I hope it doesn't become a dissappointment like .Hack/Key Of the Twilight. The artworks seems attractive enough, though i have no idea about the story or characters. Well... we'll wait and see then, eh?

Typical .hack/sign artwork. But yes she does, but with pink hair. ^_^

.hack//Roots

Anyone see episode 1 yet? I checked animenfo and it doesn't seem to be licensed. Seems like it's the prequel to the new .Hack//G.U.

Question: if I haven't had any introduction whatsoever into the .hack universe, can I still watch this? Or does roots require previous knowledge of any of the anime series or games?

You should be okay, I would figure. They're starting a new "universe" with new characters and whatnot. I'm sure anything that has "historical" meaning will get enough explaination to get you through it.

Since I've never played any of the games, seen any of the manga, or read any of the books, I'm not well-versed on a lot of characters and "mythology" at all. But I haven't found that an impediment to enjoying the story that I do get.

BTW, the HDTV version is very, very nice. I hope a sub group latches on to that...

I'm a .hack// fan, and well. I hated the first episode. Why? The storyline didn't seem anything special, even though they do hint some Tri-Edge and stuff on the OP, which may lead us to something nice in the future. The Animation is alright I suppose, does it's job decently. But that OST, is KILLING ME.

I mean, someone should promote a raid to Bandai and stuff. Who the hell would get ALI PROJECT composing the OST for an anime? Like, they're not bad, but all of their songs sound the same. The Mai-HiME PS2 Game Opening and Main Theme Asura Hime, is almost a copy of the Rozen Maiden Traumend OP. And so on. Not to mention, those horrible synths they usually use didn't fit the the anime at all.

Other than that, I demand Kajiura once again, and I'm not going to keep on watching these series, at least not until it comes out as a Batch or so.

I'm a huge Kajiura fan, but I can understand why they didn't pick her. She's got so many ongoing projects and only-just-finished projects right now that anything she produced for Roots would probably be mostly substandard. Saying that, they probably could've got better than Ali Project... I like their OP material but the Roots OST so far is just... meh. It feels like they're deliberately trying to be Kajiura and falling quite a bit short.

Probably. I'd still heavily recommend digging in though, especially if you want to play GU later. The original 4 games should be going for pretty cheap now, and SIGN isn't that hard to get hold of either. GU seems to be making quite a lot of allusions to earlier material and with Roots coming before it, that might pick up on some of the stuff too. You could probably enjoy it, but it'd make it a whole lot more enjoyable to pick up the games and SIGN.

Which reminds me, I still need to buy Outbreak and Quarantine >.>

Bump for great justice!

Episode 1 of Roots is out now from ASource. I'm torrenting now and will comment after I watch.

Shouldn't this be back in fansubs since the subs are now being released?

You are a bit slow in the news department, are't you?

(note: in the .hack universe, "fragment" was the prototype game that evolved into "The World".)

i should have been more specific. im depressed that there is no world-wide game:P come on how awesome would that be? honestly though. too much WoW. must find something better..

"One thing the majority of .hack fans have agreed on was the production of a real .hack game with online abilities. Be aware that fragment is an ORPG, not a MMO and that the online abilities are limited, thus the full title: .hack//ONLINE X OFFLINE. Fragment is not a full-fledged MMORPG like "The World".

All big things start small.

Unlike the .Hack universe, which has The World as the ONLY MMORPG on the planet, there is actually existing competitors in our world.

It would take time to finalise the gameplan, as well as locate means to compete with other, already established MMORPGs.

ah yes, so true. as someone who has played quite a good number of diffrent mmorpgs, i believe that if The World were to be developed in a way to mirror itself from the .hack series, it would deff. be great compeition for such games as WoW, EQ2, etc. not to mention the huge support from current .hack fans.. and alot of anime lovers are gamers as well. i have huge obsessive ideals for the perfect mmorpg so i apologize for my unlikely dream for one.

I got it over night and have begun to watch. Play by play wall of text below.

Spoiler:


I like the OP, its a lot more upbeat than the one for SIGN. Granted, SIGN's OP set the tone for Tsukasa's situation, and I hope this OP will reflect the main characters as well. While the show had its dark moments, it did seem much more upbeat than SIGN. I think the show can work well either way. I didn't quite catch the exact wording with which the cat pc described the purpose of Ovan's guild, but it seems like they are much more aware of the history of the Twilight events than most players. We see dark Kite in the OP and a few other nasties in the ED, so i hope that there will be some dangers darker than the PK guild, TaN. The whole "girlie men" scenario was a little creepy, it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Everything is wild speculation at this point, but i wonder if any of the new characters are new avatars of people we met before... Ovan in particular. I don't think the dark kite is actually kite the original, but i wouldn't be surprised if Ovan was the old kite, now a mentor for the new generation of dot.hackers through the Twilight Brigade. I wonder just how far the player corruption goes in so far as the TaN guild is concerned.. I used some MMORPG terms in my summary since I do play Final Fantasy XI: Chains of Promathia. By no means would you need to be an MMO fan to get into this, and it doesn't even seem like knowledge of the original game is neccessary... yet. Though if they call on the 8 phases plot, knowledge of the games wouldn't hurt. I'm most curious how the AI's will fit into this, as the story of Morgana and Aura drove the plot of the "classic" .hack saga.

Edit: Dingo, it's in mp4 format, so you may need to download quicktime or the alternative codec pack.
