I want it to all just have been a game that someone in the real world was playing.
That would make my day.

Haven't watched all the hack's yet but I sure hope it'll be good. I like the idea of those hack stories.

the news so failed to mention the new anime is going to be a video and is going to be done by CyberConnect's own team this time. Mystifies me though, Bee Train has been apart of Project .hack since the beginning (so shove it whiners).

I'll check this out with hopes that it is at least on par with Sign and not Roots, which I dropped.

It would be freakin hilarious if the new .hack anime turned into another Legend of the Twilight except for GU characters, lol!
Good greif, that would be horrible if it ever did. Legend of the Twilight Bracelet was disastrous in terms of adaptation, and my least favourite of the .hack anime series. I would cringe if Link were like that, but I highly doubt it.

Good if I have trouble sleeping.

Man....hack//Link is SUCH old news. I've known about that for awhile. Everyone's coming out with these huge compilation games (Tales of VS, Dissidia, .hack//Link) I might not play it, and I might. Who knows.

I still need to finish Twilight and Roots though..

It's indeed old news, it was predictable from when the manga got released, then a game of it and so on. Though, we go for facts not rumours since those could be lies and whatever you can tell I cba.

The games are pretty fun, series not really. Hope it ain't as dramatic as most of the others.


I agree that the games are MUCH funner than the series indeed. Hopefully this won't be a let downer. I really liked .hack//G.U ;^;

I thought the .hack concept was great, but I didnt like the anime (any of them) all that much even though they had some very good music. I hope they make it well this time with a studio other than Bee Train (production IG would probably be able to pull this off really well).

Nice.
The game is nice.
I hope the plot will be as nice as the game's as well.
Looking forward to it! =)

... When I read "working on CGI animation"... I guess I can pretty much figure out that there'll be no Bee Train involvement... or so I think. I hope I'm right on this...

Sep 24, 2009 5:43 AM by CodenameStrike

Yeah more .Hack anime. Really looking forward to it!

Rather old news, oh well.

As the others have mentioned, I do hope Bee train is in the picture. Hoe likely that's it.
