But I think everyone that already played the game (Hack//GU)
Maybe doesn't like this movie..But that's just maybe..

I've played and finished GU and i like Trilogy...but i do because of the sweet HaseoxAtoli and the awesome battle scenes. And because i learned that, in order to enjoy Trilogy the best, you gotta forget about everything and just enjoy the scenes as they are, because the story is probably as bad as LoTB anime was or worse :P

I am one that hates when movies neither stick to the game or the book series they are modeled after.


So you would've rather watched a condensed, crappier version of the EXACT SAME STORY you've already seen? How boring.

And I'm sure you loved .hack//XXXX, hypocrite. And if you didn't love it, you can get the hell off my planet. <3

You wanna know what AT, just shut your mouth and stop acting like you darn point of view is the law because it isn't. My point with the movie thing was the fact that several movies that are made from a book take out important scenes and then make it so you don't understand what the heck is actually going on. We will go outside of .hack for this one and use say like Eragon. That movie SUCKED, and yet the book was a good book because you could follow along and understand. I never once said that I want movies to follow the storyline of the book they are modeled after completely. Nor did I actually say to do that at all. I was saying they need to actually take the time to research the books or games they model stuff after and use what they learn to make a better movie. Either you accept the fact that your word is not law or you can just get the heck out of here because I am sick of your attitude. Your not a great person nor are you a awesome one your no different than anyone else here really. So get over yourself.

And you wasted your time typing this why? You know how AT acts. Ignore it and just continue discussing what the topic says. he/she's just gonna keep posting, so there's no point in trying to correct the person's attitude.

Trilogy overall wasn't what I hoped for, so I pass it as Mediocre. It just didn't have that "feeling" like it did with the games. Plus, many things that should have been in there weren't, even though this was just a re-telling of the saga. I hate the fact that  Haseo recieved his Xth Form with the power of Innis and "love". x(.I'd rather he  overcame fighting Ovan in the B-ST form by himself rather than Atoli's conscious saving him.

Yes that Exactly what i felt ...

And what most bothering me is .Hack//Trilogy is doesn't fit any of .Hack series.. Like In The .Hack//Returner we can't see the relation of .Hack//Trilogy in there... and that Include .Hack//Links

But then again for someone that isn't know any .Hack series or never play the games must be enjoy wacth Trilogy saga...
The CG was Great and the Fight scene are good but the story is ..... isn't growing,

Well, I think there's another way to satisfied The Fans ... they should give more scene and complexity on the story or make some .Hack//Roots chara apparance in the movie ...
It's better than just cut other chara... and make new story without strong concept....

Hmm... why this bothering me so much, I guess i've to stop over think about this .. *giggles*
Owh... well, ^^

Yea, there is no point in retaliating, just have to get used to it...though i know how you feel Zelkova........


Anyways, what pissed me off the most if of-course how Hasoe got his Xth Form and just the B-ST Form in general, it seemed too.......
"un- .Hack -ish" , if you know what i mean. It reminds me of when Kite changed at the end of XXXX  after he stabbed Aura with his blade and the surge of energy changed him, and made him look almost like AK

Just plain stupid to me, and what caused it, huh? I'm sure it wasn't Skeith>>

Actually, it was. In the Trilogy continuity, Skeith's Epitaph power is manifesting anger.

I thought Trilogy was pretty good, but I don't think I would have enjoyed it nearly as much if I hadn't have played the games. The Ovan fight scene and the ending in general were really interesting, but I really felt rushed through the rest of the film.

Still, I enjoyed it enough to buy the DVD if it came out here, especially if it had english dubs... I like them. I know I'm in the minority, but so what, I enjoy a movie more if it has a decent english cast and no subs, than if it has an amazing Japanese cast with subs. I mean, I enjoy reading, but trying to read and watch moving images at the same time really subtracts fun points for me... which is why I started reading a lot more manga, simply because I have longer to look at the fight scenes after I'm finished with the dialouge.

I'm just gonna ask this here because I really don't see any point in starting a new thread.

Is there a reason Ovan calls Atoli "Atoli-kun" in the movie? I have no idea whether he calls her by that name in the game, because (A) I don't remember whether he even says her name in the few seconds they're seen together and (B) I've never seen the Japanese cutscenes for Rebirth/Reminisce/Redemption.

On that note, I also found it weird that Yata called Haseo "Haseo-kun" before they've even properly been acquainted, though I tried to rationalize that as Yata being his typical better-than-you he so is self...

But srsly. I thought "-kun" was strictly an honorific for close male friends or young boys--not that I know the first thing about the Japanese language. That said, could someone just clear up the conventional use for me? What's the accepted context for "-kun"? Internetz = not helping me right now.

And I'm going to refrain from voicing my opinion about this piece of **** movie because I'm sure there are people who enjoyed it. >_> oops

If I remember correctly -kun means male but more or less its a polite way of speaking to a male to add -kun to the ending of the persons name. Why Ovan says this to Atoli could just be no more than a error on their part but as far as Haseo and Yata whether I am right or wrong it is Yata basically showing some kind of respect not as in true respect but to gain his trust. If you watch most shows the males are always called (name)-kun whether the person knows them or not.

My knowledge in japanese is not that great, but from what I know is that kun, though most of the time is used to younger males or to another male of the same status, it's used on females as well, but is not very common; I think it's used by man with senior status to younger girls.
An example that comes to my mind is from Macross Frontier that Leon Mishima used to call Ranka Lee as Ranka-kun. If anyone here has seen the show and actually remembers.

So, is not an error.

Also Yata calls Haseo with kun for respect, calling him by his name would be considered rude.

At least that's from what I know about japanese honorifics >__>;; Hopefully this answered your question.

I'd have to agree on this.

Romance and action were the best part of the movie. And the music... by gawd I loved the music. <3

Yeah.. true,
But the .Hack//Trilogy is ruin .Hack//Roots concept and Above all It doesn't suit with .Hack//Returner.

And I way more prefer haseo got his Xth Form by defeating ovan... It's more rasional that way...

Why are you trying to apply logic to the storyline of TRILOGY...?

Face it, the movie was all scenes, no story. :P
