The Glowing Light in the Depths

-> RTS Page for Vagabond 258

Time for yet another chapter. This time it’s 258.

Page #1:

Takuan: But Musashi, do you understand?

Takuan: Even so, you are still connected with Heaven.

Takuan: But…

Takuan: As long as you wish for (that connection)…

Page #2:

Takuan: …pray.

Title – Chapter 258: The Glowing Light in the Depths

Page #3:

Musashi: …

Musashi: So in the end, I guess all that’s left is to pray.

Takuan: No, not “all that’s left” and not “in the end”. Prayer is the beginning of all things.

Takuan: We can always pray. No matter the time or situation.

Takuan: Even if it’s just to “the path I’ve traveled this far”…point yourself toward heaven and pray.

(FLASHBACK – from chapter 250)

Takuan: What do you pray to, Musashi?

Page #4:

Musashi: To the path I’ve traveled this far…

Musashi: No, to say it further…

Takuan: Musashi, I guess you’re you no matter where I cut you.


Takuan: I guess it’s almost time for night.

Takuan: I know you can’t see the stars from here…

Takuan: So hold heaven in your heart and pray.

Page #5 - 7:

No text…just stick fighting.

Page #8:

Ogawa: No.

Ogawa: A twig and a sword are different. No, they are totally different.

Ogawa: Please forgive me for clinging to such an idea.

Ogawa: The truth of my opponent’s superiority is being pressed on me---

Ogawa: Because I don’t have any experience in fighting with sticks.

Page #9:

Ogawa: Twigs and swords are different.

Ogawa: I’m not used to handling a twig so…

Page #10:

Gakupe: Ogawa!!

Kouetsu: Maybe he has a stomachache…

Page #11:

Musashi: There are times when my sword swing surprises even me…

Takuan: Hmm?

Musashi: It’s strong and fast. There are these times when I can really use a sword.

Musashi: And during times like that…

Page #12:

Musashi: The depths of the center of my body glows.

Musashi: And for some reason when that happens I feel laughter well up in me…

Page #13:

Musashi: …and I want to pray.

Musashi: So that “glowing” is what you call the “heaven held in our hearts”?

Page #14:

Musashi: “Heaven and I are connected.” I kinda feel like I understand that.

Musashi: Connected firmly with heaven…

Musashi: I see…My sword is free…

Page #15:

Musashi: …and infinite.

Page #16:

Musashi: Uwaaaaa….

Musashi: Sorry, Takuan.

Musashi: I just got super sleepy.

Musashi: My body wants to heal its wounds, sorry. *snuggle snuggle

**Musashi sleeping/snoring…
