Which workday route are you on? If it's day two (moving crates from near the cafeteria to warehouse #3), then you need to go down to warehouse #17 immediately after you finish work. You'll find Mark being beat up by Mad Angels members.

Better question- have you learned the Swallow Dive from Gui Zhang yet?

Sorry for not mentioned it again but I have unlocked this too !

Well I have my theory about this (and I hope that's not true) : I don't move the crates following the correct sense, I will try the reverse this time.

I'm actually moving the crates from near the cafeteria to warehouse #3 indeed.

Have you ran into the Mad Angels on that specific crate route? They show up after 3:00 when you get close to the warehouse and ambush you after you "taxi" one of them inside.

I'm trying to learn Mandarin at the moment and from what I know so far 'h' is usually pronounced as 'huh' while the 'e' in words is usually pronounced as 'un', so I thought it would sound more like 'shun-hua'.


i think the Japanese pronunciation is closer to Shen-fa, while the Chinese should be closer to 'Sha Hua' and the English should be Shenhua (the standard phonetic of 'hua' being correct).

at least thats always been my understanding.

I finally got it and my theory was exact. I could not unlock the cinematic because I used the wrong route between the two suggested by the map. Ryo needed to go to Warehouse 3 only by the right side when you're entering.

Wow it's a very picky game design. :shock:

That's exactly what I was thinking too. Glad you got it! Now spend all of that dough on capsule toys! \:D/

I completed Shenmue I and began straight away Shenmue II as if the two episodes were part of the same game. And what an odd feeling, I now understand why some fans complain so much about the difference of atmosphere.

About Shenmue 1, my vision is still the same. It's more an experience than a true video game until the excellent last hours with the story gradation (apart the Chai fight which lacked of epicness after the Mad Angels chapter). It is probably hard to enjoy the full game if you're a newcomer or someone who did not know the early 00's era.

That's why we should recommend to all newcomers to do the two games in a row and insist strongly on that point. Shenmue I has no sense without Shenmue II from a modern point of view.

Oh, and I got the famous Nulldc issue with Nozomi bike cinematic without music. ](*,)

Weird how time doesn't pass at all during Duck Races.

It's because you're actually in Purgatory. Izumi was the gatekeeper, and defeating her has allowed you to enter and leave at will.

Finally got Gold Medal with exact time of 46 seconds.

2nd Feb in game, Fangmei's not initating convos with me, still being called Hazuki-san, despite being beaten up at Man Mo Park. Will she start initiating convos again closer to 3rd March? I only got as far as being asked about steak I think. Bumped into her and Eileen at Man Mo Bistro as well.
