Storyline

In the first volume of the .hack//Liminality series, a Japanese school girl Mai Minase and her friend Tomonari Kasumi became unconscious from playing an online computer game and was rushed to the hospital. Fortunately, Mai Minase regained consciousness, but Tomonari remains in a comatose state. Later after the incident, Mai is one day on her way to school until she ran into a man named Junichiro Tokuoka who claims to know what caused her friend Tomonari to be in a coma. At that time, Mai doesn't know or believes him. Later, Mai had no choice but to believe Tokuoka and tries to find out how the popular online game, "The World" did this to Tomonari. Can Mai and Tokuoka find out clues about "The World" and wake Tomonari Kasumi up out of his coma? Written by kong_oliver@hotmail.com

Worth watching if you are a die-hard fan
30 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Definitely an interesting story, this anime short is only (as far as I'm aware) available on a bonus disc with .hack//infection, and I don't think anyone would rush out to the shops to buy it if it was released as an individual disc.

That having being said, however, I found it a very enjoyable watch. The animation was good, the music was excellent and the plot did help me further understand the goings-on in The World; it also made me listen out whilst playing the game for a certain sound (you have to watch it to understand what I mean).

Intriguing and mysterious, it definitely made me want to go and buy the next game so I could get volume 2, but I think that people with only a mild interest in the story should not bother forking out for it.
