A virtual multiplayer online role-playing game exists known as "The World." In "The World," there is an event held in the Dungeon of Nankoflank that Mimiru, a character in the game, undertakes with Bear, another character in the game. Mimiru confesses to Bear that she is not doing the event for the treasures or experiences, but for the memories and experiences of when she first started playing. The two later meet a certain character named Mimika, and together, the three proceed through quests and events as Mimiru learns the meaning of the game.

That’s when .hack//SIGN aired and, while I had a high opinion of it at the time, more exposure to anime and thinking about the story soured me on it. The characters were fine and the music was straight fire (still one of my favorite soundtracks - Yuki Kajiura remains a force), but the narrate got strange and ground to a crawl at points.

So I booted this up in the hopes of capturing some of what I loved about the series so long ago. Once the OP came up, ...
