Four years after the Twilight incident in the .hack video games, stability has seemingly returned to the on-line RPG "The World." Shugo and Rena, twin siblings who are living apart from each other, mysteriously acquire the player models of the .hackers: Kite and BlackRose, respectively. But invincible monsters have now made their way into the game - possibly as a result of a group of rogue players. Shugo is given the Twilight Bracelet, a dangerous data-altering item entrusted to the original Kite. Shugo and Rena, along with their newfound friends in the game (including Balmung and Sanjuro, two original players involved with the Twilight conflict), attempt to uncover the secret of these events while also avoiding the Cerulean Knights, a relentless team of system administrators.

This show really doesn't live up to the darkness and mystery of .hack//SIGN. I have to say that I am disappointed. The character voices, I found rather annoying. The Animation was good, but again, lacks what SIGN had. It wasn't dark, it wasn't chilling, it was too light and comical. I don't care if it had more action or not, action alonedoesn't make for better story telling. They made some interesting choices, but still, they really really lack on the suspense of it. It is rather predictable. Not to mention the "What will happen next time" Highlight Videos at the end of every episode. That kind of spoils it in my opinion. This show was good but not good enough. If I had to choose Sign, or this I would chose SIGN. I'm fairly disappointed.
