An episode of unfathomable quality
17 February 2016 | by artur-artborgSee all my reviews

The English language is flawed. All languages are. To this day, there are experiences and emotions which no vocabulary on Planet Earth can properly describe; we simply lack the tools. This episode is such an experience.

"RWBY 3.12: End of the Beginning" is one of those rare experiences that leave you truly, deeply speechless. I've felt like this before, but only on some very few occasions (first viewing "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" – my all time favourite film – was one of them).

I highly doubt that anything else produced in 2016 will come even close to this extreme quality (with the possible exception of the next Volume of RWBY).

The greatest episode so far of a web series that stands superior to any motion picture or TV-series I have seen the last few years. Thank you, Kerry, Miles, Gray, Lindsay, Barbara, Jen, Samantha, Arryn, Kara, Vic, Jeff, Casey and everyone else. Thank you Monty.

Thank you.
