Aye, so far I've watched SIGN and Liminality. I already spotted a guy who's selling his Legend of the Twilight Bracelet manga collection (in this country, each of the three volumes has been divided in two by the publisher, so that makes it six), so if I can't get unopened copies, I'll get in touch with him. Right now I think I'll start with Roots.

^.^ Having watched the prequel and played IMOQ/Liminality is a good place to start, odd I haven't heard of a publisher putting out 6 volumes. Which country are you from if you don't mind my asking?

:D hope you can track down unopened copies and have fun with .hack//Roots,shouldn't be too hard to find.

Not at all. I'm from Argentina. Dunno why the publisher (Ivrea) made it six volumes, it kinda makes it harder to track down. And yeah, I loved what I've played/watched so far. I love how the pieces complement each other and at the end it all starts to make sense.

Hey there. I played GU like 10 years ago and just finished all 3, 100%'d Vol 1 and 2, during the New Year's break. I'm now going to watch all the anime series since I love dot hack so much. Replaying my childhood games really made me happy I could cry. Glad this forum still exists :')

I played all the games when I was a kid. I wasn't expecting a forum like this to still be getting activity tbh. Glad it does though!

^_^ glad to see more fans who played the series back when it first came out in the west and are still passionate about the series today~

Are you planning to pick up the FUNimation re-releases or do you have the previous released dvds?

I've watched/ read everything actually. Haha

:D most excellent! A shame not everything has been translated into english though, some manga/novels and afew of the games.

^-^ always good to hear fans plan to pick up the physical copies when the oppertunity presents itself,although most of the time the prices for the games are steep. ^^'

Of course! I know how important it is to actually support the things you enjoy. Especially if you want new content.
Yeah that's unfortunate. I got really lucky when I picked up infection a local resell place had it for 6 bucks!

^.^ exactly,if you want more over then support the series...unless the company has been taking fans for a ride and not bothering to make any good games/stop making them altogether. Sure the mobile games haven't made it over but there was been quite abit of .hack merch released in Japan to keep me at bay :D

Very lucky you found them at that price, IMOQ I paid full price for when they came out here :D Though I did snag the NTSC copies of IMOQ,Special Edition of G.U. vol 1 and 5 guides for $100 or so ^_^

Very true. Even back in the day I really just hoped they would sit tight on trying to release more games and work on a really good mmo that would be Oculus Rift compatible. Unfortunately I just don't see that happening. Especially if they're starting to move more towards smart phone gaming...
GOSH that's a lot. Although I guess even when they came out they were pretty pricey. It just feels like way more now that I have bills to pay lol

Who knows,they may work on a .hack related game now that VR tech has been kicking off and what better game to use than one that incorporates VR technology in the story aswell :D

^^' the seller needed them sold asap so thats why the price was low. Yeah but now they command double to triple the original price,well some of the games do if they are complete and in good condition. >.< damn bills getting in the way of .hack!

That's great man. More like bills getting in the way of everything! lol

^_^ the omnibus is much larger than normal volumes that holds several volumes worth of content and sometimes bonus chapters aswell. There was a release in the US/UK for it :D
