Based on the CyberConnect2 HIT GAME, now will be released in a CG Movie!

The Movie will be placed in the storyline of each .hack//G.U. games trilogy. The story follows Haseo, a player in the online MMORPG called The World:R2 at first depicted as a PKK (Player Killer Killer) known as the "Terror of Death", a former member of the disbanded Twilight Brigade guild. Haseo encounters Azure Kite (believing him to be Tri-Edge and blaming him for what happened to Shino) but is hopelessly outmatched. Azure Kite easily defeats Haseo and Data Drains him, reducing his level from 133 to 1 and leaving him without any items, weapons, or member addresses. He is left with a mystery on his hands as to the nature of the Data Drain and why Azure Kite is in possession of such a skill.

Eventually Haseo gains the "Avatar" of Skeith. Acquiring the ability to call Skeith and wield his abilities, such as Data Drain. With Skeith as his strength, Haseo begins the quest for a way to save Shino.

He is seen seeking out a PK (Player Killer) known as Tri-Edge, whose victims supposedly are unable to return to The World after he PKs them. Haseo's friend, Shino, was attacked six months prior to the events of the game by Tri-Edge, and the player herself, Shino Nanao, was left in a coma.

"Deepest Memories" by Lien


Dec 5, 2015
While I love the .hack games, I've never been able to play the .hack//G.U. games for PS2 (they are pretty expensive games these days). I feel that the movie rushed through the three games without really explaining a lot. I felt a little confused as to what was going on, but if I played the games I probably would have understood.

The CGI animation in the movie was great and I found it fitting to the story. The characters were animated beautifully and it did make me think of the PS2 era. The appearance of a certain boss creature from the ...

Mixed Feelings
First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.

Hard to comment this anime without spoiling. As it's apparently the compressed version of 3 games. So I will only say a simple thing that wouldn't equal negativity with cause of compressed game into animation.

So we get a bit story of .hack//roots and from there we get to see all sorts of cool battles, powers and some new plot points. I did enjoy for the most part. Consider it kinda special bonus for .hack// franchise fans/players.

It's like watching video game cutscenes in a row. ...

It's one thing to try and adapt a game into a movie. It's got challenges, things to cut, and you really sacrifice a lot in the transition. We have a different beast here, trying to adapt 3 ENTIRE GAMES INTO A SINGLE 90-MINUTE MOVIE.

I played the games back in the day, and I have the plot fresh in my mind. You can easily make a movie out of each game, honestly. The problem with the material is the illogical emotions displayed. The game asks from the player suspension of disbelief to a high degree, and it isn't that big of a problem since you do ...
