The conversation is done really well there. Presenting things from different perspective. That many of the ambition of both Kiroranke and Wilk are both noble, and selfish at the same time.

I hope Asirpa finds a way to preserve her culture without war, I think that would be a more fitting way for her to protect ancient traditions and stuff.

I understand what the father of Koito said but even him didn't want to do a war like wilk. Sugimoto is right. She don't have to do this and also, we all know that Kirokanke manipulate her to think it's the only way. Also, war means a lot of deaths and destruction. Except Ogata because he is a crazy bastard, I'm sure that they all want to go back to their old self even tsurumi who became the man he is because he lost his wife and baby.

Leaders have the duties to their people, they need to act and sacrifice to accomplish what other cant do, and sometimes they need to pass this to their children................... < THIS IS BULLSHIT if they fight and fail it is completely their fault children should not inherit the regrets of their parents, all this fancy speech of fighting to preserve culture or memories is just the way they use to guilt-trip people in continuing their little self righteous crusades.

The is yes and importance in preserving culture and memory but these assholes are so up the asses in death that they only think in war, they are only trying to get a little kick of satisfaction before they die, if Asirpa wants to protect what she loves it is her decision of how to do it.

If it leads at some point to death and destruction it should be complete of her own volition and will, not this soft-spoken manipulation these assholes pass as righteous justification.

I am so glad he told her about it, that was bothering me but now that everything has been said, she can make the decision to keep going.

Sugimoto told it to her straight! He may not be a parent, but he plays the role as a guardian figure well.

I'm torn, being a Native American... I feel for the Ainu position in society for I and my people are in the same boat...
But I also don't want Asirpa to wind up like myself either. But then if not her, then who?


Though as this is historical fiction, it is inevitable that she will not take up that revolution.

As someone who played GoW 4, I’ll just say my favorite quote that may be relevant...
“You must be better than me. Understand?”

I’m on Sugimoto’s side in this btw.

Sugimoto is much more of a father than Wilk ever was. He wants Asirpa to be what she is, a child. Move aside, Piccolo... Sugimoto has dethroned you as best manga adoptive dad.

@Sem At least with Tsurumi and the 7th division, she only needs to give them the key to the gold then goes back to her Kotan, Tsurumi doesn't need her for anything beyond that, unlike Kiroranke and Hijikata who need her to act as a figure for the Ainu revolution.

and then suddenly this becomes Vinland Saga post-prologue...?

Is this it?? Is this where Asirpa and Sugimoto begin to separate in their ways? Ideals man

Sugimoto calling out on a typical shounen trope. A person who makes sacrifices to convey a message or to prove a point isnt a hero. That person just essentially guilt tripping you to adopt their ideals.

The filmmakers having met Asirpa's parents a decade ago feels contrived, but it was definitely worth it because of how good this chapter is. I thought that Girel might have been related to the Partisans somehow and that he was trying to continue Kiroranke's work to get Asirpa on their side, but it looks like that's not the case. The last chapter makes it seem like he's French, but he doesn't look French, so I'm not sure.

This is that good shit.

I wonder what she can even do. How much of a choice she really has in this situation.

Even if she decides to give it up, everyone knows who she is and how integral she is to solving the mystery of the gold. Sugimoto and Tanigaki (and maaaaaybe Shiraishi) might be the only ones who are willing to fight for Asirpa to live peacefully. Most everyone else has been shown to be willing to manipulate her for their own ends.

Woah, they brought back that red carpet line from forever ago.
