Vinland saga is Makoto Yukimura's flagship manga. The action takes place in northern Europe in the 11th century with a special, even historical focus on the exploits of the Vikings. We looked at the parallels in the specific Vinland saga and Viking history.

Shuhei YubataVinland Saga's anime recorder, comments bluntly on the current problems in the anime industry, stating that industry insiders should work much harder to focus on generating original ideas.

"We've been doing the same thing for 30 or 40 years, not because it's the right thing to do, but as a result of misleading craftsmanship and individualism,” says Yubata. 'L'The Japanese animation industry is not creative at all now and we need to be aware of that. Work hard to create an environment where new challenges can be met to create new opportunities for success for a broader market'. Shuhei has also promised that he will put himself to the test once his current workload is lighter.

Wit Studio and Studio MAPPA are collaborating on the production of second season of Vinland Saga. The first, made entirely by Wit Studio, was a success that expanded the franchise to the attention of the general public. Our Vinland Saga Season 1 review goes into more detail.
