Waah! OOBLECK: “And victory goes to Penny and Ciel of Atlas.” Thank you for a wonderful time. RUSSEL: [groans] RUSSEL: Ah! [crowd cheering] Penny! Ruby! RUBY: [grunts] RUBY: [straining] Why… Ruby, this is my teammate. Ciel Soleil. Hi! I’m Ru– Ruby Rose, 15, hails from Patch. Leader of Team RWBY. Status: questionable. So… Penny! You two were incredible out there! How do you keep control of all of those swords?! It’s so cool– Penny! I believe it is best if we move on to our next location. Could we have just a minute to talk? So, is she… your friend or… Well, in a way. She’s like Blake. But if Blake was ordered to spend time with you. Oh! So, Weiss. Precisely! Does she know about… you know… “beep boop bop, does not compute?” Oh, no! General Ironwood doesn’t really want anyone to know. There was an incident with a magnet, but I was able to play it off. [laughing] Ruby, there’s something I’ve been wanting to talk to you about. I want to stay at Beacon. Penny, they’ll never let you do that. I know. But I have a plan. It’s been precisely one minute, ma’am! I’ll talk to you more soon, Ruby. PORT: “Our next match will begin in 15 minutes!” Oh my gosh, that’s right! It’s time for– YANG: Welp, now it’s our turn! WEISS: Just remember to keep proper form. YANG: [sighs] Alright. You’re from Atlas. What can we expect? Well, seeing as their kingdom, academy, and armed forces are all merged as one, I think we can expect strict, militant fighters with advanced technology and carefully rehearsed strategies. Or… whatever they are. FLYNT: Hey! You’re Weiss Schnee, right? The heiress. I am! I take it you’re pretty good with Dust, then. I do my best. Yeah! My dad was good, too. Owned a little Dust shop of his own… ’til your father’s company ran him outta business. Oh. I’m sorry to hear that. Sure you are! Hey! Why don’t you–? NEON: “Hey! Why don’t you–?” That’s what you sound like! Uh… NEON: Hey! Where’d you get your hair extensions? YANG: This is just my normal hair. Ooh, really? Yeah! Is that a prob–? You should try rollerblading sometime! It’s super fun! It’d probably take you a while though, since you’re so… you know… top-heavy. Excuse me?! Oh, here we go. PORT: “Three!” “Two!” “One!” “Begin!” Waah! [chuckles] ♪ We’re all born with a dream ♪ ♪ We wanna make come true ♪ [blows raspberry]
– [growls]
♪ We wanna make come true ♪ ♪ We wanna make come true ♪ ♪ The best will climb to the top like me ♪ NEON: Never miss a beat, never miss a beat.
♪ The best will climb to the top like me ♪ NEON: Never miss a beat, never miss a beat.
♪ The rest will end up like you ♪ ♪ The rest will end up like you ♪ ♪ I bet it’s hard to live with ♪ ♪ Knowing that you’ll never be this fine ♪ ♪ Don’t be distraught, don’t be sad ♪ ♪ You gave it your best try ♪ ♪ Listen, girlfriend, can’t you see? ♪ NEON: [giggles] Look! Now you’re bottom-heavy, too!
♪ I’m all of the things that you’ll never be ♪ ♪ I’m all of the things that you’ll never be ♪ ♪ I’m cool like the rain and I’m hot like the sun ♪ ♪ I’m a neon rainbow and you’re no fun ♪ NEON: You should cool off. Get it? Because you’re angry. Too bad all that money can’t buy you skill. [cheering] Whoa! What’s this? It appears young Flynt has just activated his Semblance, and quite a remarkable one at that. Ladies and gentlemen! Feast your eyes on Flynt Coal’s… Killer Quartet! Ooh! Flashy eyes! You know, you’re actually kinda pretty when you’re angry. Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP! YANG: Get back here! NEON: I wasn’t trying to say you should go on a diet. I was saying you really need to go on a diet! YANG: THAT’S IT! You’re fat. What? [together] Weiss! It appears we have a double knockout on our hands! OOBLECK: In fact, it looks as though Miss Schnee’s Aura has been completely depleted. She sacrificed herself to take out Flynt. Wait a minute… what’s this?! PORT: “Ladies and gentlemen! Flynt Coal remains standing!” You did it, Flynt! Don’t worry about her, she’s easy! [whispering] But kind of annoying! PORT: “Ooh, it looks like Yang’s angry!” “And you wouldn’t like her when she’s…” [screams angrily] [screams angrily]
– “upset.” FLYNT: Yo, Neon, go! OOBLECK: “Ouch! Sour note for Flynt!” Never miss a beat, never miss a beat, never… miss a… beat? NEON: [screams] [buzzer] [cheering] Weiss! Weiss! Are you okay? [coughs] I may not be singing for a while. [sighs] You know, I’m not sure that was proper form. Oh, ha, ha– [coughs] NEON: [high-pitched] What?! We lost?! We lost?! Team FNKI lost?! That was… That was… amazing! Oh my gosh, you guys were super crazy awesome! We should definitely party together sometime! Right, Flynt? That was a gutsy move, Schnee. I dig it. BLAKE: Good job, you two! RUBY: Yeah! Oh! EMERALD: What? Oh, nothing. We’re just going to be making a slight… hmm… alteration to the plan. What does that mean? It means that this will be even easier than we thought. QROW: You know, he’s making you look like a fool. OZPIN: His heart is in the right place. He’s just… misguided. Sometimes, I’m not even sure he has a heart. So, have you chosen your guardian yet? Maidens choose themselves. I simply believe I’ve found the right candidate. Ever since the day I met her, I had a feeling she would be the one. She’s strong, intelligent, caring, but most importantly… she’s ready.

    Was never really a fan of jazz, despite having been a pianist in a jazz band for a few years… that may have actually increased my dislike of jazz lol, which made it tricky to get through this episode.

    I never knew I needed a jazz version of This Will Be The Day. But I do now.

    Neons semblance: Annoying

  35. 11B Retired says:

    ….all I see is nothing but Mary Sues bashing beta males to the ground…. pathetic.

  36. Dawson Stemmler says:

    (Obvious) Spoiler for season seven

    Now that team rwby and jnr are in the atlas academy I hope that they see the complete team fnky, though, that would be a lot of characters. Maybe for only an episode or two, or even just a cameo.

  37. SSVCloud says:

    A really bad episode for Weiss, considering Yang beat team FNKI basically single-handedly.

  45. Dr. Bright says:

    Nyan breast shamed Yang.

  46. Choco Toasties says:

    If only Yang could roast outside of her semblance.

    When Neon talked about her hair, she should have replied with, "At least I didn't wake up in a bucket of paint."

    Or the top-heavy comment.
    "So you're telling me that your flat chests make you more aerodynamic?"

  47. filthyTrash says:

    it's a nice attention to detail that Neon's skates are aggressive skates instead of regular skates, because aggressive skates are more suitable for grinding on railings and other stuff

  48. David Basa says:

    Who’s here after vol7 ch5 but honestly why didn’t they pick ivory to move on to doubles
