So I just caught up on this and I'm wondering, what was everyone bitching about? Yeah the tone shifted but it was obvious from Thors' example at the start that it was gonna happen and the transition was really good, and you made it sound like the action completely dissapeared. There were still a few decent fights in the slave arc, and Thorfinn's speech to the royal guard was awesome. Sure, I'm uneasy that it's entering a boat arc and Thorfinn having a Prince Valiant haircut looks really stupid, but that's about it.

Too many shounenfags. Just ignore them if you disagree. Farming saga was best.
>>
It was a good change a pace, and it showed him maturing as best he could and move on. Ugh, next chapter...

That happenes when bunch of babies start reading manga for mature men such as ourselves.

Prologue - 10/10
Slave Arc - 10/10
Merchant Arc - ?/10 (So far it's - inconceivably hilarious/10)
>>
>>120303499
How different do you think he would've been if he actually managed to kill Askellad?
>>
>>120303545
I still find it wierd that the first arc, which took 5 years, is called the prologue. Especially since it had its own prologue.
>>
>>120303598
All 3 arcs are in fact different parts of the prologue before Vinland arc. We're in the third part of the prologue now.
>>
>>120303731
That's even wierder. It's been 10 years and it's still the prologue. Then again that makes sense considering they just decided to go to Vinland less than 2 volumes ago. So if the prologue is over 100 chapters how long will the actual Vinland part be?
>>
Anybody have any idea of how long it is going to be? I dont want to pick it up if I have to wait 15 years for a conclusion

>>120303893
Hope you're not reading Berserk then.

Like most people reading Berserk I'm assuming he's accepted that there will be no conclusion. The boat was the final boss, and it won.

So is it just me or does everyone this guy draws have massive ears? I didn't notice because of Thorfinn's hair at the beggining but after the slave arc I couldn't stop noticing.

> Anybody have any idea of how long it is going to be?
Yukimura said many times already (on conventions, in interview and even on his twitter) that Vinland Saga will be around 25 volumes long. "A little more than 5000 pages." First time he said that was when 2nd volume came out and he has been saying the same thing since (last was around time when 13th volume was released) so I assume he has a definite plan. It may not be exactly 25 volumes but it will most likely be very close to that.
>>
>>120304319
I'm not seeing anything wierd there other than the ears.
>>
>>120304788
So if we assume that this arc is still prologue that means the prologue will be longer than the actual Vinland part of the story.

Maybe not the best example. He generally drew Fee well, but Tanabe often looked just a little bit off. It doesn't even slightly detract from Planetes as just about the height of the medium, though. I do prefer her anime redesign, plus the pacing changes make it work better as a single piece.

Look, mate, this isn't "prologue" anymore. It's just what the anon said was a joke. After the "End of the Prologue" the story already shifted its goal towards Vinland, first Thorfinn had to find himself and set his hopes to Vinland, now he's raising funds for travel to Vinland and after that he will be preparing the crew and then will the actual voyage to Vinland come.

It is already about Vinland. It was called "End of the Prologue" to clearly indicate that the focus and overall tone will shift and that now Vinland will become an actual goal.

i bet that Thorfinn tells his future wifes previous would-be husband that that baby is hers

Really love new part so far, and 112 seem to be a fun chapter.

I have no problem with tone shifts and enjoyed farmland saga, but I have no idea how my interest in the series can be sustained with a pacifist MC. And presumably most fans interest, considering most people enjoyed the badass viking aspect.

I see a contradiction here.
>>
>>120305733
There's a difference between a tone shift and completely changing the plot focus and characterization, it's a bit extreme, particularly when the character is written into a corner by their determination to act in a certain way.
>>
>>120306118
But you've enjoyed Farmland Saga, I can't see why you won't enjoy Merchland Saga.

Bad news everyone. If this series keeps going on the historical plotline it is... thorfinn gets a pretty BAD END.

Where have you even read this? First he said that he wants to cathc up with Vinland Saga and Historie by the end of December, that didn't happen so he said he will work on that after finishing Chinggis Khan which he did early January and after that he said he will spent the rest of January on his real life.

You try reading that fucking farmland arc at 1 chapter every 1-2 months and see how much you like it. It's good when you binge-read, though.
>>
>>120306692
The best part is anyone who had a working brain would understand that unless Yukimura retcons this Gary Stu style Thorfinn will eventually realize his pacifism is naive and stupid, ultimately fruitless as well.

I almost think Yukimura is just setting all this shit up for a massive tragedy. And I don't mean just getting deported from Canada. I mean Thorfinn is gonna be on his death bed, and hear news about how after Canute died his sons weren't remotely as capable and fucked everything up, just like how Thorfinn as a kid fucked everything up because his dad chose to focus on gud deeds instead of playing the long term game, making his utopia fleeting. And then Canute will haunt his dreams Sven style about WRY DIDN'T YOU HELP ME, WHAT DID YOU ACHIEVE ALONE?

But then he wakes up from his dream and sees his kids and grand kids gathered around, and dies in peace with a smile. Oh and add in Thors going Mufasa.

How come that there are so many mangas surrounding medieval-ish (pseudo-)European stuff? People say that the Japanese are very xenophobic, but I have a hard time believing it when a show like Attack on Titan (heavily German-inspired setting with the premise being that ALL Asians except one (half) has been exterminated) becomes the biggest thing of this half-decade.

The manga industry is big. There's all sorts of genres and stories, and the creative artists are hardly xenophobic (though they do misunderstand foreign cultures) and want to do fresh stuff.
>>
>>120309721
Have you never watched Gundam? Almost none of that shit is Japanese. The original features a Canadian versus Hitler's ideal Aryan. It takes forever before a Japanese becomes an MC, and by 2010 or some shit even a mudslime became MC.

I'm guessing he'd still become an empty shell. The Farmland Saga was inevitable.
>>
>>120309939
Hard to say, unlike most people who end up empty shells Thorfinn had a family and home to go back to. It's probably 50/50, but I think Thorfinn would get over it a lot faster. He might not be as nice a guy though, and still be edgy.

I'm not sure why so many people who dislike pacifism get worked up about Thorfinn's change. If anything, they should be even more excited at how it'll ultimately achieve little in the long run. Even in Planetes, Tanabe's idealism didn't just magically solve all the real-world problems. It gave some characters hope, but humanity was still more or less stuck in the problems they created for themselves.

>>120310650

Well, for one of them it kind of did.
I'm glad this was changed in the anime, it felt far too dramatic (for lack of a better word) for what the manga was aiming for.

It's because many people dislike train wrecks, especially ones without any over the top hilarity. On top of this, Vinland is a monthly, and a historical monthly on top of that. So it's a very slow motion train wreck that you can see coming from miles away, with almost no promise of a clever twist or whatever to make it interesting due to trying to stay 'grounded' unless it's to show off viking manliness or Thorfinn's Kung Fu. At least when it was the prologue, it was consistent. Farmland Saga is what Green Blood would have been if they spent 20 chapters at the farm with the old lady and then moved to Canada only to get mugged by natives instead of killing their dad.
