RWBY Volume 4 Chapter 5 Reaction
-Alright! Let’s do this! *cracks knuckles*
-*sees title* OHHH~! Menagerie huh? That means we’ll see more Blake! Yes!! Hopefully some scenes with the other girls too…
-WOW! HOLY CRAP! MENAGERIE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL! Look at all the little shops and all the Faunus.
-yeah… gotta agree with Sun but this place is really crowded…
-Oh my goodness!! So Blake is like Faunus royalty!?!? That’s really neat!
-HOLY SHIT! THEY REALLY ARE HER PARENTS!?!? YES PLEASE GOD! OUR MAIN GIRLS REALLY NEED LIVING AND LOVING PARENTS!! Although, I find it a little sad that out of all of team RWBY, Blake is the one with this kind of family, but she’s the only one that left them behind… I think. Hmmm… I’m hoping for more BACK story in that.
-AWWWW~! Momma Belladonna is so precious! Protect her at all costs!!!
-Geez! Papa Belladonna is a little intimidating, but at least he seems to care a lot for his family. And holy crap!! Is his voice actor the same as Father from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood!?!??? I THINK IT IS! WAY TO GO ROOSTER TEETH!!
-heh~! They’re having an awkward family dinner with Sun! And of course he’s saying all the wrong things and Blakey’s all embarrassed. Too cute.
-wait wait wait! What the fuck?! There’s white fang here!?!? WHAT IF THEY HURT BLAKEY?!? GO PAPA BELLADONNA! PROTECT YOUR DAUGHTER!
-oh wait… they don’t know about what the white fang has done?!? But how? Wasn’t it all in the news on the Vytal festival?!? Didn’t anyone see white fang members when it was showing live?
-sooo… Adam’s violent part of the WF is seen as “strays” (really? Being label as this by your own people) from the other branches (I guess) of the organization. And hold on! The leader isn’t Sienna whatever her name and now the WF are mostly following Adam? Well that’s just great! Blake basically has a target on her back because of him and now he has more forces to find her.
-I don’t trust these two WF members, no matter how civil they may seem.
-I trust the Belladonna parents though, I hope they protect Blake.
-I AM SO HAPPY AND PROUD THAT BLAKE IS STILL FIGHTING!! YOU GO MY WONDERFUL BAD ASS CHILD!
-Hahahaha! So Papa Belladonna doesn’t like Sun, but Momma Belladonna does. And Blake doesn’t really care. Damn, Sun.
-YEP! I knew it!! These WF members were baddies!! Now they’re gonna inform Adam where Blake is! SHIT! Noooooo!
-GREAT! Now Tyrian is right in Ruby’s trail… god! Please protect Blake and Ruby. Idk how strong Tyrian is, but if he can sit at Salem’s council… he can probably leave some serious damage… *sobs*
-overall, this was a super unnecessarily short and boring episode if I’m being honest. I am glad though that we learned more about Blake’s family life and such and things got set-up, BUT NOTHING REALLY HAPPENED.
Like there was no talking about why Blake left home and how her parents feel besides them being glad she’s back.
We didn’t learn more about why Blake’s parents are so well off in Menagerie. EDIT: never mind, apparently Ghira used to be the leader but stepped down and moved to Menagerie.
THERE WAS NO FEATURE OF ANY OF THE OTHER GIRLS AND I AM SAD (why no Weiss??? I haven’t seen her in weeks! I am deprived).
We didn’t even learn more about Sienna Khan or whoever this Iliya person is that the WF members mentioned that would be pleased about Blake’s return.
We didn’t even learn anymore about the white fang itself cuz it *seems* like there’s other parts/branches to it but they didn’t elaborate.
And back to the World of Remnant on Faunus, there was a mention of the Faunus organizing something big in Menagerie, BUT THERE WAS NO HINT OR ANY MENTION OF IT, why???? Or maybe it was just the white fang stuff but I probably didn’t catch it.
And there was no action either which is kinda saddening for the people who love this show for the fights.
My point is, this episode’s actual content could have been MUCH MUCH LONGER and more interesting too, but it didn’t happen and I’m pretty disappointed.
Sorry if this became more of a rant.
