    Still after 3 Volume's this is one of the best episodes. Definitely my favorite from Volume 1 for sure. I remember how much everyone loved this episode when it came out.

    What is it with Rooster Teeth and jumping off rubble AS it's breaking? First in Red VS Blue, now this?

      It is (or was) a thing with Monty Oum. Watch the Dead Fantasy videos and you'll see why.

    "Think you can make the shot?" "Humph, can I." "Can yo-" "Of course I can"

    That moment when the bird's head comes off and the epic song hits a finishing chord. Is it even possible to not get goosebumps every time that plays?

    Dammit Nora!

  • Kalathanon

    So Nora might be hyperactive and a little crazy but if she can launch Jaune like she did and if her primary weapon is a grenade launcher then she probably has a very good understanding of calculus... or she is just really lucky.

    Also why is there not a "I have a plan" shirt with Ruby on it or something, so much potential.

    I just realized, they had to land in the forest from thousands of feet just a second ago, why didn't Ruby and Weiss use the same "landing strategy"?

    0:34 how did they get on that bird? 0:55 apparently. 1:03 convenient timing is convenient. also no both ruby and Juane are dead. 1:40 why? that seemed to work really well. 1:48 that animation. 2:21 nora is a dick to yang by copying that angry ready to explode pose. 2:27 take what? all the happened was nora interrupted you and copied your little freak out stance. 2:37 sorry yang no luck. 2:49 oh ya Jaune i forgot about him he'll save the day.3:04 cartoon gravity. 3:08 Weiss sword as in the air, not attached to her waist in the last shot but is in this shot. 3:15 enter Pyhrra. 3:30 we didn't say we were worried ruby. okay i have a problem with this entire scene. i know the creatures of grimm are evil and all but they are still animals. That giant a-- crow would see that scorpion and think 'ooh lunch' and go after it, not the small a-- humans. 4:15 mean girl decides to be nice for a change to tell the audience that there is more to her than meets the eye. also ruby's cape was pinned to the ground in the last scene by the feather but isn't in this one. 5:01 so what did the crow just sit there and go 'oh they are having a moment. better not interrupt or anything.' 7:23 because physics. 8:02 uh no ruby and gang are dead. 8:28 okay what is it? 9:15 and hold that pose. 9:46 i know that plan even though i never heard any of it or was not close enough to hear you. 10:29 that is one epic manevuer so no sin. but what i want to know is, if kids with only combat training can do this, why do they need to train to become hunters and huntresses? if they can kick this much a-- without it? 10:55 hey guys how do i get down? 11:07 really yang? 11:49 that line right there tells us Ospin knows juane faked his transcripts but allows him to come anyway. 12:21 that's how you spell ruby. 12:58 why are these cards important? 13:18 cops and dumb cops

      0:01 TylerChurch2 watches a Japanese style fantasy anime. Expects it to fit completely in the realm of reality and logic.

    Have to say Yang, Pyrrha and Blake are my favorite characters, they just are awesome in so many ways! Yang is crazy strong, Pyrrha gives me a "Carolina" vibe and Blake is mysterious and quick when it comes to fighting. smiley0.gif

    Every time I watch this episode that awkward hugging animation bugs the hell outta me. But then that fight scene happens. No matter how many times I watch it, it still amazes me how much awesome can be packed into one scene. Oh, and Nora. Nora cracks my shit up. It's probably been said before, but she's kinda like the Caboose of the RWBY world, and I'm perfectly okay with that.

    In the beginning there are a lot of details I’m not fan of but Nora is really funny with her song, hearts on the bullets, and everything. Nora fighting is really the best part of this episode. Also again great voice acting! Kara’s line “Can I? – Of course I can!†made me laugh so hard.

    The moving back from the cliff and the falling bird was perfect with the sound effects of passing pillars and other structures. Story advanced nicely, people were united and the action scenes were amazing! I liked how the battle is followed by an instant transition back to the school where a new set of characters is introduced. Music brings everything together. I guess I have to check iTunes now…

    Shame about the villain, though. I still wasn’t impressed by him. Anyway, easily the best episode so far.
