RWBY: VOLUME 5 REVIEWED

“RWBY: Volume 5” only confirmed one thing for me. I just don’t get ongoing Anime series. This series is about a team of female warriors going from assignment to assignment, as they hunt relics on their way back to Haven Academy. There’s a guy that shows up and my brain just shut down. Also, it seems like there are too many vignettes this year. I like 22 Short Film about Springfield as much as the next yahoo, but not all the time.

For a volume/season/whatever that only lasted a hair over 4 hours, so much time is wasted to keep the gang off their mission. It’s cool to have supporting characters, but they shouldn’t steal focus on an Urkel level. While I power-dove through the first four volumes, I would really love to hear from RWBY fans that love the material to death. Is there something that I’m missing as an outsider? To me, so much of the story feels like a half-created RPG.

But, then again…I’m the kind of guy that can remember comic book trivia and have to put anime character names on index cards before reviews. So, there’s that.

The Plot Thus Far

In RWBY: Volume 5 Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they allshare one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it’s the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it’s clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who’s going to come out on top?
