Vinland Saga is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura. The series is set in the 11th century and follows the life of Thorfinn, a young Viking boy who embarks on a journey of revenge against Askeladd, the leader of a mercenary group that killed his father. Along the way, Thorfinn becomes embroiled in a larger conflict between England and Denmark, and begins to question the morality of his violent way of life.
The manga was first published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2005 and ended in 2019. It has since been collected into 24 tankōbon volumes. The series has been well-received for its complex characters, detailed artwork, and exploration of historical themes.
An anime adaptation produced by Wit Studio and directed by Shūhei Yabuta premiered in July 2019. The second season of the anime premiered in January 2021 and is being produced by MAPPA. The anime is available for streaming on Netflix and Crunchyroll. The series has also inspired various video games and merchandise.
