What to Know About Vinland Saga
If you are not familiar with the series at all, you can always catch up. Vinland Saga began as a manga under Makoto Yukimura back in 2005 and is ongoing today. With over seven million copies sold globally, the manga is a solid seller for its publisher Kodansha, and its anime was a huge hit following its debut in 2019. Originally, Wit Studio oversaw the historical epic, but Studio MAPPA has since taken over the anime. So if you like the company's work, you will find MAPPA all over season two.
Want to know more about Vinland Saga? You can read up on the series' official synopsis below:
"As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band's leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery...the land Leif called Vinland."
