Inspired by Makoto Yukimura’s historical Japanese manga series of the same name, Vinland Saga is an action-adventure anime that tells a story of revenge, hatred, war and self-discovery. The series revolves around Thorfinn, a young resident of a harsh and frozen Icelandic village where war has become commonplace and death looms over people’s heads every day. So it is not surprising that tales of the legendary land of Vinland, said to be warm, fertile and peaceful, were rife during Thorfinn’s childhood. Unfortunately, the war between the Danes and the English spiraled out of control and the influence of Viking mercenaries increased.
The violent and ruthless conditions led to the unfortunate circumstances in which Thorfinn lost his father. This marks the beginning of Thorfinn’s journey to avenge his death and make peace with himself in the process. The anime was first released on July 8th, 2019 and now returns with its second part. If you want to watch it, here are all the streaming and other details you need.
What is Vinland Saga Season 2 about?
In Season 1, after his father’s murder, Thornfinn sets out to exact revenge on Askeladd. Interestingly, while he grew up with the leader of the mercenary gang, things took an interesting turn when his nemesis died. This meant Thornfinn’s purpose in life was suddenly snatched away, and to make matters worse, he was punished with enslavement for the crime of attacking Canute.
Season 2 of the anime will focus on Ketil’s court arc or slave arc, in which Thornfinn becomes a victim of the Scandinavian slave trade. As previously mentioned, after Askeladd’s execution, he will go through an existential crisis. His life, marked by war and violence, will suddenly change radically as he stops striving for a better future. Toiling in the fields according to his master’s wishes, Thornfinn finds renewed zest for life until he meets Einar, a slave like himself. This is the beginning of a new journey where Thornfinn finds a new goal.
