PrologueAugust Schnee was troubled. He sat in a chair in the far corner of the room, but even here he couldn’t avoid the idiots in his family trying schmoose there way into his good graces. But that wasn’t what was troubling him. It was the look that, in recent years, had been permanently set on his daughters face. It seemed to start the day he told about the marriage arrangement he had set up between Wiess and the son of a competing company. It had made Schnee dust the only name in both dust mining and advanced technology. But it seemed to have cost his daughter dearly.Prologue by indianaj2098
She never smiled. She only sat there, a near permanent frown etched upon her beautiful face, and it hurt. It hurt to see her so sad, just like it hurt to see her crying after every lecture he gave her about being perfect for their families company when she was growing up. He regretted it each night afterwards, in his bed when it was just him, his sleeping wife, and his thoughts. He didn’t mean to make her cry
Volume 2 EndedUnderwhelming writing with lots of cliches, bad pacing, ham-fisted expositions, asspulls, excessive slapstick even when unnecessary, bad or mishandling of character revelations and developments, and obsession and strict adherence to rule of cool, which the action scenes are sweet, which is good, probably.

First off, I recognize that RWBY is still in its infancy. Volume 2 explored a whole new realm of detailed environments and background characters, which as an (albeit amateur) animator, I greatly appreciate. Walking animations are still kinda crappy. Story is somewhat choppy, jumpy. Action isn't at all balanced across episodes. And yes, the World of Remnant episodes proved informational but annoying.
However, I will defend RWBY with all my might. Given that RWBY is only in its second season, with new writers creating the story and being the first true show that RT has made that is completely 3D animated on their own (RvB uses machinima), you can't expect that they'll make a kickass show with no imperfections. Although some parts of the series are perhaps perceived as bad character development, I'd prefer to
