Dammit! What did he say?! Please say yes!

Poor Siggy, he was a good man. Hopefully he finds a wife more suited for him one day.

That confession was so awkward, but we can be pretty certain that they end together those 2.
Now I wonder if they will reach their destination soon or if there will be big arc to get to Greece now.

Sigurd was the true hero of this chapter. He sacrificed everything he had.

I believe we will get one more arc before getting to Constantinople. They still have long way to go in order to reach Greece. They have to go through Kievan Rus, which is big.

I would love if get an arc there. There are quite a few interesting characters like Vladimir the Great and situation there is really interesting because at exactly that time the process of Christianization of Slavs in Rus was happening. Political situation is also interesting because Vladimir was the first barbarian ruler to marry a Byzantine princess.

There is a lot of potential in that area and a lot of stuff and themes to explore like entirely new culture, different pagan religion, process of conversion to Christianity, politics with Eastern Roman Empire, conflicts with Turkic tribes, etc.
This can all lead nicely to Constantinople arc.

Very good points. It's also an interesting angle, because very few people in Western Europe know how the Norsemen also were very active towards the east. Most fiction only tackles what the Vikings did in the British Isles, Normandy and the like.

Damn spend two days to get from the beginning to here. Never spent so much time reading manga. I NEED TO SUPPORT THIS AUTHOR.
Also I hope to see more Sigurd in the future. I Like him as comic relief, and seeing him and his friends misfortune.

Vladimir is dead by this point, however it might line up with the fighting for the throne between Sviatopolk and Yaroslav which involves both polish and turkic warriors on the same soil. The author might do a story about that if he's done his research

I came to love Sigurd.

Cute chapter.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.
