Season 1 of the anime was first released in July 2019. Anime creator Makoto Yukimura launched the series in 2005 in Kodansha Weekly Magazine. However, the series was moved from Kodansha to Afternoon that same year. The series currently has a circulation of over 7 million copies. The popularity of the series is present not only in Japan but worldwide. International fans are already looking forward to streaming the new season. For more details on the new season, read on to find out more.
Vinland Saga Season 2: Official Announcement
Twin Engine streamed a new trailer for the new season on Monday, revealing a preview and the closing theme song. LMYK will perform the final theme song “Without Love”. The cast from the first season will also return for this new season. Among the returning cast members are Yuto Uemura, Kensho Ono and Akio Ohtsuka, who will play Thorfinn, Canute and Thorkell. In addition, Yoji Ueda will also return to voice the character of Leif Ericson.
New cast members for the second season were also announced. Shunsuke Takeuchi, Mayumi Sako and Yuu Hayashi will join the cast as Einar, Arnheid and Olmar. Other new cast members include Fuminori Komatsu, Taiten Kusunoki, and Mugihito. They will express the characters of Snake, Thorgil and Sverkel. Staff from the first season, including the director, series screenwriter and music composer, will also return for this new season.
Season 2 of the anime will follow the manga’s slave arc. It is speculated that it will reveal Thorfinn’s new side and share his pain at being enslaved. At the same time, Canute could negatively affect the story for Season 2. With only two arcs left for the remaining anime, the story will be tight and crisp. Right now, fans are eyeing the Slave Arc with keen eyes.
This is the first time we see Thorfinn walk through the life of a slave. This chapter will not only mold Thorfinn into a man of justice, but we will also see the changes in him as a leader.
