what do y'all mean by episode 3?


They released three episodes at once, but there will be a three week break after them

For real?? A 3 weeks break? I would've prefered 1 episodes per week then :/
yikes

It was a nice treat to get 3 episodes at once! Thankfully i've read the first volume of manga, so waiting another 3 weeks for episode 4 won't be too bad.

Looks like this'll be a really solid anime.

Yeah, I've read a good bit of the manga too, but waiting until the end of July for ep. 4 is going to suck! I'm ready to see more of everybody's favorite cunning bastard, Askeladd, on the big screen.

Yeah but he doesn't even want him back in the army or did I get something wrong? He's an even bigger traitor to his superiors hence why I call him a pig. They are willing to overlook Thors crime because he's an exceptional warrior, this pig says fuck it I want him dead.

Also even with the Viking era in mind I still respect Thors' decision, yes him leaving in battle wasn't courageous but it was to move away from violence and live a humble life with his family. Similar occurrences still happen, think about gangs, extreme religious groups and every shithole in general lol. It's not that I wasn't aware of why his deeds were seen as despicable war crimes, it's more about how Thors deals with it and why he believed he did the right thing. It backfired anyway, he wasn't able to impart his own new values onto his children. So yes if you live in that sort of world you will be shamed and punished, but why is that? Only because he changed and started thinking for himself instead of following the rest.

Here dude, I fixed it. Cuz Vinland (2005) is A lot older than AOT (2009), so there's no way thorfin could Copypaste Eren. Duh

I thought I was clear enough, I said: "there's no way Thorfin could copypaste eren" Which also means : "NO, Thorfin is not Eren, Both are different and Nothing alike"

These episodes feel like they are over before they even begin. Episode 3 has me completely convinced that this is going to be contender for AOTY and I think they made the smart choice in airing the first 3 episodes on the same day.

Holy virgin mother goose! This anime is the best thing.

It just took me back when I fell in love with anime, it looks like it belong with the greats such as Magi, berserk and the kingdom. Thank the anime Gods for this masterpiece, I've been through hell after last season's anime and this must be my salvation. I know I'm not wrong from the three episodes I've just watched, I'm pumped as hell for the fourth episode and what's to come. Whoever came up with this anime Thank you and bless you! Thors is a pacifist but I like him and he's my favorite so far, I usually don't stand these creeps but him- thumbs up. Also the development is fire so far, most of all- Its about MF vikings.

Please if you are looking for isekai or best girls or any of that harem shit, please please please leave us and don't soil this anime!!!! I will say it again, please leave this if you are looking for any senseless crap. Please man I'm begging you on my knees with all four corners.

These three episodes were certainly better than the five seasons of vikings the television show. My pick show of the season!!!!!!!!

I was quite worried about this anime because from my experience, seinen manga's adaptations usually don't do so well.

Fortunately this worry was completely unfolded and the anime looks great so far. And that voice actor for my boy Askeladd. I'm already enjoying it far too much. This season has disappointed me so far but Vinland Saga already managed to turn it around. It's only first week but AOTS has already been decided for me. AOTY though, that will be a tough one to chose from but if this quality is kept up then Vinland might as well take it. After all, this flashback yea, it's alright but the real stuff comes later.

Although my main question now would be, how far will those 25 episodes reach in the story. I hope there are more seasons to at least cover the first arc.

THIS ISNT A SPOILER ONLY AN CLARIFICATION BUT READ WITH PRECAUTION

The anime is changing the order of events but in a good way and i understand why they publish 3 episodes in a a row but the real 1st episode is going to be the next one so dont be so harsh or drop it if you are pretty accelerated

pd: I re-read the manga 3 times and for me is the best manga i ever read and i read a lot including berserk

As for Thorfinn vs Eren they both have an edgy aspect I will admit lol. They both go down separate character development paths that are drastically different and they end up as two completely different characters.

I will say while Thorfinn is the MC I wouldn't say the plot really is driven by him in this arc so if you really take issue with him it might not be a huge issue as there are tons of other characters with varying personalities that drive the plot. Askeladd is probably the most enjoyable character in this arc in my honest opinion and he gets a lot of screen time and is the main driver of the story outside of another character we have yet to be introduced to.

One thing I will say I don't get the whole AOT vs Vinland comparisons outside of it being done by WIT thematically and even later genre wise they are different stories.

This episode is summarized in these words "Be a father, change your life completely", and Thors did it.
I thought that Thors had met Helga after deserting the army, it was a surprise to know that they were married long before. By the way, she is a beautiful woman.
15 years of Marriage, almost 15 years of peace that are now in danger because of Floki, that damned worm.
Now with the ambush, Thors will not be able to carry out his plan to leave the youngsters safe and Thorfinn in Norway.

Hahaha, Thorfinn was cunning when hiding in a barrel, he just lacked to say "I will be the King of the Pirates" 😂. Thors' reaction to seeing his son so excited, touched me. But afterwards, Thorfinn earned himself a good spanking. LOL.

The episode ended in the best part. And I know that the death of Thors is inevitable, it's a shame, I like the character very much. The next episode will be very sad.
Well, we will meet again on July 28 to see episode 4.

PS: Why does Studio VOLN and Studio Wit have the same intro? xD.

Once again Anime surprises the heck out of me and I have been in the industry for years now. This is a superb history series, and uses animation and the capacity of highly developed solid first class anime art and design perfectly. I am eager to see how it goes.

well done

Ylva is very popular among men.

Leif is kind of impresive with his knowlage about sailing, you can see his experience.

Thorfinn got his first weapon and his father is no joke in battle. I need next episode as soon as possible

Got me excited to see the next episode as I wanna see more of Thors in action, as well as more fight scenes.

And who can blame them? Ylva is pretty hot, though she reminds of Mereoleona from Black Clover though I don't know why.

Those boys better not die or I'm cursing someone.

They are not. Thorfinn at this point in the series is a brat. But he doesn't get the kind of special treatment Eren got from people around him. He's a brat and people treat him as a brat. He also isn't anywhere near as mindless as Eren.

Holy sh¡t, this anime gives me Berserk vibes, I guess is not the same, but that feeling of rawness is similar.

I thought Dr. Stone will be anime of the season, but I was wrong after all.

Hum, I got the sad feeling that Thor's crew won't be returning with all its members... pretty obvious Thorfinn will survive but about the others ? So many death flags on the young men already, yuck

Damn, to think that we'll get the answers in 3 weeks, man, that's a long ride to wait

The most fascinating moment i noticed in this episode is that every moment's background sound perfectly fit well-be it Askeladd-Floki conversation, or the cliff moment.


And the cllifhanger was done so well.

Almost at the end of the prologue now. Gonna be 20 days before episode 4 though apparently. Pace is probably going to slow down after they finish the prologue too.

Also, we finally get to see the GOAT.

I was expecting a lot and I was not disappointed at all, it's a excellent job, the ost, the atmosphere is very nice, the action scenes although they used CGI they used it only for camera movements, but it is very well in the fights.
As for the story it is very well set the total lack of pandering otaku is very rare nowadays or generally in an anime of these the characters lack substance, but it is the opposite here.

It's nice to see a manga that truly deserves a good adaptation is getting exactly that. If it continues with this same level of quality, then it's easily AOTY material.

That's because the fact that Thor dies is never a spoiler in the first place. If the anime has followed the order in which the manga told its story, that would have been revealed in the first episode, before you even meet Thor.

I've enjoyed what I've seen so far. I like it when a show takes its time, but at episode 3, this is really starting to drag. If this was an on-going series, I would understand the pace. But with only 24 episodes, this is beginning to go too slowly.

Thors in his younger days seemed to be arrogant and less caring, but once he brought a child into the world, his worldview began to change. It's nice to know that a character that has seemed inherently flawless so far did indeed have his own issues in the past.

Honestly, I just hope Thorfinn's fine ass sister is going to be ok.
