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!
