After KAZÉ Anime announced last month that the planned home video release of Vinland Saga had to be postponed to spring 2022 for production reasons, the Berlin-based anime label has now announced a new disc date.
Vinland Saga will be released in Germany in four volumes as a digipak in a slipcase on DVD and Blu-ray, with the first volume expected to be available from April 7, 2022. A slipcase, a 24-page booklet, a poster, a standee, a button, stickers and the clean opening and ending are listed as extras. A product image of the first volume can be found under this article.
Release dates and details of the other volumes are still pending and will be announced at a later date.
Based on the manga of the same name by Makoto Yukimura, Vinland Saga was created at WIT STUDIO under the direction of director Shuhei Yabuta and ran on Japanese TV between July and December 2019. In Germany, Amazon Prime Video has already shown the 24-part anime as a simulcast, while the Carlsen Manga publishing house has been publishing the manga series for some time (order here on Amazon).

This is what Vinland Saga is about:
It's the end of the millennium. The people of the extremely strong, boundlessly cruel Vikings appear everywhere. Thorfinn, son of the strongest of their warriors, whose life has been spent on the battlefield since he was a child, is drawn to the fabled continent of Vinland. This is the saga of a true warrior in an age of great upheaval.
