Entendu ! By the way, did you see Hiroshi Inagaki’s The Samurai Trilogy (also inspired by the famous Eiji Yoshikawa's novel) with Toshiro Mifune playing Musashi ?Walter said:That's my recommendation for your first time reading. There are a lot of amazing details to appreciate in this series, and not just in the art. It's a contemplative journey. Blazing through it in a day or two wouldn't do it justice.
I was pretty curious to see what kind of advice people could gave me. You nailed itGriffith said:Yeah, take your time, enjoy the journey, and think of it as your own little spiritual journey away from your busy life. I still have fond memories of simultaneously reading the novel Musashi and re-reading the volumes, back when there were only a dozen or so and a new one was so exciting, while living in little room with no electricity that opened up to a sprawling outdoors and a great tree which I fought a duel under with my bokken. If you're wondering how much of that was a metaphor for the adventure of reading it, the answer is none.
Hopefully I'll come back psyched from this journey and discuss with you guys.
