Vinland Saga is a Japanese historical manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura. The series is published by Kodansha and was first serialized in the boys’ youth-targeted manga magazine Weekly Shnen Magazine before moving to the monthly manga magazine Monthly Afternoon, which is aimed at young adult men.
As of May 2022, its chapters had been collected in 26 tankbon volumes. Kodansha USA has acquired the English-language rights to Vinland Saga.
When is Vinland Saga: Season 2 Coming Out?
Vinland Saga: Season 2 was announced in July 2021, and it is currently scheduled to begin airing on January 9th, 2023. It has also been confirmed that there will be 24 episodes, which means that many manga chapters will be covered.
The animation for Vinland Saga: Season 2 was originally supposed to be done by Studio Wit, but the project has now been taken over by Studio MAPPA.
The season’s official trailer is now available on YouTube and Crunchyroll, but that’s not all. A key visual depicting the new story characters has also been revealed to add spice to the proceedings. MAPPA appears to do Yukimura’s manga art justice.
What is Vinland Saga: Season 2 About? (Spoiler Alert)
We expect Vinland Saga: Season 2 to adapt the entire second arc of the manga, the Slave Arc, as the first season covered the entire War Arc, from Thorfinn’s bitter childhood to Askeladd’s sudden demise.
Thorfinn is sold into slavery at this point in the manga as retribution for his attack on Prince Canute. Thorfinn enraged that his life’s purpose, to kill Askeladd, had been taken away by a naive prince, began throwing his hands in all directions.
Thorfinn meets Einar while being enslaved, and the two work together to free themselves from their unsettling fate. Canute, on the other hand, has now ascended to the throne, and he sets his vision of creating a utopia on Earth in motion.
It’ll be incredible to see such an emotional part of the plot unfold in Vinland Saga: Season 2, so mark your calendars for January 2023, as that’s when you’ll see Thorfinn again.
Vinland Saga Season 2 Cast
As far as we know, the main cast of Vinland Saga will remain largely unchanged. Some new characters will undoubtedly be introduced, but the main cast will remain largely unchanged until the end.
This is why we believe that the main voice cast will return not only for the second season but also for any potential future seasons, as is an unwritten rule in modern-day anime adaptations.
