‘Vinland Saga’ Season 2 Official Synopsis Released By Crunchyroll
The synopsis of this upcoming season will get you more curious. Crunchyroll the streaming platform officially penned the synopsis of Vinland Saga Season 2.
And it reads, “A new millennium begins in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. After the death of his longtime enemy, Askeladd, Thorfinn lost his purpose in life.
He was bought by the landowner Ketil as a ‘slave’ and engaged in land reclamation work on his farm. Thorfinn meets a young man there, Einar, who was also a slave like him. The encounter of Einar led Thorfinn to face the sins he had committed and began to find meaning in life.
On the other hand, Canute, who became the King of England, attempted to extend his territory for the establishment of ‘the promised land’. This is ‘The Story of a True Warrior (Saga)’. ‘The story of Atonement and Salvation (Saga)’ that lies beyond the prologue.”
‘Vinland Saga’ Season 2 Trailer Is Thrilling
We know you liked the official synopsis of this season. But what will help spark your enthusiasm the most? That is undeniably the new trailer of the season. The new trailer also presented Anonymouz’s “River,” the show’s new opening title song.
The trailer begins, “Einar, Thorfinn, you will be friends starting today.” It’s all up to you. Cultivate it, invest in it, harvest your crops.” It depicts Thorfinn as a slave for a farm worker in Denmark.
Thorfinn has evolved since the conclusion of the first season. Einar, a fellow slave, approaches and asks about Thorfinn’s whereabouts. The new trailer showed a lot of movement. The opening song is phenomenal.
