About the Author
Takehiko Inoue was born in Kagoshima prefecture in 1967. His first major success -- the hugely popular 31-volume long basketball manga SLAM DUNK -- sold over 100 million copies worldwide and catapulted him into the top ranks of Japanese manga artists. Besides manga, Inoue also worked on character design for the Playstation basketball game ONE ON ONE.

Everyone else wrote accurate enough reviews on the story of Vagabond I would recommend reading those. I wanted to share my experience on actually owning the book. Even if you own the previous volumes, I would find a way to own the omnibus edition for the additional features like additional colored pages.
There are LOTs more pages than the product info says but I was unable to find any good websites to verify a change. There are, however, a few youtube videos you can look up just by typing this products name in it's engine which will show you it's significantly bigger than the info would have you believe.
I did a rough count and counted about 700 pages give or take 10 pages.
I'm back to order more.
You can get someone hooked on manga, after reading this one. This one copy would make an surprisingly excellent gift to any action movie fan-plenty of action, humor, and grit. Just tell them how to read it.
For someone new to this series:
The artwork is very good. It's not like a normal manga/comic. There is soo much attention to detail in each cell.
The story is very good as well, I will not spoil it anymore than Amazon's description or other reviewers have.
It is not a material you want for a younger or immature audience.
