I will just say this (pretty sure James would agree too), wasting my precious time on Dragon’s Dogma have made me appreciate shows like Vinland Saga even more

With every passing day I realize how absurdly incredible Vinland Saga is. We took it for granted, man.

Vinland Saga had the same magic of Game Thrones where it made you care about truly awful people.

Mercilessly killing innocents on the one hand, while desperately clinging to some shred of their humanity on the other.

Dragon's Dogma is a bit different where you're watching the descent of the main character into amorality. But it's bumpy, and not always portrayed well.

The payoff in the Gluttony episode was mostly flashback'd and inferred. I didn't understand why we couldn't have just seen that sequentially to everything else.

We are getting a season 2 right?

Makoto Yukimura has been strongly hinting about a Season 2, which is a very good sign, at least

Dexter's Laboratory Episode 34 says otherwise......granted that was written by a 6 1/2 yo but still.
