Well, tallking about "blunt" weapon, I'm more about how weighty they are at the top, not if they are spiked, flat or lump (they want to add sth to deal extra damage of course). With enough weight, breaking a horse leg or skull wouldnt be much of a trouble. A line of spearmen with shields is best for stopping a charge, I know.

That haku look-alike tho

Man he got cockblocked hard, like all of us, fight fucking when!?

Spoiler

Anyway, since our MC uses fists and he won't die, fists are the best weapon of war!

 

Blunt weapons are good for anti-horse? I thought it was spears/pikes - for their reach - or bills/halberds - for their ability to cut the relatively skinny horse legs. Also, while it is correct that the hammer is probably anti-love - chicks dig swords and probably will shun those hammer wielding dwarves - I think you rather meant anti-armor.

That and, historically, blunt weapons is a lie... Have you seen a mace from the medieval era? It is covered with spikes and wedges. Even hammers used for wars are wedged on the impact surface, that and documents show warhammers are more commonly used with its beaked side rather than with the "flat" side.

Maybe that is a not-so-subtle hint that hammers (especially such ludicrously large ones) usually suck as weapons of war :P

A bit disappointed... I would have wanted to see a little bit of Vagn's fight at least. Finally a viking who uses a hammer as a weapon, AAAAND he's gone.

can't go around hoping to solve real problems in an era of effin vikings without getting your hands dirty.

Tell that to all the non-violent revolutionaries and reformists throughout history. And if you are the minority anyway then violence will help you even less than it already does and only serve to aggravate the situation. Look at the Kurds in Turkey. Their terrorism might be understandable but it does jackshit to further their goals. All it does is give their oppressors something to use as an excuse. At least the way of non-violence allows you to shame your enemies by undeniably demonstrating their wickedness. If you yourself become a murderer then your previous moral high ground as the victim of undeserved violence begins to seriously crumble ...

And... The Harem Groweth~

 

Spoiler

If nothing else we know for sure that he learned how to GET punched by fists during that time :B

Oh and Propodia, ...

Spoiler

Getting punched correctly is marial art too. :D Remember how goku in DB trained his fists through farming? :)

Just to notice: For those who say "rapist got less punished by law so rape is a lesser crime", that logic may only applied in your countries. See the following for reference:

I can't wait for Thorkell throw his rage on that gay assassin.

I laughed when Thorfinn just run away

 

Assassin guy: Hey look here I just killed one of your acquintan-

Thofinn: Lol byyeee

 

 

Running away is the better part of valor.

 

The other half is not getting shot in the back.

would be funny if after all this setup for 'you leave me no other choice but to crush you' he ends up getting crushed himself. it worked with his dad because before his dad became a pacifist, before he had the gall to defeat his enemies without killing them, he had to become so strong, other people called him a troll. i so want him to get his ass handed to him so he finally wakes up. can't just have ideals without the strength to back it up. can't go around hoping to solve real problems in an era of effin vikings without getting your hands dirty.

"No! We will not fight, instead I'll prove that everything is possible in medieval Scandinavia and I'll carve out a pacifist and rich commune because I want to!"

"Too much talking not enough fighting..." *pierce his throat and lop of his head*

"Man what a bor-" *bolt pops out of his forehead*

-THE END-

 

Much better than what we'll get, for sure.

Shit > your taste.

Rurouni Kenshin but with Vikings and slightly less flashbacks and a mostly linear timeline. That's a good thing. I really don't think people should rag on this for Thorkell becoming a pacifist, fighting all the time that's not what this story is about.

You mean Thorfinn becoming a pacifist right? If Thorkell heard you he'd murder your ass :S

After this chapter: 

Yo Stalkers out there, I’m really happy for you, Imma let you finish but Hild is one of the bestest stalkers of all all time.... of all time!

Also, the harem is expanding!

Well... he spent some years as a slave farmer, maybe he trained his fists in those time.

Spoiler

he's too much of a fight addict so I doubt it, he's probably going to end up fighting Thorfinn in this arc, since like thorfinn he prefers speed-focused fights

Still betting on him being Thorfinn crew new member
Spoiler

It's probably some derivative of his *armed* fighting techniques. He pretty much fought with his body anyway, learning how to punch with a fist rather than with a dagger isn't that big of a leap.Of course, that's still far from what we've seen him do (knocking two armed and armored people out faster than they can react is no joke) but that's where you fill in the standard anime/manga handwave. Having to watch him re-learn how to fight would just be boring.

lately we get less angry Sig, almost like a new chara
 
back when Thorfinn made a decision to not harm ppl and follow his father's footsteps, I though he's going to learn this weaponless fighting method but it seems he knew it all along?
