    Cue some angsty shit about how much she hates her sister.
    These are some greedy motherfuckers. Why are so many of them only in it for the money?

    Well since they're all in it for the money there's really nothing interesting about them. No one is there because the monsters cause problems in their country (since i guess they stay in this one place for some reason) no one is using it to avoid anyone, be it the law or someone out to kill them. Boring money, people get regular jobs for that shit.

    No one is even interested in harvesting the materials that come from monsters in order to help their communities. We know so far that they use the skin of some monsters for armor, and Adrien has a mechanical arm made out of monster bones. Are there medical applications to the body parts of monsters as well? Architectural?
    This would've been a great opportunity to actually expand on the world, talk about why being a hunter is a useful vocation, how it benefits people, why they hunt the monsters at all.
    And instead we get characters from random countries nobody cares about, all as deep as a kiddie pool, with dollar signs in their eyes.

    To play devil's advocate, I would imagine a lot more people would take jobs if it means succeeding in their selfish goals (getting money, fortune or just want a cheap thrill) rather than to help one's community and such. So I cannot say that this is unrealistic.

    It's not the realism in this case, it's that it isn't interesting.

    I hope the brown guy and Kessah hate-fuck at some point. He understands her, and is honestly not too shabby of a character.

    I really hope that, at some point, religion dude has to use magic to save people or watch them all die and mentally destroy himself with guilt or something

    Either it's more comfortable than we think or Joseco here has no idea how uncomfortable to sleep in a bunch of hardened/boiled leather plates can be. My bet's on the latter

    Do they rotate teams? I would understand team members getting changed as people are killed off, but do they just do it after every mission? If so, why on earth would they do that and spoil team dynamics? Or is their team only temporary because they're taking their test?

    I unwatched this thread without realizing it ages ago and I thought it just died. I think I left when the giant dominatrix lady was introduced.

    And it's still a whole load of nothing.

    If Joseco had any writing skill that medic should've been eaten or attacked in her sleep because of those earplugs.

    Alas, it seems Joseco will continue to tease those pointless holes for another day. Instead we'll get something probably more mundane.

    Nevermind, it's just gonna be more dull foreshadowing.
    Joseco, just get on with the plot already. It's been three fucking years and we're still in the set-up phase.

    R-really? Christ, dude should've just wrote a book or light novel if he wanted all this fluff to remain; more could fit on a page and we'd be going through it faster

    A bear-mouse-zombie thing? :confused: Ok, i have a question. What the hell is going on with these anthropomorphic characters? There are these clearly human characters(even tho they are animu fgts), then there are the ones that have more animal characteristics, then there are few that are some sort of halfbreeds(kinda like beagle boys in duck tales, with their human faces with dog snouts). I am sorry, i know i am being willingly ignorant and most of this is stuff is meant for kids, but i find some aspects of this kinda disturbing..

    It's just poor species' design and lazy world building.

    In addition to things you mentioned, here are a few other issues;
    Physical differences between species are very minor and absolutely undefined
    There are no behavioral, emotional or other psychical/mental/??? differences between species
    There are no societal or cultural differences between species
    There is absolutely no mention of differences in interaction or norms between species - what sort of relationships are acceptable, is it possible nor acceptable for beings of different species to become couples, and/or breed

    There's more too but these are some things generally important to world building and developing different races/species.

    Wow, it's even worse than i imagined. We should probably be grateful that the 'artist' isn't interested in genetics.

    I'm actually (very slowly) writing something that might be called a story and there is another race of people who absolutely hate halfbreeds and see it as an impurity both socially and religiously. I'm using it as a part of the drive for one such character who is a halfbreed.
    Joseco could have done the same with these weird furries and the inbetweens or whatever.
