    Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    A little surprising but MangaStream has released chapter 68. Read, discuss, and enjoy, but remember don't spoil those who don't want to be spoiled outside of this thread for at least 48 hours, and behave like the good members you are.

    hahah I was just about to start a thread on this. Pretty shocked they picked it up myself.

    Although, I must say that ending was entirely too predictable.

    Looks like Vinland Saga is finally starting to pick up again. I am once more interested in the chapters.

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    Yeah Yukimura did some obvious foreshadowing at the beginning so we knew those servants were up to no good. But it was bound to happen anyway.

    I really enjoyed this chapter even more than the last few. The part that made this chapter great to me was one simple quote which, in my opinion, sums up this entire arc:

    "Just keep on learning. Little by little...If you're empty, then you can take in anything. If you want to be reborn, then it's in your best interest to become empty." - Great Master

    It's just so refreshing that Thorfinn has finally realized his faults and how he can be reborn as a person. He's growing up right in front of our eyes

    But on the note that MangaStream picked up the series, I'm surprised like I mentioned earlier but more glad than anything. Hox does a great job but this will spread Vinland Saga to the masses. MangaStream is one of the most popular scan groups and them working on this will introduce the series to hundreds more readers. While browsing their forums I saw comments like "O this series looks interesting. I think I'll pick it up." And I just got a big smile on my face

    What's cool is the flashback of Thorfin being told to turn into a great warrior, and the last page. You know those two combined will lead him back to the warriors way.

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    i really like this chapter, i wonder what it is thorfin har forgotten. i agree he will turn back to the warriors way, but i think that this time he will fight for his own cause and will not be blindly killing for someone else. thorfin will get back his spark when he remembers what he has forgotten.

    Well I just read my first chapter of vinland saga and I'm hooked.

    That quote, 'if your empty you can be filled with anything', is great. Seems like a strong, dramatic manga, I'm gonna read the whole thing.

    I recommend you do! It's one of my favorite mangas. It's not always action packed like a shounen manga, but as long as you don't mind serene periods for character development, it is excellent.

    I'm glad you like it And if you like this portion of the manga, it should be easy for you to enjoy the earlier parts as well as this the current part is the part that gets the most complaints.

    And once you catch up, make sure you join in discussing it here

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    Definitly guys, ill read up and start discussing.

    I cam tell that this is a really slow part for the plot and I can tell that the earlier parts have battle and I'm sure that's awesome, looking forward to it.

    What I really like is the character interaction. It's realistic and has really well done dramatic dialogue. The character psychology looks really well done to, I always look for that in a manga.

    Agreed babo, its one of the transitions chapters and its obvious something is coming. Although the chapter was all talk, but I liked it. Thorfinn is slowly changing. I think he lacked rationale whenever he faced Askelad.

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    I don't really understand what Thorfinn's dream actually mean. I thought it was from his guilt or something, but I definitely wrong. What is the climbing and hands mean anyway? And why he's calling his father and Askelad's name?
    The servants really did a stupid things. Do they really think that they won't be found out? And destroying the field that is the master's property, not a bright thing to do. Probably it's normal to have the discrimination attitude in that age and time, but isn't there already a slave-turned-free like Patil?
    Also, do people in northern hemisphere still do their field in winter? I thought people can't farm in winter, I guess I'm wrong.
    I like the part where Thorfinn said he's empty and the background is all white. Also the great master words.

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    Yeah his dream is still very confusing to me as well. The climbing a mountain and falling could represent far too many things. But the calling of his dad's and Askelad's names could very well be from guilt. Guilt of not saving his dad (even though he couldn't have done anything) and guilt of spending his youth trying to get revenge on a man who virtually treated him like a son (even though at times it didn't appear that way).

    Re: Vinland Saga 68 Discussion/69 Predictions

    I was really wondering where he was going with this book much less the chapter after finding out Thorfinn was enslaved after that fight. But now reading this chapter, it's finally putting my doubts to rest. The book has become interesting again, is it just me or does everyone want to see some killing again.
