Yeah, I kind of think Askeladd and Canute will drive the story, but Thorfinn will become the focus in character development section. He will probably find out what made his father the greatest warrior... but somehow, even if I can see him becoming "the" warrior, I think that will not be what determines his later life. Because his only goal is to kill Askeladd, and there is nothing like becoming a warrior.
So maybe, much like his father, he will end up with a reputation... and sheep.
Yes, I agree with the both of you and something/someone(s) certainly will pull the trigger to make Thorfinn realize that there is more to it than retaliation. It's also quite amusing to see that Askeladd, the man who killed his father and the man he hates the most, to be more close to the "true warrior" than himself.
Well i understand that Thorfinn is an idiot, HH. the thing is, I'm kinda looking at his character as somewhat like Naruto... so.
Any ideas when the next chapter is going to come out?
Chapter 47 is already out in Japan: http://www.e-1day.jp/afternoon/magazine/
Now it's just wait for some dude to scan it.

Naruto is an idiot who believes he's not strong, and wants to be the best in strengh and in being a man.
Thorfinn is an idiot who believes he's strong, and looking forward to nothing but killing Askeladd. A monomaniac.
If a comparison could be made this the Naruto manga, let's take Sasuke. Thorfinn is closer to him, for now.
And it is why Thorfinn (and Sasuke, somehow) is interesting
But yeah, he will change, for sure. Canute and Askeladd are two people in his way that will show him the real way of a man. Thorfinn is just a kid, he will grow ^^
And I think he can grow to someone important. He's still Sigvaldi's grand-child (but in real history, the Jomsvikings are close to the end of their existance). He won't be better than Canute (impossible), but being one of his Jarls could be a great achievment. But it's just personnal assomptions.
He's probably closer to the idea of the true warrior. I agree, he's actually the most well-developped character for now.

Any chances for a non MU (also ES is bad) dl link ?
There used to be other links on RSF site but now evrything is on MU ,sometimes somethings appear on ddl, and sadlu heiji doesn't anwser any requests for other sites..
I would be thankfull for an alternative link .....
It would be even greater if someone scans the chapter of Historie in this same magazine.
I'm downloading it right now. When it be done if I won't be defeated by sleepness I will upload it on a alternative link for you.
Edit: Could a mediafire link do? http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=a...db6fb9a8902bda

Just read 47. Oh man, this series just might end up to be a classic ^^ Askeladd Just became my fav manga character. There is so much in VS, many layers. Drama, action, politics, deep and complex characters, humor and I feel like there might be some love going on later. I wonder how long the series will last. Anyway, I love it
That,s pretty normal in Yukimuras Mangas
Check out PLANETES if you haven't read it yet ( obviously by the same author )
I personally rate him very very high among all seinen writers
Love? To have love, we need some real women in the story. No one at all actually
Somewhere I feel deceived by the 47th. Maybe I waited it to much.
On the other hand, litt' Askeladd was really cute ^^
Well, Thorkell is an exeption, and can't deny that he isn't a good character ^^ Very funny
The romance thing is just a little hunch. Few hints point to that direction; scenes back at Island and that girlie whose family was killed by Askeladd & Co. Of course it just a guess, and the romance could be far in the future and play only a small part. Just a wild guess ^^
I liked 47th. Askeladd is a wicked character
If you plan in long term, then we can add Canute. From the real history, he should be married within two years.
Maybe the "gift" of Sweyn will be his fiancée
I would like to see again the girl from the devasted farm. But, doesn't she a bit to... big for Thorfinn, he looks like a squirel
I can easilly imagine Canute and Thorfinn discussing together about how much their respective girlfriends are annoying, as every girls are.
(Just in case, I'm actually a girl )
