.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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
