Is this just a shittier version of Berserk with vikings or does it get better?

But Berserk is shit

Vinland Saga is actually good.

Beserk is good. So Is Vinland Saga. OP is an enormous faggot for even comparing the two, as they're only similar in the fact that they're fairly bloody. The art isn't even similar aside from the fact that it's good and detailed.
>>
>Thorfinn left the farm
>Guts is still on the boat
Vinland Saga confirmed superior to Berserk
>>
>>123230793
Both are seinen manga that take place in the middle ages with a very similar setting, why am I not allowed to compare them?
>>
>>123230842
But Thorfinn is about to get on a boat.
>>
>>123230430
Chinese Berserk is more entertaining if you want Berserk stuff, but Chinese Chessmasters is better than all of them.
>>
>>123231227
He just got off the boat for some 1 vs 1 fight with a bear.

Don't worry they will meet up during the return trip at Raftel when Luffy gets there.

I prefer Vinland Saga because the story actually moves, and I like its realism more. Berserk is too hit and miss with its arcs, not to say it's anything near bad.

Depends if you like farming, fishing, sailing and traveling along with the initial raping and pillaging. It's gonna give you the whole Viking life experience.

Also pacifism.
>>
>>123230954

The settings are crazy different. If you use "middle earth" loosely I guess I see where you're coming from, but that's a stretch and a half anon. The fact that they're both seinen has nothing to do with anything. That's just the audience that the series are aimed at.

One is fantasy, one is historical. There's nothing similar between the MCs besides the fact that they're good at fighting. They're views on the world are totally different, and now that Thorfinn isn't all about revenge they have almost nothing in common.
>>
>>123232070
Berserk was barely fantasy prior to the Eclipse so I still see nothing wrong with comparing them since VS isn't exactly a medieval documentary.
>>
>>123230711
>without mentioning the boat

Why? It's a huge reason for it being shit.
>>
Either way I'm going to continue reading it in hopes that I'll enjoy it as much as Berserk.

>I'm a huge retard that never actually read Berserk but I love epic memes!

Are you joking? The Golden Age arc was barely fantasy but the Black Swordsman is pure fantasy.

Planetes overrated
Vinland Saga underrated.
>>
>>123232468

Because, if you took out the fact that the real time release pacing got screwed up for severals reasons, the boat isn't actually a bad plot device. Imagine if it still got released on a normal schedule, rather than what it is for various reasons.

Every story has a part where the protagonist, isolated from most worries, considers what he has done so far. If the protagonist himself doesn't do it, others do it for him. Avatar had it when aang got shot by lightning, harry potter had it in the final pensieve sequence in the books, and afterwards. George Orwell books tend to have it very close to the end, like in Animal Farm where every leader was indistinguishable, and in 1984 where he actually missed the lack of freedom.

after reading through vinland saga and then getting about 160+ chapters into kingdom, they are basically the same thing, swapping china for the norselands and vinland (murica').
>also dat farmland saga

>>123230430

Askeladd is best and thats all you need to know

>>123233586
Except both sides took radically different approaches. Thorfinn turns to escapism while Xin tries to help unify a country for peace. Both fail in the long run, but at least Qin managed to give lasting effects through the wall and road which benefited Han greatly. Canute's NSE crumbled into cookie bits the moment he died and nothing Thorfinn does amounts to anything. Xin becomes a duke on the other hand and his descendents range from generals to even establishing their own dynasty which lasts for hundreds of years.

Of course, he's viking Lu Bu.

Berserk is 3 times longer than Vinland Saga, and Thorfinn has 2 times more development than Guts

Big deal, Guts is 10 times the sailor.

You're right, only one has ever managed to wield Excalibur.

It's really not the same kind of story as Berserk. It's good but there are some pacing issues and too many sections where things happen off screen and leave you confused.
>>
>>123235890
What? How can you be confused?

Die in a fire, faggot.

I agree that Vinland Saga is underrated, though.

I wish MAPPA did a Vinland Saga anime that went until Askelad's death.
>>
>>123232413
Berserk had demons, evil spirits, sacrificial magic rites, and an elf since the beginning.

Vinland Saga does indeed give background information regarding the time and lives of the vikings, and is tries to be historically accurate.

Quit trying to compare the two.

Thorin is so cute.

Thanks, autocorrect.

I bet you're an anime only watcher, please end it already.

It's better simply because Thorfinn only spends a chapter on a boat.

>implying con artist saga won't be better
I can't wait to see Thorfinn try to sell those horns, he's too honest to con people.
