The end of Vinland Saga is getting closer

the middle japanese Comic Natalie interviewed the authors Hajime Isayama (Shingeki no Kyojin) Y Makoto Yukimura (Vinland Saga), who revealed a series of relevant data about their works. However, one of the most relevant points was the fact that Yukimura commented on whether the end of the manga Vinland Saga is close, and if you already have a route planned.

  • It has already been 17 years since the serialization of Vinland Saga began. If you look back on your life as a manga artist until now, what is your current state of mind, Yukimura-sensei?
  • I’ve been a cartoonist for almost 25 years, and all I want now is for my children to grow up safe and sound, and to draw well Vinland Saga until the last episode. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have a completely digital environment and I hope to take advantage of it to continue drawing manga. If you change the effort of putting screen tones for painting in color, I think it could be done in full color. I would like to try this kind of work.
  • What fans are most interested in is the future story of the Vinland Saga, but is there already a path planned to finish it?
  • In fact, there isn’t much fabric to cut from anymore. We’re not that far from the last chapter. The planned route was drawn up before the series began, but the details are different. There are many characters that did not appear in the initial assumptions. But the details have been drawn up flexibly according to the situation. Recently it became clear to me that it is better to leave loose ends than solid facts.
