As an expression of gratitude for the heroes of both the ".hack//Sign" and the ".hack" game series, Helba has prepared a special event for all the characters to find the newly established "Twilight Hot Springs." The characters can get their well deserved rest and relaxation by having a soak in the wonderful hot springs, but there is only one problem—the hot springs are hidden and there have been mysterious player murders. With the only clue being the word “GIFT," the race has begun to find the culprit and the location of the hot springs.

Okay so let's start this monstrous OVA review.


It's plain and simple, Helba decides to create her own world by telling all the players and characters from the .hack series that she is opening up a hot springs and it's their job or quest to look for it, and apparently whichever group (series) finds it first will get a prize. Aside from the main story there are small little commentaries and tiny problems that the characters have with each other which seem more amusing than the main objective, it's literally like all over the place and it's hard to keep track on who has a problem read more

The .Hack franchise has always been loved by a select cult following, and hated (for the most part) by nearly everyone else. Some series in the franchise are worthier than others, but unfortunately with the advent of anime like Sword Art Online, Accel World, etc. new comers to .Hack find less and less to like.

It isn't as novel a concept as it was on release, and to have a great grasp on the series you have to play through the .Hack video games, which are expensive as well as a bit dated (the first game series especially).

I myself am a fan of the read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: September 5, 2014. Supplemental Review for .Hack//SIGN

This may be pointless of me to review an OVA that is only 1 episode, but I don’t mind reviewing stuff related to an anime that I previously reviewed. With that said, here’s .Hack//GIFT.

Helba has created the Twilight Hot Springs for the heroes from the .hack game series and the heroes from the .hack//SIGN series. Now the characters race to see who finds it first, and to solve some mysterious player-killings.

To be technical, this is a Bee Train production and the drastically different art style and cartoony character designs are done on purpose read more
