Season 2 Review
Each episode has been rated over 8.5 stars on the IMDb list for Season 2. Such numbers are also not seen in the first season. As for MyAnimeList, fans have rated the sequel as high as 8.7 stars out of 10. The series is rated 52 out of all the anime that have been listed on the site to date. All of this is enough to suggest that Vinland Saga is a black banner and has a large fan base.
One fan wrote on MAL, ‘recall the memories watching it all back.’ Another wrote, ‘undeniably the best part of the series.’ Just like that, praise for the sequel continued on the charts. So there’s no doubt that the decision to bring it back will be an easy one. Only the animation company’s schedule led to production delays. For more on MAPPA plans, keep reading!
Many delays like the sequel?
However good the second season can be, it certainly tested the patience level of fans. Releasing the first in 2019, the second took four years to return to screens. Because of this, fans are also expecting a similar trend in the new season. But again, this is the MAPPA Studio we’re talking about. MAPPA has been the busiest animation company of the past few years. Projects are missed within months if dates are not discussed with the animation giant.
In 2023, the company made the final installment of Attack on Titan, Hell’s Paradise Jigokuraku and the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen. This year is full, which means it takes about 1 year to bring Vinland Saga Season 3 return.
Manga Versus Anime
The ongoing Vinland Saga manga released its first chapter in April 2005. And so far, Kodansha has published 26 Volumes of the text. And a total of 200 chapters have come out so far. Of these, 99 were used for two seasons. The second season is used from Chapter 55 to Chapter 99 of the text. This is the ‘Slave Arc’ in the manga. And now, Vinland Saga Season 3 starts from Chapter 100 until Chapter 166.
In general, there is no shortage of ingredients for a new season. In fact, as the manga continues a new season, there will probably be enough content for a new season. So fans don’t need to worry about material availability. It is only a matter of time until the new season is renewed at the same time.
