What Is the Vinland Saga Manga About?

Vinland Saga is an action, adventure, and drama manga written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura. This historical epic takes its readers to the mystical and unforgiving Nordic lands.

The story revolves around Thorfinn, who was thrilled to hear the wild stories of a land far to the west.


As he started to bond with Leif Ericson from whom he heard the stories, little did young Thorfinn know that his village would be raided by mercenaries who would ultimately murder his family.

Thorfinn's life was spared and he was eventually raised by the Viking mercenaries.

He then went on to become a fierce warrior who wanted to kill the group’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father.


Thorfinn kickstarted his journey to become the best, capable of surpassing Askeladd.

Vinland Saga is a story set in the 11th century, where violence and madness reign supreme.
