Here’s a quick translation of #255 for those interested (no Japanese text, hence the “quick” part):

Page #1:

Title: The Prison’s Thirst

Page #2:

Takuan: Make a place to return home to, Musashi.

Takuan: Huh, what are you doing, Musashi?

Musashi: I can’t tell what’s going on with my body with it all wrapped and set.

Page #3

Musashi: ……..

Page #4:

Musashi: Huff….

Musashi: Huff…

Page #5:

Musashi: Huffff….

Page #6:

Musashi: ……

Musashi (as he steps down on his injured leg): Aaa------

Page #7:

Takuan: What are you doing?

Musashi: Ugh…no good I guess…

Musashi: I’m fine…with these bandages on so tight I couldn’t even tell if it hurts or not.

Musashi: My body.

Musashi: Ummm, guardman?

Musashi: Would you mind picking me up a stick about this long? --One of those light ones.

Musashi: I won’t try anything funny.

Musashi (thinking): So I won’t lose it…

Page #8:

No text…just Ogawa and a stick

Page #9:

No text…just more stick swinging
Page #10:

Ogawa (thinking): I see…this would make for good training.

Page #11:

Ogawa (thinking): Without getting rid of the self…you can’t cut someone with a stick.

Ogawa (thinking): Just who could be…

Page #12:

Kojiro + Stick

Page #13:

Ogawa: Oof…

Ogawa: Hey wai…

Ogawa: So you’re the one who has been practicing with these sticks.

Ogawa: Your name?

Page #14:

No text…just head hitting.

Page #15:

Ogawa: …!

Kojiro: Aa

Ogawa: Aa? You…

Page #16:

Takuan: Hey, are you alright?

Takuan: Don’t overdo it.

Musashi: I’m fine.

Takuan: My word. You’re just covered in wounds/scars, Musashi.

Musashi (thinking): …I smell a lecture coming…

Takuan: You ended up having to cut down 70 men…don’t you think something is wrong there? Like you might’ve taken the wrong path or something?

Musashi: …

Page #17:

Takuan: A question for you, Musashi.

Takuan: What is human life?

Musashi: That’s what a fight is.

Musashi: We’re just a bunch of people who willingly, gladly chose to live our lives by the sword. Like any us would care if we were cut down.

Takuan: But at your very core you certainly knew that it is never right to take a person’s life…

Takuan: …regardless of the person (*swordsman or otherwise).

Page #18 and 19:

Musashi (thinking): But it was me…who won…right?

Page #20:

Musashi (self-centered spirit): It was me, right?

Takuan: See.
