RWBY Volume 5
RWBY Volume 5
#1
Volume 5 premieres in 11 days, so I figured I'd open up the inevitable thread for it -- and I'd do it with this video, a link to which Rooster Teeth sent me last night:

called a hundred names and will be called a thousand more before the sun grows dim and cold....

I should have posted this a couple days ago, but the RWBY Panel from New York Comic-Con (which was this past weekend) went up on YouTube almost immediately after it was held last Friday:



One thing that comes up in this is mention of a Yang Character Short for Volume 5, which was supposed to be available "in a couple days".  But there's no sign of it.

Oh, and Peg and I will be going to the Fathom event premiere for Volume 5 tonight. I'll try to post a spoiler-free comment when we get back.

I know I've seen a Blake short, and I think there was a Weiss one at some point...

Yeah, I've seen both, and they were joking around about ignoring Yang when it came to character shorts at the panel.

ETA: Didn't someone post the Blake and Weiss shorts in the Vol 4 thread?

I believe I did post them there, but since there's now a Volume 5 thread...

And we're back.  The presentation was interesting -- they started with the last three episodes of last season, with short bits of commentary from Kerry, Miles and Grey in between, followed by the Weiss and Blake trailers, then right into V5E1.  As I promised, no spoilers, but interestingly, V5E1 sort of interleaves with V4E12 -- there is a bit of an overlap between the two, and a shared scene.  A lot of the trailer is in episode 1, but as is to be expected, not all the dialogue you hear in it goes with the scenes it's heard over.  Beyond that, I'll just quote someone in the episode and say, "Wait for it..."

Afterward, group pictures were taken which are going to be poisted.... um, somewhere, either the RWBY or Rooster Teeth Facebook page, and maybe at Rooster Teeth?  I paid attention and then promptly forgot exactly what the guy said.  If you lurk at any and all of them, or other candidate fora, look for a pic or pics from the Regal Cinemas in North Brunswick, NJ.

Oh, and there were some cosplayers at the showing, too.  They'll be in the very front of the pic:

(Oh, in case you can't make it out, Blake there is wearing the "Backup Bestie" T-shirt from RWBY Chibi, and Ruby is carrying a tiny Corgi plushie.)

Heh.  While doing some housekeeping on board data, I stumbled across our very first RWBY thread.  It's interesting to see how much of our speculation was right -- and how much was wrong.

Huh. It looks like Rooster Teeth has finally moved away from Flash-based videos, and I can now actually watch stuff on their site. That means I will actually have consider an RT First subscription. Hmmm...

Indeed it was.

But is it just me, or has Weiss been holding her left elbow quite a bit in the last few episodes?
