    I've never watched anime before but if Red vs. Blue is my favorite show ever. Of all time. Then would I enjoy this show?

    (I'm in a show hole right now so if someone could respond soon that be great)

      The animation style is a bit off setting but the story and characters are awesome. Comparing it to Red vs. Blue I would give this a try.

    The part where Ruby finds out the guy's robbing her and goes "Ohh..." and sends him flying gets me every time! XD

    Ruby's voice has become more childish as she ages... Here she sounds 15/16 but in volume 4 she sounds 5.

    Saw the ad for this, decided to check out. Seems like my kind of anime. It's awesome that based on the ad for vol 4, the quality increases overtime. GG RT.

    Oh my gosh.  Ruby has gotten a lot less obnoxious since this first episode. Wow, the contrast is real...

      it is amazing how far the characters have come, how much they have grown

    is it me or has this animation be "retouched"?  looks a bit different then i recall.  and that's not a vol. 2-4 comparision.

    Wow, RT have come such a long way from this.  I was blown away by this when it first came out but put it next to a Volume 4 episode to see how much better they are at it now

    I love this series from the first trailers to the latest episode. I'm re-watching it again and I love seeing how much it has grown and improved since the first season. ^_^

    I've seen RWBY mentioned around the net alot but this is the first time seeing it; or even figuring out what it was. I love the art style reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles; which there should of been more sequels released on console (not psp).

    Oh crap, I thought "hmm heard so much about RWBY i'll just watch the first epidode before turning in" That was a huge mistake.....I'm not going to sleep tonight, i'll just be up watching all 3 seasons. Fantastic!

    First time watching this and this is amazing. Is it normal though that the quality video is so low, can we not modify this ?

    • ShinyNinjask

      Yeah. there's been a problem that I've been seeing on the website where you can't change the quality of older videos.

      I'd say head to RT's youtube channel to watch any of their older stuff, old vids seem kinda fucked on this site.

  • Eric_Hartman

    whats with the new intro? That wasnt there the first time i watched this. The song was fine by itself and the story was already awesome (until season 3 where it went dark and the characters started dropping like flies. ) so why the extra monologue? It seems unnecessary.

    • ShadowDragon93

      1 year ago

      Maybe you just can't remember, but the narration was always there. The monologue at the end of Volume 3 is just a continue for this.

    • DescendFromShadows

      7 months ago

      Volume 3 going dark was actually really great! A LOT of character development and plot twists went down in that one. Maybe I'm just a fan of darker themes and the like, but I thought it added a lot of depth to the story.  

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

    Who voices the intro???? It sounds oddly like Cortana and I'm surprised I didn't catch it the first time around.

    • SharkRepellent FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Not funny

      1 year ago

      It's literally Cortana (well, Jen Taylor but still).

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

      They got Jen Taylor (cortana) to do the intro for them.

    Well after the season finale from last weeks volume 3 my anger has finally quelled enough to come back and re watch all the episodes again. Maybe this time I can accept the death of a favorite character.

    Wow the beginning of this episode foreshadows so much. Explaining how eventually the academies will fall and darkness will return. Well with the newest episode of Volume 3 I think were approaching this point soon. I just cant imagine whats gonna happen in the finale.

      The only other thing I am wondering is what will happen to Rens character (voiced by Monty Om).

    • The_Man79 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      Ren will be voiced by one of Monty's brothers. He will sound different, but they felt it was to keep it in the Oum family.

      Probably not, actually. Their aura would have protected them, so she likely just knocked them unconscious. Afterward, I suspect they were arrested for the dust store robbery, which is why Junior never saw them again.

      Look closer. She was using the base of the weapon rather than the blade. They would have lived, but with at least moderate injury. So hospital then jail.

      yah I think so to its probably before she diapered or it could also be yang's mother for all we know but when you think about it she cant be to major of a character because I doubt that Rooster Teeth we be able to get Jen Taylor (the voice actress of Cortana) to voice a main character
