Special Features


Editorial Reviews

The third broadcast series based on the PlayStation 2 game .hack//G.U., .hack//Roots (2006) continues the imaginative designs and intriguing storytelling that characterized .hack//Sign (2002) and .hack//Legend of the Twilight (2003). The role-playing game known as The World is infested with PKs: Player Killers who needlessly slay their cyber-opponents. Haseo learns about PKs the hard way during his first game. He's revived by Ovan, the leader of the largely defunct Twilight Brigade that searches for the mysteriousKey of the Twilight--which Tsukasa pursued in Sign. The Brigade still has a few members: elegant, intuitive Shino; obnoxiously upbeat newcomer Tabby; and long-suffering Sakisaka. Pitted against them are the sinister members of the TaN guild. The rival guilds pursue Haseo, who possesses a mysterious talent that will affect the fate of The World. Koichi Mashimo directs with his familiar, assured skill, and the special effects are impressive. .hack//Roots will please fans of the earlier series and introduce newcomers to the attractions and dangers of The World.

The Limited Edition Boxed Set includes a T-shirt, a soundtrack CD, and a demonstration disc for the PlayStation 2 Game .hack//G.U.//Rebirth. (Rated 13 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

It was the year 2015 and for millions of gamers it was the year 'The World' came to an end. Caught within a mysterious fire, all the datacenters containing the worlds most popular game was destroyed, taking with it all the information about the game. Taking elements from what was to be a different game, 'The World' is reborn as 'The World R:2'. However as millions of players, both new and old flood the servers, they soon discover that this new version isn't as forgiving as it's previous incarnation. Being one of these new players, Haseo finds himself not only the target of countless Player Killers, but of two rivaling guilds, who hope to use him in pursuit of their own agendas. Featuring the original creative team from .hack//SIGN. Genre: Action/Sci-Fi/Drama. THIS VERSION IS THE ARTBOX with T-Shirt, Sound track and Game Demo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another .hack// series AWESOME March 16, 2007
I own this on japanese dvd and I'll tell ya, this is only beaten by .hack//sign. This series has better animation, and more fighting. But sign had a wack story line. Well anyways If your a .hack// fan or if you play the games, or if youve seen either sign or roots on cartoon network I recomend this item. I guarentee you wont be disapointed

3.0 out of 5 stars ....Meh. September 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
Great package.
GREAT package...

This anime will bore the nuts off a tree.
Unless you know this anime, and love this anime, don't rush into a purchase.
The games were fun and silly, but longwinded. This anime does more of that but without the action of the game, and with even slower and less poignant dialogue. I was hoping it would be like //SIGN where there was talking but it felt the characters connected and solved a mystery. //ROOTS is a lot of talking that goes nowhere and means nothing. You can definitely play the games without knowing anything from this anime series. The only part it fills out for the gamer is Phyllo's placement within the game; though he doesn't show up in the game, his legacy is handed down.

You have to be hard core to enjoy this anime.
