RWBY
« on: June 01, 2013, 09:31:52 PM »
I've been looking forward to this for nearly a year now. Rooster Teeth (the Red vs. Blue guys) teased this after the credits of their Season 10 finale, releasing four trailers every couple of months. The final trailer was released today.

Red
White
Black
Yellow

The series will premiere at Rooster Teeth Expo next month, then released on the Internet sometime thereafter.

This looks pretty cool, though I can't say I like the characters' faces much. But Red vs. Blue is hilarious, so I'll probably watch this too.

The voices okay-ish to godawful, but everything else looks good. It looks a lot more campy and less serious than what the first two trailers suggested.

It looks...okay. It kind of looks generic, but I'll just have to see how it turns out.

And I already hate Yellow.

I've been watching these since first learning about Red last year. All four of these teasers have been kickass. That said, I agree with ShadowGentleman about the generic feel to them. Hopefully we'll see something with some depth in the final product.

And I already hate Yellow.
She's okay in my book. Quite the lil firecracker.

Let me rephrase that. I find her kind of annoying, but I'll wait and see how this works out.

But I always hate the ball grabbing thing.

^lmao! As do I.

If anything, I was a bit disturbed by how long she... *ahem!*.. had him in the palm of her hand.

It's good how the characters are getting fleshed-out. Ruby seems to have a fun personality.

Watched the first episode... well, at least it's ambitious.

Yeah. Their other work is far superior. Kudos to them for trying something new, but I think I'll stick with the funny Halo videos.

I'll give them some props for being ambitious, but as it stands so far, they flat-out suck at writing serious stories and characters. The voice-acting in this series also isn't up to the task of conveying any of these characters seriously. They should probably just stick to comedy, which is clearly where their strengths lie.
