    Vinland Saga reading log

    Started reading it today. Currently at chapter 46, right after...Bjorn.

    It's kinda slow at the start, had trouble chewing through the flashback that hits right at the beginning.
    Now that it's picked up pace it's quite enjoyable.

    I like how controversial the characters are, Askeladd being the prime example with how he treats Thorfinn and everyone else.
    The prince really got struck with the death of his retainer Ragnar. For the better, might I add.
    Thorfinn makes for an interesting plot, he's basically an extremely good tool for Askeladd that's cutting deeper into his hand every time he uses it.

    So far I'm hooked, hopefully it continues like this or, better yet, gets even more interesting.

    oh boy, wait til you get into a certain arc, it'll question whether or not you like the series for the action or ...

    I personally enjoy this better than Berserk and Vagabond, simply because I see hope for it.

    Currently on 57. Do you mean Askeladd sacrificing himself or Thorfinn being a slave?

    Chapter 103, they met Gudrid and are preparing to head off. I did not expect this turn of events and plot in general.

    I'll finish it tomorrow, but man am I going to sleep with a sour taste in my mouth.

    @Void;

    Thorkell being battle deficient and than wrestling a bear.

    I don't like the idea of Thorfinn giving his life to Hild, but she's a nice addition to the team. Hopefully we get to see some more action.

    Currently on 125, I'll wrap it up now.

    still waiting on thoughts of the Farmland saga

    @Void;

    Oh, not vinland, farmland.
    Read it yesterday when I was slightly tipsy so I didn't even notice.

    Is there anything to be said? I kept hoping for a log to hit his head and bring back the beast he was, but he turned into a hippie.

    I'm really having trouble finding words for it..guess that means it's good, in a way. I'd prefer if he made the world learn of his peaceful ways...by force!

    guys that don't like how Thorfinn's a pacifist now and would rather have him regress as a character that solves things through brute force alone for muh badassery

    Well excuse me for expecting the main character of the battle manga I read to be a fighter.
    The fact that it came as a great shock with no warning doesn't make it any better.

    oh don't worry, he'll still fight, you'll just have to deal with the fact that he's not a loose cannon anymore

    pretty sure Askeladd's death and his sudden disappearance was a warning

    I'm 8 chapters away from the last one, he's not fighting.

    One chapter Ask died, the other Thorfinn was chewing tree roots. That's not how warning works.

    he's done some scrapping already, not to the death fights though since that's not allowed

    did you forget the mental breakdown?
