    for a moment at 2:40 I thought Weiss was going to go all Yang on that Grimm. But then she didn't. I would've paid to see that. :)

    For those criticizing the fight scene, yes we get it... it isn't like V1-3 but the animation sure improved on the movement, you can tell the speed has increased closer to earlier volumes, plus the animation looks better. Rooster teeth did lose pieces of animation that we loved but can't hold on. We all know that piece in rwby is gone, Monty Oum we all miss you and if I was the animators I would do what I can for you. But now I can only watch and hope...

    Anyone else notice how much less broken the moon is compared to season 4? In season 4 the break is a full crescent and there are holes made even further across the moon. Holy utter hell. Go back to season 1 chapter 1 1:22 to 1:25. They actually show an overlap of how the moon is actively deteriorating. Could this tie into the storyline?????!?!?!?!?! I have never noticed this before. Am I late to the theories and did someone notice that already?

      So, Remnant's moon has asynchronous rotation. Our moon is tidally locked, meaning we always see the exact same side of the moon, as it's orbit matches it's rotatioin. Remnant's moon doesn't orbit/rotate in the same way, so at certain times, you will see the moon from different angles, which is why it sometimes appears more or less broken.

      This short also takes place before Weiss ever makes it to Beacon in the first place.  She has no scar in this short, we have no clue how much before V1 this takes place (not by much im guessing).

      That actually isn't true. She has the scar before that, you can see it if you look closely enough. It's under the blood dripping on her face after the armor punches her.

    Absolutely stunning, graceful visuals with some beautiful exposition, but then again I wouldn't expect any less, especially from a Weiss short. I feel like Volume 5 is gonna be awesome if this is anything to go by.


    Also, sidenote: super hype for what I'm gonna call Mirror Mirror Part 3 (just because I'm not sure of what else the title could be). Can't wait to hear the whole thing!

    2:21, is that a dust effect, or did winter once fight a grimm that could do that? it's probably dust, but that would be a cool grimm.

      The obvious reason ?

  • lightfire228

    2 months ago

    Weiss was missing her scar on her right eye during the whole thing, but it was visible during the last shot.  So, that exchange happened in the past (before Weiss got the scar)?   Which is interesting because Winter's last line is "... if you ever want to leave."  So either she means "if you want to survive as a huntress" or, like what happened at the end of season 4, "if you want to leave the family"

    Also, I loved the Mirror Mirror motif in the end

      This was a flashback to before the White Trailer. Winter was referring to leaving Atlas for Beacon.

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

      1 month ago

      I think it all ties in to Winters statement about Weiss breaking away from her safety chain and no longer relying on her dad or family name to protect her.  She's got to learn to stand and fight back on her own without alway s relying on somebody elses protection

    • dwichman98 donte

      1 month ago

      the scar came from her fight in her volume one "white" trailer with the enemy who was like a large knight. 


      she probably means leave in the same way or not disimilar from how winter did. As in leave their fathers will and strike their own path

    Why do the trailers look better than the actual show? These visuals are jaw dropping, and clearly not the same as what we got for volume 4.

    Volume 4 is already the prettiest volume of RWBY so far, if volume 5 looked like this, I wouldn't be able to contain myself.

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

      2 months ago

      a trailer always tends to the better than the actual show simply because of the time they can take to make it as well the method or resources available at the time. This coming out after season 4 you can bet there quality and methods have gotten better and since these trailer are more like a music video they can take more time than usual on it rather than pumping out weekly episodes.

      I feel like vol 4 was better looking the the Ruby Character short we got. and You are comparing this to Vol 4 but this is not Vol 4 this would be vol 5.

    • dwichman98 donte

      every season/volume should be expected to be better then the last visually due to constant improvement in the animation style.

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

      From what I read, after Monty died they began the process of switching over to a different animation program, which probably has a huge part to do with the quality. Not that Monty is bad, but you can see a slow increase in quality between seasons 1-3, and then it suddenly changes in both quality AND style once Monty is no longer affiliated with the show. I believe it was the start of Season 4 where they started using the other program, so it would make sense not only for the quality change, but also the style change as well.

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

    Is it just me or is the fight choreography of RWBY declining? I can't tell if it's story related or Monty related. Like, cool effects and lighting, but isn't it kind of all for nothing if the action suffers? It's easier to look at, but if the action slows, the show slows. Case in point, the entirety of volume 4. I mean, comparing this to the wow factor of Ruby's debut for season 1 and Blake's fast paced fighting in her opening trailer, this seems like a step backwards almost. Saw comments suggesting this is scene occurred earlier chronologically so I guess it makes sense. 

    But that's the thing ALSO. RvB has had some of the WORST fights in a long time. Which is not to say it was... bad... but compared to the hay-day of project freelancer with people flying every which way and the sheer level of overkill, the tex/carolina fight was so much "meh" for such an important scene. I mean, the joking of pacing with the change of music was a cute joke, but the fight was far from that of the two peerless warriors we had seen in prior seasons. Maybe I'm just a nostalgia junkie, but it just feels like something is missing and I'm saying it's speed and pacing.

    • poroner

      2 months ago

      I've been saying this ever since season 3.

      I fell in love with rwby and RvB for that reason, it's really hard to find good action nowadays while you can look pretty much anywhere for pretty looking animation. On top of that there's no point to it being 3D if it's just going to play out like any other 2D animation out there. Season 3 still had it's problems in that regard but near the end god it was perfection. You're pretty much spot on about the speed and the pacing, the action before NEVER SLOWED DOWN. Now they just stop every 3-5 seconds with no good reason and no sense of timing whatsoever (food fight episode did this well with ruby holding weiss in her hands, comedic timing) and they have a lot of zoomed in shots which don't look good at all. RvB can kind of get away with it because at its core, it is a comedy show. 


      On another note, I wanna express something else that bothers me, they've gotten so much better with worldbuilding but the story (while it was never that great) slowed down so much. The entirety of season 4 was pure filler and there's no subtlety to the new characters and their design just looks like "generic anime stereotype #2456"


    • ironlotus1997

      I respectfully disagree a lot happened in Volume 4 just because Monty passed away dose not mean we will not get a good or awesome action scenes there are plenty of talent in the world working for Screw Attack and Rooster Teeth in Volume 4 Qrow almost died of poison I saw in the comment sections of Volume 4 where people were going PLEASE DON"T DIE QROW PLEASE ROOSTER TEETH DON"T KILL HIM PLEASE over and over Blake met her family AND REMOVED HER BOW BY THE WAY!! and I thought that the fight between Qrow and Tyrian was an awesome fight scene we no where Adam is heading and we saw Menagerie finally Volume 4 was supposed to be a take a break Volume anyway with all the chaos that happened in Volume 3 how people keep missing all this I have no idea I don't know what anime you guys have been watching but it's not RWBY that's for sure.  

       

    • Leafia

      I think the choreography has never looked better. The characters are able to interact with the ground now, and their strikes have more weight behind the animation. Fights are fun, fast paced, easy to follow, and have the feeling of really being connected to the environment. I think people need to realize that, even though Monty was an amazing animator, he's not the only one RT has. The animations improved every volume, and we can't look at the fact that Monty's gone as a permanent hindrance to RWBY's animation department.

      I wish he was still here, but I'm impressed with how well they've grown after his passing.

    • BlackboardMoniter

      2 months ago

      I find that the strikes have considerably less weight. The first volumes, you could clearly see the momentum and weight of the objects. Ruby would use the weight of her scythe to move her own body. Yang would use the momentum of one kcik to lead her into the next kick. THAT is weight. Now she swings it around like paper... and maybe she got stronger, but it still seems unrealistic... or at the very least, boring. And frankly... Weiss would actually move her arms and legs fliudly like a person, and not like she is a slightly robotic ballerina (what was that last pose in the trailer as she decapitates the monster after it kindly waited for her to finish with the previous one?). My fave fight in volume 4 was yang practicing with her dad. I want that smooth choreographed fighting of the first few seasons again. And while yes, the animation IS better, like poroner said, good animation is easy to find. If the fights got better again, but every once in a while characters feet still seemed to be off the ground, then I would be pleased.

  • ironlotus1997

     I just hope characters like Winter get to interact with Weiss a lot and I hope she gets to know and like the other members of team RWBY as well and maybe some other characters come back to be part of the main story and not just die too fast I want see more and certain characters interact with each other other wise it seems like a waste opportunity either way I am excited about Volume 5.

      Yeah there's a lot of questions that have not been answered. Like will the RWBY team meet up towards the end of the series or beginning? I think towards the beginning since I doubt the others will be going to Mistral by foot once they reach the continant (Yang certainly isn't). Will Ruby be attending the huntsman academy over there to continue training or will Qrow take her under his wing (no pun intended). I also have a feeling that Yang is going to meet up with Raven along the way by means of having a run-in with the raiders on the way to Mistral. Raven may even help Yang get there faster. Then there's a lot to be seen with Oscar.

    It's interesting what you can tell about the little details.  First off, it's fairly easy to determine that this takes place before the events in the White Trailer, due to the absence of Weiss' scar.  However, of equal interest is the fact that her bun and tail are tied directly behind her head, rather than being offset to the right.  What that means exactly, I'm not sure, maybe something suggesting a certain lack of resolve.  However, of interest is the moment at 1:33, where she takes a second to gaze admiringly at Myrtenaster.  This suggests that this takes place not all that long after she got it and is still getting used to its features and the excitement of having her own weapon.  It's impressive at how many little details the staff can slip into their work nowadays.

    Since they said that there was going to be three character shorts coming, this is what i believe is going to happen. I believed that they were planning to release a character short for each of the girls.

    Ruby had hers already for last year's volume 4 and now they've released one of Weiss. And if my suspicions are right, that means that the next two character shorts are going to be of Blake and Yang.
