I normally don't write reviews for things but after watching this I definitely needed to vent.


So first, it's not the worst thing I've ever seen I guess? The aesthetic was interesting in that it used two different styles for real and game worlds. The animation on the faces was fluid and detailed, especially on Kite.

There were also a few fun moments when Sora starts playing the game and learns the controls.


So now the bad stuff.

The biggest issue is that this movie feels incredibly far removed from the rest of the series. Sure, there's the callback character designs to Kite, Balmung and Orca, Aura's read more

I'm sorry for keeping this review short, but there's not just that much to be said about .hack//The Movie. It's just a pile of wasted potential, and if this combined with .hack//Link are really supposed to be a swan song for the .hack// franchise, it really makes me sad.
For some reason this movie has thus far received some surprisingly positive feedback at least in MAL, so I'll try and explain why I didn't like it as thoroughly as I can.

SENOMUNI is basically the fifth version of the same story, after SIGN, TWILIGHT, ROOTS and QUANTUM. At this point they only keep making more just to support the videogame franchise and not because it has anything new to show us in terms of context. Having followed the franchise through the years I can appreciate how it keeps trying to flavor the exact same premise and correct past mistakes. At the same time, WOOPS, it keeps making newer ones so it never manages to get something overall better than the rest.

So what new minor improvements this version has compared to the older ones? Basically it is read more

Well I just finished this movie and decided to do a review of it. Note that some of it is my own opinion - take it as you will.

The story takes place in the year 2024 where computers and technology are evrything. It centers around a girl named Sora Yuki, a normal middel school girl who is rather out of the loop from the rest of her friends and classmates. However, this all changes once she starts to play the online game known as "The World". On her fist experience in the game, she gets involved in an incident and thus begins her read more

Both anime tell story about The adventure in Virtual World MMORPG

+ From friends become lover
+ In some fight scene, MC fighting in group not alone
+ Both MMO (The World & SAO) turn become dangerous game which not only affect the players but also the real world
Both anime tell story about The adventure in Virtual World MMORPG

Similarity :
+ MC lack confidence against itself
+ From friends become lover
+ In some fight scene, MC fighting in group not alone
+ Half of the story about MC learn about leveling his/her avatar

Different :
+ Gender Bender (//hack)
+ Harem (Accel World)
Similarity :
+ Action-Adventure anime set in Virtual MMORPG

Different :
+ In webdiver player avatar is same with human version but in hack the player even can choose opposite gender
+ .hack// is almost like MMORPG (farming & leveling), something not found in webdiver 
+ CGI Movie
+ Based from games
+ MC must fight to save his/her "world" from destruction
both are movies about a world famous game that is hacked by a virus that could destroy the world and only a certain group of people can stop it by gathering an army of avatars and waging a war through the game 
Similarity :
+ Figthing in virtual reality world
+ CGI movie (The Animatrix 1st Arc is CGI movie if you don't know)

Different :
+ The animatrix is much more darker, violent, and heavy atmoshpere compared to .hack//
