    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    I recently finished all the 20 volumes available (like 20 minutes ago ). What wonderful art. So fluid. I'm in love with it.

    I especially liked the Kojiro arc. I thought that in terms of characters and plot it was much deeper and better developed. Musashi is such a log, heh.

    _________________________________________________Yay, victory! Got volume 22 at last.

    So if anyone still wants them here are volume 21 and 22 raw.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    i prefer musashi, only because he can actually talk. i like kojiro but he is deaf! I know it adds to his character but i like to see what the characters think. Why couldnt kojiro fucking think?

    Vagabond Vagabond Scanlation Discussion

    Here is a plot summary:
    Growing up in 17th century Sengoku era Japan, Shinmen Takezou is shunned by the local villagers as a devil child due to his wild and violent nature. Running away from home with a fellow boy at age 17, Takezou joins the Toyotomi army to fight the Tokugawa clan at the battle of Sekigahara. However, the Tokugawa win a crushing victory, leading to nearly three hundred years of Shogunate rule. Takezou and his friend manage to survive the battle, and afterwards swear to do great things with their lives. But after their paths separate, Takezou becomes a wanted criminal, and must change his name and his nature in order to escape an ignoble death. Based on the book "Musashi" by Eiji Yoshikawa, Vagabond is a fictional retelling of the life of Miyamoto Mushashi, often referred to as the "Sword Saint" - perhaps the most famous and successful of Japan's sword fighters.

    Oh, and by the way siedhr, damn you for posting that right as I was finishing up that other chapter. I looked at it, didn't see much text, and translated it. Damn Kojiro for not talking.

    Hey, don't shoot the messenger, man. And thank you for catering to the needy. Your karma is improving by the second

    I wonder if Inoue will ever give us a glimpse into his head or he will leave us guessing until the end of the manga.

    Quote Quote:
    Yeah, I noticed the Otsu mistake too late. It's fixed in my translation, but it was too late to put the fix in Neo's release. I was also being absolutely accurate to the Japanese with the name, it is actually Otsuu, but I suppose it looks better as Otsu.
    I had no idea. It's Otsu in the Viz release and in wiki.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    Only 16 pages and not much text, I'll translate it later today.

    Pretty much, Kojiro is dancing about hitting things with his stick, and Musashi is reflecting on how Kojiro is the embodiment of truth/whatever, and wondering why he (Musashi) took the long way around to attaining that truth. His sword, or even that stick in his hands could have taught him. Of course, while Musashi is doing his thinking Kojiro is bugging him by hitting him and things.

    Short summary anyway.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    That's great. Thank you for the summary, zindryr.

    Is it just me, or is Inoue's art style slipping a bit lately? I mean, Kojiro looks like a sketch of himself.
    Oh, new preview pic for chapter 210: http://www.itplanning.co.jp/images/w...gabondpic.html

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    There we go, #209 translated. Good chapter, and it made me see a better translation, (sorry Neo), for some of the words I'd used in the previous chapter. In any case, pretty much what my summary said.

    Re: Vagabond Discussion Thread

    I have been doing this since january and i am used to people just leeching and running. Its just that this was a discussion forum first and people did say stuff in the beginning. I mean mangahelpers is usually a pretty talkative place but i guess that is the way things are.
