It opens with Ironwood looking out in the distance at night until Glynda comes out and, contrary to her previous interactions, gives him a pep talk about trust after complimenting him. We then cut to RWBY, with the others faking sleep until the professor is asleep before they contemplate the meaning of being huntresses. Weiss admits that her father is a corrupt executive and being a huntress is a way to redeem her family name, Blake joined Beacon after realizing that White Fang went off the deep end but she doesn’t know what she’s going to do afterwards and runs from challenges, and Yang just goes with the flow and loves adventure. So Ruby is the only one who really joined simply to be a huntress while the others see it as a job.
Later on Zwei wakes Ruby up to go potty when they run across White Fang members patrolling and Ruby and the dog chase them before falling into a literal pit trap into the enemy territory and getting knocked out and the dog fetches the others. The White Fang members take her to Roman, so she’s screwed, and Oobleck goes on a lecture about the underground village where bad stuff happened and he whips out his weapon and tells them they need to find Ruby.
It’s 5 out of 5 obviously.
A bit late to the party, but I wanted to let everyone who visits know about a great new web animation from the people at Rooster Teeth and Monty Oum, the guy behind Dead Fantasy.
Mankind lived in peace until the arrival of “The Grim”, malevolent creatures who emerged from the darkness to attack humanity. To fight back, mankind created a magical energy source known as “Dust” and used its power to not only drive back the Grim but catalyze the growth of civilization across the planet. In the present day, “Hunters” are trained in special schools to harness the Dust and become protectors of the peace.
One such trainee, an idealistic girl named Ruby Rose, is scouted by the elite Beacon Academy and allowed to skip two years worth of training to attend. Once there, she is placed into a team with three other students: Yang Xiao Long, her boisterous big sister; Weiss Schnee, the heiress of the Schnee Dust Company; and Blake Belladonna, a mysterious and aloof girl. Though initial tensions are high, the forces of darkness are preparing to return and the four girls must learn to work together to have any chance of surviving.
The episodes are released every Thursday with five out at the time of the posting.
