So little time ‘til Volume Two begins, and it’s in this final countdown that desperation will set in. Sure you can do productive things involving work or school or napping, or hell just rewatch Volume One, but why not reread some old recaps? Mine, even. Look, there’s links! Right below this. And they’re enticing, aren’t they, all link-y and stuff. Maybe you wanna click some? Never read one? Basically there’s screencaps that are the sometimes funny part and there’s text that’s the actual recap-y part. Cool? Cool!

Oh, and some awesome soul even made a TVTropes page for the recaps. That’s so goddamn crazy to me ‘cause I’ve lost like literal months worth of time to that site. So cool. Shoutout to donovan-drago for letting me know.

So yeah, final stretch for realsies this time. Can’t wait to see y’all every week for the usual recaps and whatever else I drum up in between! Aces.

Everyone’s favourite webseries about chromatically themed teenagers fighting monsters and gangsters and Weiss is about to return for its second outing of twelve episodes, and as such we the community are all high on the hippest drug the kids are taking these days that goes by the name of “hype”.

We’ve all also probably rewatched Volume One a half-hundred times, and certainly have our favourite moments, characters, weapons, ships et cetera. While simultaneously offering a bit of a retrospective on it all, I thought I’d put together a list of high points in the form of awards! With as much credibility and worth as an Emmy these days (I mean c’mon Emmy guys, did Tatiana Maslany kick your puppies or what?! I do appreciate the Fargo love, tho), but still, why not.

So we’re now a few days into July, eagerly awaiting the premiere of RWBY Volume Two aka RWBY 2: Pyrrha Unleashed. Less than twenty-four hours from now, Chapter One of Vol. 2 will premiere at RTX, Roosterteeth’s yearly Austin-hosted convention showcasing all things RT/AH/RvB/RWBY/other acronyms of fun stuff.

Cool news, for those not going: The main panels and such will be streamed live on Twitch HERE. The schedule for said panels are HERE. RWBY’s panel is at 1pm Central on Friday (Just use google to figure out time zone conversions) in the Main Ballroom, and that’s when V2 will premiere. Other RWBY fun includes a RWBY Music Panel (5:30pm Sat), a RWBY Vol. 1 Screening with live commentary (7pm Sat), and an RT Animation Panel (10am Sun).

Now, the less cool news that some might not know yet: The premiere will NOT be shown on the stream, nor be posted online quite yet. The online release date is currently unknown, but if it follows last year’s pattern we’ll get it on July 17th, probably. For those of you just finding out now about this, sorry and stuff, but don’t worry, a whole bunch of others in the community know your pain! And really, after braving the hiatus thus far, we’ll survive a bit longer. People who are seeing the episode at RTX will hopefully be nice enough to use a #rwby spoilers tag and not leak or spoil stuff in the main RWBY tag, but you never know, so be careful!

RTX weekend is a helluva good time for RT fans even if you don’t get to go, so: Enjoy some panels, make a billion plans to go there next year, and just yeah, celebrate it! We’re in the home stretch, RWBY fans. Continue being cool. Laters!

As Volume Two draws ever closer, we have received a delicious morsel of visual porn that could mean nothing or mean everything in the form of the Volume Two opening title sequence. After a couple of months of watching that shakycam rip of the opening’s premiere at PAX East, the fandom thought it was ready for the real thing to come. It wasn’t. Click the Read More for a brief recap of the opening, followed by a mountain (No, seriously. It’s DENSE) of baseless Volume Two speculation and enough predictions to put Pythia to shame. Let’s do this.

Now it’s time to say goodbye…

In case anyone hasn’t heard it yet, here’s the intro song for RWBY Volume Two in its full, lyrically foreboding as all hell, glory! Official iTunes download link here. And lyrics from Jeff himself.

Recap or analysis of it from me? Uhh, bad stuff is probably going to happen? But the same vibe was all over Volume One’s songs too, so. And it’s early days, and as fun as it’d be if someone up and died at the end of this volume (cough P-Money would be my bet cough), prolly won’t go that far. A bit of broken innocence on Ruby’s end, no doubt. Some exploration on the actual role of Hunters? Monty or Miles or whoever did say there’d be some Grimm explanation in Volume Two, so those things could be connected… So yeah. 

Not much else from me, really. A very awesome song - Jeff and Casey are always amazing - and I can’t wait for more to come. Hype train is switching tracks for the final push towards Volume 2 Station, only 40-something days away! Prepare yo selves.

To celebrate that it’s Roosterteeth’s 11th Anniversary this week, I thought I’d drum up a little something-something to throw into the general hiatus pool of crazy fun times! We’re more than halfway out of the dark - a dark full of collarbones and ship babies, but it’s the kind of dark that you get used to and even begin to enjoy, like hugs from a particularly friendly aunt - and, so, let’s celebrate that fact! We are survivors of a long campaign, sustained by morsels from the staff on Twitter and production diaries and with the hopes and dreams of a trailer, and we must do what we must do to continue onwards. So, what are RWBY, JNPR ‘n Pals getting up to over hiatus?

Apologies to RWBY-only followers, but I had a brief RvB hiatus idea that I wanted to get out. Also, to celebrate the fact there’s only two months left ‘til Season 12 starts! Hoo-rah. Click to enlarge ‘em, and so yeah, enjoy.

Day seven of hiatus. The fandom is thrown into chaos. The north side of the city has been overtaken by those wearing sombreros and wielding fake moustaches. The skies are screaming with the sound of the Volume One OST. Penny’s fans have declared themselves combat ready and are zeroing in on the east side, where I am holed up typing this message. But it’s here that I intend to stay, for I have to get this out there. The final RWBYJNPR Recap for Volume One. Read on below, as we say goodbye for now, but we do it with a sparkle in our eyes and laughter on our lips… And with one or two or thirty more crappy jokes. Onwards!

It’s been two weeks, and this previous episode was way 2spooky for the kids, but here we are anyway! Welcome to the RWBYJNPR Recap, JNPR-free this week, but no less awesome! This week’s episode has Weiss and Blake pick up where their argument left off back in Episode 2, Sun Wukong comes onto the scene with as many monkey jokes as I can throw out, and then there’s Penny. Oh, Penny. You… Are a thing. This the first recap you’ve ever seen? Check out this Masterpost to get links for the others! Wanna get down and dirty/get up and clean with this week’s?
