I agree 100%. The extremely messy intro made me very skeptical for this volume. However, I think this volume may actually be taking a turn for the better, or at least when compared to Volume 5.
For me, I just want classic RWBY back. That probably won’t happen, especially with Monty gone. But I feel that same scenes in Volume 6, i.e the train fight, and Neo vs Cinder, are getting there. The iconic, fast paced fights in the original volumes gave me a rush of excitement, especially with the amazing music by Jeff and Casey. These scenes really brought me back to those times.
If RWBY goes back to what made it so great, I would be beyond grateful. My biggest fear, though, is that this volume is going to end like Volume 4, leading up to a terrible finale in Volume 7.
