MAPPA is responsible for producing the second season of the Vinland Saga anime television series. Despite the change in studio, the majority of the previous season’s production staff were retained for the new season.
The series is directed by Shhei Yabuta, with Hiroshi Seko composing the series, Takahiko Abiru designing the characters, and Yutaka Yamata composing the music.
The season primarily focuses on Einar, an English slave, as he meets the protagonist, Thorfinn, while working on a farm one year after the events of the first season.
Vinland Saga Story
The Vinland Saga is a historical Viking epic written by Makoto Yukimura that follows the life of Thorfinn, a young but skilled warrior in a group of mercenaries led by the Viking Askeladd in 1013 A.D.
Thorfinn joins the mercenaries, not because he enjoys plundering and pillaging, but because he vows vengeance against Askeladd for the murder of his father years ago.
Thorfinn waits years to exact his revenge, but when the Danish prince is kidnapped and Askeladd takes action, Thorfinn’s life is irrevocably altered as he becomes entangled in a much larger tale of vengeance.
The story, characters, and historical accuracy of 11th-century England are lauded by critics for their depth in Vinland Saga.
The original manga has 26 volumes and is serialized in Monthly Afternoon in Japan.
The creator of the series, Yukimura, is committed to making the story as historically accurate as possible; many plot elements are derived from the period’s folklore.
The adaptation was announced in March 2018 and broadcast in 2019.
Wit Studio, known for its work on Spy x Family and Attack on Titan, is responsible for the animation of the first season.
