The Journey Begins (旅の始まり, Tabi no Hajimari) is the 8th chapter in the series.
Ari visits a sleepy Ylva at her home and promises to return from his conquest from England with a necklace for her. He also tries to ask her hand in marriage but is cut off by his mother who brings him his lunch. At the docks, Ari and Grimm quarrel with each other and Thors looks for his son Thorfinn but cannot find him. The boat sets sail and amid sailing, Thorfinn pops out of a barrel and runs over to the starboard side to empty his bladder. Instead of reprimanding his son, Thors laughs as his son is elated over the sea view.
