Shenmue the Animation [unknown]



Quote:
At the iconic annual "Virtual Crunchyroll Expo" (held for the first time in digital format), Crunchyroll announced the new partnership with the Adult Swim platform for the production of "Shenmue" - an original anime series based on the franchise of the beloved counterpart game SEGA.

This co-production will be broadcast globally outside of Japan and mainland China on the Crunchyroll and Adult Swim platforms.

"The first Shenmue video game was released more than 20 years ago and we are excited to work with Adult Swim again to bring this franchise to life through the anime series. We look forward to showing our fans more of this action-packed adventure series, ”said Sarah Victor, head of Crunchyroll Development.

Shenmue is a 13-episode anime series that chronicles the adventure of Ryo Hazuki. After witnessing his father's murder, Ryo dedicates his life to searching for the killer - a mission that takes him from the Japanese streets of Yokosuka to beyond the Hong Kong metropolis. In search of revenge, he will soon find out that mystical forces are involved, and in the meantime he is training to become an expert in martial arts.

"The Shenmue world is fascinating and unique, and we're excited to work with Yu Suzuki (the game's creator) to turn his epic creation into anime and make bestial martial arts," said Jason DeMarco, creative director of Adult Swim.

The production of Crunchyroll and Adult Swim "Shenmue" is directed by Sakurai Chikara in the Telecom Animation Film studios, managed by Sola Entertainment. Video game creator Yu Suzuki is also on the team as executive producer.

Recent collaborations between Crunchyroll and Adult Swim include "Fena - Pirate Princess" and "Blade Runner - Black Lotus". Fans eager to see the launch announcement can register for a free Virtual Crunchyroll Expo badge on crunchyrollexpo.com and can access the Crunchyroll Industry Panel in the V-CRX On-Demand section.

After the crap-fest that is Shenmue 3 game, I sure hope the anime will actually give us a satisfying ending this time. Not like this:

How are you going to adapt it in 13-episodes? It sounds like they're going to adapt both Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 so I guess they won't meander around as much as you can in the games .

Why an anime now? Why not remake the first two games in a modern engine as well as releasing the missing chapter of Ryo Hazuki's adventures on the boat to Hong Kong instead?

I thought the same when I saw Shenhua in on the poster, but then I remembered barely anything of note happened in the first game. They can get through it in three to four episodes.

As for why they're not remaking the first two games... money, of course. Producing an anime is a lot cheaper. I mean, they had to raise funds through donations just to make the third game, and we saw how it turned out.

Who asked for this? I thought Shenmue 3 did a good job killing a lot of the nostalgia people had for this series.

Some things get an anime in a last ditch effort to boost sales of the source material.
