The public premiere of the full Vinland Saga 2 trailer was announced well in advance.On April 19, 2022, the designer of the Character/Main Director of the Animation

Abiro Takahiko

He confirmed that the actual production is still underway, but when he did not give any tip for the release date of the second season of Vinland Saga.

“Before I found out about it, much more time has passed since we announced the production of the season [Vinland Saga] 2,” he wrote on Twitter.”We are still moving day by day with anime production, so thank you for the slightly longer patience.”

In response to this tweet vinland saga season 2

director Shuuhei Yabuta

He said: “The day when the Viking era was supposedly started.”Historically, it is June 8, 793, so it turned out that it was irritated that the full premiere of the music video for the trailer of the 2 Vinland Saga season would take place on June 8, 2022.

A great change in the studio was also announced in advance.On May 3, 2022, Reddit users reported a discussion on Twitter between director Yabuta and Vinland Saga

mango creator Makoto Yukin

, place on May 1, 2022 during this Yukimura discussion

supposedly

He confirmed the earlier rumor that Vinland Saga Season 2 would change the studio, saying that he was overlooked by the fact that a team of animators “moved from Wit to Mapp”.

Even months before the discussion on Twitter, Spaces was believed that the rumor about the change of studio was credible, because employees who previously worked at Vinland Saga Season 1 in Wit Studio moved to the Mappa studio.For example, the director Yabuta moved to Mappa in May 2020 and worked on Attack on Titan: The Final Season, producing the first promotional video trailer before moving to the production of Vinland Saga Season 2.

Probably the mappa studio already has enough projects at full speed.Until February 2022, the studio has already announced Chainsaw Man, Jigokuraku, Dance Dance Danseur, Kakegurui Twin and Yuri on Ice.

Considering that the cinema cinema jujutsu Kaisen 0 in Japan broke the previous records set by the demon Slayer: Mugen Train, it was not surprising that the anime jujutsu kaisen from season 2 was confirmed that it would be in production in 2022.In addition, the release date of season 4 parts 4 Attack on Titan was also confirmed at 2023.

In response to the revelation of Yukimura, the director interrupted him and joked about the leak of secret information, which could lead to the cancellation of the second season.The director once again explained that the animal team would remain the same, which is the most important factor.

Director Yabuta has long been saying that the main staff creating Vinland Saga 2 will mostly be the same as the first season.

“Time passes very quickly.This year our team had many problems to solve and we made difficult decisions “,

The director wrote on Twitter

In July 25, 2021, “but fortunately the team’s composition is almost the same and we are motivated to concentrate for this season.”

In the discussion on Twitter in May 2022, the director revealed that he was in the middle of the preparation or editing of the Vinland Saga Season 2 PV trailer.Voice recording is also in progress since Yukimura dropped some of the seiyuus and noticed that Snake’s voice is very masculine and sexy.The second point is important because VA usually does not start work before the end of production.

In addition, the end of the Vinland Saga manga is approaching because it is in the last thread.Anime messages Twitter user

Competitors

He suggests that the Manga series can receive a “full adaptation”, which means that Mappa Studio will change the whole story to the full anime series.

This does not mean that the second season will be very long and will end the story.Instead, seasons 3 and 4 Vinland Saga appeared when Yukimura asked the director to do everything in his power, not only in the second, but also in the third and fourth season!

Remember that this is not the official confirmation of the 3rd and 4th season of Vinland Saga.It is possible that Yukimura only expressed the desire for the manga to be fully animated, and not that the manufacturer had already lit additional sequels for production internally.

It also categorically stated that the interpretation of the coma was “unfortunately false information”.The next day, the comji also directly

: “This can be a wrong translation, so don’t think too much about it.”

, The Vinland Saga Season 2 anime production committee will consist of Vinland Saga Mangaka Makoto Yukimura, publisher of Kodansha, Studio Mappa and Studio Kafka.Remember that this information has not been verified by the official source and should be treated as a rumor.

In the first half of February 2022, Animehype also claimed that soon the announcement of the trailer of season 2 Vinland Saga (PV) would appear.Of course, this did not happen, but it is possible that the work was delayed.

director Yabuta

He could discuss the announcement of the 2 Vinland Saga season when he mentioned the “unexpected situation” during ongoing work on the second season:

“An unexpected situation hit us.But now, thanks to the support of many people, we focus on working in a stable environment, “the director wrote on Twitter.”Some may think that the history of this season is not suitable for the Anime series, but I don’t.Certainly telling stories is unique.But this season is an important stage of the whole story.And I believe that this will make this anime unique. ”

The official announcement of the second season was announced during the 2nd anniversary of the Anime Vinland Saga on July 7, 2021.

“The second season of the anime Vinland Saga is in production.I am very happy that I can convey a message that fans expected, “wrote the creator of Vinland Saga

Makoto Yukimura

.”I can’t wait for the second season either.Let’s wait for the next messages together. ”

As Makoto-Sensei mentioned, the official Twitter account promises that additional messages will appear in the future.The date of this second announcement was not specified.

The solemn graphics were released by the director, character designer and the original manga creator.

On February 25, 2022, the director discussed the results of a fanart competition on the occasion of the manga, hosted by the Twin Engine producer.

“Thank you for your participation!I am glad that I see so many different fan works and I realized again that Vinland Saga is a manga loved all over the world, “he wrote on Twitter.”It takes so long to make the next season satisfactory.I would be grateful if you could wait a little longer for the next information! ”

At the beginning, the leak from the anime stated that the second season would come.For example

Pytrue

He wrote on Twitter that “Vinland [saga] S2 is in preparation.”Pytrue was also right in

claiming

that “Vinland Saga S2 unfortunately will not be in 2020”.

Why would the anime continuation be issued in 2022 and later?At that time, Pytrue claimed a gigantic reason, although it turns out that part of his theorem was incorrect (more details in the section with the release date below).

What’s more, the forecasts of the Vinland Saga Season 2 time frames were established before the pandemic of the coronavirus Sars-Cov-2 was overwhelmed by the world.

“Here is the story of a real warrior.”The assembly sequence from a special film clip definitely seemed to irritate the anime Vinland Saga Season 2. Source of the photo: Wit Studio

The good news is that the history of the manga about the historical discoverer of Thorfinnie is in the middle of the last arch of history and will probably not end in many years.This means that the Anime series can last for many seasons as a regularly renovated anime series.

The Japanese publisher Kodansha did everything possible for anime to be another big hit.Reviews and noise around the anime were definitely positive.The exclusive anime on Amazon Prime, Vinland Saga was mentioned next to the Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba), Fire Force (Enen No Shouboutai) and Dr.Stone as the best in the season.

This is a story about growing up on the background of the horrors of the Viking wars taking place at the turn of the 11th century.The first episode is dropped in the middle of the year 987 Battle of Hjörungavágr, but the general story is slow, which puts the building of characters and philosophy in the foreground.

Characters from Vinland Saga are based on historical relationships from this period, with the main hero Thorfinne based on the real explorer of Thorfinn Karlsefni.Leif is of course based on the historical Leif Erikson, an explorer, who in modern times is attributed to the discovery of the North American continent, where Vinland is located.Other characters are based on legends or invented, and the name Askladd is based on figures from Norwegian folklore, known for being smart.

As mentioned earlier, the studio forming the Vinland Saga 2 season has changed.The first season was produced by the famous Wit Attack on Titan studio.Studio Mad Box, Madhouse subsidiary, helped with special effects.

It was confirmed that Shuuhei Yabuta would return to direct the anime Vinland Saga Season 2. Yabuta also directed the excellent anime inuyashiki: Last Hero.The director has experience as a CGI artist and director CGI/3D (Attack on Titan), so it should not be surprising that CGI is widely used in battle scenes.

Animation director Hunter X Hunter Takahiko confirmed that Abiru will return as a character designer.

Banana Fish and Ajin: screenwriter Demi-Human Hiroshi Seko and Saga of Tanya The Evil screenwriter Kenta Ihara wrote the scenarios of the first season.The composer Tokyo Ghoul, Yutak Yamada, was responsible for the music.

The music opening the first season of Vinland Saga was “Mukanjyo” Survive Said The Prophet, and the final song was “Torches” by Aimer.

This article contains everything that is known about the Vinland Saga 2 season and all related messages.Therefore, this article will be updated over time about messages, rumors and analysis.Meanwhile, we will delve into what is certain.

Why the release date of the second season of Vinland Saga falls on the winter of 2023

Since the last update, the publisher of Kodansha, the manufacturer of Twin Engine, Mappa studio, or any company related to the production of anime officially confirmed the exact release date of Vinland Saga Season 2. Production of the continuation of Vinland Saga was announced on July 7, 2021.As predicted by the Anime Geek, the release date of Vinland Saga 2 was confirmed for the winter of 2023.

After the official confirmation of the message, this article will be updated about the relevant information.

From a financial perspective, Amazon probably paid a lot of penny so that Vinland Saga would become one of their exclusive products.Considering that revenues from streaming transmission are the most important factor affecting the chances of continuing Vinland Saga is probably a good thing.

The fact that Wit Studio has been chosen for initial adaptation is a reason to suspect that the Vinland Saga 2 season has already been planned for the future.As mentioned earlier, anime leaks claimed that the second season would be scheduled in a few years.

But why change studies at mappa?It just so happens that Wit Studio is very busy, so it makes sense that the start of the production of Vinland Saga S2 would start in 2021 in another company.

In 2020, Wit created an original story called The Great Pretender, and the first episode premiered in Japan at the beginning of June 2020 (the release date of the second season of Netflix Great Pretender was set at the end of 2020).

In 2021, Wit Studio released the memorable song by Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song Anime.In 2022, Wit issued an anime ranking of Kings, adaptation of the Manga series, and the release date of the anime Spy X Family also fell on 2022, not to mention Spy X Family Part 2. As for original stories, they plan a vampire Netflix in Garden, AnimeGrimm and Moonrise anime.

In May 2020, it was confirmed that Wit Studio did not Anyte the last season of Attack on Titan.Instead, Mappa Studio produces the last season of Sharingki No Kyojin with usually different staff.

Unfortunately, for the Anime, Pytrue message, this means that his claim about Vinland Saga 2 turned out to be untrue.In the past

claimed

that “the 2nd season of Vinland Saga is not [planned] for 2020 [so] that [Attack on Titan S4 can be done by WIT”.

This meant that the director of Vinland Saga, Shuuhei Yabuta, is now free from focusing only on Attack on Titan, because he was replaced by Takihiro Uezono.The director Yabuta was a 3D director in all Attack on Titan seasons except season 3: Part 1.

As mentioned earlier, in the autumn of 2020 the director collaborated with Mappa at Attack On Titan: The Final Season, but also early confirmed that he was working on an unnamed project.

Remember that anime studies often work on several projects at the same time.Because most anime creators are freelancers, the main staff Vinland Saga 2 will remain the same, but some of the smaller roles can be served by different people.

Considering that the work related to voice recording was confirmed at the beginning of May 2022, this is why the anime Geek predicted that the release date of Vinland Saga Season 2 will be in the winter of 2023.

Vinland Saga 2 was irritated by the main staff long before the official announcement

When the 24th episode was released, there were rumors that a film about Vinland Saga was announced.It’s not true.

It looks like rumors began when the official Vinland Saga account

Twitter

He said: “We have a special film for all viewers.”This tweet was a reference to

special clip

, which they published on Twitter/YouTube, not for a full -length film.

It is true that the “special film” clip definitely contains scenes from future story threads.In addition, the director of Wit Studio, Shuuhei Yabuta, also seemed to irritate anime fans on Twitter about Vinland Saga 2.

“This great incident changed everything for Thorfinn, but its history will continue!”

director

he wrote

.”I pray that he would meet many people and his eyes really opened at the sight of the vast world…. I hope that this brought benefits [to everyone] involved in [creating] this work and [I] hope that we will meet in a different job! ”

The preview of Vinland Saga Season 2 was even irritated by the director and the main director of the animation for almost a year.

In September 2020, the director

Shuuhei yabuta

He posted on Twitter three drawings of some of the main characters of Vinland Saga.He told his supporters that “there is a small Easter egg” and asked everyone to play it.

In the lower left corner of each graphics there were Nordic runes, and each symbol represents the sound of the English character.If you spell it, runes say “season second”.

There is also a Japanese text in which signs complain that you have to wait.

Thorfinn says: “How long do we have to wait?To which Askladd replies: “That’s why I hate children …” and Canute says: “It’s soon … I think …”

While the director definitely irritated with the second season of Vinland Saga, he also added a reservation by saying: “Whatever this is [Easter egg], there is no deep meaning …”

At the beginning of October 2020, the director

announced

that he will join the CG team in the Mappa studio to help them finish season 4 Attack on Titan (he will be the only recurring staff from Wit Studio).But he also announced that he has his own “own directorial title”, so he cannot “focus only on AOT”, which can be a reference to the fact that he will be directed by the anime Vinland Saga Season 2, because his commitment in any other project has not yet been confirmed.

On October 27, 2020, Wit Studio organized an online talk show, which discussed the production of anime Vinland Saga.In particular, the director said: “I think that most of the stories will concern the first season, but I would like to raise as many stories as possible, including our recent situation, so I would be grateful if you could look at!”

If the stories relate to the first season, do they plan the second season?The director answered fans’ questions with a tweet.

“My messages may not be satisfying, but that’s all I can tell you now,” yabuta

he wrote

. “I appreciate your understanding.We believe that this series will continue and we will continue to work on it!

He wrote on Twitter: “I am still involved in the production of Attack on Titan.And I will also take part in The Ancient Magus Bride as one of the employees of the Kafka studio.But there is one more job that I have to do the most.You know, my most important job.Today again the arms of the field. ”

In particular, Takahiko uses graphics in history about arable fields from the Vinland Saga 2 season as the background of his profile on Twitter.

It is possible that the anime production committee did not make a decision, so the director tried to gain support for the idea.Or, Vinland Saga Season 2 has already been secretly introduced into early production, but they were not allowed to talk about it yet.

Although most of the talk show was in Japanese, they made sure they were in English for information for international fans.During this section, the director presented the update of the 2nd season of Vinland Saga.

Manga Vinland Saga will end by 2024 with the final story?

The story of the anime is based on the Manga Vinland series by the writer and illustrator Makoto Yukimura.Manga began its series in 2005 as a weekly manga Shonen, but eventually went to Seinen’s monthly format at the end of the year.He usually publishes about 11 chapters a year.

In the discussion on Twitter in May 2022, Yukimura commented that he changed the publication from weekly to monthly, because he is a “very slow author”, and the last chapters in 2022 showed a lot of happiness since the upcoming chapters show pure reality.

From July 24, 2022, the series was ready for Vinland Saga Chapter 195: A thousand -year cruise, part 4. From May 23, 2022, the book tankobon was until the 26th volume of Vinland Saga.

In addition, the ending of Manga Vinland Saga is approaching because it is in the last thread.Based

estimates of Yukimura

made on November 10, 2019, Vinland Saga will end on or after chapter 216.

Starting from October 2013, the official English translation of Manga Vinland Saga began to be issued in North America by Kodansha USA.But the edition is supported completely differently than most manga editions in Japanese and English.The English numbering of volumes is different because every two Japanese volumes are connected into one collective book.

This unique release format means that the English version of Vinland Saga is not too far behind the Japanese version, although the numbers are lower.On December 14, 2021, Japanese volumes 23 and 24 were published as English volume 12.

In July 2021, a production company

Twin Engine

He noticed in a press release regarding the second season that Mang Vinland Saga exceeded 5.5 million copies in circulation.Manga Vinland Saga was almost dismissed in the US in half its broadcast due to the low level of readers, but loyal fans maintained Kodansha, and the anime increased the popularity of the series.

Twitter

Many years ago, the creator claimed that he aimed at volume 25 at the end of Manga Vinland Saga.Manga creators notoriously evaluate the length of their stories and it seems very likely that Makoto will cross his previous plans.

In an interview published on August 22, 2022, Makoto stated that the last chapter of Vinland Saga was coming when he was asked about the “road map” completion.

“About 25 years have passed since I became a manga artist, and my current wish is that children would become adults safely and draw Vinland Saga Property Until the Final Chapter,” Yukimura Said.”To Tell The Truth, There is not Much Left On The Roadmap.We are not that far away from the final instalment.The Roadmap Was Drawn Up Before The Serialization Started, But the Details Are Different.There are many characters that didn’t appear in the original plan.But I have been flexible in drawing the details accord to the situation.I have Recently Come will realize that it is better to leave some playing parts in Addition to the Solid Bones in that way. ”

So Far, The Manga’s Story Takes Place Before The Stories Told in the Actual Real-World Ilandic Vinland Saga.In November 2019, Makoto

Stated

That He Plans on Creating Four Major Story Arcs: War, Slave, Eastern Expedition, and the Final Vinland Arc.

The Eastern Expedition Arc Ended with Chapter 166 and Beginning with Vinland Saga Chapter 167 The Manga Creator Began Drawing the “Last Arc”.Although Makoto Did Not Set An Exact Target for the Vinland Saga Manga’s Ending, He Expects the Final Arc to Take “SEVERAL YEARS” to Create.The arc will exceed 50 chapters with over 1,000 pages.

Since the manga is release monthly that means makoto could reach the ending between may 2024 and july 2024 at the earliest barring any hiatus or delays.Since Each Manga Volume Has Eith 8 or 9 Chapters the Final Volume Could Be Volume 28 or 29 And the Book Would Likely release in late 2024 or early 2025.

Vinland Saga Manga Compared to the anime

Wit Studio Has Managed to Take The Beauty of the Vinland Saga Story and Enhance It with the Brutality of Animated Warfare.Although anime fandoms often deride the usage of cgi in animation, studio pulled it off in a way that hardly distracting.Plus, Can You Imagine The Budge IF The Whirling Camera of the Sea Battles Was All Hand-Matted?

“Before Christianity Spread, Apparently People Had No Sense of Resistance to Engaging in Violence.The Spread of Christianity Throughout Europe Was Just after the Period Depicted by The Vinland Saga.So they were that fly more Barbaric Before They Were Given a Broad Ethical View…. Due to the low worth of life, Violence Such as domestic violence was Rampant.I Believe That Vinland Saga Has Something to Dict About Violence Precisely Bcause of That Era. ”

Makoto Yukimura

OVERAll, The anime Presented the Story of the Manga Linearly with Careful Pacing That Allowed The Characters to Develop Fully.The story has been expanded upon in various ways, with some events reordered.

In fact, the epic opening scene showing thors waging war in the battle of hjörungavágr was an original scene in the anime.The Scene Provided Action Showcasing Thors ’Provess AS A Warrior While Also Diting Thors’ Motivation for Deserting The Jomvikings During Battle.The anime then jumped ahead several year in time.

Inspes, The Manga Did the Reverse.The Manga Opened the First Two Chapters by Showing An Older Thorfinn Assaulting A Fortress and Taking A Commander’s Head So He Head Win a Chance AT A Duel With Askladd.The Story POSED The Question of Why Thorfinn Would Seek Vengeance Against the Man He Working For.By the Ending of Chapter 2, The Manga Then Flashed Back 10 Years To When Leif Was Regaling The Children with Tales of His Sea Voyages to The West.

The anime also Introduced More Original Content in Episodes 5 and 6 by Showing More of Thorfinn’s Childhood, But then finally adapted chapters 1 and 2 with episodes 7 and 8.

“First, and you really happy to see a vinland saga that I didn’t know play out on screen.I Particularly Felt a Sense of Gratitude Regarding The Fifth and Sixth Episodes.Thorfinn is separated from His Father Thors at A Young Age and Ends Up Working for Askladd, But in the Manga, I Skipped Over What Happened Until Thorfinn Was Sixteen.The anime did a great job of showing the process of him growing up and filling in that gap, so and really appreciated it. ”

Makoto Yukimura

The anime even fleshed out the characterization of thorfinn by showing How His Desire for A One-on Duel Started with Him Attempting to Attack Askladd in His Sleep.In the manga, askeladd said he didn’t fear ambush in his sleep.He Knew Thorfinn Was a Prideful Warrior Who “WOURD RATHER DIE THAN Do Something Like That.”

From There the anime Started to follow the manga in a more straight-forned fashion.The Most Significant Change Was Expanded Characterization for Asgeir and Original Content for Thorkell.The anime Also Had Thorfinn Waking Up in the Barn Because of Loud Music Whereas The Manga Had Askladd’s Men Raping An English Girl.

But vinland saga episode 20 and beyond is promising to be diffferent from the manga lased on comments from studio director shuuhei yabuta.On November 25, 2019, he

noted

On Twitter that Since “There is no guarantee that there will be a continuation [Vinland Saga Season 2], IT [the First Season] must be made satisphying by itself.Ite’s a mistake to think that you can enjoy it simply by making it formless, so you must do everything you feel is necessary. ”

The Director also Revealed That “There will be some adjusts from the manga in future episodes.”He Explained that the studio Staff Thought the Changes “Necessary” in Order to “Enjoy this series as an Independent content.I hope you enjoy our attempt! ”

At the same time, The Director Promised That The Ovell “Outline Will Not Change”.That probably means that the anime’s final scene will remain the same as the manga, which isn’t too surprising the ending of the war prologue arc sets up the ways for the next story arc.After all, The Director Doesn’t Want the anime to Diverge So Badly From The Manga Source Materia that Vinland Saga Season 2 Became Impossible.


Wit Managed to Capture Perfectly The Betrayal and Tragic Angish Thorfinn Felt from Losing His Entire PurPose in Life.Now, all thorfinn has is askeladd’s last words.Pic Credit: Wit Studio

One Significant Change to The Manga’s Depiction of Events Was To Show A Montage of Characters in the Dagger’s Reflection Rather than Simpus Focus On Thorfinn’s Broken Visage During The Ending of Episode 24.To this critical juncture, it was also also the future.

Wit Studio Went of Its Way to Tease The Future Crew Since the Montage Shows Einar On A Boat, Which Sort of Makes Sense Because He’ll Play A Role in Vinland Saga Season 2. But the Montage Even Dipped Down Into The Eastern Expedition arc arcBy Showing Hild in the Mountains and Gudrid on the Beach, Which is Odd Since Those Characters Don’t Even Show Up Until After Chapter 100, The Ending of the Slave Arc.

Due to all the original content, the anime Had only adapted 20 chapters by the ending of episode 10. By Episode 18 The anime Had Reached Chapter 36, Which Featured a Fight Betheen Thorfinn and Captain Thorkell.

Based on This Pacing, Wit Studio Targeted Chapter 54 of Volume 8 (English Volume 4) for the Ending of Vinland Saga Episode 24. That Offers The Best Stopping Point with the Story Arc Focused On Askladd (The First Story Arc Called War Is Considered AMere Prologue!).

The Good News is that the next manga story arc provides the perfect number of chapters for vinland season 2 to be a two-cour season yet again.Ite’s Possible Won’t Have to Use Original Content for the Second Season as Padding Since the 2nd Arc Is Shorter (46 Chapters Compared to the First Arc’s 54 Chapters).

Since the Third Story Arc, The Eastern Expedition Arc, Finished In November 2019 there are even enough chapters currently published for vinland saga season 3 to be produced.Howver, The Third Major Story Arc Is Long Enough (65 Chapters) That it might to be split up into separate anime Seasons (the Third Season Could Be Three Cours).

Better Yet, English-Only anime Fans Who Desire to Read Ahead of the Anime Can Dive Right in By Picking Up the English Volumes 5 Through 7. Start by Reading Chapter 55. The manga is avalailad digitally via apple book
