Aura wasn't "safe" and "hidden" so much as brainwashed, hit with an amnesia stick, kidnapped, and then dropped off a bridge. Numerous things about the MaMa incident have yet to be resolved - there are still dangerous believers out there, and their full role in the history of .hack needs to be established a bit more.Vallen wrote:Did the whole "mama" thing get resolved?Erroneous wrote:Thanatos = Aura's back and being kept safe and hidden.
This is obnoxious because it was alluded that he was back, then alluded that he was still missing, and now it's being alluded that they're really going to bring him back, but all of it is just allusions and they haven't been very specific about him, ever. Hopefully Last Recode will put some nails in all of it, considering Returner is otherwise actually really important to the events of the 3rd Season.Lindz wrote:Ovan's apparently still missing.
This one is annoying because they've retconned that guy so many times. I'm pretty sure they've hammered down that this isn't Tarvos being lost after R:X, so in that case it could be basically anything. If we're super lucky the fact that they're including the Terminal Disc in Last Recode and want to use it as a launchboard for more games means that they might put that in.Lindz wrote:Theres also the 13th Bansyoya file and what it entails.
I would really like to see this.(Phantom) Thief wrote:Believe it or not (And if I can ever find the link again), there was a description of what happened to Ovan after G.U., that I found on a Japanese Blog that talked about what CC2 covered during one of the .hack//T.E. events. However, I'm not sure accurate the information really is. I also kinda wanted to hold back on saying anything until I either translated it myself to with some sort of mind blowing post on Ovan or finally gave up and handed it over to Kuukai. (I think your right about the Bansyoya File) And why Naviko still isn't ruler of the game is still a mystery for me.
As in, her fate? This is definitely a big unknown, although it's hinted she's still out there and Tokio retains powers from her.(Phantom) Thief wrote:AIKA!!!!!
We will never know her true identity.(Phantom) Thief wrote:Helba

She's Erna, we know just about everything about this but it would be nice to see it dramatized in some way.(Phantom) Thief wrote:Emma Wielant

If Jotaro Amagi could be fixed, it's possible he could be. Otherwise he's probably been corrupted or Outer Dependency Syndromed away by now.(Phantom) Thief wrote:The final fate of Harald Hoewick (Dude is still stuck in the game technically)
Doesn't exist, is an alternate history based on distortions in the Akashic Records. That said, both Cubia and the Akashic Records being part of the game, he is one potential manifestation of Cubia.(Phantom) Thief wrote:Cubia XXXX - from the main timeline
Doesn't exist, is an alternate history based on distortions in the Akashic Records. He is a wandering AI that spawned from Haseo's rage toward Ovan. Haseo took him in as his responsibility and he ceased to be along with the other Twilight Knights. It would be interesting if they somehow worked Trilogy elements such as B-st Form or Liar's Smile into Last Recode, but I wouldn't count on it (even though it's an amazing song and Link used it well).(Phantom) Thief wrote:Beast of Apocalypse from the main timeline

With Link they answered a lot of open questions about the past, and even about Link itself, while working in the non-canon and incomplete elements in a workable way and setting up an epic overall plot that can receive an "ending." I think they are working towards an end to at least this overall arc but they need Bandai Namco funding in order to do that on the scale anyone would want.Lindz wrote:With Bullet and New World over I was remembering this thread an got to wondering:
Did/Does CC2 have an endgame in mind?
Leaving some stuff unresolved for the sake of mystery or future development is all well an good. But overall just how many games/sagas were they intending with .hack and the whole online game affecting the real world stuff? Theres a long history of stories in just about any medium ending without closure due to various reasons. Somehow I feel like New World / N.U. wouldn't have been the end of things even if it hadn't gotten shuttered. An that kinda gives the impression they were gonna keep on at it until the well dried up without regard to overall story? Re-reading the posts here kinda makes it feel that way, what with how theres so many characters/things unlikely to be touched on again.
Was there news about that?Vallen wrote:I would guess stuff to do with the real world, since supposedly we'll see Haseo's player irl
Exactly - Kikuya Megane's team was too busy working on the actual game to keep up with the manga advertisement for it.Keyaki wrote:It got canceled.
