Vagabond

This manga is based on the popular novel, Musashi written by Eiji Yoshikawa.

Musashi Miyamoto is a well known samurai. His legendary fight with Sakaki Kojiro lies in every mind. But, who is Musashi Miyamoto actually? Where did he come from?

He was born with the name Shinmen Takezo. Being a dependable boy, he grew up with a strong heart. Later, he became a cold heartless fighter. He was so poor. You know, at the time when wars happen, the landlord asked young boy to join the army? Takezo went there with his best friend. They were caught in the middle of Sekigahara war. They pretended to be dead to survive. They realized how small and weak they are. From that moment, Takezo started to grow a mission inside: to be a great samurai. He started with a stick, first. But, he defeated many people with that. It shaped his skills.

  1. I just found this manga after read about Takehiko Inoue a creator of Slam Dunk..
    I look at the story and it totally different..
    This manga is serious action while Slam Dunk full of funny scene..But I think I will follow the manga coz there’s a katana .. I love Katana

  2. of course the plot is different. Inoue sensei is visualizing the novel. It’s not his original idea, anyway.
    I think he’s done a good job. The story is easier to understood through picture, right?

What do you think?
