As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery … the land Leif called Vinland.
The Vinland Saga TV anime is directed by Shuhei Yabuta and features animation production by Wit Studio. The series began broadcasting in Japan on the NHK network in July 07, 2019, and Vinland Saga is also streamed in Japan and in other world markets on Amazon Prime Video.
