It was announced that Makoto Yukimura’s Vinland Saga manga will be receiving a television anime adaptation.

Kodansha Comics describes the story of Vinland Saga as follows:
Thorfinn is a son of one of the Vikings’ greatest warriors, but when his father is killed in battle by the mercenary leader Askeladd, he swears to have his revenge. Thorfinn joins Askeladd’s band in order to challenge him to a duel and ends up caught in the middle of a war for the crown of England. From the creator of the classic manga Planetes comes this epic, highly-anticipated tale.
