    Default Vagabond , Takehiko Inoue

    Yo There wasn t a thread about Vagabond inhere so I wanted to do it

    Vagabond is the story of Mushashi Miyamoto , the greatest samurai ever.
    Its one of my favourits , 23 volumes are out in Japan.

    And if someone has more to say about it just do your thing.
    And if you never heard of it I suggest you to start looking for it.

    (I ll write later a little summary and stuff like that)
    Seeking infinity, with all my affinities.
    Finding truth, like a falling fruit, my ultimate finality.

    He wasn't a samurai, just a swordsman. But yeah, the series really does kickass and I wish it was popular here.

    I've read somewhere up to 14th or 15th volume, it's been awhile so I'm not sure, but I think I'm more interested in reading the book than dwelling into the rest of the volumes. Inoue takes his time with fights though. He is such a page waster, though not as bad as Hideo Yamamoto. I wouldn't had wanted to read the duel with the monk stick baldy dude in a weekly basis.

    Yeah, I really wanna find the book as well. Maybe I can, but am being lazy.... even now, I know that Inoue went in a totally different way. Which would get to me just a little, if Yoshikawa's book was factual.

    And yeah, the guy can have a chapter full of glares.

    If you mean factual = real life story
    then it isn t , Yoshikawa s book is a novel
    if someone wants some info on Miyamoto s life and his book "A Book of Five Rings" go to http://www.samurai.com/5rings/

    (Yeah Musashi Miyamoto wrote his own books!)

    I know it isn't factual. I don't count on anything to be; there's a lot of bullshit associated with martial arts/sword history. Which is why I don't mind the obvious changes Inoue made to whatever his base was.

    Inoue did pick up some extremely bad habits with Vagabond with regards to pacing and time-wasting. Fortunately he hasn't allowed it to spill over into Real, his other series. And the art is some of the best you'll ever see, which I guess makes the series salvageable in the end. But I still would not want to be addicted to reading each installment weekly. It would drive me insane.

    Yes it s true thats why I wait untill the whole manga is out
    I had some luck cause I started to read Vagabond after the 21th was out
    so I didn t have to wait all those months (or was it years?) Inoue took a rest

    The french version is ahead of the English one and I have nr21

    and I have some good news for those who can t wait
    someone in mangahelpers is translating and even scanlating the latest raws
    so enjoy!

    bad habits??? man... i personally call it "attention to detail". taking 10 books to talk about the story of the antagonist... that's character development at a level never seen in manga. imo it's one of the top three series that i have ever seen. you gotta look at the bigger picture. when it's all finished it'll read like a dream.

    i do agree with you about real though... unfortunatly it's a book-a-year manga so the pace is even slower.

    I am scanlating it (my alias is NeoShweaty). I have a diehard Inoue fan but i have to agree that the pacing is off. I mean he spends like three chapters having Musashi approach Kojiro.
