Shenmue is being made into an anime series



Shenmue, the series that is somehow both a jiu-jitsu revenge saga and a slow-burn slice-of-life drama about forklift driving and collecting capsule toys, is being adapted into an anime series

It’ll be a joint production between Crunchyroll and Adult Swim (like the upcoming Blade Runner: Black Lotus series), and Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki will serve as executive producer. It’s being directed by Chikara Sakurai, who directed the second series of One Punch Man, with animation production from Telecom Animation Film. Shenmue: The Animation is planned to run for 13 episodes, which means they might make it halfway through the first game.
