When is an online role-playing game not an online role-playing game? When it is .hack//SIGN, the anime series about online role-playing. But just because it's a tie-in with a PlayStation 2 title doesn't mean that .hack//SIGN should be lumped in with the likes of Pokémon and company. Both the .hack game and the show were created by some of anime's top talents, including character designer Yoshiyuki Sakamoto ( Neon Genesis Evangelion) and screenwriter Kazunori Ito (Ghost in the Shell). The story follows Tsukasa, who is an introverted, habitual gamer in "The World," an online virtual environment set to "sword and sorcery" mode. One day, Tsukasa discovers that he can't log off or get back to his body in the real world. The mystery deepens when he discovers that he's been granted magical abilities far beyond those of other players in The World. Finding a way back to reality will require Tsukasa to master his new skills as well as (gasp!) get along with other people, specifically a sword-wielding girl named Mimiru. Offering intriguing storytelling in its own right, as well as wry commentary on lives spent online, .hack//SIGN is highly recommended for anime fans and Internet addicts alike. Volk Lindsay

Hack//Sign: Terminus 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
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.
