    Nothing bad to say here. Great first episode, only problem is it's too short. I hear later seasons are better, hopefully longer too because this show is growing on me!

    I just realized that Qrow's entire character was based on using the podcast joke "ow that's my uncle!" And now he's one of the most important people lol

    These episodes aren't long enough, and the movie version is too disjointed, they need to bet cut together in digestible 22 minute length videos with the intro outro stuff removed from the middle. This way they could go on Adult Swim or something to, if Rooster Teeth ever wanted to.

    "My name is Glenda Goodwitch"

    ... I almost stopped watching after that. Love the reference, but hardly subtle.

    • PlasticShore

      i mean, yeah, but practically every main character is a reference to something. Ozpin= Oz, Goodwitch=good witch, Ruby is little red riding hood, etc. That's just one of the lesser-inspired names.

    I've never watched anime before but if Red vs. Blue is my favorite show ever. Of all time. Then would I enjoy this show?

    (I'm in a show hole right now so if someone could respond soon that be great)

    • HollowedFigure

      The animation style is a bit off setting but the story and characters are awesome. Comparing it to Red vs. Blue I would give this a try.

    Ruby's voice has become more childish as she ages... Here she sounds 15/16 but in volume 4 she sounds 5.

    is it me or has this animation be "retouched"?  looks a bit different then i recall.  and that's not a vol. 2-4 comparision.

    I've seen RWBY mentioned around the net alot but this is the first time seeing it; or even figuring out what it was. I love the art style reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles; which there should of been more sequels released on console (not psp).

    Oh crap, I thought "hmm heard so much about RWBY i'll just watch the first epidode before turning in" That was a huge mistake.....I'm not going to sleep tonight, i'll just be up watching all 3 seasons. Fantastic!

      Yeah. there's been a problem that I've been seeing on the website where you can't change the quality of older videos.

    whats with the new intro? That wasnt there the first time i watched this. The song was fine by itself and the story was already awesome (until season 3 where it went dark and the characters started dropping like flies. ) so why the extra monologue? It seems unnecessary.

    • ShadowDragon93

      1 year ago

      Maybe you just can't remember, but the narration was always there. The monologue at the end of Volume 3 is just a continue for this.

    • DescendFromShadows

      1 year ago

      Volume 3 going dark was actually really great! A LOT of character development and plot twists went down in that one. Maybe I'm just a fan of darker themes and the like, but I thought it added a lot of depth to the story.

    Who voices the intro???? It sounds oddly like Cortana and I'm surprised I didn't catch it the first time around.

    • SharkRepellent FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Not funny

      1 year ago

      It's literally Cortana (well, Jen Taylor but still).

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

      They got Jen Taylor (cortana) to do the intro for them.

    Well after the season finale from last weeks volume 3 my anger has finally quelled enough to come back and re watch all the episodes again. Maybe this time I can accept the death of a favorite character.

    Wow the beginning of this episode foreshadows so much. Explaining how eventually the academies will fall and darkness will return. Well with the newest episode of Volume 3 I think were approaching this point soon. I just cant imagine whats gonna happen in the finale.
