Any Dreamcast babies in the house? There’s a pretty good chance that if you had a Dreamcast back in the day, you’ve played Yu Suzuki’s Shenmue, the much-hyped 1999 release. Whether the game was good or not is something we’ll let the players decide, but you’ll be glad to know that an anime is coming to Adult Swim and Crunchyroll next month!
Premiering on February 5, the anime will be available in North America via the aforementioned channels. The Shenmue anime voice cast includes Austin Tindle as Ryo Hazuki, Scott Gibs as Lan Di, Natalie Rial as Shenhua, and Cat Thomas as Nozomi Haraski.
Directed by Chikara Sakurai of One Punch Man Season 2 fame, this 13-episode series will have animation produced by Telecom Animation (Lupin III, Sengoku Basara).
