Actually he retweeted with no comment, along with a lot of other headlines, and then he tweeted something else unrelated that some people misinterpreted because of the article.

Holy crap how did I miss the David thing?
Not going to bloat much, but the David character is based on my life story. :lol:

I was asking about the introduction. For such an important role how the character was mentioned seems kind of minor.

Please don't tell me you waltz around in a black trench coat and glasses, whispering I am bad-ass all day. If so then I might have to steal a trench coat or three. But seriously though the article should have more information why not look through it some more and post it on the main page. It has some new screen shots.

Grr... telling me how to do my job... You're absolutely right though, and this is the first time I'm admitting this in the history of people telling me how to do my job. I'm ashamed to have missed this. As soon as I get the time, I'll try to craft an update...

I did not mean it that way. For now I just want to know if the information is correct. No matter how much the page stares back at me I have this sense of odd disbelief about the name David yet there it is.

Yea, it was fine with Shugo, Rena and the Azure Flame Knights but now its just getting annoying. Though I suppose it shows how much of an impact the .Hackers made on The World.

Agreed but I can accept it for the movie. If we condense their model design with all the different AI there are around four at maximum; Kite: Shugo, Azure Flame Knight, Sakuya, Kite (Sora). The same applies for Balmung: (Azure Sky Knight, Tobias), Orca: (Azure Sea Knight, Gord) and Blackrose: (Rena, Mary & Mimiru if you want to be technical).

But less than most would expect right? To be fair however Sakuya's design seems unnecessary. I have not read Quantum introduction but at least the other twin blade models have their own plot and atheistic purposes.

What are the odds that all these different groups of friends who started playing the game at different times all modeled there characters after the dot hackers who some of them didn't even know about its just to much don't you think

I may made some baseless assumption, but, in the 12 minutes trailer, the black-haired boy with glasses was hospitalized,
and it remind me of Orca (since Yasuhiko in the end of .hack//xxxx pictured as black haired glassed boy too)
of course i can be mistaken too...

it seems like history repeat itself?

and 'Balmung' confess to 'Kite' :9
