Around the end of the millennium, Viking, the mightiest but atrocious tribe, had been outbreaking everywhere. Thorfinn, the son of the greatest warrior, lived his childhood in the battlefield. He was seeking the land of reverie called Vinland. This is the story of a true warrior in an age of turmoil.
The anime that truly speaks the Seinen language. Life brings us hardships and decisions to make, it is unfair, it is hard, it is cruel and this anime shows this, you can relate to the hardships many of the characters go through. It isn't sugar coated like many Shounen anime, it is the real deal, it strikes realism when it has to without question and that makes it stand out.It very much reminds of Berserk, how you have to go through hardships and there will be nothing to it, it is just part of life, you won't get rewarded for going thourgh them, you just move forward. The story at the end was mindblowing. Animation is where it needs to be in important parts, which I really like, use your resources where you need to. Sound, voice acting really gives off emotion. Characters are the real deal, I can see them being portrayed as they should be, where they act the way their backstory has made them, no simple situation changes their worldviews as it goes against what their lives gave them.It's the best Seinen anime I've seen, coming from a person who has seen Monster, Mushishi, Into Abyss. It is real, as like life is, no dreamy anime with goals achieved after hard work, life isn't like that always and so does this anime show it.
Probably the best show this season. This has spoilers STORY....(10/10)The story so far was very good but its not at the good stuffs yet. The first few episodes were a fantastic build up for the story we have now. It also handles war well, its not the usual edgy war we see in usual bad anime. It infact made it even better. The story is also believable as the characters do what they want to do and not just plot devices. edit:Second arc is what i call a 10/10 arc. Very well done. The buildup paid off so well. From ragnars death Canutes development and even Askeladd are now much better. But thorkell still best girl. ANIMATION....(9/10) The use of cgi were good and the animation is also well done. Some scenes were kinda off though, usually when the soldiers fight in cgi, its better animated but oh well. SOUND....(9/10)The aimer ending was sooooo good. Op is also nice. OST is pretty good as well. CHARACTERS....(10/10) The characters are fantastically well done. They arent just plot devices to move the story onwards, they have a true goal a distinct personality and also back stories that tells us why Lets start with thorfinn. Hes a very good mc why? He isnt a typical revenge mc, he has proper buildup. But the main reason is how he strays off what his father told him not to do this made thorfinn a much much better mc. His revenge is very importantt for his development. You will understand later. Askeladd is a weird one. He has this very weird bond with thorfinn and how he does things his way makes him a very cool villain(?) Canute is still in progress All in all, this is how you handle historical fantasy with also a revenge plot in the most brilliant way possible. If you have read the manga that is. OVERALL...(10/10) This is my first review btw its bad ik :( If you are confuse with my review, ya can ask me anytime
