I say doesn't live up to promise because there could be more action and trying to solve the coma deal, and it would only add to the series.
If the "children in a coma" sounds familliar, it's because the .hack writers who created this could come up with nothing original to advance the story, resorting to Tsukasa's dillemma from SIGN. Only this time to make it even more "dramatic", the comas have reached epidemic proportions, claiming dozens of victims! ( One can only imagine the glee of injury trial lawyers going after the fictitous C.C. Corp. - owners of The World franchise - in a class-action lawsuit if this was an actual event! ) It is this mostly turgid development which causes the entire series to grind to a screeching halt.
The rest plays out in a predictable style, as the heroes go to ground trying to figure out how to rescue Rena, while avoiding the Cerulian Knights who seek to delete them from the game as bad influences. Their leader Kamui and her delusions of grandeur form the only interesting sub-plot in this set of episodes. In a rather wasted "guest appearance", Ginkan/Silver Knight from SIGN attempts to thwart this even-more-repressive version of his old Crimson Knights, failing miserably. His fate is also deletion for interfering with their "witch hunt" for unauthorized player modification.Read more ›

As with volume 1, it could be a great anime but rent it first. If you can't watch it, it doesn't count for much. Read morePublished on July 26, 2004 by NORTON C. BROWNE
