Anime based on Yu Suzuki’s video game series on the way
With Shenmue 3 finally crowdfunded and released last year, Yu Suzuki didn’t wait another 18 years to bring us more of the characters. A brand new anime based on the game series is on the way, in partnership between Suzuki’s Ys Net and anime network/publisher/distributor Crunchyroll.
Shenmue: The Animation will be a thirteen episode series developed by Telecom Animation Film and directed by Chikara Sakurai, with Suzuki serving as EP.
There’s no date for the release yet.
