liked the time skip since he will be training for 10 years it is not that necessary to read about the ten years. I was surprised about his weapon choice for now, but it makes sense he have 4% roman blood. And Kars could have given that advice earlier right? not when all of them will go to new clans.
Ah liking a girl for ten years without any progress or hardly any reason to like her besides she looks nice. Would be interesting if it takes awhile for the mc to find someone he sticks with rather than finding the one at the first try. Makes it more interesting and feels more realistic in my opinion. With this viking setting it can cause many things to happen like disease, killed, betrayel ect till he sticks with one or none (take the Vikings tv show as reference as I liked how it balanced it).
