But hey, at least you know and now we don't need to wait 2 years for the Yang Trailer.


      ------------


      I'm a huge RWBY fan and I've never played a Final Fantasy game in my life but even I could tell that Tifa should've won against Yang easily. But she was restricted a lot while Yang's feats were miscalculated on purpose to make her stronger than she actually was. I could go on and on about the false advantages they gave Yang, like giving her Aura a No-Limits Fallacy when we've seen in the show that it is quite finite. Hell, in Volume 3 itself, even when Mercury was holding back against Yang, he still beat her to the point where she was at 16% Aura, just one point from being declared unfit to battle. They're justification for the No Limit Fallacy was that they couldn't calculate how much damage Yang can take with her Aura. Just like they also couldn't calculate how strong Tifa can be with her Limit Break on so they just arted like she never had one.


      Then there's the fudging of the Pillar Break calculation. Except 1400 tons is the amount of force you would need to break a 4 ft thick pillar VERTICALLY, not HORIZONTALLY which is only 10% of that at 140 tons. And if you don't believe me, ask any architecture student or teacher "How much force in tonnes would be needed to break a 4 foot thick concrete pillar horizontally?" and I can assure you, the answer you'll get will be nowhere near 1400 tons.


      As if that wasn't suspicious enough, the fact that RT announced they bought Screw Attack just 2 weeks after the DB aired just confirmed it. So yeah, all that was just a rigged publicity stunt made to just build up hype for RWBY Volume 3 and to get people outside of the fandom to give it a look. And honestly, after seeing Adam Taurus one shot Yang like a chump in the Volume 3, can anyone really say that Yang should've defeated Tifa?


      Unless you're now trying to tell me that Adam Taurus or Qrow Branwen or any of the other fighters in the show are stronger than Sephiroth.


      Don't hate me for my honesty and bluntness for saying it as it is.

    This was beautiful! I love how she incoroporated dance and gymnastics moves in her fighting style.


    I was a little disappointed at the end when the beowulf pinned her down. I thought she was going to pull a trick out of her sleeve, but nope.

    Of course, this was before she trained more and learned how to summon the giant suit of armour.


    OMG - I just rewatched while writing. She's got no scar!

    This was EVEN BEFORE her fight with the suit of armour, before she went to Beacon.


    Gosh. AWESOME.

    anyone else notice how the moon was not as broken up, compared to last season? Definitely another way to confirm that this is a memory, it also may give a visual idea to how long the show will last. By the last season, it may be broken up completely.

      It just means that phase of the moon shows less of its damage.  If you watch the show the amount of ejecta that you see around the moon is not even consistent within the show. This points to the Remnant's moon rotating and at times shows more of its damaged side and less or none at other times.

      That makes sense, especially since Remnant is a planet with the moon orbiting around it. Thanks for clearing that up for me. Definitely an incredible and beautiful animation, can't get enough of that wide shot and the fire arc!

    So is every season gonna have a character short?

    Man so many summons. Does summoning use aura at all or just to little to matter? Or does Winter have a lot of aura to spare or she trained to minimize aura usage as much as possible? Meanwhile Sun summons 4 copies and they lasted 10 seconds and he's completely depleted

      From what I've heard there are supposed to be two more character shorts coming out before volume 5 in October. Winter mentioned in volume 3 how using a semblance is like excercising a muscle, so it's most likely that she's used the summoning part of the Schnee inherited semblance to the point it's second nature to her and uses little to no energy to use.
