It’s about time something got some closure. How evil is RWBY volume 5, episode 9?
After all that buildup, we’re finally starting to see some payoff. It took them forever to get here, but at least this episode was somewhat satisfying. It started off with Ruby talking to Oz and Qrow. It only lasted for a few minutes but we learned a little more about the artifacts. Mainly that Salem hasn’t yet retrieved Beacon’s artifact because of how protected it is. I hope they explain that a little more soon. We got a little bit with Raven too, but that was set up for the next episode.
After that, we went back to Blake. And not a single drop of exposition this time. Just a whole lot of fighting. Blake fought her old friend. You know, the assassin girl I can’t be bothered to remember the name of. She has yet to do anything to make me remember her. Well, Blake finally settled things with her. The fight was pretty fun to watch too. One of the highlights was Blake’s mom though.
She might look weak but that lady kicked some tail. She emptied her gun on some White Fang and then she beat an assassin with a serving tray… I guess even in RWBY moms are scary. There’s even a scene where she dragged the assassin through the house. But.. the house is under attack. Did she beat up more people while on her way to regroup?
The two monk brothers also got what was coming to them and thankfully no one in Blake’s family died. It looked bad when her dad got stabbed, but he tanked it. After all the fighting, Blake managed to unite her people against the White Fang. Looks like I was right about a civil war, after all. Even the assassin girl joined her and… crap, now I do have to remember her name.
I would say this episode is about as evil as a Killer Robot Army. It actually felt like good old RWBY, again. It was balanced… well, as balanced as RWBY gets. I can only hope the next few episodes stay like this. If you like anime that are a little more out there, check out Chris’s reviews for Anime Gataris.
Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thank’s for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
