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.Written by
Not to say that .hack//LOTB isn't good, which it is. But it is not what you would expect from the dark world of .hack. In this series there are only 12 episodes, so it cuts right to the chase and dispenses with the lengthy conversations from SIGN and Liminality. But it isn't as suspenseful as the two previous series. The soundtrack does a good job setting the tone for a more light hearted adventure as it seems that is a bit more goofy than SIGN or Liminality. But the characters aren't as mature as they were in SIGN, so neither will be the music. The animation, is as usual darn near perfect. The voices were alright, but they could've done better with Shugo and Rena. And even though I said the series isn't as suspenseful, that doesn't mean it lacks it's moments. But with a short series, you can't do as much like SIGN, or with out the right mix and right story like the games or Liminality. Have fun looking for all the references to the previous series especially when a character returns to defend justice! Still a good show, but watch it, read the manga, and make your own decisions. There is a great difference between the two.
