I love Neo!
I HATE THIS SHOW AAAAAAAAHHHH
This is earth's most foolish program. Why does Yang, the largest RWBY, not simply eat the other three?
THE SHOT THAT SAVED THIS VOLUME
>>136102737What did they win?
I know it's hard to accept, but at this point it's already too obvious.Neo will die and thanks to the power of Wonderland she will restart to become Trivia.that will be it, no redemption, no fine fight, no character arc, just an embarrassing and sad resolution for the best character in the series.
>>136102740How old is he now?
>>136102756Too old for all his ships
>>136102730Perhaps they are saving it for V10
>>136101808>>136102470>>136102462>>136102401>>136102369>Hey, with 2 years we've been given. Should we actually try and learn what we're doing wrong? Fix it up with all the time we have?>Nah fuck that, lets just read some fanfics to write this, also lets fuck around with time crap.To the person that is in charge of greenlighting (or not) RWBY volumes: Thank you. You are finally doing a fine job. Giving easy passes to RT for new volumes' production has damaged the franchise a lot, across an entire decade. It was about time to start course correcting the quality of the writing, not to mention the state of RT as a company. Sure, how they mistreat and belittle their animators/employees sucks, but it's not like RWBY as an IP had any bright future to brag about, when they still kept lazily speedrunning the script process. Not greenlighting V10 right away, before seeing the reception and numbers of V9, is a slap in the face to RT (mainly MKEK). Finally, they are facing the harsh reality. Hopefully, this works as a wake-up call for them to start improving and putting more effort into the writing process. Besides, to start treating better their animators/employees, of course. And if RT simply closes and RWBY doesn't continue after V9, well, too bad. They had 10 years to make this IP work and simply wasted them.>>136102317I'm not sure if to drop already the volume, because I can already see the next half of it being as bad as the former. I think I may drop it just like I did with Ice Queendom, and will also I never bother checking the JL crossover movies. But personally, I will always treasure Roman Holiday for proving to me what I always suspected: RWBY always had potential to be good, it was just the writing holding it down. No regrets in buying pic-related.Monty's creation deserved better. And it still does.
>>136102730>Yang, the largest RWBY
>>136102753And we still don't have any confirmed season 10.
Me except I'm over 18 and allowed to post on 4chan.
>>136102756Nobody knows, everyone is just assuming numbers
Adam warned Yang.
>>136102756>he's younger>he just hasn't kept up with his shaving routine
>>136102765We don't know that. AoC laws on Remnant were never confirmed.
>>136102712Scythes fucking rule, if you think otherwise then you are most likely a peepee head of some sort. Perhaps even stinky, or ugly. >>136102780Whatever you went through, Cinder, it wasn't enough. Eat shit.
>Ruby trades teapot lady a "mother's promise">Teapot lady found crying over all her things broken>Ruby's mother broke her promiseSo do you think that was intentional or was the furthest extent of their thinking "It would be more sad if they find teapot lady crying" and they didn't even realize that minor bit of depth?
>>136102753Anon, let's not consider horrible possibilities. It was bad enough Penny became human.
>>136102786I wonder if some of the more rabid bumblefuck shippers will actually throw a fit over this little joke. Would love to see it.
>Blake confirmed to still prefer older men instead of YangVery dangerously Based from then.
>>136102803Rubes confirmed Dacian.
>>136102810Unintentional. It's RT.
>Jobberwonkys was summoned using Neo's semblance>she was there in the fight but hidden>after the first Jobbermonky dies, Weiss goes to find Ruby, who doesn't speak to her>Ruby doesn't speak at all during or after the fight>Little wasn't in Ruby's hoodIt's Neo. We're getting the bridge scene next episode and it's going to be Neo.
>>136102756>How old is he now?Based on his hair streaks, Qrow or Ironwood age. So at least mid 40s.Maybe even old enough to be Roman's dad
>>136102803Scythes are shitty awful weapons that can only slice someone in a very awful position
>>136102823Her body language says everything
RWBY Return of a King is better than this bullshit. Only consume RWBY fanfiction bros
>>136102786>>136102823>Yang just fucking stares with that weak smile as her GF gets wet at the sight a manShe's literally a fucking cuckqueen.
>>136102775Which is a good thing
>>136102810No way it was intentional. They would have focused on it more. Instead, once a-fucking-gain, RWBY just trots on by the misery they cause without even trying to help people. I swear to god Jaune is the only character in this show except maybe Oscar who actually interacts positively with civilians.
>>136102823I'm shocked that they didn't have Weiss also fangirl with Blake.
>>136102866What? Neo caused that shit
>>136102873>Expecting a character detail to carry over to the next episodeYou think too much of MKEK
BiCHADS/STACYS always winCope more Hets and Fags and Lesbos
>>136102650>Which is real unfortunate, because "reformed terrorist" has plenty of good potential. I wish they had leaned more into that.Well, it sure gave me enough material for 3 big arcs that I have planned for a Neo story set in the post-Salem era. Already have defined the 13 main villains/antagonists, and how each one's fighting styles, semblances, values and ideologies challenge her in a different ways.
>>136102903Tfw no scythesexual representation..
>>136102810It's intentional, the writers have thought about the show longer than a couple hours.
This show proves god isn't real
>>136102832>Neo's illusions are real in Everafter>Neo disguises herself as Ruby>Backfires and she starts thinking she's the real RubyWe'd never get anything that smart from RT, but it's still a fun idea
>>136102799Pairing old Jaune with any of the girls would be a PR nightmare
>>136102984They were pairing oscar with ruby as rose garden and people still complained. They didn't care anymore.
I'd like to formally apologize to the fanfic ENMY. I dropped you because I thought your "Salem was right" and "Pyrrha is alive again" twists were more retarded than anything RT could pull but clearly I was wrong
>>136102984Just dress him like a drag queen and it'll get applauded.
>>136102984They can go back into his young self like the Prince
Dude this is so like the worst volume like ever
What's his endgame?
>>136102998- It's obvious Ozma will leave to the afterlife with Salem at the end- Ruby and Oscar's age difference is only 2 years- Twitter ship Rosegarden
>>136102852This volume just keeps reinforcing the fact she is that kinky and into weird shit.
>>136102753>Neo will die and thanks to the power of Wonderland she will restart to become Trivia.Well... fuck!
>>136102953>the writers have thought about the show longer than a couple hours>Rooster Teeth>Thinking>Writers
>>136103061I didn't considered that possibility until now, holy heck sounds like cheapest way they could redeem her.
>>136103040They were crying about it because of the old man in his head. If they decide to do old jaune still with any of them they won't care what they say anyway. It's literally end of series shit, so those small voices won't mean shit to them.
>>136103039To be reborn, but for the worse
So did a bunch of monkeys on a typewriter make this shit?
>>136103039Breed Weiss and her mother and sister to produce an ultra powerful huntsman messiah
>>136103087Maybe a minority but twitter in general love Rosegarden. /co/ complain more about the old man in the head than twitter or reddit
>>136103093Please understand, they watched endgame and read a few fanfictions. It was all they had in this 2 year of work.(They will travel back in time)
>>136103039To become a pacifist.
>>136103080>I didn't considered that possibility until now, holy heck sounds like cheapest way they could redeem her.If it's easy and cheap you know RT will buy it.
>>136102855Yang likes hot guys as well, why would she be jealous? If anything she' should be happy because this is the only way Blake is going to be sexually available to her.
I expect nothing less than this power level from Jaune now.
What if Little turns out to have been Alyx having been swallowed by the Ever-After?
>>136103040>- It's obvious Ozma will leave to the afterlife with Salem at the endHis mission has nothing to do with Salem.
>>136102753>This happens, Neo is Trivia again>Most viewers' response is "Who?"I wouldn't put it past MKEK to not only butcher the best character, but do it in a way that leaves most people completely confused as to what's happening.
>>136103094>The fact that Jaune is now in perfect age to get with WillowHeck the gap wouldn't be as wide with Winter either.
>>136103165I hate that they didn't have him fight the Jabberwocky solo.
>>136103039>>136103119Forgiving Cinder. Like I guess the flames represent his own rebirth, but they can also represent hers as well.
>>136103218Winter is searching for a new daddy after her fight with Ironwood
>>136103242I don't see why they should forgive Cinder, the whole point of her character is that she is an irredeemable mess.
>>136103242Cinder killed Pyrrah and caused him to fall into Ever After, losing the best years of his life alone. Forgiving her would make Jaune a bigger cuck than fucking Yang
>>136102753If across 8 years, MKEK has not being capable of writing Neo as an actual character with real development and interactions with others, to the point just Cinder is aware that she's mute, what made you think they were even thinking of giving her an actual character arc? What, you thought that because V9 was going to have a cast of only 6 characters, she was going to get some attention and well-written scenes? Out of nowhere, after 8 years?MKEK is not Casey, who put effort into reading her book, just to write her new theme (Inside).They obviously aren't Myers, who at this point can be considered the actual writer and owner of team CFVY, Roman, and Neo.And obviously, they aren't all the persons that put effort into her fanart, merch, fanfics, and theories surrounding her.To MKEK, she's just a random grunt and a plot device, not a character worth writing as a person. And us, Neofags, are just battered housewives that RT keeps exploiting for money and views.
>>136103165He's gonna suck because even with decades of practice, the most threatening thing to fight in the Ever After is the Jabberwalker, who is like a low tier Grimm basically. He's been playing on easy mode.
>>136103165How do you upload a gif?
>>136102740He honestly looks much more handsome like that then his stupid haircut look
>>136103293Nah, they are clearly going to play it as if Jaune gained a lot of experience of doing vague offscreen stuff as always, just like how he trained as much in Atlas but haven't seen him in proper action.
>>136103316We definitely need him to have a friendly spar with RWBY and dab on them to establish just how powerful he is now
>>136103295in the same way as a normal image.
>Volume 12>Ruby winds up deliberately summoning the gods back>Tells them that humanity doesn't want them back and to take all magic this timeaway from Remnant>Gods are a bit taken aback but wind up obliging saying they had a better experiment elsewhere. >Decide to fix the moon for free on their way out>Salem loses her immortality and magic powers, everyone loses their semblances, maidens and relics no longer have power, dust and aura no longer work.>Remnant now basically a post-apocalyptic world trying to rebuild using non-magic stuff.>In time over thousands of years Remnant becomes identical to Earth where all the characters have now become fairy tales for us. >Show ends with a shot of animated Monty talking with Miles and Kerry at a restaurant, rubbing ketchup into a napkin making the map of Remnant.
>>136103293Anon, the Jabberwalker is absolutely a threat, or else RWBY would have styled on the lot of them like they used to do with all the Grimm.It's just that nowadays RWBY sucks at the whole making threats feel like threats.Kind of like how Blake lost to the fat worm thing.
Why does Ruby never use her semblance? I feel like this isn't a new issue. She just never fucking uses it.
>>136103185Alyx's dagger was still in Ever After, her story is guiding RWBY through Ever After, Little's role is to guide Ruby.Oh shit, maybe!
>>136102740That's someone who's ready to fight Batman.
>>136103358Aren't the moms dead? If the fall of Atlas didn't kill them, Ruby did
>>136103381Oh no... is attack of titan... AGAIN!
>>136103039His goal is to achieve ascension. When he dies surrounded by flames he will be reborn from his very ashes. Donning shining gilded armor. After all, what use is a Rusted Knight? When the time comes for change we must change.
>>136103418Casserole mom specifically didn't get killed as far as we know.
>>136102747Off-screeen sex with Ever After inhabitants.
>>136103219Probably saving his solo fight for one of the climax points. There's no use showing him off if the scene was gonna lead him to flee.
>>136103258How Ironic that Punished Jaune kind of looks like Nicholas.
>this show is hell>it's still cochise addicting with how worse it continues to get>you can't take your eyes off it no matter what>the Fandom makes it even more hell>even the critic Fandom is hellAbsolute nightmare
>>136103474He absolutely obliterated that teapot lady...
>>136103433>Salem also voices CortanaDo you think she watched when Ozma slept with other women?
I used to really love this show. I fell in love with the animation in V1-3 because it was fun and I could ignore a dumb story for jokes, cool fights, and fun times. Volumes 4 and 5 made it boring to watch both in story in animation and made me almost quit. And then RT. Fucking RT. They gave me straight liquid hopium with V6-8. Say what you will but those I feel had cool fights and made the story fun and exciting again. Now that I got that, it's fucking stripped from me again with this boring-as-shit volume, and with the knowledge that the show is dead after it's done. Fuck everyone at RT management that caused this man. I just wanted a fun damn show now I just watch my favorite show from my literal teenage years slowly fester and die
>>136103536Man, I was very confused for a second
>>136103563I don't know how auto correct went with that as well.Phonefagging rn
>>136103201Why is she a shitskin now?
When is Neo gonna lesbian rape Ruby?
>>136102753>Neo will die and thanks to the power of Wonderland she will restart to become Trivia.I don't think it's a coincidence they talked about ascension in the same episode Jaune appears. Now add the flames surrounding him in the opening. And you get the feeling Jaune will also die. To me, it looks like they're trying to build up toward both Jaune and Neo dying and ascending to be reborn. They might not keep their memories but their hearts will.
>pre episode threads>1 or 2 threads every 2 days>jaune episode>4 threads todayI thought Jaune didn't carry bros...
>>136103201I need more fanfart.
>>136103627She'll be riding jaunes DILF dick infront of ruby to cause her more trauma.
>>136103628I think it's possible that Jaune *already* "died" and ascended, and something similar will happen to Ruby.
>>136103165I want Jaune to jump around the Everafter with Juniper.
>Pyrrha>the Atlas milfs>Blake>All of them after JauneSee, I knew this was a harem anime
>>136103628>They might not keep their memories but their hearts will.Cancel the show, if that happens. Now. Retconning Roman Holiday out of existence from her memories is an insult.It's one of the very few good narratives this IP has gotten since its inception.Not to mention the last good RWBY thing since the pandemic started.
>>136103705>Roman HolidayLiterally who
Jaune needs to unleash his Tarnished skills.
How long until Jaune brutally rapes Neo into submission?
>DILF Jaune begins fucking Neo, Blake, and Weiss>Yang is smiling watching her hopefully soon to be girlfriend fuck someone else>"look at how happy everyone is Ruby">"y-Yeah... nice">Jaine looks over to Ruby>"I killed penny by the way, sorry">"oh...">"see Ruby? Happy times">A gunshot is heard as Ruby killed herself
>>136103094Based. Schnee women are for older men.
>>136103276The alternative is Jaune forever feeling victimized and aggrieved by her, filling him with feelings of resentment. Living like that is actually cucked.
>>136103629One of Jaune's reveal videos already has 52k views in less than 12 hours. In comparison on the same channel RWBY talking to their past selves is at 115k views after a week. Jaune just fucking kills it when it comes to views.
>>136103766Yo who the fuck drew that Weiss and Jaune. Made my cock throb instantly.
>>136103276Bro, I'm pretty sure a decade or so is enough for Jaune to somewhat move on. It's time for Jaune to forgive Cinder and become a "true warrior".
>>136103766I don't know man. This age gap. It feels weird now.Plus Weiss is a massive bitch. She will never be this kind to Jaune.
>>136103770Or he could just kill her.
>>136103282>not a character worth writing as a personThat's how they treat every character, intentionally or notThey're all nothing but tropes and surface level conceptsThey don't have any where near enough understanding how stories work to have anything deeper. Even outside of rwby, the RT heads have always seemed like particularly shallow people in general and still just riding the coattails of their early success. People that have never experienced depth or growth would of course have no idea how to create it.So instead they just pluck the easiest to execute idea their fans come up with and pander, or try to retell basic fucking stories while failing horribly while trying to make it different enough to not outright plagiarize.
>>136103705It is the cheapest way to redeem her so of course RT would do it, overcoming her past is going to be used as the driving force behind her ascension.
>You killed her>I had no choice>Thats crazy>We needed Winter to stop Cinder it was Pennys plan>Well that doesnt mean you had to do it>I didnt want to I panicked I forced myself>Jaune>You werent there you dont know how serious it was>You still shouldnt have killed her>It was suicide Ruby>It was wrong>Yes it was but it happened Im sorry but there was no other way>There had to be>*Sigh* If that makes you feel better than I guess I didnt see that way>Jaune wai>No Weiss let her feel nice shes been having an awful time lately >.....
>>136103744Hey at least that vibrational function in her arm is going to be useful for something.
>Start watching Judgmental Critter's "What Ruined RWBY?" video>Starts mentioning the exact same arguments that we have posted over and over again here, regarding the RWBY hivemind and their SOULLESS dialogueOh, crap. Another RWBY critic that drops here!? First the fixing RWBY guy, then Calxiyn, and now even her? Am I missing someone else? Wouldn't be surprised if Vexed Viewer also drops here. Well, fine whatever. I wasn't thinking of becoming a RWBYtuber critic myself, along many others here, and I suppose it's always welcome to spread this arguments around the Internet. It does kinda suck a bit that they are copy pasting our arguments though.
>>136103418Was Casserole Mom in Argus or in Mantle/Atlas?Argus is a part of Mistral, so if she's there she's probably fine.
>Blake realizing she wrote 50,000 words of smutfic about Jaune when she was 13
>>136103885Atlas shes dead
>>136103883>watching rwby youtubersNigotry.
>>136103766Oh but of course Weiss will call him daddy.
>>136103860I swear, if they have anything close to this conversationAfter Ruby fucking instantly forgave EMERALD
>>136103676If that was the case he wouldn’t remember team RWBY at all. Also I’m wondering if Curious is actually dead.
>>136103911Willow will too.
>>136103891>Blake masturbated multiple times thinking about Jaune
>>136103676It could. But from what we have seen so far the EA has an aversion to damaged, old, or lost individuals. The Red was turned into a Prince, not another King. Herb was eaten by the ground because he lost sight of his purpose after so long. With those things in mind, why would Jaune be the Rusted Knight, something synonymous with old age and past its prime? And not the Shining Knight instead? I think the culmination for Jaune in this volume is gonna be being reborn and shedding away his rust.
>>136103936The cat can either teleport or become invisible. It'll be fine. The bird is probably dead for real.
There is nothing wrong with dating older men!
>>136103786Jaune unironically is carrying this volume right now. Team RWBY is shit and everyone got over Neo’s landing/semblance evolution quickly. Now all I wonder is how they handle the Penny reveal now that to him that happened years ago.
>>136103936Why not? The Red Prince remembered the Red King didn't he? And his hatred of humans after Alyx. Maybe Jaune remembered "Team RWBY" and "Juniper" but not much else. He never said their names, after all.>>136103961Also a good possibility.
>>136103951"Multiple times" is a polite way to say "twice a day for two years."
>>136102712I LOVE WOOBY!
>>136104041What IS Wooby?
>>136104021Her body language us horny here too
>>136103883>Another RWBY critic that drops hereIn that video she mentions the harassment and bullying in the fandom. It's probably the anonymity this place offers that attracts loads of RWBY fans, not just critics.>they are copy pasting our arguments Actually I usually copy paste their arguments here, but without referencing them. RWBYg can like what RWBY critics have to say, just as long as you don't mention the actual critic.
>>136104066Blake's body language is always horny though.
>>136103996You know what fair. There are some people (even an anon here) pointing out just how impersonal Jaune sounded when addressing team RWBY, so maybe it is that. The schizo theory is that either this is a corrupted or fake Jaune because of that scene and the opening showing the book burning.Verification not required.
Edit Daddy Jaunes hair white now any lewds with him and Weiss look like BIG NICH fucking his granddaughter
>>136103705>Cancel the show, if that happens. Now.>Retconning Roman Holiday out of existence from her memories is an insult.>It's one of the very few good narratives this IP has gotten since its inception.>Not to mention the last good RWBY thing since the pandemic started.I don't know bro. As much as I like Neo and RH and I really do I don't want them to kill her off. And easily redemption sounds like the best scenario for her all things considered. Seeing as how the moment they come back they'll have to juggle at least 2 dozen characters and the main plot I think it's safe to say they won't be able to fuck with her character too much. Plus as a SKfag, It leads to the possible creation of a friendship between my favorite characters.
>>136103961>being reborn and shedding away his rustProbably. We have been assuming the fire that burns the book before the knight appears in the OP is a bad and/or menacing sign, but it might be Jaune being released from being the Rusted Knight
>>136104066Deep down, Blake always knew. Her faunus breeding instincts are strong.
>>136103883Or you know the flaws of the show have become so apparent that anyone criticizing RWBY will spout the same thing because the show has done NOTHING to correct its mistakes.
>>136104185vinland saga sucks ass dude
>>136104176>Her body naturally reacting to the sight of knight Jaunehow so that's why she couldn't hide her excitement.
So do you guys go to Twitter or forums to find new rwby art?
Seraphina is watching V9 right now btw, highly recommend her blog.
>>136104251Where else are people supposed to go?
>>136104248>writers know the show is canceled after this volume >wrap it up with Jaune/Team RWBY harem ending as a giant middle finger to everyone>post-credits scene is Salem using the Relics to summon the gods, who destroy Remnant
>>136103961I honestly don't know if MKEK see trying to go for a deeper level of storytelling with the ascension, rebirth, and identify concepts in this volume. Or are just stumbling ass-backwards into a halfway decent story.
Lets fix the timelineVolume 11 month laterVolume 24 months laterVolume 32 years laterThis timeskip explains how Ruby and JNPR jumped in power levelVolume 42 months laterVolume 53 months laterVolume 61 week laterVolume 71 month laterVolune 84 days laterVolume 9
>>136104250Why didn't Ruby just pick everyone up and use her Semblance to escape instead of leaving the cat to die?
>>136104278I dunno, Discord?
>>136104365>4 days later>Volume 9 for RWBY and Neo>25 years later>Volume 9 for Neo and Jaune
>>136103560The show was simply too big for RT to handle. They didn't have the capacity or quality to make a good show of it. Monty really should have taken his idea to other, bigger and more professional studios. But he was too much of a buddy with RT. I also think they and Monty didn't expect RWBY to become popular so quickly.
>>136103618Tbf some pieces of concept art and even merch (her Funko pop for instance) portrays her with a slightly darker skin color for some reason
>>136102753>for the best character in the series.She was good as Roman's ridiculously competent henchmen, she was mostly cool because of the Monty fights and shouldn't have been brought back post volume 3.
>>136103786>Increased interest and viewership thanks to Jaune showing up and the plot actually progressingOn the off chance that this saves the show and V10 actually gets greenlit, MKEK will somehow learn the absolute worst possible lesson from this, guaranteed.
>>136104185>>136104263Stop it with the Vinland Saga replies anon. You're making me genuinely excited for Jaune's story arc in this volume. And I don't want to be disappointed. As a Jaunefag the bar is really low but your making reimagining cool shit.
>>136103282>she's just a random grunt and a plot devicethat's true, that's what she is. She's like that white fang guy with the chainsaw, only you jack off to her.
>oh shiiiiit they're still sexy teenagers.gifJaune gets a lucky break finally
>>136104464Let an anon dream brother. If rooster teeth isn't clever enough to at least show how Jaune has progressed over the years, Vinland Saga is the best alternative inspiration than whatever RoosterTeeth has in store.
>>136104493Would BONESAW have been ready to fix everything?
Lets fix the villainsSalem is the head of the headSalem would have underlings lets call them lords. Lords would administrate all the members of the organization in a large territory like continent sized.Then under the lords are Commanders these administrate within a Lords Domain. Lets say Cinder is a commander in charge of a section of the Vale continent she has an unseen ally also on the continent as another commanderBelow the commanders are the Captains who lead the General Officers that lead the Officers
>>136104567What is everything?
>>136104534The whole Everafter feels like an alternate dimension with it's own set of laws. Perhaps the Everafter has no destined death?
>>136104457Any anons know of any series with a similar situation to what we have now? A side character reveal/moment that completely overshadows the main cast because it’s actually interesting/moves the plot along?
>>136104600The show, the world, the issue of those fucking Faunus?
>>136104534>I wonder if Pyrrha would be flooding the world if she saw me right now
>>136103961EA is actually Logan's Run?
>>136103911who's the artist?
The organization created by Salem is extremely old and began with humans who wanted to worship and idolize her. Im still on the fence whether Lords should be human.
>>136104446While you're probably right about the end of the episode, she talked after this moment when she could have easily escaped with everyone.
>>136104420>Monty really should have taken his idea to other, bigger and more professional studios.Let's be real, no fucking studio at the time would have greenlight RWBY. It's a sad conundrum but without RT this show wouldn't exist.
>>136104698He might have a wife and kids for all we know.
>>136104464>Stop it with the Vinland Saga replies anon. You're making me genuinely excitedlmaoExcited for garbage?
>>136104752>inb4 Totally NOT Pyrrha
The fuck is the point of those suns if the sky brightness changes randomly?
>>136104752Doubt it. All of the denizens of the Everafter are basically game pieces or some other non human creature. Would be based of Rooster Teeth to include a monster girl though.
>>136104721It's so odd that Salem got off to ruling humanity as God Queen and just never bothered to start a cult or two in her name after the divorce.
>>136104771>inb4 Summer>Jaune is Ruby's literal daddy
>people are horny for punished Jauneso this was RT's angle? interesting...
Lords cant be human since they are meant to be unchangeable like demon lords in isekai so lords are former hunans that were corrupted by Salem or some bullshit.
>Entire plot of the show wouldnt even be happening if Salem would stop being so lazyBros, I think they made Salem too OP for her setting...
>>136104849Salem is as lazy as Gideon Ofnir. Would rather sit and give out quests rather than getting shit done by herself.
>>136104251Make your own. use AI.
Is Jaune a harem protag?
>Ruby needed to give up Penny's sword for the team.>Ruby needed to give up her last memento of her mom for the team.When is it WBY's turn to give up something for Ruby?
>>136104943Always has been.
om nom nom
>>136104974The leader is always shackled with responsibilities and burdens
>>136104943Jaune had always been a shonen/isekai protag who got lost and ended up a supporting character instead of the mc of his own show.
Weiss is 17 right? Thats pretty much a woman
>>136105051WBY are 19. Ruby is 17.
>>136105011What does it taste like?
>>136105051I think WBY all should be like 19 now? Since it’s been about two years or so since vol 1 I think they said and Ruby is 16.
God I miss seeing Weiss act cock hungry
>>136105051From Jaune's perspective she's like 47 and happens to still look like a teenager.
>16 minute episodeWhat the heck
>>136105085Jaune's cum. The entire world is built on it. He had all the time in the world to jerk off to whatever his mind could think of.
>>136105251Yeah these next 5 episodes are going to need to be lengthy if we are gonna get anywhere.Verification not required.
>Jaune has a clean up scene and shaves>RWBY faint and orgasm on the spot
Are 20 minute episodes too hard for Rooster Poop?
when will the stupid rat be useful
>They just killed off the CatWow
>>136104725>Ruby uselessly running aroundScene was kinda trash, but it really didn't need to be.
>>136105389No they didn't
>>136105364Anon, Little is the only one that's trying to care for Ruby's well-being.
>>136103430>Ruby, what a woman you are
All i wanted was Arkos. And what did I get? 10 years of pain. And now this.For real though - as cool as this development is it’s also such a death sentence for Jaune. How does he come back from this? No amount of ending will be happy enough to account for all of the shit he has had to go through. Just seems so doomed for his character.
>>136105456>a fucking mouse cares about Ruby than her own teamThe absolute state of WBY, I can't take it anymore with this shit writing.
Why should anyone care about Ruby?
>>136105612because she has a nice ass
>>136105467He will endure, and became all the stronger for it.
Lancasterbros, I still have hope, keep the faith.
Wait, I get it now. Little is Crescent Rose.
>>136104953I still can't tell how old he's supposed to be. Without the beard, he just looks like a depressed and lost, mid to late twenty-year-old.
>>136103065I think it's fair to say the average RWBY fanfic writer puts more thought into their stories than the real writing staff does.
>>136105566being fair.The mouse doesn't know her all that well yet.
>>136105467Same. It's like the writers are going out of their way to spite anyone who ever enjoyed the series or characters for no reason other they're assholes.
>>136105456Why is that fucking mouse still here?They're not eating screentime or anything, but they hasn't done anything but be cute. I almost forget they's still here.Is that grammatically correct for a they pronoun person? "they hasn't"?? "they's still here"???
>>136105854"They haven't"/"they're." It's the same as the plural "they." Same as when you use "they" just because you don't know what gender someone is.
>>136105467Its not fair my fellow Arkos enjoyer...
>>136105854It'll probably be some convenient dues ex machina at the finale.
>>136105941We'll never forgive, never forget.
>Oh shit, I have to get away, can't afford to lose this macguffin!>Should I turn and run with my super speed in the opposite direction?>No, I'll turn into petals and float TOWARDS the threat and slowly fly around in circles!
>>136105993! B A S E D !
>>136106021It looked like she was trying to nutmeg the Jabberwalker to get past it to where the cat was, but it predicted her path and knocked her out of her Semblance with its tail.
>>136105993Only faggots consider anything post Monty canon, and he's dead so not even he gets a say.
>>136105681He became stronger for what?I mean yeah, it's a nice sentiment. At the same time though, that sort of idealism hit's bit of a bitter reality red-pill. He's never had a standout moment where he's actually made a difference, and the world is still on the steady course of destruction. I'm sure plot armor will turn things around, but I see that happening for team RWBY. I really don't see how you create a convincing narrative that pulls Jaune back from the brink.>>136105848I both respect it but also hate it. I would respect it if they would commit to the tragedy, but the problem is that we all know they're going to try and use some idealism to try and turn things around.And that's the problem, I think things are so FUBAR for Jaune it's just not possible. The mere attempt to paint over the shit Jaune's gone through would never fly.>>136105903ur shit taste>>136105941>>136105979We remain, we faithful few, to the sunken ship of Arkos.
>>136106187Yeah, V3's ending hit the Too Bleak, Stopped Caring and sank like a boulder.
>>136106148We all know Monty would've had some epic plot of Jaune somehow saving Pyrrha from the clutches of death in some contrived Dead Fantasy bullshit way.
So, if they were going to use the Jabberwock to perma-kill Salem, how exactly would they pull that off? We don't know if these creatures can exist or still have their abilities outside of ever-after, so that may mean their only option is to bring Salem to the Jabberwock. Well, unless somehow Neo's semblance somehow bypasses this.
>>136106257Nah, Monty fully wanted Pyrrha to be the Aerith to Jaune’s Cloud in true FF fashion.
>>136106235huh, pretty appropriate for RWBY
>>136106235Nah, not V3. It's just been the steady grind of following the show and getting disillusioned about everyone outside of RWBY getting a good ending. Not Penny or her dad, got doubts for Winter now that she's a maiden, Nora and Ren are on a break, etc...Jaune particularly, and hoo boy Jaunefags get blown up all the time for shit, but really what does he have to look forward to? Dude's basically barreling towards the "I suffered the most and all I got was this crummy t-shirt" sorta ending where he's basically faking mental stability at the annual celebratory get-together so not to ruin the evening.
>>136106319RWBY's problem is that it tried way too hard to be serious, it wanted to be the new Full Metal Alchemist, but instead it just crashed and burned. There's a big reason why RWBY was pretty popular in Japan at first, and then it shriveled up and died after V3.
>>136106235>V3's ending hit the Too Bleak, Stopped CaringjesusGo watch some fluffy SoL or something. Only one semi-relevant character even died.
>>136106316>>136106268Monty posted that during the dance arc so he totally meant it had no possible relation to Arkos what-so-ever. :^]
>>136106316Except there's no Tifa for him to end up with. Ending up with Weiss wouldn't be satisfying desu and besides, RT are too cowardly to have him end up with anyone else.Death is literally all her has to look forward to now.
>>136106288Fight her, blow her up into gibs and ash, stuff her into a jar. Go back into Ever After, find Jobberwalker, beat him down senseless, and stuff Salem down his throat before she can reform. Or hell, just toss the jar into the Ever After and let her be stuck in the story forever, not like she'll ever learn her lesson and reach the tree.
>>136106380>Full Metal AlchemistAlso for fucks sakes FMA is incredibly idealistic and things go VERY well for the heroes at nearly every step of the way after the initial shock of the first 10 chapters. Like holy shit that finale is cotton-candy levels of corny.And that's not to say it's bad, but like, if you're seeking to recreate FMA and you miss the mark this badly...
>>136106319There was a book I was "required" to read in US History called A Cool Million, but it was so damn depressing that I just didn't read it and said I did.
>>136106430Yeah, I thought that too until I remembered that Salem's regen is highly variable. According to Hazel, it can be as long as hours or short as a few minutes. Unless they just get a bunch of people to keep killing salem. Maybe just have a ton of bombs to blow her up over and over again.
>>136106447ok quick correction, I was being way dramatic... not the first 10 chapters but like still. The point is that FMA never got as bleak as RWBY is. I say that with a straight face. RWBY doesn't have the body horror but it also doesn't have any of the momentary victories that gave readers a hint of the victory that was going to come.
Can a drawfag doodle old man Jaune being fucking pissed because the blue bird who sells mud cookies (the closest thing to actual) food is perma dead now?
>>136106380>serious>Full Metal AlchemistMaybe (2003)
Since Death Battle is a RT show, shouldn't all discussion move here?
>>136106501>"What do you mean the mud cookies guy is dead!?">"Jaune, you know there was shit in those cookies, right?">"That's what gave them their flavor, Weiss"
>>136106501Would Pyrrha like the hair? I like it
Ruby was the most fun during volumes 1-3. But damn did they do almost nothing with any of the character background snippets the gave us.Pyrrha got screwed over the most with that if you ask me. For her celebrity status they dont really do anything with it. >I'm so lonely!And that's about it. No development where she grows a spine and tells paparazzi to fuck off, no hijinks with Jaune having a big name like Pyrrha being on his team of nobodies. Fucking NOTHING!
>>136102712>>136103628>>136102753>>136103196>>136103061>>136102812I don't think all of you idiots need to be so dramatic about the "ascension". My guess is that Ruby and Neo will "fall" into the Ever After together, during their final showdown, and former will help the latter to not get lost during the "ascension process", while rebalancing her mind. Probably we will see their memories of Summer, Penny, and Roman while they are being "cleansed", and maybe also V1 Rubes and Trivia (or pink Neo), as manifestations of their troubled minds. This is the reason why Lindsay is so knowledgeable about Neo. Also, check over again the lyrics of Inside, which is Trivia/Neo's song. Hope the visuals and animation for that scene don't suck though, because it will be a very important scene for both.The problem is Jaune. I'm not sure if he already went over this "ascension" process or not. If he hasn't, he will go back into being young Jaune, but if he already went through it, then yeah, he's staying as an old man. That's what bothers me so much.
>>136106475Legitimately, that sort of scene would be great, but the problem is we'll never get that: the writers would make Jaune's angst nonexistent and expect us to believe that. Fuck no he's sneaking pills in the bathroom after getting a depressive episode after Ren + Nora's 3rd toddler accidentally knocked over a wine glass and he watched Blake and Yang have a huge french kiss while the gang was discussing their future plans, the houses that will be built, how nice it is to settle down, how soundly they sleep, etc.
>>136106576Yeah well Pyrrha got screwed at inception. Everyone else was selected for the awesome save-the-world schooltrip but she was singled out not go. Nah instead she got to be killed at the ripe age of 17 because muh Jaune angst.
>>136106576>Pyrrha got screwed over the most with that if you ask me. For her celebrity status they dont really do anything with it. >>I'm so lonely!>And that's about it. No development where she grows a spine and tells paparazzi to fuck off, no hijinks with Jaune having a big name like Pyrrha being on his team of nobodies. Fucking NOTHING!JNPR aren't main characters.
>Ruby lashes out at old man Jaune for killing Penny>he calmly lets her have it and then destroys her with facts and logic
>>136106678Neo ain't a main character. Neither is Cinder. Or Salem. Or Ozpin. Or Oscar. Or Penny. Or Jaune for that matter. You don't get how writing works. Ever read anything outside of teen books? Catch-22, maybe??Main characters aren't the be-all-end all and don't need to be - and I would argue - shouldn't be the entire focus of a story.
>>136106501If MKEK does decide on having Jaune be killed and reborn again, then I wonder if his hair is gonna stay the same or if its gonna revert back to the banana haircut.
>>136106720>he calmly lets her have it and then destroys her with facts and logicYou're setting yourself for disappointment anon.
>>136106803Right. What's more likely is team RWBY will gang up on the poor old man who's glad to see them again.I wish that was a shitpost and not genuine concern.
>>136106592cont. Now that I think about it, even if that scene happens and it is well executed, it still doesn't solve the problems that I have previously pointed out in V9.1. Why the fuck did WBY also fell, when Ruby, Jaune, and Neo could have carried better by themselves the Ever After storyline? These three stooges get in the way of the interactions and development of people that are actually mourning someone. Imagine Ruby and Neo interacted, cooperated and fought multiple times through the entire volume. And then have their mutual "ascension" scene as the climax to wrap up neatly their intertwined V9 storylines. Jaune would be the neutral figure that would guide and help both when needed, and in a sense, their Ever After mentor.2. V9's main theme shouldn't be a about having an identity crisis, rather it should be focusing on these 3 getting over the loss a beloved one. Because that's what actually fits better the central theme of the series, and the knowledge gained from the moral they learn in the Ever After, could be used against Salem.These are such basic storytelling mistakes and missed opportunities. The "ascension" proposal is fine, but the approach and a fuck ton of unneccesary content and fat brings down the execution of the ideas... and the volume as a whole.
As this volume's mascot, you'd think that Little would be a little more involved instead of only appearing to say her two lines per episode
>>136106955I think she's getting the right amount of screentime for a mascot. We've had enough side characters who get too much focus and detract from the main plot.
>>136106736>Neo ain't a main character. Neither is Cinder. Or Salem. Or Ozpin. Or Oscar. Or Penny. Or Jaune for that matter. Cinder, Jaune, and Oscar are main characters now though. JNPR was about as relevant as CFVY. >You don't get how writing works. Ever read anything outside of teen books? Catch-22, maybe??For whatever reason, you've started seething so quickly that your brain has stopped functioning. RWBY was a webshow with extremely short episodes (that are now just short), not a fucking novel lmaoScreentime is limited (and used to be worse), so it shouldn't be wasted on side characters like JNPR. That's one of the reasons Jaundice sucked. Not that RT doesn't find ways to waste screentime regardless.
>>136106678>>136106736Jaune is 100% a main character, possibly more of a main character than WBY. Pyrrha was a main character when she was alive. Ren and Nora are side characters who exist to fill out the team.
>>136107013>Pyrrha was a main character when she was aliveIn her last moments, you mean.
>people really arguing that Jaune isn't the main characterNext you'll say Martin Septim isn't the main character in the Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion.
>>136107013Jaunefags actually believe this kek
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEzKW7-u4EIHere's Jobber's song. Considering they also brought up that he permakills, will our jobber pull one kill (considering what we got were Neo illusions so unknown if they count)?
>>136107088Reminded that every interaction RWBY has had with the general populace has ended in disaster
>Jaune need to age 20+ years for me to get him with long hairdamn
>>136107088I'm not really a stan of any particular character. >>136107051Jaune has said more lines in total than Blake. Pyrrha had almost as many in the volumes she was in. I don't think anyone would argue Blake is a side character.
>>136107151>I don't think anyone would argue Blake is a side character.
>>136106985>>136106736>CFVY.>NeoAdd also Roman into the equation, and as much as it hurts WBYfags to admit it, Myers's MCs have been better protags than RWBY in the actual show. Blame MKEK for thos though. Speaking here as a former Weiss and Yang fag. Also, Jaune shouldn't be in theory a MC, but he constantly overshadows the titular MCs, especially WBY. Oscar is also another character that isn't an actual MC, but overshadows team RWBY as a whole.Yes, RWBY in theory and paper, are the titular MCs. But when it comes to execution, Jaune, Oscar, CFVY, Neo, and Roman have outperformed team RWBY at being MCs.
>>136102740There should be beard under the nose too
>>136106985>Jaune main character now>durrr Jaundice badbro I doubt you even watched all of jaundice to even bother understanding why it was so important to Jaune and Pyrrha's characters. RWBY is still a story. Storytelling principals still apply even if you want to be single-cell moron about it. Imagine arguing for applying the lowest quality for your storytelling experience.Supporting characters can matter, as you sheepishly admit by saying "Cinder, Jaune and Oscar are main characters now though". Your point about JNPR being supporting characters is pointless by that admission that minor supporting characters suddenly became major characters with major storylines.
>>136107185He has a crustache
>RWBY villainize a guy for making them reflect on their actions
Is Jaune in the volume yet?
>>136107235Not to mention that they (especially Yang) were assholes to him the entire time
>>136107185He has facial hair like mine. Full beard but a lame teenage looking mustache, so I stay clean shaven because a beard with no mustache just makes you look like a basement dweller or Civil War general.

>>136107411>Jaune’s reveal has been the most activity rwbyg has seen in a long time.NTA, but yeah, because MKEK probably fucked him up forever. Half of the posts have been making fun of or criticizing the time dilation twists (which MKEK took too far) that everyone saw coming two years ago.
>Jaune episode is the first V9 episode to reach 1k comments on Reddit threadThe Power of Jaune
We have to wait a week for more Jaune
Wait a minute...What was the point of keeping WBY small for so long? This volume is based off the characters following the book. They could have just ordered RWBY to go to the locations they went to (the caterpillar and the market) because the book is forcing them to (like they did Crimson Castle).Them staying short after the chess game doesn't seem to have served a purpose...I think?
>>136107392Why the fuck does anyone use datura? Every single person I know who's tried it has a story like this and none of them enjoyed it
>>136107487>the first episode where something actually happens is the first V9 episode to reach 1k comments on Reddit thread
>>136107650I mean, they had a drug trip in the episode before. That was a thing.
>>136107656That could have caused something to happen but didn't because the cat deus ex'd them out of having to deal with their problems
>>136107613You're putting more thought into this than the writers themselves
>>136107613>Wait a minute...What was the point of keeping WBY small for so long?Someone's fetish.
so if neo took advantage of the commotion to replace ruby with herself what is she gonna do next fake her own death by falling off the bridgewhat about the real ruby, what is she gonna do with her
>>136107656Yeah, a drug trip that amounted to WBY announcing to the audience that they already had their character arcs while Ruby hasn't and then got interrupted by the cat, truly riveting stuff.
>>136107756This is dumb. Why would Neo comfort Weiss or do Pikachu face at Jaune?
>>136104146>I don't want them to kill her off.>Plus as a SKfag, It leads to the possible creation of a friendship between my favorite characters.First of all, Neo/Trivia is likely going to be fine. Relax. The opening spoils that she's nervous about her ascension, but let's be honest, Rubes will likely end up helping her, because Jaune NTRing Ruby again from getting an important season finale scene would trigger so many of her fans, again. Ruby is also the target of Neo's revenge, and Rube's existential crisis is mostly the focus of this volume, not Jaune's. So it will be Rubes who helps Neo and be by her side during their "ascensions".In my opinion, it would work much better if the climactic "ascension" scene is just between Ruby and Neo/Trivia, but there's an issue. Jaune being stuck as someone is his mid-forties (or older) for what remains of the story just doesn't convince me. The problem is that I would rather have him deaged, which means he needs to go through the ascension. If he already did, then I dunno, he needs to get younger through another method. Him being the third wheel during Ruby and Neo/Trivia's ascension would solve this, but him being a third wheel in that scene would also kinda suck.Also, by god, if they don't deage him, it's going to be super weird if they are planning to have SK interactions, before they eventually face Cinder. Jaune being the old tutor, and Neo/Trivia the younger student or companion. Like what the fuck? Who was asking for this crazy subversion? Them getting along is a neat idea with potential, but suddenly putting a 20-year age gap between both... who thought this was a good idea? Only way not deaging Jaune would be a good move, is if JNO and Emerald also got older back in Vacuo.
>>136107510I know Anon. It’s gonna be a long wait.
>>136107756If Neo is impersonating Ruby she can't simultaneously be holding her captive, unless she has a henchman.The Ever After itself is after Ruby. The cat just told us that this world swallows people who don't know their purpose, and right afterward Ruby and Little, the two characters who don't know their purpose, got isolated from everyone else and accosted. If that's actually Neo, I'm willing to bet the real Ruby is having another visit to the blacksmith.
>>136107811The amount of cope from this post is hilarious. Neo's dying anon. I truly hope you're memeing
>>136102833I think that's just the lighting. He's probably only like 10 years older.
>>136102873ONE LINE AND ALL YOU FAGGOTS KEEP REPEATING THE SAME SHIT.
>>136103505What if when Jaune goes back to the real world... He goes back to the past and meets Weiss's grandmother...
>>136102873Weiss has more self-control that the cat in heat.
>>136107848He has the creases under his eyes that the show consistently uses to identify older people, since the art style makes it hard to identify age otherwise. He's drawn similarly to RWBY's parents (except Tai who has a baby face), so I'm willing to bet he's at least 40. I doubt he knows himself though, since the Ever After probably doesn't have years or seasons that line up with the normal world.
>>136107811Neofags and Jaunefags are not coming out of this volume happy, are they?
>>136103744I'd prefer the opposite where Ruby has a mental breakdown and kills everyone.>>136107892They could also just be bags under his eyes from his shitty life.
>>136107908Honestly, who's coming out happy with this volume? BBfags maybe.
>>136107886The next episode needs to be a Game of Thrones-style exposition dump. Jaune explains everything that's happened to him while casually balls deep in Blake, and RWY watch uncomfortably but nobody dares to mention it.
>>136107844>Neo's dying anon. I truly hope you're memeingIdiot. You don't die in the Ever After. Lindsay already spoiled that Ruby will tag with Neo, during her ascension. Both will undergo the process, because their minds are screwed up and the Ever After could help at rebalancing them. Also, "Inside" lyrics are sung from Neo/Trivia's perspective, as she's undergoing the ascension.https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/135638298/#q135645030https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/135638298/#q135645044

>>136107962Dude, Qrow early 40s
>>136107908In Neo's case, it really depends on how well (or badly) her ascension scene is executed. I hope they make it corny and cutesy, to be honest. Like Ruby hugging her, or grabbing her hand, as they both get "ascended", and see each others' memories passing by.As for Jaune, it's really up to the time dilation on Vacuo's side, if aging him up a lot was a good idea or not. I don't want Jaune to be the 3rd boomer of the main travelling group (along Qrow and Maria). But if the rest of his team will be way older than RWBY by the time they return to Remnant, then fine, keep him old.
>>136107946>>136107848>No way is he just 29. That's not an "old man".Jaune's hair streaks make it obvious that he's around Qrow or Ironwood's age. In-universe, you need to be as old as them to get those.
>>136107986Will Jaune want to leave? Blake said that in the book, the Rusted Knight was so depressed his suit of armor rusted shut and he couldn't move. That's clearly not true anymore, so that suggests he's found a new purpose. At this point he's lived in the Ever After longer than Remnant, and way longer than he knew RWBY. Good chance he now considers it his home and ends up staying behind (after helping them escape and Ruby face her repressed issues.) It's like meeting your best friends from college who you haven't seen since; you'd be excited to see them and catch up, but you're in a very different place in life now.
>>136108041Saving Remnant is a pretty big motivator
>>136108060More like a demotivator lmao
>>136108060It seems like he's found a similar role protecting the people of the Ever After though, and is now very good at it. Why would he abandon that to go back to Remnant? What does he specifically bring to the fight against Salem?
>>136108041That's why I'm way more afraid for what they are planning to do with Jaune, than with Neo. The latter has an entire subliminal OP song with spoilers, plus Lindsay spilling the beans about Ruby learning a lot about Neo. But Jaune is this volume's actual wildcard, in my opinion. I personally want for Jaune and Neo to be among the ones that take down Cinder, but... damn, all this whole "very old Jaune" twist took me by surprise. I was expecting for him to be 5 years older, at most.
>>136108060He had 30 years to return and didn't. Though if team RWBY destroys Ever After I guess he will have no other choice but to return.
>Jaune finds a new purpose and Ascends>loses all his memories>goes back to Remnant with Team RWBY>due to time dilation shenanigans, he ends up back in V1>this explains why he didn't know about very basic things like Aura>he remembers his family and his desire to be a noble hero though, because "the heart remembers"
>>136108103He also probably had an opportunity and declined it at least once before, since Alyx got out and he was with her on her journey.
>>136108103>Though if team RWBY destroys Ever After I guess he will have no other choice but to return.This made me laugh because you know that it's a real possibility.
>>136108112>had an opportunity and declined it at least once beforeduh, he was waiting for his pals
>>136108162For 30 years? Why on earth would he still be expecting them to show up? He probably assumed they died, ended up in a different part of the Ever After, or already got out on their own.
>>136108176>what is hope
>>136108176He said "You finally made it" not "oh shit you're alive"
>>136108155>>136108103>Though if team RWBY destroys Ever After I guess he will have no other choice but to return.Are they going to evacuate everyone in the Ever After to Vacuo... in the middle of a desert storm filled with Grimm?
>Team RWBY spent 30 years in Ever After time falling off the platform>Jaune got a telescope and found them in the sky>he tracked their progress slowly downward over the years until he saw them reach the island
>>136108200For all we know that might help. A bunch of fairy-tale creatures that can break the rules of Remnant's magic system with impunity could either be a huge asset in stopping Salem or a complete disaster.
>>136108200This batch goes to menagerie and starts turning the faunus into animals.
>>136108208This whole time dilation thing is stupid. Why it didn't affect so badly RWBYN?My only guess is that if they are keeping him old, is because the Vacuo cast, and therefore his team, is getting a timeskip.
>>136108222They go to Menagerie in the past and turn the humans there into Faunus, founding the Faunus race.
The Ruby who saw Jaune reveal himself is actually Neo. Neo, as Ruby, will then appear to kill herself by falling off a bridge, as shown in the OP. This will leave WBY in distraught and finally have a chance at a modicum of development or something of interest which I’m confident they would squander. This leaves Ruby alone, with only Little to navigate the Ever After and with nobody expecting to see her again, let alone look for her.
Betting everything on team RWBY destroying Ever After in the finale like they did with Atlas
>>136108219>For all we know that might help.Ah, you're right. Some of them might be turned into valuable food resources, like the bird people.
>>136108233They won’t notice the fact she doesn’t talk at all?
>>136108228There's no way there's that big of a timeskip when they get to Vacuo. They're not going to be able to hold off Salem for 20-30 days, let alone 20-30 years.
>>136108244They didn't notice she's depressed.
>>136108244The real giveaway here is the lack of Little. They’re already neglectful about her depression.
>>136108228Bullshitting here, but Jaune didn't fall off the platform like the rest, he got thrown off just as the pocket dimension was collapsing. Maybe the collapse resulted in being inserted into the Ever After in a different way.
>>136108246>There's no way there's that big of a timeskip when they get to Vacuo. They're not going to be able to hold off Salem for 20-30 days, let alone 20-30 years.But that would mean Jaune now being too old for his team. Fuck. What are they planning to do with him?
>>136108266Either he ascends and becomes young again without his memories, or he chooses to stay in the Ever After. I can't see him returning to Remnant at this age.
>>136108246Remember who Salem's best agents are anon
>>136108275Or Jobberwalker will actually not job for once and pull a kill
I get that Yang wants to make sure the cat gets everything on the list and Blake wants to follow her gfBut why didn't Weiss stay with Ruby? It's fucked up that she decides to leave her depressed friend behind to go with the dykes
>>136108279Salem and her Grimm with two relics can easily bulldoze Vacuo and then the other kingdoms without any incompetent human help. She might not be able to actually summon the gods and destroy the world because Ozpin did something clever to hide the crown, but civilization on Remnant would 100% be in ashes.
>>136108287When has it jobbed? In episode 1 it just took a look at Yang and then walked away without trying to fight, and this episode it wasn't actually the Jabberwalker, just a Neo illusion. I guess it might have lost a fight to Neo, but that wasn't shown on screen.
>>136108296Please understand, nose hair gross
>>136108296She didn't want any nose hair.
>>136108233>I hate Ruby>I’ll attack her team since they’re here with me>I will then impersonate her and fake my own death instead of just killing Ruby whom I’d have to subdue to do to pull this off. for what purpose where is the motive for this
>>136108296Nominally it's because Little was annoying her and she wanted to get away from them for a bit.
>>136108319You still haven't realized after the whole Neo-Cinder-Lamp fiasco that Neo is retarded?
Okay so how are we thinking they do the Penny reveal with Old Jaune?
>>136108319>whom I’d have to subdue to do to pull this off.Why so? We didn't see what happened to the real Ruby. The Jabberwalker could have captured her, or the Blacksmith could have come back again, or she could have got separated or lost and just be hiding somewhere.
>>136108333Penny is dead dead anon. Maiden powers transferred.
>>136108350>Ruby jobs offscreen
>>136108354He means Jaune killing Penny. How will Gramps reveal his deed?
>>136108319>for what purpose>where is the motive for thisDon't you get it anon? It doesn't make sense, which will guarantee that it happens!
>>136108362Well Weiss already knows his deed. And for him it's something that happened more than half his life ago. At this point I don't think this is going to be a major plot point.
>>136108362>How will Gramps reveal his deed?This is gonna become his new nickname, uh?
>>136108381I'm sure Nora will come up with some better ones if he returns to Remnant at this age.
>>136108358It wouldn’t be interesting to see since she doesn’t have a weapon.
>>136108200They aren't real. They don't even believe in death. They'll just dissolve into the ether.
>>136108262>No LittleIf you watch back carefully just after they eat the parfait for the first time, Little screeches and Ruby motions as if she just put something in her back satchel. I think that's supposed to show she put Little in there to keep them safe. It's really janky and badly done but I think that's the intention because Little is gone from that point on.
>>136108402>They don't even believe in death.Death is a concept invented by the Remnants. I don't even know how to spell it.
>>136108388>Little Cute Boy OzpinOld Man Jaune it is then
>>136108420>It's really janky and badly doneLike the entire show.
Damn it while I was sleeping. I almost missed two beautiful artworks by dilf Jaune and Schnee women.I'm sure there will be a lot of fanfiction and art related to this right now!
>>136106316Honestly based on how things went, she sounds more like a Zack to me.
>>136108443As a Neofag, I now rather get WK, over Silent Pedo.
>>136108443Did Monty have old man Jaune in mind when he wanted to make Lancaster canon?
So is Jaune being aged up a good or bad thing for his character? (assuming it's permanent)
>>136102740Now they will do a voltron lance. He just grows old and died alone thinking about Pyrrha XD
>>136108508It depends on his power level.
>>136108499>Did Monty have old man Jaune in mind when he wanted to make Lancaster canon?OF COURSE NOT.>>136108493SK went from everyone reacting to it with "Awww, how cute" to "Ewww, disgusitng".>>136108508Very hard and probably too soon to tell.
>>136102765Y’all know everyone is (except maybe ruby) is above 18 now yeah?Besides, glynda is right there
>Lasst thread unironically had anons being unable to comprehend why Yang wasn't perfectly accommodating to Ruby at the end of v3 or why Ruby apologized to Yang in v5>Framing it in a one is right and one is wrong wayHow are you people this stupid? Have you never gone through challenging times with people who you love and who love you? Is it a case of genuine, unironic autism?
>>136108522>Now they will do a voltron lance. He just grows old and died alone thinking about Pyrrha XDSo instead of ripping off ATLAS's Sokka to write Jaune, they are now going to start ripping off Voltron's Sokka, now?
>>136108523He's as strong as the writers need him to be.He's 100% jobbing to base Neo without any clones though.
>>136108103>Though if team RWBY destroys Ever After I guess he will have no other choice but to return.Classic
>>136104445This. It's called the Fett Effect.
>>136108553Yang saw Ruby pawn Summer's memento and said nothing.
>>136108573WBY being treated as set pieces this volume doesn't have anything to do with what I just said.
>>136108464Neo is literally in her mid 20's, how is that pedo shit?
Still mad that the civilian bird sacrificed himself to save these trained warriors.
>It carries a mother's promiseSince fucking when?
>>136102873blake is a book nerd seeing a fictional character come to life, weiss is a tsundere who wouldnt let her real emotions out in front of the person they like.
>>136103039To die alone thinking about Pyrrha cus RT don’t want him to do anything important or be with anyone of important
>>136107866WK is going to happen whether you like it or not.
>>136108596>tfw Ruby just made that shit up to make it seem more valuable and she has tons of them at home.
>>136108593he didn't sacrifice himself, the cat sacrificed himthen again, you probably don't feel bad for all those chickens you eat, right, hypocrite?
>>136108597Yeah but out of all characters she definitely had the biggest reaction towards the Knight, so it was probably one of her husbandos.
>>136108542He needs MORE beard
>>136108609If the chicken both talked and saved me from getting mugged I'd feel bad for eating it.
>>136106492It also lacks FMA's ability to balance its massive cast. FMA has a pretty substantial cast, almost all of whom are involved in the final battles, but it never feels bloated and it never feels like it forgets who the main characters are.>>136106380RWBY's issue isn't that it tried too hard to be serious. It's that it tried too hard to have the biggest baddest villain ever and accidentally created a fucking nightmare setting when the original intent for Remnant was to be a cool place where cute girls with giant guns fought cool monsters
Neo is for my OC self-insert. With Jaune now out of the way, all that's left to do is get rid of Fox. ARE YOU READING THIS, CALXIYN? YOUR SHIP IS GETTING SUNK NEXT.
>>136108644>If the chicken both talked and saved me from getting mugged I'd feel bad for eating it.What if he tasted really, really good?
>>136108659I haven't actually seen that many OC x Neo art
>>136108659Jaune will kill Neo and she will ascend as Trivia. They will be together like Roman and Neo.
>>136108647>>136106380>2023>Some anons are just finding out how horrible MKEK are compared to actual good anime/manga storytellers.https://youtu.be/aDcW96Q4jLQ
>>136108596Since like, the red trailer. Do you lack the ability to infer things, anonymous? I really hope you're not one of the "show don't tell" fags if you can't.
>>136104341If I Lose it All
Guys, is there an AI that can draw 2 characters together?
>>136108682Oh no I've been saying this for years, but it's just become more and more fucking blatant with this volume. Also this hiatus gave me time to really think about how abjectly fucked Remnant is as a setting. It's kind of hilarious how this show accidentally created such a fucking bleak setting.>>136108589When was the last time they weren't fucking set pieces, to be fair?
>>136108698Slip and fallWill you laugh at me?
>>136107745>All the people expecting Weiss to go crazy over him>Blake instinctually gets horny at him the moment she seems him while Yang allows it like some cuckqueenAnd that somehow is more content than whatever WK got in like two volumes so far.
>>136108684Ah of course. It's now time for fanboys to claim it was all in your face and you are dumb for not seeing it.
>>136108718So do we all agree right? That Blake would cheat first
>>136108592tiny females do not deserve love!
>>136108727Not even a fucking question
>>136108592>Yes, I'm okay with my 20 something daughter marrying 50 something man
>>136108678Kill of and butcher the favorite character, very smart
>>136108727Oh you know it, and Yang would be in the front row to see it
Jaune looks like he smells like low tide and pennies.
>>136108727I could see them legitimately write a cheating arc with Blake and Yang.
>>136108749You would be surprised by often that happens.
>>136108751None of RWBY are dying until the Salem confrontation though.
>>136108770Is not cheating if Yang says yes though, right? They would need to explain how Blake could get a blond child.
>>136108727She would be the first person to step out guaranteed
>>136108592Or early twenties. Still, I don't think most viewers would be fine with having old man Jaune (in his 40s or 50s) getting romantically and sexually paired with... well, a character that looks like the right one in this pic.
>>136108784I was talking about Neo
>I want to be a cat>Also wants to fuck the knightI love how this volume keeps cementing Blake as the weirdo and degenerate of the group.
>>136108796We're not most viewers.
>>136108760Yang: Wow my pussy is flowing because of Jaune.Blake's facial expressions reminded me of this comic
>>136108786Jaune fucking Blake actually makes sense. You get blonde cat faunus instead of a random one like snake if she fucked Sun.
>>136108796Doesn't look prepubescent to me, dude
>>136108796The opinion people haven't seen midgets or shortacks in their lives? is their problem then, that's a more realistic scenario than most of their gay ships lol.
>>136108799>Explicitly did not want to be a cat>Is disgusted the moment Jaune shows his faceAnon?
>>136108824The thing is, why would Blake ever consider be a cat? also she clearly was more shocked at Jaune if anything. Remember they though he was on Remnant.
I assume Jaune got repurposed as the rusted knight which is why he is old. This would be in a similar fashion to how the red king got turned into the red prince.
We know that Blake likes older guys, but does she like old guys too?
>>136108836Wasn't Adam like twice her age when they met? Bet she would have fucked Qrow if she had the chance as well.
Reminder that the age diff between Qrow and Winter is comparable to Old Jaune and Neo and RWBY chibi was fine teasing WxQ
>>136108751>>136108678Read >>136106592Ascension for Neopolitan doesn't equal death, rather Neo/Trivia rebalancing themselves, because right now her id/Neo side is overflowing. Myers already said that she's supposed to be Chaotic Neutral by nature, but that currently her intense desire for revenge turned her into Chaotic Evil. Rubes is likely gonna help Neo calm down and get rid of her id excess.
>>136108853Wasn't Glynda also like in her late 20's and the show didn't shy away from showing Ironwood being attracted to her?
obviously the ever after will spit everyone out at different times. ruby is summer, and thus is her own motherjaune is actually his own dad, and will have to father himself
>>136108801>We're not most viewers.thank goodness
>>136108859Glynda is at least in her 30s, dude.
>>136108856Neopolitan turning back into good Trivia daughter sounds iffy.
>>136108859>Wasn't Glynda also like in her late 20's No? People have always assumed Glynda was in her forties or fifties. It's also why she gets so mad about Qrow's hag comment, she is one. At the very least, she'd have to be older than thirty because that's the cutoff point for getting maiden powers. If Glynda could have inherited them, they would have just given her Amber's soul instead of fucking around with Pyrrha.
>>136108659>Neo is for my OC self-insertYou mean MY self insert.
>>136108887Wait, there was a cut-off age for the maiden shit? then how Raven got the powers?
>>136108901She's had them for more than 10 years
>>136108901She got them before turning 30
>>136108811man that faunus children thing still makes no sense
>>136108901She obviously got it before the cut-off age. Jesus christ, do you even watch the fucking show?
>>136108914>>136108919>>136108922 Sounds like we are assuming numbers or making up rules now. and doesn't explain how that works on Penny who was made with old man aura in her body.
>>136108884>Yang being an explosive grumpy bitch to Herb and Cat>Weiss dismissing reincarnation and magic, despite being aware of Ozma and Salem's existencesI cannot believe I used to like these characters like 4 years ago.
>>136108884>>136108936Oh, my bad. Wasn't meant to reply to you.
>>136108932Penny isn't Pietro, dumbass. She's her own person, robot or not.
>>136108932Lionheart explicitly states in V5 that the Spring Maiden disappeared more than a decade ago. You can accurately deduce that Raven is around 38-42 in V5. Therefore Raven must have picked up the powers before she was 30. There's no assumptions needed.
>>136108932Confirmed by the writers in an ama that 30 is the cutoff age. V5 had Lionheart say that the previous Spring Maiden has been missing for over a decade, Raven bore Yang at like 22 (21 at the earliest if she graduated Beacon while pregnant) and has been gone back to bandits since.Also the Penny shit was meant to symbolize her being a real girl... until V8 came out and pulled the make her a real girl shit
Ruby is just constantly feeling their little butts and boobs.
I just came in to see how the show is doing since I stopped watching after the god awful end to volume 7.Wtf is ascending?
>>136108981Why did they keep them small for 3 episodes? I don't see any reason at all other than having dumb jokes about Little and Weiss being sat close to each other. Did they just not want to animate 4 people walking together?
>>136109000They thought it would be a neat gimmick taken from Wonderland. Like basically everything else that has happened for no real narrative reason.
>>136109000Because it was adorable.
>>136103628Losing memories up to what point?I feel like for Neo it would be a garbage redemption since she "forgot" all the bad she did.And for Jaune it means they have wasted him even existing since none of it matters cus he forgot it all and is basically just a civilian or just as useless as he has been up until now
>>136109000>Did they just not want to animate 4 people walking together?Did you see how fucking bad and stilted the walking animation was in this episode? Wouldn't surprise me.
>>136108998>Wtf is ascending?Long exposition scene in the show, but to sum it up, the Ever After swallows you whole, and tries to fix you. Inside (new opening song) hinted this process, and they just explained it in the most recent episode. Neo will likely undergo this process, and possibly also Ruby. It's a mystery if Jaune has experience it, but considering how long he has been in the Ever After, very likely he already went through it.
Why did they even bother with 'lol lose your memories' shit?
>>136109041Oh yeah, when Weiss was running away from the Jabbers she ran like she shit herself.
>>136109036>Losing memories up to what point?They didn't clear up that part very well, but Jaune remembers RWBY and JNPR, so I guess it's not a total memory wipe out. Lindsay is aware of how important Neo's memory of Roman is, so maybe Rubes will tag with her during that process, maybe? Who knows. Too early to tell how the execution of the ascension scene will play out.
>>136109044...so it just puts your body back to how it was before entering or like way more than that?Is it like an AI system that fixes what it perceives as broken?
>>136109087For Ever After inhabitants, it fixes them to fit a new purpose or play out their assigned roles better. But when it comes to Remnant people, they haven't cleared up how the ascension process goes down exactly. That's what worries Neo/Trivia in the opening's lyrics. Maybe Jaune will spoonfeed Ruby with more ascension lore in the next episode, if he already went through it. Chances are that's the reason he was chosen to be the Rusted Knight, so he's being stuck in that role for years. He likely fell into a comfort zone playing that role, while waiting for RWBY to show up.
>>136109121Don't suppose there is an answer (or ever will be an answer) on how literally only Jaune got caught in this time travel stuff and everyone is perfectly normal
>>136109135magic or some shit
>>136109160Do they not teach proper running form at Beacon?
>>136109000In an adventure party of 4 having every character spend 3 episodes walking behind the MC as she works through her issues would be an awful waste of animation especially if all they do are one liners every time something is revealed or questioned.
>>136109166They really need it
Am I the only one who thinks Jaune's body is aged up due to being the Rusted Knight or whatever? I mean if they could get people to shrink or grow I don't see why they didn't have him age when he got the "Rusted Knight" title.
>Get horny>Look up RWBY r34>Look at comments>Canonseeker constantly shows upHoly fuck, I thought you guys were making that shit up
>>136109244It's possible, that's why many are hoping he gets rejuvenized when he returns to Remnant.
>>136109244I think that's pretty likely the case, he took the purpose of the Rusted Knight so he literally changed to fit that role.kind of like how the Red King regressed back into the Red Prince, I don't think the concept of time works in the Even After or they would have some serious explaining to do with the timing of each character falling.
>>136109244Everything about boomer Jaune is likely a red herring
>>136103744People saying Jaune the 40 year old virgin would be able to fuck any of these girls is why I can't take jaunefags seriously. They are to busy self inserting.
>>136109349Imagine taking shitposting this seriously.
>>136102712From the intro, I thought Neo would be that brown girl that RWBY walk through some things with, with her having amnesia. Turns out nah she gets her powers boosted to 100 for some fucking reason.
>>136109362It's not that shitpost in particular I can sense the jaunefags jerking off about their self insert.
>>136109395You say the same thing in every thread, Jaunefags really live rent free in your head dude.
>>136109399Every thread? I just got here. It's not my fault jaunefags are a cancer to everyone else.
>>136108508Too soon to tell but its a bold move.There are positives for it given that this means Jaune has to have metured and grown. He is a man now, that means he has experience and time to have properly figured himself out.Meanwhile the bad is that any progress of his character now has to come with us discovering what a ten years older Jaune actually means.How has his experience and time changed him instead of Jaune growing on screen.It can go bad real fast and I honestly don't think its a permanent change.
Maybe it's okay that RWBY ends after V9
>>136109461I think the RWBY IP has outgrown the CRWBY and RT (minius the voices potentially) for sure. I think something else might come of it, but for the show as is right now, yeah I can't see a V10, either creatively or commercially.
>>136109135>Don't suppose there is an answer (or ever will be an answer)You're in a magic acid-trip dimension that singles people out and forces them to ask uncomfortable questions about themselves.The hows and why aren't even relevant here, what happened and when are important.
>>136108279Whose Theo talking to? I can’t for the life of me tell who that is
>>136109461it would of been ok if it ended any time after volume 4 xd
>>136109477>The hows and why aren't even relevant hereThey have never been relevant to the writers here XD
>>136109498Salem, you blind fuck.
>>136102712the emotion of seeing jaune did not last a day, the series is doomed, right?
>>136109498Salem. Theo calls her "Big One" in Before the Dawn
>>136109634Almost certainly yeah
>>136109472>>136109461Warner reboots rwby, now it's rwby kindergarten.ironically it is better written and will have more narrative consistency.
>>136109439So by everyone then only you right? you are the only one making a huge deal of this shit, specially when people have been waiting for weeks for him to appear.
