Bit of interesting context for the Shenmue anime delay and honestly, I'm glad to hear it. Covid delays were obvious and inevitable, but the commitment to fair wages and conditions for the workers in an industry that often looks the other way, even if it means pushing back anticipated releases - Jason/Toonami have my respect. The wait is agonizing, but when we do eventually sit down to watch Shenmue the Animation, we can do so knowing it was made with love for the story and respect for the animators.

If not a trailer shown then at least some early footage I would hope...like storyboarded footage or something. Something to whet our appetites :)

Maybe even an announcement of English voice dub cast?

My guess is they will show a tease of something though...be it a trailer or footage or whatnot. Or maybe it's just another talking heads session with nothing to show? Will find out soon enough.
