5 years of great anime!

Another phenomenal Meganime Pick!

Vinland Saga

As the winter temperatures drop, we're heating things up with another fire pick, as part of our 5 years of great anime. Adapted from the manga, Vinland Saga was an action packed masterpiece of 2019 created by the wildly profitable studio, WIT. (Which brought us Attack on Titan, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Seraph of the End) Vinland Saga follows the historic journey of Vikings from the icy fjords of Norway to the British Isles and beyond to the mythical Vinland.

 

Thors Snorresson, known for his bravery and legendary strength, abandons a sea battle to flee to Iceland with his wife Helga. For 15 years Thors lived in peace with his wife and two children, until Jomsviking   Floki locates the former in Iceland and pressures Thors to once again take up his sword for the king. Little does Thors know that Floki is seeking to murder the former Jomsviking for his desertion 15 years earlier.

The plot is centered around Thors' son, Thorfinn who is a child at the beginning of the story and grows in size, age and maturity throughout this epic anime. This anime provides a lot of historically accurate depictions of Vikings and their quest for the mythical land known as Vinland.

 

The action is consistent throughout and brutal at times, with the perfect balance of drama to keep you watching. We previously reviewed and picked this anime when it began airing in July of 2019. (You can read our original review here) With 24 episodes, the story progresses quick out of the first few episodes but settles in a steady pace thereafter. It was well received by audiences and critics alike and was an easy choice to place this on our list of 5 years of great anime.

Vinland Saga is expected to have a second season as teased by director, Shuhei Yabuta through his Twitter account. So if you enjoy action, drama and of course, Vikings, you're going to enjoy watching Vinland Saga with us.

This will be the final week to check out our Christmas anime, so be sure to watch them before they are gone. Wondering what we have coming up next week?

Our next addition to our 5 years of great anime with move out of the historic genre and into the SUPERNATURAL!
