This has been months in the making. In this video I got over multiple aspects of RWBY’s animation for Volume 6. Including, character and action animation, Squash and Stretch, Yang vs Adam, and more.
Please let me know what you think as I am pretty happy with how this video turned out. I did have to include a bit to correct myself about one of my arguments.

Last year, I was asked by ToonamiFaithful.com to make a episode promo for the Bakugo vs Deku fight from My Hero Academia Season 3 for its Toonami debut. Unfortunately, I did not have access to the dub of the episode and had to pass it down to Alien Renegade.
Now that I find myself with access to the dubbed episode, I decided to make my version of that promo. Please enjoy!

so I've been following you for a while now and enjoy your defenses of RWBY and was wondering if in your time you have ever come across valid criticisms of the show or if you have any of your own?
Well yes fortunately I have.
A lot of the stuff said about the early three Volumes is pretty correct. Like about the bad voice acting (early RWBY voices were blatantly people talking in a booth), inconsistent animation (most of the show even back then was dialogue and yet no one moved normally until Volume 4), lack of a plot (Volume 2 plotwise had Cinder Emerald and Mecury’s intro, The paladin, CInder being discovered and the Mt. Glenn thing..in 12 episodes) and so on.
For the later Volumes, I have seen some good criticism. A guy named @faboover talked about the problem with Volume 4′s animation (specifically an overuse of squash and stretch). But it has dwindled a lot.
As for myself, I do have somethings to say.
A. They should have mentioned Whitely in the earlier Volumes so his introduction wasn’t so abrupt.
B. They should have emphasized him being abused by Jacques in Volume 4 at some point.
C. They should have made the Ace Ops less friendly to each other and more business-like so we get the idea that they aren’t friends more.
D. They should have had a scene where Clover’s loyalty to Ironwood was directly shown to be unhealthy.
E. They should have given Robyn some scenes o0f helping Mantle to make her a little more likeable.
F. Ruby and Blake still need time together to fully flesh out the team.
G. Honestly, Nora needs some development to flesh out her character. They need to give us something beyond her team.
And this is just stuff related to Volume 7. In Volumes 4 and 5, it made sense that the lacking fight scenes affected people because a strength in the show was lost while the flaws weren’t improved upon enough then. And although I disagree that the house from Volume 5 was bad, I know that SEEING Mantle would have given us more of a reason to see it stay safe.
And even that is just what I see as objective flaws. I have personal issues as well that I don’t feel like saying.
I get mad at people criticizing RWBY not because I think it’s flawless but because I KNOW it has flaws and yet these people fail to address them, blowing them up so much it’s comical, demanding subjective aspects be changed (even if it screws with what the show is trying to do) or just making up flaws.
It’s just so tiring to see an easy target be missed so repeatedly…

If you ever get the Bluray or DVD of RWBY Volume 1, watch the Director's Commentary for the episode in which Jaune apologizes to Pyrrha. You will not be sorry! It is my favorite moment of Monty Oum ever.
I will let y’all know if I see it! Director’s Commentary is always fun to watch/listen to. Gives insight into the story and stuff. And y’all know how I feel about background info.

The Promised Neverlandis a fantastically produced series that aired on Toonami back in April of 2019. Production handled by CloverWorks and Directed by Mamoru Kanbe; the show tells a story about children living in an orphanage where two of the children, Norman and Emma, find out that the house they reside in is a farm meant to raise the children as products for harvest.…
I wrote a piece on the shot composition for The Promised Neverland. Please give it a read and let me know what you think!
I think Clover catching Qrow in ch 3 is still my favorite even if the animation isn’t that great. My ch 12 work will tie with it though, since I believe it is some of my best performance animation to date.
However, my ch 11 stuff is right up there with it. I was so excited to animate big Salem and I think it turned out good. The close up of her is one of my favorite shots I did this volume.
Here’s a Fan-Made Black Clover Toonami Episode Promo I made for the 100th episode that is airing at 2am this coming Saturday Night.
Please enjoy and let me know what you think!

It’s that time of year, and fans once again get another incredible EP full of music from the recent Forge Tie In Event (TIE) that recently wrapped up. I couldn’t be happier for a new crop of music from the team over at William Street.
