Vinland Saga, the bloody, nordic anime collection created by mangaka Makoto Yukimura, is ready to return for a second season, with the anime handing off the baton from Studio WIT to Studio MAPPA, in the same move as was taken with Attack on Titan. Set to drop subsequent yr following the wild conclusion of season one, an interview has landed on-line from the creator that provides us a greater thought of how profitable the collection has turn out to be and Makoto’s response to Thorfinn and the corporate’s reputation.

In the interview, launched by Vinland Saga’s Official Twitter Account, Makoto Yukimura had this to say:

“What really surprised me when the first season was announced was that there were a lot of viewers overseas. It may be that Japanese animations are being distributed very quickly all over the world through Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc, but I feel that anime has been attracting people’s attention abroad since long before. I’m thankful for that. Although I’ve seen comments on social media of people wondering why someone like me, who lives on an island in the Far East, creates a story about the Vikings in Europe, I feel that there are no borders to enjoy anime. I’m grateful to live in an era where Vinland Saga can be enjoyed from anywhere in the world.

It was a huge success, and I was asked a lot about the second season. I couldn’t answer that question right away so I always acted on social media like I didn’t notice.”

If you have not had the chance to atone for the tragic story of Thorfinn and his quest for revenge, you possibly can presently watch the primary season on Amazon Prime, with the streaming service releasing an official description that reads as such:

“As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery…the land Leif called Vinland.”
