Vinland Saga is based on a manga by Makoto Yukimura, initially published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine. In late 2005 the manga moved to seinen magazine Afternoon, where it’s still being serialized. The story is a dramatization of real-life history and it focuses on Thorfinn Karlsefni Thórdarson, who is given a sullen personality and revenge goal.
An anime adaptation by WIT Studio aired from July to December 2019 and had 24 episodes. Survive Said The Prophet and Man with a Mission performed the opening songs, titled “Mukanjyo” and “Dark Crow,” respectively. Aimer and Milet sang the ending themes – “Torches” and “Drown.”
