I get the arm, but what's wrong with the body? Don't all attractive women walk around with their backs arched like they're made of Silly Putty? ^_^

The body looks a little too arched to me XD

Although yes, it's mostly the arm that ruins everything for me.

So, now that I've rewatch episodes(I own the dvd).....I realize I made a few mistakes:

Ren actually held up well during the fight where everyone found their team. Nora don't give a fuck though as she bounces Blake off the bridge...

Still don't like Jaune.

Not yet. It'll be all over the place when it is announced, though.

Good places to check are the Rooster Teeth site and Monty Oum's Twitter page.

I didn't realize that this series would be popular enough to generate so much fan-art. These are really nice.

Also eagerly waiting for news about the second season.

Really? Given the history and manner of its creation, it's kind of a no-brainer. Monty Oum, the creator, is well-known as something of an "up-jumped fan", with his wildly successful fanworks before he ever got hired by Rooster Teeth, and is very active in social media and (at least before RWBY) on DeviantArt. The characters (the four main girls at least) and much of the world's style was designed with the collaboration of some of his fellow DeviantArt artists. The staff are nearly all quite open about their love of anime, which clearly has had an influence on the design and makeup of the series. And we all know how much weeaboos love their fanart. Then they decide to hold a contest to design a new costume for a pre-existing character, while teasing future contests to design original characters? It's the perfect storm.

Among anime overall, it's not all that popular. It doesn't get the promotion among the blogs, many of which see it as something of a red-headed step-child, be it from weeaboo elitism, or the (comparatively) poor animation or production values. There's not a whole lot of overlap between Rooster Teeth's machinima fans and mainstream anime fans. To be honest, if I hadn't seen it on CrunchyRoll while I was looking for other anime, I'd have never heard of it. But among the anime fan-content creation community (at least those who aren't weeaboo elitists), it's huge.

To be honest, I'd never heard of Monty Oum before this. I'd heard of Rooster Teeth on YouTube but never watched their things and wasn't really sure what they are about, either. I wasn't sure how the anime fandom would perceive the series, as many YouTube comments seemed intent on debating whether the series should be classified as anime or not. (I know, I know... YouTube comments ) I had assumed that the fan art was derived from the anime community, but if this series was largely born in DeviantArt then it makes sense. Thanks for the information.

The "low production quality" doesn't really interfere with my enjoyment of the show, but I harbor a hope that at some point in the future it will receive a "HD remake" with higher-quality environments and character models (more specifically, I suppose it would be the model shaders that needed an upgrade). The voice acting and script-writing occasionally comes off as amateur, but I find that lends to the charm of the show.

The voice acting is pretty spot on for a english "anime." The main problem is the script writing is IMO not bold in it's sub-stories. Main story arc is fine, but it's sub stories are more or less cheap american-style teen drama. Makes the episodes where it appears seem like filler then actual serious episodes.

As for the overall quality, I like the lower budget, since it keeps things "possible" and highly "animated" moments feasible. Maybe a little bit of improvement on the quality, but I'd disagree with anything that would be more then a one time effort. HD remakes can come when the series is actually complete.

Certainly, I wouldn't want any "HD remake" to be carried out at the expense of advancing the story. I do think it would be a rather glorious way to relive the series, though.

Well, all evidence suggests (check out Monty's Facebook and Twitter) that the coming episodes will be of a better production quality than the previous, and the writers freely admit that they are playing the long game when it comes to plot, so the storyline from here on, free from some of the drudgery of introduction, should be better.
