    Chapter 8 is out. Only 11 pages again, not including the cover.

    Does anyone know how long the manga is supposed to last? Is it only covering the trailers, or will it continue after that? Gonna take aaaaages to cover one volume plus add some extra scenes when the chapters are released monthly and are very short.

    Last chapter of Arc 1 of the manga is out. Slightly different and expanded ending compared to the trailer. The next arc is going to be set between volumes 2 and 3. I guess it might be related to Grimm Eclipse's plot.

    The most recent remnant scans is out HERE. It is the first chapter of the original arc taking place between volumes 1 and 2.

    Note: The fan translator will only do 1 more issue and then cease because of the official Viz English translation. The archive there will also be taken down soon afterwords.

    A majority of the manga had been reiterating the color trailers but some new information is in there. The most recent chapter however is all new material.

    It's mainly been just covering the trailers but now we're getting into some new stuff that's not in the show. Thoughts?

    Reading the splash page that starts it off and Blake's bio drives me nuts.

    "A mysterious girl who is always cool and reticent. She likes to read. Instead of relying on magic, Blake uses her superhuman physical abilities to fight. Her distinctive large ribbon holds an important secret."

    Just... this one sentence. Where do I start?

    1. She is the only one who is mentioned as having superhuman abilities in order to make her stand out, but by the nature of Semblance, everyone has one.
    2. Maybe this is more the fault of the creative team behind RWBY, but it feels like no one understands how magic works given this and the season 1 recap referring to Dust as a magical element. And it really shouldn't be hard. Dust occurs naturally and Aura should be the RWBY world's equivalent of Ki, Chakra, Nen, Hamon, etc. Physical life energy that can be tapped into to make them more powerful and manipulated to create Semblances, and give it limits. That way, when we actually see magic and are shown the limitless power of a magic user (i.e. Maidens) it seems all the more impressive.

    Other than that, the bios are fine.
