    Pochi created the character designs, the Live 2D character rigging was done by a different artist (this is common for many Holo participants).

    She also likely isn't using the proprietary software to hololive uses to stream, and her rig predates her gaining mainstream fame as a mangaka (she's the lady behind the onee-san demon manga and the isekai mom anime); I imagine if she ever gets a new model it'll be drastically improved

    that reminds me, there are a good number of vtubers where it's tough for me to watch them because for whatever reason their voices just hit my ears wrong and I can't deal with it.

    Iron Mouse is probably the most prominent example, but the other day I happened to hear her in a clip somewhere, and for some reason something she said kind of reminded me of Elmo a bit (not directly but that kind of feel)

    and ever since then, I've kind of just imagined those vtubers with really distinct voices that would normally bug me as extremely horny muppets and it's actually done a lot to help me not be bothered by them so much

    I think Ollie has a wonderfully warm personality and her nature of being up for almost anything is very good... and she needs to put the Subaru filter on her mic to stop peaking the shit out of every single phrase she says. My brother gets migranes and literally cannot watch any of her stuff because of this. I'm not saying she should shout less or whatever, it's just this is a completely solved issue in the audio world, but fandom is like "lol my ears are blessed".

    Nyanner's has already drawn a pretty dope sketch of her DnD character, seems like she's getting really excited for the DnD campaign.

    The Internet was like that up until 2012, when people finally had enough of it. People ask "Why Zoe Quinn was so important in GG?". My observation is that, in the end, it was not about her. It was about having a critical mass of people having enough of trolls just being able to kick people out of the Internet as they wished by mass harassing them, and the trolls fighting back as hard as possible.

    Note that people STILL get mass copyright striked and most small YouTubers are just jack shit out of luck when that happens. We have touched several times that one of the advantages of big umbrella groups like Hololive or Nijisanji is having a safety net to at least try to do something about it, and the best they get is YouTube removing strikes in a month.

    Also, note that Nyanners was like fucking 15 when that happened.

    I remember listening to her talk about that experience on stream and thinking how fucking awful that has to be for a kid to go through, especially when she was talking about how the people would harass her parents too and she felt like it was her fault and that she had done something wrong. So disgusting.

    Ironmouse is going deep on power rangers. I had no idea she liked power rangers so much and it is awesome seeing her get so excited and pumped over them. I had no idea that there were 35 ranger groups.

    I'm not a Monster Hunter player but how easy is it to change weapon types if you wanted to? Also, how many of the Holos have experimented with different types of weapons vs just picking one and sticking with it?

    It's really easy to change weapon types, you just go equip a different weapon. That said, you may need to gather some materials to make said weapon since the only ones you get for free are the starting ones of each type.

    On a scale of FFXIV raid gear (collect tokens) to WoW raid gear (collect tokens and hope something rare drops on a weekly lockout), how time consuming is the "craft a new weapon" aspect of the game? Because the more it leans toward WoW, being really time consuming and luck driven, I kinda don't blame people for sticking to what they choose at the start.

    Depending on how long one has been playing, it could be a matter of already having needed materias or it could be 1-3 hunts of a given monster to gather the materials.

    So much less than either FFXIV or WoW, in terms of time. Starting even from no materials, making a given weapon of a different type shouldn't take more than an hour of play at most.

    it doesn't take long at all to get what you need to at least craft a decent version of whatever new weapon you want to try

    lots of the very high end weapons need materials that have super low drop rates and can take a while to find, but you probably wouldn't bother with those unless you already know you like and are gonna stick with that weapon (and even within one weapon type, there are usually like a dozen viable high-end weapons and at least a few will usually be relatively easy/quick to make)

    all the weapons have different combos and bespoke mechanics and playstyles, so it's a nontrivial effort to learn a new one ime

    i just spent this weekend trying to pick up a new weapon in rise after well over a thousand hours in world and about 50 in rise and sucked terribly with it

    a lot of vet players like luna can just pick up whatever and easily use it because there's a decent chance they used it at some point in the past

    Ina said she might use it during the collab tomorrow (assuming she hits whatever deadline she needs to hit and can make it) since Reine and Anya are bebe and they'll likely be doing low rank stuff.

    I didn't watch all of her first stream, but what you describe as "axe sword" is probably the charge blade, as it's a sword+shield that combines into an axe.

    A lot of us try to at least make an effort to not use the same weapon every game too, which leads into that. (Also, some monsters are just much easier with certain weapons)
