    I just want to say thanks for Season 5's thread of showing Blake overcoming Adam. It was obvious that this was meant to mirror the way a domestic abuse victim breaks away from their controlling abuser, and I would like you to know that this empowering journey for Blake definitely touched the hearts and minds of those who needed inspiration to tackle their own struggles.  


    Thanks for being such a thoughtful show that goes out of its way to say the subtle things right.

    This volume was really great overall and I've gotta say that this show helped shine a light on more of the behind the scenes things which I greatly appreciate seeing. The only other thing similar to this was the production diaries from Volume 2 which I also loved seeing.

    Thank you CRWBY.  I may have only been around for the show since Volume 3, but it's been one hell of a ride.  I've written fan-fiction, tried to create art of the characters in your show, and it's just been a blast.  Thank you writers, animators, and everyone else who has worked hard on the show to bring it as it is today.

    Started crying listening to this. Thank you to everyone in crwby, for sharing such beautiful sentiments, and for showing us all of the hard work you've always put into the show, and continue to do so with each season.  Thank you, thank you, thank you...

    I have to say that the fact that their is so much room for creativity in creating your own character in RWBY is why I had the most fun making my character of any character Ive ever made. This show is the fucking best.

      exactly. In fact my RPG group has played RWBY more than anything else in a loooong time. - 40 episodes or there abouts and counting....!  And we've never met any of the show's cast or gone anywhere off a little island on Remnant in the game! - so ~1/4 million words of comedy write ups - phew!  RWBY just keeps on giving. - Much respect to Monty and all at RT!

    Thanks for the RWBY show, but also thanks for making CRWBY. I've sat a long time watching RWBY and other productions come up from nowhere and become self sustaining that they can continue to produce content, and I just sit around wondering "How do I do that?" And if you look online, usually the only answer is 'spend thousands of dollars you don't have, force yourself into debt, and hopefully you get somewhere eventually.' 

    It's amazing seeing a pipeline from the ground up. It's amazing hearing the stories of the people who work on the show, and how some of them started animating because they loved it, and some of them fell into it a lot later in life. It's amazing seeing how so many small little pieces come together to build this beautiful universe. One day, I want to be apart of it, whether it's RWBY, a different project, or something I create on my own.

    One day I shall create worlds too, thank you for inspiring me to try my best.
    (And I hope this message helps fix up someone's late night production procrastination.)

    CRWBY, thankyou so much for everything you put into creating this amazing series. I cannot say how much myself and other fans appreciate the amount of love and dedication you put into creating this incredible show. The passion you guys have for this shines through in every episode and they way you strive to improve every season just blows all us fans away. So from me and I'm sure everyone else here, thankyou. Thankyou for the time and dedication you devote to this wonderful series and we all look forward to what you will astound us with next season.

    I think it would be really cool to hear about the some of the indirect pressures of having fans who are really pationate about RWBY and how that affects the whole process of making RWBY either for the writer/directors or for the rest of CRWBY.

    Thanks again CRWBY for all your imagination, hard work, late hours, bleary eyes, sore throats etc etc. I hope you all get at least some pause to rest before work on Vol.6 starts in earnest ... especially with Chibi starting early this year - and with newly added series to work on like Gen.LOCK .The end credits for this Vol (5) went on forever - it almost needed it's own OVA!!! It just shows how big the team has grown.


    As for Miles' comments ... CRWBY/Fans ... It's a symbiotic relationship! It goes both ways ... just as the fans give you guys inspiration, without the show - you wouldn't have the massive community that you do.


    Much appreciated :)

    Thanks for all the great work CRWBY!


    Speaking of the Velvet contest though, now that it looks like we're heading to Atlas next I really hope that Penny will make a triumphant return and that RT has discovered this awesome piece of fanart by D-Floyd2 and base her new design on it because its both badass and adorable in a very Penny way and takes some inspirations from Ruby's outfit which is just to fluffy for words.


    Also if Penny returns I want to see something like this happen:


    Ruby: Penny! You're alive! How?

    Penny: What do you mean?

    Ruby: I mean you died!

    Penny:...So I did!

    Holy shit she was an attractive Penny.  Also, WILD ASTA SPOTTED!  Best character in decades.


    I wanna say PLEASE don't listen to your fans because they are retarded but then that would mean my plea would be ignored.  Hmm,  how bout this, don't let certain loud and cancerous sub sections of RWBY's fanbase dictate your writing going forward, please.  


    Keep up the good work RT, cheers.

    Love the show and the story being told. One thing, in the fights, please don't let characters turn their backs on people they were just fighting. If needed, get them into positions to see things you want them to see without taking the person they were just fighting out of their field of view.

    Thank you so much for including me in this episode!!! I was so nervous but it was such an honor to help! Rooster Teeth has played such a big role in my life! The laughs it gave me helped me through rough times and the community helped me meet my best friend. RWBY and Rooster Teeth are something I don't know who or where I'd be without! <3

    You know, I've never known any show where I care so much about creators and animators to this day my phone lock screen is Monty to remind me of all the lessons he taught.. and I aways get so excited when miles is in the podcast.. Frankly I wish we saw more of him, as well as Kerry and many of the other people who work on this and many of my other favorite shows from here. Roosterteeth is a special company and Im glad I can finally afford to support them.. Keep doing great things.

    RT Animation has found itself in such a unique position. To be so community driven, and for the fans to feel so close to the production. RvB set that foundation. RWBY elevated it. 2018 is shaping up to be a huge year, and that is a reward that they've earned.

    I just looked back on my AO3 account, and I find that I have forty-nine RWBY fanfics up. Funny ones, serious ones, lewd ones, clean ones, scary ones. And one podfic. And one folk song (twenty verses!) It's helped me grow as a writer, it sparked a few interesting conversations, and it's been a light in dark times. You, the people you created, and the people who helped you bring them to life, inspired me to do this.


    Thank you for letting me play with your toys.



    P.S. Season 5 was shamefully deCFVYnated. I have one special planned, but then, Team CFVY will ride again! I promise I'll hand them back to you in the same condition I got them in.
