Vinland Saga: Is the Manga Ending Soon?

Vinland Saga turned a few heads with its gory and intense narrative of Viking times with an animation style that speaks true of WIT Studio’s quality. It has even managed to win Crunchyroll’s Best Drama of the year 2019. Rightfully so!

While many are excited about Season 2, the manga fans are a little bummed with the news of manga ending soon. So, is the news true, is the manga ending soon? Let’s find out!

Yukimura revealed that the manga is in fact ending and has entered the final arc. He estimates the manga to end in chapter 216, which means it might release the final chapter somewhere in 2024. It will mainly focus on Thorfinn accomplishing his true goal.

The Manga is in Its Final Arc!

On August 22, 2022, Comic Natalie released an interview with Yukimura and Attack On Titan author Hajime Isayama. Yukimura was asked about the roadmap for completing the ending.

Yukimura replied by saying that the Vinland Saga is in its last arc and the final chapter is coming soon. He also confirmed that the manga entered its final arc with chapter 167.

As this is the mangaka who revealed the information, it is definitely official!

When will the final chapter be released?

Yukimura, in the same interview, estimated that the manga might end in chapter 216.

Based on this information, we most likely have a year’s content left. This might mean that the manga will end by 2024 barring any unexpected hiatus.

What’s the storyline for the final arc?

The final story arc follows Thorfinn and his friends going to Vinland from Iceland to create a land of peace. But they have to deal with unexpected problems including convincing the natives that they don’t mean any harm.

We have to wait and follow to see whether Thorfinn finally accomplishes his goal and if it will be historically accurate!
