>Read it all.
I stand by my opinion. What, as a consumer, have I got from these animators following da rulez?
Monty moves everything, little to no commentary, music in tone and it is a beating.
Current BC interrupts the fight (like in s6 Cinder vs Neo, RWBY vs Cordovin, Ruby vs Leviathan, s4 RNJR vs Fluffy, s6 Yang and Blake vs Adam, s5 RWBY vs Hazel (worst of them all).
All of them could be fights had they not paused them to deliver unnecessary, corny, edgy lines. Or long useless sentimental scenes with dramatic music pulled out of mexican stories.
Anon, I respect that you want to follow the book. But if the book means that I'm not getting jack, I'll prefer Monty's mediocrity, because within his mediocrity, I got entertained. I got fights that feel like fights. I am not here to go frame by frame to study their technique, then give them my opinion, I'm here to look at the product of their technique and then give them my opinion.
