RWBY Reaction

Okay I can’t keep this in anymore.

Ever seen the show RWBY? Not a bad show, truly. I often wonder if, when I was approached to turn Akashik into a 3D cartoon, if it wasn’t RWBY’s creator that had asked. (Sure wish I’d kept those emails. Thought I did but can’t find them.) I was dubious about the idea at the time and then he’d disappeared, so who can say. Either way, there’s this thing that’s pretty well done and it’s something I’ve been planning for Akashik and The Heavenly Bride since day one so I think: oh, something to learn from.

But watching it can be problematic. It’s difficult having a strong-minded character such as Taus. She demands there be no other characters before her.  But I look sometimes anyway at the thing. You can see the skill has come a ways since episode one, and their budget probably as well. I like to compare.

But the whole time I’m hearing this in my head:

Here first

And it doesn’t help to shush my character when there’s this OTHER character in the show that resembles Ganji. Oh crap, I mentioned it. Now she’s going down that ranting road. Ah ye gods. But Taus isn’t the first fireball woman in the history of super powered stories. She won’t be the last. You just can’t get HER to see that.

I need to find a way to ball and gag characters.

That is all. =^-^=
