    The voice acting and script certainly had ups-and-downs.


    Bad lines:
    > Weiss: "Oh, the amount of planning and organization that goes into this event is simply breathtaking!"
    > Sun: "Huhuhuhuhahahahahahaha..."
    > Weiss: "Quick! We have to observe him!"


    BEST lines:
    > Weiss: "And, as a representative of Beacon, I feel as though it is my solemn duty to welcome them to this fine kingdom."
    - Blake: "She wants to spy on them, so she'll have the upper hand in the tournament."
    - Weiss: "Ugh, you can't prove that."
    - - - -
    > Blake: "They're a collection of misguided Faunas."
    - Weiss: "Misguided? They want to wipe humanity off the face of the planet!"
    - Blake: "So then they're very misguided."
    - - - -
    > Yang (to Penny): "Are you sure you didn't hit your head?"
    - Blake: *elbows Yang*
    - - - -
    > Penny: "Sensational! We can paint our nails, and try on clothes, and talk about cute boys!"
    - Ruby: "Oh... is this what it was like when you met me?"
    - Weiss: "No, she seems far more coordinated."
    - - - -
    > Weiss: "Wait, you're fighting in the tournament?"
    - Penny: "I'm combat ready!" *salute*
    - Weiss: "Forgive me, but, you hardly look the part."
    - Blake: "Says the girl wearing a dress?"
    - Weiss: "It's a 'combat skirt'."
    - Ruby: "Yeahhh!" *slap-hands*




    Awkward animations:
    > gravity-defying banana peels
    > Sun Wukong's running
    > everyone's walking


    Awesome animations:
    > Team RWBY's expressions around Penny (especially Weiss)
    > facial expressions in general (as opposed to body motions)


    I have hope that body motions will improve in the future, though, based on demos that Monty's recently tweeted:
    - Yang partial ragdoll
    - more Yang adventures
    - sassy Blake (copying Weiss in Ep. 6; see post by dan-heron in SB's RWBY thread)

    Can't go the "White Fang just took a radical turn in recent history" any more with Weiss' backstory
    They're specifically called a "once peaceful group" so we're probably not looking at more than ten to fifteen years.

    Burnie Burns, director of roosterteeth and VA of Church, and Joel Heyman, VA of Caboose and Professor Sonic, both often play cops in the roosterteeth shorts, whenever it is necessary that cops appear on screen.

    If you didn't know that RT shorts were a thing, let me get you started with the best one.

    Or she, like many young people in real life, didn't join until she was a young woman and the group had chosen violent tactics well before she joined. Here's what can probably be considered definite:

    Based on the reporter's comment in episode 1 the White Fang was originally a peaceful group.
    Following from that, they later in life chose to pursue their goal through violent tactics.
    From Weiss' comments about the influence of their tactics on her father and Blake not calling it false we can assume that the shift to violent tactics happened, at the latest, when Weiss was maybe ten or so and probably was even earlier than that considering Weiss' description of how it so thoroughly impacted her childhood.
    Blake was a member of the White Fang for an uncertain amount of time.
    During a train attack that Blake was involved in Blake chose not to follow Adam's orders but instead save the crew of the train. This might have been the first mission she was on or it might not. Based on physical appearance it seems likely that it was only a short time after the attack that Blake decided to pursue a life as a Huntress instead.

    Um, Blake is kind of technically already a young woman? I mean, she's seventeen. Unless she joined White Fang at like, fourteen or fifteen, but at that point I don't think she'd be considered a 'young woman'.

    Yes? That was his point.

    Soooo, on a re-watch, I am leaning more and more toward Penny being a robot. Or, I dunno, a homunculus or a golem or something. Whatever this universe has. She has a very mechanical feeling to her dialogue, and her outfit features what I can't help but feel are Tron Lines. Plus, I wonder if 'Penny' is meant to evoke the starting syllables of 'Pinnochio'?

    Part of being a writer is to fuck what people think and tell you and just write. Write to prove the naysayers wrong. Throw your giant brass testies on the table and say, "Look at that bitch, I wrote it. Fuck yeah."

    You know, I've all but forgotten that we had fairy tale references in here. (oh god my hands typed tail on instinct, what has Hiro Mashima sensei done to me?)

    Speculation by the fans seem to be spot on. I wouldn't be surprised.

    If she is, then she might be connected to Roman, because Pinnochio is where his character was inspired from(Romeo Candlewick/Lampwick).

    She might just be his killer attack bot, and right now she's in a 'dormant' mode. Then she goes all terminator like when Roman orders her to attack.
