Volume 4, Chapter 5: Menagerie

RWBY: Volume 4, Chapter 5: Menagerie

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.

    Anybody else notice that Blake (and mom, too) has human ears? What's up with that? Do her cat ears not provide any hearing abilities? What's the point of having 2 pairs of ears?

    • MontyOumsSpirit

      10 months ago

      I believe her second pair of ears is for sensing danger and not hearing that's why she both has human and kitty ears

    6:59 Sun's tail looks weird with the....little furs sticking out, because it doesn't looks like furs. Sun's tail looked like a moving yellow tree branch for a moment.

    I wonder what type of Grim out in the desert, if they can be so bad as to confine the entire population into one small area.


    I guess when Blake said she was born into the White Fang (Season 1; Episode 16) she meant it literally; her father was the head of the organization at that time. But her dad, is he faunus? Or human? not counting the chest hair, he didn't have any obvious signs of being faunus. I remember Qrow talking about how human and fuanus were completely compatible - biologically, of course.)


    Can't wait to see Tyrian in action. It'll be interesting to see how the psycho will fight. (On a side note, poor inn keeper).


    PS: For those wondering about the voice of Blake's father: Yes, it's Father (just looked it up).

    I don't like Blake all that much. She's just too emo and strung up about everything. Then again I probably wouldn't dislike her so much if her dialogue was less "Exposition exposition. Plot, emo drama".

    7:03 I wonder why they went with "Mom!" instead of "Mother!" I guess maybe that's a bit too formal for Blake, idk, but most of my female friends say "Mother!" whenever they get embarassed by their mom.

      Give her a break. People have different ways of expressing/venting their distress. And people sometimes need to vent their distresses. It actually helps a lot more to express them, rather than to hide the emotions.

      Or maybe she is that offended by them that she just doesn't care. I mean, she's gone toe-to-toe with the White Fang on three separate occasions AFTER she fled them.


      Also Beacon tower fell, there is literally no way to know who knows who since that was kind of important to the world of Remnant's information sharing.

    • cryptickassidy

      I agree with it having been really dumb that Blake exposed herself like that. After having been so afraid of being found by Adam that she set sail for another continent, then so easily reveal herself to White Fang members seemed completely off.

    The White Fang List Of Evil: well they released Grimm into beacon, They murder people, and there a lying bunch of Jackass's who if the lie is figured out by Blake's father are probably going to get bear hugged to death by him, OH and i'm not 100% on this but Adam is allied to salem so the list of how good they are for fanus goes down real fast

    Who else noticed the music at 1:44 and the end credits? The BGM is very similar to "Far East Suite" from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Speaking of which, Blake's father sounds a lot like Van Hoenheim or Father.

    so i totally just went back and looked at volume three to see if the voice actors for ruby and sun changed i honestly thought the one for sun changed i highly doubted that they changed ruby but they changed neither even though i still think sun's voice still doesn't sound the same as in previous volumes but i did think it was interesting why people thought this. 

        Did anyone else think this or hear a difference in sun's voice?


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

      @Glythmare Sun has always been voiced by Michael Jones since he first appeared on the show.

    • Glythmare

      11 months ago

      @JustinBlackBeard No I understand this I was just making sure because the voice does sound a lil different and just wanted to see if anyone else heard a difference in it just even a lol 

    • CloudedSun

      11 months ago

      It's because Micheal Jones has taken a way goofier approach to Sun's character. He used to sound much more serious starting in Volume 1, then as the Volumes went on he started getting higher pitched.

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

      11 months ago

      @CloudedSun I don't he's gotten goofier over time. He was pretty darn goofy the first time he was on camera and alongside Neptune as comic relief. Michael has definitely played with the pitch though, probably as a result of more experience he's giving Sun his own voice instead of just using his normal speaking voice.

    • CloudedSun

      11 months ago

      @trequor he was first seen in The Stray in Volume 1. Sure, he was pretty humorous, but he was a lot less.... outrageously goofy, especially in Black and White, where at least he could settle down and listen to Blake.

  • SirLucidus

    11 months ago

    Geez, imagine how Blake feels. The quiet independent vigilante who wants to restore peace to Remnant realizes that she really DOESN'T know what to do. She's scared and confused like any other teenager would be in that situation. So she did the one thing she told herself she'd never do again: she ran. Far away from Adam, from Beacon, from the rest of team RWBY. Imagine how she feels, shamelessly displaying herself to her parents, showing them how fragile she actually may be on the inside. As someone who likes to be independent, the worst feeling you can have is that you can't do something on your own, especially when others can.


    (Like Ruby, who literally is traveling the world becoming a hero, even after all that she's seen and been through)

      Probably not. Just saying this off of how most faunus on the Island let their animal features be in plain sight. Going off of the last WoR I think its safe to say He's a really Buff human and would explain why Blake is a cat going off of her mother's more dominant genetic features. Like Qrow explained, mixing species could give you a child with completely different features.

      Why specifically Fox? I thought Coco and Velvet were the focus of that team

    • henshaw33

      11 months ago

      @ Mattlikethepaint Coco and Velvet were shown towards the end of Volume 3 in the big battle for Beacon, while Yatsuhashi was shown in the doubles battle with Coco as well as one of the people taking down the nevermore in the arena. Fox by comparison had at most a few cameos in Volume 3, the last time we actually saw him participate in something was Volume 2 when Grimm came through the tunnel and attacked Vale. So while overall asking where team CFVY is wold be a completely valid question, there's still the fact that Fox seems like he just disappeared at random.

    • Timbo33

      11 months ago

      I believe that the last time Fox is seen is when everyone what fighting the Nevermore in the coliseum with all the other students(I could be wrong). I would consider Fox as a minor part of team CVFY. Coco and Velvet where the main focus and Yatsu kinda important.

    The autoplay on this site keeps redirecting to a random barnd new video while playing the commercials before this episode. This causes it to say you need a paid First membership even though this episode was released a few days ago. It really is a nuisance unless you disable the autoplay (not possible in full-screen)!


    As far as this season is going, as much as I like meeting Team RWBY's families, I would like to see more action scenes that this show is so beloved for. Many say it will only be 12 episodes, and we are 5 episodes in with only one or two short fight scenes from Ruby and Team JNPR.

    Ummm, excuse me, maybe I'm late to the party, but did anyone else catch the part where Fennec said that Ghira used to be the leader of the White Fang???  This explains so much of why Blake would have joined the White Fang and feels so strongly about equality between Faunus and humans.  I mean, she didn't merely adopt the White Fang, she was (possibly) born into it, molded by it.  She didn't know anything else until she was already a woman!  


    Also, Blake's ears were adorable af in this episode, good job with this episode guys and gals!

    I kinda wanna know about Remnant Cosmology. Sun said that Menagerie is in a corner of Remnant. This is probably a figure of speech or a fourth wall break, but it does get into a bit more depth of the world around them. So is Remnant just one part of a larger world? Is the world flat? etc.
