    plot twist: neo actually has a deep male voice and is embarrassed so she never talks but when she finally does speak its just a shameless pun like "I'm named after ice cream but but that aint mean im sweet"

      Jen Taylor voices the "Mysterious Narrator" and Salem.

      Elizabeth Maxwell voices Winter and narrates the recap as Winter.

    Is there any point for me to keep on being a Sponsor? It seems to me that all the advantages for which I'm theoretically paying have been transferred to this premium 'First' thing. 

    • Kaiser_2am_Neo FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      Well you are actually a First Member they just changed the name from Sponsor to First Member XD 

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

      10 months ago

      First is the new name for sponsors.

    • Imperf3kt FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Visual Novellist

      10 months ago

      The advantages are kind of lame anyway. Whoop-de-doo, you can see videos 24 hours earlier than the rest of the world.

      Apart from a few minor other perks, the real reason to buying supporter/FIRST, is simply to support RT financially so they can make more of the content you enjoy consuming.

    • maddog2201 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      You also get exclusives such as Day 5, Crunch time and Theatre mode, as well as live streams, though live streams don't help me much because it's either on while I'm at work (RT podcast) or starts at 3am (Off Topic Podcast).  Worth it to me, and I'm supporting my single source of video entertainment.

  • Imperf3kt FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Visual Novellist

    So... I basically just watched an advertisement for "First membership"

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

      10 months ago

      Yes, how outrageous for a film company to ask for donations when 95% of their content is free.

    • Imperf3kt FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Visual Novellist

      10 months ago

      @DavidtheWavid:

      That's not what I meant, I was just saying how they're somewhat shoving it in your face a lot without actually giving you any real content. The only new thing about this recap episode, was a bit of narration.

      The rest of it seemed to be all about "HEY TRY OUT FIRST MEMBERSHIP, YOU MUST GET FIRST MEMBERSHIP, HAVE YOU GOT FIRsT MEMBERSHIP YET?"

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

      10 months ago

      Considering they do that every podcast, I don't even really notice it anymore.

    • Kadoneh

      @Imperf3kt It's for people who haven't watched any RWBY since the end of the series. It also acts as a good little video to show new people. If you're not a fan of the Sponsor/First thing don't have it. If they already have a planned date they want to start releasing episodes of the next series, putting up a recap video before is common sense; it builds hype and gets people interested again.

      How to TANK, Yang Style


      Short answer: v1-3 Yang TWO ARM fighting style:

      2021009-1473521487460-YangTank_clobber.p

      Yeah.... I am pretty sure she can do equally well that with just one arm.


      They should have had IT Adam do the voice of Yang.

      That guy is freakin huge, no way he would have lost to Neo.

      even if she does get a new arm, will she be stronger...
      Her semblance is the more damage she takes the stronger she is, right, now that there is permanent physical and psychological damage is her base strength increased?

    If you guys wanna be more like anime, you need your recaps to be entire episodes in the middle of each season. Maybe have 5 minute-long recaps at the start of each episode, too.

    • GreyGhost9036 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Angry Beaver

      10 months ago

      and don't forget episode long monologs where one of the main characters starts telling everyone what he did and where he was when no one could find him, despite the fact no one actually asked him for his life story. And then every episode afterwards has to include a flashback to  said monologue into their fights in order to re-explain why this specific character is fighting. BUT don't forget the side friend of said main character whose reason for fighting is to fight for the exact same reason because for some reason the side character cant make up his own mind. SO that side character also needs a flashback stating their only reason to fight is to fight for or with the main character. And said flashbacks also need to be included in all fights.

      Also you need pointless side characters whose only roles are to yell out the names of the main characters' attacks whenever they happen.
