Basically what this anon said >>77606026
the problem with RWBY is that both Miles and Kerry think that they have to make it like an anime. They think anime itself is a genre when in reality anime is an artstyle with many different genre's, for gods sake Kerry admitted to watching anime as "research" why do they need to do this? Just write up something on your own. RT itself besides Monty did not understand anime so that's one of RWBY's biggest flaws. You can say to me all you want that RWBY problems are self-inserts but even when you remove all of that you have a bland and cliched show with shallow characters with the only good things about it are the fight scene's and music. The show would have been much better if Miles and Kerry knew they didn't have to copy famous anime.
