Shenmue III added many things to the Shenmue experience, one of the things is the stamina system, or how i like to call, the Food System. Some people enjoy the food system and think it is a nice addition, other people think the food system is bad and should be removed it for Shenmue IV. I’m playing Shenmue III now and now i understand even more the food system, with my strategy i don’t have any problems with the Food System. Some people just buy Black Garlic and continue this way till the end of the game, but it is important to notice that Black Garlic is not even the best food in the game, a lot of foods are better than the Black Garlic, and other foods are the same as the Black Garlic, this are a few examples about this...

Many Shenmue fans know that in the early days Shenmue was called Virtua Fighter RPG, and that the main character was not Ryo, the main character was Akira, also many Shenmue fans know that Yu Suzuki wrote the story first with the name The Legend Of Akira. In this post i want to share my thoughts about the many common things between Akira and Ryo, and if Akira and Ryo are the same character. This post will have spoilers of the games and the anime.

Welcome to my blog post where i will share my opinion about a wonderful theory. This blog will have SPOILERS of the games and the anime. Ren Wuying is one of the most popular characters in the Shenmue series. Ren is an important character in the story. There is a theory that Ren will die sacrificing himself to protect Ryo, in this blog i will share my thoughts and ideas about this theory. Ren first appeared in the story in the game Shenmue II.

In Shenmue III Ryo see Ren again in...
