    Gods dont pander to mere mortals. He puts a preview up to tell his subjects that he MAY be releasing sometime soon or not. Maybe a sacrifice will appease him and he will send one out

    I guess Inoue wasnt happy with the people. Hopefully he wont cast a plague.

    It wasnt the leechers that were getting to me, it was something unrelated but i think ill keep it going. Also, the scans aren't coming right now because i'm still on break but when i do i will do at least two chapters

    Chapter 210 raw finally http://www.sendspace.com/file/xef9tz

    Looks interesting. Kojiro is so childish and rather manipulative. I wonder why he reached for his sword and then decided not to draw it after all.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    I'll get to that tomorrow, doesn't look like too much work. Hell, doesn't look like it really even needs translating as you guys can pretty much see what is going on fairly easily. Kojiro and Musashi fighting with sticks, flashes to what might happen if they were using real swords, Myoshu happy that they're playing along together and stopping them saying it is time for a meal, and Musashi saying that he doesn't know who would have won a real fight, (I think? Not looking at it right now, not in front of me, but that's close enough. It's that or he knows who would have won, and it wasn't him).

    Getting back to the new chapter, I can't wait for zindryr's summary (and translation). I wonder what are they all talking about. Oh and this page, the bottom panels, hilarious.

    Yay, I can't wait. I'll only be able to give you feed-back Sunday evening though. I'm going on a short vacation to the mountains with my former co-workers tomorrow and I won't have any Internet there.

    That shan't happen again. I can PM you when a new chapter comes out if you want.

    Totally unrelated, I love this emoticon. Love it.

The volume scanlations however will remain high quality because it doesnt take much work to get those looking good. I only have to redraw once or twice anyway.

    In short, this will speed up the scanlating process and get more out for the fans. I will probably purchase volume 23 and 24 and see if i get around to scanning them after i finish some other manga on my scanning queue (and after 24 comes out ).

    As a result of this decision, i should be able to crank out vagabond chapters. they wont be particularly pretty but they'll get the job done.

    edit: i saw your post on ritual scan forge siedhr. You know french? you are one smart woman.

    also, read that story and give me honest feedback on the story itself so i can move forward accordingly. I have an idea of where i want to go but still second opinions are welcome.

    Guys and gals, somehow you're going off-topic.

    Although your discussion somehow evolves around Vagabond it's more like a chat abput translating and scanlating and so on.
    Although your effort is certainly appreciated, this thread is to discuss the series and not your techniques how to work on it.
    I suggest making an own thread for it.

    Thanks.

    oh... snap!

    I've been waiting for soooo long for the next tank to come out. Thanks to whoever is working on it.

    ok.. to get back on topic.
    What do you think makes Takehiko's art style so sweet? (that's on topic right?)

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    I guess if you see the more recent volumes of vagabond and real, you'll see the kind of detail that makes him great. Especially in Vagabond in the color pages. You see his fine attention to detail and the playing with colors also helps it. I just dont know how to express the greatness in words. He just is that good.

    Agreed. Takehiko is the Musashi of manga. As an artist, his wonderful blend of eastern and western comic art is baffling. It is very obvious that he has had formal training. I would say he has a thorough knowledge of anatomy.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    What I like the most about his art is the expressivity of the characters. In most mangas you only see a set stock of faces for each emotion, but in Vagabond, each character is distinctive, each expression stages, depending also on the character's aging process. And it's not only the faces, it's also the position of the body, the clothes and so on. Just look at Kojiro's hair who's perpetually being blown this way and that by the wind. Amazing stuff.

    His women aren't that great, though. Not to mention the character designs which are very similar - though not as much as Hiroaki Samura's which are practically identical in design, with the notable exception of Doa. I've always found Otsu rather bland and Akemi also. Oko is the only one who is different - both as design and personality. And Otsugi too, but she's old and she's been the only old woman character for a very long time.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    I agree that his women look the same. I mean the only one that looked remotely different was the girl from slam dunk (i think that she, or her looks make an apparence in real).

    In vagabond, i love how he is able to show the despair in the face of the fake kojirou (didnt musashi's friend take that name). I love how he has made Musashi evolve from a twirp from some village to the imposing figure that Musashi is. The other thing that makes his artwork different is his use of paint in the color pages. I you can see the strokes and the layering and stuff. Like i said, it is hard to describe his greatness but we all know it.

    Catfish, you are right. If you have ever read slam dunk, you can see just how much of the human anatomy he knows. He makes the characters move like actual basketball players. You can see the fatigue and the wear and tear and that was all those years ago. He has only gotten better in Vagabond and Real
