I don't mean to come across as the sort of guy that just likes to bash things.I like the series a lot, but it's rather hard to enjoy it when there is basically no praise and all criticism.I think this still has a lot of potential despite the controversial 4th volume. But i'm having my doubts. The characters are great and the world is interesting, but it's marred by bad writing, like the silver eye deus ex machina and nothing getting done with the plot aside from some slight developments in vol 4, telling and not showing, like the human/faunus hate that hasn't really been seen, characters handled badly, like with Blake not being shown as the sympathetic girl we feel bad for, and made too mean spirited and almost dumb, and Ruby just not getting any development. ect. The worst part is it seems that the writing went sour in 3 and got worse in 4, and it seems like nothing will improve, I don't know if Miles and Kerry are still putting their best effort into it or what, or if we need some new writers or reviewers added. I honestly want to hear some news other than things getting worse, and is there anything us viewers can do about this?
