Shenmue the Animation will premiere on February 5th on Crunchyroll and Adult Swim.
The English dubbed version will air in North America on Toonami, Adult Swim’s signature anime block, and Crunchyroll will stream the subtitled version worldwide outside of Japan and China.
A story of revenge and self-discovery, Shenmue debuted first as a video game by Sega for the Dreamcast in December 1999. Since then, its captivating characters and riveting storytelling have created a cult following around the globe. Now over 20 years later, the 13-episode anime adaptation aims to capture the same essence of mystery and thrilling martial arts.
The anime will see most of the core voice actors return from the video games.
