    Actually that isnt fully true.

    While fight scenes are more complicated a conversation especially ones focused on the face are NOT easier to animate.

    We humans are VERY good at reading faces eyes and body language.

    So having the complex interactions come across well and not wooden

    Is not as easy as people think it is.


    It actually takes a lot of work.


    Detail shots like close in are ALWAYS more difficult to make it come across well. More distant like in the case of fighting are easier because you dont need the details to be perfect because the audience wont see them as well.

    Alright fine, I was wrong on that. I actually didn't realize it was just as hard.


    Still though, the way they approached the conflicts was rather questionable at best, I will maintain that part of my argument

    Yeah it can be hard here is a simple example

    Just the direction the eyes are looking can change an expression and up close you will see it.

    Head tilts expressions and so on are really hard to animate well and the fact RWBY does it so well says they put a LOT of time and effort into them which helps sell the characters.

    Now as for the fights and cut aways that is more then fair. Notice my issue was not the question on fights only that conversations were easier they are not they dont have as much complication to them as Fights do but in exchange they have LOTS of details to them.

    Naruto's you can make bigger in fact that is the point of many early missions to stretch the chakara and make it get bigger.

    Also unlike Chakara which is just the energy source and learning how to do Jutsus is just a matter of practice and being able to use the element Aura doesnt have any of that.

    Anyone can use any Dust but everyone has ONE Semblances and while they learn how to use it in new ways its still the same ability just applied in fun ways.

    I definitely see what your saying now. Thank you for explaining it for me.


    And thank you for seeing what im saying. Really it just bothers me that they took such a lackluster approach to combat this season. Like I can't even be angry anymore Im just flat out disappointed in them.

    Right now anything is possible.

    In reply to emilyblack

    No problem a lot of people dont realize how hard animating a conversation really is because it does seem so simple.


    I think the reason why is they bite off more then they can chew with the Raven vs Cinder fight. It shouldnt have happened but at least they know that it shouldnt and are clearly trying to fix the issue for the future.

    Let's just hope that they really do fix some stuff. No disrespect personally to them, but after the clusterf*ck that Volume 4 was and all the complaints about the fights they should have brought the Death Battle gang in for Volume 5. Waiting till 6 was the wrong move to make.


    That's why I question how aware they really are about some stuff. Like they say they see it, but then Volume 5 was mostly the same issues wise

    That's right. One thing is to say "I don't like this, and here's why", and another very different is yelling "OMG you're such morons you ruin everything!", without making any observation or suggestion. Sadly, this second one is much more common.


    In reply to HunterBlaine

    While I do agree the fight scenes were not as good as I feel they could've been, I doubt it is due to laziness. Making a show like this one requires a balance between a lot of things. They cannot focus on one single aspect of it, no matter how much we want them to.

    That assumes they could bring in for Vol 5 they may not have been able to.

    Keep in mind Death Battle is screwattack not Roosterteeth and that can and will effect just how easy it is to merge teams like that.

    So its entirely possible Death Battle coming in full time wasnt possible till now.


    Vol 5 and Vol 4 had different issues.

    Vol 4 had too many storylines which Vol 5 closed out all of them and streamlined them back into one plot line. The Fights in 4 were because they were splitting focus too much.

    Vol 5 issue was the opposite too much focus on one fight.


    So its not the same issue and its a real case of them finding that balance.

    The problem with Volume 5 was the constan cutaways and off screen action. That made it seem like they were trying to get out of actually animating the fights by just saying 'oh most of that happened already' or something


    So it gives fuel to the people who cry that its laziness

    It certainly made the final fight scene confusing and anticlimactic, plus highlighting how absolutely cheap the Weiss fakeout death was. 

    In reply to emilyblack

    Is that why the fight scenes sucked so much this volume?

    The fact that ANY question that mentioned Pyrrha, even if she wasn't even the focus of it, was not answered, is a MAJOR red flag.

    Ah figured that was what it was but I have been fielding questions on the AMA for a bit so I was like Brain be broke.


    Yeah I dont think a single Pyrrha related was answered and some of those were good questions like does Aura have a sliding cost scale. 


    Some of those would be after the AMA was over but not all and some if I recall were right next to a question that got answered.

    1. Much of the action in RWBY will now be done by Kim Newman, and she's really good, all the really good action done in Vol 4 and 5 was done by her.


    2. Its interesting but yeah in my experience people in 3d can be really good in specific things, like some modelers are good at making weapons while others are really good at characters. Same goes for animations, some can be really good with Action scenes while they may have not been as good with quieter moments or when less stuff was happening, Monty was actually like this apparently.

    Taking a second look, I guess that kiss scene was right before the end.
