RWBY: Black's episode SUCKS: How to Fix

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 5, 2013, 12:05 AM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


I really hated this episode/trailer. Video linked below, with reasons listed under the video. Edit: added links to the superior Red and White videos, and I highly recommend watching them:

Red roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=6… and White roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=6… were so much better.



Character Design
So she's another generic looking cat-girl who's boring, boring to look at, and her outfit looks stupid. Her voice acting is BAD. I've heard 4kids stuff sound better than this. And why did she betray him at the end? If I wanted a sex fetish chick with ears, I'd go hang out on FA where they're at least drawn better. A gun/whip blade? Again? She's a lamer version of Red (who at least was deadly) unlike Black.


 Lol What?
This is not how I was expecting the 3rd main member to be dressed for combat.


Don't Overshadow the Main Character!
Also, why is the male character, Adam, not only more interesting, but way more cool and effective. His sword with a shotgun sheath was far more effective at killing stuff than that retarded whip/gun thing. His design stands out, has more charm than whatever that overstuffed blouse + hotpants + overcoat visual mess that Black wore. Yeah, sure, design lifted from Code Geass and bleach, but at least HE was interesting! If you're going to tell a story about four different girls doing badass things with tragedy and pain as a backdrop, THEN DON'T HAVE THE SIDE MALE CHARACTER OVERSHADOW HER!

 
Knock knock, Viz here, we want our copyright back now.

Music
I wasn't paying attention to the forgettable music because the terrible voice acting, blurry animation, and boring fight scene got in the way. Which is a HUGE shame, because I love the music in Red and White.

Character Design - Fix
What needed to have happened is something that Red Letter Media said about Obi Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn. There needs to be a re-write where Adam and Ms. Boring are merged into one character called Blake. She'd have the design of Adam (with a female body of course) and his katana shotgun instead of another re-hashed gun scythe/whip thing. And she'd be alone, or with a revamped Adam being a helicopter pilot or something playing backup or transport in the background trying to keep up with her antics and gun/swordplay. Then Blake would be interesting, have a real role other than side-kick and she wouldn't look like a badly drawn attempt at ripping off Zatana from Young Justice. At least the Code Geass mask and Renji's hair/outfit from Bleach looked cool and distinct.

I thought I'd leave this video with one final comment:
I'd rather hang out on 4-chan during Caturday while beating off to images on Fur Affinity with the 4-Kids version of One Piece looping in the background than endure this abomination one more time. I'm going to go watch Red massacre hordes of werewolves, and then go watch Code Geass, because this cheap knock off isn't worth my time.

Here's hoping that Yellow makes up for this mess.

And the worst offense of all. She's supposed to be one of the four main women!

Adam: "Let's do this!" - Adam taking charge and displaying leadership.

Adam: "Buy me some time!" - oh yeah Blake is so important . 'go distract it for me, so I, Adam can do something badass and effective.'

Ms. Boring: "Are you sure?" - are you sure? wtf? do you not know you're fighting to survive? do you not know Adam's powers?

Ms. Boring: "goodbye...." - what? what just happened? did little miss sidekick really just abandon the guy who just one shot a giant mech? why?

And this is our third lead guys.
oh yeah, i bet her story is going to be so awesome...

sorry to be posting this thing, sense this is sort of long dead but....

I don't know.... alot of peoples fav is blake, shes one of mine as well with nora and yang. Its definitely your (very strong i may add C:) opinion that shes boring and predictable. I do agree with the fact that adam did steal some attention, but they were partners in the trailer, and blake is more swift less-critical attacks, rather then large critical hits like adam. Also sense he didn't seem to care about the crew members that she mentioned saving, she disconnected the cars, to save the crew members, and my theory is so she could have a bit of a fresh start because she realized no one else in the white fang cared about innocent people being caught up in it, though thats just what i speculate.
And about blake being generic, plenty of other people could say that about all the other characters, including adam. Considering how nora seems quite a bit like pinkie pie from MLP, and how theres always that priss/bossy/whiney girl like weiss in friend circles on shows (like rarity, also from MLP), the socially awkward girl thats always trying to be friends with everyone, but sort of fails at it, ruby, and so there simply has to be a removed/mysterious person with a sketchy past but strong opinions somewhere (and we all know jaune is the useless liability to the group). If you look at alot of "friend circles" in animes and other animated shows (Tokyo mew mew and a few other so called "girly" shows come to mind), it pretty common to see (in some or more shows) similar characters, or even just similar outlines of the personalities. If you don't agree i don't mind (and please don't be rude), i'm just sharing my opinion as you did about blake. Shrug

I appreciate your response, but I've never watched the show. I probably never will either. I loved the hype of the trailers and loved the music of the first two. Alas the Black and Yellow trailers were a huge let down. I frankly don't care anymore, and I'm currently watching Red vs Blue season 12, and enjoying the story so far. I just don't want to subject myself to shitty dubs, no matter what culture produces the show. I'm sensitive to sound, and there's only so much pain I can endure.

Yeah, i understand. Personally i've never had the patience for animating. I mean i'm not a really impatient person, but just having to draw the same thing over and over changing it just barely really annoys me, so thinking of the time it takes bad voicing and a bit of cheap shit animation  doesn't really annoy me if the plot is good (though at a few parts in the animation, mostly in episode 6-8, i'm just like "what the fuck was that?). But the first 3 episodes of the second season are out and in my opinion there cleaning up the chunkiness of the movements a bit, things are some-what smoother. I just think the reason you hate the black and yellow trailers is because in the white and red trailers theres really no talking, only fighting, so you can focus on the music more and how bad ass they actually are (well i don't really care for weiss but her fighting style is cool i guess). But if you listen to the music of the black trailer alone then you can hear it, rather then just listening to mechanical weapon noises (that are OK for sound effects) But i don't like the style of the yellow song "I burn", it actually rather annoys me. Well, if your willing to ignore the cheap animation its a good anime. Though i do think when they first started animating it they didn't think it would be as big a deal as it has become.

I don't know if you like the style of music, i know the singing could be better, but in my opinion its good until about 02:39, because the male singer rreeaalllyy annoys me, everything else, but when he's singing alone is great, But here is the theme for blake From shadows if you want to listen to it alone.

ok, seriously. Its a Katana/Cleaver/TEC DC-9/ Chain Scythe... That's pretty obvious, and you would have picked it up, if you weren't busy looking for flaws.
if you're going to watch a show, watch it for the plot, and the content/action.
Don't look for its flaws, and point them out to other people.
That's a Critics Job.
Are you a Critic?

Trailer. Not show. Learn to read. Also look at the date. Perhaps observation and reason are not yours to command. Also, reading a wiki to understand a show/episode/trailer/book is a failure in presentation and story telling. Still haven't watched the show, and people like you are a good example of why not.

I'm glad I could help. I honestly haven't watched the show yet, and at the time I wrote this, the yellow trailer hadn't even come out yet. My appraisal of the show as seen from the trailers and the first half of the first episode is: I'm curious, but I'm gonna wait until I'm bored before I feel like slogging through a shitty American Engrish dubbed anime. If I can get access to the Japanese dubs (someone else below you mentioned that they might exist soon) with English subs, then I'll try harder.

I haven't watched it either. I waited till all the episodes are out. I plan to watch it soon. I am going to take it with a grain of salt and treat it like Season 1 of RvB meaning it might be rough in some points (Even Though season 1 was manly saved by Caboose and the writing). Also that hopefully the voice acting will improve next season and on.

Strange, I actually thought Blake looked more effective then Adam. Though I DO agree that the outfit is a mess.

Adam: "Let's do this!" - Adam taking charge and displaying leadership.

Adam: "Buy me some time!" - oh yeah Blake is so important . 'go distract it for me, so I, Adam can do something badass and effective.'

-- A lot of main characters start as 'sidekicks' with someone else in sure, Vin in 'Mistborn' the jedi in 'Starwars' and other such things. This list includes several teacher/student or friend/betrayer relationships commonly found in anime.


Blake: "Are you sure?" - are you sure? wtf? do you not know you're fighting to survive? do you not know Adam's powers?

-- Yes they are fighting to survive. but does she know Adam's powers? How long have they been working together?

Blake: "goodbye...." - what? what just happened? did little miss sidekick really just abandon the guy who just one shot a giant mech? why?

-- We are supposed to question what happened. That's the point of a trailer. After seeing the first episode I'm guessing, (Though there's no proof yet) that Adam was using some sort of Grimn demon power because the fire design that appeared on his body matches the demon Ruby and Goodwitch fight in episode one. For a girl who ends up at a school to fight demons, leaving someone like that sounds like a a good move.

So ya. The voice acting could be better true, and I HATE her clothes. Overall though I think Blake evens out the team really well so that there is a character for everyone to relate to; the princess, the fighter, the self assured, the quiet book lover. ..  I think her place is necessary on the team and for story.

Based on your journal and comments below, some trivia:
(Wherein I answer questions that may have been entirely rhetorical.)

This page shows up as home of one of the top google-image results for "RWBY" despite not even having the relevant image in question. Weird, right? This may be how so many fans find your journal without including "sucks" in their searches.

The voice actresses for Agent Carolina (Jen Brown) and Agent Tex (Kathleen Zuelch) both have roles in the show. However, since these are calmer, less "constantly aggressive with something to prove" roles, you may find this less than reassuring. The diminished vocal tension makes their voices almost unrecognizable.

Altered versions of all four theme songs are mixed into Yang's trailer, in chronological order matching the order of trailers (R->W->B->Y).  I understand sound effects can be a distraction in the actual trailers, so here's a direct link to the list of soundtracks. Unfortunately, an individual clip of Yang's song doesn't appear to be readily available (the version in the list is the combined remix) but hers begins at 4:43.

I haven't seen the show yet. I'm waiting for enough to come out to watch in a short batch, just like I do with RvB. I'm honestly not interested enough in the show to really care. To me it looks like Korean or bad Chinese anime, and sounds like its dubbed by 4kids. But I'll watch it as it could get better, or maybe I'll find a fan dub. If I could find a fan dub, that would be awesome. Normally I'd be hunting down fan-subs, but at this point I'd pay money to never hear Red's voice actor again (or those two 'girls' from the Yellow trailer).

That's a good strategy,but I'm too impatient to do that. Which isn't a good idea since the episodes are rather short but you watch RvB so I shouldn't have to tell you how short they are right?
Hilariously enough,there is a chinese dub of it,I heard its pretty okay but I've never listened to it myself. Also,is Korean anime really that bad? Just out of curiosity.
It is getting better,either that or their voices just grew onto me/I just tolerate it. (Bah, I apologize for the bad grammar.)
Red's voice has been changed to be deeper and the 2 girls have not shown up yet.

Oh my god, its like there's an entire army of Monty Oum apologists. Is there a website I find you all at plotting to comment on this lonely journal from months ago? For fucks sake, the series is out now, trailers be damned, its September! Look, if the series is so bad that ya'll have to go find any google search combination of RWBY + sucks and all you guys are finding is this journal, that's not my problem.

1) In the first dozen or so viewings, even in HD bliptv or 1080p youtube, the motion was so blurry, that it seriously looked like cat ears. I still can't tell, and apparently the only counter to this was for all the fans to point out all the fan art and concept art that was done for Black. To which I say, that if I can't tell due to all the motion blur, then you did it wrong. Which ties in to my other complaints.

2) Your opinion, my journal. Not a problem, I liked White's music which I've found extensive remixes on youtube. Awesome stuff. 

3) Why? Because I can, and its my journal on my page. I care because Rooster Teeth can do better than this, and has shown a consistent improvement in both video and voice acting capabilities since  April 1, 2003. To hear their new series with really awful voice acting is just torture. Now, I'm not one to go on Facebook,  read diaries, or listen to developer panels so I don't know who's making what, who Monty Oum is or how exactly RT is involved, but I don't care either. All I saw was the advert, the new Rooster Teeth series, RWBY coming this summer 2013! And I got hyped over the smooth animation of Red, and the beautiful music of White. Then Black happened. 

Next , I prefer subs over dubs for this very reason. I don't understand why the male characters got mostly decent voice actors but the women all seem to have gotten real amateurs who are straining their vocal chords to do impressions of little girls instead of using their real voices. I understand budgets, but I address this in my solutions section. I've played flash games with better voice acting and I just don't know where they found such bad VA's. One of the main reasons I loved Transformers Prime and My Little Pony: FiM seasons one and two was the awesome voice acting, the well written stories, the good characters, and the smooth animation style. Yeah, this doesn't have the same budget, but if you've shown you can do the animation (Red trailer), and you do the music (White trailer), then why fuck it up with bad Voice Actors? Especially since you've got Rooster Teeth backing you up? Get the lady that did Agent Carolina or Tex or that one pilot chick from the start of Season 9 of RvB: roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=3… remember this? Why can't they get some badass in the badass fight scenes? 

Lastly, there's something that's really bugged me lately with you apologists. The first is the whole "shut up, go way, sit in a corner, and don't you dare complain or critic this series" mentality ya'll universally express. Its disheartening and depressing that there are so many people out there that don't know how to handle criticism of themselves, others, or the media that they consume. I analyzed, took apart, and suggested fixes to ONE TRAILER! Just Black, and though Yellow was a little better, I wish they had kept the theme of music only battles. Instead I don't even know what Black or Yellow's themes are. 

I'll say this to you and all the other apologists out there trying to defend their low self esteem by attacking anyone who dares criticize their current object of worship. Get over it. If my disliking one of the four trailers ruins your enjoyment of the show, then not only are you being very immature, uncertain about your own tastes in entertainment by taking a defensive stance, attempting to silence opposing views, but you're also searching for an excuse to do so. This journal is now the 2nd result in google for "RWBY sucks" and it seems you all are looking to start a fight to validate your own opinions. 

And that is the saddest part of all.

You aren't sorry, you're female and act as a child would because that is your mental state regardless of your actual age. You fundamentally lack the logical understanding of your own self and the self confidence to have your own opinions without having to defend the works of others as if they were personal attacks on yourself. You confuse your own emotional state for that of the creator, in this case Monty Oum, who neither knows nor cares of your existence or opinion. Therefore the show's continued success does not hinge on your rabid approval, nor will its failure(s) should that occur. You remind me of my co-worker who instead of blaming the writers, producers, screen writers, and production staff of Star Trek Nemesis for the movie's failure and nearly killing Star Trek forever, but instead blames the fans for "being too harsh."

Hey, SEMC that was out of order, man.

First, you insult her for being a woman which makes you look like a sexiest prick. (Whether you intended to do so or not is hard to tell.) There's no way you can justify that.

Then, you basically call her stupid and belittle and reject her opinions when you said in previous comments not to be so closed-minded (well not in those exact words), making you look like a hypocrite.


The reason she's critising you isn't because she's confused her emotional state, its because you're ripping on something she and many others like. We don't give these sort of replies to you because we have to, no, we send them to you because we want to, just like you want to rant on parts of a series you don't like.

I've watched all 4 trailers of RWBY and all the episodes so far, and I have to say that its a fantastic series. Sure, Black's trailer wasn't the best but it wasn't so bad either. So there are some flaws in it, what series doesn't? I honsetly can't see how that's going to get it cancelled or lose its awesomeness.

I've read all your comments here AND your journal and I've got to say its the way you say things people have a problem with. It can so offensive over the simplest things that its hard for most not to get 'butthurt' over it. I don't need years of experience to know that's not how a respectable critic should respond to his repliers.

Also, so what if some of the characters seem "unoriginal" that doesn't make them any less likable. Many famous, lovable anime charcters were based off some that proceeded them.

Please think this over carefully before judging.

I judge people by what they say and do and expect the same. I come off as harsh because few are willing to put forth the effort. I criticize many things and catch tons of flak for daring to have a critical and in many cases a negative view of various things. Then come in the fanbois and gurlz who come into my page to tell me I'm a stupid head and my opinion is invalid for no other reason than 'they like it, therefore I'm wrong.' You guys can have your own opinions but don't come and tell me I'm stupid for having a different view on any given topic and that I'm a sad sack of negative. Especially since the only things that are worth commenting and writing long ass journals on are either really good or really bad stuff.

Of course RWBY isn't going away, neither is Korra S2, or anything else I've ranted on recently. You really think I'm that stupid? If the only people talking about something are the ones with something good to say, then there's no discussion, no debate, and certainly nothing going on to help the entertainment industry improve. If you and what's her name are only after positive reviews then go on metacritic or some fan forum and jack off to how awesome the series is/was.

I, unlike what's her face, critiqued the BLACK trailer, not the show, the trailer, and gave pretty good ideas on how to fix it. That said, I do realize that fixing the problems is long past, and pointless as its now Sept and I made that journal months ago. Which brings me to the recent problem where people are commenting suddenly on this journal months later long after the actual show started and are just now responding to me in a hostile manner.

Speaking of which, your friend comes off as a complete asshole telling me that I'm "pitiful , irrational, and a negative sack of sadness." Which is completely uncalled for, and fails to adequately address any of the points I made, or counter with any alternative suggestions. Instead she goes on about how she loves lots of anime and my negativity somehow greatly impacts her enjoyment of various shows, and for that she calls me pitiful, hateful, and irrational. This is typical childish behavior as to be expected by the majority of females in fandoms who take it upon themselves to attack any dissenting opinions by virtue of their gender. This "I'm a female, and therefore you're wrong cause I like it, and you're a big stupid head" way of acting is horrendously overplayed and does more harm then good. I mention this to you in the hope that you will identify this behavior in your own actions and refrain from such actions yourself.

Oh yeah, and you can stop white knighting for her too. As a MGTOW, I have zero tolerance or respect for white knights. OrchidStarfire came to me, insulted me, and when I responded, she sent her minion after me. This is also typical bullshit female behavior and represents further childish inclinations. She should stand up for herself and not rely on others to defend her vagina/opinions/etc. If she wants to debate me in the future, I recommend she be a bit more constructive while being less bitchy and insult prone. Lastly she needed to be told that her opinions do not invalidate mine. Perhaps you should mention this to her the next time you communicate.

Oh and one more final thing:
"yes you may have your opinion but you shouldn't ruin anime for the rest of us" This.
This is wrong. Very wrong and should be avoided at all costs in the future. This represents the worst problem with childish women. This is OrchidStarfire telling me, "You can have an opinion but keep it to yourself and shut up because I don't like it." ORLY? You can't shame me into compliance, and your attacks only strengthen my own arguments, show others that your views are incoherent, and discredit anything you might have had to say in the future.

Okay I've just read everything you said.

1. I'm not white knighting her, it wouldn't have made a difference if she was male or female, I would've made this reply anyway.

2. I don't see what's so childish about standing up for something you care about.

3. Most females in fandom don't "take it upon themselves to attack any dissenting opinions by virtue of their gender" it simply isn't true, that's only a small minority of them. Get that fact straight. Again, you're still sounding like a sexiest asshole even now, no matter what way I look at it. This will probably make you think that I'm just attacking you but: that aspect of you makes you childish yourself.

4. OrchidStarfire didn't send me as her 'minion' to attack you, hell we've never even spoken to each other, I am making these comments simply because I feel like it, I don't need much more of a reason to do that and I don't care if that makes me 'stupid' and 'childish' as well, that's a 'fault' I can live with. I'm attacking you I'm just voicing my own opinion.

5. Yes, some of things OrchidStarfire and others say may have been uncalled for but some of the things you've been saying like "go on metacritic or some fan forum and jack off to how awesome the series is/was" aren't much better. It honestly doesn't give us any motivation to better ourselves, in fact it just makes us want to never read your reviews again.

6. Regardless of how old this review, as long as there are people still willing to comment on it that problem won't go away.

I have nothing more to say to you other than look at your own comments and ask yourself 'Does what and how I'm saying things really make people want to improve themselves?'

Just think about that.

No problem then. See you around. Feel free to add your opinion then instead of the defending the actions of others. Especially if you've "never communicated." Until next time ms. white knight.

I would probably have a lot more to say but Monstrel45 pretty much summed it up. We have never communicated but he seems awesome and more mature than you. The fact that you bring up sexuality just shows how sexist you are. As I said before, grow up.   Monstrel45's review of your comment is a better way to do things. He balanced his good with the bad with out trashing anything.  "This is also typical bullshit female behavior and represents further childish inclinations. She should stand up for herself and not rely on others to defend her vagina/opinions/etc. If she wants to debate me in the future, I recommend she be a bit more constructive while being less bitchy and insult prone." THIS is completely uncalled for. Also your comment with this nickname: "ms. white knight." is incredibly uncalled for. so no matter what you think, I think you should grow up, my opinion still stands. By the way I wasn't being bitchy or insulting, I was simply stating my opinion.

Monstrel45 you are very kind, I hope you will bring some light into this world. Thank you for helping. I appreciate it! :3 and the fact that you didn't reply negativity to *SEMC just shows how mature you are. I hope to grow and be more like you. Next time someone posts something towards me from this point on I will reply positively. I have seen the error in my ways. Thank you. :)

You are a negative sack of sadness. These people put their heart and soul into what they do! I'm not saying you can't give your opinion but your so negative that you just gave me chills. RWBY is a fan made anime with additional help from a good company, and attack on titan is an awesome anime, yes you may have your opinion but you shouldn't ruin anime for the rest of us. Yes, you can rate, talk, discuss, and give your opinion of the anime but you don't have to be evil and hateful for it. And I can only imagine you in your underwear eating chips just judging the world. Grow up. Stop tearing down the work of others and make your own work. If you think it's the worse. good day to you kid.

And this is a perfect example of what's wrong with artists and other easily butthurt peoples. Criticism, especially sharp, is taken as a sad sack of sadness instead of motivation to do better next time. I don't like filling people with fluffy balloons and nonsense. Its either good, or its bad, and if its bad it needs fixing, and I listed everything that needed to happen to fix the trailer. Which you also seem to forget is a trailer and now the show is out. The actual show which I haven't commented on yet, because I haven't seen it. Probably won't either, because the fanboi's/gurls like yourself who can't separate criticism of the failings of a specific trailer from the creators of the show. To you, criticism of any aspect of your fixation isn't a criticism at all, but instead an attack on your self, caused by your own insecurity regarding the fixation, in this case the RWYB series, and your unwillingness to explore your own feelings about the show independent of others' opinions. 

It is you who needs to grow up and form your own opinions on things, and stop listening/reading others' and instead realize what it is you actually like and why. And when you understand yourself, then you can debate others.

Yes, I am a female,but what does that have to do with my opinion, you sexist pig. Yes, I am young but for my age I still act older and try to be the bigger person. I was sorry, don't push your messed up comments on me as if I wasn't. You don't know my feelings. I understand my self to the extent of my sight in which I can mindfully make sense of, Although, you obviously don't understand your self either, you're blindly charging at other peoples works and when a few people comment on it as negativity as you do, you get "butt hurt" and slander people on a totally different subject that's not at hand: "You fundamentally lack the logical understanding of your own self and the self confidence to have your own opinions without having to defend the works of others as if they were personal attacks on yourself." Completely untrue, you're just blindly attacking. If I'm so young to you then please act your age not your shoe size, sweetie. So you do need to grow up if you replied to my comment knowing I'm younger than you, you must have checked my page. Stalker. I really don't care about the creator of RWBY or the show, I just think that a grown human should act their age instead of slandering someone else's work. Especially when you don't have any work to show. Get off DA, your only here for your negative opinion and judgement on other people's work. This place is for art not your complaining find a website with a forum to your liking. It's not that hard we live in the 21st century. Google, or Bing it. My approval is not "rabid" your replies to others comments just show how unjust, idiotic, 'rabid', childish, and jealous you are. Artists are not "butt hurt" with out artists your profile pic would not be here, your laptop would probably miss it's chic look to it, but yet you complain about artists in fact you probably complain about everything. If you don't like artists then stop using their art. No one said to "fill people with fluffy balloons and nonsense" nor did I tell you to paint rainbows, I'm just saying your opinion is yours to keep but it's just so negative that it makes your personality look disgusting. LOL I'm not a fangirl by the way, don't label me like you know me, like I said I only commented because of your negativity towards other peoples art. I saw all the trailers and they weren't the best and I didn't go slandering someone else's art, but could you do better? No? oh I see you like to complain for attention: " To you, criticism of any aspect of your fixation isn't a criticism at all, but instead an attack on your self, caused by your own insecurity regarding the fixation, in this case the RWYB series, and your unwillingness to explore your own feelings about the show independent of others' opinions." Once again you are wrong. I won't repeat it again. I have my own opinion, which made me to comment on stupid post. This comment you sent me is just reflection of yourself which leads me to my final conclusion. Find a new website to post your negativity, this site is for art not your stupidity. You. Need. to. Grow. Up. End of story.

Blake is first of all my favorite character and second of all I think a very good edition to the team.I like her character, personality and how it contradicts Yangs. Which will work very interestingly in the story. That's also a bow on her head, not cat ears.

Wow, ay I get the whole overshadowing bit, and if Adam got that much intro time he should have a big impact on the story (unlikely), and yea I was repuls by the VA, but everything else, srsly?
I thought the theme was awesome, the only reason I didn't pay much attention to it was due to all the onscreen action.
Blake's weapon, "a gun/whip blade? Again?" wut? WUT? WHEN HAS THAT EVER BEEN ANYTHING EVER BEFORE THIS!? It's one of the more original weapons imo.
Pfff, dunno what you're complaining about her outfit for, seems fine to me.
Adam is not a "code geass meets bleach" he's a Yasha from Asuras wrath meets Vergil from devil may cry (original ones) with a red and black color scheme.
Truth be told you were so negative about the whole thing I didn't read any other areas you brought up.
Also the ending kind of made me think there was some unexplained backstory to be explored in the series.
Tl,dr: you're mostly wrong

ok the voice acting is meant to sound monotone, the fact is the voice fits her personality. Her weapon is not a ripoff of Ruby's, ruby has a high caliber sniper rifle scythe, the weapon Blake has is a katana with a pistol as a blade guard and the seethe has a sharp edge that can be used in combat, the ribbon on her arm attaches to her blade and wraps around the trigger, this is completely different from ruby's weapon. also her look is meant to resemble her darker personality, she cares about what is important but disregards drama and idiots, she supports the good but dislikes the evil. Also my theory is she leaves the guy because he was going to harm the crew with explosives to separate the carts and she did not support this.

You know, I might just have to switch RWBY as worst anime of 2013 and give that award to Attack on Titan. For all my complaints about RWBY, its just bad in every way. But nothing spectacular. Just bad.

But Attack on Titan is grotesquely bad. No plot, no characters, no development, barely any action, everyone screams their lines, the tension is kept artificially high constantly with ridiculously long whiny fest dialog sections where nothing gets resolved, so much deus ex machina that its a joke now, and it just draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags.
And its obscenely popular right now beyond all reason.
