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.

    Loved how much crisper the animation and character design became.  I also loved how they showed Jaune's progression moment. That gave me shivers and tears.  I wonder what Ruby and Nora's combo name is called?

    Also like in any anime OP, it speaks volumes of what you can expect. So many new characters to explore and character development to delve into!

    Also the show gave me a JRPG feel to it somehow. Which felt very personal and nostalgic to me. Maaan this is just AWESOME.

      I'd call their combo "Sugar Rush" bc they're both pretty hyper, I believe that's a popular ship name or them as well.

    Sooooo awesome!! Always wondered what was going to happen to the 1 piece of armour that didn't dissapate. Sooo many feels!!

    I was crying from the opening scene simply at the quality of the animation.

    So proud to see how far this series has come since the first Red trailer, especially of the animation team, and Miles, Gray, and Kerry in particular. Good job, guys.

    (And shout out to Adam for keeping the site working as best he can.)

    You're probably already aware of this, Nora is out of sync with the outline at 16:46.

      I know what you mean.

      1) It's been several months.  The pain wouldn't be raw anymore.

      2) The fact that her tiara's metal is snow part of his shield and sword means that she's still protecting him.

      3) It's the simplest way to explain it to a stranger who doesn't need to know the details.

    I loved how the episode started out. Loved the fight and the new form of Grimm.

    And the new outfits look amazing!!!


    But when Jaune mentioned Pyrrha, he didn't seemed that all broken up about it.


    WHAT THE HELL!?

    I mean, he almost seemed like the loss he suffered was a pet, not a partner. SHE KISSED HIM AND THEN DIED! And he's not going to react to that at all???

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

      He's grieved. He's accepted it. His emotion was perfect.

      its been months since she died, he's obviously still hurting but his response was perfect taking into account how much time has passed. kudos to the VA.

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

      It's also been several months so he has already had time for serious grief.

    • xXlulu06Xx FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      Agreed with Nooraelad. He's had time to come into terms with her death and at this point he might just be wanting to get, not an angry type of revenge, but he wants to do something to avenge her... if that makes sense. 

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

      Yeah, I get the feeling that Jaune has chosen to remember Pyrrha for how she lived, rather than how she died.

    Honestly this brought some tears to my eyes. I loved every single second of it. From the intro, to Pyrrha continuing to protect Jaune, the fight, the ending, the music and animation. It was just perfect. Thank you everyone who worked on this! Only wish Geoff had voiced the blacksmith cuz of Heroes and Halfwitts to be honest. Still I'm gonna watch this over and over till next weeks ep.

    Holy shit, Cinder got fucked up.


    So, the more powerful an enemy the more effective Silver Eyes are? At least, thats what it seems like.


    If anything happens to Ruby, especially what Tyrian (is that his name?) is suggesting, I will kill someone. Also, did we either just get confirmation that there are (or at least were) more silver eyed warriors running around, or that Salems group was responsible for Summers death? SO MANY QUESTIONS ALREADY.


    So that dementor looking grimm is the same type Weiss fought in the White trailer it seems. Geist huh. Pretty friggin cool.


    Omfg Jaunes hoodie. 


    HOLY FUCK WHICHEVER WRITER DECIDED IT WAS OKAY TO MELT DOWN PYRRHAS SHIELD TO USE IT FOR JAUNES NEW ARMOUR WAS WRONG. I DIDNT EXPECT TO BE TEARING UP AT EPISODE 1!!!


    On a lighter note, I loved this episode. The animation looks great, its more serious but still has comedy there. Great start to the volume. Although I was kinda hoping to see Blake and Yang.

    The new quality is great in all, but I'm still noticing that some shots are "jaggy" on edges and lines whereas most aren't. Noticed this is Volume 3 as well. WTF?

    I am extremely cautiously optimistic about this season, animation is gorgeous (Seems like this season is taking a nice big jump into anime styling and story boarding), but I cant help but feel overwhelmed with the amount of new characters introduced in this episode alone coupled with the large segment of time skip. (I thought season 2-3 were for setting the board?) Overall, I feel that this will hopefully carry on the RT tradition of blowing me away with both story, sound, and looks, while ensuring that Monty's project is fully realized, if anything, I feel that this was just sadly a bit of a bumpy start.


    Also. Damn you for further driving the stake into the heart of the bumblebee ship you monsters :(
