.hack//SIGN Terminus-- A Great Ending to a Great Series
Let's just start out by making one thing clear: .hack//SIGN is one of my favorite animes. I enjoy the .hack franchise in general-- the video games, animes, mangas, everything. .hack//SIGN is a rich, confusing, and plot-heavy anime, and Terminus is the final DVD. It wrapps up this amazing series with a bang. The ending is really a setup for the video games (a 4 volume set for the PlayStation2 console, titled .hack//INFECTION, MUTATION, OUTBREAK, and QUARANTINE) but is great nonetheless. The DVD version of Terminus has two extra episodes: Evidence, the recap episode that just recaps what happens throughout the series, and Intermezzo, a side story about a group of three school girls who all raise a character to be the most powerful, but lose the character data while protecting a newbie. This loosely ties into the //SIGN storyline, because the powerful character happened to be an aquantince of the Mimiru character or something. What makes the Terminus limited edition DVD so special, however, is that it contains the fabled "Ep.28" of the anime, titled "Unison". The episode has no real storyline, just all the characters from the video games and anime meet at a bar and then have a strange dance party in the Net Slum area (seriously, the way some of them dance is just plain weired). So all in all, if you like .hack//SIGN or anything .hack, this DVD is wort a purchase. If you're not into Project .hack or drama animes in general, don't even bother.Was this review helpful?
