After the successful delivery of the TV anime Vinland Saga in 2019 based on Makoto Yukimura‘s popular manga of the same name, fans have been eagerly waiting for a season 2 update.
Around the end of the millennium, Viking the mightiest but most atrocious tribe had been outbreaking everywhere. Thorfinn, the son of the greatest warrior, lived his childhood on the battlefield. He was seeking the land of reverie known as Vinland. This is the story of a true warrior in the age of turmoil.
According to a Tweet, which was written in English by the director on Twitter Yabuta, “season 2 plays a very important role in Vinland Saga,” meaning the director understands just how important the upcoming arc is to the broader story of the entire series. Luckily, Yabuta notes that he expects that “enough episodes” has been commissioned to showcase each character’s story arc “carefully.”
On September 22, the official Twitter account of Yukimura assured that season 2 won’t skip any material from the manga.
The official website released only a production confirmation announcement video for the upcoming Vinland Saga Season 2 TV anime. The 2minute video doesn’t reveal any major details about the plot but gives a recap of the iconic scenes of the first season.
