My RWBY V3Ch2 Kommentary/Rmblings/Thoughts (Crossposted on BMGf):

[Team JNPR vs Team BRNZ, continued from the previous episode]

BRNZ Sniper's design is g8
What is this screencap even from
an RT Recap?

Welcome to Pooh Ren Corner:

Hello darkness my old friend...

Look at 'im he's like a scared lil' kitten 83

And then Nolan ends up zapping him right in the gut.
Man just ask the giant deathstalker how well trying to take out Ren went
you do not mess with Ren without feeling the wrath of Nora (งò_ó)ง

Wow not even trying to hide your blatant favoritism (Not that I blame him because Nora but on international [interkingdomal?] television and after that awkward moment where he winked at Yang in "The Badge and the Burden")

I was not expecting her semblance to be electricity-related (although this make me want my Electric/Fighting kangaroo Pokémon even more).
Related link: One very likely scenario for how she discovered her semblance.

Jaune getting hit by the recoil of the attack via his shield lol

Yang droppin' the rock facts wrote:Ruby: Yeah! Go get em', Jaune!
Weiss: Well, he's certainly improved.
Yang: Yeah, but he ain't got nothing on Pyrrha!

With RT's admitted weakness of animating walk/run cycles, I think the dynamic shots of this fight managed to camouflage them pretty well.

Ren: Since... when?
#rt just never gets the flower names right…

Jaune: Guys, we've been over this! Flower Power is Ren and Nora! Ren brings the flower, Nora brings the power!
Ren: How do I bring a flower?
Nora: No, silly, not a flower! Flour, like in baking!
Ren: Why would I bring that?
Ren don't be so modest you'd blow away the competition with your snickerdoodles

This whole exchange starts off pretty good and playful, but after this point it becomes a bit too hokey for me with the delivery and how it was drawn out.

OHKO by Nora to wrap the whole thing up gd

Oaky wrote:I was frustrated because I'm not sure how Cinder and co had any influence on that win but are they saying they knew all that would happen? I probably worry about Cinder's faction and their plans too much xD
Unless Team BRNZ was working for them (which I doubt), I think that line was thrown in there to reinforce what evil masterminds™ they all are with their nefarious vague plans that shall not be discussed©. (so spoopy) They know JNPR will win because they have spent weeks/months studying their "chess pieces" and have learned of all their strengths and capabilities, so the outcome of the match was decided before it began.

Also his arms are broken in like several places
You really have to admire his dedication, holding up that picture despite his obvious injuries
such selflessness, such love

Speaking of Scarlet,

I repeat part III
THERE THEY ARE!!!
NOT JUST AN OPENING SHOT OR SOME LITTLE SPECKS IN THE CORNER OF THE SCREEN FOR TWO SECONDS
BUT IN THE FLESH!!

I had been expecting Gavin to voice Scarlet after hearing some rumblings about it so hearing his voice here was no surprise. Initially I'd imagined something more... slick? Because of his hair (Idk). No marks against him though; he did a good job.
His immortal first line wrote:Scarlet: I hope I don't get sand in my shoes. ._.
Sage though... I'm not familiar with Josh Ornelas, and we only got to hear one line from him and some grunts and screaming before he got a ringout.
Digging his design and tattoos though, especially his roman numeral clock neck

Weiss sounded very muted here; I'd underline it for emphasis but there was none wrote:Weiss: Good luck, Neptune!
Neptune: Ladies. ;D
Weiss: Break his stupid face, NDGO!

Speaking of NDGO now:

AHAHA look at his face

Also I liked that Blake delivered the explanation of Neptune's reaction to her teammates. Short of actual onscreen interaction since the dance, it's nice to have implied Black Sun interaction (whether it end in platonic or official couple status).

I think it's sort of therapeutic for Blake to be spending time with Sun. While he's no doubt experienced racism due to his heritage, the point at which we meet Sun in volume 1 shows him being completely open about it. He could reasonably be capable of hiding his tail [though it'd probably cause some discomfort, if he had to, I think he could.], but chooses not to. He's comfortable with who he is.

In contrast, Blake's hidden her heritage for some period of time, during which she probably heard a slew of racial slurs and diatribes against faunus. I'm not sure ashamed would be the right word here, but it undoubtedly had some effect on her.
Obviously she has her teammates that she can open up to (especially Yang!! I'm up for Black Sun or BumbleBy Endgame or whatever the OT3 name is for them even though that stunt she pulled with the laser pointer in "Burning the Candle" was kinda racist from an in-universe perspective), but as much as they want to help, they haven't experienced the same prejudice and discrimination as she and Sun do. (It's been awhile since we've seen any anti-faunus actions being taken. I might have missed some subtle microaggressions being directed at them but iirc no such thing has been shown up to this point.) Having someone to talk to and relate to regarding that, I think it helps them both.

Having said all of that, just how did she find out? Was she hanging out with all of Team SSSN at a beach or pond or pool and it came up? Or did Sun reveal it to her? (I can't see Neptune readily bringing it up with her, even if it isn't as closely guarded of a secret as his inability to dance.)
If it's the latter, lol Sun's chiding Neptune to keep secrets under wraps in "Best Day Ever" but then he turns around and blabs about that

And then the nuts pun, ohoho

Sun: Uh, Neptune? Could use some help, buddy!
Neptune: Uh, you know, uh, it would probably be better if you came over here! Yeah, I can guard this... sector! We're in lockdown mode!
This exchange reminded me of 'The Puppetyville Horror' episode of Bravest Warriors. wrote:"What're you doin' over there, when you could be over here?"
In contrast to the prolonged portion of JNPR's battle dialogue I felt this bit was overall much more natural and smooth. Neptune's twitchy behavior helped, haha.

Another group knockout.

Idk that tiptoeing soundeffect and this gave me a Looney Tunes vibe

Oaky wrote:I thought RWBY's fight in the previous episode was better than the two from this one. The whole disturbance with team JNPR's "team meeting" and the ensuing argument was pretty funny and Nora was a complete badass! HAHA!
Is it just me, or did the fights seem a little more... low key this episode. It just didn't feel quite as epic most of the time. There were some cool shots, but even the big attacks just didn't feel very big and there was a lot of running around and dialogue in the middle of the battles.
Yeah, I expected this episode to have less oomph than last week's. The animation was very good and better than the first two volumes but less fluid in the fights than the previous episode. There were two fights this episode, that may have to do with it. Plus I imagine the budget for this episode wasn't as high as the premiere's. and and the lack of a loud vocal track, though the score is always very good for RWBY
Agreed. Initially I was a bit disappointed that JNPR's and SSSN's respective fights weren't treated as seriously as RWBY's, but I'm guessing they're made to be more lighthearted to balance things out (especially SSSN after "Breach" when half of their team wasn't there to help with the Grimm invasion, and the half that was there did jack shit.) If that's the case, I can accept that. I'd rather have more of the budget and time focused on Team RWBY.

[Back to the Punny Bar]
Spoiler:
I'm not entirely sure why I like Qrow so much in this shot but I do. I think it's his expression; He's a man on a mission. wrote:
Bartender: Now that was a match!
Qrow: Heh, that was a mess!
Bartender: Come on man, you didn't like them, the Vale kids, or any of the rounds before that? What fight are you here for?
Qrow: *spots Winter's ship* That one. *finishes his drink and tosses a few Lien on the counter* Happy Vytal Festival!
Bartender: Aw, gee darn it.
I still don't understand how their currency works. They look like credit cards and Qrow just left a couple of them there? Are they gift cards?? Why don’t I spend more time on my accounting homework instead of thinking about this???

Initially I had assumed that Qrow and Winter would just happen to cross paths and that he was attending the Vytal Festival to
1.) Discuss things with Ozpin and co.
2.) See his family.

I'm not sure why though. A Schnee attending the tournament is probably par the course, so it wouldn't be too hard to run into them.

Agreeing with the both of you, there is one fine mix of emotions packed into those two words. Nervousness, happiness, love, adoration

which is what's going to make this turn in the plot all the more delicious and heartbreaking TwT

I am so ready for the Freezerburn wrote:THIS SEASON IS SETTING UP FOR INTENSE YANG & WEISS SISTERLY BONDING TBH

“I! AM! YOUR! SISTER! NOW!”

Pyrrha politely going up to a stand that is using her image without her permission and going “Wow these are very nice but please don’t do this. I don’t charge people for photos of me, or my autographs, and I don’t find it right that anyone else should either.” but the vendor cops an attitude so she takes the table and flips it like Jesus in the temples since it is a metal table she crushes it into a small ball and it rolls away….. oh no…. how could that have happened…. well goodbye.

And then Blake's face in this last panel

And and then then it's a long read but one good potato (I wouldn't even mind the time traveling if this theory became canon)

Some remaining questions (a few of many):

    Also I know Grimm Lady was credited as Raven Branwen, but if Neo's semblance is illusions...?
  • Silver eyes?? Shattered moon?? Metaphorical shattered mirrors in the new opening??
KAY EM

As always I love reading your ramblings. I may have a nice long response at some point, but I wanted to address one of your remaining questions
Spoiler:
(re:Neo disguising herself as Raven)---I hope that's not true. That would be scary xD But I wish we would get some follow up on that.

In the wiki, Raven is listed as Yang's mother. Also, they have Qrow's last name as Branwen. I'm wondering/hoping she'll make an appearance this volume but if not, at least get some closure there.
OAKS

Why thank ya. :3c If not, no worries, my rmbls can get very wordy lol

Spoiler:
Indeed, which makes it all the more delicious. >:3c There's so many possibilities with characters who can create illusions, including conjuring up their enemies biggest fears or posing as people they can about to get closer to them. It makes things all the sweeter when those characters finally manage to break through said illusions.
Assuming this extends beyond visual illusions, what if Neo constantly changes her voice in conversations like she does with her eyes? Maybe she has a default voice that she favors, but there'd always be the mysterious of whether it was her actual voice. Again, so many possibilities to mess with any of her enemies, I love the thought of it. <3

Raven Branwen's Wiki Entry wrote:Her relationship with Qrow Branwen is currently unknown, other than they were in the same team in the past and have the same surname.
Siblings does seem to be the most likely relationship at this point though.

Branwen is Welsh, meaning "blessed white raven/crow," which corresponds to her first name. Raven can refer to a number of bird species in the genus Corvus, or in reference to the color black.
"Qrow Crow" and "Raven Raven" lol

She wears the same necklace as Neo and Coco Adel.
If Coco wasn't wearing the same one I'd think it was that Raven and Neo were both part of some sort of association/group/whatever, but it's more likely RT just wanted to give Coco a necklace and went with a design that was already present in the system lol. I don't mind being proven wrong though.

  • Her mask appears to be a more elaborately-styled version of the Grimm masks worn by the White Fang.
    Notably, her mask and feathered hair give her an appearance markedly similar to a Nevermore, likely referencing her name.
  • Raven is the second person in the series shown to use an Iaijutsu fighting style, with the first being Adam.
The person who wrote the time travel theory I linked to in my earlier post believes this scenario is much more likely than that:

  • Neo was fearful immediately
  • White Fang mask
  • Red eyes
  • Protective of Yang
  • Did not want to be seen by Yang
  • Elements of each of team RWBY (Ruby's collapsible weapon and color scheme; Weiss's Myrenaster dust mod/revolver chamber; Blake's White Fang background and broad weapon with two handles/Gambol Shroud's pistol grip; Yang's gauntlets, boot/shorts or skirt combo)
  • Also l can't ignore the connection to Adam: Traditional dress style, similar fighting style, unigue White Fang mask
  • Mask may represent that she is "Queen" of the White Fang
  • Blood on boots
My conclusion is that she is Momma Yang, who is also the leader of the White Fang. She will be voiced by Jen Taylor and is the true Big Bad. She took Blake and Adam under her wing for training, and recognizes her pupil is now teamed with her daughter, and is keeping a watchful eye on them.

Adam styled his weapon and fighting style after her, Blake backed away after Momma Yang took control of the White Fang through a bloody coup. Fitting that the Queen would have the most grand mask, correct?
Guys, I think I also have another clue that this is Momma Yang. At 13:04 in this episode, when she's looking down on Yang before leaving, it sounds like a reprise of when Yang is talking about her mom leaving in Vol. 2 Ch. 6 (Burning the Candle) at 6:40.

I maybe wrong, and this is probably getting buried, but please, someone else give it a listen and tell me what you think.

The times aren't exact, but that's the about where it is. Not a huge sample to go off of, and different instruments, but I hear it, and it's worth taking a look at I think.
The two sections of music have very similar tones and if I'm right they have the same note pattern and key, just one got gussied up to match the surrounding scenes better. I could be very wrong, I'm am only a drummer.
If she is affiliated with the White Fang, I don't think she's the leader, or at least not the current one. It seems more likely that she split from the group when the current leader took over (either by choice or by force), and has been causing problems for the current WF administration and Cinder and co.

Whether she's of the same alignment as our heroes remains to be seen, but I don't think she's aligned with Cinder based on what little we've seen of her so far.

I watched the four Team RWBY trailers prior to the series premiere and my interest peaked on... probably about a small hill, nowehere near Mt. Everest levels, but it did lead me to picking up the series. (Yang's is the best, followed by Weiss', Ruby's, and then Blake's trailer.)

It took me until the fifth chapter/eighth episode of Volume 1 to start climbing to higher ground, but I was still sort of wavering until the last two episodes of the volume (especially after four weeks of the sluggish Jaune arc in chapters 7 and 8/episodes 11-14; they're not completely unwatchable, but maaaaan are they the weakest point of the volume.)

Now, I speak to you from the top of Mt. Everest.

My favorite moments from Volumes 1 and 2 (posting here since social groups will soon be deleted):
Metata in the RWBY sogro on November 21, 2014 wrote:

  • Team RWBY vs the giant Nevermore. (set to "Red Like Roses Part II")
"The Badge and the Burden:"

    Nora: "[popping her head up] Pancakes!"
  • Blake's conversation with Ozpin in the flashback.
  • Team RWBY's conversation about how they'll proceed with the White Fang.
    - Weiss openly acting like the huge dork she is around RBY. (I wish we could have seen the bonding moments that led to her being comfortable enough to act like this, buuuut I still enjoy this scene.)
    - Yang: "Yes! I love it when you're [Blake] feisty!" (I laugh every time she says this line.)
    - Blake: "All right then, we're in this together!" (RWY showing Blake she doesn't have to face her concerns alone. :'3)
"A Minor Hiccup":
  • Team RWBY showing off their new outfits.
  • Ruby trying to kick Neptune out of their dorm room.
  • Ruby and Weiss interactions.
  • Schnee Dust Company com operator revealing Weiss has a sister named Winter. (Any background on Team RWBY is great in my book.)

  • Yang returning to Junior's club in style.
  • Blake and Sun interactions in general while infiltrating the White Fang meeting.
    - Sun's disguise being nothing but him buttoning-up his shirt and a Grimm mask (because Roman would recognize those abs better than anyone after their last encounter. B) )
  • Team RWBY vs Roman in the prototype Atlesian Paladin-290 set to "Die." (and then Neapolitan swooping in to save his ass at the tail end of it).
    - Special mention to RT using the FNDM's ship names for their attack combos (and Ice Flower; it works).
    - Also Weiss trying to emulate Yang and make a terrible pun ("Well at least I'm trying!" Yes Weiss I know and I love you all the more for it. ¦'3)
"Extracurricular":
  • Pyrrha fabulously kicking Team CRDL's asses without breaking a sweat.
  • Mercury vs. Pyrrha and the subsequent discussion between Cinder and co. about her in relation to their super top secret plans™ (that don't actually go anywhere this volume from what we can see).
  • RWY holding an intervention for Blake. (I really just like any Team RWBY bonding time because of how rarely we actually see it in progress.)
"Burning the Candle":
  • Weiss and Yang arguing over party decorations (I imagine this is a fair summary of their entire planning process).
  • Jaune going to Ren for girl advice while he's in nothing but a towel.
    - Ren and Nora's reactions to Jaune's assumption that they're together.
    - Pyrrha being the selfless goddess that she is encouraging Jaune to be honest with Weiss about his feelings for her and supporting him in general
    (not getting into how poorly the Jaune/Neptune/Pyrrha/Weiss love polyhedron was handled).
    - Nora: "Practice what you preach, Pyrrha." (I loved this line because all of Nora's other lines are her being the super strong hyper/energetic/quirky girl. It was nice seeing this side of her.)
  • Yang's monologue about her and Ruby's childhood. (Some say this felt out of place/shoehorned in. For me, it is my favorite Miles Luna info dump. Barb really nailed it imo.)
    - Yang: "I'm not asking you to stop. Just please, get some rest. Not just for you, but for the people you care about."
    - Yang: "And if you feel like coming out tomorrow, I'll save you a dance. [wink]" (Blake is pretty physically and emotionally exhausted at this point so I don't think Yang would take advantage of her/be asking for an actual romantic relationship or anything during this whole conversation [although I do like BumbleBy], but I see it more as a "I'm here for you" type of friendship deal.)

  • Yang squeeing over Ruby's prom outfit.
    - Ruby: "Can we have a serious talk about how Weiss fights in these?" (ignoring that she chases after Cinder and fights her while wearing them in the next episode. In-universe-wise, I'm surprised she didn't just break the heels off, or have her boots stashed nearby/in her locker with Crescent Rose, or go after Cinder barefoot.)
  • Sun's idea of formal wear being a buttoned-up black version of his shirt and a tie.
    - Sun: "Stupid... dumb... neck trap!"
    Blake: "[Off-screen] I knew you'd look better in a tie." (that callback to "The Stray" <3)

  • Blake and Yang's dance.
  • Blake having a good time at prom after all the stress she'd been under.
  • Ozpin's conversation with Ruby.
    - Ruby: "Stupid...lady...stilts." (the similarity between Sun's and Ruby's lines is funny because their VAs are married irl [/meta])
"Dance Dance Infiltration":
  • Jaune living up to his word and showing up to prom in a dress after finding out Pyrrha had gone unasked.
  • Team JNPR dancing to "Shine."
    and all the alternate takes:

  • Cinder being a BAMF archer/swordswomen/spy. (despite the rendering of her on the roof being terrible.) (It would have been better to dress up as a White Fang member or wear something that had more coverage, but that wouldn't have been as sexy. :u)
"Field Trip":
  • Zwei's introduction:
    - Weiss' and Blake's reactions to said introduction.

  • Ozpin's conversation with Team RWBY revealing he is well aware of all their shenanigans.
  • Team CFVY making their first appearance.
"Search and Destroy":
  • Nora: "Save the world? You're going on world-saving missions without us? I'm hurt! Sad! ...Maybe a little hungry? That last one's not your fault, though; Ren."
    Ren: [crosses his arms in a huff and turns away]
  • Oobleck asking WBY why they became Hunters.
    - WBY questioning their reasoning.
  • Oobleck's conversation with Ruby about his approach to making Remnant a better place.
"Mountain Glenn":
  • WBY mulling over the answers they gave to Oobleck in the previous episode with each other, trying to figure out what they actually are and how to best articulate them. (Because to be fair, if you ask kids about what their future career plans are a lot of them can't give you a detailed answer on the spot [me included])
    - WBY background.
    - Blake namedropping Adam in the series proper.
"No Brakes":
  • Yang being curbstomped by Neo.
    - Mysterious Grimm Lady, whose mere presence is enough to scare Neo off from killing Yang, makes her first appearance. (and unfortunately does not remain secretive for very long. pls lady keep your mask on)
  • Weiss vs. the White Fang lieutenant (with Blake helping out a bit at the beginning).
  • Blake vs. Roman (and having to flee when Weiss is taken down by the WF lieutenant. She did give Roman a great kick to the face though.)
    - WBY's fights ending in a draw or their loss (because they need some challenges).
  • Oobleck oneshotting the Paladin using Zwei.
  • The ending with the Grimm invading the city and Ruby looking on in horror. (not that she had to worry because the whole thing is cleared up within like an hour)
    - Weiss giving Ruby a Crazy Hand approves! after they successfully smashed through a wall on a train without dying.
"Breach":
  • Team CFVY kicking Grimm ass and taking no prisoners. (set to "Caffeine.")
    - Coco in general with her handbag/nerf gatling gun.
  • Emerald, Mercury, and Cinder kicking Grimm ass for... some reason. (Cinder why in the world are you wearing the same outfit from the very first episode you must have other lovely ones. Ones Glynda wouldn't recognize upon reviewing footage of the Grimm invasion. At least we got to see Emerald finally fight though...)
  • The look on Glynda's face while cleaning up the mess the students left.

  • Adam appearing in the series proper. (even though he's being all grumpy)

...I have a lot of best moments. Innocent
The best of best I put in purple century gothic.

I've been seeing RWBY all over Tumblr and I've been kinda curious about it, but I'm one of those people who are wary of popular things mainly because sometimes the fandoms accompanying them can be really hateful and gross. (example: the Kuroshitsuji fandom. Just... eugh. Transphobia and pedophilia abound...)

Thing is, I need a new special interest 'cause I've pretty much run my Hellsing, PMMM, and Kuro obsessions into the ground and I really like Neo. She's super cute and mysterious. PURE LOVE
I also like Neptune 'cause HELLO BLUE HAIR and also a friend of mine cosplayed as him.

So, I'm gonna watch RWBY and join the madness. Googly Eyes


I can see it in your eyes
See right through your lies
Everything you pretend to be


And it comes as no surprise
Hater in disguise
That you are my ENEMY!

FUCK YOU LUSAMINE

I still firmly headcanon Summer Rose as a fencer

Scythes seem to be an unorthodox weapon, and Ruby wasn’t very good at them until Qrow took her under his wing

But Ruby has been demonstrated to be really talented so what I think happened was this:

Wanting to be like Summer, she picked up a weapon that didn’t suit her style and kept trying to fit someone else’s mold. Because she wasn’t progressing to the same level Summer was, she felt she was garbage.

Qrow saw this and was like “ruby no you’re not a fencer. you’re something else. maybe a brawler like yang idk. but you’re not a fencer. let’s try out some different things until we find what works for you okay?” and it turned out it was SCYTHES and he was like “oh shit gurl get ready we’re gonna learn u a thing toDAY”

Plus, I just like the idea of a fencer in white being important to Ruby, for completely unrelated and totally non freudian reasons.
#the freudian subtext IS HERE AND IT'S REAL
Also if Summer was a fencer that adds more Freudian subtext to Ruby’s attraction to Weiss and I am 100000% here for that
#The freudian subtext is here and it's real #white rose #rwby #Here 4 this
Spoiler:
a quick messy doodle about how I bet there’s gonna be a scene where Ruby sees Weiss as Summer for a second because of the whole, White on red thing.
#but come on the color schemes are very the same it's not just a coincidence

In way it's better that TPPS was accidentally deleted two years ago instead of loosing it now. (Not that it was good at the time, but you don't have to worry about loosing all of the memories you've made since then.)

Well we were going to lose it anyway because of the Great Social Group Purge as I called it, though I do concur for the most part.

That's not what I'm seeing on the internet so far :P

If anything it's usually showing Ruby as pretty "aggressive" for lack of a better term.

True.
BTW, do you know about how many groups got deleted?
