Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

    This episode had something for the Freezerburn side of me, something for the Bumblebee side of me, something for the Black Sun side of me, and something for the Ninjas of Love side of me.


    Shipping is complicated.

    Alright, that last scene was kind of good. I would have appreciated a little more blood to be shown, or perhaps some of that weird aura floaty effect, but hey, at least something is happening. And hey, Ilia is the first major character to be confirmed gay. Nice! For the record, I am kind of with Ilia. In Volume 1, when Cardin was bullying Velvet, not a single person came up to help her. If you don't defend the bunny girl, then you have it coming.

      Dude, Velvet was a Second Year who was being bullied by FIRST YEARS. She could've simply asked her team and they would've put them in their places. Or she could've handled them herselves. You've seen how strong she is at the end of Volume 3. She could've easily taken on and defeated the 4 of them if she wanted to do.

      @Jaune_Black_Smudge I'm fully aware of those facts, but: a) I HIGHLY doubt that RT had the CFVY thing planned out at that point, and I would bet that Velvet was originally meant to be a one-off character to show instances of Faunus racism. But the audience naturally fell for the bunny girl, so they decided to expand her character. I am not 100% sure this is what happened, but I am willing to bet this is the case.

      b) Whether or not Velvet was a second year, people still should have intervened, because being a bystander in that circumstance, when you have superpowers and the ability to stop the conflict, is frankly inexcusable. Both Team RWBY and JNPR should have intervened at that moment, and it actually detracted from them as characters when none of them went to help Velvet.

    Wait...

    So, faunus can have two animal traits? Or more, if we count Ghira's roar? Because his was already his cat feet.

      The cat feet aren't a certainty yet, but if they are I'd say they go with his claws as all his nails are probably retractable. The roar though...maybe he just practices that for fun. :P

      I think we all just assumed that because of how his shoes looked (with the likeness of feline toes) but obviously it was his claws all the time... Unless it's both finger and toes nails that extend into claws.

      I think the raw was him getting real, real angry :)

    Being gay doesn't make her more sympathetic just pointing that out. Broke teeth for being racist, attacks innocent people, and agreed to help kill her love interest family (seriously what is Blake's thing with psychos falling for her).


    Holy shit Ghira is a boss.

    Did everybody ever expect that things would get bad in Menagerie at all? Of course not. But as things are coming together, let's remind ourselves this: If the family dies... the chance of restoring the proper glory of the Faunus would die with them. :) Good thing that things are turning well for the plot. But still... it's too short.


    So this is really a chapter? Really? Really? Really? Really? Really?

    And WTF?!?  They end it with Ghira going all berserker mode?  Well, shit.  Loved this episode overall.

    Managed to avoid hitting reload on the page just as the video came up for once, that’s neat. 

    That hair boop is adorable! 

    Weiss, bringer of coffee, the true MVP with lots of cream and sugar for Ruby!

    And the Blake bomb dropped, Yang feels she made her choice, she is understandably bitter. 

    Yeah Yang is still on a hair trigger, welp one head canon about her views on Blake leaving being busted, but I guess that’s not a huge surprise. 

    Illia no passing notes in class. 

    Sun stop dismissing Blake’s feeling as brooding and ooh nocturnal section, I like that world building detail. 

    Yang is staring, stroking Blake’s form on her pic of the team, feels. 

    Weiss coming to speak to Yang, she thought it was Ruby but its best team mate! 

    Yang come on, you know Weiss’s family is mostly shit. 

    Why is she calling Summer just Ruby’s mom!?

    Yang had to raise Ruby, I love it! 

    Wow, Jac is shitty, confessing he didn’t love Weiss’s mom on Weiss’s birthday and it broke Weiss’s mum :( 

    We are learning about Weiss’s mum’s fall, sad to hear, different than what I expected, still very sad. 

    Yang needed Blake and wanted to be there for her! 

    Weiss is so wise and sees RWBY as her family! 

    And now back to Blake, ominous! 

    Oh shit Blake has been caught! 

    Spider Faunus, surprise attack! 

    Illia’s perspective is understandable even if she does go too extreme. 

    Blake gave an armor piercing statement! 

    Illia had a thing or Blake, uncomfortable intro to the first openly LGBTQ+ character. 

    Ugh Sun save, Blake being damselled. Also Menagerie has police. Still, at least Sun was invited this time, clever on Blake’s part. 

    Dammit Illia!

    Dang it, I was hoping Kali was the fighter!

    Granted her demanding they get out of her house was cool, but still. 

    Big claws, big growl, big fang, liking the added Fuanus traits. 

    The brothers have shiny swords.

      Blake wasn't damselled, she used herself as bait in case Illiya turned on her, and didn't need Sun's help to break out of the webbing and KO spidergirl. If Sun came without Blake's knowledge and did everything himself, that would be a damsel scenario.
