Well that didn't take long o.o

Could this be the final Archives or is there maybe still one left in 'em for Guilty Dragon?

Haven't seen anyone posting stuff about the Link one which came out earlier this year. Did it not have any new/unique info? Even if not here's ta hoping this one does!

o-0 tell me about it, I wasn't even aware they had another in the works then after checking FB there was this saying its out already.

Hmm I'd imagine there will be one for Guilty Dragon but then again they are releasing those Visual Works with all the amazing artwork inside ^-^

xD you did post the thread for 04 (viewtopic.php?f=34&t=19433) awhile back, not sure about anything of reverence in it. You would need to ask Kuukai or someone who can translate the contents.

Guilty Dragon has almost 100% coverage with the books they're putting out, they even include the script. I guess there could be an Archives with the concept art, but that would be it...

Embarrassingly I haven't picked up 4 yet, although you'll hear from me when I do. I'm heading to Japan next week and it was in my Amazon cart, but it decided to sell out yesterday. Kotobukiya might still have a copy. If I'm lucky (I have work to do Sunday at Comiket) I hope to attend the CC2 event. From what I hear, last year they had information on long-lost projects like Strelka Stories, so who knows what they might present. Standard media disclosure embargoes don't seem to apply to it (although they barely apply to Matsuyama anyway).

Unfortunately, I probably only have about a 50/50 chance of attending, and there's probably only a 50/50 chance of juicy sequel talk of any sort. So that puts me at 25%. But I guess we'll see!

^_^ glad to hear that Guilty Dragon's content has mostly be given, though I was expecting them to keep pace with more Visual Works seeing as there is plenty of new cards available.

:O madness! Hope you'll be in luck to find a copy in store, saves the wait from amazon but they only take afew days to arrive (for me atleast). d(^_^) with luck you'll get to the CC2 panel and if the fates allow then they may even talk about .hack.

A gauge on how well the Archives are selling would be nice, then again it must be selling if they keep making these softcover versions @.@

Also my copy arrived in the mail, theres a section at the back that mentions...secrets (?) I'll need to double check the wording.

Geez you got that fast! Love that coverart its so nice an different from the rest of the archives series!

Is the Guilty Dragon story still ongoing? I've not even tried ta keep up with news on it or anything. Seems it won't need an archives book in any case.

If they do talk about anything .hack, hopefully its about bullet! Cause among other things we're nearly 3 months without a new chapter release @_@

:D yuppers, amazon.co.jp shipping is pricey (normally £20, only £8 this time) but only takes afew days to arrive. ^-^ its nice to see softcovers and not need to worry about obtaining a Limited Edition version lol

Yeah Guilty Dragon is still getting chapters released, surely CC2 is making plenty of money from the micro-transactions xD

With any luck they'll have a new .hack//Bullet soon for you, unless Kazetrigger is taking longer to translate due to a busy schedule.

This is just the header for the section, but this section is a reprint of the new information Nakasha revealed in .hack//ch (I hope there's more than just that!).

I just got my copy in today and boy it's beautiful. They have enough concept and work put into this to be on par (content wise) with high end MMOs!

The last section seems like a recap of the last episode of .hack//Ch along with some information that was given at other events. There's the NAB timeline and the Mama timeline along with some new(?) information on the last couple of pages like a relationship chart, some info regarding Bullet, and extra snippets of information from the movie.

It looks like it may go a bit more in depth than what they did in .hack//Ch or maybe it's because all the information is presented in text that makes it seem like it's more.

How do you buy that in the Japanese Amazon? I am still pondering for how to send it outside from Japan.

If not, then can I have photo scans from those archive books - Archive 4 & 5? Does not have to be perfect as long as it is high quality. Just send it by email and I will check it later.

@.@ To buy from amazon.jp, goto the website and select "English" from the top of the front page. Then you make your account (existing uk/us accounts don't work) but its easy to see the fields they want since its translated, then order whichever archives you are after. Note some items don't ship outside Japan but the archives aren't restricted :)

Items like the latest Guilty Dragon set,Puchi sets and the 2 tapestries (wall scrolls) don't ship outside Japan so requires a deputy service.

Okay, when you mentioned "deputy service" for those items, does it mean an authorized permission by the company that made them? Or is it local only?

Simply put you request e.g. easyauctionjapan.com to order them on the japanese amazon via a request form, you put money into your account by paypal to cover the costs. Then it is shipped from amazon.jp to EAJ's warehouse, you then pay the the shipping (and other fees) to send them from the warehouse to you @.@ The amazon store gets its items from CC2 since they are no longer doing an online store.

Its a pretty simple process though it can end up costing abit if you order too much at once, increase in weight also makes the shipping cost go up unless they are light plus helps if the items are small. Think i've ordered around 60ish items via this method ^_^
