Thorfinns story is just so cruel.. But I guess hes already broken..
I'm growing to like Askeladd as a character more and more
Also was it only me or are the characterdesign for the english soldiers almost the same all the time? Or at least in this episode

Ya know Kimetsu may have better animation and godlike visuals, but Vinland has a much better story. I love em both in different ways.

But Vinland saga also has glorious animation and backgrounds
Yeah they're awesome, but Ufotable is in a league of it's own. I'll admit tha

Kimetsu is a fantasy series which use more special effects in fighting scene so visually it looks colourful and awesome, while Vinland use more realistic approach with less special effect.

I'll give this a couple more episodes, but so far even the action scenes have bored me to death.
experienced soldier? Thorfin has much better training and is shown to be more gifted. Just because you're older doesn't make you stronger. And what experience it was never was established that those soldiers are hardened by battle nor experience?

Thorfinn tried to warn the villagers which was a nice move. too bad they didn't understand him. glad to see that he is adapting to his new environment. he understands that he has to defend himself at all costs. looking forward to the next episode.

dah fuq, what does great animation have to do with anything I said, and from what I've seen so far the storytelling in demon slayer is solid.

what a depressing episode
Askeladd said all the women belong to him
Does that mean the mother and her daughter were...?

When Thorfinn threw the knife at the enemy who's sneaking up to Askeladd, wouldn't it be funny if he was actually aiming for Askeladd and missed, accidentally saving him? lolol jk

Hes more like 16 after timeskip.


Oh wow - I wasn't expecting a 10 year jump. It makes sense - that's able to take on grown me. Thanks for the clarification.


He’s about 11 here in this episode when he’s in the village. So it was about a 5 year jump, & then the next skip will be about 5 years, so he’ll be 16 for the main story timeline.

That was actually a different time. Thorfinn was much younger when that conversation went on then when he was saved by that lady. But even so, we can assume that their fates weren’t good if they were caught...

Thorfinn already became a little badass. It will be very interesting to see how the relationship between him and Askeladd develops from here on.

I had a lump in my throat during the raid at the end....

Thors wouldn’t be proud of his son if he was alive.
I guess Thorfinn chose the dark side.
It’s so weird to see him work for the guy that killed his dad.

Probably the best episode so far, even better than the one when Thors died. Seems like his grown-up version is not as annoying as before.

Perfect example of personal drama and cost of human life. Finally someone had put a mirror in front of him and it was well-done.
Finally he realized he is now monster too and what his father tried to evade.

talking about the monogatari series just what the hell made it so popular??? I tried watching it but it's just so confusing as if they're making it abstract just for the sake of confusing people into thinking "omg this is so confusing which must means this is something deep and meaningful that's beyond my understanding!"

It's because of its fun cast who has some of the best character chemistry in anime in general lol (at least to most people that is). Same reason why Bunny Girl Senpai is also quite popular albeit only the 1st 2 arcs had great chemistry imo

God this is so hard to watch... a little boy should not be living that life 😭 I am glad that Askeladd took him in though because things could've been so much worse for Thorfinn if he hadn't

That last scene really got me. It was so damn sad but i just about managed not to cry haha

look, if you are looking for realism this series is not good, later with thorkell there are even worse exaggerations, you should take it more like a story with fantasy protagonists in a real historical context, but you may not like it.

Anyway back to the episode, I didn't like the technical part especially after yesterday's demon-slayer episode

I really dislike the CGI, but, for me, the other parts make up for it. It's nice to see Thorfinn's evolution as he sinks himself in hatred and revenge. As for his fights, I think it's acceptable that he can take on people older than him. Ever since as a kid, he was shown to be merciless on child play, plus he had to live for himself in the woods, and fight a kid is rather unexpected. Also, there wasn't such thing as a professional knight, the series itself gave an example, as the Icelandic soldiers were totally trash even tho they were "trained". Also nice that they conserved the language barrier.

Damn this show really is going for that historical accuracy, Vikings not having horns on their helmets (like myths say they do), archers doing most of the fighting, language differences. Also MC that isn't afraid to ho harm wow what a shocker

The CGI soldiers though, that looked so garbage lol. Actually not even the soldiers the cgi in general is pretty garbage

tbf considering how many action shows lately have had subpar animation, I can see how great animation can be blinding lmao

The cgi wasn't really bad. The only noticible scene for me was when Askeladd's crew landed at the end of the episode. It wasn't really good, ngl.
I like Gilgamesh. He is a nice guy.

ah this has to be one of my favourite chapters in the prologue, there's so much emotion packed into it. I think Wit studios did a great job on this one, seeing it animated really was a treat I think it really cemented how awful thorfinns journey has been so far

I'd agree that this is one of my favorite chapters in the earlier prologue, wit studio really outdid themselves adapting it. I'd argue that it was even more sad here.

So good man. What a brutal moment for Thorrfinn and that poor old lady. I doubt many of those villagers made it out alive. Besides that I really liked how they showed Thorfinn getting his first kill and then later getting two daggers.

Hard to see that grandma's face when she saw thorfin killing those man, he felt bad for that but the last face he showed was him getting back to his reality. Good to see his progression.

I can accept that Thorfinn fall into dark side, but with the same group that kill his father?
And is this fantasy? A group of highly developed countries were once involced in such an unreasonably barbaric act?
Also a little bit funny story of mine, I watch this anime because a decade ago my friend recommend me a masterpiece manga. I mistakenly remember that manga as Vinland Saga, but recently my friend correct me it's actually 'Vagabond' (and there's no anime adaptation yet).


So, He doesn't consider himself part of the group. You can see he eats by himself and only does things when he's promised a duel as a reward. He realized that he didn't have the strength to kill the dude as a kid, so his biding his time until he can kill him. Ever hear of "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"? that's this.
Also, Highly developed countries are involved in unreasonably barbaric acts to this day my friend.
Lastly, Vinland Saga is often spoken in the same breath as Vagabond, so you are in good company.

It's so great. I love the character development in this episode. Thorfinn changed so much since then.

It's a little bit disappointed tho, Thorfinn all of a sudden can kill a grown soldier. I hoped they just jump into the manga, or maybe handle Thorfinn and Askeladd relationships like Guts and Gambino relationship in Berserk
Still, I love this episode so much.

Kudos for the anime showing Thors first kill and the anime original passage of time. I might get slack for saying this, but I think that in this episode the anime outdid the manga in knowing that audience needed to see that first kill and at least a hint of a transition to know how hardened he has become in such little time.

Lol Askeladd drives the story in Prologue not Thorfinn. Keep chatting crap you will realise how jumping to conclusions makes you look like a clown later.

I'm only on episode 11 of Kimetsu rn, and it has to be one of the worst anime I've seen in a while. Aside from the pretty art and animation, everything else is done so poorly, I don't understand how people praise the show so much.

I really like the direction this adaptation is taking with the story. In the manga, it jumps straight to adult, cold-hearted killer Thorfinn, but the anime's really taking its time to develop him into that stage. This episode really showed Thorfinn's more humane side again, after showing his savage side. Kind of like Afro Samurai where there's a point where the protagonist questions his path of revenge, which is something I love.

As for how he got so strong, in the manga I recall it stating that Askeladd trained him, but it's a problem that the anime doesn't quite state that. Still, I think it's still safe to assume for the anime, he got so strong because he was trained.

uninstallthegame said:
um, can someone explain why Thorfinn is working together with Askeladd and the mercenaries? i know he wants to get battle experience and not to lose sight of Askeladd, but doing work for the one who killed your father? don't get it

perhaps, he's trying to gain their trust and then backstab them? i doubt it's a stockholm syndrome thing


It's been explained before that Thorfinn's goal is to kill Askeladd in an honorable duel, because Askeladd killed his father dishonorably. To achieve that, he joins Askeladd's gang, which also ensures he gets stronger and can fight Askeladd any time.
