Oh Look

...there's a Selkie.

I'll give them points just for that. 

Not a monstergirl any of us were expecting...especially in a bikini. 

From episode 2 of Monstergirl Doctor, which follows two rookie doctors, straight out of med-school who are starting out their own private clinic in the town of Lindworm. 

One of the doctors is a young man and his business partner is a 24 foot long snake woman. You see, the show is set in a fantasy world populated with sentient versions of the D&D Monster Manual. Both the human and snekgrrl are doctors specializing in non-human races...most of whom haven't historically been serviced by the medical profession until recently. 

The animation is diffident though the art itself is good. The character designs are by Z-Ton, and the stories, while fairly anodyne are low level medical mysteries. But there's a difficulty: This is set in a medieval fantasy world with little or no magic. They understand germ theory and are practicing "medicine" as we understand it (with reference books, medical exams and treatment) , but their tech level is otherwise is high middle ages or renaissance. Which is kind of interesting and weird. 

Despite the hype (and the first minute of episode 1) Monstergirl Doctor, is, perhaps surprisingly, both SFW and wholesome.  So, yeah, it subverts expectations...but in a good way. 

My only concern after two episodes is that I'm not sure it's going anywhere. Still, it's a pleasant enough 30 minutes.

2 Some people were saying that the "doctor" setup is just an excuse to fondle beast girls under a pretense of exam. A similar charge was leveled against Gift, for using blindness of the MC.

3 I'd agree wxcept that while the first 60 seconds of episode 1 look like they belong in Ishizoku Reviewers. That scene (which has an innocent explanation) is so different from the rest of the series in tone that I suspect executive meddling. Of course I'm only 2 episodes in so I could be wrong, but  after that, the most lewd thing in the two episodes was the Selkie's outfit, and she was just a non-speaking background extra sitting on the pier. I don't think this show is actually Echhi. 
But then I'm a 50 year old weeb so I don't really know where the line is anymore.
