Thorkell, freaking stop seducing me at every turn.

What can he do? He is charismatic in his own insane way, fun, strong, tall and stands out, very respectful towards those who have earned it, doesnt brood or when he does its in a way where people laugh and go "Well Thats Thorkell alright.. cant kill so he broods", commands a fucking armada.. he has literally all the characteristics to make a perfect main character. Thorfinn isnt bad and has developed his own character in different way but If Thorfinn is a star then Thorkell is the whole fucking galaxy is what im saying.

Wow, Canute. No wonder he didn't laugh at your joke.

 

He should've replied, "I may be named Ulf, but I am a Berserkr, so I only converse with bears; Go find a Ulfhedinn if you need a wolf-talker~"

In my heart Thorkell will forever remain the true main-character of this story!

Oh no! He's meeting all my standards!!

Page 11. Thorkell can geometry, huh?

As much as I like Thorkell he definitely is a person I wouldn't want to meet in RL, like ever.

 

Though mabye by my side when a zombie apocalypse just so happens would be okay ...

Man, its nice to see Canute again. His whole quest about searching paradise is one of my favorite.

 

You know, the late Jarl of Joms was Thorkell's brother (and Thorfinn's grandpa), wasn't he? Canute can be a real ass sometimes. Then again he probably knows that Thorkell wouldn't care and Thorfinn never even met grandpa.

Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free!

how he grab those tiny sticks off their scabbard remind me how big of a guy thorkell is.

Look at the happy viking img000017.png

This chapter actually made me reevaluate thorkell, despite him being constantly presented as a war-mongering muscle-head, he just shown himself to be quite astute in intrigue. Although I don't think he is purposely acting like a dolt as some sort of a camouflage to hide his true ambitions or something (That is, something akin to a wise fool), but certainly this adds a new facet to the character to watch out for. Or in fewer words "Good ol' Thorkell" ;p

 

This is how Thorkell was originally presented, though? During the long pursuit of Askeladd's band, he repeatedly showed that he was deeply aware of the political implications of his actions and proved very adept at strategizing his way through obstacles. Askeladd wasn't just outfought, he was outmaneuvered at every turn. Later Thorkell supported Askeladd's plot and Canute's plan, even to the point of realizing at the very end that Canute was the one who needed to act to avenge his dad. The crazy musclehead bit only appeared whenever he got bored and during the flashback with Thors. 

Good ol' Thorkell. ^^

Guys, styggtuff12 is mildly mentally retarded, don’t bother. He’s like that in every comment section I see him.

Anyway, for a second there the author sure had me fooled that Full Eyes could actually fight xD
 
What nonsense. If he had been a pacifist from the start then he wouldn’t be in this mess right now. It’s his violent past that lead to this and all previous misery that befell Thorfinn.

demut is back being a cunt as usual.

Lesson learnt: Only King can be King.

Oh sure, if he hadn't stepped out of his little home, nobody will be in this mess and the world have been in peace. It's a nice little story you have there. Sadly it's not this story.

Speaking of character development, what will be good if he finally learns that his extreme pacifist stance in every situation just means bad things for his friends in every situation.

no it isn't. its a suicidal and boring message. this takes place in the age of vikings and being a pacifist in that time is just idiotic and why would anyone want to follow that? who would think a guy living on a farm as a slave is fun to read about while of screen huge battles are happening?
rule 1 about writing characters: is this the most interesting part of this characters life and if not why are you here? why would you focus on him as a slave on a farm when there are far more interesting scenarios in his life?

 

but that's just your opinion, man

 

interesting or not is not an objective, logical, mathematical equation, man

I love this manga... reminds me so much of playing as a Viking in CK2.

Looks like Reigen found his soul mate in Full Eyes. 

 

Time for him to mentor the kid and turn him into Mob.

Dammit, I hate it when villains play smart.
