Season 2 when?
Vinland Saga 23 – Miscalculation
While this episode looked pretty good, content-wise it’s a difficult one to talk about.
Mugen no Juunin: Immortal 12 – Last Blood
This moment definitely felt like a halfway point even in the manga, so I can understand why they would want to close episode 12 out of 24 with it.
Vinland Saga 22 – Lone Wolves
It’s clear by now that the richness of this show comes from its thoughtful exploration of weighty themes and the depth of its characters, with Askeladd being the standout among an excellent cast.
Mugen no Juunin: Immortal 11 – Autumn Frost
This may be a samurai series, but there’s no fancy, gracious swordplay at work in this episode; this is attrition warfare at its most brutal.
Vinland Saga 21 – Reunion
How do you even write anything about an episode that leaves you speechless?
Mugen no Juunin: Immortal 10 – Beasts
Finding moments of beauty amidst an endless cycle of brutal violence and revenge seems to be one of the chief concerns of Blade of the Immortal, and this episode was another striking example of its remarkable ability to do so.
Vinland Saga 20 – Crown
It really is a sign of a superb show and story when even the build-up episodes are this compelling and satisfying to watch.
Mugen no Juunin: Immortal 09 – The Gathering
She’s had a lot of hiccups and moments of hesitation along the way, but it’s hard to question Rin's resolve after the ordeal she went through in this episode.
Vinland Saga 19 – United Front
An episode full of fascinating developments and an exciting conclusion to this portion of an increasingly epic story.
