Shonen Jump also had the Yugi Oh 5ds and GX manga a few times and both of those had the anime get created first.

uh, I didn't know... though them at least originated from a spin-off of a series that started as a manga serialized on Jump, RWBY started as a web-animated series in America

Oh well, nevermind... the art style looks nice even if a flat (literally: the picture looks flat, like, with no depth. It's like a cathedral's window) and the image is nicely built, though very standard

Just saw on Twitter that Rooster Teeth is doing a collaboration with DC Comics for RWBY and gen:lock.

...well at least it's a comic book collaboration so it has a chance of being good. It depends on who they get involved.

I mean Cinder is still at a disadvantage with Ruby let alone Raven. Unless she mutates I don't see how she can pose a threat anymore.

Cinder didn't do too badly against Raven. She didn't factor Vernal into the equation and that allowed Raven to get in the strike she needed to finish the fight. It's pretty clear from the way Raven thanks Vernal afterwards that Raven genuinely needed some kind of distraction to get enough of an upper hand to defeat Cinder.

Cinder is only at a disadvantage against Ruby if Ruby activates her silver eyes. Right now, we've only seen the power trigger during moments where extreme distress has caused an uncontrolled burst of emotion.

Until Ruby learns to control her power and learn how to activate it at will, it's not going to be a very useful thing for her to rely on.

I don't see Ruby matching Cinder in battle, and there's no guarantee her silver eyes would activate in time to save her.

Seeing as Ozpin didn't see fit to educate Ruby on how to use them more effectively than panic buttons for specific situations, Cinder should be fine (unless the injuries sustained in her fight with Raven will severely gimp her).

Assuming Ozpin knows. Also assuming that Ozpin knew that Ruby activated her eyes at Beacon.

Now, I do assume that Qrow told him about that, so I would expect him to know.

More importantly, let's say Ozpin does know how to control the silver eyes. What would happen if it turns out the trigger for activation (and therefore the path to control) is unique for each individual silver-eyed warrior? What if it's linked to an emotion that specific to that warrior's life, personality and emotions?

The instructions would be different for every single silver-eyed warrior that had ever existed. It would require exploration of that individual to help them master the power.

It may even be that no-one can really help a silver-eyed warrior, they have to do it for themselves because it's about self-discovery and confronting things about the self that one might normally not wish to acknowledge the existence of.

If so, then there would be no point in exploring the silver-eyes in the single month they had to prepare for Haven. It would just be a distraction instead.

Also, it could be that Ozpin is waiting for a sign from Ruby that she's ready to discuss it. It wouldn't be out-of-character; we did see signs in the first two volumes that Ozpin had a preference for letting the kids be kids for as long as possible, and that he only started involving them when left with few other alternatives. It's easy to see why that might be a sore spot for him, too — he steals someone's childhood every time he takes a new host.

Considering Hazel was there, I'd say the Ozpin problem was already taken care of.

I think what is important is Cinder's reaction to the news: she freely admitted she had no idea if Ozpin's presence was a problem. However, it immediately focussed her attention back on the Relic. She pointed out they had the upper hand and they needed to act on it immediately.

So, yes, Hazel gunning for Ozpin was part of the advantage Cinder would have been referring to, but the point is that the mere knowledge of Ozpin's presence was enough to snap Cinder back to the job at hand.

I think Batman would be more suited to taking down the King of Edge Adam while Blake becomes Catwoman's sidekick.

Like adaptations or something else? These could turn out pretty good since DC has some talented writers.

Do they have any writers attached yet?

The mangas with the short stories focusing on each member of Team RWBY aren't bad so far. I just kind of wish these were allowed to dabble a bit in stuff post Vol. 3.

So it turns out that that person who is totally Cinder is, in fact, totally Cinder. Color me shocked; this might be the biggest media leak all year!.

In seriousness, I'm sure they're keeping her in shadow because there's some reveal to come about her physical appearance. She may be even more Grimm than when we last saw her.

But I reserve the right to die laughing if it turns out that they were just keeping her in shadow because they thought we actually bought Cinder's Disney Death.

Random bullshit theory, what if the Grimm in the corner is what Cinder eventually transforms into?

-deep breath-

The main melody is like a negative Red Like Roses. This is amazing.

Roman was such a good villain and one of the reasons I kept watching rwby during volumes one and two. I really hope they do his character justice by passing his story down to Neo. I feel like they had a deeper connection than they are letting on.

and so on

  • This Ruby/Weiss family dinner comic is hilarious and if you click on none of these links other than this one I will be satisfied
  • Yang holding a flower
  • X gon give it to ya, Ruby pointing threateningly at the viewer for some reason
  • Ruby being shipped with Jaune
  • This bothers me - Ruby was able to build Crescent Rose. That implies a level of mechanical/anatomical expertise that she never demonstrates anywhere else. Sure, people can specialize in one science but not the other, but this seems like being a whiz at calculus but not being competent at basic arithmetic. Somewhere there's got to be an overlap and you can't do one without the other.

I was just wondering... if you'd like to spend the rest of your life in my Dark Room.
