vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png©Makoto Yukimura, KODANSHA/VINLAND SAGA SEASON 2 Project This season made me think of seeing characters grow in anime how rare in Thorfinn’s way. Oh sure, we’re always skipping time, and you have fan favorite legacy sequels that give us glimpses into characters’ lives years later, but Thorfin’s transformation feels so visceral, all-encompassing. When you compare the boy we met 300 For the man we saw in “Cursed Head”, it felt almost impossible to recognize them as the same person, which is exactly what it is touching place. See Einar and Thorfinn fall the last tree, see their long walk to freedom come to an end, see Thorfinn Smile So serious, yes ‘s longtime viewer’s moment can’t help but feel bad because we see our hero not only in stature and muscle mass and The beard grows in length, and lives his life (mentally, if not already physically) with his abilities as a free man. This kind of character development makes someone like Thorfinn feel real. vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png It also helps that the visuals are so rock solid this season. Sure, the vocal performances and music are good enough that if the show was just a series of static stick figures done on a bunch of post-it notes, the sadness might still flow, but the lovely art direction and character animation are certainly appreciated, all the same. As Thorfinn quietly and confidently expresses his dream of a free future—somehow freeing the world from war and slavery—the scene could easily slip into obnoxious sentimentality if the direction is poor. However, the way the show focuses on Thorfinn’s well-crafted animation and detailed hands makes you feel The core truth of Thorfinn’s dream, however lofty or childish it may be. It makes you want to make that world as bad as Thorfinn is. All of this transformational growth can be used for less healthy purposes, however, Because our ambitious King Kanute so clearly demonstrates it. Not content with simply ruling England, Canute had arrived in Denmark to visit his ailing brother Harald, whose imminent death just happened to bring the country under his rule. We saw in Episode 5 the blood trail Canute was willing to forge in his quest for power, but while this latest addition to Canute’s growing death toll isn’t as revealing as Thorfinn’s transition to a pacifist life, it’s just as A symbol of a determined man’s power to shape his own destiny. Better and worse. vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.pngvinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png did an excellent job of establishing Canute as a true foil to Thorfinn. Thorfinn, a violent and lost child, has now grown into a more compassionate and whole adult, while Canute willingly casts aside any innocence or chivalry he had in his youth, all at the expense of power. on the altar. The very obvious and brutal murder of Harald becomes all the more tragic when Canute reflects on how much he loved Harald as a child. His older brother never cared about the gossip and power struggles that defined the royal experience; what mattered was that Knut had a chance to be loved, to be taught. growing up. vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png Did dying Harald feel like all the effort was being made to help him Is it worthwhile for brother to grow into a fine young king? It’s hard to tell, and he doesn’t think things will last long. Is Knut content with the brutal path he has chosen? I’m sure he’ll tell us, “Of course!” I think the vision of the ironic severed head of his father would lead me to conclude that the king was bluffing. As the previous king had pointed out, the ambitions Canute harbored were both a useful tool and a curse, and the troubles Canute would never stop. Thorfinn found peace by seeking a life of self-sufficiency and kindness, even if it robbed him of the power he could once wield over suffering strangers. Canute is seeking peace via power, as if one day more lands and more subjects would fill the void in his heart. As a normal person, I would never have decided from the start if the plan was doomed or not, but it’s clear we can see how Kanoute got caught up in himself as he reflected on what he’d done. After all, wearing a crown is heavy on the head. Rating: vinland-saga-s2-eps-10.pngvinland-saga-s2-eps-10.png Season 2 is currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
