Why are "adventurer guilds" in fantasy anime and manga so nonsensical?

>Any random dumbfuck can walk off the streets and just sign up, even a ten year old child
>Unlike literally every other profession's guild, there is no such thing as an adventurer apprenticeship so you're just left to stumble around and figure it out
>In fact the guild does not provide new adventurers with anything even resembling training, equipment, supplies, or insurance
>So really the membership fees are just going to pad the pockets of the management

>Instead of focusing on their primary purpose (hunting monsters) they do random shit like putting up shelves, finding lost cats, gathering twenty verdant grasses, forging swords, and delivering packages
>Which probably infringes on other guilds' trades too
>It's not even adventuring, it's the bloody volunteer fire department/neighborhood watch/courier service/pet finder/toilet cleaner/hunter-gatherer/inane shit doer all rolled into one, you're basically a handyman

>Although the trade is so diverse, the jobs you are given are regulated only by rank from F to A, with no subclassification
>Which means jobs where you kill goblins are lumped in with jobs where you put up shelves even though they demand totally different skillsets
>Therefore as an average client who wants a hole in the roof fixed or a package to be delivered you have no way of guaranteeing that the adventurer who takes up your request can actually do it properly, unlike if you hired a professional

>The Guild is a monopoly employer so you have no control over your commission and the cut they take of your commission
>So you have to pay membership fees to the guild using money paid to you by the client, which the guild has already taken a cut of
>For the privilege of being allowed to have the guild act as the middleman between you and the client

I mean, what the fuck?

The adventurer guild is a meme holdover from JRPGs where it serves as a convenient mission hub. It's used so the writer doesn't have to think about how a monster hunting economy works.
Play more videogames.

What kind of a adventurer guild it is completely depends on the series. Grimgar for example did offer training for a single job, the rest the characters would have had to pay for themselves. Also I haven't seen many works where adventurer guild would ever do forging swords or stuffing shelves. As for the package delivery and gather shit, it's because adventurer guilds are basically people armed to teeth to fight against monsters, and since other guilds don't have to learn how to fight or go out themselves since they can send suicidal kids out in the field to do their dirty job, the adventurers would obviously get tasks like that.

I need some hot opinions on this

I genuinely can't tell if I just saw a masterpiece, or just a cheesy shitshow

I've never been this confused about whether I liked something

Big emotions. Makes you feel bigly.

Don't gotta be deep if it succeeds at exactly what it was going for.
Episode 1 looked so nice that I dropped it right away when it first came out so I could wait for the BD rips.

But then I never picked it back up.

According to /a/, I didn't miss anything worthwhile.
It's a very pretty show, both visually and with its classical music. The story is predictable, but if it makes you feel things then it did its job. Best not to blow it out of proportion by calling it a masterpiece.

It was good.

Why is Shirou so fucking retarded? I mean, if he wasn't so dumb the whole war would be much easier for him. Also, his fast increasing magic abilities are bullshit and don't make any sense but I still enjoyed watching this show. So, what should I watch/play next? I've already watched Zero and want to know if the series gets better or worse after Stay Night and if the original VN is better than its adaptation.

Read the fucking VN

Damn. This is even better the second time you watch it. 5 minutes into the first episode and I'm already breaking.

Can you explain this bullshit to me┬┐?

Epitaph lets him see 10 seconds into the future. King Crimson can "erase time" within those 10 seconds. Anything that wouldve harmed diavolo doesnt affect him, but all other effects happen as they would have.
it just works :^)

serious note, think of it as this way. You're going to get hit by a bullet.

There are 3 points in time:
>the moment where the bullet leaves the gun
>the moment where the bullet hits you
>the moment where the bullet leaves you

King Crimson is capable of erasing time, erasing the moment where you got hit by the bullet.

Meaning the bullet goes through you, but you dont get hit, because the moment in time where the bullet was supposed to hit you never happened.

Oooooor im completely wrong and im making a fool out of myself.
It just werks

Not only does /a/ generally use the term wrong, but I don't see why they seem to thinkevery character has to make some kind of change throughout a series for them to be good.
I think OP is trying to imply that characters should remain flat lest the show become DEEP and pseudo-intellectual fodder.
