Was G.U. Returner Canon or no?

Postby shadow of skeith » Fri Jan 02, 2009 5:37 pm

Can we base Returner as canon in the G.U. storyline?

Just out of curiosity to shadow of skeith's question, how?, since this was basically the Unison of G.U.

Unison was purely for fun. Returner actually answered plot points.

Obviously Returner is going to allude to things that happened in G.U., but that doesn't mean it's canon. Unison made allusions to Aura giving Kite a new bracelet at the end of IMOQ, but that didn't make Unison anymore canon.

But because Aura giving Kite a new bracelet also happened in the Games, while in Returner the plot points they cover aren't answered by any other media. Both were for fun, but there's a difference between explaining AIDA's future after the games and simply having a party in Net Slum.

Because Sora never played the game again after waking up, and therefore can't be there for Unison, making it impossible. Not to mention that everyone was behaving out of character.

He went comatose right when SIGN ended, which is before the events of IMOQ, and Unison is set after those events...so yeah, not even alcohol will make something like that possible. Maybe Unison could've been possible if we simply excluded Sora and kept everything else, but it doesn't really make much sense either way.

Returner was much better than Unison... as soon as they started dancing in Unison I stabbed myself in the face

Returner = canon.

Unison was so lame and too happy that people decided it was going to now be uncanon. TRUTH.

At least Returner was happy, in a good way.  Oh and it got more points for the delicious incest end.

What about the Sora AI, that Helba made at the end of Quarintine?

One, Helba didn't make it, she found it.

Two, Sora and Subaru returned as their real selves, and I don't see why Sora would be the exception, especially given that he acts different from the AI.

I thought Returner was... weird. <.<

Not as weird as Unison, but still.

Nothing has happened to make the events of Returner impossible and the .hack peoples havn't said it isn't so, therefore it's canon for all intents and purposes.
