Hey, I can actually tell what's happening in these ones... Musashi is alone! =)

Though among crows, and in two page spread form... then seemingly talking to someone he cut down? :idea:

Inoue's words according to babelfish:
Quote from: Inoue
Those where load falls on the body which was called to the interval of work the Chinese noodles and the ice are eaten unintentionally. Night and combining.
It is September, it meaning that month and season change, it can certainly overcome also this bad habit probably is.
Fall we like.

Just read up to Chapter 237 recently, rather pleased with how much it's entertained me thus far.

I'm looking forward to seeing Kojiro and Musashi's next meeting more than anything, it's interesting to see how the two interact each other. It's interesting that Kojiro seems to want to see Musashi so much as well, he always seems so aloof from everyone else.

Holy shit, 239 has already hit and I was only checking for a 238 translation. =)

Wow, I thought I recognized those bodies... man, I'm actually a little upset by this next ambush, I mean, what scum, really. But at least it shows they're playing for keeps here, and that Ueda's head is still clear (at the same time, there's still a certain obsessive and arbitrary madness involved at trying so earnestly at this point). It's even a PINCER ATTACK! =)

Nice to see Tagaya get some due.

40 years while living, now the busiest air does.
You say with it does not move restlessly and/or that it is busy, incessantly telephones the image which the り is done does not float with carrying?
So the cartoonist it is busy, you draw simply intently facing toward the desk! You draw! You draw! ! Because is, キツ which was different from such, cannot escape is, well....
Simply, because the result which has persevered here fall of this year (already fall), from around November one after another becomes shape, without escaping to encouragement, it continues, at the time of the harvesting.
In addition that time tell the thought in various ways.

Being able to renew long thing ニウス, because increase it is, it tried writing here on the long め at least.

Another masterful preview from Kartoon Hiko. Are these illegible previews just a way for Inoue to stick it to THE MAN for apparently making him do previews in the first place?

Looking forward to seeing if Mushi makes it this time  :judo:

I can't wait...

I've started rereading Vagabond from the very start. This feud has come so far and it's still compelling.

Aaah, that was excellent.

Again, it's a Vagabond chapter that demands translations -- as beautiful as the art is, a lot is lost. You get a general feel for how it's going though... my prediction is fairly obvious one:

Musashi makes Ueda cut down his own man.

I'm not sure it's that obvious. I know it's black and white art, but that really looks like the shade of Musashi's outfit.

Great chapter, and yeah, a translation will be needed.  If it helps any, Ueda's line on page 8 reads: "A SINGLE STROKE!" It sure was cute to see Den, Seij and Ueda as kids together.  Too bad since we're seeing a flashback Ueda's done for.

In fact Ueda should have bleed to death long ago.So he's living in "borrowed time" to fulfill his duty.


Damn! I love this manga!

Yeah, the obvious prediction aside, that shade and shape is the closest match to Musashi's pants, like Ueda is stabbing him in the butt; seriously, it looks like he's nailing him right in the asshole. So Musashi will have a new scar and will never crap again without thinking of the Yoshioka; nice legacy, Ueda. =)

Anyway, I think a deep wound on the backside of Musashi's legs or backside would be reasonable. Of course, it could just be Kurando's clothes darkened for the "dramatic effect" of the moment. i.e. to confuse us.

And young Kempo, awesome. Man, Den was ugly even as a little kid. =)



P.S. I'm glad the episode came out, I was feeling like I opened the Inn just as a drought hit the area. =)

It was cool to see that Den was not just the spiritual successor to Yoshioka, but also inherited the blunt end of his father's looks.  :guts:

Inoue rules.

Yeah, I'm always impressed with how well Inoue conveys different ages/family resemblance. You could see in in his old incarnation (obvious resemblance to Den, and somewhat to Seijuro), and I think there's even a little Ueda thrown in there for fun. =)

OH THAT WAS KEMPO!?

It's hard not to like the ever-smiling Kempo, even if he doesn't have a major presence in the manga.

I dunno about that, Kempo's ghost lingers in almost every scene of the Yoshioka, whether visually or in memory. He's constantly referenced. His legacy was their foundation.

Yeah, to me he has a major presence in the story, larger than life and above it all; and by the same token, he's not a major character in it.

Mmm.

This is what I meant by lack of "presence" -- perhaps I should have said "on -screen presence"? Be that as it may, I agree with you both.

I think I see something... is that...? Yes! Ueda accidentally stabbed a text bubble and it popped! Seriously, I'm still hoping he stabs Mushi in the butt, though. =)

Could you keep the pictures under spoiler tags next time, Griff?

You ruined the entire chapter :miura:
