  1. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagabond 300 Discussion Mmm, I tried using an online translator on his online website, hoping to understand what's the last news (dated 6th December 2010). First sentence was "I'm quitting", but the following didn't seem to say the same, so I'm not sure. If somebody can read Japanese, it'd...

    Re: Vagabond 297 Discussion 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) ?
  3. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagabond 295-296 discussion Well, that was expected. Musashi planned his arrival at Ganryu Island at the tide change time, so that he would both come and leave faster to/from there, mostly in order to avoid Kojiro's angry followers in case he'd win. I guess this is what is being set up now...

    Re: Vagabond 291 Discussion / 292 Prediction Thread First won't happen. Second is more than doubtful. Third never happened... Given today's chapter, I really doubt we'll get to see much more than the final fight, and probably a couple of chapters after that (which have already been drawn).

    Re: How will Inoue end Vagabond? I doubt there's much more than a cameo left for Gonnosuke, his fights have probably been traded for fights against Itto Ittosai. There are basically two things left to show now, before the fight. First is Kojiro becoming a swordsmaster, but that could be done...

    Re: Vagbond 288 Discussion / 289 Prediction Thread Nah, not killed for the fun, just knocked down. Musashi was held captive and couldn't stand it. The guys took him to the dojo, but he was still considered a captive, he knocked them down and walked away, being free.
  7. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagbond 288 Discussion / 289 Prediction Thread I don't think we're meant to se Hyogo in action. He met Musashi once and was the only one who really understood Musashi's art of the sword (but felt it could never be properly used by common swordsmen, unlike Shinkage's style or other...
  8. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagabond Hang Out Thread The fight has to be set up, so it's definitely needed that Musashi accepts a position as sword master or at least becomes good friend with a local figure who rivalves Kojiro's lord. As well it should be shown how Kojiro will become swords master. Let's say one book...

    Re: Vagabond Hang Out Thread But beware, it's a seinen. No super powers, etc. lots of philosophy in it. Best manga book I've ever read, by miles.
  10. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagbond 287 Discussion / 288 Prediction Thread Anyway, on his website Inoue said he had to rush to finish the chapters on time and that the book version is expected to be different from the weekly chapters, as he was far from being satisfied with his work. So there may have been a slight...
  11. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagbond 287 Discussion / 288 Prediction Thread Maybe something like "You're often said to have slain nearly a hundred men" ?
  12. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagbond 286 Discussion / 287 Prediction Thread They did. They definitely did. Fighting is the very last option in the middle way. To ruminate all this a little more... Chapter 286 shows us Kojiro fighting without any hatred. Hatred and rage lead him to fight, but he fights without them...
  13. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagbond 286 Discussion / 287 Prediction Thread Cause Itto purposedly abandonned him in the middle of a war (Sekigahara's battle) where Kojiro had no clue of what was happening, and peasants or soldiers tried to murder him for no particular reason ?
  14. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagabond 285 Discussion / 286 Prediction Thread If the complete volumes go on sale soon after their last chapter has been published, we should be able to get the missing chapters within a few weeks. But yes, it's quite odd to only have every other chapter... And it's annoying when it's...
  15. Seinen Vagabond by Inoue Takehiko

    Re: Vagabond 280 Discussion / 281 Prediction Thread Great chapter indeed. I didn't have the impression Itto has missing fingers, I just thought he kept his hand (well his fingers) in his pocket, because his hand got useless due to some disease that makes his veins look big. Probably I didn't...
