    I’m hoping not only for more BTS stuff for the Merc miniseries, but more Merc stuff in general. I think the comment sections for this video and CCC have proven that there is a HUGE audience for such content. :D

    I would love to see a spin off mini serie on Felix and Locus about how exactly they got to the chorus trilogie

    The effort they put into nailing the color palet in those episodes really shows.

    The story Miles wrote for Locus and Felix's side story was awesome and I'm glad they went with this art style, the colors looked so vibrant and excellent, props to the animation team for their fantastic work.

    Great job, guys. Love seeing the BTS.



    But a side-effect of this video is that my desire for a RvB Telltale game just increased tenfold...XD

    RvB: Mercs. A story about three mercenaries who want to make the world a better place. About "good guys" who are forced to take a darker road to justice. About a family man who fears what such a path will do to him, about a money-seeker who's ready for the thrill, and about a soldier who is becoming the very thing which he used to fight against.

    Nice to get a look into the behind the scenes of the series and what techniques were used.


    Also I would totally watch a series that revolves around the Mercs.

    Welp. If you guys need projects to keep the animators animating in the off-season (as was the explanation for Camp Camp and RWBY Chibi), guess you found one. I think there's absolutely an audience for this.

    While I did have a huge soft spot for Felix in the Chorus Trilogy it really was these three episodes that made me appreciate and love these characters so much. So much thought and care was put into every detail that made it a visual treat to watch! Thank you guys for your hard work!

    They should totally make a a series for the mercs, or at least more episodes of this. The merc eps were my faorite of this season.

    two minutes was hardly enough, but i'm hoping this is a nod to possibly getting more of the mercs in the future. still the best thing about s14 so far.
