Basically Vagabond follows the evolution of Takezo til Musashi and portrays his famous fights...the best thing is that the whole story has a fine subjective touch by Inoue, and being a fighting seinen, full of action and deep martial arts philosophy, sometimes it's sooo funny that I've had tears in my eyes...
So it's great...the fights especially...

Naruto vs. Sasuke at the Valley of the End is the high point of Naruto thus far. It's the last time Sasuke was an interesting character, not to mention it has some of the best pacing for a showdown at the end of an arc I've seen in ages.
i saw people saying so good thinks about vagabond that i decided to give a try. vagabond is very fast to read already read more and less 70 chapters but i dont get what you guys see in that manga that makes it so special. the fights are not that special , for me they are much worse than naruto and one piece fights. at least in naruto and op neither naruto or luffy startes killing all the people just for ...... i dont understand how people can like it , in that manga is only violence , it dont exist any respect for the others so......
maybe is just me but i dont like the main character from vagabond and the fights are not that special so ....
The fights are very gracefull when compared to mainstream shonen. Swordfighting looks as real as it can get, and through Inoues drawings I can see why some people of the old Japan considered sword a form of art. The big three have mainly have big bangs and flashes to display action. In Vagabond I can feel the real movement of their bodies, sword and feet a like. It is way more realistic than the swoosh, bang, clank, kaboong, explaining my evil plan outloud, swoosh, slash, bang in shonen.
going to be true , i dont know a think about japan history so probably that was what i was needing to know in order to understand more about the vagabond. in the part that i am he just finshed the fight against inshun that was a tie.
but i get what you guys are saying, comparing to other fights in other mangas here in this one the fight looks more real and that makes it special but cant stop liking more about the ones that naruto has or one peice. cuz althought i know understand that this was what happened in japan long time ago, it doesnt make any easier to like the fights cuz most of the times what is more important is not the fight in itslef but yes what is going to happen in the end of the fight and also why are the people fighting. killing others to become stronger that is a not very good reason altought this was what happened on that time.
A good reason is to protect friends or family

I would definitely like to pick Naruto vs. Pain. they both fight dreadfully way. Pain just make me intense, when Pain make blurred Naruto with his fights stuffs.
was a bit torn between Thorkkell vs Thorfin and Naruto vs Pain. still, went for Naruto vs Pain. I guess the latter fight had more character development for both parties.
I didn't even find Thorkkell vs Thorfinn that amazing.I enjoyed it,but it was not really worthwhile.I voted for Sasuke vs Naruto,as i re-read that fight several times and it's still entertaining me.Kishi's art was at its best there,it was the climax of the arc or more like of the whole first part and it has a huge nostalgia factor for me.Probably one of the fights that will be rememberd forever by me.
Thinking about it again,Naruto vs Pain was epic as well.My heart nearly stopped beating twice and the art was great,too.However,i disliked that Naruto had to do this on his own without any team-work and that Pain/Nagato was weakened.I loved it nonetheless.My vote went to Sasuke vs Naruto,though.
Fights are prevalent part of shounen and seinen; in fact, it can be difficult to name at least 50 shounen and 50 seinen manga that focus little on fighting, if at all, without doing some extensive research. Anyhoo, onto the main thing!
We had about five fights nominated, Naruto vs. Pain, Thorkkell vs. Thorrfinn, Naruto vs. Sasuke at Valley of the End, Miyamoto Musashi vs. Yoshioka School, and Takamura Mamoru vs. Brian Hawk! Respectively, they're from Naruto, Vinland Saga, Naruto, Vagabond, and Hajime no Ippo!
