    Default Vagabond:If you haven't read it you should start.

    This manga has to be one of the best mangas ever created. It is about the real life sword saint, Miyamoto Musashi and his path to greatness. The fights are historically true (with a few modifications) and are beautifully drawn. Inoue Takehiko really out did himself. I am currently up to the part where Musashi is fighting the Yoshioka the second time. Simpler times, makes you wish being a samurai was still considered a way of life.

    Yeah, being able to kill anyone that displeased you, utter lack of individual thought, etc.

    The more recent chapters are good, but really really really drawn out. I don't know how many chapter's it's been so far of it. Ugh.

    lol, Jakko its its funny you say that because I don't know how many times someone has said "I'll cut you down" in this manga. But the lack of individual thought thing I would have to disagree with you on. I think that Miyamoto Musashi embodies the idea of individual thought.


    And animusdx, I know what you mean, but in order to keep Vagabond realistic, Inoue has to make it a long fight. Lets be reasonable, killing 70 swordsmen with only a katana is going to take awhile.

    What do you think "Vagabond" means?

    One thing I dislike is how it's become anticlimactic. First the elder Yoshioka brother was killed in one swipe while he was day dreaming and then Ueda was slashed from behind. I hope this trend of killing off characters marked as "bosses" unceremoniously dosn't continue.

    Vagabond is one of my top favorite manga, everything about it is great ! (including killing "bosses" unceremoniously, I am fucking glad it's not a shonen !)
