I never took into calcs because I'm not a calc person. I won't ignore them when people use them argument. I just concede or admit I don't understand them. Supersonic + - isn't that bit much for a series that has warriors with above human qualities but not reaching inhuman or superhuman feats.
For close combat, Thorfinn has done great in close combat with his knives against Askeladd, a sword wielder, and Thorkell, a giant who can throw a spear accurately over a wide distance and hack people with 2 axes. However, he did lose to both of them.
Looks like I made a bad thread again. I thought I knew Rurouni Kenshin, but I didn't take speed into account. I can be wrong.
I'll make the Vinland Saga manga discussion in the evening. I'll see you there. I thank you for checking out the anime and manga discussion threads. I wish more folks from the battle, RPG, and other forums hit them up. I'm promoting them everywhere and even in the battle threads. I hit flood fail just after creating a blog post and a battle thread. Anime Vice loves to mess with me.
