>>108453866>>108453868>Volume 4/5 had way more Ruby than Jaune
The problem with Jaune and Ruby in volume 4/5 isn't screen time. It's substance.
Volume 4, Ruby is sharing the spotlight with Jaune, but in the end Jaune edges out more and still manages to overshadow Ruby's presence in that volume since this volume focuses mainly on JNR.
We get brief moments focuses on Ruby too that volume. We get waking up in the middle of the night due to ptsd from beacon, but almost immediately we're followed with what Jaune's doing during those scenes and his drama with Pyrrha.
We're learning more about Jaune's family.
We're starting to see the beginnings of his distrust with Ozpin, bitterness, his feelings on Ruby being hunted, the maidens and Gods during the campfire scene(Ruby gets a few moments to to give input in that scene as well)
He's the one planning the strategies to take down the two main Grimm we see in the volume.
We finally get a moment of where Ruby is starting to process her grief, until Jaune cuts her short and gives her the cheer her up speech.
They try to make him less prominent, in the end he ends up having maybe 2 lines less than Ruby that volume.
Volume 5. Jaune does have less of a presence, but so does Ruby to be honest. And aside from a fight scene here and generic friendship speech there, Ruby doesn't really do much here either. Towards the end, focus shifts right back to Jaune, him gaining his semblance, his drama with Cinder and Oz. And this is despite Ruby having more lines than him in this volume.
