dvir said Great printing, bad binding. I like this manga very much, but since the quality of it is subjective find no reason to expand. Yet, I believe my opinion of the quality of the binding is very much objective, and it is not very good: unlike the first volume, for some reason this one's pages seem fall off and, "spines" form in the back of the book (which is odd, since the first volume is thicker, yet i had no such problems with it).. "Follows the book! OUTSTANDING!!!" according to Larry L. I just found out about these titles, bought and read them before I could throw out the box they came in. Being a martial artist and student of Iaido (Japanese sword drawing), I am very Familiar with the Musashi story. Yet these books (vol I & II ) are told from a fresh perspective that keeps you tuned in. I can't wait for the rest of the series to follow.The artwork alone makes these books worth buying.Also worth a look are the Lone Wolf and Cub Series. The best omnibus manga I've purchased to date. Charles This 3-in1 volume monster of a book is very well presented, perhaps the best quality trade paperback for an omnibus manga you will currently buy. I own Naruto (soon to be Bleach and it's practically the same quality), Until Death Do Us Part and Lone Wolf & Cub omnibus mangas all of these are pale in comparion to this VizBig Edition manga! When this book came in the mail it was a little heavy but upon opening the package I understood and immediately accepted the fact that I will do e
But will Musashi’s growing feelings for his childhood friend Otsû prove to be a fatal distraction in his match against In’ei, the austere master of Hôzôin’s deadly spear technique? Takehiko Inoue’s Vagabond is loosely based on the novel Musashi, Eiji Yoshikawa’s fictional account of the life of Miyamoto Musashi. Musashi sets out for Nara intent on challenging the warrior monks of legendary Hôzôin Temple. This classic samurai tale has been adapted into numerous television series and films, including an Academy Award-winning movie. An international bestseller, this must-read manga is now available in a VIZBIG Edition: three of the original graphic novel releases collected into one volume, featuring color artwork, updated text and bonus content.. Striving for enlightenment by way of the sword, Miyamoto Musashi is prepared to cut down anyone who stands in his way. The quintessential warrior philosopher, Musashi authored A Book of Five Rings, a theoretical guide to military strategy still used today. In his own version, Inoue approaches the pinnacle of manga artistry with richly detailed line art and a lyrical, fast-paced narrative. But the path to enlightenment is an endless journey, and to get there through violent means—by way of the sword—makes mere survival an e
