Do the side character dev later, after we have the main characters set. If they do a huge cliffhanger like Kakumeiki Valvrave I would like to know why but that is probably going to happen since the 1st volume is only 16 episodes long. I think this is really the only recourse to non-registered users, as I don't believe they can edit comments at all. I agree with almost everything except the run time. The thing about Red vs. The only positive thing about the episode length is that, admittedly, it does make it all the more satisfying whenever an 'Episode 8' comes. As for forever fall, yes that would have been perfect to have Blake sitting on her rock it will forever be Blake's rock and reminiscing, but that would have been a reference to the trailer, which was said to be not canon, so Blake may have never been to Forever Fall before.
Each week we are only given half an episode so it feels unsatisfying, but watching the entire episode once both halves are released somewhat makes up for it. I could be wrong, but that's how most of the forums I've been to in the past have worked. The show can tell more episodes, in longer time frames, with more relevant story points they can even explain in an awesome way how Weiss changed from Uniform to Combat skins in a techno machineibob! I think it would help if the treated the individual episodes more like parts of a whole, not standalone episodes. Pepper to instead of waiting 7 full days to watch a 5 min. Ofc people want more, longer episodes- The thing with that is, everything costs money. The thing about the trailers is that they fit because it was all action but if you make something 5 min. However, there is no excuse for Blake showing no personality.
Ok, now I really want to see a picture of a little Devil Blake urging her to let Adam kill everyone on the train and a little Angel Blake pushing her to save them. The reason for that being that each episode with the exception of Episode 1 and 8 is a two parter. Jar Jar destroyed just about every sequence he was a part of by being a blathering idiot flailing around trying to be funny while the drama's at full pitch. The series focuses on four girls, each with their own unique weapon and powers, who come together as a team at Beacon Academy in a place called Vale where they are trained to battle these forces alongside other similar teams. We all to this date are fascinated by Blake, we all want to know who and where she is. And a constant flow at that.
Yes I have to agree that the trailers do inaccurately describe the tone of the show. I will just say what is wrong as well as ways to fix them and at the end 1. I didnt expect full blown action, but I did want some epic fighting scenes every now and again that would boil blood and get you hype. Now I have to admit I do like Ruby and the rest alot but there as to be a little more creativity from now on, less sterotypes and cliches and if you must have some good ones 4. Of course the trailers were more engaging then the show. I do like, however, the variable lengths.
We're only just wrapping up seeing the first 'chapter'. Not the case, I love it, I love how it was made. My next point, the anime influences. There would definitely be something wrong with them being non-canon as the Great Monty Oum Peace Be Upon Him has declared them to be canon. Blue is that it was originally all comedy and no real meta story, this made it accessable for the 5 min.
I will just say what is wrong as well as ways to fix them and at the end 1. This rant is just way too ranty for me to take it seriously. There is nothing wrong with the trailers being non canon, Monty himself described them as weapon demonstrations. ? We see the setting of all the trailers and Adams face in the intro, and they definitely wouldn't do that if they were throwing the trailers to the wind. Just don't get as self riches as Angry Joe. I'm also still hanging onto my theory that the trailers take place sometime in the future.
I guess the best thing they could do about this is released one full length episode every two weeks instead of half episodes every week. There goes anybuild up for Blake or any chance to show. Who the hell is Angry Joe? I just think something's amiss. If they had kept him like Jar Jar then it wouldn't have affected the team much because his team's firepower and strength is not exactly diminished without his input. This is exemplified by the Forever Fall episode where there was alot of oppurtunuty to dive into Blake and even give us a little cameo for Adam.
But I do hope they atleast start with one of the main girl's storylines atleast. Monty recently hinted that the yellow trailer and I personally believe the Blank one as well will make an appearance either in reference or from a different perspective at some point, so don't be too pissed on that score. According to legend, Monty made it at a diner and made it from scratch, tha is resourceful he really put effort into fleshing out the world. I like homages and derived works with inspiration, I just think they should keep it minimal, but it's their call 4. I mean, instead of 4-6 minutes per week I guess you could do 8-12 minutes every two weeks, but then people would complain about the release times and would ask for faster times.
Now I realize there is the Vytal Festival coming up so that's a good oppurtunity to show us some culture. It'll help support continued production I'm no saint when it comes to ripping stuff off, but in some cases I am happy to sit through the adds on official sites or pay for content when I really think its worth my money. You may think that I hate it or I don't appreciate it. It just seems like a huge waste of what could have been. The thing about Red vs. This is exemplified by the Forever Fall episode where there was alot of oppurtunuty to dive into Blake and even give us a little cameo for Adam. As Rudy suggested, if you can't stand the current format but are still a fan then maybe its best if you wait for the end of Season 1 volume 2 to give your critique, at which point the episode length wont matter a damn, the Jaune Arc will seem like a minor diversion and you will hopefully see enough world building and back story to keep you happy.
