Normanni - Vinland Saga #7 | with Madara's Daughter

In the latest episode of the Anime to Z podcast, hosts Che Lingo (rapper, musician, anime lover) and Bec Hill (comedian, writer, anime-curious) continue on their epic odyssey discussing the highs, lows and hijinks of historical anime Vinland Saga. 

Che and Bec discuss their ideal winter retreat, the meaning of the Thorfinn’s ‘Naruto run’ and more broadly, why anime tropes becomes tropes. And stayed tuned to find out which moment in this episode Bec was not prepared for and why Thorfinn’s fighting style is one of Che’s favourites in all anime, ever. 

Plus they are joined by anime lover and cosplayer Madara’s Daughter who clarifies the difference between a ‘weeb’ and an ‘otaku’, and shares which character from Vinland Saga she would most like to cosplay as.

Askeladd withdraws temporarily from the war against England. While searching for a new source of income, he encounters a skirmish among the Franks and hatches a plot to steal their treasure. Askeladd sends 16 year old Thorfinn, who has grown up into a cold-hearted Viking, ahead as a messenger.
