It indeed is. Well, RWBY Volume 4 may not be the best season of the show, but it sure is an entertaining one. A lot of things have changed since the last installment, including the tone. This time, all four of the main characters had their separate journeys, hence stories. Weiss’s story was one of the strongest amongst the rest, and it was interesting to watch Ruby and Blake take the turns that they did.
