[Haruka Terui (role of Shenfa)]
Congratulations on the animation of Shenmue!
I play Shenmue from “Shenmue III”.
I remember the audition and the game recording at that time very clearly. I am deeply grateful that I was involved in the historic world of Shenmue and that I met a wonderful woman named Shenmue.
I was hoping for the day when I could play Shenfa again, but I never thought that dream would come true so quickly.
As a viewer, I’m looking forward to seeing that world in anime.
We hope that all Shenmue fans and those who will experience the world of Shenmue will be looking forward to it.

[Haruka Fushimi (role of Nozomi Harasaki)]
I’m Haruka Fushimi, who is in charge of the voice of Nozomi Harasaki.
It is new to her memory that she was pleased while she was confused when she was contacted by the manager that she was decided to be Harasaki.
I’m really happy to have the opportunity to participate in a work called Shenmue, which has been loved by many people for a long time.
I actually played the game and became completely captivated by the world of Shenmue.
I would like to wait with you to see how attractive characters are drawn.

[Ryuichi Kijima (role of Takaaki Chen)]
We will play Takaaki Chen in the anime “Shenmue the Animation”.
It is a great honor to be able to participate in the animated version of Shenmue, the legendary title in the game world.
Chen Kisho looks cool, but he cherishes the heat contained inside it.
Please look forward to the adventures of Ryo Batsuki, who will become an anime and start moving anew, and the battle of Takaaki Chen!
