Ittosai's style maybe?
Yes, hiding an arm is a nice plan for sure. The opponent loses focus. Even Musashi was shocked when he realized that xD
Maybe, it's also a pose of swordsman (habit might have something to do with this ), or it's just habit

That's pretty scary idea :/
But I still think that Ittosai is hiding his hand. Maybe he developped this new style lately. The pictures where he actually showed his right hand are a little old.
But man, I think you may be right -_-
does inoue sensei use water colour?
chapter 279 is out, and it been a while (I saw it in the morning)
Heh, so Musashi was wondering the same thing... but LOL at the ending.
The funny thing about "the circle" is, I'm actually reminded of a thread mentioning a similar concept (as a bubble) in Shotokan karate, and on the second page someone points out that the circle/bubble and "reading intent" concepts are both found in Japanese swordsmanship.
Musashi sure is in tune with the spiritual world...
I'm getting a bit nervous here. Ittousai can do a lot of damage and the circle technique is not going to work this time.
Also, where is the missing part of the first colourspread? I'm hoping that the other swordsman is Kojiro.
edit: Got on a roll here; finished a rough translation. We should get it out soon. (the raws are sort of lower quality then normal, so it might take some more work from our cleaners, ergo might take a little bit)

Ah! So it was a cover! ^^'
And it really is Kojiro... I miss his interaction with Musashi, they look so peacefull here.
Hmm, something is going on with MH. They've removed all the english Vagabond material (including all our releases of it) and say:
Maybe they got a C&D or something. I wish MH would elaborate a little on the issue in their notice. Let's hope the license holders aren't cracking down.Quote:
