Call me a troll. Call me a hater. I just gotta get this out of my system.
So you guys think that Vinland Saga is the shit, right? Well, then you need hear me out on this. I decided to check it out since I usually at least take a look at everything that gets hyped in /a/. I kind of trust in you, you know. Anyways, I was expecting a good historical manga with decent characters and innovative plot development. What the fuck? This is nothing but below average shonen with a bit improved art. Why is this piece of crap getting all the attention? Honestly. I checked Naruto out like years ago and I didn't like it. Yes, whether you like it or not this just another Naruto all over again. I've grown out of it, man. The problem with you guys is that tend you accept this shitty manga with open hearts and yet you spit on stuff like Naruto. I mean, come on where is the elitism? Elitism is not when you take shit out of it's context like that and throw a fuckfest of hyping. Elitism is when you actually know what is what and have an strict opinion based on you vastly superiour knowledge. This isn't fucking knowledge. No, this is plain utter retardness. If you hate Naruto then you _do not_ fucking accept crappy jutsu fighting shonen at all. Vikings, Ninjas, UFOs, whatever the setting is does not matter. Jutsu fighting shonen = shit, okay? That's the bottomline. Vinland Saga is nothing but generic fighting manga with dumb charas with stupid motives, predictable plot, stupid story, filled fucking pointless ninja esque fighting. You should be ashamed for reading such retarded crap. Bishie king was acceptable, though.
Vinland Saga = Naruto with vikings.
I just have a massive hardon for historical fiction.
Vinland saga has good characters, is a good depiction of fantasy vikings and the weapons and armor are accurate. It's a good manga. Fuck off.
It's manly, and it has vikings.
OH WHAT? Would you like us to watch something deep and intelligent like Clannad?
SPIT YOUR POSTS WITH BLOOD AND THUNDER
WHEN YOU SEE THE GREEN TROLL
HEADS WILL ROLL
HEAR HIM ROAR
tl;dr, walltext, Naruto references, Vinland Saga bashing, etc.
I like Vinland Saga.
Name one example of Jutsu fighting in Vinland Saga.
'Lo, there do I see my father. 'Lo, there do I see...
My mother, and my sisters, and my brothers.
'Lo, there do I see...
The line of my people...
Back to the beginning.
'Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them.
In the halls of Valhalla...
Where the brave...
All fights generally. But hey it's not jutsu as long as they use swords, right?
Every Thors fight. Please, "A true Warrior needs no blade."? What is this, muppet babies?
Hail to the King, baby.
A true warrior doesn't need a blade. A true warrior fights with his heart.
wall of text.
You don't actually have to know more to be an elitist, you just have to think you know more. Take white supremacists, for example.
They HACK and SLASH people to bits. Show me the jutsu.
Lol, I saw your angry answer earlier in some other thread. Was better when you didn't put much thought into it, now you're clearly trying to troll.
Also, >>10278365 is correct.
Accurate depiction of the OP from a page of the manga. I didn't even have to shoop it. That's how awesome this manga is.
Vinland saga doesn't have jutsus... It has awesome art, and let's face it, rape. It's sort of like Berserk - monsters + history. Let's face it, epicness is guaranteed if you can do gorgeous non generic art, and the story/characters don't suck terribly.
Also, it's not the jutsus that make Naruto suck. Kenshin also has techniques, and most of us would agree that Kenshin is the shit.
Gomu gomu no jutsu fighting is annoying as shit. Vinland Saga's avoiding it is one of its best attributes.
yeah, well, that's like, your opinion, man.
Lol no, just no. The charas have absolutely no depth except their stupid made up motives.
No realism in that deparment, what so ever. No realism when it comes to the viking stuff, either. More like romatised gaijin perpsctive. Read more history. The stereotypes aren' accurate. The plot of the whole thing is loosely based on actual events but the focus in on fighting scenes that gets tiresome after first chapter. Shitty manga is shitty.
Let's by call it the Shitland Sage from now on.
vinland has amazing art. deal with it, its not some low budget shit like ONE PIECE LOL XDDD
You see, /a/ likes its Hunter X Hunter in a more mature art format, so they can brag about how awesome they are for reading "mature manga."
I agree with you wholeheartedly,and the same thing goes for Berserk.
And all you had to do was to press "hide thread" -button when those pesky Horse Punch threads came.
