Ratings & Reviews
It's all so different...
by Jachyra -
Some big changes happened at the end of the last volume, and this volume of Vinland Saga feels like a different story entirely. Thorfinn's life and personality are completely different. He's no longer consumed by hatred and regularly bathed in blood. While Thorfinn has grown into a kinder and wiser person, he's also much less interesting, in my opinion. I miss the fierce, remorseless kid who took crazy risks and kicked butt. At the same time, it's nice to see him growing into the kind of man Thors hopef he would be.
