Yo.

Ryudo, you never told me how pretty and fancy the Hazuki Dojo has become since I left. I like it...a lot. In fact, I'm thinking, why not just stay here?

I have many reasons to smile while thinking about the arrogant people that now have tears in their eyes, the ones that are responsible why SHenmue Dojo was such a failure regarding too many things to list them here. But among this stockpile of assholes were a few brave men that have done so much. I remember great 3D models, awesome Shenmue music remixes, breathtaking tweaks, funny fan videos and naughty hentai drawings of Shenhua.

Strange memories on this nervous night in Shenmue Dojo. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era—the kind of peak that never comes again. Shenmue Dojo in the middle 2000s was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something.. . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. . .There was madness in any direction, at any hour. . . . You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning, that there was a Shenmue 3 or at least a good fangame. . . And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. . . .

So now, less than five years later, you can go to a steep thread in Shenmue Dojo and look downwards, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.


That was the fatal flaw in Dino's trip. He crashed around Shenmue Dojo selling "a better Shenmue" without ever giving a thought to the grim meat-hook realities that were lying in wait for all the people who took him seriously. All those pathetically eager Shenmue freaks who thought they could buy a sequel and salvation for three mouse clicks. But their loss and failure is ours too. What Dino took down with him was the central illusion of a whole life-style that he helped create -- a generation of permanent cripples, failed seekers, who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of the Shenmue Culture: the desperate assumption that somebody, or at least some force, is tending the light at the end of the tunnel.
