    What does the phrase on Summer Rose's Placard mean? "This (Thus) Kindly (?) I Scatter"


    RT Paid a handful of people to include this phrase on Summer's tombstone, just beneath her name,.. So,.. yeah... crypt cannon.

      Its from the poem "The Last Rose of Summer" where Summer Rose gets her name, the line is "Thus kindly I scatter".

      It also refers to her semblance. As we saw in the opening animation of season 1, Summer has a similar rose petal ability that Ruby has, the message alludes to this in the way of spreading ashes and of passing on.

      The show has become way to serious and forgotten it's playful nature.

      I feel thought its maturing right along with them though they are getting older as well so obviously it wont stay the eexact same and they are giving us a story and in depth into the characters more

      It didn't forget its playful nature, it was always heading in this direction. The events of this Volume were being foreshadowed back in Volumes 1 and 2. And then there's the lyrics of the opening themes for 1 and 2.


      This Will Be the Day:

      "Your world needs a great defender.
      Your world's in the way of harm.
      You want a romantic life; a fairytale that's full of charm.

      Beware that the light is fading;
      Beware if the dark returns.
      This world's unforgiving, even brilliant lights will cease to burn.

      Legends scatter.
      Day and night will sever.
      Hope and peace are lost forever."


      Time to Say Goodbye:

      [Basically the entire song]


      The show never forgot its playful nature, because it was always heading in this direction.

    Man, from the start this Season is promising. That opening had a strangely mature feel to it. The fighting animation is top notch and the weapons designs are crazy as ever (Monty's legacy lives on).


    I didn't think they could make Neo look any more cute-and-ruthless yet with that outfit they manage it.


    The facial expressons are definitely more detailed, loving the extra touches here and there. (Especially Blake's "But you could!" When Pyrrah offers to pay.)


    That's Monty's Oum brother, right? Voicing Ren?


    Solid start so far.

      So you're looking for clues as to what's gonna happen in Volume 4 while I'm looking for therapy.


      Btw, if it's anything I think I noticed that Team JNPR fell into the abyss in this order.

      Pyrrha, Jaune, Nora, Ren

    All aboard the feels train! Such an amazing episode that literally had me at the edge of my seat the whole time like wow this episode really just hit me straight in the feels with Arkos fans finally getting a kiss just to have it take away with an arrow to the chest, also Ruby's power looks pretty interesting to learn about in the next volume. So much crazy things happened in the episode and with Weiss taken by her father, Blake on the run, Yang broken physically and mentally, and Ozpin gone I wonder what will happen in the next volume! AHH I wish I had a time machine or I could freeze myself till the next volume comes out but yea overall such an amazing chapter to end an amazing season, good job RT!


    Here is my full review on the episode:

    That was a HELL of a start, RT! The animation has changed a bit (obviously) but not in a bad way. Can't wait to see what Kerry, Miles, and the animation team have in store. If you all keep serving, I'll keep coming for more. Volume, after Volume, after Volume.

    Can we talk about how in the credits at the end, team RWBY has a defeated, sad look on their faces when it says "Created by Monty Oum"?

    • Cordless549 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I took notice of the fact only Yang has her eyes closed. From a story perspective, I think team RWBY may not be all together at the end of this season.

    • standiggs12

      1 year ago

      Well considering Yang may be on a journey to find her mom, it's quite possible they'll be split up and not reunite. Hell, she may even find Raven discover she's bad and maybe even join her mother? Who knows. This season has been taking alot of twists and turns lately.

    Hey everyone, I plan on purchasing the Blurays of Seasons 1 and 2 of RWBY at some point soon and just have a quick question:

    Does anyone know if these are region free?


    I ask because I live in the UK and Primarily use Playstation for playing movies on disc, much appreciated! :)

    • Twin3 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      I have no problem with them either. I'm also fairly sure I recall finding it mentioned somewhere that they're region free back when i bought vol 1 (can't find it now so might just be my imagination though. No region is stated on the covers.)
