Something I would like to see in the Shenmue anime is mental QTEs. They could present it as Ryo is anticipating his opponent waiting to strike and then you get the audio confirmation of a correct input.

One of the most fascinating things to me about the anime is what in-game day will the anime end on?

Will the anime stretch out to Feb 23 1987 as the starting point for his arrival in Hong Kong like it is if you don't have a save file for One.

What weather will the anime use for everything (the free roam, cutscenes etc)

Will it include just the key Nozomi phone calls? Or other miscellaneous conversations.

Little details like that I'm absolutely excited for.

I do hope the anime expands on the story, especially if it is mostly only covering the first game. We've all played the game to death so just a beat for beat version in a different format won't work for me, nor do I think it would take advantage of film as a medium. It would be cool to see how they adapt the story and if they choose to expand upon the characters with new scenes.
