The show is called RWBY, not RUBY!
Like it or not, this show is not all about Ruby Rose! You need to understand that this show has revolved around EIGHT characters since VOLUME ONE, CHAPTER FOUR!
Seriously, were you all screaming your head off when Pyrrha was getting character development in Volume 3? Were you furious about how she was taking screentime away from Ruby?
If the answer is yes, then go back to my first point. If the answer is no, then SHUT UP ALREADY!
I think everyone who is bashing the writers about Jaune is doing so based on one of two things, if not both.
1) Monty Oum doesn’t have a say in the show anymore, and you will use anything as an excuse to say “This isn’t what Monty wanted” (As if you, a simple viewer of the show with no ties to working with Monty Oum, would ever know that).
2. You hate that the stupid, bumbling, idiot who couldn’t get the girl, didn’t know how to fight, and was literally stuck in a tree is actually working hard and being a supportive friend because that’s not how it’s supposed to work.
I seriously hope that this is another case of social media overexaggerating the amount of negativity that actually exists. It’s like the people who constantly complain about this show don’t know how any show or book series works. Every main character gets their time for development and time in the spotlight while others get a beam here and there before their own spotlight, and the plot goes on during the whole thing.
