Prince Canute has decided to claim his throne and he will do whatever he has to to do so. Thorfinn, Askeladd, and Thorkill have all thrown in their lot with Prince Canute as Prince Canute journeys to face his father. This book continues the story of the Danish invasion of England and the more personal story of Thorfinn’s vendetta against Askeladd.
This continues to be one of my favorite manga series, it is just such high quality and so well done. The illustration is absolutely stunning and full of wonderful detail.
This was one of the most intense and, at times, most hilarious books in this manga series. As with previous books there is a lot of action and fighting. There is also a lot of swearing, rape, gruesome war scenes, etc...so I would recommend for adults only.
Askeladd and Thorfinn have a strange relationship. They both seem to need each other but Thorfinn also hates Askeladd, you see this explored more in this book than in any other. I loved that Thorkill was in the book more, he is such a jerk but also really funny...he had me laughing out loud a number of times.
This book really is the close of one major storyline and the start of the next. I am incredibly curious to see where this story goes.
Overall I loved this book; it was the best in this series so far. The illustration is phenomenal and Yukimura does such a wonderful job creating an epic and intricate plot that is never hard to follow. Yukimura has also done an excellent job creating characters we actually care about. Highly recommended to all manga fans, this is an exceptional historical manga.
There are very few Manga Authors who nail it like Makoto Yukimura do. I am placing this manga up there with Battle Angel Alita by Yukito Kishiro because of its sheer splendor!
Both the art and the story are absolute top-notch, no doubt. I cannot recommend this serie enough. And that says a lot because I am very fussy when it comes to giving 5 stars to anything. I suggest starting at volume 1 of course because the story here in volume 4 shifts dramatically. Not spoiling anything, though...But you would not start a book at chapter 4 obviously...So if you are considering getting this story, start at the beginning, you will not regret it one bit.
Yes, there is violence, blood and guts but this story portrays an age of conquest, violence and uncertainty. I am blown away by the depth of the characters and I am quite attached to some of them. That is what makes a good story: the characters and where they are taking you on their journey. Vinland Saga is no doubt my top favorite manga right now even beating the epic Attack on Titan though they are not the same, Vinland Saga beats it because of the incredible beauty of the drawings and details in the plots...But this is only my humble opinion, of course.
Really enjoy this series so far; pick this up to support this series and get the publisher to bring more volumes to English!
Also, the hardcover is fantastic quality, and the spines look great on the shelf.
