Synopsis

The characters from previous .hack//G.U. Games and .hack//Roots receive an email from Ovan. He is requesting them to go to Hidden Forbidden Festival where is set up a mysterious summer festival. There they find an AIDA Chim Chim who wishes to peacefully co-exist with the other players of The World. It then transforms into the word "Returner", so they assume it to mean that Ovan will return to The World.

Firstly, the synopsis currently written for this OVA is inaccurate, to a point. The point of this OVA is almost the same as Unison was for .hack//SIGN and Offline Meeting for .hack//UDEDEN. It plays the role of the OVA where many characters from the preceeding game/anime meet up.

Also, I personally feel that watching .hack//G.U. TRILOGY isn't a nessecariy requirement for viewing this. Trilogy does nothing but summarizes the three games, to a point, in CGI form. I'm stating it wasn't good, I am just saying this isn't a sequel to Trilogy, as MAL would have you believe. In fact, watching Trilogy is only nessecairy read more

It's a sequel to the three .Hack//G.U. games for ps2 console. I personaly completed all three games and the storyline was outstanding! This special episode contains spoilers of the 3rd .Hack//G.U. game, but it also shows something the game doesn't after ending.
Dfenitely recommend to watch this if you're a fan of .Hack or played the games!

Well so I finished .hack//ROOTS some while ago and that was a huge waste of time
Then I read somewhere that .hack//G.U. Returner was somewhat like Roots so I watched this in hopes of an answer to end of Roots (as I have never played any of the games)
And I found myself bored to tears again through another .hack anime

Story:
I had no idea what was going on through most of it :\

Art:
The art was amazing! So crystal clear and amazing!

Sound:
Really good quality sound

Character:
I knew most of the characters from .hack and then there were a few I didnt know but was able to figure out who read more

Before i start my review i would like to point out i have actually never played the game and in my personal opinion you don't need to have played the game to understand what the series is about.

Story:
The story is a nice character meet-up episode ,it's like those special episodes or scenes that come after the anime's end showing us what happened after. It's nothing too big or special but it is highly needed as leaving us in the dark would make us wonder what happened and even drive some people to hate the series.

Art:
It has the typical art,nothing extremely nice but it's not bad read more
