Okay the new chapter is out.. What do you guys think?
While reading the chapter I actually thought Canute wouldn't recognize Thorfinn because his face was beaten to a pulp but surprisingly he did. And, not only faintly, but he really did recognize him and remember all that they've been through.
I didn't think Einar would have that much of guts to talk back to Canute as well. He was pretty brave when he had the audience.
But Canute is challenging Thorfinn to kill him or lose the farm. What could be Thorfinn's decision?
It was intense and good. I like how they spoke openly & sorta intimately with each other putting their cards on the table. I would be heading back to the boat around the end of this ch. What more can be done at this time...
Canute represents everything Einar hates so I'm not too surprised at his courage, he has also been through a lot. This was a very tense chapter, Canute obviously has delusions of grandeur considering his words and actions thusfar. His mantra seems to be any means to achieve his desired end weather poisoning his own brother and other kings/nobles, robbing the property of the innocent, etc. What I suspect Thorfinn will do is challenge Canute to a duel, and after a tough battle instead of killing Canute sparing him on the condition that he leave the farm alone. I can't see Thorfinn just walking away at this point.
But if that duel does happen, and what you say happens, the manga will come to an end, no?
That's not possible since Canute's arm broke.
No Thorfinn won't challenge him. I have a feeling he will ask to take the remainder with him.
That is indeed an interesting theory! "You can have the farm, I can have the people" kinda thing? that would be awesome. So that he already has followers, and all they'd need is land to establish a new village or some sort.
Doesnt make sense, since most of the workers weren't slaves, there wasn't too many of em to begin with, and 2 of 3 the most important ones have became free, 3rd died, on top of that Canute doesnt really care about the ppl/workers, as We could have seen ( look again at all the corpses ...), He needs money and land.

I've been following mangahelpers for a while but since I finally decided to join it I guess I'll start with Vinland saga lol.I picked a good time to read vinland saga and now that I'm caught up with it I'm glad I don't have to wait every month while he's still in the farm
anyway I've read the raws for 98 things are looking interesting
welcome to the forums, renders!
btw how many days does i usually take vinland saga to be translated after the raw?
How brilliant! This chapter made me so emotional. I hope everybody makes it!
What an ending to the farmland arc. I really love the extremes between humor and death in this ch.
