Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Tensions between reality and the cyber-realm of the "the World" intensify as Wave Master Tsukasa remains trapped within the game, unlike the other characters who log on and off when they choose. Bear believes that Tsukasa is actually a girl in a coma whose consciousness has become divorced from her physical existence, but Tsukasa dismisses this notion. As they search for the mysterious Key of the Twilight, the characters converge on an upside-down dungeon that echoes Befuddle Hall in Winsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland. Crim remembers how to reach it from earlier versions of the game; Tsukasa simply teleports there. Confronted by an aged man who "failed as a father," Tsukasa announces, "I may have found it"--only to be struck down by the Puss-in-Boots figure who has guided him. Every revelation introduces new mysteries as this intriguing adventure continues. (Rated 13 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Tsukasa has been captured by the Crimson Knights! Subaru talks with him and tries to understand his plight, but the unbalanced Sora stages a jailbreak and disrupts everything! Confusion mounts within the group as Mimiru confronts BT about her betrayal. Mimiru decides to give it all up, but after a chance encounter with another player, she changes her mind. As the clues unfold, everything points to a powerful legendary item called 'The Key of the Twilight'. Could this be the source of all the trouble in ‘The World’? Everyone seems to think so. Alliances are formed and plots are hatched as all eyes fall towards uncovering the whereabouts to this new item.

5.0 out of 5 stars The third installment to Dot Hack Sign May 14, 2003
By Texel
Format:DVD
Though this DVD currently isn't out at the writing of this review, I have seen every single episode of Dot Hack Sign (all 26 episodes). While the dialog differs slightly between the US and Japanese versions, it isn't different enough to cause any discrepancies between the two releases. I feel, therefore, that I can give an accurate review of this DVD. Dot Hack Sign is a highly story-oriented series, and relies on dialog, story, and character development. It should be noted that Dot Hack Sign's story DEVELOPS SLOWLY. Impatient people who are disinterested in character development should probably not watch this. There isn't any action in the series (other than a few brief fight scenes, and an awesome fight scene in the second-to-last episode), and there is no violence to be seen. This sets it apart from other anime titles that may be seen as shallow, due to their exploits of gore and flesh. The episodes featured on this DVD develop Tsukasa's character quite a lot, and the third episode, Castle, reveals a lot about the secrets behind The World. It also has some very frightening events. If anyone who's watched Dot Hack Sign up until now is disappointed, this might be a turning point. I cannot speak for others though, because I was hooked on Dot Hack Sign since the first episode. Dot Hack Sign is my favorite series out of anything, anime, cartoon, or live-action, and I highly recommend it to people who want to embark on a long and great story.
Recommended to: People who enjoy long, elaborate, wonderful, and exciting stories, and people who enjoy stories that have compelling characters and events.
Not recommended to: People who prefer flashy animation, violence, action, or other adultish content that is generally associated with anime. People who hate intricate stories that develop slowly SHOULD NOT WATCH Dot Hack Sign! You'll likely be disappointed and give it a bad review. =(

4.0 out of 5 stars Turn The Brain Power Up A Notch...You'll Need It July 6, 2003
Format:DVD
The mysterious "Key of the Twilight" continues to take center stage in this third volume of the slow-moving, philosphical ".hack" series. Tsukasa, a player trapped and unable to log out of The World, an online role-playing game with millions of players, begins to become more outgoing, and goes on a puzzle-solving event, or mission, with buddies Mimiru and Bear.
This volume shows more of the beautifully and cleverly done flashes to the "real world," which have already been shown in earlier episodes. The real world is often depicted in grainy black and white, without the characters faces being shown. The flashes in this volume are more serious, and played out like a silent film. A doctor and presumably the parent of a comatose child argue over whether the plug should be pulled. These sequences are classic: intercuts between the angry conversation, to black screens that quiver with the words of the conversation. Similarly, Tsukasa begins to flashback to the real world as well, in what seems to be a traumatic, abusive childhood.
In The World, groups have formed to attempt to find "The Key of the Twilight," a key that supposedly could a) reset The World or, b) throw it into chaos or, c) release Tsukasa from The World. To get it, two groups--Crim and B.T. tailed by Sora, as well as Mimiru, Bear and Tsukasa--open the "Eye of the Twilight" and encounter "the broken man," an old figure floating around mumbling and ranting, with broken bits and pieces of information which only Tsukasa seems to comprehend.
This is a major turning point in this series, which, if you've watched this much of it, should have you confused and addicted. The great art, and beautiful, but sometimes ill-used music, can compensate for the long, philosophical, thought-provoking story.
