Plot: Thorfinn, son of one of the Vikings’ greatest warriors, is among the finest fighters in the merry band of mercenaries run by the cunning Askeladd, an impressive feat for a person his age. However, Thorfinn is not part of the group for the plunder it entails—instead, for having caused his family great tragedy, the boy has vowed to kill Askeladd in a fair duel. Not yet skilled enough to defeat him, but unable to abandon his vengeance, Thorfinn spends his boyhood with the mercenary crew, honing his skills on the battlefield among the war-loving Danes, where killing is just another pleasure of life.
One day, when Askeladd receives word that Danish prince Canute has been taken hostage, he hatches an ambitious plot—one that will decide the next King of England and drastically alter the lives of Thorfinn, Canute, and himself. Set in 11th century Europe, Vinland Saga tells a bloody epic in an era where violence, madness, and injustice are inescapable, providing a paradise for the battle-crazed and utter hell for the rest who live in it.

The mangaka shares about Ep 11 cut content which is avalable on Amazon
Vinland Saga manga creator Makoto Yukimura made sure viewers knew that the series' 11th episode had some changes when it aired on NHK on Saturday night. Yukimura wrote on Twitter on Sunday that the NHK version was "smaller in scale" and due to "various circumstance" the episode had numerous cuts "everywhere." Yukimura apologized to viewers and stated that the full version of the episode is available on the Amazon Prime streaming service.
Yukimura elaborated that the issues were no one's fault and related to NHK's status as a terrestrial television station.
"Regardless, it's unfortunate that that the cut scenes won't be seen by everyone!" the manga artist wrote. "It's a shame when even a bit of the hard work put into an anime production is lost. In short, I'm advertising why you should by the Blu-ray. And watch on Amazon Prime!"
Dream: I'll give Funi the weekend to fix the issue. If it isn't fixed by then, guess I'm not-so-legally watching the episode if they're not gonna fix it.
