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 think the fight scene would have been better if both Ruby and Jaune worked together to take it down, showed both their strengths as leaders. Instead, it's just kinda Jaune calling the shots. Good episode otherwise!

      Yeah I think that mostly just to allow Jaune's armor and Crocea Mors to be a reveal.

      It should say where the video is suppose to be, but I think that it's 24 hours. Don't quote me on that though, I'm just going based off of assumptions.

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

      Hmmm... I wouldn't say that I simply don't like it, but I'm definitely having reservations about it. Some movements feel a bit clunky and some poses of especially female characters look a bit too "broadly"/(manly?). Maybe this just takes some getting used to. 

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

      i think its a big improvement

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

      1 year ago

      Some things looks good, some things don't. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what, but I agree with Outtay. Some of the poses just seem unfitting for some reason.

      I am really not a fan of Ruby turning into a blur for almost every move in the fight. The fight choreography really was just not that impressive in general. The giant grim was cool and all, but the fight did not feel epic.

      I do like a lot of the outfit design changes, except for Nora's.

    It's so amazing!!!!!!!!!!! My heart! And pyrrha.png is still with the team. That was so fantastic. I loved the ending animation. Time to add this to the Saturday routine. And quite an interesting villanous meeting. Let's see if they let the world burn.

    Salem's theme music sounds like a twisted version of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." I like it.

      That's what I thought at first too. I think it's an instrumental version of Divide though

    • j4sonm FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I think it was an instrumental version of vol. 3s opening.

      It has hints of the credits song from Volume 3, "Divide" I think it was called, and I agree, its amazing.
