@Peeti I see... Thanks for the feedback
I just realized that all of my favorite characters, beside being stunningly beautiful, are also exceptionally skilled at killing. {×.×}

Is Demon Slayer really good? ...

Based on your anime list, I wouldn't say it's great by your standards. First 7 or so episodes are structured very poorly, the pacing seems off. Characters are very one-dimensional so far, they are quite hit or miss, depending on your tolerance to their quirks. It has some stunningly good shonen moments in the later episodes, however, so I would say it's the kind of anime you don't regret you've watched after a certain point (even though not everything about those moments makes sense, the artistic execution is on point).

I'm fairly confident to claim you would ultimately think that Vinland saga is a tier or two above the Demon Slayer, even if you saw the later. Both are audiovisually beautiful, though, Demon Slayer doesn't lack in that department.
Thanks for elaborating it in details, you even use my list as reference. I really appreciate it.

2 words Amazon Prime. The majority of people I know who have a Prime membership don't actually use the video service at all let alone know there was one. The quality of anime on prime is pretty subpar minus this and a few other titles. I honestly wish this was on Crunchyroll so I don't have to pay for another membership for one show. Other than that pacing is great, I'm not a manga reader but I find the show is very engaging with what has been going on so far!

It’s still popular but Vinland saga just doesn’t have a unique story or premise that would make it pop out . Dr Stone is set in a world where everybody has turned to stone because of an unknown phenomenon and a scientist trying to recover mankind . Fire force is set in a world where people are randomly combusting into flames and turning into Fire demons and there are fire soldiers fighting the fire demons with fire powers not to mention government conspiracy . KnY is set in a historical time period with demons , samurai and an interesting power system that’s visually and metaphorically striking . Vinland saga is just a story about Vikings and revenge and while it’s a good story , there’s nothing there that would make it pop out and stand out . It’s a good story and it’s still popular tho .

there is still less than 200K members at the moment now dont get me wrong that kind of number is popular (afaik anything that reach 100K members on an anime entry here on MAL with its current 6 million total users is popular already) but to me its not reaching Attack on Titan levels yet?

should they have aired this on CrunchyRoll instead that has like 45million users at the moment instead of Amazon Prime which i do not know how many users it has and probably a lot less than CrunchyRoll have

or are there any other reason why its not getting more popular right now?


It’s getting overshadowed by KNY and FF. All the great animation and fights are what people are looking for right now it seems. VS is a lot slower paced then both of those shows and people that expect it to be all fighting don’t get hooked and leave.I mean, look at the 2/10 review, it’s almost at the top with 137 people finding it helpful. It shows that VS isn’t meeting a lot of people’s expectations. Also, it doesn’t help that there wasn’t a marketing push by Amazon. They just put it up for people to watch. A lot of people don’t know it even exist, all I see on YouTube are people asking “ what is this called?” , “ Where do I watch this” and “ I didn’t know they were making a Vinland anime”. There are also a lot of people putting it aside and not giving it a chance or putting it on hold. So, I don’t think Vinland is going to be crazy popular. It’s probably gonna stay niche. It might blow up during later episodes or later in the year, who knows.


What you said is true, but kinda sad how trash generic shounens like FF and KNY (+bnha, +++fate) get hyped up so much just because animation...

@Daniel_Naumov HAH, assuming socitety will develop, it is on a pretty steep downward slope atm..

Let the season end...most will watch after it finishes airing as it is slow and one wuold like to watch a whole season in one go rather than watching ep every week...

Yes..KnY's popularity really affected it...after watching 15+ ep KnY becomes interesting....of course it is little bit too much hyped(hope you will understand) and why not so ..ufotable really did a great job in animating ep 19...

Also it is slow paced but it has an unique plot with great character development and animation which will make it popular...just wait for the time being...

They're just greedy.
Vinland's anime only trails its manga by 0.20 points, so they see, that like the manga, it's very favorably received. Vinland is in the top 50 most popular manga, so they probably expected the anime would be as popular but it isn't. You're right. It's pretty naive to just point to another show to explain why the anime is't massively popular. It's probably a confluence of many factors. If I was a long-time Vinland manga reader, I'd feel good, having my taste in manga/anime validated.

Well, there's literally not a single good thing about it besides for the 2D art. It's about as historically accurate as Disney's Pocahontas. The characters are one-dimensional and uninteresting. The plot couldn't get any more generic (not necessarily a bad thing in itself but still). The pacing is mind-numbingly slow. The fight scenes are boring as hell. Like, I just can't see where one could possibly derive enjoyment from this.

I guess, it's more about expectations and preference.

Personally, I don't mind the inaccuracy, since it's fiction. Even tho it's in it early stages.

I don't think that characters are one-dimensional and uninteresting. Askeladd is far from one-dimensional. Thorkell is a very fun character to watch. Thorfinn is also pretty decently written. Even if he's unlikable and obnoxious, it's interesting that there's that much irony and struggle in his life.

Pacing may be slow, but I don't mind it. Anime takes time build up. Which I respect, since most of animes jump right into the action. Which can feel rushed, even tho I don't mind that. I just prefer that anime takes it time before the climax happens.

The fights scenes are pretty fogetable and short. Episode 9 is an exception ofc. That was a great fight.

Sucks ya didn't enjoy it, but ya know preferences and opinions.

@Mythologically You can't even explain why the charaters are one-dimensional or why the plot is generic because of your one-dimensional view of the story.

Your review is like super cringe. You tried to make fun of the plot but the only thing you did was describe the premise? Only a self-absorded hater can come up with something so stupid, holy shit. Someone who takes time to write 24 reviews should know better but it's MAL so whatever. Call it generic all you want, you won't be able to justify that after the anime ends because there's nothing else like it in this medium. You can't even do now it either though let's be honest, you can only fall back to "LOOK AT THE FIGHTS IT'S TOTALLY A GENERIC BATTLE SHOUNEN"

Your rant on Thors wtf.. never did he say anything like "If you kill your enemies, you're as bad as them!". He just didn't belief there was a need for blood to be shed. I don't even understand how you can think Thors made a dumb decision by asking for a duel, if he didn't the rest of them would've either been killed or sold as slaves, he knew he had to die after realising Floki was behind the attack. Askeladd kept the promise anyway. Seriously a beta male like you feeling repulsed by Thors is hilarious lol, dude saved everyone


You should look up what historical fiction is, will help you not to have wrong expectations. The first minute of this series already contained unrealistic combat so it's unfair criticism to be honest, you're free to keep holding on to that to support the rest of your terrible critique though, you're obviously baiting so it's not like people who are actually invested in critique will give a shit.

Deep down you know your behaviour is more edgy than Thorfinn.. calm down. Why bother writing reviews when you don't give a shit? Talk about boring..

@Mythologically How is responding to your post and review insecure? At least I'm trying to engage in conversation about an anime on a anime forum.

But likewise, I think your posts are shit too. It's kinda boring when you frame yourself as if there's no room left for other interpretations and never explain yourself

Sure Amazon isn't helping with it's popularity ( even-though it is the best streaming site along side Netflix for anime where I live ), but how it's doing in Japan ?
If it's getting second season I don't care about it's popularity in the west.

Amazon prime and becouse the average anime watcher only cares about fight scenes and don't care about anything els such as the progression of a story like build up or interested in seeing character growth they need a fight scene every 30 seconds to stay interested.

Thorfinn grows way passed that as the story progresses, he is initially written like that at the start of the series for a purpose. Similar to how Eren was bascally just a revenge boi as well for the first season of AoT and grew into a much more complex character. Even now thought there is a bit more to Thorfinn then that the Thors in Thorfinn dreams telling him to give up on his revenge is his own subconscious talking. Deep down he knows what he's doing is wrong ,not what his father wanted and hates ever mintue of( remember after fighting Thorkell he said the he hates fighting and doesn't know how anybody could enjoy it which is a far cry from how he wanted to be a warrior as a child before really experiencing battle) he feels he then done to much and suffered too much on th his revenge quest to turn back now

The guys who watch Vinland Saga are the same guys who save up and spend their entire paycheck on an ugly designer jacket. Same dudes who plug their nose when they jump in a pool. Same dudes who shower with socks on. There's not enough of those dudes and that's what hinders the popularity.

You take for granted that some of the 13-14 years olds on this site actually love that. After getting beat by their parents every Sunday they too can get angry and watch Thorfinn do epic things! Sometimes they throw in terms like "character development," "pacing," and even "intellectual," to pat themselves on the back and cheer up after the beating they just took. At the end of the day they just want to fulfill their fantasy of fighting back against their dads, and live through Thorfinn in his fight against Goatee dude!

I'm positive someone above definitely mentioned this, but I feel that Vinland Saga not airing on Crunchyroll and exclusively on Amazon Prime/other websites hinders its popularity growth. That being said, I think it's plenty enough popular and is definitely going to continue in that trend.

People like what they've already seen. The show's level of quality isn't a detriment to its popularity. Manga readers overstate criticism. It's perplexing. The relatively small number of vocal detractors can't compare to 33k (85%) of 38k voters giving 8, 9 or 10. The synopsis of Stone/Kimetsu just resonates with wider audiences AND/OR Vinland is less accessible, being absent from Crunchyroll. Limited release films will never hit Avengers box office numbers, and just because a film becomes critically acclaimed doesn't mean it will become a blockbuster.
But you're onto something. Any masterfully done episode down the line could create the kind of buzz that drives popularity up.

This happens to all amazon anime. ^^; But it is over 200k now.

But I found out Amazon actually has more content (like good content, not just anime content) than all the other services but... their service is just so poorly sorted you can't find anything.

Nope, the total opposite the first episode quickly sky rocketed its popularity, by time it reach episode 5, it became a mega hit series.

You didn't bother arguing with him because you can't. You wouldn't be able to counter any of his points.


Right then, let me counter his pathetic attempts at "points".

First of all, no one can provide evidence as to why a character is one-dimensional. One-dimensionality is the default state of a character. In order to stop being one-dimensional, a character has to do something that would make them complex. That hasn't been the case with Vinland so far. Thorfinn's whole personality is "me angry". That's literally all that there is to him. Same with Askeladd. He is literally just cool, and that is it. Maybe they develop in the manga, but we're not talking about the manga here, are we.

His whole next paragraph is filled with literal verbal diarrhea. The only thing remotely close to a point is "You tried to make fun of the plot but the only thing you did was describe the premise". Yep, because the premise is literally all that the plot of the show has been so far. It's a generic revenge story, and nothing else has happened so far. Thorfinn's dad dies, Thorfinn wants to get revenge, and then Askeladd's crew goes around and does Viking things. That's it. I didn't even call the plot particularly bad in my review either. If the clown actually bothered looking at the scores I gave each aspect of the show, he would find that I gave the story a 6, which indicates that it is slightly below average. So far, the story has been slightly below average, as literally nothing of significance has happened.

The second paragraph is simply factually incorrect and logically incoherent. True, he never literally said, "If you kill your enemies, you're as bad as them!". However, those words are implied by his actions. In a situation where ships full of Vikings threaten the lives of him, his child, and other people that he has known for years, Thors decides to spare the lives of said Vikings. With the power levels Thors is shown to have, he could have easily killed all of them, and no one on his side would have had to die. The strongest person on the side of the Vikings, Askeladd, is someone that Thors was able to fairly easily defeat in a duel. This sort of illogical, moral preaching is completely unbelievable considering the historical context of the show.

The last paragraph is again full of verbal diarrhea since Eqsuirtit is incapable of rational thought. Again, the only point there is "hurr durr historical fiction >:(", which is simply nuts. Historical fiction shouldn't be full of literal bullshit. I can't take a show seriously when a bunch of people run at high speeds downhill while carrying a ship on their back.

Anyway, that's enough effort put into responding to your low effort posts.

it's like AoT when it first aired slow paced so it won't attract alot of people and ibet AoT In S1 was like VN's case too lmao


Nope, the total opposite the first episode quickly sky rocketed its popularity, by time it reach episode 5, it became a mega hit series.


okay then VN might be the opposite anyways when we get to the main point of it it might become like AoT

damn didnt know any legitimate criticism towards a popular show is just an attempt to gain attention for not liking said popular show. guess any criticism towards it is just invalid then :( the more you know


Damn, didn't know literally anything negative a person says about a show is considered legitimate criticism, even when it makes no sense and they didn't explain themselves whatsoever. The more you know, am I right?


damn didnt know accurately describing the entirety of thorfinns character with two simple words made no sense. here i was thinking a completely one note main character made the already empty story even less engaging. wait i forgot i cant criticize this show because it is popular mb bro ill stop now

You didn't bother arguing with him because you can't. You wouldn't be able to counter any of his points.


Right then, let me counter his pathetic attempts at "points".

First of all, no one can provide evidence as to why a character is one-dimensional. One-dimensionality is the default state of a character. In order to stop being one-dimensional, a character has to do something that would make them complex. That hasn't been the case with Vinland so far. Thorfinn's whole personality is "me angry". That's literally all that there is to him. Same with Askeladd. He is literally just cool, and that is it. Maybe they develop in the manga, but we're not talking about the manga here, are we.

His whole next paragraph is filled with literal verbal diarrhea. The only thing remotely close to a point is "You tried to make fun of the plot but the only thing you did was describe the premise". Yep, because the premise is literally all that the plot of the show has been so far. It's a generic revenge story, and nothing else has happened so far. Thorfinn's dad dies, Thorfinn wants to get revenge, and then Askeladd's crew goes around and does Viking things. That's it. I didn't even call the plot particularly bad in my review either. If the clown actually bothered looking at the scores I gave each aspect of the show, he would find that I gave the story a 6, which indicates that it is slightly below average. So far, the story has been slightly below average, as literally nothing of significance has happened.

The second paragraph is simply factually incorrect and logically incoherent. True, he never literally said, "If you kill your enemies, you're as bad as them!". However, those words are implied by his actions. In a situation where ships full of Vikings threaten the lives of him, his child, and other people that he has known for years, Thors decides to spare the lives of said Vikings. With the power levels Thors is shown to have, he could have easily killed all of them, and no one on his side would have had to die. The strongest person on the side of the Vikings, Askeladd, is someone that Thors was able to fairly easily defeat in a duel. This sort of illogical, moral preaching is completely unbelievable considering the historical context of the show.

The last paragraph is again full of verbal diarrhea since Eqsuirtit is incapable of rational thought. Again, the only point there is "hurr durr historical fiction >:(", which is simply nuts. Historical fiction shouldn't be full of literal bullshit. I can't take a show seriously when a bunch of people run at high speeds downhill while carrying a ship on their back.

Anyway, that's enough effort put into responding to your low effort posts.
Lol, great then , you can watch other anime. This is not for you.

Of course wasting your time here when you can find something other in millions of entertainment things. Oye, when I said u shouldn't say negative things but u said it and that's it, did I. What now? I think u literally said that u can't take the show seriously, then it's obvious that I may say it to u. It's not like that u wanna like the series though.

This anime started strong, but I started loosing interest with every episode.
Luckily I have Amazon Prime, so I had an easy time watching the show in HD

The show has a weak premise. It also doesnt have people schilling for it like random cute anime girl shows do.

Look at the ratings though. It'll be a "sleeper" hit at teh end of this season with more and more people catching on. Surprised some of the fights haven taken off as key moments.
