If i remember even the official .hack link art book shows an image of Midori with more than what rippon has. Still Kazetrigger if you want to translate the stories i can scan some after we move the conversation.
@Kuukai - Congratulations. What type of bonuses do the items give?
Kuukai wrote:Yeah, just watch the replays you have more than 300 comments for. There's a little icon next to the ones with unclaimed items. It's how you get weapons too. At first I tried a Chim Crown which autoblocks, but autoblock isn't as useful as in G.U. so I went with umm, I think it was Warrior's Blood, which was x1.5 damage. At that point Ovan was on my level. Not sure if there's one for combos, but some items' only purpose is to reduce mission requirements. One for combos would be nice.
Kuukai wrote:Now, Thanatos Report. I need to rewatch this like seven times. Somehow the NAB manages to retrieve the "Origin" (Aura) from The World, presumably in order to keep it safe from Mama. David picks this up for Reiko, who then meets with Fluegel, playing dumb about Mama even though he wants to help. He talks a lot about nothing, which is what Fluegel does, and she seems to doubt his abilities, which imo is a huge mistake, he's Fluegel for crying out loud. Then he gives her a 13th Bansyoya file, but I don't think they ever explain what it is. David brings the Origin back to America, where Mama's agents immediately begin to close in. David decides to strike at the heart of the beast, and with a badassery worthy of, like, a real-life version of Haseo, he singlehandedly takes out all the guards in Mama's stronghold, and then shocks their leader into dying by pretending to destroy Aura. Oddly enough, she says that they're the ones who named Aura. Unfortunately, Eleanor, his partner for all these years, was really part of a breakaway faction of Mama and now she wants the Origin. He escapes by detonating a grenade in his own face. She chases him for a year, eventually cornering him in Yosemite. He takes her out by being awesome again, but there were even more agents and he's getting ready to die so he removes the origin from his eye, puts it in his finger, and throws it into the river.
But there's no rewind button on this thing, and I want to hammer out a little more of what just happened. I'm pretty confused. Tanaka from the movie is in America (I thought maybe he said it was in a dream but I want to rewatch), he finds the Origin, the Doubleware crest glows in his eyes, and then there's a quote from Nietzsche.
Kuukai wrote:Matsuyama said 2025 is the end of the .hack timeline. That leaves literally four days for Tanaka to have some sort of crazy adventure where everything gets resolved.
But they haven't thrown an "it's over" party yet, so maybe we're safe.
Doing more research apparently sealing Aura into a chip happens in the director's cut ending of the movie? That's cool that it connects to the OVA like that. I need to figure out what disc that's on or what...

Kazetrigger wrote:Also, so people pay attention.
.hack//Bullet MAY have clues that tie in with the movie and the ending. The next few chapaters came out and I haven't translaed them yet, but they involve Ryuuji going into The World as Fluegel to investigate Geist and stuff, so maybe clues will appear that help explain past and future events.
So, PLEASE read and discuss .hack//Bullet.

Kuukai wrote:EDIT: Wow, watched the pilots. Sora Yuuki's name was originally Yuuki Aoi (azure), and her love interest was named Yasuhiko. Way more blatant, feels more like a retelling than an installment. The love theme is bigger and the themes of courage and "access" are more apparent. Also it seems like they chose a town with waterways to symbolize the way technology just surrounds people and is part of life.
