This week we saw our heroes fight their way to the epic conclusion of 1999’s Shenmue. Here’s the recap of episode 5: Equal. Unlikely Heroes We open with a rewind back in time from last week’s final shot that left Ryo and Guizhang knocked out after engaging each other in combat.

Welcome back to my Shenmue analysis, this time for episode 4 Shackles. This analysis will have SPOILERS of the anime and the games. The episode start with Shenhua, it looks like she is in the cave, Lan Di appear and Shenhua is surprised about that, then Ryo wake up and we saw that this was another nightmare that Ryo had.

In the next scene we see Ryo in a travel agency, he is trying to find the ticket to Hong Kong, Ryo is reading something in this scene, maybe a book to learn mandarin? we can see Ryo with this book in the boat scene in the anime trailer as well, maybe we will see in detail about this in other...
This week we boarded our forklifts for episode 4, titled Shackles. Dark Visions As with Daybreak we open to another of Ryo’s nightmares. This sequence will look very familiar to anyone that wasted too many days in Shenmue 2. Lan Di is present once more, but this time a mysterious Chinese girl Ryo has never met is present too, stalked by the cartel leader. Once again Ryo wakes from this vision in a cold sweat, just as the immediate danger to the girl is made evident. This dream sequence would serve as the only appearance for Shenhua in this jam-packed episode focused on the drama building in Yokosuka between Ryo and the Mad Angels gang. Working Man In a travel agency, Ryo is shopping trips to Hong Kong and needs to raise 150,000...

The episode begin in Bailu Village, Shenhua walking while talking the prophecy poem, Mingyang Lei tried to talk with Shenhua but Shenhua was so distant in her own thoughts that didn't noticed Mingyang there. Shenhua talked about the poem with Minyang, she wanted to know who is the "he" on the poem. Minyang doesn't know but in an act of jealousy he said that this guy must be pretty weird to cross the sea just to visit Bailu Village. Minyang said to Shenhua that a nearby village is holding a night festival soon. He wanted to know if Shenhua wants to go to the festival with him and...
