With all the Shenmue merchandise being made it occurs to me that I require a Shenmue branded Zippo lighter. I don't even smoke, or need a lighter. I just need a Shenmue Zippo lighter, if you know what I mean. :-k

You could always go on the official Zippo website and personalise a lighter with whatever you wish. Had the Heavens taken this into consideration, Beverly Hills Wharf wouldn't be inundated with Shenmue fans holding forged lighters beating up the poor wild man :sad:

Sorry for the double post (though I'm sure the statute of limitations has passed :lol:), but can anyone explain what in the hell these things are:

I always imagined them as some kind of marshmallow-like thing, but, looking at them now, they have the appearance of something submerged in liquid.

I'm guessing they're rice crackers. There's another jar in the shop (shown below) which has just one left.

The "liquid" effect may be an unintentional side-effect of the way they've modeled them.

Surely the blue things can't be rice crackers, too?

Well... I'm going to say they represent wrapped crackers or cookies of some kind.

It does look a bit like they are immersed in blue liquid but I don't think that was the intention. Perhaps they were trying to simulate the tint of the glass but the result is not really convincing.

The first two jars are definitely senbei (Japanese rice crackers), but I'm still not 100% sure what the blue snacks are. I will say, though, that they're definitely blue and not tinted by the glass.

Thanks for clearing things up, Ziming and Testament! The mystery of the blue stuff may forever remain a mystery, but it's great we now have an idea of what they were going for :)

Just a couple of days after Sega Europe tweeted about Shenmue II anniversary, Sega of Japan tweeted about Dreamcast anniversary:

Children's hospital charity?

Why can't they donate the $$ to the Paypal instead?

Tell that to the parents of one of the children in that hospital and see what reaction you get.

But if more $$ goes directly into Shenmue 3 then the greater it will sell allowing the global economy to be stimulated.

Since combating childhood illnesses is a global effort then surely funding Shenmue 3 is the best way to do this.
