According to sources, Vinland Saga, a historical manga series set in Japan, will be renewed for a second season. The production of Animanga has already begun. Shuhei Yabuta, the director of the next Vinland Saga sequel, revealed in an interview that the next plot arc in the series plays an important role in the franchise’s history.
“Thorfinn’s adventure will continue despite this enormous calamity,” Wit Studio director Shuhei Yabuta wrote in the anime finale when it aired in Japan. Vinland Saga Season 2 will begin development on July 7, 2021, according to Twin Engine.
According to recent sources, MAPPA, a well-known Japanese animation studio, is currently producing Vinland Saga Season 2 instead of WIT Studio. Anime fever just tweeted that “Vinland Saga Season 2 will be released shortly,” despite the lack of an official announcement. Another rumour indicates that the core cast from Season 1 will return for Season 2.
The plot’s breadth, on the other hand, was the series’ most defining feature. A story that is too big for a season.
To cover as much content as possible, a 25-episode season was required.
Since the end of Season 1, fans have been eagerly anticipating Season 2.
Many weebs are anticipating the next episode, which is expected to take the story even farther.
Is ‘Vinland Saga’ Season 2 coming out soon?
The existence of a second season has been confirmed, although no release date has been announced.
From July 7 through December 29, 2019, NHK General TV in Japan broadcasted the first anime. We may assume that the anime has been secretly renewed for 2020 because development has already begun, which is why we now have the official teaser.
Manga creator Makoto Yukimura announced the second season of the anime in July 2021.
The Plot of Season 2 of the Vinland Saga
The first season ended with a big turning point for each of the protagonists. Since his father’s death, Thorfinn has been hell-bent on vengeance. After a confrontation with Askeladd, he finally got his chance to avenge his father’s murder. Thorfinn, on the other hand, isn’t quite ready to take on the task of avenging his father’s murderer just yet. The three of them had been working for Prince Canute of Denmark for quite some time. They banded together to depose King Sweyn and replace him with Canute.
When the Danish king chose to invade Wales, Askeladd was caught in the midst. Askeladd assassinated King Sweyn in order to grab the throne for himself, allowing Canute to reign.
Thorfinn was taken aback when Askeladd died, seeing the man he’d wanted to avenge for so long. Thorfinn was carried to an unknown location before he could harm the newly-crowned King Canute.
We can anticipate the anime to stay faithful to its source material and show us more of Canute’s journey when it returns in the second season.
What will be the focus of Season 2 of the Vinland Saga?
Season 1 of “Vinland Saga” ended with a whimper for both the characters and the audience. Askeladd, Thorkell, and Thorfinn plotted to depose King Sweyn and replace him with the Danish Prince Canute. To give Canute the opportunity to take power, Askeladd pretended to be insane and beheaded the king. Thorfinn’s long-held thirst for vengeance was thwarted when he lost control and was taken away to an unknown location.
Following this occurrence, the manga experiences a time jump, which is a major turning point in the story. Thorfinn had been sold into the Scandinavian slave trade decades later. His will to live and his purpose in life were both gone. Slave Thorfinn is powerless to resist his masters until he meets Einar, a fellow stowaway. They work together to gain their release and start a new life in peace. Assuming that the anime’s narrative stays true to the source material, viewers can expect to witness these and other events unfold as Thorfinn rediscovers his life’s purpose.
