You want me to spoil it for you, or what? ^^;
Define "advanced" and "beginning"? ^^;

I dont want spoilers
i just want to know if the story is like in the middle or in the end or the beginning ... see ? exemple : if in the book, volume 14 corresponds to the third quarter, you could say it's between middle and end  :-/

In your opinion? ^^;
We're still pretty much in the beginning of the book series, as far as I know...

To my French friends: In Italy they have just published the translation of a french book about the life of Myamoto Mushashi (historical - not fiction) by Kenji Tokitsu †originally published in France in 1998 by Editions DESIRIS. maybe you will be able to find a copy still. I found it interesting

hell, it's my favourite manga but nobody seems to be interested in old stuff which bugs me as kenshin boti and lots of other series in the same vain are so much influenced by the work of koike.

lonesome ronin with his kid wandering around and trying to fight the shogunate that put him in this mysery.........hmmm i somehow even sense some berserk in that so check out this manga dammmit.

it can best be compared to an illustrated version of kurosawa movies. As i say very traditional but Vagabond also seems to be traditional.

It's not that I'm not interested, it's just that there are so many different editions out there, and I don't know which one would be the best (the last one has Miller covers...  I don't want Miller covers ^^;)...

I don't like Frank Miller's covers when they're for other people's comics.
I wouldn't buy a "special edition" Berserk collection with Miller covers. Give me Miura. >_<

to wereallmad : hasn't berserk won another price ? like best drawing manga or something ? i thought i've seen that  :-/


I wouldn't know. About all I know about the award is who it's named after.

Wow. 13 is probably the coolest cover.

Quote

'Makes me wonder about them. ^_-


Well, yeah. The book was probably the best novel I've read (which might not mean much to others, since I'm not really that big on reading, but in my mind, thatís a hell of a big deal).

I'm wondering though, has the manga gotten far enough into the story to reveal Ganryu?

Ganryu was, in my mind, the character who would probably look the coolest, and as far as the covers go, artist's depiction of Musashi is right on the money in terms of how I visualized him. This has gotten me pretty excited wondering how Inoue interpreted the rest of the cast, Kojiro/Ganryu in particular. He certainly seemed to stand out in the story, but considering role he ends up playing, I suppose thatís not surprising.

Kojiro without Ganryu? That'd kinda be neat a trick. Unless you're talking about the guy matahatchi steals the certificate from (that might or might not be a spoiler).

Anyway, I ordered the first 12 volumes from animaxis, along with the first 10 volumes of Berserk that I've been meaning to buy, but hadn't gotten around to.

I guess that's kinda stupid since I've only seen a few panels of art, and the covers (Yeah, I'm an impulsive geek), but then againÖ. http://www.comicsplanet.com/vagabond/Vagabond06b.gif maybe itís safe to trust my instincts.

I woulda have ordered 13 and 14 from somewhere else, but I'm totally broke now (well...... I was already broke, now I'm.... broke........er.....). The shipping is outrageous (almost $70). And to top it off, I'll have to wait 2-4 weeks (they say "1-2 weeks", but I say "not likely").

I guess I could have ordered from Sasuga, or planetanime, but I'm pretty sure they charge around $9 bucks, as opposed to the $5 that animaxis charges. So it'd probably come out identical either way.

PS, Olivier's avatar is creeping me out.....

Just don't expect it to be _exactly_ like in the novel. Inoue changed quite a few things (that's why he called the series "Vagabond", not "Miyamoto Musashi").

Well, worse comes to worse, at least I'll still appreciate the art.

Then again, just because the story is different in parts, it doesn't mean it's _bad_, you know? ^_^;

I didn't say that. I'm just stating the worst possible scenario.


edit: well, the real worst case scenario is them fucking up my order, which I'm starting to suspect happened.

It says that all the items shipped, even though almost every volume was out of stock.

Itís not necessarily a problem, theyíve restocked that quickly for orders Iíve done in the past.  It's only when it says "Out of Stock" in red that you'll never see it again. You might be happily reading your Vagabond in a matter of days...

...Or, theyíre sending you bootleg Vagabond yaoi (on the plus side, I hear the artwork is amazing).
