Vinland Saga: Staff of Season 1 and Season 2!


Makoto Yukimura is the author and illustrator of the Vinland Saga historical manga series. The series is published by Kodansha and was originally serialized in the youth-targeted Weekly Shonen Magazine before switching to the young adult men-targeted Monthly Afternoon manga magazine.

Its chapters have been collected in twenty-six tankbon volumes as of May 2022. Kodansha USA has been allowed to publish the Vinland Saga in English. The term evokes associations with Vinland as described in two Norse sagas.

Vinland Saga, on the other hand, opens in an England ruled by the Danes at the beginning of the eleventh century and focuses on the Danish invasion of England, sometimes known as Vikings.

The story combines a dramatization of King Cnut the Great’s rise to power with a revenge plot centered on the historical explorer Thorfinn, the son of a murdered ex-warrior who serves under a group of mercenaries responsible for the murder; the story progresses through several story arcs before culminating in an expedition to Vinland.

From July through December of 2019, NHK General TV broadcasted a 24-episode anime television series adaption by Wit Studio. A second season, animated by MAPPA, will be broadcast in January 2023 on Tokyo MX and BS11.

As of July 2021, around 5.5 million copies of Vinland Saga were in circulation. The series received the 36th Kodansha Manga Award for Best General Manga in 2012. The anime adaption of The Vinland Saga is regarded as one of the best anime series of 2019.
