Vinland Saga, a story that brings back epic to the word Vikings.
With their savage ways and the art of the manga-ka behind "Planetes" this Viking story is one of the best mangas out there atm, there is nothing weak about this, civilians are butchered, executed, raped and humiliated.
The story concentrates around the life of Thorfinn, a young viking who was born in iceland. One day as a young boy a whole fleet of Jomsvikings come to his village and he finds out his father was one of the greatest vikings to ever walk the earth, but he deserted and acted as if he was dead and as a rule of the Jomsvikings, Deserters are to die, but as a compromise if Thorfinns father, Thors agrees to fight for the Danish king once more he will forget that it ever happened. Thors agreed.
As he sails of from Iceland Thorfinn has snuck aboard and they cannot turn back, but Thors plans to drop him off just before he reaches the battle to have him sent back to Iceland.
As they close in on the island they fall into a trap set up by one of the Jomsvikings who disagreed with the kings decision to reinstate Thors and Thorfinn is taken hostage, as a result Thors dies. Thorfinn swears revenge and ends up being in the same crew as the man who killed his father and as a reward for doing jobs for him, he gets a duel with the man who killed his father each time, Askeladd in hopes of killing him in a duel one day.

I fully expect Arneis's husband to go sane again, the farmer dude to die and Thorfinn to lead a new band with with his farm buddy, Arneis's husband, the farmer's son (the proper strong one) with the that pathetic weakling there as a source of jokes. It's all heading that way.
The question is whether this'll happen before I'm 50. Seems like it won't.
...... Now I actually have to start posting here again to keep the lead... Tazmo you moneygrubbling bitch!
Wheat Saga Part 1.
If I ever become a director I will make VS a movie...
You'll need lots of wheat for that movie.
Are they still on that farm? I stopped reading around that time, just so I could read it in chunks when the arc was done. But if it's still going...-_-
Is it just me or is the waiting for new chapter taking forever sometimes? I love Vinland Saga but sometimes it feels like Berserk when it comes to relase schedule.
I was thinking only of doing part 1
The ending will be open for interpretation with Thorfinn standing in front of a wheatland...
I really don't like the way the conversation is going in this thread. Seems like I got myself involved with another Berserk... *sigh*
You can't handle the wheat.
I want to see Thorfinn kick ass again. I don't like peaceful thorfinn much. The author needs to explain how he changed so much
It's monthly so...
^Its just that after christmas (or sometimes before) it seems that a new chapter is released every other month.
Whilst I hate Togashi's laziness, at least when he works he focuses on the story. I don't see the point of amazing art if it hinders the progress of the story.
I also don't see the problem with this wheat arc. It's a very interesting way to develop characters as opposed to the generic shock moment/angst/ inner struggle main characters go through.
Chapter 82 is out
He bit his throat off!
That was manly as fuck , could go swimming with the sharks at this moment
That shit was too beastly. Hopefully she won't betray her husband, as he did do all in his power to reach her and her son. It would also not be in their best interests if both parents perished...
Well that was short
Anyway, Gardar is a fucking beast
Gardar is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters.
Hopefully he won't die soon. :/
I have a feeling Arneis will betray him since she's carrying Ketil's baby , dumb bitch
It's a pretty good possibility but I'm hoping that she'll free him in the heat of the moment.
I hope he does escape too since Thorgill vs Gardar needs to happen
Finally, shit happens.
He's a lose cannon, someone is bound to pull the plug on him soon, I just hope he has an epic fight before that happens, I want more neck chomping.
Holy shit Gardar .
Well, that was cool
Gardar is one BAMF
inb4 Thorfinn protects them.
