This season made me want to drop RWBY altogether, it's so bad. It's a huge shift from how I originally felt, because you have no idea how excited I was for this season when last season ended.
This season further showed one of my biggest problems with this series. There's no payoff. It just goes on and on and adds things and silently changes or gets rid of others. Anything that ends has a shitty abrupt conclusion(sup Torch and Neo), or things that should have one don't. CFVY was hyped all Volume 2, and they did basically nothing in Volume 3. What happened to them huh? Couldn't have had them help Yang clear her name when she got framed? I mean they did fight Mercury and Emerald and encountered his semblance. They just went like "Oh hey they noticed something fishy in their fight with Mercury too. Funny huh?" And that was it. What even happened with that Yang got framed plot element anyway? And they had team RWBY fight Cinder's crew in the openings of two volumes, and that fight never even happened! (I mean, in a serious way with stakes. Yang and Pyrrha fought Mercury but not in a life or death kind of situation. Pyrrha fought Cinder in a serious fight, but Pyrrha's not part of team RWBY, so technically not even a main character got to fight Cinder. Then Ruby hit her with a solar flare so that's not even a fight) They built Cinder's crew up for 2 whole seasons, destroyed Beacon, and now they're second banana to these new baddies we don't even know without even really fighting the main 4 characters. Anyway, this season feels like filler, and doesn't do anything fulfilling in it, because the "character development" sucks.
