A few books offer a comprehensive guide to Shenmue II characters, but they were never released outside of Japan, so you need to be able to read Kana to understand them:

This one is by far the best, with details on every character featured in Shenmue II

Hope that helps!

^ Just to clarify Peter, when you said "this one is by far the best" were you referring to the 3rd or 2nd one you posted?

Yes; and I might as well announce properly here that the character database I was working on is very nearly finished and will be released soon :mrgreen:
I have some scans from the Shenmue II Perfect Guidebook (basically the character profiles) that a member called Eek the Cat originally scanned (don't think he's around anymore); I don't own that book myself, but I do own the 'Shenmue II Complete Guide' which includes some profiles that the Perfect Guidebook doesn't. I'll post the scans I have along with the database once it's done :D

So watch this space - names and profiles on all 696(!) Shenmue II characters translated directly from these books coming very soon :D

I have been waiting sooo long to hear (read) you say that.
:mrgreen: cant wait to review it :mrgreen:

I have a mysql database that is hosted on the net, if you want I can integrate it and it will be accessible over the net as a shenmue resource.
