Aye. It reminded me of volume 5's front cover from what back when.Griffith No More! said:I like the cover too.
I too am curious about that. If I remember rightly, he's supposed to be on a hill, with a bunch of Yoshioka yojimbo.. but pages 10-11 didn't suggest that. Then again, it's been an awfully long time since I read the novel and we know Inoue isn't going page for page with his manga adaptation.Walter said:I noticed Inoue didn't bring (or at least hasn't shown yet) Denshichiro's son/the child heir of Yoshioka into this battle. Interesting.
Pretty sure the kid was near the tree in the novel.Uriel said:Then again, it's been an awfully long time since I read the novel and we know Inoue isn't going page for page with his manga adaptation.
He had it coming. He's also the leader, and best to take him out first, while he's still surprised at his sudden appearance.Oh and in response to your spoiler tag: that scene kind of shocked me. I wasn't sure who it was at first, but after reading over the chapter a second time, I was certain. I guess anyone is disposable in the wake of Musashi right now.
That shirt would be awesome if it didn't have MatahachiThis is somewhat unrelated to the topic of 225 -- but I saw this and realised that I must have one:
I really got the impression that he didn't... but everyone else certainly did.Griffith No More! said:New episode sheds some interesting light as usual. I wonder if Musashi was really even aware of Ueda.
Wow, you can say that again, I honestly didn't even notice it was so short. I mean, it felt like it ended too soon and I wanted more as always, but I had no clue there were actually so few pages until I read your post, and even then I had to go check. =)Uriel said:When I finally got the new chapter, I was surprised to only see 14 pages.. but the last panel more than makes up for it.
Yeah, I'm also suspicious of the way Ueda was struck. It could play out in many ways. But I'm guessing with a portion of his skull missing, he's no longer able to hold a sword to any proficiency.Griffith No More! said:No, I was quite genuinely surprised; but, my reputation supercedes me. =)
Anyway, still wondering how this will play out, I don't think he can keep up this level of serenity for all of them; he's already arguably broken concentration on the last page, and Inoue may have left the door ajar for Ueda still.
A long time friend of mine, who actually introduced me to the life of Musashi, travelled from Calgary in Canada all the way to Maryland to spend a couple of hours with me at an Opeth concert. After a bunch of bullshit, including him missing his bus, getting kicked out of the gig for holding one of my beers (we was 2 days away from being 21) and me busting him back in there... well, words can't really do that kind of thing justice. So I gave him my copy as a small token of my gratitude -- and he was blown away. It was the least I could do after all that, man...Kagami said:Why on earth did you?!
Since Musashi has cut down Ueda and Horikawa, there's at least four left (of the six that confronted him before); assuming that last guy hitting the ground on page 16 wasn't Yoichi. =)Funkmasta Zeph said:So how many of the Ten Swordsman of Yoshioka are left now?
