/a/ I come from /tg/ and I have a beef with you guys,
WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU TELL ME VINLAND SAGA EXISTED HOLY SHIT. IT'S BERSERK WITH VIKINGS.

Askeladd is so fuckin cool
>>
>>115301217
Too bad he dies.

/a/ had a falling out with it when it became Harvest moon with vikings.

luckily it's recovering

"Why didn't you tell me" threads should be bannable
>>
>>115301217
The same reason we report recommendation threads. If you haven't watched or read enough anime and manga to already have your own opinions, we don't want you posting here.
>>
We have threads about it when chapters come out.
>>
>>115301217
There's a lot of manga out there that /tg/ would love.
Try Berserk and Claymore for a more DnD type vibe.
>>
>>115301468
I've been up to date on Berserk so far. The last chapter was unbelievably satisfying.

I've heard some good shit about Claymore but I was put off by the character designs, I'll
check it out.

Going from Farmland to Nice Boat
>>
I dunno. I've seen Vinland Saga compared to both Berserk and Vagabond and frankly it doesn't have shit on either.

It's not terrible, and I respect Yukimura (Planetes is good), but it's basically a dumb shonen fighting manga in some nice wrapping.
>>
Hope you enjoy farming by the second half

>>115301355
Bullshit, it was a small minority of "baby's first real seinen" kiddos who didn't understand that character development arcs are necessary and wanted endless mindless bloodshed without direction.

>Historical "good" guys pick the "bad" side because the real world fuck them over or because JESUSCHRIST IS THAT YOU AS THE DARK LORD?

Plus, there are actual Elf Rape Towers™

That sounds dumb

If Shinji ever told his dad to fuck off, and that he'll make a BETTER country for all the people he ever fucked over to live in peace because you suck right now, doesn't matter the personal or monetary cost, then yeah, he is.

>>115301217
It's farmland saga now.
>>
>>115304636

Problem with the farming arc was it's a series that updates once a month. I just started back up and caught up and it was perfectly fine. But for the people reading regularly, it probably took, what a year? More? It must have been awful.
>>
>>115305597
Oh don't worry Anon farmland saga is finally over.

They just got on a boat to take a short trip.
>>
>>115305989
Then it will really become Berserk with Vikings.

>>115306159
Sadly no, read how he end his journey.

We are almost there.

But if author stray too far away from real history and prolong his journey it won't be "Loosely based" again. And name "Thorfinn" is no longer fit.

They're off the farm now though, thank Oden

They might run into Guts' ship while they're out at sea though
>>
>>115309646

They will run into new continent and set up another farm
The ride never ends
>>
How long until they find Vinland and we can get back to farming?
>>
Inb4 farmland saga becomes 'are they still off the boat/namek' saga
>>
I didn't mind the farming but I dunno how they plan to keep the story's momentum going with the pacifist angle. Either he never fucks someone up again and it gets painfully boring (I don't need constant bloodshed, but he still needs to seem like a badass sometimes, he's a fucking viking), or he does fuck someone up and looks like he's wishy washy about his principles. It feels too soon into the story.
>>
>>115307042
That video seems to miss the point completely. I don't think you're supposed to take the picture as being hostile edgy metal garbage.

More like some kind of swag rap star nigger.
>>
>>115310528
That's the feeling I have of the series aswell.

I really like that he's going all out with his ideals but at the same time I really wanted him to teach some of those punks at the farm a lesson. It's still nice when he dodges all of the enemies blows like that chain guy.
>>
>>115310528
Yukimura might do a better job than expected. I was pleasantly surprised how he handled Thorfinns segment at Canutes camp.
>>
It's discussed here regularly.
>>
>>115302622
This one panel made the whole farmland arc worth it. Seriously, this is the most satisfying character development I've seen in manga ever.

The slave arc was really shit till around the end.
>>
>>115310528
Same feelings. I don't need it like the beginning where it was constant war and death. But if hes never a badass again and it's just farming it's going to get real boring.

And the way things are going, it's going to be boring for awhile.

Finally, jesus. I knew she was going to become his waifu the first chapter they introduced her.

You are a child in love with a fantasy, not reality. Vikings were just people. People that needed to shelter, farm and eat like all the rest.

Because "underaged" and "shit taste" are easy deflections that require no thought.
