With the final episode having aired, and a proper amount of time to analyze and savor the completion of the journey, I wish to be sure to offer my immense compliments and congratulation on its completion to everyone involved.
The tone and journey that we have been taken on this Volume is unlike any previous experience in RWBY. The depth and extent of emotions that we have been able to experience as a community together has shaken our foundation and previous understanding of RWBY, which I can only compliment all on being willing to take these steps.
Having the confidence to go for these darker, sadder, and more emotionally striking tones is never an easy choice, even when it has been in the planning and future direction since the beginning. There is the risk that when you do such things to the characters that the audience has become so emotionally attached to that a resulting uproar may result (let us be honest, with the dedication that Rooster Teeth fans have the uproar was pretty much guaranteed). But the mutual trust between the creators and the fans ensures that we can weather these stages together and support the adventures, victories, and losses that are to come. We take these tides of turmoil, harness them, and use them to make our passion all the more intense, and burn all the brighter.
It is only by making the tough decisions that true greatness can be reached, and Volume 3 has possessed so many tough decisions executed beautifully that, having taken the time to embrace the experiences through this past glorious Volume, I personally believe this to have been the most wonderful Volume of RWBY yet.
I so look forward to where it will be taken next.
