Shenmue the Animation Episode 1
To make matters clear, the Shenmue anime reveals that Suzuki can tell a better Shenmue story in this media format that what he could achieve with a video game three years ago. There are 12 episodes left but the anime already looks like a capable enough medium, -even if an imperfect one- to continue where Shenmue 4 would pick up in the future, and that alone is a huge win.
