So what do people think are the best/coolest semblances so far? For me I'd say Glyphs/Summonings, Moonslice, Illusions(Neo), Cinder's(I forgot the name), and Magnetism.
Weiss' summoning, Yang's and Nora's (love a tank), and Velvet's for overall and Adam's only because I'm a sucker for cool looking shit.

Yatsuhashi's made me super sad : (

Is it wrong that of all the RWBY characters I'd want to have have Adam's weapons, design(not his crappy vol 5 one), and semblance the most?

Calling it now. This volume will see the return of Penny.
Well obviously at this point she'll be addressed in some shape or form according to the first 12 minutes of VOL 7.

Anyone read the new comic issue? I have mixed feelings honestly as trying to show
Adam is really some tragic figure who once cries over losing comrades is the "real him" is a kinda too much and too late for this honestly.

Oh jeez.
I can't comment until I get to actually read it but yeah I have a hard time taking attempts to make him sympathetic seriously.

How credible is that idea that Adam is a pedo as that seems to be going around with fans? I dunno as I don't think RT would promote a character like that or depict a relationship like that as shown in the comic

If fans are getting that impression I don't think it's anything RT actually intended. I feel like that would have gotten some focus along side his other shitty behavior.

Why are they wasting their time trying to build sympathy for Adam? Dude was an abusive, psychotic piece of trash that got his just deserts. Fuck him.

I didn't read it that way at all. I just thought it was giving him a reason why Blake would give a shit about him in the first place.

Yeah, it's too late to give him any depth at all now when his mustache is twirled so hard it falls off his face. I don't think its sympathy, just trying to show his change or something.
Honestly, my only issue with him is his connection to the Faunus subplot

There are other characters who can continue the Faunus storyline, Ilia is a good example.

Doubt they would revisit it as Miles and Kerry said it's taking a backseat
I use Adam because with his brand and backstory, it's the first time we've seen how bad it can get for Faunus in Atlas and he's suffered the most due to racism out of any Faunus we've seen and a lot of the White Fang have legit reasons to act like they do. What happened with Ilia's parent was an accident and she seems more misguided, while with Adam, it should be that he's driven by the racist abuse he's suffered. But it's jarring that none of this really focused on as Adams descent into madness doesn't really address the racism aspect of it and the fact that he's a Faunus is irrelevant the fact that he was driving force behind the Faunus subplot and is a just an abuser undermines it. Someone once made the analogy that there is a reason why Magneto doesn't have Sabretooth's personality.

They didn't retroactively try to make him sympathetic, they simply showed more of him which lines up right with what Blake always said he was.

Finished up Volume 6 a few hours ago with the gf. I am 100% behind Blake and Yang as a couple, especially since their fight with Adam was the emotional climax of the volume. 😭

I totally shipped Ruby with Penny until her death. T_T I'd love to see Penny revived and have them pick up where they left off.

A Bumblebee and Nuts n’ Dolts fan? I knew you were good people!

The OP is ridiculously anime lmao (I love it!). Fight budget is on point, granted it's the opening episode but yeah, really fun episode.

Penny coming back is the least surprising thing but I didn't expect it to happen in episode 1. Really heartwarming stuff.

Qrow's VA is good, naturally it's not the same but it'll be fine.

Ironwood vs Ozpin is gonna be a fun fight if they actually do it, OPs have lied before though.

The fabled "Ace Ops" got a laugh out of me, their wordplay is on point

Penny!!!! She's so cute 😭 I'm so happy she's back. Her dad is cool too.

Mantle/Atlas is giving me uneasy vibes so far but I guess that's the point. Kinda nervous that Ironwood or Winter are gonna be working for Salem or something.

Also laughing at Weiss literally dunking a racist in the trash. Love that character development.
