So volume 8 has already started with the first ep up for first members as always, I’m sort of surprised talk of rwby disappeared here. I remember that rwby comes out around the end of each year and was surprised to find out a trailer for vol 8 was released in October(linked below). Stuff is getting intense with Salem, and Penny I had forgotten what had happened to her in the last volume. Oh I’m excited to watch the first episode when it’s available to all.
Someone hold me I cannot do this anymore
have you watched the latest free episode?
Tbh, I was pretty disappointed with Volume 7, so it wasn’t until last week that I finally watched the first two chapters of Volume 8. So far, I’m encouraged: it seems like the writers may have recovered their footing after the narrative mess that was Volume 7.
Vol 8 is looking pretty good at the start so far, the conflicts rwby and others face is interesting but also ironwood and those around him and how they react/accept it is rather scary. I knew ironwood was questionable in various areas but wow the way he’s going through this volume so far, wonder if this is how he goes. And penny, oh no she breaks my heart I hope she pull through the darkness that weighs on her mind, and qrow too.
Yah, I agree with all of that! The first few chapters have been heartbreaking in that there is so much discord among the teams – Ruby/Yang, Nora/Ren are the most obvious, but also Blake/Yang: Blake’s loyalty to Ruby is absolute, and she never considered leaving her side, even when Yang went her own way. What does that mean for the two of them??
Omg yea I didn’t even think about how Blake going with Ruby would effect Blake and yangs relationship, thinking about that now there will most likely be some discussion/fight between those 2 later about that. Oh so much turmoil so far between many people, even those with Salem. Neo partnered with cinder and mercury/emerald seeing cinder again finally, that snap from cinder.
This is gonna be one hell of a volume.
I think Neo now sees that she’s nothing but a tool to Cinder; I wonder how that’s going to work out. Emerald still doesn’t seem to understand that Cinder cares for nothing except power, but Neo definitely noted that interaction between Cinder and Emerald.
Neo is smart and perceptive, wonder if she will continue on Salems side cuz of using/being used by cinder or leave to get revenge on her own
