Young Thorfinn grew up listening to the stories of old sailors that had traveled the ocean and reached the place of legend, Vinland. It's said to be warm and fertile, a place where there would be no need for fighting—not at all like the frozen village in Iceland where he was born, and certainly not like his current life as a mercenary. War is his home now. Though his father once told him, "You have no enemies, nobody does. There is nobody who it's okay to hurt," as he grew, Thorfinn knew that nothing was further from the truth. The war between England and the Danes grows worse with each passing year. Death has become commonplace, and the viking mercenaries are loving every moment of it. Allying with either side will cause a massive swing in the balance of power, and the vikings are happy to make names for themselves and take any spoils they earn along the way. Among the chaos, Thorfinn must take his revenge and kill the man who murdered his father, Askeladd. The only paradise for the vikings, it seems, is the era of war and death that rages on.

From the studio that brought you Attack on Titan, it packs in jaw dropping animation with the perfect score, Mukanjyo (by Survive said the Prophet) and Dark Crow (by Man with a mission), to start the episode, and Torches (by Aimer) and Drown (by milet), to ease your mind after the episode. Watch out for Askeladd, the best antagonist of the year.
Updated encode. Blu ray video with Foxtrot subs.
The encode is now a dual audio release, however here’s the new plan,
-redo the 1080p encode
-add native resolution encode
-add scy subs to all encodes
But this will take a while (hopefully before season 2 releases), so if you can wait good enough else you can download these as well.

now THIS is the treatment Berserk deserved.
Vinland Saga, on the surface, is a story of revenge. Deeper is a lesson on inner peace, healing and the consequences revenge can bring.
Anime of the Year incoming.
A once ‘unadaptable’ manga is now being adapted and is actually given justice as an adaptation. GJ Wit.
Revenge is never sweet. Its a long, painful and wearying journey.
Love me some vikings! Great visuals & soundtrack to boot. As of EP3, I’m completely immersed. Thank you Studio WIT for this blessing.
The type of adaptation every anime deserves
