It's the right call.

As for what this means for the voice of Qrow, we'll probably have to wait for RTX for those answers, unless they have Qrow sketches planned for Chibi that haven't already been recorded.

There's also no way to just dump Qrow because he's needed for Atlas. Writing him out would also be really awkward considering where the finale left off.

Glad RT have taken their stance and acted on it.

Steve Blum definitely sounds (no pun intended) right to me.

But yeah, if any domino was going to be the first to fall for Vic, it would have been Rooster Teeth. Vic's a D-Lister (F-Lister now?) who's acting career was going nowhere fast (Especially in relation to his contemporaries like Troy Baker), while Rooster Teeth is rubbing elbows with Hollywood and SAG-AFTRA now - Both of which have established precedents on not tolerating behavior like Vic's.

The big question will be if Funimation and other Anime-dubbing companies cut him or not. Funi's run by a Fundie and has consistently "No Comment"ed and pretended nothing happened every time a credible allegation against Vic came out in the past decade.

Vic will continue to be cast as Broly and I can see that becoming his only role.

Wait what happened to Glynda?
There are rumors that some bad blood developed between Kathleen Zuelch (Glynda Goodwitch, Tex from RvB) and management at Rooster Teeth over personality conflicts with other prominent on-camera women at the company.

Most of it's all heresay and neither party has made comments about it other than that they've gone their separate ways.

I really wish they did the character justice. The writers could have made him a tragic character ala Killmonger. Instead, everyone ended up hating the bastard.

I think it comes down to what story they were telling.

T'Challa's story in Black Panther was searching for the answer to the question "what kind of king will you be?" To that end, a character like Killmonger was important to the story because he forced T'Challa to question the wisdom of the old kings, and take a more global view.

Adam is not a primary character. His role is to push the arcs of Blake and Yang. If Blake's arc was to examine her thoughts on extreme measures in favor of social justice, a version of Adam like Killmonger would work. But that's not her arc. She figured that all out before we met her. Blake's arc is about regaining her sense of self-worth and moving on from her past after the things she did with the White Fang.

Yang's arc is about discovering true courage. She started the series with bravado, but that was about believing that she could beat anyone. She needed to learn to stand up to opponents she knew could destroy her.

These arcs didn't really call for a morally complex, intellectually challenging villain. What they call for is an unrelenting monster.

Yep. Adam was never meant to be a morally complex villain or anti-hero. He was always the abuser that would haunt Blake and Yang, I think.

Like a lot of plot points going from early volumes to post-V3, Adam felt like one of those things that someone thought would be cool but turned out to be fucking terrible post-implementation. I can't express how fucking relieved I am we're never going to have to hear Adam's whiny edgelord bullshit ever again.

I often think that a soft-reboot would be very healthy for RWBY going forward. Do a timeskip, shed the early volume baggage, start fresh. Something I actually hope they do after the inevitable "Battle for Atlas" next volume.

I am glad Adam's gone at this point, I'm just not sure what the hell the plan for him more recently had been. After making him such a threat in his appearances beforehand, the end of Volume 5 just made him look like a total dweeb. Then they immediately build up back up and imply he's brutally reasserting his control of the White Fang... just for him to run off on his own after Blake.

that's not how I interpreted that scene

he tried to reassert control, the White Fang members told him to fuck off and mentioned Blake, so he had a temper tantrum and killed them

then, because he's a piece of shit, he blamed the whole thing on Blake and went after her

Hm, good point, maybe they were going for that. Especially since Adam went full gator on Blake after.

Yeah that's how I took you hear Adam trying to take control in his video before the Fang told him no then you hear screams

The Albain twins warned Adam about his attempt to murder Blake's parents and look what happened. The guy was an incompetent leader and didn't care about his own people.

Well, Vic's out and that sucks. Not in regards to Vic, screw him and good on this shit finally having consequences. Sucks for Qrow, my favorite character. Vic did a great job voicing him. What a waste of talent on a creep. I feel pretty secure that Qrow is safe as a character. He's too major in the story to vanish, so he'll most likely be recast. Who are likely candidates to pick up what Vic dropped?

I've seen some people suggest Quinton Flynn (Raiden from MGS, Axel KH3)

He has a similar voice to Qrow

This season was the Final Fantasy XV to last season's Final Fantasy XIII. Could have been better. Could have been worse. At least on the path to a return to form. The problem is that the plot was stalled out. There was some backstory given but we haven't really advanced forward at all from the beginning of the season.

I'm pretty certain when both series are finished gen:Lock is gonna be the better show overall.

I mean this has clearly been a transition volume and I don’t think they'd stayed it’d be anything otherwise.

I mean I get people have different opinions but this has frankly been the best Volume yet to me.

6>3>4>2>5=1

I generally agree, although my volume ranking would be:

6>3>2=5>4>1

I still think it was a mistake to barely delve into Yang in V4. 5 and 6 fixed that up a bit, but the initial attempts to explore her post-Fall of Beacon were woefully minimal despite her being the most obvious candidate for in-depth exploration.

They have this major event 2 seasons ago and everything changes then the plot stalls out for 2 seasons. That's uneven pacing no matter how you look at it. Plots should escalate gradually until they reach the climax.

Pattern emerging: Red haired characters get killed at the end of volumes divisible by 3


Volume 3: Penny, Torchwick, Pyhrra

Volume 6: Adam

so either Nora's number is up in volume 9, or she won Ginger Highlander.

Bumblebee is confirmed. I don't care what Kerry says. I don't even particularly care for the ship. But at this point, after all the teasing, if it ISN'T canon the Bees are gonna burn the fucking internet down.

Just finished watching the finale of V6 after not getting around to it for a bit.
I enjoyed the Adam conclusion greatly and the rest was good too with the Godzilla grimm, seeing Ruby figure out the silver eye thing and all those Pyrrha callbacks was satisfying. It's nice to see Blake and Yang supporting each other (I am a bumblebee fan and I hope it happens, they definitely weren't subtle with that lol).

The one thing I really wanted was some sort of Oz assist and I guess I did get that a bit thankfully, though it still really bothers me how he and his story have been handled this season as well as some other topics regarding Qrow and such.

My Volume ranking: 3 > 2 > 6 > 1 > 4 > 5
Yeah, this isn't as good/exciting as V3 was and I enjoy the fights of V2 too much, but V6 being better than V4/V5 is definitely on the right track finally.

I look forward to seeing them get even better at fight choreography and animation, it still doesn't have the same flow to me as V1/V2/V3 but the fights this time were definitely an improvement over V4 and V5! Onward to Atlas~

I had a very long post written up weeks ago in regards to Bumblebee being canon but I think I’m gonna hold off until next volume when the ship goes into max speed. All I’ll say right now is that I’m full of emotions, and words simply can’t express how happy I am that it finally happened. Having to deal with doubters and haters for years was exhausting beyond belief. To finally have it stated, clear as day, that they are a couple... I just want to cry. lol

Take me to the hive fam, we made it!

From the perspective of a woman who loves women, and in my words

"this shit is so validating".

I still can't believe it's happening but every time it happens (before this it was Korra/Asami from Legend of Korra and last year Bubblegum/Marceline from Adventure Time), it becomes less unbelievable and also helps me hate myself less.

Sorry to get a little deep, and sorry to be cliché but representation really does matter.

I'm not part of the beehive but great news for you guys.

My season rankings:
3>6>2>4>1>5

Tough decision to make between 3 and 6 for the best season. After the shitshow of 5 I'm glad that RWBY is making a great effort to return to form again. Hoping for Best Girl Weiss to get more development in Atlas, this next volume is guaranteed to be Weiss and Bees centric pretty much.

Real nice cover of Red Like Roses.

On another note since Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is getting a season 2 I’m hoping we’ll see at least one more RWBY character.

RWBY (Red/White/Black/Yellow/pronounced "Ruby") is an animated web series produced by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth Productions.

Long before the beginning of the series, the world of Remnant used to be covered in darkness. Mankind was born into a hostile world dominated by monsters called the "Grimm". Humanity's future was at first bleak, but due to the discovery of "Dust" they were able to drive back the Grimm and create an expanding civilization. At the time of the series' start, the world is in a state of peace. In order to safeguard against the Grimm should they one day return, various academies were created to train combat specialists called Huntresses/Huntsman.

The main characters attend one of these academies called Beacon, situated in the Kingdom of Vale.

Main Characters:



Ruby Rose - Ruby is one of the four main protagonists of the show and is introduced in the first episode. She wields a High-Calibur Sniper-Scythe (HCSS) called Crescent Rose. She leaves Signal Academy to attend Beacon with her older sister Yang after being extended an invitation.



Weiss Schnee - Weiss is the second character introduced and wields the Multi-Action Dust Rapier (MADR) called Myrtenaster. She attends Beacon at the same time as Ruby and is also the heiress to the Schnee Dust Company.



Blake Belladona - Blake is the third protagonist introduced and wields the Variant Ballistic Chain Scythe (VBCS) Gambol Shroud. Blake attends Beacon, however most of her past is unknown and she keeps her distance from others.



Yang Xiao Long - Yang is the last of the main protagonists to be introduced and makes use of the Ranged Shot Gauntlets, Ember Celica. She is depended upon by her younger sister Ruby and pushes her to be more outgoing at Beacon.

Where can I watch it:
RWBY is free to watch and can be viewed at the following websites (latest episode on Crunchyroll requires a Premium subscription).
