Great volume, Bad vizmedia production.

by -

Loved the volume and read it in one sitting only problem is that the book fell part as i was reading it. Saw on other shopping sites, and a few reviews said there volumes did the same thing. So if you do decided to get a vizbig just be ready for this outcome.

An excellent historical drama.

by

I have all 12 of the Viz BIG editions, I have greatly enjoyed this wonderful glimpse of Japan's violent past. This is not manga for the misty eyed, there is some pretty rough things in here, rough times for many people. Some just hapless pawns and some sought them out. I do recommend handling the books gently, bending and breaking the spine is a bad thing. My books have no creases in their spines.

One of the best if not the best Samurai Manga

by -

One of the best Samurai manga of all time.
And one of the best looking omnibuses out there.

I bought volume 1, read it, savored it, then proceeded to order the whole set afterwards. This is one of the centerpieces of my manga collection.
More realistic than most samurai manga, with all the grit minus the flashy swordplay.The are on the side is great when displaying this in a shelf.

I heard some issues with the spine. I tend to be very careful while reading it so I have not encountered this yet.

One of my top 3 Samurai Manga
For realistic gritty samurai action with the best artwork, go for Vagabond
For romanticized samurai action with lovable characters, go for Ruruoni Kenshin
For gritty samurai action with a touch of fantasy, go for Blade of the Immortal

"Danaged

by -

When I received thi book I was extatic on finding it in pristine condition. it had tiny wear on the top left corner of the book but that would only be seen if you literally squinted at that spot. I would go as far as to say that it has even less "damage' then what you would find at a bookstore. the story is amazing as well. if your into samurais and wanting to understand how the world was back when they roamed, you will love this book. heads up there is nuduty tht you should be aware of. it is there is one page of a page picturing a "nude girl" around 12 pages or so into the book. its nothing to truly worry about as its just a shot showing the shoulders and back of a girl without clothes.

Vagabond is a no-brainer

I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the compelling story and amazing art. Upon finishing this volume, I knew I had to complete the collection.

Great manga. Good quality.

by -

The art and story in this manga is fantastic. If you are a fan of Takehiko Inoue or just looking for a great read, you will fall in love with this series.

People complain about the VizBig quality but I haven’t had a bad experience with them yet. The pages are thick and cover feels nice enough.
