The Story of Vinland! That we know

The Vinland Saga, published by Kodansha, started as a serial in the manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine, which marketed mostly to boys, before moving to Monthly Afternoon, which was oriented toward young adult men each month. Its chapters were eventually collected into 27 tankōbon volumes as of June 2023. Kodansha USA has granted permission for the English-language publication of Vinland Saga.

The narrative is a portrayal of the tale of Thorfinn Karlsefni as well as his quest to locate Vinland. Most of the narrative centres on the transformation of his fictional counterpart from a vengeful, bloodthirsty teenager into a peaceful young man; in stark contrast, King Canute's ascent to power represents his own journey, which is in direct contrast to Thorfinn.

Writing the Vinland Saga as an epic story about enslavement was Yukimura's decision, motivated by the Norwegian King Olaf Tryggvason. Thorfinn was originally intended to be a slave, but Yukimura's editor objected, thus the character was altered to be a Viking instead. The author concurred because he intended for Thorfinn to realise, in subsequent chapters of the story, the tragedy that his Viking lifestyle creates.

Thorfinn's character was influenced by Yukimura's experiences through the Cold War and the September 11 attacks. Traumatised by his heroic deeds, Thorfinn sets out to locate Vinland in order to create a place where people of different races can coexist happily.
