Vinland Saga (Japanese: ヴィンランド・サガ, Hepburn: Vinrando Saga) is a Japanese historical
manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura. The series is
published by Kodansha, and was first serialized in the youth-targeted Weekly
Shōnen Magazine before moving to the monthly manga magazine Monthly Afternoon, aimed
at young adult men.
Thorfinn pursues a journey with his father's killer in order
to take revenge and end his life in a duel as an honorable warrior and pay his
father a homage.
Vinland Saga sets the stage by mostly taking place in the
1,000s in Nordic, and very much into Viking, culture.
Vinland Saga focuses on the age of Vikings. Vinland Saga
managed to show fans the Vikings' fierce battles and the conquering of England
by the Danish armies.
Based on a critically acclaimed manga by Makoto Yukimura, this
Amazon Prime exclusive follows Thorfinn, a young Viking warrior who is
dedicated to avenging his father's demise.
