More translating pl0x. O:)

Here are translations for the few words on the whiteboard doodles, which must have been brainstorming for the Kickstarter rewards.

1. This image shows the front & reverse sides of a "wishing plaque". This is a small wooden plaque, often having an illustration of the current year's animal from the Chinese Zodiac. A visitor to a shrine or temple writes a prayer or wish they want to come true (passing an exam, good health etc) onto the plaque.

2. A book that contains people's palm-reading fortunes.

Hey everyone, so I was watching Kenji Seang's 2nd interview from 2013 with Yu Suzuki in Monaco(Hosted by Shibuya Productions nonetheless), and towards the end these images came up.

Edit, nevermind, they're not new #-o

They're in the same style as the others in the OP and i've never seen them talked about or discussed:

Definitely Guilin and definitely not Shenhua's house (unless Shenmue has been chopped down) :lol:

Image
And could this be our "Sage master of the Nanquan" in Choubu? Does anybody know what that Kanji says on the entrance?

Image


Sorry if its nothing but I haven't seen these anywhere and je ne comprends pas le français. Has Kenji spoken about these images and where they came from? Perhaps we didn't think too much about them because we didn't realise what we were looking at?

Those images have been around the net since Shenmue II came out on the Xbox. Fans were once able to access Microsoft Game Studios website and download all the promotional artwork and screenshots used for Shenmue II. These images were included with it.

This looks like the design of a (White) Tiger Mirror.

Indeed....damn that's an impressive design. I think it's original too, Google reverse search is giving me nothing at all!

But more likely....

A return of the Tiger Swallow style

Ryo is the tiger. I don't think it means the return of the tiger swallow style.

a 3rd and possibly 4th mirror perhaps? Remember Shenmue II, the 4 animals on the diagram and the keys in the 10th floor of the ghost hall building where you discover Yuanda Zhu? 4 animals, Dragon, Phoenix, Tiger, and Turtle. Maybe we still know nothing of the Tiger and Turtle mirrors?

No, I was referring to the June video where the master of Nanquan was seen the first time.
