Shenmue the Animation

Fans Get a First Look

By Epic Dope Staff | October 10, 2021

If the Blade Runner: Black Lotus anime announcement wasn’t enough for you, the companies have announced Shenmue the Animation as a part of their epic collaboration as well.

Adult Swim and Crunchyroll’s joint project, Shenmue the Animation, is scheduled for a 2022 release.

An action-packed English-subtitled trailer was also released as a first look at the upcoming 13-episode anime.

The trailer shows a tragic scene where Ryo witnesses his father’s death at the hands of the series’ main antagonist.

A teaser art was also revealed with the trailer. It features Ryo aggressively attacking Lan Di, the man who killed Ryo’s father, while the latter blocks his attack with a stern look.

All I have to say now is, expect tons of awesome action scenes and captivating fight sequences as this is not just any regular martial arts anime.
