Product Description

After the battle at the upside-down castle, everyone but Tsukasa is returned to a regular field in "The World". Did Tsukasa die? What happened to him? Captured by a previously friendly unseen force, Tsukasa reappears with parts of his memories, thoughts, and feelings "missing". Is this really Tsukasa or just a copy of the character’s data? The other players have their own problems as well - Subaru discovers that the Silver Knight have been hiding messages from her with the latest request by the System Administrator threatening to end with disastrous results!

Amazon.com

The questions surrounding the nature and identity of the mysterious Tsukasa spread like ripples in a pond, roiling the Myst-like game World. When Mimiru suggests they meet for snacks and shopping in the real world, Tsukasa, who has somehow returned from the dead, doesn't understand what she's talking about. His identity is somehow linked to the Key of the Twilight, and the search for it is causing increasing violence and a disregard for the rules. Silver Knight, Subaru's trusted lieutenant, begins disobeying orders, causing her to disband the Crimson Knights. She loses a violent confrontation with an unpleasant newcomer, but finds unexpected solace in Tsukasa's arms. Director Koichi Mashimo tantalizes the viewer with brief glimpses of a dreary, gray reality that is strikingly different from the pastel colors and imaginative designs of the cyber-world. Obviously, more is at risk than an elaborate online game. (Rated 13 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

I was surprised by the soundtrack.

For Tsukasa, who is trapped in the game while his body lies comatose, it is the promise of a return to a normal life.

The music changes based on the emotions of the characters which makes the series seem more real.

Format: DVD
Each of the pieces of the .hack bundle presents a different vision of both the real world and its imaginary counterpart - The World. Like Rashomon, they offer use a set of varying viewpoints and challenge us to form our own opinion. In this, the video series, the characters believe that a secret artifact, the Key of the Twilight, hold the means of solving the mysteries of the virtual universe. For Tsukasa, who is trapped in the game while his body lies comatose, it is the promise of a return to a normal life.
For others, the key spells power, or wealth. But in a sense, it is really a red herring, distracting the viewer from the more subtle dramatic interplay taking place among the characters. For this series isn't really about the game, but those who play it. For some it has come to replace live, and for others it is only a game they play for fun. Who is right? - we are offered only vague signs and portents to make our own decision.
In this set of episodes the real story is the unfolding and development of two characters that previously held lesser roles - BT and Subaru. BT's avatar it one of cold, self-centered sensuality - perhaps, though, it hides a deep neediness and loneliness. Confronted with Sora, who only sees other players as tools, she finds a reflection of herself - and is disquieted by it.
Subaru, however, takes her place as one of the heroines of the story as her feelings for Tsukasa put her in direct conflict with many of the Crimson Knights. The results appear disastrous, but in the end we are given a flash of understanding about both her own bravery and what underlies it. We are reminded vividly for the second time that The World is only a reflection of the characters' realities.
Is there a tragedy coming? Or transformation and healing?

Format: DVD
.hack//sign is a very creative series. With 4 video games, and 26 episodes of //sign, and several of //dusk (unreleased in America to my knowledge), it's an expansive series. This collection of episodes (15-18) has nothing particularly spectacular. Warning, this series is not fast-paced. If you like action, get Trigun, or Neon Genesis Evangelion. But for those who love a deep and intricate storyline that will captivate you, get into .hack//sign.

Format: DVD
Containing some of the series' best-scripted episodes, this whole volume is proof that SIGN is at it's best during quiet moments when we learn more about the characters. After the intense cliffhanger of the last volume is resolved, things slow down a little. It's the calm before the storm as the next volume will start heading the party towards it's inevitable confrontation with The Voice tormenting Tsukasa.

Tsukasa himself takes a backburner to some extent once we find out what has happened to him, as these episodes are largely devoted to character studies of the two women of the party - B.T. and Subaru. As the DVD jacket suggests, Crim also plays a large role, his relationships with the women acting as a catalyst for revealations about them.

Crim is a decidedly good man, but he's only human like everyone else. In this volume, we find out that offscreen he's committed the faux pas of giving B.T. mixed signals by meeting with her in the real world in spite of the fact that he already knows he's not going to return her blatant interest in him. This leads to an uncomfortable scene in which he's forced to gently but firmly refuse to see her again offline, leaving a humiliated B.T. to struggle between any loyalty she owes Bear and her jealousy of Subaru, who she knows has a bond with Crim that she never will.

Subaru, meanwhile, pays for her championship of Tsukasa as she watches the Crimson Knights disband before her eyes, throwing her into The World as most players know it for the first time. At first Crim is there to protect her, thoroughly enjoying the knight in shining armour act, but in a case of really lousy timing his job forces him to leave again while she's still overwhelmed.

Format: DVD
Though the episodes that are on this DVD, episodes 15 to 18, have not yet released in the US, I have seen these (along with the rest of the series). Although the Japanese and English dialog differs slightly, it does not change the story between the two releases, and I feel that I can give an accurate review of this DVD. These episodes concentrate on the development of the various characters in Dot Hack Sign, and the history behind some of them are explained. Dot Hack Sign DEVELOPS SLOWLY, so do not expect anything major to happen...though there are some pretty big twists in this volume. It is not until the next three DVDs that the mysteries behind The World begin to unravel in earnest. The First episode of the next volume, "Tempest," sets the stage for the end of Dot Hack Sign, and in consequence the beginning of the Dot Hack Playstation 2 games and Dot Hack Liminality. It is to be noted that the rest of the Dot Hack Sign DVDs only have four episodes. Only the first two volumes have five episodes, and the remaining four volumes (including this one) only have four episodes. I do not think this was entirely necessary, because I think they cut out one episode called "Evidence" that was between "Castle" (which ends the last DVD, Gestalt [German for "shape," if you were wondering]), and "Depth," which begins this DVD. This episode that seem to be cut out only reflects back on "Castle" and the previous events in Dot Hack Sign, so it is no great loss. I'm not positive, though, but I am judging this based off of the "next episode" ending sequence following "Castle" on the Gestalt DVD. It says the next episode is "Depth," clearly bypassing "Evidence." This would mean there are only 25 episodes, but the original count could have been ignoring Evidence because nothing happens in it.Read more ›
