This one's weird, don't know how to feel about it.

I get what its going for but the 'dark humor' and the end did not work well with all. It was just mean and 'Robot Chicken' edgy and I mean that in a pretty insulting manner. Same with the characters but I could have respected and analyzed them but author went to far into the irrephrehensible category with the characters to understand everyone's unlikability (meaning that the main character using slurs and being involved with a highschool student).
