The fight choreography was really well done, and the voice acting fitted perfectly.

Very nicely done \:D/
No doubts about the music tracks, but I wouldn't have guessed the sound effects would be so nice on filmed material :king:
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for watching, everyone!

I really wanted to convey the spirit of Shenmue with this one. The last one we did (SHENMUE: SUKA HIGH), we really just made a short fight scene using characters from the game. With this one though, we didn't want to just tell a story or do a scene involving these characters, but rather really have that Shenmue atmosphere saturate every aspect of the film. I'm so happy that you guys enjoyed it.

Dude. Absolutely amazing!!!! Thank you so much for this!

One thing I REALLY love about this film is how it answers a question not mentioned in the games. What the fudge has Goro been up to. And the nod to Tom was awesome too!

I nearly teared up at this.

Awesome. 10/10

Absolutely fucking fantastic! Like Shenmue: The Gang Edition, this was clearly made for fans by fans, and will only ever really be understood by the aforementioned.

I love all the little idiosyncrasies:-

- Low quality audio dub
- Iffy lip-syncing
- Nagashima's abrupt, mid-sentence pauses
- Enoki's 'brothers' making an appearance, complete with the dude with yellow shades
- Shenmue sound effects and grunt sounds

The choreography is very well done, too! Hopefully Shenmue III's will be as smooth and cinematic :D

I'm so happy that you guys noticed the little things in this. One of the biggest things that prevented me from doing this project sooner was the dialogue. For our first Shenmue film, all of the dialogue was ripped right out of the game (courtesy of Shenmue Dojo's audio files from YouTube). That kind of limited the story we could tell, because we basically had to make the film based around the existing audio.

For this one though, I just tried my best to do impersonations of the characters. Not only that, I really had to add on filters to get the audio to the same quality that I remember from playing these games on Dreamcast (just that really bad compressed sound).

It was both a blessing and curse to decide to dub this whole project. While shooting, it made things really easy because we didn't have to say all the lines as per the script, since the off lip-syncing was all part of the effect (and charm). But in editing, I gotta say placing the audio was the MOST TEDIOUS PART. There were a few spots that I got a little lazy with the audio, but hopefully nobody notices.

As for the characters, I knew that I wanted to use everyone from Enoki's and Goro's former gang. I knew those two other characters existed, as I remember that fight from the game. BUT, I didn't know what their names were. All I had was that one picture that had Enoki, Nagashima, and those other two guys in it. Had to look them up on the Shenmue Wiki page. I would've just looked them up in one of the strategy guides I had, but I couldn't find it to save my life.

Anyway, I am absolutely thrilled that you guys are enjoying it. This really was made for the fans, and I don't particularly care if it gets seen by non-fans. I just hope Yu-san and company catch this sometime too, as I'd love from them to see it.
