So how is this series /a/?

Heard the farming is a snorefest at some point but is the beginning volumes any good?

Also are the localised volume translations any decent?

Kingdom over both.

>>135846687
Now that the farmland arc is over, reading it all at once, is not that bad. Lots of character developement.
>>135848281
Why do people in kingdom get larger the more important they are? Something in the water maybe?
>>
>>135848997
Tell me about it. Have you taken a look at the "horses" of the elite variety?

I can't even describe it, but "steroids" would be a word I would use with great emphasis.
>>
>>135848997
It's the Toriko/One Piece drawing style. There's probably a proper terminology for it somewhere, but it's a stylistic choice of the artist rather than just the guy being inconsistent, though he is still inconsistent at times when he doesn't want to be.
>>
>>135849382
The Generals are supposed to look superhuman, but recently the proportions of the bodies seem to get more and more extreme.
>Horses
Yeah, the horses are hilarious, like walking squares.
>>
>>135846687
I can imagine not liking it if you had to wait monthly (or more) for the farming arc to end, but not that it has ended, reading it all in one go it's a very enjoyable manga.
>>
Farming arc is actually the best part of the manga.
Not sold on the recent chapters though.

Shit.

One of my favorites for sure, especially farmland saga. The finale to it was great.
I hope he never has to fight again, but I don't think it'll work out that way.

I bought them all because of muh nordic heritage and finally vikings with no goddamn horns on their helmets.

I don't want to see a bunch of secondaries watching the inevitably-shit adaptation and dismissing it out of hand for that.

Or worse, defending the inevitably-shit changes made to it.

Recent chapters are shit compared to the start. Still a fun read

Very good. Farming saga is great when you don't have to wait a month for the next chapter.

Does anyone watch the Viking TV series?
>>
>>135853219
Yep.
And, apparently, Thors and Thorfinn are descendants of Ragnar's sons. Although, of course, it's not the same universe.
>>
>>135852338
That scene was really great.

>>135852586
Can you imagine the shitty CG shit like what they did to Kingdom?

>Also are the localised volume translations any decent?
The same translator who did the fan translation years ago now does it for Kodansha. So yeah, it's good.

>>135846808
And thank god for that.

Read the epilogue then drop it like trash it is.
>>
>>135848997
>Why do people in kingdom get larger the more important they are?
Because the bigger you are the stronger you are in most cases. A large general is much more commanding and awe-inspiring than a wimpy little faglord. They exude strength.
>>
>>135846808
Yeah thats a good thing. The last thing this series needs is normies fucking it up like OPM

Farming Saga is best Saga.

>>135846687
After the time-skip it can basically be considered a different story altogether. Thorfinn has no character development whatsoever, for the first part he's one character and when the other starts he's a completely new character. Or rather, a non-character, who is quickly (read: slowly as fuck) turned into yet another character during a one-sided uninteresting drawn-out arc about the wonders of working hard and not killing anyone who looks at your wrong. It's a shame the decided to use Thorfinn as the MC for the second part, in a way, because he was never interesting and still isn't interesting, but as a vital side character he filled an important role. I would much have preferred to see him less traumatized, still angry and prone to violent, but slowly coming to terms with his life as he learns to hold back and the consequences of his violent behavior. There was much potential for good character development there, but it wasn't realized, and as a MC he's got very little to offer.
>>135848997
Kingdom is a wonder of dramatic exaggerations without regard for consistency. You can pretty much see the main character grow an inch between panels after he's had a character-developing moment. I love it.
>>
>>135856399
Nah, strategists don't grow to Xboxhuge size in Kingdom.
>>
>>135856992
I love this pasta.

However, youare striking gold with that Kingdom description.
>>
>>135857744
Vagabond is the perfect example of the kind of development Thorfinn needed. Maybe not as drawn out, but Musashi starts out as a violent brute who kills for little reason with no thought about the suffering he leaves behind. Then he develops, step by step, going through different stages. Thorfinn was edgy murderbrat with zero character development, bam, now he's a blank slate, bam, now he's Viking Jesus. His development was neglected for the entire prologue, and then the characterization he had during it was scrapped, and then he's another character. What I most of all don't understand about it is why. There were so many ways of giving him have a more gradual development. He could have lived with his family, he could have talked to his mother about his father (who also went from killer to pacifist), he could have gotten into conflict with others on the island and been forced to confront the results of his violence in a situation where he couldn't use MUH VENGEANCE as an excuse for not thinking about it. But nothing of the sort happened. It was rushed and I don't see why. Maybe because Askeladd was gone and the author couldn't figure out who else to take the spotlight until Thorfinn was ready to take the main stage in or during the expedition.
And why are you assuming this is pasta or trolling or anything like that? It's my honest opinion and it's not based on nothing.

>>135846687
It's fucking amazing.
Anime when?

Farmland is great
Don't listen to any pleb who tells you otherwise

>>135856262
OPM's fight scenes were loads of fun on the anime and Vinland Saga's would be the same.

It's very, very good and you should read it.
>>
muh longboats

What was worse?
Farmland Saga or Rice saga from Vagabond?
>>
>>135859076
Rice Saga dragged on way too fucking long. It was amazing character development but holy shit just kill me now.

Farmland Saga was extremely abrupt and while it was an OK read it wasn't really that great.
>>
>>135859076
Both were good, underage faggot

>>135859076
Why compare them?
>>
>>135859270
They're extremely similar in this one regard.
>>
>>135859373
So why compare them? Neither one's going to be better or worse after you've compared them.

When things are similar you tend to compare them.
That's like saying why rate anything.
>>
>>135859883
>When things are similar you tend to compare them.
For what purpose?
>>
>>135860108
Because they are similar.

"I like X, Y is similar, so I may like Y as well".

How does that happen? I wouldn't mind translating manga legally.
>>
>>135861122
Translating isn't illegal anon.
>>
>>135861074
I wasn't really talking about recommendations, though. This is just comparing stuff you've already read.
>>
>>135861244
It was an example. You compare everything, more so when they're similar.

Everything you have seen you compare to what you will see in the future. This is how people develop taste. You may not directly compare them, but sometimes you do.

In this case, both of the series started with a badass MC who at one point settles down to do some farming to initiate character development. This isn't exactly common, so it's directly compared to one another. Why do people do it? Because that's how humans fucking work.
