Hi all! I've recently started my own Shenmue blog. I am intending this blog to be my space to share my thoughts, reflections, trivia and little known facts about the series - writing is the other passion I have in life, and I have wanted to somehow combine these passions for a long time now, hence Shenmusings. Some posts will get into my own personal history of the series, and of course my experiences with this very forum.

I hope you find the blog informative and enlightening to read - here are all of the posts I have made so far:

Discovering Shenmue (Part 1 of 2)
Discovering Shenmue (Part 2 of 2)
The Shenmue II Character Database
Antiquity Trees and Flower Girls: Symbolism in Shenmue (Part 1 of 2)
Antiquity Trees and Flower Girls: Symbolism in Shenmue (Part 2 of 2)
Men in Black Mix Up
The Phantom Teahouse Lady (And Other Devious Guidebook Lies)
Mundane Over Magic? (Shenmue III Ending Analysis)

It's been a while again - however lockdown has given me the time to finally write up this post, about the naming confusion of two Blue Spiders members in S3:

Thanks again to @LemonHaze in his assistance in figuring this out! Stay tuned for a follow-up post clearing up the name confusion of the Red Snakes :)

Just finished reading these. Great to finally have those characters cleared up! I'm glad you were able to find names for all four lesser thugs too. It's amazing what answers lie hidden in the game files sometimes.

Thanks man, and thank you for finding that Wu Shen Hall scene! That was what really clinched it for me that Lu is the bigger guy. And the detail about various shopkeeper’s ranking at the hall was cool to know too, it will be included in my S3 Character database (coming soon!) 😎
