Do you all remember when Crunchyroll announced a while back that they were going to stream Vinland Saga season 2? Even though season 1 was nowhere to be found on the anime streaming platform? You know, since Amazon hold the licensing rights to it? Well, it seems now that Crunchyroll has decided to do something about that.

Crunchyroll Raiding Amazon for Vinland Saga Season 1?

It seems that Crunchyroll recognizes that everyone loves a good Viking story.

Crunchyroll is announcing that not only are they streaming the long-awaited season 2 of Vinland Saga on the anime streaming platform, but there’s more. Apparently, we’re getting season 1 on the same as well. That’s right, all 24 episodes of season 1 of this award-winning Viking anime are now available on Crunchyroll.

And after watching Vinland Saga season 1, you can then check out season 2 only on Crunchyroll. In fact, the very first episode of season 2 just made its debut there on Monday, January 9, 2023 at 11:30 AM (ET) / 8:30 AM (PT). Crunchyroll even has an official synopsis for the anime to hype things up for us. You can check it out below:

A new millennium begins in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. After the death of his longtime enemy, Askeladd, Thorfinn lost his purpose in life. He was bought by the landowner Ketil as a “slave” and engaged in land reclamation work on his farm. Thorfinn meets a young man there, Einar, who was also a slave like him. The encounter of Einar led Thorfinn to face the sins he had committed and began to find meaning in life. On the other hand, Canute, who became the King of England, attempted to extend his territory for the establishment of “the promised land”. This is “The Story of a True Warrior (Saga)”. “The story of Atonement and Salvation (Saga)” that lies beyond the prologue.

Plus an official trailer from about a month ago.

You can watch both seasons of Vinland Saga here. Unfortunately, Crunchyroll has locked both seasons of the anime behind their premium account paywall. So if you want to watch one of the best Viking anime series in existence, then you’re going to have to shell out some cash for that premium account. However, if you like a saga about some very historically accurate Vikings in anime form, then this might be worth it.
