    female voice actor was perfect, as for the dude.... sounded way too much like shit dubbed anime, every time he spoke I died a little inside.

    those weapons are sweet.

    Very RvB fight sequence-like; very intriguing. I'm excited to see where this goes :D By far my favorite trailer. smiley13.gif

    I don't know if it's been mentioned...but their weapons acted in similar fashion as Ruby's scythe.

    Is Adam voiced by Fragger? They sound eerily similar if not.

    A buster sword, a 4-legged robot boss fight, a guy who looks like Reno? My Final Fantasy VII senses are tingling.

    Did anyone notice that some of the boxes have a snowflake printed on them? Maybe it's Weiss's cargo

    So the guy's name is... Adam? On first listening it honestly sounded like she said Redrum... I could be wrong (probably am), but then again is it worth the thought?

    The animation has gotten so much smoother since the first trailer. To those complaining about a lack of story, remember these are just trailers, and now they are incorporating voice-acting. I am sure that this will be a quality produced show when finished.

    I love the weapon design in these. The gun blast sword sheath is amazing. Was not expecting that at all.

    Over produced fight scenes, lack of story, no comedy, weird manga art. This is basically a Japanese fighting game but instead of mashing buttons to kill enemies I am mashing buttons to close my browser.

    Another thing, I'm thinking that Ruby and Adam are related, considering their looks and use of weapons. And the snowflakes are also worth mentioning, meaning Weiss is somehow involved. It's all starting to come together somehow.

    And further extending on my idea that Adam is the "Beast", that would be interesting if he could kind of be considered the "Wolf" in Ruby's Little Red Riding hood-esque story.

    So Roosterteeth should definitely make this into a true video game, I know I'm not the only one who would buy it. smiley0.gif

    I'm going to say it. If RWBY were a game I'd play till my fingers started to bleed. Then I'd put bandage my fingers and keep playing.

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand all the hate for the voices. Why do they have to be perfect right now? The only thing these trailers are doing is showing off the animations, and pumping people up for the series through the badass animations.

    Okay, this is just me speculating, but here goes. "Black the Beast descends from shadow." I don't think the "Beast" is Blake. She called the guy she was with Adam, right? Well, that could be a reference to the fact that Prince Adam is the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. I feel like Blake is going to be running from him and he'll chase after her. I also get the feeling that she's leaving because the things they do are criminal, so that could be what "descending from shadow" means. Again, I'm just speculating and I'm not sure any of this even makes sense, just sharing my thoughts.

    for everyone complaining about voice acting, though it could be improved, keep in mind that everything in this trailer was probably made from scratch, meaning they had less time to worry about the voice actors. Also, this is just still a trailer so don't be surprised if certain things aren't as good as they will be in the actual show.

    Amazing. Love the trailer and cant wait!

    No disrespect but I'd strongly suggest the male voice actor go back and reread his lines however. He came off extremely lifeless in this trailer. Keep up the great work!

  • bananagrrl

    OH OH OH! Blake calls this dude autumn and the tombstone says Summer Rose(I think)! They must be connected! or I'm deaf and can't read. this is also very likely.

    Has anyone else noticed the Snowflake symbols that showed up during parts of the trailer?

    Looks like that has something to do with Weiss.

  • Darkhero24

    While the voice acting could be improved, it could be that RT wanted to show the trailer at Pax East so maybe some things were rushed to get it done in time. However, i trust RT and i feel voice acting will be fixed for RTX. And while this trailer isn't like the other 2, it's more of a sneak peek of what the show will be, which is fine too.

    who dose the voices

  • Orothe666

    Simply amazing. My expectations are exceeded every time. Monty knows exactly ho movement works, and is an expert in every aspect of his craft. =P

    As far as voice acting, I have no idea why anybody has a problem with it. They're going to be somewhat monotone just for the fact they are on a mission. They aren't going to be "Hey! Sorry I'm late =( Let's do this! >:)" If they are being serious about a job. I thought the voices acted really well.

    Lastly, about the "Black the beast descends from shadow", that could mean a fe things, including being a "beast" (being very good) at her fighting style and "descending from shadow" meaning coming from darkness. AKA bad past.

    Seriously, this is why I became a sponsor. I love RVB, and Rooster Teeth as a company, but this is crazy amazing.

    dear god, this is amazing, if there was any other show (other than RvB which I of course already watch) with fight scenes like Monty's I would be on board in a second

    Dude, That was awesome! I think the red dude was connected to Ruby, what with the rose on his back and stuff. It sort of looked like the gravestone she was looking at at the start of her trailer. Interesting, considering Monty said these would not be canon. Also all of the crates in the background had Weiss' mark on them. I wonder if this is canon, or maybe they were just working the other two into this trailer?

  • Radu_Lykan

    Leaves me wondering how "Black the beast descends from shadow" fits into Blake's character. The line fits her combat style, but from what we can tell of her personality it doesn't seem to quite line up. She seems to care about the trains crew and after that disagreement leaves Adam.
    Loved her combat style.
    Voice acting felt off.

    I have never understood anime. Nor have I ever liked it....but even I have to say that this is bad-ass...or is it because RT brings out such little content during the 'off-season' that I'm having withdrawal symptomns? No its bad-ass. smiley0.gif

    I was extremly dissapointed. Th animation and action was incredible but the voice acting was terrible. The guys voice sounded way to put on and both of them were very monotone.

    WARDOG01 She showed earlier her concern of the crew members in the front cars (at least thats why i think she split ways)
