I was behind with other shows so finally got to watch.I went in with no preconceived expectations so here it goes! It might be random thoughts but I always start that way what I think first.

First great trailers and I like the girls.

Second and nobody mention any references,homages or even slights to other animes, films!Some examples the obvious Aeon Flux meets Hit Girl (Kick Ass).

Speaking of Kick Ass obvious reference quote "Go Get Her"then the bazooka shows up right out of "Kick Ass"

Roman Torchwick reminds of Alex from Cloclwork Orange even wearing the same outerwear and hat.I'm not kidding!

But the one connection That is way obvious is the Hand and Arm Gear that Yang uses.Been there with Hibiki from Symphongear.That one is kinda of a ripoff and annoys me but in a gloating way I guess.

BTW the train trailer 4 err Symphongear S2 Ep 1 BTW S Gear was more bang for the buck!Also Burst Angel had a big train battle too!So nothing new there either.Man I am harsh tonite!

Third its in english! I'll wait for the Japanese Fan-sub XD

Fourth the story is not that new but the american cast lets me follow the story better but using more american saying or nuances.

Fifth is the animation cutting edge or just colorful CG.?The trailers were amazing and EP 1 was so good.

Final thoughts! I do like it .Ruby is cool.I like the english dialouge!Besides some nitpicking as to whether some things are homages or poor hiding of them is minor.The animation is great or poor not consistent.but that could be a person's preference.

Sis I'm actually losing hope.
The cheesy dialogue in RWBY is such a turnoff.

I'm interested, seeing as it doesn't have any budgets to fill or executives to cram crappy ideas down the animator's throats. It can go whatever direction it wants.
Plus, I find the fights to be totally badass, the voice acting is decent, and the characters are entertaining.

Probably when they need a British guy. I know they cast him for some roles in Red vs. Blue


I heard he was gonna be just a henchman, but decided to save him for a bigger role

It seems that Ruby and Weiss are going to have trouble working together, not particularly surprising.
Wiess is too focused on routine and doesn't adapt well when something unexpected happens, whereas Ruby has no experience with fighting on a team. It will be interesting seeing them learn to work together as the show goes on.

The giant snake was awesome.

Just saw the first episode earlier and, as of right now, the story seems promising. I'll definitely watch more. One thing that bothered me was the animations. Sometimes the mouth didn't sync up to the voices and well... the cookies...

But overall, the show is good. Especially the soundtrack. IT IS SOOOOO AMAZING. I tried learning "This Will Be the Day" on guitar

As of ep. 6, I'd say it's...pretty good. Much like Attack on Titan, it's annoying and cliche a lot of the time, but improves vastly when the characters have something to fight. Episodes 2-4 almost made me drop it, but it does get better.

Also, is there lighting in this CGI software? At all? Everything looks completely uniformly illuminated. There's no shading, or shadows, or anything of the kind. I think that's the main thing that makes it look weird and amateurish.

Watch it. It's pretty good.

Is it the greatest thing ever? Nope. The animation can be wonky and the voice acting isn't too great, but haters gonna hate.
