Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The popular fantasy-adventure concludes as the world of the game grows increasingly unstable. Aided by Subaru and his friends, Tsubasa challenges the vengeful and omnipresent Morganna for mastery of the cyber-realm. As Tsubasa rediscovers his true identity and the role he was destined to play, he reopens the links between the game and reality. He awakens the slumbering Aura and escapes from the game in an emotionally satisfying finale. The alienated Wave Master has learned to love, but Director Koichi Mashimo avoids bathos by underplaying his transformation. Although the story ends with "Return," the disc includes two bonus episodes. "Intermezzo" offers a long flashback of Mimiru and Bear when they were novices at the game; scenes from earlier episodes have been re-edited to recap the main story in "Evidence." Handsomely designed, well animated, and skillfully directed, .hack//Sign stands out as an example of how to turn a game into a series that can stand on its own merits. (Rated 13 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

Format:DVD
Obviously, those who are buying this DVD have followed the series. .hack//SIGN was designed to be a TV series that flows into a video game series, and in Japan they released their product in a row so you can follow the story from beginning to end. In America, the series of SIGN jumped out of the gate around the same time the first video game was relased. Sadly, you couldn't follow the series in America and then plpay the games unless you waited until now (or watched SIGN on Cartoon Network through the summer of 2003) and then play the games. This is the biggest fault of Bandai America. Aside from that, this has been a very interesting, and progressively experimental ride.
.hack//SIGN creates major ripples in people participating in the WORLD (on-line game) as they try to understand the enigma of Tsukasa, who appears to be a comatose player caught in the game. While the actual workings of this phenomena (the comas) isnt explained in the series, or the game, or game OVAs, it is explained in the final series/installment called .hack//Twilight's Bracelt being released soon by Bandai. And once explained, it still doesn't make much sense; assuming the personality in the game is AI, how does Tsukasa regain the computer's memories outside the game when awakened? With headsets, it doesn't play that there is a psychic bond since this universe is about straightforward technology and AI, and not about mysticism. Aside from that, the story works well. A great amount of care in writing and drawing draws detail to words and expressions instead of battles/terror/sex/adventure, and it succeeds brilliantly on that level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terminus-the best .hack DVD out of all 6 volumes March 21, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.hack//SIGN-Terminus is by far the best .hack DVD out there. If you are a true .hack fan then you simply must by this DVD. It contains episodes 23-25 (all of the last episodes) plus 2 bonus episodes. The bonus episodes are "Intermezzo", which focuses on Mimiru and why she plays The World the way she does. The second episode is "Evidence" which was broadcasted earlier in the .hack//SIGN series. This DVD is pretty awesome, but if you buy the limited edition .hack//SIGN Terminus DVD, you will also recieve an extra DVD that comes with an extra episode "Unison".
Unison brings all of the characters from .hack//SIGN and the .hack video games together in conclusion to the first seoson of .hack and eventually leads up to the second season. I give this product a 6 out of 5 (its that great) and recommend it to any .hack fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Information April 14, 2004
Format:DVD
The .hack series wouldn't be right if it didn't end with a knock down, drag out boss beating fight. Subaru, Tsukasa, and the rest of the players take up arms against their mysterious opponent - Morganna. As they foil plans and counter moves, Morganna's rage grows and The World becomes dangerous enough to threaten the real world. Aura must be born to save the game, and for that to happen Tsukasa must discover his true identity and find a way to log out.
This is the first grand battle for the mind space of the net, and success is defined by more than increased player levels. Deeper qualities of character are needed to prevail. Real courage must replace skill points. Expect a few surprises as several characters reveal their true natures. And a strong ending
To make up for there being only three series episodes, this DVD provides to additional episodes. 'Intermezzo' is an interesting side arc that covers some of Mimiru's own story. With Tsukasa and Subaru's relationship taking the foreground in the series itself, this is an unexpected insight into one or the series most interesting characters. Finally, 'Evidence' is a retelling of the main story line with some additional touches of detail that underline the poignant core of the story.
This series has shown consistent strength in concept and story. While it didn't take quite the turns I thought it would it has shown an independent creativity beyond that defined in the game portion of this series. Not every thread is completely resolved, but most a brought within the sphere of imagination. Which is, of course, one of the key themes of the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dramatic ending May 14, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A triumphant victory - and a shattering tragedy - mark the emotionally charged final volume of SIGN.
The storyline can be roughly sectioned into three parts. In the first, the older party members consult with Helba to try to develop a strategy to finally defeat The Voice. Their personal subplots are wrapped up as - among other things - B.T. seems to have finally realized she's been overlooking another good man while she's been futiley setting her cap for Crim, and Bear makes Tsukasa a touching if somewhat expected offer regarding the real world.
The second involves the final physical battles of the series as the party faces Tsukasa's Guardian - losing their best fighter right out of the gate when Crim has to break off the second the crisis begins to finish things once and for all with Sora, who still doesn't understand exactly how serious the situation is.
Finally, the younger party members take center stage as they face a battle of wills with The Voice to wake Aura, the sleeping girl - and presumably thereby free Tsukasa. The Voice does not take opposition lightly - and success will not come without a dear price...
The story is not wrapped up completely, designed to segue straight into the four Playstation 2 video games in the .hack franchise. But it ends in a place that gives you enough to work with to make up your own mind about what happens after the bittersweet conclusion if you don't want to play the games - and that's good enough for me.
With a final 15 minutes that pay off for those who have invested time in the fates of these characters, SIGN fans will not be disappointed.
