It feels like Kingdom and all those historic anime about great empires, but it's more like Arslan Senki in that it shows an ancient non-japanese story from a Japanese perspective. I think it will do great!

To be honest, I can see some similarities with Golden Kamui too. In the tone at least? Whatever the case, I'm not missing Vinland Saga for anything in the world!

Three Episode Impression

Those who consider themselves big fans of manga with historical themes have no doubt heard of Vinland Saga. This viking-themed manga series has wowed many readers with visceral action, beautiful art and a truly deep narrative that bleeds history and fiction together better than most. That’s why when Wit Studio announced there was an anime adaptation in the works, we knew they had a tough road ahead. Yet, if anyone could do it, it was them… and we clap our hands and raise our mead filled cups to you. Vinland Saga has truly been a visual treat boasting amazing animation, impressive care to stick to the source material, and some awe-inspiring voice work. Our first three episodes we binged (as they all came out in the same day) made for an exciting passage of time, and now we must wait just a few more days for episode 4. Basically, here’s our verdict of Vinland Saga so far: you absolutely must watch this show the moment you get a chance to!

He takes up weapons to board his father’s ship as a warrior, when...

Thorfinn (man)

Voice Actor: Yuuto Uemura


As a man, Thorfinn is the powerful successor of his father Thors, who was an amazing warrior. Making use of his small frame to maneuver in small circles quickly allows him to fight over extended periods of time. However, he’s short-tempered and has a habit of getting carried away.

Thors

Thors is Thorfinn’s father. He was a former commander of the Northern Atlantic’s most powerful team, the Jomsviking Warriors. He was fearfully referred to as the Troll of Jomsviking.

Now, he lives in a village in Iceland where he is well-loved by said village, living in peace. He does worry for his song Thorfinn, who wants to become a warrior.

Askeladd

Voice Actor: Naoya Uchida


The leader of an army consisting of 100 Vikings. He acts friendly toward everyone he meets, but in reality he is a cruel schemer who will do whatever it takes to achieve his own goals. His swordsmanship is top-notch. He is also talented at discerning people’s true natures.

Canute

A warlord with an extremely large build and inhuman strength. He always desires to fight opponents stronger than himself and loves battle so much that he purposefully defected to the enemy’s side. With his overwhelming strength and heroic character, he is a charismatic Viking leader.

Bjorn

Voice Actor: Hiroki Yasumoto


A veteran in Askeladd’s band of Vikings and his second in command. He does not like fighting to make a profit, but rather is a warrior who throws himself into battle because he enjoys killing.
