Kodansha publishes the Vinland Saga manga by Makoto Yukimura in English, and gave this description for the plot:
“As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Throfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery … the land Leif called Vinland.”
The historical Viking manga debuted in 2005, published by Weekly Shonen Magazine. There are more than seven million copies of the manga out in circulation.
