After his father's death and the destruction of his village at the hands of English raiders, Einar wishes for a peaceful life with his family on their newly rebuilt farms. However, fate has other plans: his village is invaded once again. Einar watches helplessly as the marauding Danes burn his lands and slaughter his family. The invaders capture Einar and take him back to Denmark as a slave.

Einar clings to his mother's final words to survive. He is purchased by Ketil, a kind slave owner and landlord who promises that Einar can regain his freedom in return for working in the fields. Soon, Einar encounters his new partner in farm cultivation—Thorfinn, a dejected and melancholic slave. As Einar and Thorfinn work together toward their freedom, they are haunted by both sins of the past and the ploys of the present. Yet they carry on, grasping for a glimmer of hope, redemption, and peace in a world that is nothing but unjust and unforgiving.

Really recommend both manga and the anime. Vinland saga really conveys its message pretty well and also life-changing personally for me, the character development of Thorfinn from season 1 to season 2 is drastic but also captivating. The pacing in season 2 may be slower and less action packed but the character writing really makes up for it

The show really delves in to the deepest inhumane side of humanity, but there's always a glimmer of hope amidst all this mess that humans have created. Vinland Saga season 2 beautifully portrays Thorfinn's journey of hatred and redemption, exploring themes of death, destruction, despair, and ultimately, redemption

Mixed Feelings
I'll just get this out of the way: this Vinland Saga season is either so intellectually crafted that my pea brain could not understand its perfection, or it is really just overrated by the community.

I get the point that Thorfinn develops in a fascinating way, reaching a conclusion that most people are afraid of facing, but I felt like it was a bit forced. Yes, the events of the first season (especially the ending) are impactful in many ways, both to Thorfinn and to the reader, and the fact that Thorfinn's father was how he was has influenced his mentality. But it just feels ...

The audience’s reception of Vinland Saga S2 has been pretty bipolar. On one hand, we have the fans saying Thorfinn has had fantastic character development and is now a very wise and mature figure, while on the other hand, critics say this season was slow and boring like a farming simulator. However, very few people seem to share my main issue with the show.

Thorfinn is a hardcore pacifist, which is alright, but the show tries to present him and his philosophy as *THE* right way to live your life, and that anyone who uses violence has yet to come to the “enlightenment” that Thorfinn has ...
