Musha shugyō in YouTube
« on: September 25, 2009, 04:19:34 AM »
Another in my vain attempts to rip off every popular section of SK.net. :zodd:

Post videos that even remotely relate to the Inn, like anything with swords, kung fu, fighting, basketball, sports, history, Japan, whatever.



First: the opening of Vagabond turned into a video.

And a spoiler alert for these two:
An actual Vagabond music video of Musashi vs the 70 Yoshioka set to Metallica. :magni:

Same deal as above except this one is with Musashi, Kojiro, and Ittosai at Sekigahara. Weird.


And since this thread doesn't have to really relate to Vagabond in particular, here's a kickboxing match with a guy named Musashi in it. :badbone:

Finally, the classic Home Shopping Network katana mishap. :casca:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o-DCk2qhDM

And the remix. :ganishka:

Note: Musha shugyō is a warriors journey to practice and hone their art.

I admit, I was entertained. :SK:

heres .the let me try to cut a fruit in your forehead
Damn, NEAR accident!? Looked an awful lot like an accident to me! :isidro:


Oh, and I discovered there's actually a sequel to Musashi vs the Yoshioka school music video, with more appropriate music too. Spoilers, in more ways than one, because these really don't do Vagabond justice, cuts out all the story elements, etc.

Here's a real treat though, footage of Inoue illustrating Vagabond in real time from the DVD Draw!

A video I took at Kinokuniya bookstore in NYC in March. Inoue painted these murals of Musashi and Kojiro while in New York in Nov. 2007.

I think this guy tried to do Kojiro's "Tsubame Gaeshi" and failed miserably. Lucky no one was seriously hurt. Or maybe he did it on purpose, to keep the guy from talking to the girl :casca:

1988 World Series, Kirk Gibson's at bat against Dennis Eckersley. AMAZING video! I can't emphasize this enough, great whether you give a shit about Baseball or sports or not. The drama of this at bat is like a tense battle from Vagabond or Berserk, no joke.

How about some awesome Inoue videos?

These are from a TV show he was a guest on. He still didn't shave his head back then!

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4u_VFBFRWQ
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5JX1bod4wM
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I32gRewzVlk
Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkmm1wTrahM
Part 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU6DtnPPyuA



Now these are particularly awesome. There's footage of him waking up, driving, having coffee, drawing, getting pissed off... cool stuff! I think they're from a 1-hour special NHK made about him, but I'm not sure. I could only find the first two parts, so if anyone can find the rest, please post them.

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lutaxnKDgeg
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2wGpthlUyA

I wish a kind soul would translate all of these... :judo:

Whoa, those are incredible finds, especially Inoue in his workspace, thanks Eluvei! Between that and the Draw videos posted earlier, that's so much footage of him working. And yeah, it would be great if we had someone to translate them...

Too bad we don't have more videos like this of Miura at work.   :sad:

Well, considering what we DO have of Miura...

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGLtPxJdfAU
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfQAviQGtQ8
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXlI1_9H0Ro

...I don't think that's likely (we're probably lucky to have pictures =).


This all reminds me of when I posted that footage from Draw:

If you missed it before, check them out along with Eluvei's offering, it's must see if you're into Vagabond, manga, or just drawing.

You're welcome! Yeah, as much as I respect Miura's wish for privacy, it'd be awesome to see him working. And shooting some hoops with Inoue.



Well, I didn't find these here, so check out these commercials he made:

I just found the rest of that 1-hour special NHK made about him. It's a show called "Professional". They basically follow him everywhere, showing his life and asking him a bunch of questions. Be warned though, there are some pretty heavy spoilers for the recent episodes, since we see him drawing pages for volume 31.

Here's the whole thing:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88fZ_IhQhBc
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SW_4gwzGbw4
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEb8i_yoVZo
Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2sgOWb5T5s
Part 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iA65Hl5ADrY
Part 6: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhBkVRZISXU

It's pretty recent, too. Apparently, it aired September 15th.
I think you can buy a DVD of this when it's released, but I doubt it's already out.

Here's the official website of this TV show: http://www.nhk.or.jp/professional/index3.html
And the specific website for Inoue's episode of this show: http://www.nhk.or.jp/professional/backnumber/090915/index.html

Now if anyone could translate all of this!  :isidro:



Inoue talked a little bit about this show in his latest blog entry.

Quote
Recently I've been hearing a lot of comments about NHK's Professional that aired the other day.

All your voices are mingling tightly inside me and are lending me great strength. Thank you.

But, it looks like they only chose to air the parts about when things are tough!

Please don't worry as I do have times when things are a bit looser and more relaxed (?)...

(...)

I want to touch on one important thing that wasn't shown. Besides the people that I depend upon directly, there are many professionals that are involved at all stages to get something from an author to the audience. It's thanks to their skill, effort, patience and professional flexibility that allows things to come together. I felt anew that that was the case.

I always think that I should try not to burden them with extra work... but I'm not very good at doing that right now... I'm sorry.

In any case, with such a long running series, there have been good and bad times, and things have certainly gotten harder and slowed down. I don't think that my current way of doing things is perfect, and I feel that there are not a small number of times when I feel like I've dropped the ball on something. I feel that I need to work on changing things from there.

And so... the first thing I'll do is start by cleaning my desk.

From the extremely hard working director Mr. A, to all the programming staff, thank you for your time and hard work. I want to thank you for touching on a variety of subjects (like my artbooks... hehe). I even discovered something that will help me take the next step. It was a very good experience. Thank you very much.

The one I have here, it's not quite a part  of a movie based on Musashi, but it kinda looks like a copy cat or just some explanation about the weapons.

To commemorate Inoue's announcement, the Duel at Ganryu Island from the Samurai Trilogy, starring the great Toshiro Mifune as Musashi.
