    Poor Jaune. You can tell in hindsight that he's trying too hard. I would call his fumbling self-deprecation annoying if I didn't empathize with him so well.

    I love how little details like what is under Jaune's armor have been there the entire time, we just didn't know it yet.

    0:01 opening narration replace by evil twin, opening music. 1:13 the animation for ruby while she envy's the weapons. 1:40 introvert. 1:48 yang's friends are all silhouettes. Also where did these friends come from? 1:57 netiher do we. 2:05 no for all anybody knows she just knocked over a bunch of suitcases. 2:21 we are listening and while we understand none of us give a sh-t. 2:33 somehow knocking over the cases might cause more damage then the glass vial hitting the pavement after being thrown by the explosion. 2:38 despite being caught in a firestorm, weiss shows no burn damage what soever. 2:48 Weiss looks no older than ruby but ruby is somehow younger. despite no visible difference. 2:56 no sh-t beacon is where you become hunters and huntesses and they slay monsters. geez everyone in this show are masters of the obvious. 3:09 exposition by nosey intruder. also obvious future team partner is obivious. thats two sins. both weiss and blake. 3:20 scene does not contain a catfight. 3:36 blake is a dick to girl she just helped. 4:11 name-calling. 4:35 stupid character is stupid cliche.

      That's because all the characters are based off of a fairy tale character.

      Ruby - Little Red Riding Hood

      Weiss - Snow White

      Blake - Belle

      Yang - Goldilocks.

    There’s no need to invent the wheel all over again but some things like the “little Rubyâ€, falling over from Yang running by, and opposing index fingers seemed a bit forced to me. Sorry to say but at times the characters also come across needlessly stereotypical and unoriginal. Fortunately it’s just first impression and going further on fixed the issue for me.

    I also like how ruby just swings her scythe around like its light as a feather

    I like how they don't waste time editing in other non essential people so they can spend more time on other more important things

    anyone alse notice that ruby's sister kind of feels like tanith low from the skulduggery pleasant series (blonde, older sister to the main protagonist, rides a bike, uses melee fighting style (yes, i know tanith uses a katana but still..))

    ruby is so adorable.
    lindsay has done extraordinary work for her character. her vooice. :3

    and i have a hunch that the animators are wizards. lead by their head wizard, monty. credible evidence has yet to surface.

    Question: Why does Ruby's scythe have a scope? She has never used it a single time.

    It's also a customizable, high impact sniper rifle.

    I'm hoping/suggesting/predicting that Cardin's aggression towards Jaune has something to do with family history. A feud or a long held grudge possibly related to Jaune's great great grandfather and "the war".

    because if there isn't any more depth to Cardin's behavior then this is just gonna be another "bullying is bad m'kay" type of thing.

    "Well the name's Jaune Arc. Short, sweet, rolls off the tongue. Ladies love it." - Jaune
    "Do they?" - Ruby
    "They will. Well, I... I hope they will." - Jaune

    I love this conversation. Keep up the good work.
