Oh that's a shame
Still, in all the excitement, tonight I found out that the Virtua Fighter anime is on TMS' YouTube page! I just watched the 1st episode and was genuinely surprised. It was very comical and lighthearted which isn't something i'd expect with VF, but it was cute and charming all the same. And of course, it was awesome to see Yu Suzuki's name in the credits.
I wonder what approach the Shenmue anime will take? I can't see it going the goofy, light hearted route like VF did, but I do hope there's room for a little humour here and there. Maybe I enjoyed the VF episode because things the world feels like it's on fire, so something funny made me feel better!
I agree. What I don't want is grimdark as you want a bit of tonal shade. I can see arguments with Ren being pretty amusing ^^Gonna give that a watch. Ive never seen the vf anime
Im hoping shenmue 1 is a little more darker and depressed, to show ryos agony. Hints of humor with tom, fukusan, goro and ren is a must though
Reading the comments section from the lamenting proverbial Ryu Ga Gotoku fanbase stirred my brain a bit. One fan seemed livid as to why Ryu Ga Gotoku is not receiving an anime adaptation while Shenmue is. From a business sense, this makes perfect sense as the former has been more successful than the latter.
