Vinland Saga Season 1 Recap
Season 1 of the show was more of a prologue. The main story of the anime will start from the second season which will see the character development of Thorfin. If you’re a manga reader you may already know what character changes he goes through. In season 1, an immature Thorfin followed Askeladd to get revenge for the death of his father.
He used to accompany him wherever he went and find a chance to kill him. In this process, Thorfin grew older and became much stronger. We also found a bit of backstory about Askeladd in season 1. He was the rightful heir to England and wished Canute to become its king. In the final episode of season 1, Askeladd killed the king and orchestrated a scenario that would see Canute become the king.
