Now I know I could catch alot of flack for this but I feel it needs to be said. In comparison to the fans ideas of the RWBY world and characters, volume 2 sucks. Take for instance Wiess. In the fandom, wiess is cold and unable to let anyone near because of abandonment issues created by her fathers absense. Volume 2 destroys this very tragic charcterization of Wiess in 2 ways. First is the inclusion of Neptune. Shipping aside the fact Wiess shows interest goes against the very good character the fandom birthed and instead makes her into a stereotypical idea of a teenaged girl.the inclusion of her sister winter adds to this by making her ideas of loneliness and separation from her family unrealistic. You can have a bad parent, but theres no such thing as a bad sibling. They mess up sometimes sure, annoy the hellout of us, yet theyre still there for us when we need them. There is no eay a sibling would let wiess feel as lonely as her song makes her out to be. All in all I think the fandoms version of RWBY is a much darker, well characterised, visceral ecperience than what RT has crafted. Ps please forgive spelling errors was done with my shitty phone text pad.
