^Yeah. I think it's an "image" to force the enemy to offer something different, something Canute actually wants; not necessarily that the "face" is his "real" self. I don't think he's aiming to extract more pithy wealth from the already broken Mercia. That's far too petty a thing for a man who denounced God and declared his intention to establish a Kingdom of Man on Earth to do.

Although I do miss the old bishounen prince. Is it just me or the author offered a subtle commentary on the horrible state of Medieval dental hygiene with the condition of the former pretty boy's teeth?

I like the similarity and contrast between Thorfinn and Canute in regards to their Viking culture.

Here Canute saw raping, pillaging and slaving he immediately had those responsible heads cut off.

When Thorfinn saw a girl being raped in front of him he doesn't like it but he wont stop them either. He declined participating in the gang rape. The girls's eyes pleading that he save her. He can't change anything even if he killed those bastards. Its how his culture works.

Canute on the otherhand is in a position for policy and to outlaw such crimes. Going against traditional Viking culture. But he isn't above terror tactics.

The author sometimes takes breaks too. Hox will surely scanlate as soon as new material comes out, in the meantime you can go this blog and check out the other series he is translating.

There is a chapter this month as far as I can tell, it's just late. Wouldn't be the first time.

Well, it's out now. Not a terribly interesting chapter... this arc is starting to drag out too much.

How? It hasn't even been 10 chapters since the prologue ended. I think it just seems so long because the chapters release so slowly. But I'd rather have a nice fleshed out return of Thorfinn then have it quick and half assed.

I thought it's been longer than that... almost been a year since this arc started. You're right, it's because the chapters are released slowly, but also because they don't have a lot of pages lately. That's why it seems so slow to me.

Rather, I think the author has been playing too much Farmville for the last year.

Only 16 pages...orz

I wonder if something's going with Yukimura-sensei lately. Well, not much to say about this chapter as nothing much happened. I was a little surprised by the revelation at the end, let's see where that will bring us...

Not only did Yukimura Makoto get sick, his wife gave birth last month, so he had to take a break for a while. Last I heard, everything is fine now and the manga should be back next month.

And god damnit, I saw a new post and thought "FINALLY A NEW CHAPTER! YES!"

Then nothing. You have just ruined my day. Well morning...USA is losing so that will make it better.

A lot of "monthly" seinen are plagued by short chapters and late releases. =(

Fullmetal Alchemist easily had the best record of any monthly serialization. Always on time, and always at least 30 pages.
