Hey! this is my third time writing this because this app hates me, (Microsoft Edge, i got my keyboard hooked up to my Xbox One since my Computer is broken lol) but i really did wanna post and share this with all of you, this may be obvious to some of you, but there might be others who have no idea, and even for those of you who know about most of this, i think i noticed something alot of people haven't yet that i can't wait to share. And of course this will contain huge spoilers for the series.
So, lets talk about the shows intro's.
Ever since Volume 3, the intro's to RWBY have told us allmost exactly what was gonna happen in the entire volume. So let's start with where i think this all started, Volume 3.
For Volume 3, the theme song for the intro was When It Falls. Even by the name alone you can tell where i'm going. The entire song told us what would happen, the fall of beacon, the bad guys winning in the end, it's all incredibly obvious. Even Pyrrha falling away from her team near the end, and in the beginning, while it shows JNPR the songs lyrics say "You fail to save them". Both the actual intro aswell as the song itself told us allmost exactly what was gonna happen, and even then still it took us by surprise, atleast it did for me, and i'm sure i wasn't the only one.
But now onto Volume 4. The theme for Volume 4 was Lets Just Live. It was clear, by the tone of the song, the lyrics and intro that, sure, some bad stuff might happen, but in the end time will mend our hearts, we will okay, so lets just live, knowing that we'll make it in the end. Admittedly there isn't much to go on besides the basic message, but in a funny twist of fate, that actually tells you everything you need to know, it told you nothing much would happen in this volume, and in the end it would be okay.
And now, lets move on to the most recent season, volume 5 and its intro, The Triumph. Already you know how this volume ends, the song is called the triumph, you can also tell by the pace and feel of the song that this volume is gonna have alot in it compared to the previous one.
There was alot in this intro, from Cinder and Raven being in the same place, the song also saying "All we need is a miracle." in that same scene. Salem in the end in a giant form, and even the song saying "We will endure" while showing Weiss near the end. and thats just some of it, there is even more, some of which ive likely forgotten, or haven't seen myself.
All in all, ever since Volume 3 every intro has told us in some way and form, and in some cases allmost in every way, what was gonna happen in their respective Volumes. Now then, do Volumes 1 (This Will Be The Day) and 2 (Time To Say Goodbye) do the same? honestly ive thought about it but i'm not sure.
Now before i wrap this up i have one more thing to share about the intro's. Chances are you might not have noticed, but ever since volume 1, every 2 volumes the names of the respective songs seem to form a statement of some kind. For example, here is Volumes 1 and 2.
This Will Be The Day, Time To Say Goodbye.
And here is Volumes 3 and 4.
When It Falls, Lets Just Live.
Both sound like they could be a statement of some kind, why? not sure, but it is interesting, and if this trend continues, then whatever the name of the next song is it will end up fitting with The Triumph in a statement of some kind, which so far is basicly just this.
The Triumph, ?????????.
What could it be and why is this happening? no idea, but i do know this, whatever the next volumes intro is, ima be paying VERY close attention to it.
Well friends, that's basicly it, anything about the intros you noticed? perhaps you know how Volumes 1 and 2 told us what would happen? maybe you know of even more ways Volumes 3 4 and 5 told us the future? share them all! and perhaps share your thoughts on the strange statement like messages the themes have created.
