      I was wondering that too but as it turns out, yesteryear is indeed a real word, unlike the others.

    Did anyone notice in the shot with cinder and spring that it looks like cinder has a black mask over her injured eye. I dunno if maybe thats just her hair or something though.

    • luminedracone

      3 weeks ago

      No, you are right, it is a mask. We first see it at the start of Vol 4 Chapter 1 when Cinder is first seen after the injures that were inflicted upon her by Ruby's Silver Eyes Power. Tyrian also mentioned that she lost an eye.

    • datankster411

      pretty sure the mask was in vol 4 as well.

    can anyone get a screenshot right before team RWBY fades into petals at the end? I can't seem to get it.  


    Edit: Nevermind, I got it. I don't know how to add screen shots in, but ruby is smiling,Weiss is pointing myrtenaster (I'm not sure how to spell it) at Salem, Blake is using her gun form, and yang is punching (duh)

    I like it but I just noticed there is like no Jaune except for 1 sec in this op but the others got more screen time, and it wasn't even a pose he was sitting in the background lol

      I know right! Hopefully he has some good fight scenes in there or I'm going to be disappointed.

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

      Right. Robotic limbs cannot produce or transmit aura. If you rewatch the battle with James Ironwood (half robot) vs the Grimm... his gun is in his flesh-hand the whole time. That’s why the invention of Penny was so amazing; a robot who has and can use an aura.

    • SirLucidus

      3 weeks ago

      but aura can be transferred to objects. That's how they keep their weapons durable.

    BRING IT ON VOLUME 5! Anyone else treat themselves to new RWBY merch to kick off this amazing premiere?

  • Talitha.Luna

    Could it be that the woman that Cinder faced in the intro is the Spring Maiden? I mean since Cinder is now the Fall Maiden it would make sense. Its just weird to see a Maiden with tattoos and stuff, but I guess if you spend 10 years with a bandit tribe you'll get tattoos too.

    I wonder they're going to have a face-off, Cinder and the Spring Maiden. That would be cool to watch happen.

    I also hope Team RWBY is going to get together soon! I miss seeing them all together.

    All in all, I am SO excited to watch the rest of the season!! You guys in RoosterTeeth are the best!!

    Well for starters the new song is awesome Casey pulled is top notch again..buuuuuut the animation team slighty disappointed me.

    Before the flames come hear me out.

    What I don't like in this volume and previous one was the anime feel of the Animation vol 1-3 had it's unique style while those two start to look like your usual anime thing (Giant Salem from attack on Grimm is an  example) I wish they would go back to the form of the previous volumes which were awesome imo.

    also the pacing, some scenes do not match the rythm of the speed of the music which put me slightly off. I wish RT would just go with their own style instead of copying a trend make by anime. It was their great selling points during vol 1 that drawn the first fans (myself included) and I with that would stay.

    • LoH500

      4 weeks ago

      Just curious, what sections in the animation do you think don't match the music?

    • CarryOn88

      4 weeks ago

      LoH500 for example the part with Sun and Blake was slighty off to me, the part with chamelon girl and two dudes too

    I also got to say I think the begining and middle of the outro are good. Its just the end part I don't like. But all in all still a good opening.

      I feel the same. I will definitely hold out for the complete song with the OST comes out. Triumph also had a better first impression than Let's Just Live. I liked it more down the line but I have confidence that Triumph will blow us away like When It Falls (or whatever your favorite is).

    I dunno the intro could use some work, the animation just doesn't seem paced well with the soundtrack. Reply with your opinion about the new intro below :D

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

      I've re-watched it multiple times to study it and it definitely has "some" parts that are in tune with the soundtrack but most of it is too slow or fast / out of sync :(


      The critique aside, the soundtrack and animation are excellent, but they don't work superb together

      I honestly think that's the worst line in the entire song. It's way too easy, and a bit too on the nose, so to speak. There's no subtlety. Nothing nuanced about it, which people can dissect.

    I like the song, but I feel like the pacing with the video is kinda... off... 

    I dunno, maybe its just me. I feel like the character movement and angles have better matched up to the tempo and tone of the music in the prior seasons. 


    I do enjoy both the video and the music on their own.
