    And this is it, the final published volume of Vagabond to date — hopefully, Inoue will one day finish his magnum opus, but for now this is all we have. It's a good wrap up for the farming storyline, but I would be lying if I said that I loved it as a whole — the arc was very dire and bleak throughout, and Inoue's storytelling felt unusually choppy and scattered a lot of the time.

It's a good wrap up for the farming storyline, but I would be lying if I said that I loved it as a whole — the arc was very dire and bleak throughout, and Inoue's storytelling felt unusually choppy and scattered a lot of the time. Still, it's an important chapter in Musashi's journey, a humbling lesson that made him closer to the people and the world around him. I loved my time with Vagabond, and I sure hope that we will get the chance to see the end of this phenomenal story in the future. But even if not, it was an incredible journey for which I am immensely grateful.

    With the manga on hiatus, this is the farthest we can go in this story. As we are on hiatus, let me recommend not to take breaks with this story. It's so long there's things you will forget along the way. References and such. I have to clarify that my ratings of 5 starts that I have been dropping on all the volumes are for the entire saga, to that point. Sure there were some volumes that are slower than others but I'm not going to spend the time reviewing every single one.

It's so long there's things you will forget along the way. References and such. I have to clarify that my ratings of 5 starts that I have been dropping on all the volumes are for the entire saga, to that point. Sure there were some volumes that are slower than others but I'm not going to spend the time reviewing every single one. As a whole, this story is 5/5. I love it. Crazy thing is, Musashi is only my 2nd favourite character. Team Kojiro, anyone? He's a riot. The best of the story's comedy comes from him. As for Musashi. He's a one in a million human being and his character development is vast. He has people who push along this development for him like Takwan (spelling?) and more recently Shuusaku (the rice farmer) but he alone can also come to realisations. Musashi's one of those self taught alpha geniuses. The deep thinking usually happens after big fights and although it can be tedious for the reader at times, it is the mind of a champion. "Unrivalled under heaven", was it?

    This review is more going to be over the entire series itself and not simply the most recently released volume. I'm too lazy to update every single volume I've read with my review on that volume, anyways. This is one of the first graphic novel/manga series I've ever read, and I must say that I can't imagine there being another quite like it.

I'm too lazy to update every single volume I've read with my review on that volume, anyways. This is one of the first graphic novel/manga series I've ever read, and I must say that I can't imagine there being another quite like it. Vagabond's enthralling storyline, combined with it's detailed characters, underlying themes, and stunning art, is far beyond my expectations of it, and I can say with confidence it is one of the best series I've ever read. Though it had somewhat of a slow start, the story picked up fairly quickly after the Takezo arc, the prelude to his journey of discovering himself as a swordsman. Even then, the story was interesting enough to keep me reading more of it. When it began to hasten it's pace, around the Yagyuu arc, I actually dropped it for some time and began to read a few other graphic novels. Perhaps I had bored myself with constantly reading seinen books, what with reading Vagabond and Berserk at the same time, and needed to take a bit of a break from the mentally exhausting themes. It wasn't long, however, that I found myself reading Vagabond again. One of the things that brought me back is the art. Inoue is a one-of-a-kind artist, and I'd guess that reading too much of the simplistic, cartoony styles of shounen action, sports, and romance had me wanting to return to Inoue's intricate and sophisticated style. I began reading once more, at a much faster pace than before, and eventually found myself at one of my favorite arcs, Kojirou's arc. Though it may not be on par with the top tier manga arcs like Berserk's Golden Age arc, Bleach's Soul Society arc, or Attack on Titan's Battle of Shiganshina arc, and though it may not even be the best of the Vagabond series, it's one that I wholly and thouroughly enjoyed. It was lengthy, detailed, and had great importance to the story. I believe this arc to be the reason Sasaki Kojirou cannot truly be considered the "villain" of the story, though he is Musashi's arch-rival and one of the main antagonists of the story. Developing a sympathy for him despite not knowing his relation to Musashi, it's almost as if Kojirou became his own main character of a separate story, so that instead of a hero and a villain, we have two heroes and no human "villain." Had we not learned of his past with his deafness, and instead stumbled upon him when Musashi decided to fight him, it's likely that we wouldn't feel the same way towards him, and instead seen him as another cocky samurai like Yoshioka Seijuurou. Even with his deafness, his supposed "handicap," we readers still would have looked at him like Itou Ittousai with his handicap. Despite this, however, I do not believe Kojirou to be the best written character. Though he is a very likeable character with a nonchalant air to his movements in battle, I would have to say his development thus far is subpar compared to the other characters. To be honest, I would say there's a dozen other characters better written than him (well, that may be a slight exaggeration). For example, here's someone highly overlooked by fans of the story that I believe to have better development than Kojirou: Yoshioka Denshichirou. His development, from the time of his first real battle against Kojirou to his final one against Musashi, is phenomenally written and planned out. His understanding of not using his father's name as a shield against those who see less of him, yet his unyielding love and aspiration to be like his father, combines perfectly into one in his final moments. His death, standing straight up with his sword in the air, portrays his victory in the war against himself, while Musashi stands before him, victorious, but still struggling and fighting his own internal battles. While I would like to look into Hon'iden Matahachi's character in this review, I feel obligated to bring justice to another overlooked character, Baiken Shishido, more specifically, Tsujikaze Kouhei. Musashi's second battle against Kouhei was what I believe to be the main turning point of his views on sword fighting. In the first "battle" between the two, Kouhei and Musashi are alike in what they deem to be the meaning of living by the sword. However, in their second battle, Kouhei had developed and discovered something Musashi could not quite find himself. I predict Kouhei to be a mirror of who Musashi will become in future novels (if the story is continued). It could potentially be two things that changed Kouhei in ways Musashi has yet to. The first is that it could be the presence of someone to care for and protect, Rindo. While Musashi does have Otsuu and Joutarou, it's important that we see the difference in the mutual bond between Rindo and Kouhei and the love/love-but-doesn't-fully-realize-it relationship between Musashi and the other two. The second, and what I think to be the more likely of the two, is the presence of a battle against Kojirou. Though it was brief, it's clear that Kouhei's battle against Kojirou changed him and enlightened him on the way of the sword, as it did for everyone else who dared to approach Kojirou with murderous intent. Though Musashi has met Kojirou on multiple occasions, he has yet to cross swords with him, and I believe it is not until then that Musashi will ever fully realize his purpose following the way of the sword. Then there's Miyamoto Musashi. His development in the 327 chapters of this series is unmatched, and he has more room to grow. I've talked about him quite a bit in my review already due to the fact that he's the main character, but one thing I would like to point out about him that I find fascinating is the number of parallels to him that can be found throughout the story. Even in the most minor characters that are slain by another swordsman in two pages, we can see Musashi in so many characters, who are most often the pre-Musashi, the "Shinmen Takezo" Musashi. There are also occasions where we see a more matured Musashi, such as in Kouhei or even Kojirou himself, a Musashi that has yet to be uncovered by the audience. As the story moved into the Second Yoshioka arc, as well as into the Post-Yoshioka arc and the beginning of the Farming arc, I believe Inoue's art peaks, specifically in the fluidity of the motions of characters. Perhaps this was a strategic change in style, as the closer Musashi comes to the conclusion of what his purpose is, the cleaner and smoother the art and his motions become, as if Musashi's goal in finding himself is becoming "cleaner and smoother." While the story seems to slow as the amount of action and battles in the story diminishes, the dialogue becomes heavier and harder to understand. Musashi begins to speak about sword fighting more figuratively as he continues to reflect on his purpose. I believe this exchange of action for dialogue is a fine trade-off, as I don't necessarily find action-packed parts of stories to be the most interesting, though they are fun to read. On the contrary, the most recent arc, the Hosokawa arc, has been quite the bore to me. I believe it may be due to the absence of Musashi in these chapters, his only appearance being the end of what has been released, when he finally arrives at the Hosokawa castle. This is somewhat disappointing to me; I think back to how Kojirou used to be one of my favorite characters and compare it to now, where I'm bored by the sight of him. Hurts to see things like this happen, eh? Overall, the story was phenomenal and a worthy 5 star, 10/10 rating for me. Knowing that it probably won't be continued, with the story's hiatus gaining on 6 years and showing no signs of returning, I can't say the ending we were given was satisfactory, especially considering how there's not even a "partial conclusion" like in the Hunter x Hunter show, and it instead abruptly ends with Musashi's arrival at the castle. There's so much more to be played out for us, so much more that needs explaining, but understanding that the author may not wish to continue this series is just as important as understanding the series itself. Inoue's "Real" graphic novel series is currently being released, so he hasn't quit the manga industry for sure, but there's absolutely no guarantee that he will return to Vagabond. One can hope, though, that we will one day see Musashi's fated battle of the "invincibles under the sun" against Kojirou and his reunion with Otsuu and Joutarou. To those who are new to graphic novels or mangas in general, I probably wouldn't recommend this as a starter series, but more of a series to read once you've read 5-10 graphic novels/series, for a few reasons. One, it may be difficult to read if you don't understand Japanese honorifics (-san, -sama, -kun, -chan/chin, etc.) or some aspects of Japanese culture in general. Translator's and editor's notes and such can be helpful in clearing this information up, but these may be absent or vague in some versions. Two, there are several scenes showcasing gore and gruesome killing. For someone just beginning to read graphic novels, the detail of gore, especially with Inoue's art style, may come as a slight shock, so please be mindful of such things before reading. The last reason is simply because of how spectacular of a story it is. When you first read or watch something, whether it be a TV show or a sporting event, it will typically be your first impression of whatever that thing is, and you will tend to use it as a point of comparison. With something like Vagabond, you may set your standards too high, so I'd suggest starting out with something a bit more tame, perhaps a shounen series. But again, this series is a definite must-read, so be sure to put it at the top of your "To Read" list if you have any interest in graphic novels.

Diminishing his ego, overcoming his pride and watching over the weak beings, he unveils his illusion thoughts in order to turn back to the place where his mind belongs - depicted as that dead samurai's crypt from his childhood . Will he be able to match Kojiro after this life experience in the wasteland? Let's see...let's see...

    10/10 Maybe I’m getting sentimental because this is the last physical release for Vagabond (there are still five chapters unpublished digitally), but damn this hit hard. Bitter and isolated Shusaku finally warmed up to everyone, including Musashi. Musashi has grown more humble and learns to recognize the weak. A lot of character development has gone into this arc, making it either my favorite or second favorite. Goodbye Vagabond. May we see your end soon 🤞🏻

    I though this was a complete series. and I kept wondering in the last couple of volumes; how we are going to end on this note - planting rice -_- but it is still an ongoing series but in a long, very long hiatus :( Now I am on par with the latest issue so :( Waiting the next issue. The volume was great much better than the previous one. we finally moved on to a new thing.

Vagabond is the fictionalized account of the great swordsman Miyamoto Musashi and the source material was taken from Eiji Yoshikawa’s novel "Musashi" with some creative changes. The plot is absolutely captivating, not only because if it's wonderful and highly detailed artwork but it's simple central plot which is about the ultimate pursuit of becoming the best. each time that I sat down and read the manga I spent more time thinking about the situations at hand than actually flipping the pages. what is the true meaning of strength? and after obtaining true strength is there even a benefit of having it? what is mentally and spiritually required to be a warrior? what is oneness and how should we move in our day to day life and remain rooted? is weakness inherently wrong? what makes strength fundamentally right? if clinging to labels is wrong, how can we truly judge ourselves objectively and present ourselves to the world aptly? Vagabond explores abandonment, starvation, abuse, doubt, insanity, struggle, dishonor, loss, fear and ultimately death but on the other hand it also explores strength, invincibility, camaraderie, oneness, balance, passion, destiny, love and life. Vagabond imposes these questions themes and messages and ask you to come up with your own conclusions. Before there is Miyamoto Musashi there was Shinmen takezo from Miyamoto village who embarks on a journey to become the only man invincible under the sun. “there are many ways to the top of a mountain”. he meets many opponents with different weapons and with different weapons come different mindsets and different styles of engagement in battle. Regardless of swordsmanship style different characters have struggled with the definition of strength and how to obtain it. Ittōsai for example advocate that experience can only be gained once a man is in the field and completely devout to giving their mind, body and soul to the sword. his abrasive and extreme demeanors reflected in the swordsmanship. Every character has their reasoning for what is necessary to conquer the heat of battle, so when a brawl ensues it's less a battle of swords but more a battle of spirit and ideology. When your life is truly on the line and every movement that you make could potentially be your last, you need to be extra sure of every action you make and if your soul wavers in the heat of battle you're liable to lose your life. This story has dire stakes. It emphasis on the scars of battle and dismemberment. “Strength is desired by all but there's a trail of bodies behind every sword” and worriers have to cope with that fact. “when you yourself become truly strong you can perceive what true strength is” It’s a shame that Inoue took hiatus, I will be anticipating him finishing this marvelous piece of art. In the meantime, I will take on Eiji Yoshikawa’s "Musashi" here are some panels that caught my eye

    I'm not going to pretend I understand the philosophical undertones and deeper meanings of the manga from just the first read... The art is great and the story is thought provoking and extremely violent. I definitely recommend this manga is you don’t mind that it’s incomplete and if you can handle blood and gore.

    Overall Rating: 6 The last volume of Vagabond is finally finished, took me a while to get here. The art in this manga is gorgeous, there is a lot of details to the characters and the environment, to the point that I felt terrible for not paying attention to them on several occasions. But then my problems start, while the art is good, I feel like everything else could use a little bit of improvement. The story is--in my opinion--lackluster, the pacing is also all over the place.

There were volumes with nonstop action, which I'm sure a lot of people enjoy, but not me. There were also volumes that were extremely boring (the farming arc is the prime example). There was just never a good balance between the two, you either had a lot of fights, or just a lot of philosophical words thrown at you that I just didn't find any actual meaning in (maybe I'm just stupid, but that's just how I felt). Maybe it's the result of me being more of a book guy than a manga guy, but I really suffered through some portions of the story. Overall, I had a pretty mixed experience, can't give it more than a six. Hopefully, the story will continue and I'll have a better time.

    Fantastic - the "Musashi as a farmer" storyline finally pays off, it was worth it! Next, to Kokura which is apparently where a lot of important things are going to happen. Get back into this series if it lost you! Fantastic - the "Musashi as a farmer" storyline finally pays off, it was worth it!
