Surprising Vinland Saga took this long to get an anime adaptation. I read the manga years ago and I still have the same problem with this as I had then and that’s my lack of knowledge of European history and basic geography which lessens my enjoyment of the show. So pretty much ironically the most awful people Thorkell and Askeladd were the only reasons I kept watching. Well there’s not many morally right people in this show to begin with anyway. Thorfinn? He’s a lost cause since episode one. He’s rough to watch. He doesn’t change much until the next season if there is one.
