My opinion on the manga Vinland Saga
Bahind all the blood and action lies a more profound story. Vinland saga is a reflection on life. That’s why this manga is well-targeted for so many people. The drawings are detailed, the historic reality is followed and the story never misses to amaze you with twists that will blow your mind. Do not worry you will still find soma mange-type clichés in it, so you will not be lost. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy this manga as much as I did.
