Another Monster Hunter based comic.
In a game where you spend you time hunting ever larger and more ferocious beasts you'd expect it to be fairly violent. Yet for some reason it's the herbivore death animations that are the most horrific. You watch them shudder and spasm for surprising long before you can finally carve them up.
Which brings up the issue of the Kelbi. It is one of three monsters that you can't kill in the game the others being the Felyne varriants. Instead you just KO them. Yet you can still carve off their pelts or hunks of raw meat and the Kelbi just stands up, shake itself off and prances away. If you think about it you're sending off a creature that's been mortally wounded to die a slow death. Heck, you're carving these bits off whilst the animal is still alive.
