Is Askeladd A Villain? – Vinland Saga Season 1 Review

In Thorfinn’s eyes, Askeladd would be the villain of Vinland Saga’s story. What if instead Askeladd turned out to be a man of integrity working toward peace?

Is Askeladd truly the villain of Vinland Saga’s story? Or rather, is Askeladd a man who used his wit and cunning to become the hero he needed his younger self to see? We will explore all of this and more in our Vinland Saga Season One review.

Sorry About the Delayed Posts

Just a quick update on why my weekly anime and kdrama episode reviews have been delayed.

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to write a quick note mentioning that I intend on catching up on the weekly shows I am late on. I’ve had a lot of things going on in my personal life and it finally seems like something that has been plaguing my family for years may soon be resolved.

I can’t go into specifics, but due to increased stress, I haven’t been able to focus long enough to write. I did watch 2/3 of the previous episodes of Trolley, and Blue Lock Ep 14. I just need to finish writing and editing those things, then get into Tokyo Revengers S2, the AoT trailer (and my theory posts), and finish watching season 1 of Vinland Saga so that I can talk about Season 2 on a weekly basis like I planned months ago.

I don’t usually make posts like this, but I just wanted to let you all know that I’m not intentionally trying to cover a ton of shows and then not following through due to boredom, laziness, or anything along those lines.

I truly enjoy everything I’m watching right now (minus Takemichi getting his ass beat every episode of Tokyo Revengers) and want to cover everything on time but things beyond my control (or understanding) have diverted my attention elsewhere these last few weeks.

Anyway, that’s all I wanted to say ☺

Is Dr Tenma or Johan the Real Monster? 

Dr. Kenzo Tenma leads a sophisticated lifestyle as a neurosurgeon in Germany. Will saving a young boy named Johan ruin his life and unleash a dangerous Monster?

Have you ever watched something that terrifies you, and excites you at the same time? 

This is a horrible show with horrible people, but I am enjoying every single moment of it. I know that may be pretty trashy to say – rather openly admit – but I’ve got to be honest with myself.
