Inspired by Makoto Yukimura’s historical Japanese manga series of the same name, ‘Vinland Saga’ is an action-adventure anime that recounts a story of revenge, hatred, war, and self-discovery. The show revolves around Thorfinn, a young inhabitant of a harsh and frozen Icelandic village where war has become commonplace and death looms over peoples’ heads every day. It is no surprise that tales of finding the legendary land of Vinland which is supposedly warm, fertile, and peaceful was quite common when Thornfinn was growing up. Unfortunately, as the war between the Danes and the English got out of hand, the influence of the viking mercenaries increased.
The violent and unforgiving conditions created the unfortunate circumstances in which Thorfinn lost his father. This marked the beginning of Thorfinn’s journey to avenge his death and makes peace with himself in the process. First released on July 8, 2019, the anime is all set to return for with its second installement. In case you wish to watch it, then here’s all the streaming and other details you are going to need.
