Molehill Mountain Episode 232 – Different Strokes


As folks go, I’m different.

  • 0:16 – I talk about a new show I watched but don’t say which one. Frustrating, no?
  • 7:42 – Monster Hunter Rise is a bit of a slog in High Rank because there’s little that’s new
  • 40:01 – Hoopla is kind of a library streaming service but sadly, my library isn’t part of the program so I can’t use it
  • 46:05 – Let’s talk about all the beloved anime that I just don’t care for!

7:14 PMScottyJayManAustralia’s rollout is a complete mess. We’ve missed out target by about 75%

7:15 PMaddictedtochaoswe get sick days at my work too, it is generally frowned upon using them

7:16 PMaddictedtochaosonly because people have abused it

7:17 PMLynndy Leeonly 5-6 days?!

7:17 PMaddictedtochaoswe get 3 but they can roll over to the next year, up to 10 can be banked

7:19 PMLynndy LeeI used to get like 10-14 but since I started freelancing, I can’t afford sick days

7:20 PMLynndy Leebut sick days are days for when you’re sick. Vacation days are different.

7:28 PMtwistedideashow different is Rise from Worlds

7:50 PMaddictedtochaosi can’t get past the art direction for One Piece

7:50 PMtwistedideasOne Piece doesn’t start off great

7:51 PMLynndy LeeI can’t stand the character design either so never bothered to watch it

7:53 PMCyberian_TigerHowdy Howdy ANdrew

7:54 PMLynndy Leeah… I don’t get One Punch Man either

7:55 PMaddictedtochaossame

7:56 PMLynndy LeeBojack is an ass

7:59 PMLynndy LeeNever bothered to watch Rick and Morty but I will always have Futurama

7:59 PMCyberian_TigerCan’t stand the Cal-tech art style anymore I think it ran its course years ago. was nice at first

8:00 PMCyberian_TigerRick and morty I did enjoy, the fandom on the other I could not stand

8:02 PMCyberian_TigerNeon Genesis Evangelion I enjoyed at first but I think the further I got into the more it just I really started to dislike it. Don’t get me started on the ending.

8:02 PMaddictedtochaosnot an anime but have you seen Megas XLR?

8:03 PMCyberian_TigerI didn’t like Megas XLR at first when it came out. But I really started to like it as I got older

8:05 PMCyberian_TigerI find it interesting as I got older there are shows I didn’t like at first but started to later.

8:06 PMaddictedtochaosit was consistently in the top 5 of cartoon network’s shows, but was inexplicably cancelled

8:07 PMCyberian_TigerNaruto I didn’t like, everybody in my school. We had a anime club that played it most of the time.

8:07 PMLynndy Leethose are scars?

8:07 PMaddictedtochaosif im not mistaken megas can be found on youtube easily, i believe it is public domain

8:07 PMCyberian_Tigerreally?

8:08 PMaddictedtochaosall of megas aired

8:08 PMCyberian_TigerI know they canceled Swat Kats before airing the rest of the last season.

8:09 PMmatthew wilsonyup swat kats is a deep cut

8:10 PMCyberian_TigerWhat makes it more deeper is the fact there is a unair finished ep

8:10 PMaddictedtochaoscartoon network gave up the rights last i heard

8:11 PMaddictedtochaosheresy

8:11 PMLynndy LeeI haven’t watch Cowboy Bebop

8:12 PMCyberian_TigerDon’t like Cowboy Bebop? You wait right there, Andrew, I’ma go set up the public burning.

8:12 PMaddictedtochaosfaye isnt meant to be likable

8:12 PMCyberian_TigerBut in all seriousness I can see why you don’t like it. And I agree with faye. I would’ve have thrown here out.

8:14 PMaddictedtochaosoutlaw star is great

8:15 PMaddictedtochaostrigun?

8:16 PMCyberian_TigerI did enjoy Trigun, there are some eps where I’m just “Okay okay..can we just move on with the plot?”

8:18 PMCyberian_TigerThe characters go to places but sometimes the plot don’t.

8:20 PMCyberian_TigerI remember when Final Fantacy movie came out in the mid 2000s and there was all these pirated DVDs crashing Region locked DVD players. Happened in my anime club. Spent the entire lunch troubleshooting

8:21 PMLynndy LeeI thought Tiger was referring to advent children

8:21 PMaddictedtochaosspirits within was a good sci-fi movie but probably should not have had the final fantasy name attached

8:23 PMCyberian_TigerYeah I was refering to Advent children, 2005 if i recall

8:25 PMaddictedtochaosif they were going to make a FF movie it should have felt like aghame we could have played

8:25 PMCyberian_TigerWhile we are discussing controversial opinions: I couldn’t get into FF7, I just can’t take a liking to Cloud.

8:26 PMaddictedtochaosyeah. VII never grabbed me

8:26 PMaddictedtochaoslove FFX though

8:27 PMaddictedtochaosthat was X2

8:28 PMaddictedtochaostidus

8:28 PMaddictedtochaosauron was cool

8:30 PMCyberian_Tigerright on take care Andrew. We’ll save the public burning for that Cowboy bebop later.

8:30 PMLynndy Leehaha
