Most recently, Vagabond took a year off from the main character (Musashi Miyamoto) and focused on his eventual rival Sasaki Kojirou. Addmitedly, mangaka Takehiko Inoue is a far better storyteller than Kishimoto, so this switch (I should say these switches, considering a new Sasaki arc has started) was all part of the story and was masterfully done.

Spoiler for slight spoiler:
Yea I'm just really disappointed by the way Kishi handled it. I never really noticed that too much in Vagabond, the transition was really good.
