Final Comment

That wraps up our three-part series gathering together the art displayed at a number of shops in Dobuita during the Shenmue The Animation event. The art included a stunning range of concept art, sketches and background art from both the anime and the game, and deserves to be preserved and enjoyed by fans for years to come.
