I think Iwao always had a feeling that someone might come after him for the mirrors one day (which is why he hid them so carefully), but it's also a good point that he chose to, and had time to, write a note for Ryo to leave on his desk on that particular day indicating he must have had at least a few minutes' warning somehow.How did Iwao know his death was coming and leave Ryo that note when Master Chen's letter didn't arrive until after he died? WHO WARNED IWAO??? And if he was warned, why did he say "it can't be, you!" when Lan Di revealed his identity? Nothing about that whole situation adds up to me, and it's always bothered me...
Regarding the "It can't be... you!" line, the original line in Japanese is open to a slightly different interpretation, and I don't think Iwao knows exactly who it is. I've written a blog post discussing it here:
So true! Someone ends up sleeping with the fishes in the Harbour every time someone buys a can of Grape Fruda.Bell Woods is a money laundering front for the Chi You Men.
The Yokosuka World Guidance from Enterbrain is actually even more comprehensive in laying out the button sequence for the QTE machines.as linked by another member on another thread. there is a japanese shenmue magazine for sale on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323336690646
looks like the magazine details how to beat the QTE and other arcade games - im pretty sure ive never seen the "combo" list online before.

And there is no real way to actually beat them. They are endless.
I wonder why Shenmue didn't have another sparring partner besides Fuku-san that you could access at any time, it would have made training moves far more enjoyable in my opinion.
Will we cross paths with Xiuyings brother in Shenmue III?
Am i imagining some old rare footage of Ryo on top of a train at some point?
In the project Berkley video there was some concepts of an old man with a beard, do we know who this character is?
And a genuine question which i would love to know the answer to but at the same time i don’t want to cause a stir because ultimately we’re getting Shenmue III and that’s all that matters but was there ever any proof to back up the claims of the the infamous 2005 Kikizo article or did Adam Doree purely post the article based on hearsay?
I played both QTE machine up to 10 million points on slowed down Demul with quick saves. It sounds insane and it was insane, it took hours and hours. And even slowed down to a crawl, especially the boxing machine left no frame to waste. I was long looong humanly impossible to play this by regular means. I didn't pay too much attention to the inputs so I can't say where they possibly loop.If its pre programmed sequence I guess it loops after some time? Thats a 1000 inputs in the guide, anyone tried it after that or TAS script or such?
