I've seen some really stupid takes on twitter/youtube about the first episode of V7

People acting like Penny coming back somehow undoes Volume 3, or are acting that because Penny came back Pyrrha and other dead characters can come back. And like I'm just sitting here going "she's a robot" of course she was coming back. Her whole plotline about being created for some great purpose in V2 was never addressed again. So people want that plotline to be completely dropped? I dunno, this to me is like at the end of infinity war people actually thought all the dusted characters were dead, and then complain at the end of endgame that they came back. There is also stupid stuff like people saying Yang forgot her character development because she kicked that drone that was taking pictures of her and people saying Weiss should be punished for throwing that racist in the trash because she assaulted him... and those same people are calling Qrow dumb for not turning into a bird after he got bolla'd. So they are mad "Weiss commited a felony" but want Qrow to commit a felony by "resisting arrest?"
Not even surprised tbh.

Regarding favorite weapons, my list:

Gianduja
Anesidora
Ember Celica
Myrtenaster
Crescent Rose

So what are everyone's favourite weapons?

Mine are.

1. Wilt and Blush
2. Myrtenaster
3. Ruyi Bang and Jingu Bang
4. Cinder's Bow and Arrow
5. Cerberus Whip
6. Ember Celica
7. Talaria
8. Winter's Weapon

I'm a big fan of triple-changer (and even Quad-changer) weapons like Gambol Shroud, Miló and Akoúo, and Harbinger.

Life and Death, Harbinger, and Gambol Shroud (with good choreography) are probably my favorite weapons in the show. Favorite gimmick weapon has to be Gianduja

I can see Cinder and Neo not showing up until the very end or next volume, they have a lot on their plate for the current volume going by the opening.

Does anyone wonder if Blake used dust clones against Adam that would've given her the edge against him? I mean trapping his sword in a ice or rock clone would give her time to separate him from it and using fire clones as dummy bombs would be a good way to lure him in and dish out damage as well.

wow I can't believe all it takes for me to cry nowadays is sisters hugging.

Also qrow/ironwood huh...

Was hoping they'd get new outfits this ep but I guess that's next week. Dorms are gonna be fun though lol. The Ace Ops are neat too, I'm looking forward to seeing them more.

What Ironwood thinks is going to happen: "We're going to tell the world of Salem!"
What's probably actually going to happen: "Hello world! I am Salem! MY GRIMM ARE COMING FOR YOU.

Pretty good episode overall, but baaaahhhhh I want my new outfits already! The scene between Weiss and Winter was so sweet, but even sweeter was the moment between Ironwood and Qrow, certainly did not see that coming. And I need to know the name of the big muscular girl that's part of the Spec Ops, like... ASAP. *swoooooon*

Since Ep 1 is out I want to talk about the Ace Ops

Trying to figure out what they are based on. So far it’s

Clover- The Fisherman and the Little Fish

Harriet- Hare from Tortiose and the hare

Elm (Hammer Girl) - The honest woodcutter?

Marrow - Boy who Cried Wolf

Vine (the monk looking one) is the only one I have no idea about.

IMO one of my favourite parts of RWBY is figuring out who is who.

RWBY has its own version of Scorpia.

lots of hints inside the new opening. Ironwood is probably going to get usurped by Weiss' dad at some point in this volume.

Has anyone here watched Doctor Sleep yet? Interestingly enough, I noticed some minor RWBY references in the film, to the point where it becomes part of the character/plot in a way.

Spoilers for the movie:

Abra's room is adorned with RWBY posters, and on her nightstand features an Emerald Sustrai figurine. The camera pans over to and lingers on this figure in one scene. Later, Abra demonstrates her power to create illusions with her shining ability, and during one of these sequences, she disguises herself with a bob cut and colored hair styled similarly to Emerald to deceive the main villain.
