(SPOILER ALERT: This is a full breakdown review for “Pomp and Circumstance”) Welcome back, readers, for “Pomp and Circumstance,” the fourth chapter of the Rooster Teeth anime-style fantasy web series, RWBY: Volume 7, released on Rooster Teeth FIRST on November 23. This chapter doesn’t do much to move the plot forward, and aside from some … Continue reading My 2 Cents on RWBY: Volume 7 – “Pomp and Circumstance”
In between bits of slow pacing and questionable plot devices, RWBY: Volume 6 lights up with the passionate heart of its characters as they pursue an extreme example of the rocky cross-country trip.
While the finale spreads itself thin by trying to wrap up so many story arcs, it manages to hit most of the right notes to end another enthralling volume in the RWBY saga.
In spite of a contrived conclusion to why one of the heroes went missing in the previous episode, "Lost" is a superb episode that explores the nuances and drives of our villains and honors the dear memory of a great Huntress.
Encountering a barrier on the trip to Atlas, learning more about the power of silver eyes, coming across fractures that leave our heroes on an ominous cliffhanger — all in all, another well-written episode for RWBY: Volume 6.
From a peek at a pair of conniving villains and the backstory of a legendary Huntress to the inspiring progress of Team RWBY and company's journey, "The Grimm Reaper" is yet another laudable chapter that Rooster Teeth has brought to RWBY: Volume 6.
Enthralling action, heartfelt nuggets of nuanced characterization, and a newfound Grimm species qualify "Alone in the Woods" as one of my favorite RWBY: Volume 6 episodes thus far.
Overall this is a step up from the easygoing tempo of "So That's How It Is," although it still doesn't achieve the trademark pace of action that I have come to expect from Rooster Teeth's fantasy anime web series.
Rather than progressing RWBY: Volume 6 through another significant point in its journey, "So That's How It Is" feels more like three mild scenes straggling along the road to the next episode.
I firmly believe that a story can either shine or collapse on the integrity and empathic quality of the antagonist's backstory. "The Lost Fable" succeeds in this field by presenting a rounded perspective on Salem's downward spiral from a freedom-loving young woman to an immortal entity with a pure desire for destruction.
