Young Thorfinn grew up listening to the stories of old sailors that had traveled the ocean and reached the place of legend, Vinland. It's said to be warm and fertile, a place where there would be no need for fighting—not at all like the frozen village in Iceland where he was born, and certainly not like his current life as a mercenary. War is his home now. Though his father once told him, "You have no enemies, nobody does. There is nobody who it's okay to hurt," as he grew, Thorfinn knew that nothing was further from the truth.

The war between England and the Danes grows worse with each passing year. Death has become commonplace, and the viking mercenaries are loving every moment of it. Allying with either side will cause a massive swing in the balance of power, and the vikings are happy to make names for themselves and take any spoils they earn along the way. Among the chaos, Thorfinn must take his revenge and kill the man who murdered his father, Askeladd. The only paradise for the vikings, it seems, is the era of war and death that rages on.

After Wit Studio's incredible job with Attack on titan, they are back this time to tackle a manga that is often compared with the likes of Vagabond and Berserk and was once thought unadaptable.

Are you interested in Vikings and Norse mythology? Do you want stunning animated action scenes? Good world-building? Great character development? If so, then wait no more as you are bound to enjoy this series.

The very first scene of the series sets you in the mood and gets you immersed in the story–from the stunning visuals, gorgeous artwork to the ruthless, merciless and outstanding action-packed scenes and astonishing directing. The plot is based read more

Every. Damn. Time.

You hear a ton of hype for a series, assume it must be good, check it out - and it’s a “transitional” (aka midwit) shlock. Meaning, a series that 15 y.o. think is really smart and mature because its themes are more complex and nuanced than the kids show they’ve experienced so far, yet at the same time is familiar (read: cliched and primitive) enough to not alienate its target audience. Which in the end makes it the same juvenile cheese-fest anyway. Here is a bunch of its massive flaws:

1. The title would make you think this is a story about vikings. Yeah, read more

Anime series that are exclusively aimed for adult audience have been disappearing from this medium faster than top anime lists on the Internet have been overtaken by overrated seasonal garbage. That's quite a tempo. Long gone are those days when maturity meant more than throwing in couple gore scenes and tagging the production with an R. Vinland Saga is not a blast from the past. It won't automatically please every soul that mourns for what anime once was. Nevertheless, Vinland Saga is already one of the most successful series from this ongoing decade when it comes to combining maturity with mainstream appeal.

First of all, this is an unbiased review from someone who hasn’t read the manga – so don’t expect a perfect score as of now.

Vinland Saga was one of my most hyped anime from the time when it was first announced, especially the studio behind one my favorite series, SnK. Currently as of episode 6, I have to say that this is the Berserk Adaptation we deserved. From the gorgeous background art to an incredible direction, WiT Studio deserves every bit of appreciation. Even the filler episodes didn’t feel pointless, it pretty much helped a lot in developing/setting up the characters especially Thorfinn.
