    So, Pyrrha's from Mistral? So she comes from the kingdom of Grimm trainers.

    Watched the volume three finale a few days ago. Got chills when I saw Pyrrha, I also got pretty mad at Jaune when he was ignoring her.

      I was mad at him for ignoring her BEFORE chapter five of volume one was out, never mind the volume three finale.

      Haha, yeah It's pretty infuriating seeing him ignore her.

    Spoilers, but if you are stopping to read comments before you binge watch the series, shame on you.

    I'm pretty sure that Jaune is either dyslexic, illiterate or both. They subtly dropped the hint just with him talking about his locker number and not having to count so high. Why would he even need to count when they are probably numbered. They also don't go in perfect rows so counting would be hard enough. 636 could easily be 366.

    His character type is the selfless kind so him reading the comic book in a later episodes when he should be improving himself would lend that he has trouble reading.

    He skipped right over signal which is where he should have started. Why would you steal transcripts to enter a warrior school when you can just enter signal without them and get to forge a cool weapon. If he took the time to learn about the schools on their super internet he would have easily known where to start.

    He is into battle yet he has never heard of Pyhhra who would have made headlines all over the 4 kingdoms not to mention the name credits on the box that usually detail the photographer and the model.

    Basically his complete lack of warrior training and information of the world leave me wondering what he has been doing his whole life. Of course I could be wrong but its the vibe I'm getting.

      Putting a SPOILER WARNING here as well since it seems fair. Well, that's a possibility only because it hasn't been absolutely debunked that he has trouble reading since it wasn't a topic at all. The "hint" with his locker number wasn't much of a hint actually. It was more of the joke being on him since he couldn't remember which locker was his or as a result where his things were. Could be more, but that's more complicated than it really has to be.


      Ozpin said himself (to Ruby) that "You can't live your whole life on the battlefield" so about the comic books... well I don't know, maybe we're forgetting that despite the fact RWBY is the youngest of the cast, they are all teenagers? Comic books might just be his thing.


      Now about the transcripts... everyone at Signal makes their own weapon, but Juane didn't. He was passionate about being a hunter because his father/grandfather etc. all were. However, if he needed to have a "hand me down" from them in the form of some... not exactly on part equipment, was he in Signal in the first place? Those transcripts probably deal a lot more with levels of combat readiness and overall competence, which at this point in time Juane demonstrates a significant lack of.


      And about not knowing Pyhhra, well... he wanted to be the hero etc. but that doesn't necessarily mean he has to familiarize himself with celebrated hunters/huntresses because... well come on, at the end of the day Pyhhra is a huntress like any other. An exceptional one perhaps, but still... maybe he and I share the mindset of not really getting hyped over celebrities?


      As for what he's been doing his whole life until now? Well... seems like staying at home being a bit looked down on by his own parents. He wanted really badly to be a hunter, and to be the hero out of his team, not the dead weight who needs help all the time. Now as a person aspiring to be a psychologist, I don't think that kind of lofty aspiration would be in his head for no reason. Hunter? Sure... but why the extra MVP points? Only speculating, but probably because no one expected him to amount to much. In one of the more recent episodes. He said that before he set out for beacon, his parents told him it would be perfectly fine if he ended up just having to move back home again...

    I really want to know what the rest of Nora's conversation from the start of the episode is. I assume she just keeps talking while she and Ren are changing scenes like walking down halls getting breakfast etc., but what is she saying?

    0:35 creepy friend is creepy. also there had to be gaps in nora's speech to allow for the scene changes all the way up to 1:22. 1:31 i'm not quite sure why this is a sin, but i'll count it as one anyway. 2:10 so do babies ruby, that's not a good arguement for you position. 2:51 everyone? you are literally the only person to ask her about that weiss. 3:13 Weiss thinks that her and Pyhrra will be on a team because reasons. 3:22 Jaune is a dick to girl trying to talk to him. 3:28 you asked for this weiss with that 'tall, blonde and scraggly' comment. 3:40 Jaune thinks he's a player. 3:48 here we get the earliest beginnings of Weiss' nickname, snow angel. 4:02 how come literally no one else is aware of this? 4:43 Pyhrra is a hits a guy she is hitting on. 5:02 the part were you tried hitting on both Pyhrra and Weiss. 5:46 that's a terrible way to choose partners. 6:03 this is the extremest of hazing. 6:30 ospin is a dick to guy asking questions.

    I'm not saying Pyrrha isn't strong it's just Yang's semblance kinda makes her invincible...

    Pyrrha the "strongest girl in class"? I think Yang could give her a run for that title...

    Just noticed that Pyrrha doesn't actually touch her spear in order to pull it out of the locker.

    @ENTITY I wonder if there isn't some other reason driving her to be all over Jaune. As such a high profile individual, she's bound to be involve with some affluent groups - Jaune's family perhaps.

    You know, maybe I'm reading into it too much or over-analyzing, but after AsherPheonix's comment I'm starting to think this episode was a bunch of hints to Pyrrha and Jaune. For one thing, even though Pyrrha seems reserved and polite, she steps right in front of Weiss as Jaune tries to flirt with Weiss. Then as Jaune tries to recruit Weiss on his team she mentions that it's 4 people for a team, and THEN as soon as he walks up to her and talks to her she changes her pose and stands up straight a little more, and then ofc the last hint was Pyrrha nailing him to the locker, and even Weiss was surprised at that, lol. All these hints just show how much she likes him in my opinion, so to all those people who prefer Weiss and Jaune, I seriously think this show's in favor of the latter, lol.

    The beginning with Ren and Nora was really nice. The babbling is repetitive since there are already two characters that do that but Ren’s quietness made the whole scene work. Monty has an amazing voice that fits Ren perfectly.

    “I drink milk.†Lindsay’s voice acting made the line so funny! I also liked Weiss’s plotting and Jaune’s awkward advances. Excellent episode but the story itself hasn’t progressed for a few episodes now. I understand the need to establish the characters and not to reveal the whole plot all at once but to me the story needs to move on more during an episode.

    I just now realised after watching this episode 3 times why Pyrrha hit joane with her spear. she didn't want him to talk to Weiss, she didn't do that to save weiss from having to talk to him

    WARNING! CARRY ON READING OR ELSE YOU WILL DIE, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl named Clarissa. She was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital because she killed her mom and dad. She got so bad that she went to kill all the staff in the hospital, so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her as humane as possible, but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death, she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes, u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. U will either get kissed or asked out. If u break this chain, u will see a little dead girl in your room. In 53 mins someone will say I love you or I'm sorry

    I love the clever double meanings of some of the episode titles like this one. The initiation is the students' first step in becoming a hunter/huntress, and at the end THAT first step really WAS a doozy!
