Canute vs. Throfinn - do you see story progressing towards this front? Perhaps not physically but as characters.

Canute is King. Emperor really. Thorfinn is a peasant. A slave. A nobody.
I actually rather like the idea of the disconnect but yet they affect each other's world by their actions.
They should only communicate via underlings.
that's an interesting take on it, mrsticky. That they will never meet again, and that there will be only a disconnect. That could be one way of writing the story. Let's see how the mangaka will play it out.
Similar to Luffy and his dad who never met (at this time) but their names are ringing across the seas, carving their own legends. heh.
He's thinking of the plot progressing as history did and what was written in the actual Vinland Saga. If there isn't a big divergence in the story from the history, then he's probably right. Who knows though.
nothing stupid happens like Thorfinn killing Canute. And Thorfinn BETTER sail to the Vinland!
I mean it's called VINLAND saga for goodness sake!
And it's not like there aren't hints throughout the story that this will happen.
The big question for me...
Will Einar go to the Vinland? I hope he does! Best character in the series!

Einar is a good character, I wouldn't tag him with "best". He's certainly a departure from the bad-ass warriors we were used to.
I don't have any doubt VINLAND will come to Vinland Saga, but I'm most interested in how that will come about. If Thorfinn and Canute's stories remain completely separate, it will be interesting to see how they intertwine.
But he's got spirit! He's one of the most heroic characters since Thors the Troll and I think Einar is even more interesting.
Einar respects the wheat. That is why he is the best.
It should be interesting to see what comes of the impeding attack on Ketil's farm.
and one thing I'm especially interested in is...
When and How will Thorfinn meet Gudrid
for the sake of not spoiling I won't say who she is. But she will be a rather important character to the story...If it follows history.
Thorfinn meets Gudrid? I thought she was an acquaintance of Lief? Or related to him through marriage?
Ah, I wasn't aware she had that much story in the Vinland Sagas.
Should be interesting considering where she is in the world.
And of course this magnificent news have to appear here! Because we are the ones who're going to buy this! Let's go rape and plunder somewhere! Open the barrels with mead, sharpen your swords, daggers and axes, men! Take your bows and arrows, brethren! Because just now the long one-year-wait for the first volume begins! We have to lead battle with our patience, some may fall but we'll meet behind the gates of Valhalla!
