    For me the most heart breaking moment was when RWBY got back together and then the view changed and it was just the remnants of JNPR knowing they don't get that moment.

    I feel like we can assume the maiden powers stack up, or at least Cinder seemed to think so. When she stab-punched Vernal she was all, "wait, there's the power?" Also Vernal wasn't dead yet...and of course Vernal wasn't the maiden...actually maybe don't listen to Cinder.

      It hasn't been stated if Maiden powers can or can't stack, but Cinder was using Salem's magic to take it by force, which is different from normal transfers.

      Damn it.  I just spoiled myself by reading this.  :(  Haven't watched all of Volume 5 yet.  My own fault for reading the comments.  Didn't know what RWBY Rewind was and just came to comment about how much I like Cinder as a character and Jessica Nigri.  Man, that's really bummed me out.  :(

    • IceQueenJutsu Mirror Mirror

      3 weeks ago

      @CloutHeight Cinder did not smash into pieces yet, as far as we know. There were no crashing sound or ice shattering. Also the way she killed Pyrrha was completely different.

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

      3 weeks ago

      Gray mentions Cinder smashing on the way down as she 'falls'. I'm not saying that she is dead or anything, I'm merely making reference to it and they're sort of similar because Pyrrha evaporated into little pieces and Cinder smashing into little pieces as well.   

    • IceQueenJutsu Mirror Mirror

      3 weeks ago

      @CloutHeight He was saying that as it could happen. He said "IF she hits something, she will smash" Look at that important key word, being if. He did not confirm anything. I think everyone know that a frozen character will smash if they hit the ground. The thing is, why does she have to hit anything? She can break out of the ice using fire magic, it's entirely plausible.

    here’s a pocket theory I don’t think the maiden powers cinder had will go to either Ruby or Emerald cause while Ruby would’ve definitely been in her final thoughts I get the feeling that the silver eyed warriors are incapable of mixing with the maiden powers so instead there would be a random girl with the maiden powers that they would need to locate during the end of vol 6 or during vol 7

      If she is dead, I think it will go to Weiss. Cinder's secret cousin.

    7:13 through 7:35 I'm laughing so hard that I'm crying and seeing stars.

    Also, that brief moment when Jessica is doing her Cinder voice was just a little unsettling the first time around, but in a cool fun way, kinda like when you go through a funhouse or haunted house the first time but can laugh about it after, you know? "Come on in, we have spooky snacks."

    Going by that logic I think that Vacuo's headmaster will be Toto lol.

    Hour long isn't just movies though. As for cost look at a Game of Thrones episode, they cost way more then most anime movies. Obviously Rooserteeth doesn't have the resources HBO has, but there is a clear cost difference. Like Gray Haddock mentioned himself, they aren't completely ruling it out. Maybe the finale of the final volume will be 1 hour.

    I’d like longer episodes but I was thinking a bump to like 20-22 min not an hour. That’d be great but seems super unrealistic. I loved the Helsing Ultimate OVAs, but those took forever to finish.

  • colbert135 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    Ok so I’m just going to start off by saying Cinders not dead because the transfer of a Maidens powers is automatic as in it happens right away, for evidence just look at what happened to Autumn when she died, the transfer from her to Cinder wasn’t delayed or hesitant in the slightest it just happened the moment she passed.


    I’ve  said before, if Salem holds Cinder in such high regard to say and I quote: “Make no mistake Cinder, YOU hold the key to our victory” then I just don’t see her risking Cinders life so easily, Relic or no Relic. After all for the most part she’s nothing if not patient, just look at how long her and Ozpin have been going at it.


     I’m sure there’s some people who are going to say, “well what if Emerald becomes the next Fall Madien”? Yeah that would happen if again we saw the transfer happen  because like I said before it’s practically instantaneous as in it would’ve happened before Yang even went back up.



    Am I being bias because Cinder is my favorite character? Hell yeah, but I’m also applying what we know about the mythos and world of the show, not to mention I’m pretty sure if it was Cinders last appearance, well why be so vague about it? Why didn’t Jessica just be like “oh I loved playing the character and blah blah”


    At least with Torchwick we saw him get eaten then the Grimm that ate him got blown up, with Cinder it’s frozen, down the abyss... then nothing, no power transfer, no shatter sound effect not even a feint one.



    And also here’s something else on  why Cinder isn’t dead yet, two things specifically,  we have not gotten a full on Ruby Vs Cinder fight which they’ve been teasing since Volume 1 and in  most of the openings, but all that aside much how Jessica described  cosplayers going in Cinders various outfits to cons and such   the one thing that has in common which I believe given that it is Nigri voicing her and I think a part of Monty knew this would be an enjoyable benefit is  “Merchandizing”.

    Yes you can argue that is true for most of the characters but aside from Team RWBY/JNPR Cinder is the only one with different outfits practically every volume as well as different physical appearances  thus it opens up  the realms  of various products to be sold wether that be in Jessica’s case a cosplay outfit and  figurines or  in terms of RWBY and the others not only the previously mentioned two but also t-shirts, pillows, plushies, and a variety of other enjoyable collectibles.


    Yes telling the story and the world it takes place in and the people in it is first and foremost the main priority and the most important , but arguably the third or second most important step afterwards  after a certain period of time is making sure that there’s more then one way for people to remember and enjoy once again such interesting and  intricate  characters, the story they’re in  and the rich fulfilling world that it all takes place in.

    But I’ve rambled on long enough I enjoyed immensely Jessica’s through  Cinder appearencr , specifically the eyes I wonder how she did that and of course Grays Torchwick “costume” on the couch of doom.


    They should’ve had that intern dressed up as a male Neo. ^_^ 


    That’d be quite the sight.
