Cedric Biscay basically confirmed something is happening this Saturday, so it seems he is reliable. It also sounds Iike there might be one or two people on here who already know what it is.
Same here, but if the Anime is a continuation of the story in a major way (aka invalidating S4) then I won't 'take it', I'll be too pissed to even watch it... Probably.I really hope it's not an Anime. I'll take it if it is but I'm still kind of hoping it's game related. The ultimate dream would be IV but since it's pretty much not gonna be IV, then I would take DLC over all else.
IV > III DLC (Baisha?) > Anime > Manga.
Only Shenmue 3 is shit.
Anything other than Shenmue 4 or something that officially ties up the saga is going to be a disappointment. They need to stop faffing around and get the series over and done with.
I completely disagree. Something like a shenmue anime detailing the events up until 3 would get people ready for a 4th game without having to buy and play the last 3 games in the series. More interest = more sales. Even if it's a spinoff, if it leads to a better shenmue 4 because of a bigger budget then I am totally down for it. The big picture will always lead up to shenmue 4.Anything other than Shenmue 4 or something that officially ties up the saga is going to be a disappointment.

I agree, I don't understand how this series could potentially be getting another spin off before its completion that may never happen. Shenmue flopped commercially, and despite being loved (see: e3 2015 reveal) it's still pretty niche. The reboot had a tough development cycle and the final product was subpar. I don't see how anyone could think an anime is what this series needs. And while an anime could be great, I don't expect it to be.
What a weird journey Shenmue fandom has been for us haha
