In this review i'm going to talk about the manga "Vagabond" I
Chapters- 299 Status- Ongoing

actually didnt even know this manga existed till I clicked the random manga button when onemanga.com still had it's manga viewer but I have become addicted to it since the first chapter lol here goes nothing.

This manga is a fictional retelling of one of the greatest samurai in Japan's history called "Miyamoto Musashi" and referred to as the "Sword Saint"

In this manga it starts out seeing the main character "Shinmen Takezo" being shunned from his village and living on the outskirts of town and in the woods he only has 2 childhood friends "Hon'iden Matahachi" and "Otsū".
Running away from home with Matahchi at age 17, Takezo joins the Toyotomi army to fight the Tokugawa clan at the battle of Sekigahara. Despite Takezo taking the other army's generals head the Toyotomi army still loses the battle. All said and done Takezo and Matahchi run away after taking many lifes fight the left overs from the opposing army and make thier escape. Takezo and Matahchi manage to survive the battle, and afterwards swear to become great samurai. But after their paths separate, Takezo becomes a wanted criminal, and must change his name and his nature in order to escape death.
Takezo eventually crosses paths with a monk named "Takuan" with Takuan's help Otsu finds Takezo and they take them back to Takuan's temple. during this period Takuan has a idea for Takezo to change his name to "Miyamoto Musashi". With his new name he sets out to become the greatest samurai and find enlightenment later on his journey.

Overall this is one of the best manga's I've ever read. The art is hand drawn, but not poorly draw, but with a style and craft of it's own. With and intense story line that is well developed and a plot that is well done this is a must read to anyone who like honor, samurai or a great manga in general.



AFTER NOTE
Don't worry about his age at 17 he gains age as the manga progresses to his late 20's



***Warning***
This manga shows some nudity. This manga also contains Intense scence's of blood and gore.(not to worry it all isnt just blood and gore every single second)

I would suggest , to do just enough of a summary, to wet their appetites. So they would read the Manga to find out the rest !!! Idea Neutral
