>I nearly cried when they pulled the "hit weak spot for massive damage stunt
So, is this Berserk 2.0? Should I read it then?
Sorta, except without the supernatural stuff.
They have a lot in common. If you like one, you'll like the other, guaranteed.
What I don't get is how a 7 foot tall man's chin is easier to injure than his elbows or heels.
Ok, thanks, downloading then...
Glass chin, boxers have it too. It's just one of those things, doesn't matter how strong you are.
Never been hit by a strong hook to the chin, huh?
BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.
ever had a good punch to your chin? doesn't matter what your state of mind is or how strong you are, if it connects the right way you'll go down.
bout time the poor guy got his chance to be badass
I seriously want to see Thorkell fight Black Swordsman Guts (pre Berserk armor, pic related)
where's mai shota fairy
No I'm saying how is it EASIER to reach than his other exposed vital points? I would think it would be harder because he's so damed tall.
HE HAD NO WEAPON
He had to knock him down first, then attack. Chin does much more damage than the other options.
The arm cannon would decide the fight.
>>10200953 How's this for you?
I doubt he'd even have to use it.
But it would still be an awesome fight.
No he's the moeGAR leader, like Griffith.
No nude shotas, only young Thorfin. Actually there's zero nudity in VS.
Where are his other exposed vital points, that Thorfinn can get in the miniscule amount of time that the sun flash blinded Thorkell?
Heart is covered in chain mail, along with the rest of his vital organs. Taking out a tendon would work, but Thorkell would still have a working arm at worst, and then bye bye Thorfinn.
His neck is just as high as his chin, and in fact blocked by that chin.
Groin, probably would not be enough to incapacitate someone like him.
Power levels of the series are kinda different.
I'd say Thorkell vs pre-eclipse Guts would be a fair fight.
And that was when he still had his dagger.
There is no fair fight so I don't care. I just wanna Thorkell get his ass kicked.
I mean Guts was defeating men like Thorkell while he was Thorfinn's age, but with even less effort.
Yes, let's pit Goku vs Kenshin and see who wins!
That's obviously much more of a stretch.
Guts post-Eclipse fought men like Thorkell everyday just for fun. It's not like he doesn't do that stuff anyway.
Do we really have direct points of comparison? Guts was certainly defeating people who seemed kind of like Thorkell (feared, large, with big kill counts). But then again, in Vinland saga, normal armor seems to work most of the time, even against protagonists.
They were men who had Thorkell's build, not men who had his experience and prowess in battle. They come from two seperate series, so you have no way of knowing what they would be like when compared.
Let's say we don't care either way and enjoy both, and we don't have to resort to childish "who would win" hypotheses, okay?
but only with Thorfinn unarmed Thorkell would down his guard enough to hit his weak point
Remember the battle on the london bridge, Thorfinn cannot reach his vitals spots
Exactly. Thorkell's chin was the only vital point he could feasibly reach AND do critical damage to with no weapon in hand. Once Thorkell was down, he could get to Thorkell's eyes.
I don't think there's anyone who would think Guts would lose even if Thorkell was superior to the enemies he's met before.
But it's true, it doesn't matter, it's just the kind of stop I contemplate too much. Hell, I don't even know why they would fight or what setting. I'd just be happy to hear a conversation between them.
Attack weak point does not matter. Because it led to this awesome scene.
I think I'm going to start using the word Whore-sons in everyday language now.
It's just whoreson, like the son of a whore, no hyphen.
