Volume 4, Chapter 1: The Next Step

RWBY: Volume 4, Chapter 1: The Next Step

It's been several months since the Fall of Beacon, and the world of Remnant is still recovering. Tensions are high, lives have been lost, and the members of Team RWBY... are divided. Each of our heroines now faces a journey of their own. While some must search inward if they ever hope to move on, others will venture out into the world in search of answers. Alongside the remaining members of Team JNPR, Ruby Rose has begun the long trek to the kingdom of Mistral, but the road ahead is full of surprises. New friends and enemies await, while the threat of an even larger catastrophe draws near.

    I didn't say this when I first saw this episode, but I really feel like Church's quote from the end of Season 13 of RvB really sums up the role of us as fans in Season 4 of RWBY, now that Monty's gone (Bless him).  "In the end, they just have to have faith.  Ain't that a bitch?".  I'm sure Monty had faith in the team.  I'm absolutely positive.  Now it's our turn to see how it turns out.  It's our turn to have faith in them.  And I'm with Church on this one.  It really is a bitch.  But I'll have faith.  For Monty.

    I love rwby as much as anyone, but really? that fight was so jerky and inferior to fights in the past.

    i hope they step up their game.

    also, jaunes strategy was literally

    "We can't hurt it...so we have to hit it harder! guys, keep doing the stuff you were already doing!"

    they keep doing it, it STILL does literally nothing.

    then nora just one shots it.

    seriously? why was it a threat to them in the first place if she could do that?

      I kind of miss the impact of the old fight scenes. I don't know if the new, polished design is causing things to look too "floaty" now, or if there is less work going into the audio mastering of the combat, but there's something off now. (I still love, love, LOVE RWBY!) I do however feel like what kept me on the edge of my seat from volumes 1-3 was the detail and weightiness that went into each fight. You could almost feel every bash and collision, whereas now, it's much less 3-dimensional. I hope they take this into consideration, but again, no hate, just a slight bit of disappointment. Apparently, I wasn't the only one feeling this way. Still have much love and won't stop watching.

      I'm sure they'll do better going forward. Volume 4 was a big transition for everyone working on RWBY, so some things were bound to suffer. It seems like they put so much effort into the other aspects of animation, that the fight sequences suffered. But seriously, unless flying is their semblance, they shouldn't be able to do half the stuff they did this volume. That and the creativity is gone from the fights. They're a little predictable this volume. I know the people working on RWBY can do better than this, so I'm sure it will improve.

    i may have already said this on a previous watch but it's nice to know wises is helping where she can at least i assume thats why Nora mentions schnne dust company although i suppose they have a monopoly on dust pretty much so even if Weiss isn't helping it's all still schnee dust.

      also another though with the smother animation the fight scenes lose something it feels to smooth. i on't dislike it here particularly but i f eel i takes some of the realistic grittiness away, it seams like fighting should be a bit choppy in real life fighting isn't smooth and majestic so why in shows.

  • Kerisato

    Wait so Ozpin is really dead?! Please no. That was way to short a fight - however epic - to be all the screen time he got to shine. And the way Qrow and Tai Xio kept going on.... It didn't really seem to be his end. And if it was, who was Salem talking to - or rather, why was she talking as if he were present at the end of Season 3? Doesn't add up.


    Kind of interesting that Emerald and Mercury are abhorred by the creation of Grim but went along with Cinder anyway. And Cinder got wrecked. I'd feel bad for her if she wasn't responsible for Penny, Pyrrah, Ozpin, Roman Torchwick, Neo(?), and Beacon Academy. (On a side note, I suspect they'll be changing her voice actress for when she's back to full.)


    Hats off to the crew behind the voice acting. Hazel sounds like a boss, Tirion like a loon, and Watts could be the civil one that makes up for the child-like antics of Tirion (he literally acts like a kid on a sugar high). And of course the regulars are sounding better and better with each season.


    Excellent work on the fight. Showcased how Team JNRR (I'm with Nora on that one, it's less of a stretch than RNJR) have improved in more ways than style.


    And the art-style of this season. It's different, obviously. Not sure how I feel about it. Clearly smoother animation, and more attention to detail, but at the same time it kind of feels, I don't know, video game-ish. More in the vein of RvB if that makes sense. I'm sure in time, though, it'll be ideal for the season. After all, the animation and coloring of RWBY has been steadily evolving. This just seems to be the most drastic leap compared to the incremental steps from 1 to 2 and 3.

      The only problem I have is that the female model seems to have too thin of a neck for the broad shoulders.  Also, there was a lazily animated mid-air dodge on the part of Ren.  Not that I blame them.  I can tell you from experience that animation is a bitch.

    Eye for an Eye

     

    Ruby left the store with a big smile on her face. “Thank you for your time sir!”

    The shopkeeper smiled as well. “Any time again!”

    The door shut behind her and Ruby giggled. The weaponstores here in Mistral were all so cool! They had a halberd, whose shaft could be halved and turned into a double barreled shotgun, a shield whose edge was made out of blades, which could be used for throwing or slashing, and the edge was detachable to form a blade-whip. She shivered in joy and almost turned around. But – since she spent almost two hours in that shop – she decided to move on and see more of this place.

    The alley she walked was made of little shacks and houses, all shops of different kinds, dust, hand-knit clothes, foreign foods whose smells she didn’t even recognize – but she definitely needed to try some of those! – and lots of people in fashionable clothing. Wide robes, pretty dresses, sandals and foreign looking hairstyles. They were so different, but yet a lot more friendly than she expected, even after uncle Qrow told her about Mistral.

    Even though she wouldn’t be so naïve to forget the other part he told her about, she thought, as she passed a small, dark alley between two shops, where scraps of rotten wood and bags of garbage lied around, accompanied as to be expected: Four and two legged rats, scudding around each other, waiting for the leftovers of better beings.

    She turned away and kept going along the alley, light by lampions in a vast amount of different colors, shaded by the shadows of shop signs and the pure, bright light that floated through the milk glass of the shops and bars, all overflooded by the moonlight.

    She looked up at the bright moon, peace in mind, until she suddenly realized how much the moon already had risen. “Dammit! Jaune!” she suddenly shouted, grabbed her scroll and opened it. Two missed calls, one sound message. She started running as she turned on the message.

    “Ruby, where are you?!” asked Jaunes distressed voice out of her scroll. “We are supposed to meet up with these – you know who – guys in less than half an hour!”

    “I knooow…” Ruby cried.

    “Wherever you are, hurry!” A clicking voice ended the message.

     

    ***

    Tyrian watched the girl in the red hood, squatting at the top of a roof, as she turned her head and looked up in the sky. The shine of silver eyes, reflecting the moonlight made him giggle. “Gotcha.” As the little girl started to run, he followed her over the rooftops into the night, a mad smile on his face.

      ...they aren't in Mistral yet. That's where they're trying to go and why they want an airship from "the next town over". They're still on the continent where Vale is.

    • merumya

      Taking that as a "yes". So, Part two:


      The foggy air condensed at her face, moistening it, while Ruby ran through the streets, close to her meeting point with Jaune, Ren and Nora. She quickly drew her scroll out of her pocket, glancing at the time. She was already five minutes over the scheduled time and another missed call by Jaune. “Stop acting like dad, Jaune ...” Ruby angrily mumbled as she turned around another corner into a small alley.

      She came to an abrupt halt as she saw, that it was a dead end. The alley ended after around two dozen steps in a stone wall, drenched in moss and moisture. Ruby let out an angry squeal as she turned around to leave her as-so-hoped shortcut.

      She frowned, as she saw some weird guy at the entrance of the alley. He looked quite off, compared to the people here. Instead of the colorful clothes of the normal people or the shady outfits of the rats and misfits of the slums, he wore pure white clothes, some pants, a vest and in addition leather gloves and loads of leather straps around his arms. His clothing wasn’t that unusual, but the look on his face made her stop. He looked at her, his head slightly tilt, with a weird grin on his long face under the unkempt hair, directly looking at her, as if he knew her.

      She looked at him with narrow eyes for a second, before she decided to try and avoid trouble. She was already late and the guys she was supposed to meet five minutes ago, seemed serious about having some intel. She assertively stepped forward, but the guy didn’t flinch. Slightly budging to the left she rose her voice. “Excuse me. Wrong turn.” She slightly nod her head, raising her and in a gesture of apology, squeezing herself between the man and the soggy wall as he smashed his hand against the wall, blocking her way.

      Ruby stopped, slowly looked up to him, grinning down to her, suppressing a sigh. So that’s how this was going. Her hand wandered to the grip of her scythe as the man bend over her, his face only a few inches from hers. “You took the wrong turn a long time ago.” He whispered, before starting to giggle.

    Is anyone else really reminded of star wars mixed with naruto (the plot relevant parts)? 

    Seriously with the evil council type thing and the creepy Orochimaru type, plus the sudden shift in looks and attitude akin to the shift into shippuden, parraleled with the cooler fights.

    • ZeroBeat287

      No.. I think you're really only just a Naruto nerd and should proooobably.. I don't knooow... Stop?

    • Kerisato

      1 year ago

      I won't be quite so blunt but, fearzila, you are seriously mistaken if you think Star Wars and Naruto are the points of origin for what is shown here. Both in the Star Wars and Naruto series, cues were taken from work that preceded. With Naruto the inspirations were Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z mixed with several Chinese myths. Star Wars took most of its ideas from Eastern Mysticism (the Force = Ki) and ancient Greece, as well as 'classical' tales of monks and their disciples.


      And the art style of RWBY has been changing a little with every season.


      The plot also has shown very little similarities to Naruto or Star Wars. Naruto's plot is a bare step above Dragon Ball Z: Stupid idiot with super-powers beats up everyone/everything to prove he's right or best or deserves respect. (That show had so much potential and just missed the ball.)


      And the various plots in Star Wars (canon) are that the Republic or Alliance both are a bunch of incompetent organizations unable to survive on their own for more than a day without some new super-powerful threat invading or conquering. But don't worry here comes a lucky scrapper with the force to save the day. While the none-canon (EU) is worse with Luke Skywalker suffering a server case of Goku-ism, basically becoming the god of the Force or something. I'm relieved most of that got scrapped when Disney bought it.


      You can compare that with just the setting alone of Remnant and you'll see there's a LOT more going on here than what you find in Naruto. I mean, just listen to the opening themes of Season 2 and 3, read those lyrics then come back and try to say this bears a similarity to Naruto or Star Wars, plot-wise.

      Thank you @Kerisato for actually using a well thought argument and using actual comparison to the things i referenced to counter what i said, i will highlight that I meant the old republic and certain scenes with sideus, rather than just vomiting insultingly on a comments section like this is youtube or a rugby changing room, and getting complimented weirdly well for it.

    I was thinking about the boy at the beginning...and Ozpin is missing... could the boy be a young version of Ozpin?(eye color is pretty close and Oz has dark eyebrows, hinting of a former hair color) He did mention the story of the maidens be around since he was a boy and the boy is farming much like the "old man" from the story. This is of course possibly adding to the theory that Ozpin is the old man in question. Just a thought.

    • henrycool01

    • Kerisato

      1 year ago

      That's a theory I was just entertaining. Salem says Ozpin is dead, but is she trying to defend Cinder's performance or is he actually gone? It's been all-but stated that Ozpin's semblance may have had something to do with time control or even travel. Maybe he can restart his life at any point, inserting himself into Remnant but in a new form, because the body itself is mortal?

    "

    They see you as small and helpless;

    They see you as just a child.

    Surprise when they find out that a warrior will soon run wild.

    Prepare for your greatest moments;

    Prepare for your finest hour.

    The dream that you've always dreamed is suddenly about to flower.

    We are lightning,

    Straying from the thunder,

    Miracles of ancient wonder.

    This will be the day we've waited for.

    This will be the day we open up the door.

    I don't wanna hear your absolution;

    Hope you're ready for a revolution.

    Welcome to a world of new solutions.

    Welcome to a world of bloody evolution.

    In time, your heart will open minds,

    A story will be told,

    And victory is in a simple soul.

    Your world needs a great defender.

    Your world's in the way of harm.

    You want a romantic life; a fairytale that's full of charm.

    Beware that the light is fading;

    Beware if the dark returns.

    This world's unforgiving, even brilliant lights will cease to burn.

    Legends scatter.

    Day and night will sever.

    Hope and peace are lost forever.

    This will be the day we've waited for.

    We are lightning.

    Welcome to a world of new solutions.

    This will be the day we've waited for.

    This will be the day we open up the door.

    I don't wanna hear your absolution;

    Hope you're ready for a revolution.

    Welcome to a world of new solutions.

    Welcome to a world of bloody evolution.

    In time, your heart will open minds,

    A story will be told,

    and victory is in a simple soul."

    This song has already said it all...This is the day we've waited for, and Volume 4 is Opening Up the Door; don't know why everyone's complaining about "departures"...the song has already said all of this would happen, and the team has already said that Monty Oum left enough material behind for them to finish the show...it's all following the original intent.

    That being said -  I love it guys! I have some reservations about the way RWBY darts around now, but it's not a biggie, and I'm loving it all thus far :) I look forward to seeing how everyone grows, and their probable reunion into a new super ultimate team RWBY!!!

    Im a huge fan of the new animation quality in everything EXCEPT the fightscenes. Its really aparent that the soul of RWBY, its amazing choreography (impact, creativity) in its fightscenes were enough on its own to love the characters, its story and watch the show. I dont mind the improvements elsewhere, but how did we take such a nose dive from the eaglefight in season 1? I would face another bully arc to get that shit back. Season 3 had a small dip in quality which wasnt very aparant and easily explainable, but this is staggering. I hope this volume will keep me engaged with other things except action, and perhaps keep action to a minimum, unless some drastic changes are made. Glad to hear the soundtrack is still as great as ever and I want to say here i do NOT take the hardwork and better production quality for granted, im simply -as a rwby fan- sad to see the charm and greatest aspects of this show dissapear so early. Hopefully the trailer and this fightscene were done by the regular animators because the fight choreographer was still on vaca.

      well for one thing Oum is no longer with us to choreograph the fight scenes and this is the general point that me and my friends agree on with the new series too, everything else is still there just not the awesome fight scenes, Ruby seems like a novice, and uses her weapon as if it where two separate ones  rather than a single complex weapon, similarly, the blinky-darty thing is a bit out of place, while it works with Ruby's semblance it isn't a good substitution for using her weapon for acceleration. other than that though i really can't complain.

      P.S. the big eagle things are Nevermore,

      Im sure the team working on it now can see the same things im seeing, anyone with animation experience should see the difference. Im just sad because it is left potential. Do people honestly think the fightscene in this episode had anything on ANYTHING on volume 1 and 2s fightscenes and most of volume 3s? Even the much higher quality trailer for this volume was generic through and through and dropped in animation quality the moments it mattered most.

      Just sad, tho im invested enough in the characters to keep watching for sure.

    Great way to start off the season RT. :) I'm a new fan of the show and I'm happy to have watched all the episodes from Volume 1-3, all of RWBY Chibi and the World of Remnant before this episode came out. The funny thing is, I knew this show was on YouTube for a long time, but I never gave it a chance until now. 


    As for this episode: well paced, great introduction of the new villains and characters, and seeing Cinder, Emerald and Mercury there was a treat. Unsurprising to see Cinder in the shape she's in after what Ruby did, but blinded and not being able to speak? Yeowch! For the rest of the episode, loved Ruby's new outfitNora's new upgrade, Jaune's battling strategy and armor upgrades, and the tearful remembrance of Pyrrah .The music is absolutely lovely too. Just perfect!

    They crammed everything, spoilers, all the characters and all for possible stuff into one episode. Should have spread it out over the volume. Still, good to see Cinder and love her knew look but a bit quick showing her right away.

    I think the farm kid at the beginning might be the spring "maiden". I know they look like a dude, but I think I remember at one of the RWBY panel that there is going to a character that was not going to "straight".
