    I would only leave it its just not done well and is some convenient Deus Ex Machina. Unless there is a very good reason for her not to be dead, unless there is a very important role for her to fill, whether as a good or bad guy, she should really stay dead.

    Here's a better question, why was Cinder's arrow glowing red when it hit Pyrrha and better question, why turn her body to ashes, what does that accomplish exactly, just to rub it in?



    Red particles instead of squirting blood. Censorship Yang disarmament style.

    Yeah, they had to rub it in, to make it more painful for us.

    EDIT: It wouldn't be the first time Miles and Kerry would do that.

    Earlier I said that the voice actor of Pyrrha slipped out that there are big plans for Pyrrha. The source is the Friday stream. Check it out to verify.

    Well...all paladins are kinda..no actually OP in regards to all source material. Bubble...need I say anymore?


    Also, Juane really isn't that OP...not yet anyway. Besides, the healing this makes the most sense since we have alreay seen in it the episodes.

    I don't think that's what the show is about. Its too convenient! Its meant to be about the exact opposite. That is part of what Pyrrha's death represented!

    I don't thinks, they have elements form all types of story genres. Ranging from Mech all the way to Fantasy. I still don't think its too far fetched.

    This is what I think Monty wanted Pyrrha's death to represent, given the dark turn that the show has taken:


    There was a purpose behind it - to show that even someone so seemingly important and powerful can die in vain and fade into history ... its really nihilistic but I like how it was presented with Pyrrha's death, if that is what they are going for ...

    While its true that Pyrrha death in no way helped save Beacon or really bought much time (not even a Pyrrhic victory ... just a defeat) Pyrrha death is important in the emotional and character development of the remaining heroes.


    That is why I believe paladin jaune who revives pyrrha is a farfetched idea.


    Also, why the hell is jaune's sword and shield called Crocea Mors? That's Julius Caesar's sword! Excalibur and Arondight are way better. Excalibur is meant to symbolize the responsibility of power and Arondight is meant to symbolize "the perfect knight", the strongest, bravest and truest knight of an era.

    I think she meant the epic fight Pyrrha had with Cinder. My favourite fight of this volume btw.

    Perfect atmosphere, good choreography, decent animation, simply epic and it had the most impact.

    Didn't Monty say that none of the main 8 characters where going to die until after Volume 8? I still say that Juane is someone of holly power.

    Note: I say paladin and holly as substitute terms, I am sure RT will have there own take on what to call the semblance.

    This must be important! Now I have to make researches about Crocea Mors' meaning. FUUUUUU XP

    Am I really the only one who thinks that excalibur or arondight are much more symbollically sensible names than crocea mors?

    Excalibur would make sense, if he was based around King Arthuer. But his name makes it obvious he's based on Joan of Arc, who was French. So giving him a weapon based around King Arthur wouldn't make much sense.

    I feel sad knowing Pyrrha never fulfilled her destiny other than being the mentor for Jaune and awakening Ruby's power...it looks like the destiny of a great warrior would be for Ruby and Jaune...that sucks!


    well atlest its not like in naruto...where neji was like oh destiny can be changed and then masashi kishimoto was like NOPE YOU ARE GONNA DIE IN WAR LIKE YO FATHERRRRR


    and naruto is like yeah destiny boy all along cause he is the son of 4th hokage and his mother who was a vessel for jinchuriki..


    DANG IT

    Maybe its a connection for the Greek and Roman inspired character that both Pyrrha and Juane are heavily influenced by...but that is a pure guess.

    Apparently it was said in an interview. Me and another are searching for said evidence. Will inform you when we find out.

    *Sigh* I just want to Juane deck Cinders ass the same way Blazer did to the Lich king in Part Three of Tales of the Past. Look it up on youtube and you'll understand why I keep saying Juane is a Paladin.

    Sorry gents just had to get it out of my system.

    Well then how about a french sword?

    La Pucelle - symbolizes jaune's innocence at the beginning of the series

    Fleur-de-Lys - symbolizes his lineage

    Durendal - symbolizes his perseverance (durendal is derived from from the French "durer", "to endure"

    Well once we find that proof then that will be most of the evidence we need for now and can obtain for the time being.

    I was more worried for Roman, but more surprised for Pyrrha. I did not expect Pyrrha to die, but it does make sense that good guys taking on more than the main characters are raising a death flag. But also, I was expecting her to go out in some sort of Pyrrhic Victory. Unless we're counting whatever Ruby did as that.

    Durendal even fits with the whole paladin theme
