    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion

    Well Inoue has, and will continue too I'm sure, take many liberties with history and the original story so them rushing off to duel at a young age could happen. Though him introducing Matahachi as the narrator almost makes it seem like he'll be using him to allow time skips that flow rather smoothly. So a chapter or two devoted to what Mushashi does during the nine years prior to the duel wouldn't surprise me. Though it was definitely be mostly text in my opinion, since having too many images would take up too much space if he plans to finish by the end of this year.

    But in the end, I have no idea. But this is Inoue we're talking about so I'm sure it will be well written.

    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion

    The recent chapters showing Musashi's training shows he's already starting to develop the two-sword technique, as opposed to earlier battles where he only used it out of desperation or as a reflex.

    So it would also be interesting to see Musashi training more, like I'd wanna see in detail how he comes up with the stuff, or why. I don't really like a time-skip regarding that because when the fight with Kojiro comes, he'll have already mastered the technique.

    I can never make anything out of these sketches but it is good to know 297 is on the way. (although I was hoping that the scanlation team were too busy and would drop a few issues at the same time)

    Sorry, but no raws to be found, so not much we can do. We're looking though. Hopefully we don't have to wait until the next volume comes out.

    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion

    I think Musashi should attain a level at least close to Sasaki in terms of clean cut, with a branch...then developing Nito Ryuu, and after that the duel...Sasaki said(?) that Musashi is still lacking, so I see Musashi developing during their fight, but with the necessary base before that...the fight with Gonnosuke might actually occur if it's during the journey towards Sasaki...I just want musashi to lose, and it's said that Gonnosuke beats him...maybe the manga will end that way who knows

    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion

    I really don't get the Gonnosuke addiction that many seem to have..

    In Inoue's Manga, he is an important character? ...

    In real life, he and his disciples/followers "CLAIM" he defeated Musashi on a second round challenge. Where he invented this staff technique that Musashi has no way to defend against. Since Musashi have spared him during their first encounter, he spared Musashi's life in return...

    Wikipedia has a passage where it was explained that Gonnosuke came up with a technique to defeat Musashi from a dream/seeing a "Divine Being".

    So I'm suppose to believe that some skilled Martial Artist who claim to have defeated Takezo's dad, then taken down by Musashi with a single strike? And this loser came up with a technique that can defeat Musashi from tripping on acid?

    In real life, historically speaking, I suspect Gonnosuke was just spreading rumors around so that his school/legacy (Shintō Musō-ryū) can carry on even after being defeated. IF and that's a big IF, Musashi and Gonnusuke even met at all.

    Musashi probably won't develop Niten Ichi Ryu, even if he does, the Manga might not mention it at all.

    If you noticed the style of this Manga, a Romanticized biography of Musashi, doesn't really focus on techniques and names associated with them.

    Take Sasaki for example, he used Tsubame Geishi several times in the story now. None of which anyone, be it narrative or actual dialogue have ever mentioned what it is called. It's just, the way Sasaki use it, anyone who knows a bit of real Japanese samurai legends will immediately recognize it.

    Same thing with Musashi. He periodically uses both blades, but never mentions why. Manga doesn't really go into detail to explain he is actually developing some kind of technique that requires two blades to execute. This is Inoue's style and I seriously doubt that we will see "Tsubame Geishi" or "Niten Ichi-ryu" mentioned... ever.

    If you noticed, this Manga portrays very realistic events and confrontations. And in reality, even if you developed some kind of unique skill, you wouldn't scream it out loud then perform said technique.

    i.e. Naruto/Bleach or (insert your main stream Shonen Anime title here)

    Naruto: "Fūton: Rasenshuriken~~~~~~!!!!!!! AHHHHHhh!!!"
    (Fires Fūton: Rasenshuriken)

    The above Naruto/DBZ/Bleach or whatever usual scene showing some super hero unleashing a devastating attack but for whatever reason "warns" their opponent before they attack

    It's not going to happen in Vagabond lol...

    God, those color pages look fantastic! Maybe we will get some Mushashi x Kojiro interaction...or maybe that's asking too much.

    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion

    ^^Gonnosuke is the one with the staff, who challenged Sasaki, because he thought he was the most powerful fighter...after that he went on the trip along with Sasaki and Ito...

    @宮本寶藏
    well, it's not really an addiction, but it's more like a wish to see Musashi lose...
    Anyway he is the only one even if in selfclaims and rumors that developed a technique that Musashi had no counter for...that would be pretty spectacular to see, and now that he has been introduce in the manga I don't see why exclude him

    Of course this is Inoue's story and the way he built things up, Sasaki might be the final opponent and the epitome of skill, regarding Musashi's development, but a ray of hope will always exist in my heart

    Niten Ichi Ryuu is an important thing that was developed by Musashi and it was mentioned in the manga why Musashi uses both blades sometimes...it's a memento of his father's Jitte techniques...so Niten Ichi Ryuu is somehow a positive element of the legacy his father left...so I think it's important

    I can't read Chinese at all, so would you mind shortly summarising the dialogue parts ?
    Also, who's that fat samurai guy (I haven't finished reading/watching yet, as my connection is slow today) ?
